Sony Responds To DC Universe Cost Complaints

Kotaku Australia: DC Universe has had a troubled launch in Australia – mainly due to the costs of local subscriptions. Instead of charging users a flat US fee, and letting the exchange rate take care of the rest, DC Universe has a flat Australian dollar figure – and we’re paying more than the rest of the world. Thankfully Sony has responded to the DC Universe community in the form of a statement released today.

I'm not surprised that AU is screwed on all fronts when it comes to gaming.

Their politicians, their rating system holding back things, etc. It really sucks that they have to have one thing after another happen. =\

Everything is expensive in Aus. I'm Canadain, and i went down there for 3 weeks to vist a friend, and it was $7.00 for a McChicken meal at McDonalds. It was about $7.50 for a Venti Caramel Frapachino at StarBucks. But people generally make more money there because the cost of living is higher.

It's kinda cool to see them lowering the price like this. Sounds pretty fair.

Think this a world wide thing.

In the UK they've done the same and dropped the 90-day sub to £19.99 (from £27.99). This promotional offer is only available until 1st March, and lasts as long as you continuously subscribe. If you unsubscribe and later re-subscribe the price goes back up to the original cost.

Just for info £19.99 is 32.00AUD, so Australia is still getting a more raw deal.
