    Ontario, the guv'ts done a halfway decent job compared to other places so we're back open but like most other places now we're seeing a second wave. I sell hot tubs for a living which isn't an import...

    I don't think what you're seeing with Grand Turismo is unique to that franchise. Grand Theft Auto, Elder Scrolls, kind-sorta Final Fantasy (FF15 was in development since PS3 era?) have all basically ...

  • Brendan posted a message in the forum topic How much are you willing to pay for next-gen consoles?. on the General Discussion board

    Being in Canada, I don't doubt that if they're $600 US, I'll be paying $800 for one. Add in a single controller and with 13% HST (Ontario) it'll be a $1,000 purchase for sure. I'm not looking forward...
