Also, with all the calculation that we did, we already factored in their Profit, as we took the US SRP as a starting point... so we are actually adding to their normal profit as we are calculating taxes over the already profitable price.
was the US bundle launched at a loss already which became a very huge loss with all the RMA that followed ?
how come all the other big beavy products (from bikes to huge HDTVs) dont have that kind of price difference from shipping ?
again i have to point out the steel battalion example, which is the closest example (we have to admit it was also priced over the console it ran on though).

the 5% i told you about was written on the French part of the site.
does that mean that it is actually CHEAPER to ship the boxes here that in the US ? that would be something...
