Where do you guys live? Brand new PS3/XBOX games are always $60 around here and have been for years.
In the UK, but what you have to remember is they're basically making extra money out of us at the 40-45 mark. $60 is around 35, so over the years to stay competitive retailers have moves it to closer to actual exchange rate.

^^^PS3/360 are all at the 39.99 and below mark, they have never really be above that..........Wii-U games on the other hand all seemed to come with that 49.99 price tag.......although funnily enough i have noticed even at Game they have dropped in price about a 5 in the last few weeks.

No doubt that 50 price tag was not helping move many......which would be no surprise. lol.

Though i might be a bit spoiled with the xbox/PS3........i just orders Aliens CM with a Turtle beach xbox headset for 49.99..........i mean talk about a bargain.
I expect it'll drop over time. I remember Xbox 360 and PS3 games being around 45.99 or more when they first launched. then came down, with Wii coming out around 40 and dropping over time too. I expect the same will happen with the Wii U. But I'm with you, I refuse to pay more than 35-40.
I was looking to replace my Wii for the reason of having the Wii-U upscaling all the Wii games to a better res, i know they wont be HD but a sharper crisper Wii game would have been nice.

But i will have to wait till it drops down in price.....cant justify that 250 for the basic bundle alone......and i'm tight.
It apparently doesn't upscale in the PAL regions. It's locked to SD progressive. If I remember what I read. So it looks better than Wii on the standard AV cable but isn't scaled to HD.
I luckily got my 32gb version for 199, otherwise I wouldn't have it. And I've just picked up ZombiU for 29.99.
