    Apparently yes. This has been discussed before here, so looks like the prices are really increasing. At first i doubted this was true, but now, it seems real.

    Then import it. It's probably a lot cheaper and to be fair, your games aren't so much cheaper than what I pay. It's just the way when the economy is weaker.

    Dont buy at that price and retailers will learn. This is more them testing the waters than anything solid or permanent. If people buy at this price expect ps4/xbone games to go up too

    It's not, original price was $79.99 and they raised it, they don't raise placeholders.

    $1AUD is roughly the same as $1CAD. Here Switch games are sold at a RPP of $90AUD, so you're only going to have to be paying slightly more than us here. It's unfortunate, but not outrageous. In New Zealand, where their dollar is worth roughly as much (a tiny bit less) as the Canadian or Australian, they pay $110NZD for BotW, for example.

    My Canadian neighbors have two options:
    A) come to America and get your games for cheap but have Trump as your president
    OR
    B) stay in Canada and become broke buying switch games.
    Your choice!

    Canadians can always cross the border, buy their games here with their funny-money, and then go home.

    I've heard of Canadians doing that with Costco before. Go buy your milk for cheap in the U.S. at Costco for around a dollar or two instead of paying ten dollars back home.
