#2 Posted by KalDurenik (3768 posts) -

It went down 100kr in sweden :p

#3 Posted by DanielDust (15402 posts) -

It wasn't even released yet and you want a promotional price? :P

Unfortunately for you, absolutely not , not at this time, you should have pre-ordered it 3 months ago when it was even 40$ in some places.

Well maybe in Sweden the price was higher than 60$, because in Europe $ =/= €, but Starcraft does sell for 60$ in most places here in Europe.

The price for Sc2 normal edition is... 425 swedish kronor...

so give or take 42.5 euro (its abit less then that i know but still).

UK Amazon is selling sc2 (normal and collectors) for £10 off RRP so I imagine it's similiar for US Amazon

Check gogamer.com once the game releases

$70 CAD, I went bug-eyed. That's more expensive than a lot of console games... I'm still lookin around for a good deal. edit: Just saw I can trade in two select games for Starcraft II at Rogers Plus... I'll choose from the multitude of console games I buy and never really play or bother to finish :D

I seriously doubt you are going to find any good prices until a while after launch.

Last time I checked, the minimum wage was almost twice that of the US. So, please, stop posting this comment in every single $60 game thread when you actually have to work LESS to purchase the game.

TC, I wouldn't doubt that you could fine Starcraft 2 for $50 after a few weeks. It'll just take a quite of bit of searching. I also thought FRY's had a ton of deals on day of release games.

Bestbuy.ca has it for $59.99 and a $5 pre-order discount. It's about $63 with HST. The shipping is free in my area code, I don't know if it's free everywhere else.
#18 Posted by coolmonkeykid (3270 posts) -
$40 with free shipping at dell.com but then again, its dell.com I'm hoping amazon or walmart or someone price matches.

Minimum wage twice that of US..... right, yeah, we live in RICH Land here.... With minimum wage you barely manage to pay the rent and buy food, let alone buy 2 or 3 $99 games x month....

There will be a price drop on the original game when they release the next campaign.

Yeah right.

Minimum wage in Australia - $14.31

Minimum wage in the US - $7.25

Where you barely pay the rent, we cannot pay it. So seriously, stop preaching how much it costs down under.

I'm not going to compare every economic aspect of each country because I don't have the knowledge/time. If you want to say $10 extra isn't a lot for someone else then you HAVE to compare everything. There's just no way anyone could understand the economic conditions of someone else posting on this forum without extensive knowledge, so I would ask you to kindly stop posting assumptions about how $10 is nothing in comparison to what you pay. Some people might not want to pay the extra $10 on principles, you just don't know.

All I am going to say is, if you can't afford it, you shouldn't be buying it. You obviously have more important things to spend your money on.

I'm just curious. Is the cost of living there much higher than U.S.? What's the average rent for a 1 bedroom 1 bath? Twice the minimum wage of US, so you guys make like $14-15 per hour? Not bad but if cost of living is higher than it's not that good either way. I'm struggling to just buy 2-3 games a month brand new as well, although I dont have the time to play that many games so it works out for me. 1 new game a month, or every now and then when I really have to have a game.

I'm not complaining or nothing, but Australia IS one of the most expensive countries in the world.

A rental property here is about $300 per week (2 bedroom, small)... but in the past 5 years everything has gone skyhigh with prices....

Why would he? I don't know what people are thinking when they write with such ignorance. Nobody is rich, Europe has a higher minimum wage, does that mean we're living without any problems and throwing money out the window? higher minimum wage = higher taxes, higher prices... If you can't pay your rent then some random guy from Germany or w/e with a similar situation wouldn't be able to either.

What I am trying to say is that here in AUS for some reason they tax games more than other countries.... I don't know why, maybe cause we are far away for imports....

Most likely because of the shipping and number of copies, a lot more copies = lower shipping cost, then it all comes down to VAT. You can only send so many copies in a place where it gets distributed in only a few certain spots, unlike huge continents that you can send let's say 100 million copies at one end and just spread them throughout the continent maybe send them to a few countries from another (Europe and Asia for example or NA and South America).

I love these threads. Seems like any forum posters from any country that shares the name DOLLAR on their currancy thinks that $1 US = $1 CAD = $1 AUS.

From my experiences, the only people that have a right to complain are the EU people because they seem to get screwed the most on game prices....or maybe thats just Steam prices, who knows.
