$40 is expensive? Look at console games. $60 brand new.


Console games are $60 brand new?
That's a 3DS game in Australia, and some in Japan as well.


Who the **** wants to pay more? Would you rather pay $30 for a video game or $60? /



No idea where that comment came from or what its responding to.

Some people think video games prices are fine in the U.S just because it's more expensive in other countries. Paying $40 or more for a handheld game is ridiculous in any place. In the previous generation (DS/PSP) it was easier to pirate games and it forced publishers to lower prices. Not that I advocate piracy, but I do think the msrp prices needs to be lower, at least to $30.

Take the minimum wage in the US and to Australia, and the cost of games evens out.
$40 for a handheld game isn't ridiculous imo. DS games were, and still are, $40-50 in Aus.

There's more to price points than what you want to pay.

Umm, get a job, or get a better job, or do it the old-fashioned way: piggy bank!

Chances are you guys are gonna break it before it became full though, the way you say things.


Or.... He could also have the government pay for his games like Sandra Fluke did for her Birth Control....

Actually the RRP for a new Aus 3DS game is usually $70.

Try VGfive.com

Brand new trading site and I've gotten lots of DS games there and possibly a few 3ds games coming to me in the future. It's a lot better than old trading sites like Goozex and hella...I mean hellllla better than craptacular retain stores like Gamestop which give you pennies for your games. VGfive already has about 2400 trades since December 2012 and climbing everyday. Everything is based on a point system through trading games... so if you are interested in trading in old games for new releases or other games that you may be looking forward to playing be sure to check out VGfive.com

I always see lots of gamefaq users always short on money and unable to get the games they are looking for so I hope this new and awesome trading site helps some of you guys out.

The 3DS was a gift when it was on sale for $140, and I bought the PS3 years ago--back before I had so many bills. Taxes have gone up, food and gas prices have gone up, so my game budget has gone down.
