Agreed. Totally see your point.

But have to say that's a better deal than we get in New Zealand. We have a lower average income than our cuzzies in Australia.

I got my XboxOne at launch for $750.... + Forza 5 LE + AC4 SE @ $120 each. ($109 is normal from EBGames) So I only got $10 Change from my $1000 note.

That's retail tho, games since then have been purchased online. But I didnt trust my new console to be delivered. Totally worth it.
