Elder Scrolls Online's Grind Begins Before You Even Start The Game

Elder Scrolls Online's Grind Begins Before You Even Start The Game

Australian retailer JB Hi-Fi - never a bastion of serious business - has a sticker for The Elder Scrolls Online that is as funny as it is foreboding.

And yes, Americans, that $US88 pricetag is correct. That works out to be USD$81.50 by today's conversion.

    Why would $88 US trade to $81.50 US?

    Am I missing something?

      Australian tax.

        The point was that it says US to US, I'm not confused as to regional price disparities :P

          I know, but I'm saying that's still expensive for no reason even at US prices :P

          its just a typo, he meant to write AUD. I am sure

            I dont see anything wrong with his writing? He said. Yes americans (here in australia) its $88 and that for you worksout to be $81.50 :)

              no he said "yes Americans, that $US88...''
              What I am saying is he meant $AUD88

      It's just Australia tax mate. It never made sense. You can even see stuff that is $100AUD which is equals to $90AUD.

        It's obviously a typo and is meant to read $AUD88 which converts to USD$81.50.

          I know :P I'm just trying to troll and make fun of this typo.

      I think that Kotaku AU has a thing that automatically takes raw $ numbers and adds $US on content that they syndicate from Kotaku US - it's just in this case it wasn't a US price at all. @markserrels can probably confirm/deny.

        yup, that is 100% correct. this has been happening as long as i can remember...

      It should be "that $88 pricetag is correct. That works out to be USD$81.50 by today’s conversion." obviously.

      Current xe.com conversion of $A88 gives $US81.50

    JB Hifi, you've done it again. But honestly, waiting for the game was grind enough. :>

    And thats why I usually dont buy games here. Its PC I used the several discounted websites there and Amazon has download codes for PS4.

    I bought the game from a CD Key supplier, $72 and I got the Imperial edition :) +1 to me XD

    was looking forward to this game right up until i found out it cost $80+ to purchase it and you only get to use it for 30 days before the subscription kicks in!
    If you are going to have a subscription fee and your game isn't World Of Warcraft the game better be free to install etc!

    Think i'll skip this doomed MMO.
