Games "Microsoft has sensationally abandoned its controversial plans to restrict the sharing of XBox One games, and has also removed daily online authentication requirements for its forthcoming console", reports The Guardian. They had no choice. Still a good move.

here in the UK, Xbox Live is consistently either twice as expensive or a third more expensive. Game, Tesco's and even HMV will stock games cheaper in their physical form then on XBL.

In the UK it's purely convenience that sells digital distributed games,

I used to work at Tesco mate (stock control) and large stores can dictate the price that they sell at which is the whole point. Tesco pretty much will kill off a lot of smaller more dedicated chains (is HMV dead yet? I haven't been back to the UK in about 2 years).

Most game stores are owned by I believe it is electronics boutique.

These guys set the prices, which dictate the online prices.
