    I bought a whole bunch of them back a few months ago for the 360 when they were on sale. If i had an American account i would definitely buy the ones for the Xbox One, but i have UK account so it's nowhere near as cheap.

    Mortal Kombat X for 15 or XL for 32? I'm not much into fightings, but I like MK. Thanks.

    Pretty sure the BF4 free DLC has achievements.

    Middle Earth Shadow of Mordor XB1 pricing is stupid. US get it cheaper than UK

    US$10.00 / £17.50 / €20.00 / AU$27.48

    That should be about £7.50 for us going the exchange rate

    Arkham Knight seems decently-priced.

    So wait, is the season pass for Forza Horizon the same cars as the VIP Membership/Cars Packs or are those two different things? In other words - is it $5 or $7.50 to get everything?

    Has VAT gone up??? Cause a conversion and 20% uk tax gets me a different total. Oh wait it's screw England we're a shower of bastards drinking tea in our suits, bowler hats outside in the rain

    You forgot about transport costs, moving all those bits and bytes across the Atlantic is pretty expensive you know roll
    Ex-Game Info Monkey. Hit enough buttons I'll get it right eventually.

    Two different things, Season pass gives the rally expansion and the monthly car packs, the VIP pass gives a few extra cars and a 1.5 xp bonus in multiplayer.
    You still need to buy those cars with in game credits. VIP pass is not really needed, but season pass is almost a requirement to 100% the game due to the 1000 car club 'free' DLC

    Without comparing it to Overwatch, what's everyone's opinion of Battleborn? Is the multiplayer fairly populated?

    Also the fact that, from my understanding, the us price does not include tax and the uk price does

    Yeah, the dollar-to-pound conversion on some of those WB deals is just awful.

    And what's annoying is that they keep doing it - this is about the 4th or 5th time where I would have picked up LEGO Batman 3 if they had just priced it fairly. But they continue to ask us unwashed plebs in the UK to spend over double what the Americans pay.

    Please don't give them the satisfaction.

    It's a good game. The multiplayer is not populated, but it's got enough players to find matches.

    Bit on the the kombat pack 2. I haven't seen it on sale before and wanted to get back into MK. And a couple Lego games.

    Very solid game. I wait about the same time to get into a match as I do with Overwtch. That's the only comparison I'll ever make.

    Batman AK season pass is still bloody expensive for us Brits, don't think I'll be getting it till it finally goes down to around current US prices these days.

    Warner Brothers also pays high taxes on money that leaves the EU, and enters the USA (so anything they sell, if they want to return that money back to the USA, it gets taxed multiple times again by a couple different governments). Time Warner (parent company of Warner Brothers) does have some overseas divisions, but ultimately most of their assets and accounting is done within the USA, so consumers are also paying the extra taxes on repatriating the money back to the USA since they have a need to use it within the USA's jurisdiction.
