For those not too great in conversions that is the exact same R.R.P as current generation video games.
I hope it translates over here.

If it's a launch title I'll be buying it for whatever price I have to, afterall I'll need something to play when I get the 360. Otherwise I'll wait until I can get it 2nd hand.

Anybody that's been to the States for the 1st time will have experienced the confusion of taking an item to the till that says "$9.99" only to charged $10.89 (for example).
"Er...$9.99 isn't it?"
They add the tax on seperately depending on which state your in, so unless I'm mistaken - entirely possible on this one - Microsoft can say a retail of $49.99 and that's what'll appear on the tag, but the taxes will push it over.
An American mate was amazed at being charged exactly what was on the tag when he came over, it blew his tiny mind.
And that is what games go for at the moment. So there is hope that the games prices are not over priced.
Do the US prices include state sales taxes or is that the standard RRP?
