To suggest that things are going to simply continue as normal may perhaps be a bit misguided.

The GBP has plummeted and who knows how far it will eventually rise. It's going to cost more to travel around Europe so it only makes sense that the cost of game distribution will rise. Obviously no-one here is an expert and to be honest both remain/leave campaigns were full of lies and empty promises but the ultimate decision to leave only makes things more difficult and uncertain for the release of games.

I'm looking forward to the pensioners whinging and moaning about their annual holiday to Benidorm being more expensive after they voted out!

I really don't know how much the prices will be affected by Brexit. The NOK has plummeted the last couple of years, but the prices for Nintendo games are the same, we even have more budget titles now then ever. I don't know if it's Bergsala or Nintendo setting the prices though, but if it is Nintendo I wouldn't expect prices to change at all at least in the next couple of years.
