Recently it was announced that MS witt try to boost sales on XBL Store through price cuts. On feb. 27th price cut for ZOO Tycoon was announced - to 39.99 USD.
Let's check the prices for different regions, shall we? If the price is reduced, normally it should be reduced for every country the very second the official announcement is out. This is how it works with Android Play Store and
US: 39.99 USD = 28.93 €
UK: £49.99 = 60.6 €
EU: 69,99 € = 96,75 USD
Price on Amazon: £42.00
MS is so many years in business, it blows my mind how it's is unable to understand the concept of "contries other than US". You want to boost the sales? Start handling all countries equally for starts.
I often hear the argument that the publishers are responsible for prices of games. As a customer, I couldn't care less about who is responsible for the prices. Microsoft is running the whole thing, it's Microsofts rules and Microsoft should take care of this.
