    Why are XBOX games on MS store so much expensive in my country?


    Most if not all the games on my local country MS store (Israel) is way more expensive than the same games on the US store.

    For example Lego Marvel`s avengers for Xbox ONE is 19.99 USD on the US page but 80 USD after currency convert in the Israel store page.



    The price difference makes no sense! who decides on the values of games in each country?



    The prices in the US based store seems to be what they are and not related to any sales or a promotion.



    someone please explain this.



    Thanks you.

    :)

  2. Xbox Game Prices vs Playstation (and digital vs physical)

    What? For real? Why the heck do they make the Xbox One games more expensive? Why doesn't MS tell them, "hey these games are cheaper elsewhere and will make us lose customers?"

    I decided to go full digital but honestly I think it was a huge mistake. The same games on the Playstation store and physical copies at stores are way cheaper.

    Still doesn't really answer my question on why digital games are more expensive than physical materials. It makes no sense. MS should take control of their store.

    Prices for digital games compared to discs

    Can anyone from MS give a reason as to why Digital Games are generally more expensive than the disc version of the same game?? i'm pretty sure digital versions of the games are cutting out the middle man (Game Stores and disc creation) so why are they more
    expensive??

    Sorry to hear you're upset. Xbox does not set the price of the products in their store unless they are the publishing company. It's the developer and publisher that set the prices.

    In the case of the price difference in Isreal you'll need to check your government regulations associated with buying and selling products from other countries. Government legislation from different countries plays a big part in the pricing of products.

    Prices are made by the publisher's, not Microsoft.

    Digital Download Cheaper?

    I don't people argue that digital should be cheaper per say, but they can't understand why they are so much more expensive.

    The main reason, is shops don't sell the digital download codes for consoles (or very rarely), and i have no idea why.

    I would love TF on DD, but the only place you can buy it is the MS store on XO, and its always going to be more expensive than buy it in a retail store.
