What makes me mad is the fact that the digital download is the same. freaking. price as the box. They used to make excuses for how expensive games were: "It's the nice packaging and getting it out to stores." And yet the digital download is the same price!!

Last time I saw, it was around $489 MXN (around $39 USD) the game by itself, with the expansions roughly at the same price, in a Office Depot somewhere in Mexicali. Then again, the prices vary a lot per store here.

Yep, games in Australia are ridiculously expensive. It should be noted that it's not just EA though. If your looking to buy any new game for PC it would be around the $100 mark. Yes, it's stupid, but there are reasons for it. Mostly that games need to be shipped to (and around) Aus, that the Australian companies have to buy from UK, US and Japanese markets so you have to deal with all of those economic dealies, and lastly, that because they have been this price for so long people are used to it.

I'm in the UK, waiting for Pets to go below 20. ($30). You can get it new on Amazon for 25, but usually they drop to below 20 within 6 weeks or so....and it just hasn't happened this time round! Still 25, getting a bit frustrated - I might have bought it new in October if had known, but prefer to wait till mods/cc have been updated and bugs to be fixed.

Hsa anyone else in the UK noticed Pets has been more expensive for longer?

Can I move in with you and get a job at the grocery store? I make about 40 cents more than a grocery store worker here and make 16 dollars in two hours. The Sims 3 is still 40 dollars here on Origin, but I can snag it on Amazon for 25 dollars. Expansion packs go from 30-40 dollars, and stuff packs at 15-20.

Why do the Expansion Packs cost just as much as the game itself!?

I'm in Canada, and it was about 50$ for me. And I... I mean, my mum bought it for me when it first came out.

Pirated copies, eh? Your country's not the only one. You can hardly find anything NOT pirated in Indonesia. Sims DVDs there costs around $3-4.

In Sweden the basegame cost around 60$, expantions 52-53$ and stuffpacks around 30$ when you buy from origin.
However, at some stores in sweden the prize is either higher or lower.

Well, when you take the EP's / premium content into consideration, it makes it pretty much the most expensive game ever.
And of course, it's the most buggy game. Even pushing past Fallout. Way to go.

$53 for regular and LE in The Netherlands $59 for the KP edition. Though you can find it for cheaper if you know where to look.

It was $30 for the base game and $30 for each Expansion pack. (Is it any wonder I only bought 2? I don't see the point of buying something I don't want with money I don't have.)

Eh, where? The last time I checked, The Sims 3 basegame costs almost $50, while the Expansions range from $30-50. Unless there's a promotion/discount event.
