Ireland Game Price Watch
This isn’t really development related but I thought it was worth sharing here. Buying games in Ireland is riddled with problems. One big problem is that gamers in Ireland are often being ripped off. Because of that I decided to make an attempt at fixing that by starting a Facebook group for people to watch and share the prices of games they see in stores.
I’m not sure how much of an impact the group will have, but hopefully it will have some impact. At the very least it will hopefully save some money for the people in the group.
Apart from the problem with being ripped off Ireland also has poor distribution of games. Many games are never sold here so you have to buy them online from the UK. Related to that is that games are poorly promoted. Many gamers don’t stay up to date with new releases and don’t even realise about the games they are missing out on.
