New app store prices in the uk wtf!

Omg i knew the prices of apps were going up, but my god the price difference on most games now is CRAZY!!! For e.g world ends with you normally 13.99...now it is 19.99!!
I was only ourchasing stuff im really into as of my huge back catalougue but this makes me want to wait for games to go free or have a sever price drop!!
Dont get me wrong il still pay for a good game but my god this is a huge increase...such a shame

You island folks had it good till now, looks like you're catching up to the continent
19.99 pound = 23 . Twewy goes for 20 here in NL. 3 difference cause of taxes? Or cause folks like these 9.99 prices, and noone wants to put a 17,15 tag on things?

Really is, its just the jump in price that so shocking but apparently same point pricing was happening in many other places uk apparently dodged it till recently
