    Canadian gamers getting screwed !!!!

    I'm a little tired of getting screwed mainly by retailers, console makers and games makers.

    We canadian are already paying more then american for our console and periphericals. Most retailers are selling product like if the exchange rate was 1$can =0,75 $us. This is'nt true for month now we are between 0,90 and 0,95 for 1/2 the year an today we reach 0,98!!!!!

    So common retailers and console builder stop screwing us and do something about it. I can understand that basic price point can be different in different market. But this is ridiculous.

    It cost less to all those company to import those products because of the canadian dollars rate.Do something. Oh yeah, you are doing something you are making more profit!!!!!!

    I just start shopping over internet for games because it's now cheaper if you avoid border fees.

    So other canadian you can express your anger here.

    BTW i know about the australian situation so i know you get more screwed then us.

    I guess I should be mad, but for me money isn't really an issue, plus I am careful as to which games I buy. For my fellow Canadians though you might be more angry than I am.

    You should be mad, I agree that it's BS, if the exchange rate you posted is actually correct, then the prices should be much closer. I feel sorry for everybody who gets ripped off by exchange rates.

    i couldn't care less, i work hard for my money, but i don't have to pay bills or anything so it's cool

    i don't consider canadians getting screwed, i just think that the u.s. has a luxury that we don't, and we just have to pay the average price....


    the mario that's roomed with mush
    my wii is not connected to the internet, so i can't play brawl online for a bit....please do not spam inbox with friend code requests

    That's weak...
    I have to pay 25% more than US
    not only that, but there is less to choose from up here, i've seen next to no third party peripherals available in stores for wii so it leaves very few options when buyin shizet

    Yeah, Yeah. The DaWg is here.
