OzGameshop does free postage btw.

But you may be waiting a while, at least 2-3 weeks if not 1-2 more.

$60 for the US, that's more than games usually cost for them too. Activision are the worst, though this doesn't bother me as I wouldn't buy the game if it was $1

In the meantime, they've trademarked a score of new titles of COD. They'll pump them out as fast as they can until they run it into the ground... like those music games. Plus they charge you extra for the DLC too.

Section 8 game? $20
Section 8 DLC? $2

Cod game? $100
DLC? $15 and rising.
