    Xbox UK Digital Store Overcharging The Werewolf: The Apocalypse Earthblood DLCs


    Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood released recently, The UK digital store had it selling the Gaia bundle for £49.99 which included the game and both of the DLCS 'Champion of Gaia' and 'The Exiled One.' However at launch 'The Exiled One' was removed from the bundle since it was a pre order bonus and the price of what remained rose to £54.99. The two DLCs on UK Xbox are selling for £10.74 and £4.19 respectively however on PC and Playstation those DLCs are selling for £9.99 and £3.99 respectively. and on PC the Gaia bundle is £39.99 and on Playstation it is still £49.99. It appears to me that Microsoft deliberately increased the DLCs prices in order so they could get away with charging £5 extra for the bundle.

    I've tried contacting them and tried to convince them to price match with Playstation at least and offer me a way to get the game bundle at the £49.99 price but they are refusing to do so. Why should us Xbox gamers have to pay more to fully enjoy the game compared to everyone else, and is there any way I can convince them to lower the price or get it at a better deal, I much prefer to buy the game digitally and don't want to have to wait for a sale in order to get it cheaper. What are my rights and who can I contact outside of Microsoft who can put pressure on Microsoft to lower the prices? I know Microsoft have full control over setting of the prices, but they shouldn't be allowed to rip off Xbox gamers and would be unfair if we couldn't challenge them if we felt they were unfairly overcharging us compared to everyone else. I know it's just DLCs but it's the principle of it, if they can get away with overcharging for DLC what else could they get away with.

    Microsoft does not have full control over the prices, this is down to the publisher. Unless a game is published directly by Microsoft then it's the publisher you need to air Your Grievances to, in this case it will be Nacon.

    When you buy a game from the Microsoft store MS only take a small chunk of the proceeds, the rest goes to the publisher/developer.

    I have contacted Nacon and they contradict that statement saying it's up to the resellers to set the prices, which in this case is Microsoft, I have contacted Microsoft Store support and they claim the 'Higher ups' are the ones responsible for raising the prices of the DLCs and the bundle. All I want is for microsoft to sell the DLC and bundle for the same price as Playstation are, but I fear Microsoft are being greedy here.

    Reduced Price Digital Download?

    In the UK, on the Xbox store, Assasins Creed: Black Flag, Titanfall, Cod Ghosts, Battlefield 4, Fifa 14 and more are all £54, this is $92 US, how is this acceptable? Downloading digital games for the Xbox One is more expensive than buying the discs, there
    is no physical product to manufacture, no distribution costs and no middle men. These should be CHEAPER than in store discs, i cannot comprehend how you find it fine to repeatedly screw over UK players, this is ridiculous. The question im asking is, what happened
    to your "competetive pricing" assertions at the start of the year? Given up? Happy overcharging?

    picked up dawngaurd yesterday for 800...a couple questions

    Just a note to mention, there IS NO werewolf storyline/path with Dawnguard. The werewolf story was already existing in the game. The DLC only adds a new perk tree to being a werewolf.
