  1. How come certain games remain so expensive for the Belgian market?


    Does anyone know why certain games remain so expensive for the Belgian market (perhaps even European market in general - I haven't checked) even after the game is relatively old?

    THIS IS DIGITAL NOT FYSICAL.

    For instance Mad Max.

    (For US market.)

    It costs $ 19.00 normal price and now on sale it's $ 5.00.

    (For Belgian market.)

    It costs € 69.99 normal price and now on sale it's € 17.50.

    The $ 5.00 would be € 4.27...so basically we pay € 13.23 too much in comparisson for a game that's over 2 years old by now.

    ON SALE!!!

    By comparisson also the sale price of € 17.50 is equal to about $ 20.50, which is even more than what the game costs normally for the US market.

    I understand there can be small differences because of taxes and such, but these differences are rediculous, unfair and perhaps discriminating.

    Mad Max is the best example.

    There are other cases, but with less obvious price gaps.

    I just want to know why some have to pay more for a digital game because they live somewhere else.

    :)

    Belgian Version of Fallout 3 language issue

    Dear sir or madam,

    I'm a Flemish Belgian, and I just bought Fallout 4 with Fallout 3 code included via backward compatibility. I installed the Fallout 3 via download but.... The entire game is in French....

    As a Flemish Belgian my language is Dutch... "not" French... I can understand that there are not enough Dutch speaking people to create games in Dutch version... I utterly understand that. So I want to have my game in English, which is my second language.
    As I have no knowledge of French whatsoever the game I bought Fallout 4 for (fallout 3 disc version was more expensive atm then Fallout for with 3 included) is of no use to me as is.

    There are more Flemish Belgians then French ones, by a margin of 3 to 1.... So not giving the option to have the lang uage in English but forcing a French version down our throats is really a disgrace. Truely.... I don't dare buy anymore backward compatible
    Xbox games out of fear they'll be of no use to me...

    Yours most sincerly,

    Stefaan De Wasch

    Prices are largely set by the publishers. So that's not something anyone here can really answer.

    I cannot change my xbox pass region.

    Hi,

    Xbox game pass is region locked , so if you are a Belgian and if you living in Belgium, you will have access to all Belgian's contents not the one from other counties.

    Regards

    Where is my game?

    Never mind folks. Figured it out.

    Lets just say mistook a package of dlc of containing the game when in actuality, it did not. How come dlc is so expensive!?

    £59.99 for watchdogs is a joke

    My Mistake PAINT, I was looking at the PS3 incarnation.

    Still the point remains. Just why are those digital games so much more expensive than their PC counterparts.
