Since the Xbox 360’s service “Games on Demand” launched, it has been criticized for pricing its games too high. Some games are priced accordingly, while sometimes other games are more expensive than their retail counterpart. Considering that by digitally selling games, Microsoft saves money on the manufacturing costs, it’s baffling that they price some of these games so high, when by going to GameStop or Amazon.com, you can get a physical copy for less.
Microsoft came forward to defend its service. They said: “No one retailer has the lowest pricing for every product, and our program is about giving people 24 x 7 convenience and selection when shopping for Xbox 360 games. We’re incredibly excited about what Games on Demand means for digital distribution, and will continue to evaluate and evolve the service to meet market and consumer demands.”
So, what do you think about the pricing of games on “Games on Demand”?
