They've run out of that money building the weapons...

It actually costs quite a bit of money to maintain our aging arsenel of nuclear weapons. If we get rid of them we just melt them down into nuclear fuel or bury it deep underground.

Of course everything's taxed. In England we pay 17.5%, as mentioned earlier. This is about an aditional tax on top of a game which already has the VAT on top of the standard price.

I personaly don't give a damn, a few extra £££/$$$, who cares? As long as the money isn't wasted. I won't buy a game unless I know it's good anyway, and if it's good, i'll certainly get my worth from it.

Stop being cheap skates.
