We the other European get the games and the consoles at the same numerical value as the dollar. Example: PS4 is 400$ and 400€ but 400€=514$ that mean that we other Europeans get pay a lot more ! NOW YOU WILL FEEL A LITTLE OF OUR MISFORTUNE.

So UK STOP WINNING !

Edit:
Actually nvm, 349 pounds = 400€, IT'S WITH THE MURICANS THAT WE SHOULD BE PISSED OFF.

The answer is do not go to Game. It's amazon and the supermarkets which will set the price for next gen games as they can afford to take a loss/less profit on big items. Game and other shops like that could try to charge that much but if Sainsbury's is selling the same game just down the road at a much smaller price they will lose out and will have to compete by lowering the price. I remember the insane MW2 price Sainsbury's did on Modern Warfare 2's release.

Yes, I remember those days when everybody rushed to the supermarkets to get COD at £10-15 cheaper prices.
Problem is, Amazon are asking the same amount for the games as are Tesco, with Asda not stating prices yet.

Supermarkets only really do good deals on certain big name games like COD, a lot of gamers are still going to be flocking to either Game or Amazon for the majority of games and if the pricing stays the same then they've pulled a lucrative wammy on our arses.

I'm tired of games getting more expensive with even less content in them. I really do hope the price stays at what is affordable for a majority of people.

This is sad but true.
OT: I've been asked to join Necessarygaming, should I?

Why not? It seems a decent site, depends on whether you need a change from Century Gaming or if your happy staying put.

UK retailers always put the price of console launch games high to take advantage of hype machine. It happened with the Wii U, PS3 & 360 too.

abradley1289d ago (Edited 1289d ago )

Doesn't mean it's right. It also doesn't mean it'll ever go down. If, due to the massive hype for both consoles the games sell well enough, do you think they'll want to reduce the price again.

I think we've seen from DLC, how greedy some companies can be.

Edit: Grassyknoll

Maybe, I guess it's a good thing I ain't allowed to get either on release then. Should save me a few bob, just don't like the idea of others getting ripped off. Cheers for your insight Grassyknoll.

The prices will drop, but they will take advantage of eager gamers unfortunately. Games could be more expensive (upon release) up to about 6 months to a year (depending on how sales pan out). Closer to launch retailers may get more competitive with each other, especially online ones.
