TGS: Next-Gen Will Offer More Bang For Your Buck

TGS: Next-gen will be "excellent value for money," says Moore Limited edition packs and premium content downloads play a big role in game price tags Microsoft Xbox VP Peter Moore has said that initiatives such as premium content downloads will offer great "value for money" for Xbox 360 consumers. Responding to a question about the pricing of next-generation games, Moore refused to be drawn on overall pricing strategies - saying that software prices are the prerogative of individual publishers, not of Microsoft. However, he predicted that many games may be offered in limited edition bundles, similar to the already announced Perfect Dark Zero bundle, which costs an additional $10 but adds a significant amount of bonus content to the title, and that premium downloads costing "maybe another $5" will also be a key strategy for publishers. "I think consumers will get excellent value for money for what they’re going to be paying in the next generation," he concluded. Moore also spoke at length in the interview, the first part of which is published today on the site, about the firm’s software strategies in the different worldwide markets, the challenges posed by Japan, and the company’s plans to meet global demand for Xbox 360 in the run-up to Christmas. He also discusses the question of High Definition gaming, which relies on the user having a HDTV set - pointing out that "by 2008, there will be over 100 million high definition televisions available in the world, and being bought at an amazing rate."
