I'm certainly not expecting this to be a hot topic, I'm just hungry. I don't think anybody cares about 20p, the price is the price and if you deem the content worth buying it's what you pay.

"I don't think anybody cares about 20p" ~ Really? I have to disagree because they sure did during last gen comparisons. Now "nobody cares"? Funny how that works.

Eh? This article is about English currency, not pixels :|

LMFAO ~ Whoops! Now that's funny. My apologies & I shall now take the flogging I deserve ;P

Edit: The really funny thing is that a few people agreed with me! Does that mean they misunderstood as well and thought the same? Or something else? LoL

What's this? I seem to have stumbled upon some dry wood and gasoline.

The same could be said for Sony in Canada. At Best Buy, Titanfall is on pre-order and will set Canadians back $59.99. Link to X1 pre-order pricing:

But infamous is $69.99... Link to PS4 pre-order pricing:

In fact, all of Sony's exclusives are listing for $69.99 and all Microsoft's exclusives are all listed at $59.99. While most (not all) cross platform games are still listed at $59.99...

The funny thing is that I only paid $69.99 when the CDN dollar was 70 to 80 cents US. With the CDN dollar hovering in the 90 cent range this does not make any sense. I could understand $64.99. but $69.99 is blatantly taking advantage of their market position in Canada and same with 3rd party publishers that have their games at $69.99. I will not support any company that charges Canadians $69.99 for a game until the CDN dollar falls to below 80 cents US.

Other gamers should do the same.
