Uhm, this can't be right. Even if there's a massive sale going on, what convinced them to buy this now year and a half old shooter that received horrendous reception upon release to skyrocket to the top of the charts?

If there wasn't an incredible sale going on, I feel very concerned for the Australian people. Even if there is a sale, they made a mistake. I wouldn't pay for it out of a $5 bargain bin.

Amazon Australia has/had the game for $5. The game itself with all the changes is good.

I said the same thing when Knack topped the Japanese charts at the time.

Oh well Knack was because of a forced bundle. Sony tried to make it the PS4's Wii Sports. Every console came bundled with it, there wasn't a version that was just the system, and it actually hurt PS4 sales in Japan in the first few weeks of launch before they finally unbundled it to boost sales. The only time unbundling helped a console more than bundling.

Boo! -_-

The game was AU$5 both online and at many retailers, which is about US$3.50. For those of you asking 'why?', there's your reason ;)

Well here in Denmark, the game is less than 10 dollars on the playstation store. They might have something similar going on in Australia?


Darwinianevolution (on 19 April 2019)

Well that is random. Did they have a massive discount of the game over there, or is it due to the new SW trailer?

Why the sudden hype for SWBF2? Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order?
