Price at EB games is US$ 29.99 in canada EB games and Compu centre are selling it between 57.99 and 64.99. The xhange rate is about 35% but even at 50% the game should be retailing for 44.99. What gives?

Looks like just your local store is running a scam. I got it for 45.99 CAD tax included.

Does Canada have import tariffs on entertainment products?

Edit: Jetbuff has a better explanation http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I paid mine 39.99$ can. I think it's even cheaper than 29.99$ us. I bought it at an EB Store. I checked the price at other stores and the price is the same. You should get your facts straight before posting.

I'm going out on Sunday to grab it if I can but you shouldn't have paid that price for it. I'm expecting somewhere between $39.99 to $49.99 for AEP.

There are no import tarrifs on entertainment products as far as I know. Most of the time we have a $5-$10 increase on prices compaired to US prices.

Dragonheart, that is the Gold edition you saw. That is the price I paid for the Gold edition which includes both Forgotten Battles (two CD's) and AEP (one CD).

Best investment I have made this year too http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

hi
arklight have free health care is not have about having higher prices, its just a scam that people can get away with. For example in the UK we have "free health care" but aces goes here at 19.99 if you play online you get it for 3 cheaper.
