EA has reduced the price of its digital PlayStation 4 titles by £3, lowering the asking price of Battlefield 4, Need For Speed: Rivals, FIFA 14, Madden NFL 25 and NBA Live 14 from £62.99 to £59.99 each.

The reduced price follows the reaction to yesterday's PlayStation Store prices, which revealed that both first-party and third-party digital games would cost more on PS4 than on Xbox One.

Despite the reduction, however, EA's PS4 games remain £5 more expensive than the Xbox One equivalent, which cost £54.99 each on the Xbox Games Store.

Battlefield 4 Premium remains at the inflated price, too, costing £42.99 on PS4 and £39.99 on Xbox One.

EA has yet to respond to VideoGamer.com's request for comment over its digital pricing.

Digital downloads should be cheaper than disc because they don't have to manufacture discs or distribute them physically. This greed from Sony and the devs will kill the game industry if they don't put gamers first and deliver fair prices.

After using the system you need to be online once every 24 hours anyway. Expect the same on PS4. EA demands you log in to their servers to store progress. Forza's use of driveatars means you benefit incredibly by being online. Said it all along always online was not an issue.

If you haven't got an internet connection don't buy one of these consoles as nothing will work. That is a fact. Day one updates are a must on both of them.

As for digital games PSN always tended to be more expensive on new large games as they (Sony) historically charged a higher fee for publishing them probably the same now which means the fee gets passed to the consumer. One benefit is that they are giving breaks to independents this gen but it would seem at the detriment to the big players.

I'm the same, I still haven't forgiven Microsoft for everything they've backpedalled on since E3. In this particular instance, silly digital prices were to be expected because there are gamers out there willing to pay those prices, so I'm only miffed at both camps because they're not prepared to kick bricks and mortar retails into touch by offering digital games at £30 and promoting the whole digital markplace properly. Maybe next gen...

Am I the only one whose opinion doesn't change when they backpedal (like MS with the whole always online *****)? The fact that they realize they are getting a lot of complains doesn't mean that the company is any better than before!
