When it comes to launch titles on new consoles, Ubisoft has always been a strong supporter and its a policy that has worked well for them. Ubisoft always seems positive regarding the launch of new hardware and that won't change with the Xbox One. According to CEO Yves Guillemot, Ubisoft is happy with the changes to its used game policy, and it reckons the "price is right" when it comes to the Xbox One.
Some speculated that publishers like EA and Ubisoft were behind Microsoft's decision to limit trades on the Xbox One, but Guillemot seemed to support Microsoft's response to consumers.
"I think consumers didn't like their approach, so the fact they went back and listened to the consumers and gave them something different is a good move to ensure the new consoles [achieve] their potential," said Guillemot, speaking to Games Industry International.
And the price? The Xbox One is $50 more expensive than the PS4 here in Australia, but in the US? The difference is $100. Far more significant, but Guillemot thinks the price is fair.
"For the hardware they're putting on the market, the price is right," he claimed. "They are offering machines that will be exceptional, and for those prices, they're good deals."
