$70 for a new game at retail in Canada has been the norm for a really long time, unfortunately.
No it hasn't? The PS3 and 360 generation started off at $70, but then it quickly changed back to $60. It's only been a few months since this generation started that they bumped the price of games back up. Was around the time the console itself has gotten more expensive. At least that's how it has been in Ontario.
same thing here in quebec. i haven't purchased any new games recently because of the price hike
