      • I agree, buying from local sources for that ridiculous price is just idiocy. Who cares about supporting local industry when they are plainly just gouging

        • Ignorance. Maybe look at how it actually works and at who’s actually getting gouged before commenting. Idiot. Now maybe if local suppliers dropped their selling prices to retailers we’d be fine, but there’s enough comments and articles about that.

    • Almost every big release game on the PC is now suffering from regional pricing on Steam. This list will be very useful in the near future I’d imagine. That is of course, if you decide against importing (which quite frankly, I think any PC gamer would be a fool not to do).

    • I’m assuming the Mass Effect 2 listed here is for PS3.
      EB and GAME both have it on sale right now, which explains the low price. Usually it sells for $110.
      I’m not sure if the game is on sale at JB right now, or if that’s just it’s normal price.

  • I bought Duke Nukem Forever from GAME in-store for $88 yesterday. Is this for new financial year prices? Or just online buys?

  • Why don’t you guys just buy from play asia, they have pretty much every new release for around 50 AUD delivered. You would have to be insane to give any of these stores your hard earned cash.

  • steam sales are on for the next 10 days, crazy deals, like for example for the price you pay for a new release at Eb games (110 dollars) you could buy between 30-50 titles from this steam sales, most likely more. An titles, i mean full on games.

  • What I find funny is the hate towards *game retailers* for being so over-priced etc…

    As some one who works for one of these companies, I see our staff and H/O compaining about the prices too. It’s not upto us to drop games down to prices of $40-60 because on most AAA titles our cost is $80+

    We are forever harping on publishers to give us a better deal so that we can pass on the savings. Unfortunately our hands are also tied to a degree too. Remember, almost all of us at these stores are hardcore gamers too.. these prices don’t just affect you guys in *the public* it affects us too.. business wise and as consumers ourselves
