Fortnite pricing: no CDN surcharge for CDN Xbox Gamers


By Blackwalt - Posted on 15 July 2017

Xbox Store Canadian prices are the same as U.S. Prices for Fortnite

$39.99, $59.99, $89.99, $149.99$39.99, $59.99, $89.99, $149.99

I had trouble with the headline for this article trying to easily explain what is going on with Canadian Fortnite pricing. I hope it is fairly clear.

In a discussion online last night I discovered that Canadian Xbox gamers are getting an unexpected discount on Fortnite.

On the Official Fortnite Site the four available editions are priced at $39.99, $59.99, $89.99, and $149.99. All prices in U.S. Dollars.

On the Canadian Microsoft Store and in the Xbox Store the Fortnite Versions are priced at $39.99, $59.99, $89.99, and $149.99. All prices in Canadian Dollars. With the Canadian Dollar presently worth $0.79 American that is a significant discount for Canadian Xbox Gamers.

This is not the same for Canadian PC/Mac and Playstation Gamers.

$53.99, $79.99, $119.99, $199.99$53.99, $79.99, $119.99, $199.99

This is a significant pricing difference. For Canadian PS4 gamers you are paying at least $14.00 more, at most $50 more. For the version I picked up Canadian PS4 and PC/Mac gamers will be paying $40 more.

I can't get a screenshot of the American PC/Mac pricing. The only way to by PC/Mac versions is through the Fortnite site which, even worse, leaves you at the mercy of your Credit Card's exchange rate.

No idea if Microsoft and Epic will be fixing this discrepancy but if you were thinking of grabbing Fortnite it would be prudent to pick it up now before Microsoft decides to apply the Canadian exchange rate.

All I have left to say about this pricing policy?

Look Stormblade, I arranged a 35% discount for you! What I won't do for you guys. How can he keep saying no?

Yeah, okay, because he is Stormblade and the Fortnite material I have been sharing does not appeal.

Darn you and your Vulcan logic!

PS- And Microsoft? Don't be in any rush to fix this.

COXXORZ RANDOM XBONE DEAL OF THE DAY #2

If you are interested in the newly released Middle-Earth: Shadow of War but don't want to jump in at $79.99 You can see where it all started with Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor (Standard Disc Version) for $11.99 at the Microsoft Store.
Now you too can follow the yellow brick road to platform 9¾ while trying to roll a critical hit.

RANDOM QUOTE OF THE WEEK

Are you going to need a tinfoil hat? We can always borrow a design from Stormblade.
