    As a famous red-headed muppet once said, "Please explain?"

    While gouging on pricing here is not exactly new, I fail to see how one's and zero's bought in EU or USA cost less than in AU. :w

    There is no physical box.

    There is just data.

    It is almost twice the price.

    :mad:

    *sigh*

    Cars and computer games at exorbitant mark-ups are the price I pay for living on one of the best islands on Earth. Doesn't mean the publishers have to take their jealousy out on me through their product pricing.

    While I'm at it the same goes for you too Mr. BMW.

    /end rant.

    It's a travesty. All we can do is vote with our wallets.

    I only bought ESO because Green Man Gaming charged me in US$ for some reason (I'm in NZ). No way I would have paid rip-off Aussie or Euro prices for it.

    I preordered copies for myself and for the wife directly from the Bethesda site. Then I found out about the massive price gouge. Asked for a refund the next day.

    I am waiting to activate my codes from GetGames the moment that refund clears in my account.

    Note that you can have an Aussie GMG account then use hola.org, buy the game with a discount code and it works. I got my imperial edition for $US60 due to a 30% GMG discount code. Hope that makes sense!

    Muttonchops you're my hero. Unfortunately I'd already paid rip off price for my imp edition but that info is invaluable for the future!
