Update

EA drops FIFA 13 price for PS3, PC

Following Redington’s announcement that FIFA 13 will be priced at Rs 2,999 on Xbox 360, Milestone has followed suit by informing retailers that the game will also be priced at Rs 2,999 on PS3, while the PC version now drops to Rs 1,499.

EA will also follow the same pricing for this year's other upcoming titles, such as Medal of Honor: Warfighter and Need for Speed: Most Wanted.

Milestone had earlier set the price for FIFA 13 at Rs 3,499 on PS3 and Rs 1,799 on PC, prompting a negative response from consumers on EA’s India Facebook page as well as on the IVG forums.

While the PS3 and PC prices have been reduced, no drop in price has yet been announced for the PSP (Rs 1,799), PS2 (Rs 999) and PS Vita (Rs 2,799) versions.

Best form of protest is DONT BUY GAMES at those prices and let those idiots know when the sales drop. You can surely live without few games, right?

Trust me when I say MISL isn't behind this. They stand to lose out because they'll have to project lower quantity @ 3499 versus what they'd do @ 2499. They have no reason to advise EA to hike up the price.

I think this has more to do with the fact that EA's management has changed and they have different objectives this time around. And by "objectives" I mean this:

I am guessing they are planning to move out of Indian market.

Well I guess I am done with Origin. And if retail PC games are the same price I am done with EA.

I wouldnt be too upset with that either. Always felt like I needed to take a shower everytime I bought a EA game new.

Perhaps the world is not made. Perhaps nothing is made. A clock without a craftsman. It's too late. Always has been, always will be.....too late.

These prices are obscene. I hope Milestone sees this thread and passes the link on to EA :|
