In many areas in Europe, the prices on things are very high. Finland and GB are two examples. After conversion, we over on the European side of the pond are paying ridiculous amounts of money for games, etc. For example, Super Mario Galaxy is 55 euros at this one Finnish site I checked. That's around $88!! At amazon.co.uk it's 43 pounds, which is around $80. At amazon.com right now, you can get SMG for $50.
The euro doesn't go a long way here in Finland and many people here are wondering what is going on. The people I have talked to say prices on everything from entertainment to food, skyrocketed since the change from the Finnish mark to the euro.
As an American, I can easily admit that I took prices (and a lot of other things) for granted back in the States. I do miss it, sometimes.
Do we have to register the games and products we buy in order to get these Star points? Is it any game or just Nintendo-specific games? This is the first time I've even heard of this.
