I went to download the fifa demo on my xbone and it's showing as $4.99. Price error or EA at their finest?

Just an fyi the FIFA demo was free on PS4 as of last week. Wonder why the disparity?

Edited to add on PS4. A very important detail

What the hell ? Is this true ? EA must be nuts. Fuck this awful company. I knew why I boycott them several years already. (except FIFA 14 but that was my last FIFA too)

Edit: I see it was an error but I still want to rant

Tried.

Both still showing paid for me. I clicked on it for shits and giggles and it will definitely charge my credit card if I went a step further.

I honestly did not believe you, but it was $6.99. Actually while typing this I double checked and it now says Free. So looks like it was an error.

Someone buy this so you can see if they give you your money back or maybe a personal apology.
Make it a big deal and take it to Kotaku.

This is clearly MS trying to bridge the gap between PS4 and Xbone in terms of $$. Next is full DRM and 24hr checks.

Joke

Fixed in Australia, showing Free now.
