I grabbed MW2 a few weeks back when it was $14 on impulse, played half an hour before I was bored to tears and haven't touched it since

I have a suspicion about the Oz Game Tax. The guilty party/parties may not be the publishers, rather a combination of the lack of R18+ and the big retailers (EB games, JB HiFi) here in Australia/New Zealand forcing Steam etc to set their prices the same as local retailers or restrict sales. Both UK and US Amazon seem to have no problem accepting orders and shipping these games here.

On the UK direct2drive site, I was looking at Rage and this line caught my attention.

"This product will be available for purchase worldwide, excluding Australia and New Zealand."

Suggesting Direct2Drive wont differentiate their price, so they can't accept orders from here.

I thought the R rating issue was sorted out?

Another re-skined Call of Duty title......they can keep it for that price. Why dont they just sell us a cheap DLC pack for MW2 with the new maps. RORT..
