The Aussie dollar has been relatively strong against the British Pound for some time now. One online UK games retailer has decided to take full advantage of that.
OzGameShop is a UK retailer that specialises in exporting games to Australian and New Zealand customers. It lists all its prices in Australian Dollars and you'll find that they are very competitive.
New releases such as Mafia II, Kane & Lynch 2, Madden 11, Super Mario Galaxy 2 and StarCraft II are all $30-50 under the Australian RRP. And there are plenty of older titles available at heavy discounts.
However, its catalogue isn't comprehensive. When searching for new releases, for example, there's no sign of Dragon Quest IX. And several games I did find were listed as out of stock, including Red Dead Redemption on 360, StarCraft II, Toy Story 3 and - surprisingly - Green Day Rock Band.
Here's a random selection of titles:
BioShock 2 (PC) $18.90 Blur (PS3) $39.99 Brutal Legend (360) $18.79 Demon's Souls (PS3) $43.99 Kane & Lynch 2 Limited Edition (360) $57.99 Kane & Lynch 2 Limited Edition (PS3) $62.99 Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days (DS) $18.99 Little King's Story (Wii) $11.79 Madden 11 (360, PS3) $69.19 Madworld (Wii) $10.89 Red Dead Redemption (PS3) $64.99 Super Mario Galaxy 2 (Wii) $59.99 Tiger Woods 11 (360) $58.19
