Why? Just basically why? What does third party have to pay that means consumers have to take the costs of the company for?

Third party determines their own pricing by the looks of things.

Really fancy Powerstar Golf it looks a lot of fun.

Considering the prices are staying the same in the US we are getting majority ripped off and even so now that it is not £49 as speculated but £54.99 for most AAA third party games.

The Wii U digital store is exactly the same. Way overpriced.

Pirate's Creed is £48 on amazon. So much for going digital only this gen. If I remember correctly MS said something about being able to lower the prices for digital sales before they backtracked on the drm. I think their excuse was that if every sale for a game sent some money to the devs/publisher then they could afford the lower prices.

Third party pricing is the same issue for Sony and Nintendo, not great for the customer.

But, as Karlius said, the golf game looks great for the price and I'm tempted to get that with the remaining credit after getting Forza.

This is the reason I won't be going all digital next-gen. The prices are absolutely ridiculous! I saw Fuse being sold at a whopping £59.99 on the PSN store! What a ripoff!
