9 posts in this topic

Standard brand new AAA game has been 59.99 for like several years here... But just last eeek outta the blue in my local flyers all the AAA titles are going for 79.99. Did everyone get a big price hike or just vancouver/canada?

Not that im complaining, i know brazil and other countries have nasty ass pricing, just curious.

Best Buy's flyers here in Toronto are listing GTA V for PS4 and X1 at $69.99, and it's the same for Futureshop. I doubt it's going to be higher in EB / Gamestop's flyers too. Steam prices are unchanged too, they're still the same as when they changed to Canadian Dollars.

not over here. new games for consoles (8th gen) are usually £50 or £45. 7th gen are £40 or £35. PC is cheaper overall.

Well here on Vancouver Island (to everyone not from Canada, yes it is a different place than Vancouver the city), its apparently only the next gen games that are 69.99. Even the same game but on the 360 is still 59.99. I've noticed its been like that since march when I got my xbox one

It's the same reason games in Australia cost more, economical standing, value of a dollar, cost of living, median household income and minimum wage standing. Your minimum wage takes a hike up to $10.25 an hour on Tuesday almost perfectly coinciding with this price increase.

Games have always been 59.99-79.99 here. I remember WoW being jacked up to 79.99 when it was first released. 79.99 seems to be a PC game thing. Most new ps4/xbone AAA titles are going to be 69.99. It's better to just buy digital if you are on PC.

oh it's a next gen thing? Sorry I didn't realize.

As for pc games yeah I normally DO buy digitally these days. I wasn't really talking about them though since they aren't exactly localized or regional or anything. I mean they adjust based on nation sure but meh.

I'm not sure what the standard price of games are anymore. Everything I buy is on sale or discounted in some way.

The beauty of PC Gaming.

Eh the standard everywhere i see in van is 69.99, unless there like "deluxe edition" aka we took out stuff to sell it for 10 more dollars edition. I should add i haven't bought anything for ps3, 360 in a while though so i assume there a bit cheaper.
