In fifa 15 on PS4, 12K fifa points is priced at 99.99$ Canadian dollar. however, on Fifa 16 on xbox with early access, 12K fifa points is 112$. Keep in mind with early access you're getting 10% off of fifa points so the regular price for 12K fifa points in Fifa 16 is now 124.99$ Canadian dollar. I know that Canadian dollar has dropped in value a bit but it is not fair to increase the price just because of that! What's funny is that the studio that makes the game is literally 30min away from my place and they do this us.

    how is that not fair? Pretty sure it's still cheaper than it is in US if you convert it.

    it is now 25% more expensive. My wages or anyone else's wages hasn't been raised because of the drop in value of Canadian dollar. And you shouldn't be converting it to US dollar. It is just unfair that they did this.

    We understand that you're making the same wages as before, but the value of your money is not the same as it was last year. You shouldn't pay the same number every year if your currency changes in value.

    Canadians are actually getting a cheaper deal than other countries:

    For example, 12k FP cost $112.49 (Canadian dollars) in the EA store. The same package goes for $89.99 USD.

    Consider yourself lucky. I have to pay $112 USD for every 12k FP.

    I'm more disappointed that you got 20% off with season pass and only 10% with ea access.
  • Is the point of this that you think EA shouldnt charge Canada the same as the rest of the world just because there currency is doing bad?

    that's true when you convert it, but what I'm saying is that compared to last year I'm paying more.

    Good.

    I'm actually glad that the chances of pulling high rated players are extremely low and also the cost of FP are rising.

    I'm getting tired of playing full TOTS teams and teams filled with Ronaldo and Messi. FIFA 15 was quite a joke because of this.

    Try actually playing a game and building a team up.

    You're paying a higher quantity of total Canadian dollars, but you're not really paying "more". $99.99 Canadian dollars in 2014 is worth more than $99.99 Canadian dollars in 2015.

    If the value of the Canadian dollar decreases globally, is it fair for Canada to maintain a cheaper rate than every other country? No, of course not. Since all countries are sharing one FUT market, we should all pay for FP in an amount consistent with our currency's worth.
