Thanks, dollar. Looks like games are $65 in Canada soon.

I was just looking into what upcoming games EB has for pre-order on their website. More than half of the Xbox One games I saw were $64.99 now. Thankfully, Titanfall is still listed at $59.99. It could also be worse, as I remember EA and WB charging $69.99 during 2011~

Remember when SNES carts were pushing $90 - $100?

Shut up.

Yeah, I do. But paying more than we were still sucks. Go spread your angst elsewhere.

The games are near $90 outside of NA, higher in other places.

Really, it could be a lot worse. I'm just glad wii u games are still about $65 over here.

I'm Canadian and I don't ever remember paying $69.99 for a game, at least not since some time in 2006. I'm hoping the prices listed on the EB Games Canada site are just placeholder prices.

I like how the GameFAQs spellcheck shows that the word "Wii" is fine, but the words "Xbox" and "Kinect" show up as typos.

Cyborg, most new retail games are $80-100 in Australia, I don't think you have anything to be upset about. "But but but Australians earn better wages blah blah blah." Well we're taxed heaps for rubbish.

The Xbox One board should be renamed to the Official "Troll Here" board.

This.

Hell, even the downloaded games are more expensive than retail, they should at least be the same.

Dead Rising download is 70, roughly 126 Canadian.
