NPD Group Australia reports that game prices in Australia are now lower than they were when recording of data began in 2000.
Additionally, MCV Pacific is reporting that Australian game prices dropped by 15% on average in 2012, the biggest drop on record since 13% in 2004.
NPD Analyst Andrew Milgate claims that “There are a few things that have contributed to the lower average prices this year,” citing the falling cost of console hardware and “strong sales of Skylanders & Skylanders Giants figures”.
