    The price for 3DS games in Europe is huge.
    Don't u think?
    We pay 45 Euro for a game,thats 60 $ per game.
    That's a little too pricey...

    My heart hurts when i pay 45 Euro for a game,but thankfully i don't.
    Both of my games i got for 25 Euro whats CHEAP!!

    So what do you say about the 3DS game prices for Europe?

    In the UK, the 3DS game price is fine. It depends on where you live, some countries even pay double the price of each game.

    Yes it's 45 euro per game here as well.
    Not only that but I just went to see Brave and had to pay 10 euros (well 9.60) for it!
    And it wasn't even the 3D version of it.

    Man I remember when I went to see Harry Potter 3 I only had to pay like 4.50.
    Of course games where always this expensive actually, even 8 years ago.

    then you must be living in coocoo land, high street prices are beyond ridiculous, most games costs £35.99 or more, for that price i can buy a ps3 game for that price!

    amazon uk prices are not so bad but some games on there still cost £29.99 so you are not saving much compared to the high street prices especially when you add delivery charge to the total.

    They are way too high, eshop prices piss me off the most, e.g the NA eshop charges $4.99 for particular 3DSware, the UK eshop decides to throw the conversion rate out of the window and charge £4.50 for the same game, (the USD price would convert to £3.07). Why Nintendo? WHHHYYYY???

    I order most of my games from the UK, either from GAME or from Amazon (GAME since I often use my points and order free games with them), even that £29.99 is cheap when compared to the prices here, besides, shipping is free for most games over £25 for my country, the last 3DS game I bought here was 49.99€ and the only reason I got it was because I couldn't find it in stock online.

    Saw the prices today - 2000 Rubles or ~67 USD or 50 EUR. It's OK for me, but people want games to be cheaper.
    On the other hand, I import 3DS games from Japan and price there can be even higher.

    I don't buy from high street shops, they're way to expensive. I usually buy on Amazon UK or ShopTo.net, both have some great deals. It's usually 1st party games that are the most expensive.

    In Romania the prices are between 180-300+ RON which is equal to 60-100+ $ US, 40-65+ EUR and 33-54+ GBP which is fucking expensive for my tastes, not to mention that the average salary here is between 900-1200RON which is 300-400$, 200-266EUR, 160-215GBP a month. That's why I like to order them online.

    You maybe think that that's more than enough money, but no, it's not when you need to pay more than half from it for bills and taxes. And believe me, these aren't ordinary taxes, because the government take taxes for everything and all are freaking expensive.

    But nooooo..... why would they do that.
