Re: General Gaming Discussion

f1 2011 is a chance to be the best looking game of 2011 if the previews are telling the truth

Re: General Gaming Discussion

F1 2011. Fifa Soccer 2012. Pro Evolution Soccer 2012. They're taking over! That's all people ask me about at Gamestop. We have more pre-orders for Fifa Soccer 2012 (on all systems combined) than we do for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (on all systems). Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 caught up to Gears of War 3, while F1 2011 is on par with Battlefield 3. Crazy. No one here really gives a shit about the Rugby World Championship game, however.

PES 12, really? I've heard next to no good things about the demo

I'm glad it still sales relatively well though.

Re: General Gaming Discussion

PES 2012 is terribad. Yes, it's a massive improvement over 2010 and 2011, but still light years behind FIFA.

The game still sells despite whatever reception it may receive in relation to FIFA. FIFA still sells more, no arguments about that. The groups that tend to buy Pro Evolution Soccer more are the Brazilian and Argentine visitors. The rest of the South Americans seem to prefer FIFA, though that's still a loose generalization (a lot of the Brazilians and Argentines we receive also buy FIFA with their PES). They all seem to love F1, though. And Call of Duty.

Games over in South American cost more than either the US or Europe, though (from what they tell us). That's why many of 'em come over to the States to buy their games (they're also from the same region game-wise, so it helps).

Can anyone from Argentina or Brazil clarify some of this information for me? Tourists aren't really a good indicator. Do games really cost as much as 200 or 300$ over there? Do you prefer FIFA over PES, or the other way around? Why so much love for F1?!

Re: General Gaming Discussion

i dont live in argentina or brazil but here goes.

taxes. the tariffs in these countries are huge. games that a few months old in america are being sold legit in these countries for about 160 american. xbox live only got introduced there last year, and there has been no price drop on 360's over there since release (at 1300-1500 american dollars).

brazilians in particular love their formula one. it's one of the biggest sports there along with football. the brazilian grand prix always draws huge crowds and they have developed numerous champion grand prix drivers, most notably ayrton senna. so yeah, it's huge over there, just like football. i presume fifa would be more popular, but it would be hard to get the game anyways.

Re: General Gaming Discussion

Ah, I see. They always seem to mention taxes when they talk about the prices of games. It doesn't help that countries like Venezuela have embargoes on games shipped from America (especially violent games or games that paint Venezuela or any other South American-looking country in a negative light).

I suppose that's why a lot of 'em buy their games over (much cheaper) here. However, I do caution 'em when they buy Used. They obviously can't come back and return the game. Some of 'em don't seem to care, though, even when the discs look like shit.

Re: General Gaming Discussion

That sounds like you could make a ridiculous mark-up buying and selling games there, even if you sold at a fraction of their prices.
