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?
In Norway, base game now cost about 50 $, ep's 42 $.
That's really not expensive here, I work at a grocery store and I make 50 $ in 2 hours at work
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.
See, that's why you need to be more like me. It's pretty obvious that I'm a big, terrible, mean person. If somebody says I am a terrible, mean person, I will just grin evilly....and be mean to them! It's good to be bad. *J.M. Pescado*
