Is it just me or have next-gen games gone up by £10-15 in the UK? Thought prices weren't going up... :(

The same thing happened at the start of last gen, I expect they will drop a tenner in the coming months... Well I bloody hope they do!

Still $109 over here :/

I've seen games going for 70 euro here in Ireland......not a happy cabbage

As with everything else, the announcements that prices "wouldn't change" were USA-centric. That said, Amazon UK seems to drop most next gen games to about £48 a couple weeks before the game releases. As Joe says, it happens every gen; early adopters get the pleasure of covering the expense of multi-gen development. Once the paradigm shift occurs, prices will almost certainly come down.

@ Rahvon Prices in the Gamestop in Cork have been sneaking up over the past year or so. Even current gen games have gone from 50 to 60 euros over the last year. Havent been in there since the xbox launched so can't comment on next gen prices

Yup, here in Portugal, as Rahvon stated for Ireland, it seems the prices are still at 70€ (94$/58£).

Comment by Rahvon on November 24, 2013 at 12:52pm
Yeah I am really not liking the trend I'm seeing. Bad enough that Gamestop really don't seem to show any desire to drop prices on games even after they have been on the market for months. Does anyone know what the prices are like on PSN or Xbox Live? DO they match retail or are they a bit cheaper?

They start out at 70 euro digital too. That said Sony have really stepped up their game in terms of digital sales. I don't own a 360 so I can't comment on Xbox live

My life as a Sim (part 3)

So many things have happened since our last talk. I don't even know where to start. Well, maybe i should start with the good news...

Me and Maaike are expecting a baby. Remco Jr. is going to have a little brother or sister. I think it will motivate him to do better a little bit. He hasn't been doing too well at school. We try to stimulate him as much as possible. Help him with his homework, teach him about music.. you know. It's not that he's failing but he's no Einstein that's for…
