This £99 price has been mentioned from two different and reasonably reliable sources (Game is one of them).
It's not supposed to be common knowledge - more of an Xbox party spoiler which does make an awful lot of sense.
Don't take this as fact - it's strictly a rumour but it's been backed up with some reasonable information.
