There is an annoying tendency on this site that seems to suggest that 'UK' means the same as 'Europe'. The European prices are only in UK Pounds and not in Euros, even though many of us live in the eurzone. There's lots visitors from places like Spain, France or The Netherlands. For a site that prides itself on its international orientation, it would be convenient to have Euro prices on the game review pages as well. I can understand NL doesn't put up every European currency, but the Euro is used in over a dozen countries, probably all of which have people in them who visit NL. Would it be too much to put the Euro prices on the review pages as well?

Australian dollars would be nice too, but I can usually work out an approximate price beforehand based on the UK/American prices, plus I don't have any need to know beforehand anyway so I'm not too fussed really. :P

Easy guide for you - UK prices always convert to a certain Euro price. :) These are:

£0.90 is €1
£1.40 is €1.50
£1.80 is €2
£2.70 is €3
£3.60 is €4
£4.50 is €5
£5.40 is €6
£6.30 is €7
£7.20 is €8
£8.10 is €9
£9.00 is €10
£10.80 is €12

I absolutely agree with that. It would be very nice if someone of Nintendolife can answer on this...

I know it's probably not as convenient as having it right on the same web page in front of you, but I use a nifty little online App for all monetary conversion purposes while web shopping. I keep a link in my Bookmarks, open a second tab, key in my calculation - Done! I'm sure you could find a similar site in your own country if you were unable to access or use this one.
It's here:-

Nobody should have to do that, because the Euro is the main currency in Europe, so Nintendolife should have all the prices in Euro, too. There is simply no sense in listing the prices in Pounds instead of Euro.

Our main English source for Nintendo Download updates is Nintendo UK - and they use pound sterling. They've recently introduced Euro prices into their press releases, but for the most part they use pound sterling, which is why Nintendo Life uses it - as do the vast majority of other English-language Nintendo sites not based in North America.

Thank you for the explanation.

But when you now get the prices in Euro, too, why don't you write them down on the game pages?

For example at the "Wario Land 3"- or "Dempa Men"-page the prices are still in Pounds, although in the last news you mentioned the price of the two games in Euro as well.

And again: You (= Nintendolife) get the Euro-prices first, for example for the the escapeVektor game, but you don't update the game page with this price. A few days later you get the price in pound sterling, and shortly after that I can see this price on the game page of escapeVektor. But the Euro price is still missing...

Why do you do that?

After your post, yeah. 4 days ago I send a request to them using the Contact form, if it is possible to look in this thread, but surprise, surprise, nothing happened since then...

So, are there any new infos on this topic? Because the prices, even on new games, are still every time in £ and not in € on the game pages. (I understand if it takes time to add these infos on older games, but on new games it shouldn't really be much work just to put the price in Euro there, too...)

You realize that when you suggest a feature, it's a suggestion, not an unconditional demand that all the NLife staff immediately drop tools and fix it for you whilst you continually nag them, right? Ant said be patient. I'm sure there's a heck of a lot in the pipeline at the moment.

I didn't suggest a feature, but simple numbers. It shouldn't be really hard to write/copy the Euro-price next to the UK price when new games are coming out. I mean, we are not talking about the work of a redesign of the whole website here...

I asked him TWO months ago, what he mean by that, and he didn't gave me an answer. So I was patient and asked much later again. I don't see a problem in that...
