I'm sure it's just a placeholder.

i think they used the same placeholder for when the PS3 and Xbox 360 came out. I would venture to say that the games will stay the same 59 to 69 mark because people already complain about that being to high.

that sounds too much. If they are not selling XB1 at loss - they should implement variable pricing.

Most games today cost around $100, that's including all the DLCs.

There is no way Xbox One games will be $99, absolutely no way. If you bought 5 games, that's $500, but even at $60 its $300! With how expensive games are, consoles should just be free!

Link to the main game page for the Xbox One games and it's price at $59.99. Could be a mistake on Amazon part.

The UK pricing is equally as ridiculous, as always £55($90) & £90 ($140) for a controller, insanity

I don't know why we have to go through this every time. On top of what you said, there's the whole...

Game prices are not going up... inflation countered by DRM.

Just ordered my X1 off of Amazon US


Not for me. All these games they showed today are NOT a must own whatsoever!

The closest game that screams Must-Own is Quantum Break, but 1) haven't seen enough 2) It alone is not enough to get Xbox One at launch!
