    This is how crazy the prices of games are in South Africa

    New video games have grown very expensive in South Africa.

    Games are way to much.

    Doom R700 ..... like how did the games go from being R500 to now R800-R900 upwards.
    I would love to play overwatch but then playing that price for a game i might play once a week is a bit overkill.
    last game i got was GTA V and SC2 LOTV and i played it for maybe a month and now its just sitting on the PC collecting Updates.

    I get that Prices have gone up and piracy is on a all time high, the developers also need to make it worth it in the end but dam. This just fuels the Piracy even more ><

    this is just depressing to think about now

    This makes me so very very sad!
    Seems like yesterday when console Games were R500 and people freaked out, and PC games were R300 max.

    Yeah quite a few EA console games were under R500 on pre-order a few years back. Now it's double the price...

    At least now my backlog is getting the attention it deserves.

    Problem is our Rand depreciates at 10%-20% average per year. Salaries only increase by 5%-6% p/y. South Africa is becoming a poorer country every year and our money buys less and less. Unless we fix the system.
