Xbox One digital prices and download sizes revealed

The prices and download sizes of the day one digital titles on Xbox One have been revealed and there are certainly some surprises.

Most first party titles come in at £44.99, except £49.99 Zoo Tycoon, which also happens to be one of the smallest downloads. Third party games are around £54.99 although Fighter Within (£49.99) and Just Dance 2014 (£39.99) are cheaper.

Here’s the list:

Angry Birds: Star Wars (1.81GB) – £35.19
Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag (20.25GB) – £54.99
Battlefield 4 (34.3GB) – £54.99
Call of Duty: Ghosts (39.5GB) – £54.99
Call of Duty: Ghosts: Digital Hardened Edition (TBC) – £94.99
Crimson Dragon (6.88GB) – £15.99
Dead Rising 3 (19.9GB) – £44.99
Dead Rising 3: Day One Premium Edition (TBC) – £68.99
FIFA 14 (8.7GB) – £54.99
Fighter Within (11.05GB) – £49.99
Forza Motorsport 5 (31.76GB) – £44.99
Just Dance 2014 (22.79GB) – £39.99
Killer Instinct (3.25GB) – Free
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes (6.38GB) – TBC
LocoCycle (13.17GB) – £15.99
Madden NFL 25 (12.51GB) – £54.99
NBA 2K14 (43.6GB) – £54.99
NBA Live 14 (9.13GB) – £54.99
Need For Speed: Rivals (15.35GB) – £54.99
Powerstar Golf (3.92GB) – £15.99
Ryse: Son of Rome (34.94GB) – £44.99
Xbox Fitness (252.13MB) – Free
Zoo Tycoon (2.62GB) – £49.99 

What do you think? 

We are curious as to why Zoo Tycoon is so expensive when it's only a 2.62GB download. Also, £35.19 for Angry Birds seems quite ambitious, don't you think?

This is exactly what I expected from m$oft. The main reason they wanted DRM so badly. No media, box (instructions and storyline went a long time ago) should keep prices down - instead they charge a premium. Sadly there are too many out there that will opt for this and when they do - eventually everything will be digital and DRM.

why does it cost more a digital copy than a hard copy with these games isn't it suppose to be the other way around?

Steam always costs more too, but where they shine is in the sales, so hoping MS will do similar sales too. Plus MS have said that they are looking at making it possible to trade in digital games, which Steam are not yet doing, but if that happens then they may not do the sales like Steam, but if they do the similar sales, then the Xbox Live store will be better than Steam.

Shopto have the best price on Zoon tycoon for both formats, £29.86 for Xbox 360 and £44.86 for Xbox ONE whereas other sites are £40 and £50 respectively. With Zoo Tycoon on Xbox 360 having Kinect and online features removed it is not worth £40. I did not have enough money to get the Xbox ONE version for now, but did grab the 360 version. If shopto can keep the price at £44.86 for the next week or two then I will get it from here, otherwise will either wait for the price to drop again, and / or buy it digitally. It is the type of game that only ends when you run out of imagination, meaning it has the potential to last forever.

Zoo Tycoon more expensive than Ryse and Dead Rising 3? That's pathetic. Looks like I'll simply be sticking to disc based products for the time being.

It's like a punishment for people who are housebound or have no retail stores

Well now I'm glad they didn't go 100% digital. F***ing £69 for DR3 with 2 bonus outfits? and £35 for Angry Birds? what the actual F! That S*** is £4 on PC.

I believe the game publishers set the price and not Microsoft (unless it's a game by MS). The prices on the PlayStation store are pretty similar already and that's just current gen content. I don't understand why digital is so expensive either. Everything obvious suggests that digital costs less to supply so should be cheaper for consumers, however I have no idea how much money is needed for servers or bandwidth or licencing or anything like that. It would be great to see digital content sold cheaper that physical content, even if only by £5-10 it would make a huge difference. I can't see this happening anytime soon as even Nintendo are over-pricing their digital content.

Yeah, it's funny that people say MS are money grabbers, yet the MS games are actually the cheapest.
