  • €70,- is unacceptable for a pc game

    I really want to try this game but it's only available on the windows store for €70. Can't find it on any other website.

    This is really a currency exchange issue that remedy has absolutely no control over. My advice would be to picket your government to improve their money's exchange rate

      Well AAA games on steam are at the highest €50,-. So it has definitely nothing to do with the exchange rate.

          50 Euros = 56.2675 U.S. dollars

            Ok so it's only a few dollars extra. I know some countries require import taxes on digital goods. Could this be an import tax issue then?

              The price in your region is usually set by the publisher, in this case Microsoft. The development studio has absolute no control over it. What you can do is set your region to US and get it from US store for $ 60 USD ( last time I checked the price on US Store which could have gone down now not sure).

                The new Doom is 60€ on Steam, 70€ on retail. High prices on big AAA games aren't uncommon.
                Also, Quantum Break is available for 55€ on G2A right now, even less if you don't want to use G2A Shield. https://www.g2a.com/quantum-break-wi...ey-global.html

                  70€ might seem high, but developing games is more and more expensive and less and less people seemingly buy them. We have to make money somehow so we can make the next game.

                    Seriously? The next game? How about you fix your current game????? "Multi-GPU out of the scope of Remedy"???? Is it out of the scope of 70 euros?

                    "Seemingly"!??? Either you know what you're talking a bout or not.

                    Other developper/publisher sell thier game for less and don't seem to go bankrupt. Example? Rise of the Tomb raider wich is 50 euros on both steam and the windows store.

                    Plus the physical copies on xbox are cheaper now: https://www.amazon.fr/Microsoft-Quan...break+xbox+one
