My shoulder is getting better slowly, and I’m learning to manage the problem. I’m sure it would get better much quicker if I could take a couple of weeks off, but that’s life. Anyway, one of the things I am trying to do is do more stretchy-type exercises: yoga, Pilates, that sort of thing. I remembered Neil Gaiman recommending a Wii game by New U that did those things, so I thought I would investigate. I remembered it being about £25 in the UK, and I figured it would be cheaper now as it came out well over a year ago. Boy was I surprised.
OK, so maybe that’s the usual “covert $ to £ and add a bit” thing that we often have to put up with over here. But now here’s Amazon UK.
Yep, £99.98. Wow.
I suspect what’s going on here is that the item Amazon UK is linking to is not the same as the basic game. It may be bundled with something. But it did rather surprise me, and I did have a moment of “is that what a Neil recommendation does to the price of a video game?” thoughts.
