    Uh, aren't videogames significantly more expensive in countries like Sweden though? Pretty sure your average Xbox 360 game costs about 700 kroner or $85, so you can't just do a simple conversion to arrive at the probable price in other countries.

    While Sweden is pretty expensive due to its 25% VAT it's not nearly as expensive as you say. Your spelling of "kronor" makes me believe you mean another neighboring country, namely Norway which indeed has higher prices on most things.

    With that being said 10sek ~ €1 and if we are to go by the usual $1 = €1 I'd rather think that it'd be around $150 instead :/

    I guess it all comes down to which store you compare it to. Spelbutiken for example offers lower prices on most games and also include free shipping [​IMG]
