    Wow, the rip-offs for the UK...

    Jurassic world = $8. or... £16.

    ONE OF THESE IS NOT LIKE THE OTHER, MICROSOFT.

    Well, guess I won't be wasting my money on any of this stuff if they think they can rip off the UK and get away with it.

    I picked up Mad Max as I've been wanting to try that for a while but didn't want to pay the price.

    I'm saving my game pass trial for when I want to play it so I don't have to pay. wink

    Your anger should be directed at Warner Brothers, not Microsoft. They are the ones setting the abnormal difference in pricing across countries.

    You'd think they'd know simple price conversions, given Microsoft Money & such... I am not even very good at price conversions, but I'm definitely aware £16 should be closer to $8, not the other way...

    Pick up Valiant Hearts if you haven't already... one of my favorite games of all time.

    (How about a sequel?!)

    No sequel. Leave Valiant Hearts as it is.

    Highly recommend Mad Max. I paid £20 but don't regret it.

    Definitely getting Lego Hobbit. Wouldn't mind Dirt Rally but simply don't have the time to invest to master it.
    Christian Gamers - Join the bandwagon.

    Supply and demand. There are more people in the US. There are more used copies of the Lego games. The price of the used copies is lower. The digital price is reduced in every country to compete. There is no need to reduce the digital price as much in other countries.

    You get paid far more than they do in the US, so what takes them an hour to earn, you can earn in half an hour, but since your shopkeeper is also paid twice as much, they have to charge twice as much for their goods. So at the end of the day you are paying almost the same price in your country as they do in the US.

    Or you could just change the region on the store and pay for games in US dollars.

    I already think €15 is a steal for the deluxe edition of Lego Star Wars, let alone $7,50. Definitely grabbing this one
