The "Square Enix Tax" is the general nickname given to the game publisher's tendency to price their Nintendo DS RPGs - including ports of older, previously released titles - $5-10 above the norm.
I'm through with paying the "tax". $40 is way too much for a DS game, no matter how good. I will still support the company, but from now on, I'll buy my Squeenix DS games once they drop in price and/or go on sale.
