Ouch. Sucks to live down under. Maybe they had to make it cost that much because of the gaming laws are more strict? I don't know, or you can just move to America and help us take down the only person that's against video games in America, Jack Thompson.

Uhh... aren't things in australia expensive in general? PS3 here is $399, but isn't the PS3 in australia like 599Au or something like that?

What's the big deal? On in the UK the RRP is listed as £29.99 which is 67.17AuD or 58.50 USD. This happens to the UK all the time.
BTW, a $399 Playstation 3 will cost you £399 over here or $780 USD. Our PS3 games are generally priced at £50-60 (97-117 USD or 112-134AUD). Who's getting ripped off now?

I think you guys are forgetting, they have Kangaroos in Australia. I live in the U.S. and I have never seen a kangaroo in the wild in my life. If you ask me, WE'RE the ones that are getting ripped off... =)

Thanks man you've given me an idea. I'm going to travel the world capturing animals, and then letting them breed in the wild in different territories so people all over the world can experience the awesome of them!!
