PlayStation 4 is just three days away from launching in Europe along with Australia and other countries. To get things prepared, Sony has officially launched the PlayStation 4 PSN Store for Australian gamers and to their surprise the prices for digital gamers are shooting over the moon.
Both Europe gamers and Australian gamers now share the same fate, the fate of expensive digital games on PSN store compared to their counterpart released in North America. The games are starting from A$89.95 Australian dollars which equals to around $82.70 American dollars. The same game(s) can be had for only$59.99 in North America.
Expensive ain’t it? Such prices for digital games will limit gamers to stay with the physical copies of the game which, more or less, will be cheaper than the digital games plus you’ll get a shiny case for your collection. We do hope that later on Sony does consider lowering prices on the PSN store. The UK PSN Store offers the following games with their prices:
- Angry Birds Star Wars: £32.99
