    Whats up with Sony? This is the sort of shit I expect from Microsoft. But this and pulling out of E3 next year as well, they seem to be getting real peculiar lately. They won this gen's console war by a mile, no need to get greedy. Gamers are just destined to get fucked from now on.

    I'm not too clear on whether Sony was forced into it though by the City of Chicago. I'm leaning more towards that and not just Sony arbitrarily raising prices

    LOL definitetly not something Sony is pushing since its a local sales tax. It's just obnoxious blue city shit. My state passed a bill other year to force Amazon and online retailers to collect sales tax or else force the burden on consumers with a notice in the mail of what they owe for out of state purchases. I really expected maybe a Cali city to be the first to try an "amusement tax". Wait until other states try this with music streaming services or netflix. Then you'll see people lose their minds.

    I know in Turkey the playstation store charged $75 for Red Dead Redemption. So I actually bought the game here in England and posted it to a couple friends over there cause they are hounding me over it. They moaned that the game in Indonesia and Russia through the store cost $45 as Sony covered for the fall in currency in both countries and kept the price the same, but they said fuck off to a few others. So the currency dipped they related the prices but then when the currency stabilised they didn't lower the price. So the actual price of the game just jumped. All games cost like that. Now I'm sending people games from here. I'm gonna send Tetris next instead of Battlefield V. Just need to find some empty Battlefield cases.
