    What's with the double game-single cart packs? I noticed that these kinda releases are in Europe only. Are people in Europe not gamers or very very cheap/stingy or something? Such that it requires the marketer to pack in 2 games for the price of one before they are willing to shell out? o.O

    I'm confused. They RARELY do that for us NA people.

    No matter, I did not enjoy neither of these games, so no loss for me.

    you would become cheap in fucking europe, everything is more expensive then in the usa, for example, if you would buy a nintendo ds (the hardware), in the states you'll pay about 150USD, in europe, you pay 150€,

    150€ = 188.963 USD

    if you buy a gamecube game, in the states, about 60USD?, in europe 60€

    60 € = 75.5778

    But I don't know why they release shit like this in europe...

    wow... that explains my noobness about currency and the commodity system now adays. [​IMG]

    I guess, given such expensive prices, it's reasonable for them to receive a better bundle.

    And not just that... Countries that are not that evolved (or advanced) have higher prices with a lower standard loads of times (just like here on the Balkan - Croatia, Bosnia, Serbia...), how ridicoulous that may sound.

    You can look the DS up here: Croatian store with DS. It costs 1199 kn. 1$ is 5,79kn. Meaning that the DS costs a whooping 207$ in Croatia where the people really can't afford it...

    We have the same example in my country, Portugal.
    Not everyone can afford to buy a game for +- 60€, since the average sallary is +- 600€.

    They are really very expensive. That´s why we have many piracy here..
