Regional pricing issues. Is there a work around?

#1 Posted by Huginrin (14 posts) -

So, i would like to play some simcity, longtime fan of the series and genre.

I dislike origin as it is impossible to brows the store since everything is translated to your language, they even make words up just to not have any English words.

Now i dislike them even more.

Anyway, here are the pricings

US store price: $60 = 383 Swedish crowns

Swedish store price: 600:- = 93.75 us dollars

WHAT!?

is there a simple way to circumvent this or will i have to boycott origin?

This isn't anything new? Things have been cheaper in the US for ages. You can buy it from Green Man Gaming or Amazon or from your local retailer etc.

Yes, check Greenmangaming.com and usually they have a more reasonable price.

Thank you, i know that the pricing issue is a thing but since i have only bought games online where that does not happen and only finding origin that sold a digital download version of simcity i got frustrated.

Thanks again.
