PS4 vs Xbox One War Hots Up
Yep, Microsoft today confirmed that the RRP for its Xbox One titles will be fifty of your hard earned pounds. Some of the launch date releases are up on the manufacturer's online store including Ryse, Dead Rising 3, Forza Motorsport 5 and Kinect Sport Rivals at 49.99 - well, it's close enough right?

Now, according to the usually very accurate analyst, Colin Sebastian for Robert W. Baird & Co. Incorporated, Research Division, the Xbox One may have "a 2-3x unit advantage" at launch over the PS4. He seems to think that both consoles will have launch shortages and that gutting their DRM policy has done wonders for Microsoft's upcoming system.

The pricing of these titles will sway the outcome of the PS4/Xbone battle for the gaming market. According to Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter's bold statement, the PS4 will be the cheaper console option, but what of the game prices? Check back for more as it unfolds.

Looking on his profile on their website, I'm assuming Colin Sebastian is just looking at the US retail landscape.

Xbox One certainly won't have a 2-3x advantage in Japan!
