For those too lazy to click, it says that there will be a collectors edition of PDZ with bonus disc and stuff.
Also, the standard version will be the same price as current gen titles, with the special edition being 10 dollars more - no news on uk pricing.
The fact that the standard version is the same price as current generation titles is good - as it puts aside fears of games being 10-15 quid more expensive.
You could have someone there earning 15,000 a year and someone here earning 15,000 a year. Living in their own countries, where all that matters is their own country's prices. We get some pretty good DVD sales - they don't. We pay at most, £40 for a new game right now, whereas they have to pay $50.
Plus of course as it was mentioned - they have tax added onto most things they buy that isn't shown on the original price tag. Its because of stuff like that that I'm trying to avoid having to move to Florida. Its just too damn expensive.
Oh yeah, glad I got H2: CE on GAD, as it sucked.

No, its really, really not. But direct exchange rates aren't always reliable, you're right there.
I'm pretty certain the games'll be £35-40 on the high street and £30-35 online.
If you lived in America, right now you would be paying like $50 per game. Thats really the equivelent to us paying £50. The Yanks don't get higher wages due to our exchange rate, so going out and buying stuff like games and DVDs tends to be expensive.
Once the next gen games come out, that amount will probably rise to like $60 or so. So they'll still be getting it worse.
