Posted on Jul 10, 2013 | Source: IGN
UK Xbox gamers involved in beta-testing for the next Xbox Dashboard update are experiencing significant price hikes as a result of the transition from Microsoft Points to real currency.
Reddit users have been chronicling the changes, observing around a 30% increase in prices on the UK Xbox marketplace. The dashboard update will convert all your existing Microsoft Points to real money, and update the pricing of everything on the Xbox marketplace. Where you can currently buy 1200 MSP for £9.99 in the UK, games previously on sale for 1200 MSP are now listed at £11.99.
Eurogamer reports that 400 MSP games - previously around £3.20 - now cost £4.49, whereas 1600 MSP games have climbed from £13.60 to £14.99. 800 MSP games, previously £6.80, see a huge increase to £8.99.
