Like I said, XP and Vista are still out there. I have been using them for years and I will most likely continue using them for many more years to come. You're confusing wants for needs.
I don't know about 'affordability' per se, but Home Premium should definitely be valued greater than 2 console games considering the number of hours and use you'll obtain from it in comparison.
i been using WinXP64bit for years. i do have a copy of Vista ultimate here i will probably reinstall as its cheaper for me right now.. i dont need Win7, but many people like Security so i thought win7 would be best way to go than to reinstall Vista

Console games are over priced and are a rip off.
Ditto to that

At the very least I would have thought they would have put into place the preorder discount like they did in the US.
The prices aren't too far off vistas, but yeah they are really inflated when compared to the rest of the world. I have vista ultimate now, but there is not a chance in hell I will get the win 7 equivalent.
The savings of upgrade vs retail get pretty crap towards the high end of the scale.
Home Premium Upgrade: $199
Home Premium Retail: $299
Professional Upgrade: $399
Professional Retail: $449
