Microsoft won't set the price for Xbox One games and will leave the price point of next-gen games up to publishers, Microsoft Studios corporate vice president Phil Spencer told Polygon today.
When asked about how games might be priced on the newly announced Xbox One console, Spencer said that's not up to Microsoft.
"As a console holder, we don't actually set pricing," Spencer said. "We actually don't even recommend pricing. Honestly, we don't. Pricing is a publisher-consumer-retailer proposition, something we enable [in] a marketplace for digital content and retail. We'll price our first-party games."
When asked about prices for games published by Microsoft, he declined to be specific.
"We're not announcing the pricing of our first-party games here, but we'll be market competitive with the games we're releasing," he said.
