    @3:
    these are the same prices of psp games, ffxiii:type 0 will cost the equivalent of 100 dollars. In Japan games are expensive.
    As for the crap… continue to play only home console games.

    People must be retarded. You can’t just convert these amounts dollar for dollar. Of course these prices will be cheaper in the West.
