Hey ya' all Canuckies ...

How much you pay for AEP anyway? Appears the local EB Games is in the business of making a 150% profit http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/784.gif

$39.99 in Compusmart, Alberta.

I don't imagine there is any huge profiteering. $30 US almost equals $40 CDN.

You are getting screwed by the 15%. We only have 7% :P

$39.99+Tax ... really?

I thought that was high ... I guess EB is normal ... anyone get it from Future Shop yet? They are usually the cheapest in town ... I was betting $34.95 from them (usually $5 cheaper than elsewhere) ...

The EB near me ordered 2 AEPs and 1 Gold Pack, and they were both gone by the afternoon, including the AEP I bought for $39.99 less $11 trade-in on my CFS3...(finally put it to good use http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Yeah ... Im away on a work assignment and saw about 7 copies of the AEP Gold Pack in a Walmart in Grande Prairie for about $44.

Seems there are tons of these but not many of just the AEP Expansion Pack floating around so far http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif

Futureshop sucks. They are evil...and not the good kind.

Having said that, for new software releases, from what I understand, there is an agreement with the distributor/manufacturer for a set price...which is why AEP is $39.99...
Same as why Call of Duty was $59.99 everywhere...
Similiar issues with some name brand electronics...
The big boys will have the same price, but may pocket better profit due to bulk purchasing. Consumers generally will pay the same...at least as long as it is still a "new" release...
