Jeff is at Wendy's. He says the bombcast should be up soon.
He ordered a diet coke, a cheese burger and a 4 piece nugget. Just a heads up.
He wanted a diet Dr. Pepper but they didn't have it. What bullshit.
am planning to go all digital, with perks like PSN not charging sales tax.
You are still going to lose 10% on the foreign exchange, that is why the price are going up at retail; and with steam opening up more regional stores including Canada, we'll be paying tax there too, things are looking grim, it was good while it lasted though.
PSN charges Canadian in Canada. I spend $20 I get charged $20. No exchange and no tax being a perk.
I'm pretty much all digital at this point, buying my 3DS games on the e-shop and PC games on steam. Still, this really sucks for those of us who don't have the bandwidth/space for an all digital library. Any word on if Target and Wal-Mart are raising prices too?
Best Buy will probably follow next, as they and FutureShop are one in the same, and I expect Wal-Mart to increase with them. Target is an unknown for me as I have never shopped at one yet and they are fairly new to the Canadian market.
I was hoping this would be an odd occurrence here and there but it appears this will soon be widespread. EB Games is hiking the prices of games like Destiny, Watch Dogs, Dying Light and others to $69.99 while other games coming out soon, like Tomb Raider Definitive Edition and Thief, are being raised to $64.99.
Futureshop is jumping on the bandwagon as well raising Nintendo Wii U games above their previous standard to $54.99, Donkey Kong being the prime example. It's only a matter of time before all other retailers follow.
So my fellow Canadians what will you do during this price hike crisis? I have already cancelled any pre-orders I have at these retailers and am planning to go all digital, with perks like PSN not charging sales tax.
