Rip-off prices in the EU-store!

[ Edited ]
28 replies 664 views Edited Aug 16, 2012

I was expecting a 1:1 conversion but asking for MORE than the US store? Are you kidding me!

 

US-store:

Leather masks bundle: 0.99$

Clown masks bundle: 0.49$

 

EU-store:

Leather masks bundle: 1.99€...should be 0.99€!

Clown masks bundle: 1.99€...should be 0.49€!

 

Wow, just wow. I'm saving so much with these "bundles". ND, please tell me there was just a miscommunication with SCEE and the prices will be adjusted to the US-store prices, meaning the typical 1:1 conversion!

 

Edit: Checked EU-store...the pricing got adjusted to the US-store! Thanks Eric-ND!

I was planning on spending 5€ and ended up spending 15€...I agree it's total rip-off.

On the store the items are 0.40p

We also had to pay two bucks more for the DD map pack. Totally ridiculous.

 

No one should buy the DLC at this price. That's the only way. But knowing all these mindless kids these days who have never worked or earned a single cent themselves, the DLC will be purchased by many players anway.

The whole lot of DLC for UC3 has been a rip-off.

We got map packs that we couldn't play because of game rotation settings, we got short-changed on the Fortune Hunter Pack, the new DLC is overpriced and all along currency conversion rates have been ignored so that everything is more expensive in the EU.

This game used to be fun and balanced.

Now it favours those with the biggest wallets or least amount of common sense. *sigh*
