Xbox One Now $50 cheaper than the PS4 everywhere; everywhere in Canada at least. with MS dropping Kinect and the One being $399.99 it's now $50 cheaper which may make up for the hardware differences and even things out, in the great white north.

People living in Canada are more than used to paying more for their stuff than Americans. We often go through periods of economic downturn that lower the value of our dollar compared to the US dollar.

I remember paying nearly $600 (after 14% tax) for my PS2 (Gran Turismo 3 bundle about a year after it came out). I also remember paying $79.79 (after tax) for Mirror's Edge.

1. No we don't we bitch about it all the time

2. We go through periods where our dollar is more than the US and we still pay more even for the shit made in Canada.

3. That has nothing to do with the Xbox One being Cheaper in Canada than the PS4.

  1. You seem to be agreeing with me.
  2. When was the last time the Canadian dollar was of significantly more than the US dollar? The last time it was at parity, it was no more than 3 cents over 1:1.
  3. It has everything to do with it. The PS4 is $450 in Canada because of the lower value of the Canadian dollar. It was $400 when it was released.

First of all, the Canadian takeover of the planet has not been announced yet, let alone actually happened.

Second of all, the Xbox One will need to be quite a bit more than $50 cheaper than the PS4 to be worth buying over it. Anything else would be a rip-off.

It's still $399 in the U.S. and on EBGames.com. XB1 in Canada didn't get a price increase like the PS4 did, so it's been cheaper for awhile now. I'm sure Microsoft will have some decent bundles during the holidays. If you don't own a XB1 yet, I'd wait until the holidays for some great deals. Microsoft needs to drop their XBox 360 down to $200 or less. I thought they would announce that at the E3, but nope.

Insults coming from someone living in a country where basic rights and freedoms are being slowly taken away, police are being militarized and it's corrupt politicians wipe their asses with the constitution every single day. Ask yourself why Obama feels that he needs a police force that's just as well equipped as the military and why this police force needs 20 million rounds of hallow tip bullets as well as armoured military vehicles? Ask yourself those questions before knocking another country you fucking dimwit! Go USA!

Well, seen as I'm from England, I don't think I will ask myself why Obama feels that he needs a police force that's just as well equipped as the military and needs 20 million rounds of hallow tip bullets as well as armoured military vehicles.

America is slowly dying. Their people need to act now if i'm honest. But chill the **** out. It was a joke. And I know England isn't exactly the land of the free atm.

Well as a Canadian I'm just sick and tired of all the silly Canada bashing and I lost it for a minute.

Really? Because Britain bashing doesn't bother me in the slightest. But that may be just me.

So I take it you don't like South Park then?

You're just a useless troll.

Xbone's been cheaper than the PS4 in a lot of places and a lot of times over the last few months and it hasn't done shit for it.

Xbox Done.

  3. That's because Microsoft is likely forcing retailers to keep that price point to undercut the PS4.

If I am not mistaken, it is often voted the best country in the world in which to live. If you live in the U.S., spend a few months in Canada and you will see why.

I thought that was Denmark? Also its very very cold and snowy in Canada. We had 6 blizzards in Philadelphia PA this past winter...I don't even want to know how many there were in most of Canada... Blizzards and snow suck!!! it sucks to drive an hour to work in, sucks to shovel...and its cold.. why would anyone move there?

Bitching about it doesn't imply we're not use to it. It implies it's fucking annoying which it is. The country doesn't just stop buying things all together until the dollar reaches parity. However, nothing ever get priced down accordingly when the dollar is high, however prices do raise when the dollar is low. Yes that is annoying. The X1 being cheaper in Canada because MS didn't raise their price will not effect the system war in that country. If someone has to choose, $50 isn't going to matter on a purchase that will come out to half a grand after a game purchase.

Climate in Canada varies across the country just do to the shear latitudinal distance it covers. Where I live, winters are a mixed bag. Sometimes there is barely any snow, sometimes all it does is snow. You get use to it. People that live in areas with snow are also just far better at driving in it than places that barely get any. Again, you get use to it. I like snow but I agree with you, shoveling it sucks.

Canada is an amazing place, the people there are really friendly and they have Sane Copyright laws and despite having more guns per Head than the US they have a bare Fraction of the gun crime they have in America.

I Spent time there at Batus (British Army Training Unit Suffield) and i loved the place, i never once felt intimidated and i never got that 'From another Country' Vibe that i get everywhere else.
