It's about 0.6 pounds to a dollar.

Re: Activision would like to raise game prices further!
What's the exchange rate on pounds to dollars?  Isn't it about two pounds equaling one dollar, or is it more?  The dollar is pretty weak right now.

 :wtf:

Yes, much weaker than the pound, which means your ratio is backwards. It's about two dollars equaling one pound (a bit less.)

Yup, it's currently 1.66 Dollars to each Pound.

 
Re: Activision would like to raise game prices further!
So 100 pounds is about $60.  Not bad for a game/peripheral combo.

Nope, 100 pounds is 166 Dollars. If it's 1.66 dollars for a pound, the 1.66 * 100 is 166 :)

Nah, we should just invade the studio and make them code Battlezone 3... at gunpoint.

Bah to you lot and your dirt cheap games. :p

Typical new release: The Sims 3

ebgames.com = $50 USD
game.co.uk = £30 = $50 USD
ebgames.com.au = $100 AUD = $84 USD

And this has been happening here forever. :p

Re: Activision would like to raise game prices further!
I hope that people won't buy it but there are so many freakin kids with to much money out there that I guess they will get through with this.
Oh well, now I will have to wait a year more till the price drops.

I also guess that they will find themself confornted with a lot more downloads. They will use that to justify their move to the console and PC gaming will be dead from there on. Nice move...and I kinda predict that people will follow that trend. Saying "OH yes that is allright, I will buy a console now"

"Yes! That is my plan, and I see nothing wrong with it. I figure that if I stick to a stupid strategy long enough it might start to work."

And you usually have to wait several extra months for the honour of paying more. The Australian Games market is really pretty poor, and thats in a large part due to Au's fear of violent games.

Never quite understood that from a country that is famous for finding new and fun ways of making Cane Toads explode...

Yeah, you'd think a nation originally colonized by criminals would be all about blowing people's heads up. :D

Seriously though, I feel I must defend my Australian cousins regarding that, since 'criminal' in those days mostly consisted of 'The Poor' and 'People who said unpopular things' ;) Yes, there were 'real' criminals as well, but the majority of the settlers weren't really guilty of any major crimes. Except, possibly, being Poms ;)

Hey guys, do you remember this thing called the housing market bubble popping? I'm waiting for this to apply to the game industry too.
