I wish amazon still had no tax,but alas it does now here


This too. They're slowly implementing it for each state. I still don't understand why though.

I believe it's a new law

have you ever heard of NES games in the 80s?

That's the only thing you need to say.

People were always suppose to declare online purchases when they file their state tax so the state could charge them the appropriate taxes (use tax, basically sales tax for out of state purchases). People refused to declare purchases and so the tax evasion has become so problematic that many places are now having to get amazon to collect taxes at point of sale because it's the only way to get people to pay their said taxes. If so many people weren't so quick to commit tax fraud amazon would probably have continued to operate like it always has.

Just because you're paranoid, doesn't mean they're not out to get you.

Either way,
with tax or no tax.... they have amazing discounts and free shipping

I just paid $10 for a used Ratchet & Clank game. If they can beat that new with shipping, fine. If not, your argument is flawed.

I've stated this before, but in general the last 3 generations' average new game cost has gone $40, $50, $60. The average development cost has gone $1 million, $5 million, $25 million. God of War 3 cost $45 million to make, so I can only imagine what kind of sales Ascension is hoping to achieve.

Now I'm not saying this is all totally necessary, I'd like to see a real breakdown of costs associated with each aspect of development and see where we can really cut enough cost to potentially have $50 new releases that aren't quite as pretty but still offer the same entertainment. At the same time, if you ***** about games being too expensive, you're either too young to have been gaming in the 90's, or are the cheapest person on Earth.

All of that is true, except the DLC because it doesn't exist for the game.

So you really have nothing here.
