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.

      • The point was that it says US to US, I’m not confused as to regional price disparities 😛

        • I know, but I’m saying that’s still expensive for no reason even at US prices 😛

          • 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.

    • 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
