Big news from Microsoft today, as they announced via the App Hub, the official MS forums where XBLIG developers gather, a new change in the pricing frequency. Starting May 23rd developers will have the opportunity to change the price of their title every 7 days, as opposed to the previous standard which was set at 90, stating it “gives [the developer] the freedom to experiment with different price points.”
Microsoft had last made sweeping changes in January of this year, which included larger overall game sizes, games below 150 MB could be prices at 80 MSP, and developers could release more titles under one account. Many developers jumped at the opportunity to drop the cost of their game to the sweet spot that seems to be 80 MSP as soon as they had the opportunity.
How do you guys feel about the change? Is it too little too late, or is it reassurance that Microsoft is listening to the developers?
