Complain about it to the government and elect people who are willing to advocate on your behalf to decrease tax on video games and consoles.

You idiot, did you even read the article? It talks about retailers jacking up the prices of games in Australia. Basically a Tax by the retailers just for living in Australia. Even online pricing.

There's also a government inquiry into this if you read the article, says how evasions the retailers are being on giving evidence on why the prices need to be higher.

As long as stupid sheep continue to accept those ridiculous prices, I'll be forced to order online and always get it a week after release.

What's this you say?... Physical game sales are down in Australia!
What ever could be the reason?
