    Nsider refugee here...

    Has anyone checked the prices for SSBB and Galaxy on the Futureshop website? I'm not saying these are the final prices, but they have them listed at $69.99?! While the USD listing for the games on ebgames.com is $49.99 (28.5% price difference)

    With the Canadian dollar basically on par with American dollar, is this the point where we [Canadians] should start ordering all our games from an American retail/online store?

    Oh, I know there's shipping costs associated with buying items from different countries; but shipping costs bringing this to parody with the CAD price I've quoted - I don't know. My gut feeling is that on something like this, it wouldn't cost much to ship.

    As far as I know, these are the only two Wii games I've seen - ever - that have been listed at $69.99.

    Those will not be the prices. They will likely be 59.99, which is still too much, considering the exchange rate.

    I, too, am an NSider Refugee. It's nice to be able to post pictures and have a signature. Finally.
    Anyways, would ordering games from the US be counted as off-region? Or does it only go by US/EU/JP? Would you have to mod your Wii?
