    Still a good percentage off what we normally pay anyway. Price we pay for having a decent quality of life here I guess. Well, normally anyway...

    you know you guys can just buy off the brazilian microsoft store (i believe) ? i do this and i live in the uk. Games are often near half the price of games in the uk and its a life saver since i realised a few months ago.

    I think they're referring to the fact there's less games on sale than other regions

    I'm seeing these sales even though I'm in the US.

    Oh wait I see, there's way more sales if you leave the USA section.

    Is it worth buying the ultimate or deluxe version of FM7? Thinking about buying it before it is de-listed.

    Chill out bro. Be nicer to each other.

    You're the very reason why a lot of publishers are starting to ditch regional pricing.

    You may save money, but you are just screwing the actual inhabitants of that country.

    No, games being region-free is an excuse for universal pricing. They've shown that if they are ACTUALLY concerned about losing money due to games being cheap in a particular region, that a region lock CAN be implemented (see: Argentina which requires an Argentinian IP for purchase/gift redemption even on Xbox). Anything else is just them gauging the rest of the world because it's easier and more profitable.
    Sure this can be circumvented with VPNs, but MS keeps a record of your log-in IPs and it'd be easy to enforce if they cared to do so (which they don't seem to, for now). It's telling that MS is far more on top of people using VPNs for Microsoft Rewards than they are people using VPNs for cheap regional prices.
    Edit: Personally, I don't bother with out of region purchases in general, but especially ones that require a VPN because I think that EVENTUALLY the hammer will come down due to publisher pressure. So I don't condone doing so.
