I did just read games like Mass Effect cost 6000 MSP in Australia, well, it was described to convert to 99$, which is 58€ and utterly ridiculous, as it's quite near the price of a new release.
360 GOD pricing varies by territory News // Xbox 360 /// Eurogamer - Games Reviews, News and More
I think our 30€ is a bit rip off too, like 25€ would be ok, but it certainly is not so far fetched as 58€, or 99 Australian Dollars. I even feel bad for you and this is not sarcasm.
The best thing with this update was the rating system, yet I saw some people had rated MW2, so I think there is one thing that should be repaired...
And what about buying a pair of virtual Adidas shoes? Like 400 MSP, so am I really willing to pay to advertise?
Just now in my desk, under a pile, is Alissa Quart's book "Branded", now it feels worth reading.
