[Borderlands] Dr Ned is out!
 
AU pay $13, US pay $10 ...

I hate price disparity but I don't think I can get angry about $3 ....



[Update] Now this on the other hand is maddening:

3rd-party DRM: SecuROM™
5 machine activation limit

WTF?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!?!

and although there's only a $3 difference in price.. i'm still pretty peeved about it.. it's not like they're competeing with retailers on this.. i dunno if its valve or 2k that have set the prices.. but it's pretty crappy if u ask me..

I thought that buying off Steam and activating the game through Steam was DRM itself?

but 2k doesn't trust steam :p :D :p ;)

is the DLC only available through steam? i've got a friend who's got the retail of bl.. how's he supposed to get the dlc?

They can stick Securom. Won't be buying this on Steam until it's removed.

It is, but most companies don't rip the retail DRM from their games before shipping it to Steam.

P.S. I wonder if I can just buy it off their website, its cheaped that steam... hmmm

[edit]
PS - checking if its possible to install the normal DLC version over Steam.
