Exactly trueVideo games cost WAY more in Australia than they do in most other areas. They have to pay something like $100 for games that would cost $60 in the States and other Western countries. It's ridiculous.
Funny how our dollar is worth just as much (and lately often worth more) as the US Dollar and we are closer to where the games are manufactured so shipping costs isn't an issue. I honestly don't get it. It's not just games, all electronics pretty much.
Wii U Black: $430
Wii U White: $350
3DS AAA Title: $70
Wii U AAA Title: $80 (Wii was $100)
iPhone 5: (16GB $800)(32GB $900)(64GB $1000)
EB Games PS4 Preorder (estimated) Price: $800 (seriously, not joking)
We didn't get any Oracle pricing in our Direct, so I wonder what that will be.
Also, there still isn't much Wii U stuff to be excited about.
