Australia might soon be seeing a price drop for games

IGN - “While companies should remain free to set their own prices, the committee took the view that there are a number of ways in which Australia can act to increase competition in IT markets, which should reduce prices over time.” (Culture, Industry)

Would be a huge relief if it happens sooner.

We are paying nearly double.. triple even(!!) on a few occasions as compared to the U.S. and dare I say a couple of European regions.

Main reason for the high prices we pay is because of the high rental fees charged manipulative real estate companies.

I'd love to be able to go into a physical local shop and buy my games. Unfortunately, I have to buy my games from the UK if I want to get an actual reasonable deal.
