Atari prices 360 game higher than other platforms

atariVideogames aren’t cheap and unless one has an incredibly large expendable income, buying an interactive experience, for most of us, is not done lightly. The game has to be good, and more importantly, the price is right.

So it has to make one wonder just what the heck Atari games is thinking of when they announced there would be different prices for their upcoming game Conflict: Denied Ops by Pivotal Games.

The only good point about this story is that this pricing variation has not hit the states. Our friends down under are not so fortunate. Conflict: Denied Ops will be priced at $69.95 on the PC, $99.95 for the PS3, and $109.95 for the Xbox 360. There has been no information about why Xbox 360 owners have to pay more.

We should all be worried about this.

There is no reason different platform versions of a game should cost different amounts. Sure there are some acceptable examples between the PC and console world, but charging someone more on the Xbox 360 or PS3 with no explanation doesn’t make much sense. I may not have a degree in business, but I think I am safe in saying that this isn’t a good move for the Conflict: Denied Ops game.
