Also they seem to be getting more sensible extras packs.
It's a big battle for marketshare in the U.S., for cars too and the consumer is the winner. Your country may also have higher customs duties or fees that increase the price as well. In the US we also have sales taxes added on to the prices noted....about 8% for me but varies by State and County.
