    Can some one please tell me how much Need for Speed Carbon, Madden 07, etc. will cost in Australian Dollars?

    I know this is probably a really common question but when ever I search it excludes every word from the search except Wii and Need. :wtf:

    Thanks

    all EA games will be $99.95 RRP, so that includes madden and NFS. all nintendo games are the same. the cruddy ones are between 49-79 and a few such as Rayman will b $110 but no more.
    not as cheap as i wouldve liked but better than 360s $120 prices!

    $99.95! Aren't the games in America $50? I thought the games in Australia would be something like $75 going on the exchange rate.

    I guess that would be one of the only disadvantages of living in Australia.

    yeah there arent many bad things about this beautiful country so i can live with paying an extra $20 for games.
    but its still a bit rich. (in case u didnt notice nintendo dont really know we exist down here)

    WiiPlay

    What is this WiiPlay?

    I see that the $80 price tag includes the Wii-mote. That's pretty good considering a Wii-Mote costs $70. What I'm wondering is what Wii-Play actually is. Is it like little arcade games to make the most out of Wii's features or is it just a fancy way to package a Wii-Mote.

    Is WiiPlay going to be a launch title or is it going to come out like 3-6 months later. In Australia that is.

    WiiPlay has Air Hockey, Duck Hunt style game, and 'exciting' stuff like that, so I shall get it for the remote i guess. And Im pretty sure its a release game!

    Dang, games are epensive. THough I already read Sam_Harris's work on a website *shifty eyes* it stills scares me to read it. I guess I'll be waiting for EB to have their many 10-50% off sales...

    At my local EB today, I saw that they had the Wii section set uo with display boxes and prices. When I saw the Nunchuk, it was priced at $30, and I instantly thought "Hey, only $30 for a controller!"... Then I realised I was an idiot. The Wiimote is $70, and the Nunchuk is $30. The classic controllers are also $30. This is pretty much what I expected, but that's still pretty outrageous.

    For those interested though, this means you can now pre-order controllers from the Brisbane city EB. Not sure about the others.

    On a final note, I saw DBZ Budokai Tenkaichi 2 there as a display box, which leads me to believe that it is a release title. I shall be pre-ordering this ASAP, and will get this on launch, as it looks like a super-sweet game.

    Im pretty sure its the same. And I am SURE wii play will be there, due to it being one of nintendos release games.
