Microsoft: UK ratings could make games more expensive
Not only could UK ratings make games appear later than everywhere else, but now Neil Thompson, Microsoft’s senior regional director for EDD in the UK and Ireland, says that it could make games more expensive.
“We’re in the business of providing great games to a broad audience of gamers, and we need to be able to fulfil that role by getting products to consumers quickly and at a good price,” said Thompson in an interview with GI.
“We’re concerned with any measures that would mean this process is made more unwieldy, or incurs additional costs which have to be shared with the consumer.”
Brilliant news that, I’m sure you’ll all agree.
