Japan GPU prices ...

Why are PC Parts prices are sky-rocketing / over-priced in Japan?

 

RTX 3080 is like 699$ (74,200 yen) but it is 109,800 yen (1035$) in Japan.
Why the 300$ difference? Why ??? (T_T)

As far as I know, RTX 3080 and 3090 will officially be released on the 17th and thus the prices for the cards are still not the final ones -- they may be wildly off the actual price.

Other brands will come out soon enough and that might make the price fall a bit but why 50% overprice, though? That doesn't stop with GPUs. Almost all the pc parts are 50% overpriced compare to other countries.

I can just get from US Amazon with the same or lower cost but the waiting time got extended by a huge length.

Japan isn't much into PC gaming, so with less stock (or smaller orders from retailers) pricing can be more volatile. Plus Japan has a 10% VAT, so $700 in the US would directly correspond to $770 in Japan.

I'm not Japanese, so I don't know. Could be e.g. their equivalent of VAT, like e.g. here in Finland we've got a VAT of 24% and thus pretty much everything is a lot more expensive than in e.g. Germany. Also, over here, companies are greedy and just directly convert $1 USD to 1€, even though $1 is nowhere near the value of 1€.

Well, with VAT it actually balances out the currency conversion.

How so? A $100 product is 100€ + 24% VAT, so 124€ (~ $146) over here. I don't see how that balances anything.

In the case of Japan, it's 50%+ for the hardwares.

We still have one week till official release, until then they can do whatever they want in stores, like this in Switzerland.

I guess they still want to get rid of all those 20xx in higher prices while they can, and as there are no pre-orders - who cares what price tag they put for now.

No, it's 124€. Like I said, the vendors here convert the $100 to 100€, and then the VAT is calculated from that.
