Aussie gamers screwed over Duke Nukem Forever pricing

Screwed again.

That's pretty much how local gamers consistently feel when it comes to game pricing. With the Australian dollar rising against US currency, you might expect items like games to get cheaper, but that's far from the case. In fact, it's generally believed that not only do local retails gouge gamers at the cash register, but that a lot of publishers do it via digital distribution as well.

Here is what you do, no Bullshit. Wait one month after release, then start looking. Bought Crysis 2 today for $19.99, got Shogun 2,Bulletstorm and Deep Space 2 all for $20.00 each.

Edit, I don't like American Prices, I would shit a brick on Aussie prices and would wait until it dropped, speak with your dollars.

Why is Australia so damn expensive?

People really need to grasp the concept of how it works. It doesn't work compared to the US dollar.
And even if it did and prices dropped, I imagine when the dollar drops vs the US you will complain when the games go back up.
