Microsoft doesn’t exactly need any more negative publicity for the Xbox One, which is why the company was eager to quash rumors that it would start charging more for games on its next-generation console. A Microsoft representative told Polygon late last week that it will sell new Xbox One games for $60 each, the same price that it charges for Xbox 360 games and the same price that Sony will charge for games on the PlayStation 4. The Xbox One has generated quite a bit of controversy in the gaming community for its connectivity and used games policies, and it has also been criticized for being $100 more expensive than the Playstation 4 because of the mandatory inclusion of its next-generation Kinect sensor.
