Apparent UK Price Hike On The Beta Dashboard Is “Unintended Error”

…Part of the beta process???…

Keeping in mind that there is an NDA on the new dashboard beta, however as soon as a purchase is made this comes under contract of sale law in the UK and it’s process of being tied to an NDA is questionable under the sale of goods act in the UK for consumers.  Those who attempted to make purchases from the beta dashboard in the UK have noticed a reported 30% price hike!

The good news is that Microsoft tells Joystiq. It’s just part of the beta process – so perhaps you should hold off your purchases until this error is sorted.

“We are aware that select regions experienced some incorrect game title pricing in the Xbox Live beta. This was an unintended error that we are in the process of fixing,” a Microsoft spokesperson said. “We’ll be reimbursing impacted beta participants for the difference in what was paid and what the price will be after the update is available to all members.

“Of note, beta programs give us a chance to test, fix and correct issues like this. As with all betas, we take the learnings from our program and make corrections and adjustments prior to the update being available to all members. As always, we appreciate the participation of our beta customers in helping us launch and build great products.”
