...enjoy the US$2.50 you just stole off me and be grateful I bought the game at all.

And know that I would have bought it AGES ago if you hadn't done what you did with all of your games - hiked the price just because we're in Australia, in some cases to nearly double that of the game everywhere else (and still in US dollars, too!)

It still smarts to have to pay 50% extra for Alpha Protocol today, because I know that the only reason I'm paying more is because of a bunch of clueless corporates who don't give a toss about games and just want to maximise the profits of a struggling company by using the business strategies they learnt in the 80s.

But I'll pay it, because finally the actual stolen portion of the price is less than what I would hand to a beggar on the street. And that, Sega Australia, is all you deserve.

Well, on the european Steam we get almost all games for 50% more than in the US, as most publishers think (or better said - want us to think), that 1 dollar = 1 euro.

(currently the actual exchange rate is 1€=1,45$)

We get AP for 5€. (that's 7.24$)

Still, the prices during the sales are ace.
