I feel sorry for the Aussies. We get shafted a little in the UK but no where near as much as our fellow gamers in Australia.

Our prices are pretty high in New Zealand too.

JohnnyBadfinger1228d ago

Yeah us Aussies get hit hard but the new zealanders get hit even harder than we do. Alot of that is also our fault.... Sorry kiwis

Worst part is that it isn't just games, a song on itunes costs $1.69 or $2.19.

That's why I import from the UK and US. F aussie retailers.

is it solely the retailers or does it have something to do with tax/economy?

jessupj1228d ago

I rent from GetGaming.com.au and one of the guys there said there is only one distributor in Australia and that's why the prices are a joke.

So I guess it's not so much the retailers fault, it's the single distributor that has the monopoly.

So... F the distributor.

That is exactly the reason why Region Free consoles are so important!

Our Aussie cousins don't deserve to be screwed at the Till and by Censors only maybe by the Lions and Ireland at Rugby!!!

Ritsujun1228d ago

And that's why region-free FTW.

go to ebay it a lot of cheaper than buying them here at retail?

devwan1228d ago

That might be so for the games (I haven't checked it myself) but the Xbox One is going to be $600AUD there, that's only £356 in UK money, barely more than a ps4!

ps4 is going to be the equivalent of £326, again, cheaper than in the UK/European equivalents.

Everyone should pay the same not a penny more or a penny less.
Its bad how you aussie boys get shafted like some say us the uk think we do but not as bad as you guys.if I was you audsie buy from amazon places like the f*** your one distributor and make them droo the prices.
