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.
