Why is Rayman $60 to download but $40 at retailers?

You can't say you're experimenting in digital savings when you let the publisher hike up the price by $20.

Ummmm WTF?! That's stupid.

Already a thread on this on this page but publishers set the price.

UBIsoft needs to adjust this price accordingly.

Paying a premium for a digital version makes no sense.

Prices should at least have parity if not offer a discount for the digital version.

This is coming from someone who buys all their games digitally now.

the bitter truth is that in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is probably more meaningful than our criticism designating it so. ~ Anton Ego

It's not 60, it's 39.99.


Ok good. I was considering getting it digitally. My daughter would love it and the less she messes with discs the better.

It still shows up as $59.99 on xbox.com.

Unless people are seeing a different price on their Xbox One (I'm not at home), then there is still a $20 delta between retail and digital versions.

Nope I was wrong, sorry was looking at the 360 version. This is an odd one.

Unfortunately it really is $59.99 on XBL right now, $39.99 apparently just applies to retail. Another MS unforced error, and in the midst of resolutiongate ... ugh. Hopefully this is wrong, they get it fixed quickly and it doesn't become another lightning rod for criticism.

Here is the reply I got from UBISoft

"Thanks for your support of Rayman Legends! We're currently investigating the Xbox One digital price difference and appreciate your patience as we look into things"
