Yet you make the UK pay £149.99 for the collectors edition...hmmmm

Nitrowolf2809d ago

Bungie isn't, Activision is. They are the publishers, meaning they set the prices of the game that they are distributing

-Foxtrot809d ago

They could of said something though, I mean Activision are lucky to have Bungie.

Vurczi809d ago

True that it isn't Bungie who set the price, but it's neither Activision. Actually, the UK price was set by the only retailer that will be seeling the Edition, GAME.co.uk...

Whitefeather809d ago

There is also other reasons the price is so high like taxes and other things.

@Vurczi

Bungie/Activision set the price, Bungie has sway of the price since they are the IP holders, and Activision can sell the game at a lower price.

However they usually want high profits so they sell the game at a higher price than usual. It's why Activision games are often £45+ even online.

atleast people in the UK pay less for normal games, I still pay 60-65 euro's for a game which equals to 82-88 dollars while in America they just pay $60.

sashimi809d ago

we do have sales tax you know, for me its usually $65ish after tax but still a lot less than the $82-88.

SpitFireAce85809d ago

I pay 48.99+ Tax so $52.19 with gamersclub
unlocked from BestBuy sorry man i feel ur pain.

I pay 90-100 USD for a standard AAA game.
COD/FIFA is like 600-700 here (Digital) which translates to around a hundred bucks.

Sweden is one of the best places on earth (economically/socially etc) but its fucking expensive.

Sweden is one of the best places economically...but its really expensive. I dont know enough about it, u hav actually piqued my interest. But, if games cost that much, unless ur minimum wage is 15 USD, something is out of whack.
