The guy covered it well. That is where I spent most of my time when buying games. Prices of consoles are insane but after PS3 and PS4 you couldn’t really afford consoles. I ended up buying consoles when I moved to Dubai because if you really wanted to game in Pakistan you had a PC and you download games from shady websites.

Actually really interesting to see. We are lucky to live in countries that don't suffer from such high prices compared to average median incomes.

I think its nuts that it can make more sense to take a "shopping holiday" to Dubai to buy a bunch of stuff and it turns out to be less money or roughly the same overall cost as just staying in Pakistan or India and buying there.

In my case i buy games at sale.My period with getting games from shaddy websites is gone.A big part of this is the importance of patches.I prefer to wait 6 months or more and get a big sale and the game is already patched.No risk of viruses and no more patch cracks.Also if i love the game i want to pay something to the devs.

Shady website games also get patched and sometimes more times than actual games.

I'm super curious about that Last of Us for PC! I wish he had bought it to see what it was... I think I heard of an emulated version of it, but not sure if that's what would be on there or if it would just be a virus or some other game entirely.

You can't get more patches for a game unless are done by the modding community.In this case the game is out of support anyway.Is this what you are reffering to ?

Yeah i can compare that as i come from a third world country and now live in the US. I used to pirate things years ago as it was crazy expensive. Looking now at the price of the PS5 Disc version is $800, games aren't that much more expensive but $800 is a lot for the hardware even in dollars, nevermind trying to afford that in that currency. Yes games are the same price but for me now spending $60 on a game is no big deal and i would do it if i want to play a game, spending that there you think twice because it comes down to the price to what you are earning

Funny seeing people in other countries openly smoking inside buildings. I watched a video last night about Indonesia, where it's common for kids to start smoking at <5 years old. They actually think it cures all ailments.


KAC, do you have a hat like that guy? I need one..........
