We sure know better how it works in our countries than you. We have the same prices like america without any tax to be paid later. The PS4 Pro costs 400€ tax included, for example.

So explain games because clearly you do not know how taxation in conversion works at all. Let me guess the that new god of war game is totally rip off why am I paying 10 euro more.

Like you are still getting ripped off by 10 or so euro but not 20 euro like you claim. 

They always used to cost 10€ more, if you wait some months the prices fall down the exact price like you would pay in the US. But Hardware was always the same price

I preordered mine on GAME and another one on Media Markt for a friend... and the final price for both is 79'99 euros. So... I don't get were you get this 100 euro from.

On Fnac was also 80 euros, by the way.



Pre Ordered mine from Argos for £69:99

WTF Nintendo? why?

 

79$ USD = 69 euro's

Why is it 31 euro (35$ usd) more expensive here?

Why should we pay 35$ more?

At least you are not from Brazil...

It's not, the 100 euros is a placeholder. I can easily find it for 74.99 euros here in Belgium https://www.dreamland.be/e/nl/dl/nintendo-console-classic-mini-super-nes-grijs-125371 , which includes tax, while the 79 USD price doesn't include it.

Value added tax which really really means you are only over paying by at most 10 to 12 euro.

$80 = 70€

100€ without tax in Germany is 84€

I mean, if that will be the price then we pay 20% more.

You can say that this is "just 14€" but for my understanding of money, 20% is a lot. 

But well, it should be only a place holder, other European countries have it for much less to pre-order. 

But I agree with you that some people on VGC need to think about taxes more and how different they are in different countries or like in USA not shown in the advertised price. 



Its still probably going to sell out really quick lol



Pocky Lover Boy! 

In the UK I've been able to pre-order for £69.99 on Amazon.



Keep in mind US prices are not the actual price. In the US all stores add extra expenses and taxes on afterwards.

Also, it depends where you buy it, most places seem to be selling it for cheaper than that.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

It's 80 EUR in Spain...
