    They are about the same, Euro has a little more value than USD.
    The only thing that happened is assholery from the gaming industry.

    Promised myself I wouldn't be buying new releases when they eventually go over $60.
    Looks like it's time for the back-log to shine while I wait a couple years for ps5.

    Nintendo will not let us down and will beat the competition by releasing a $70 game before PS5's release date.

    GO NINTENDO!!!

    ugh, so now Sony is dabbling into the $70 goddamn normal price.

    *stops bitching about consoles and figures out how to afford RTX 3070*....

    Don't mean to burst your bubble but Sony commented on that and said it was "hUmAn ErRoR" and made that trailer private.

    Whether it was an actual mistake, or ploy to get people to buy the game twice after release, remains to be seen.

    They really think that people will pay 70€ for a Sackboy game at launch? Or maybe I’ll just wait 5 months until it costs 30€ or just a year and it will be on sale for 5€ In PS Store or just a PS Plus Game as always

    For everyone wondering why euro is more expensive it’s because in US you have to pay the taxes extra and in EU the prices already include all taxes

    The release date actually makes no sense

    Europeans have to wait a week longer but countries like Korea can play a week earlier but wtf nobody in Korea buys PlayStation; what is this crap

    Are they seeking for revenge about something that happened in Europe?

    How are American dollars and Euros equal? Wouldn't one be worth less, compared to the other?
    At least with Pounds, they lowered the price by 40.

    Assholery as in "We can do it so we do it, profit, profit, and let's give the practiced discourse of costs are high and devs are underpaid, even though we know not one dime of this increase will go to devs, but the people fall for that speech all the time; people will still buy it anyway, lol".

    1 euro = 1.18 usd,
    euro > usd, but just about the same, negligible.

    Deal with it, that's life.
    It's not as if it were the first time Europe was screwed regarding release dates, lol!
