Those of you looking at the Watch Dogs digital price and how it compares to Asda, Tesco, and GAME UK might get a little annoyed today and wonder why the price is so high? On the US Sony PSN store you can see the standard digital download has a price of $59.99, as seen in the screenshot below, and this compares to the same download in the UK costing £54.99.
There’s two ways to look at digital pricing on PS4 and Xbox One. Firstly, the price should be less thanks to not having the cost of a retail box and disc, although others feel the price should be higher not to hurt sales of retail boxed versions.
How the Watch Dogs digital price compares to UK stores – as we mentioned above, the UK digital download for Watch Dogs Classic Edition is £54.99. This compares to GAME UK offering a similar version for a lower price of £46.99, although you can pay a lot more if you opt for a special edition like Dedsec or Vigilante that could see the price double thanks to extras.
How do you feel about Watch Dogs digital PSN prices being higher than retail boxed versions? The Watch Dogs price at Argos starts at £52.99 for both Xbox One and PS4. Tesco price their versions even lower at £44 for PS4/Xbox One, £35 for PC, Wii U at £40, and PS3/XBox 360 at £42. Asda and Tesco like to match each other on price, and this is just the case with Watch Dogs on PS4 and Xbox One with some other platforms coming in slightly less.
If you have already purchased the game, then you might want to download the Watch Dogs ctOS app for iPhone and Android, which is live right now.
