The pricing is only for Japan. It'll most likely cost $60 in the states.

A conversion rate doesn't give you an exact representation of how much a game is worth. There can be big differences even with the same currency. For example, a $50,000 salary in California is worth a lot less than a $50,000 salary on the East Coast because of the cost of living. Then imagine how big the difference is across different currencies.

It's good to see someone else on this site that understands that not only are conversion rates a factor, but so is cost of living. A lot of people can't seem to grasp it.

In the Navy, we actually receive bonus cost of living payments based on where we live.

Its why you see people on cruise lines working minimum wage for all the insane amount of work they do. When they go back to where they live they can retire pretty rich. I talked to one of the guys working once saying that he could basically retire at age 40 and have a house on the beach.

Also why you see a lot of doctors and scientists from countries where their country is not stable working jobs as taxi man etc. and sending their money back to their family.

One of my friends that was from Ukraine was one of top ranked opera singers in his country and a professional doctor and now is a checker in a grocery store sending money back to his kids.

With the US dollar falling hugely over the past few months and past year.. especially the last two months hurts any importers of newer titles.. they have to cover their original cost.. it's not that the price is high.. it's that the US dollar isn't worth sh*t.
