    Too expensive in au?

    Off you go, be good little capitalists - import your goods since it's cheaper.
    Seems perfectly reasonable to me.

    Strong Aussie dollar doesn't seem to be making any difference (with games at least)!!!

    Dunno, X4, looks dodgey. Not really a professional outfit when they have trouble spelling and don't bother to have the website QA checked. Avoid, regardless of the apparent $$$ saved...

    I've used him before and have had no issues. In fact I recommend cdkeyshere. The operator has proven to be of good character several times IMO.

    ps: I do have a russian copy of Black Ops from there which requires a small amount of tinkering to assure english

    When you buy a key and this is the description,
    you know the whole site is dodgy ...


    Hahaha, found another description that was even more blatant:
    I'd be willing to bet they are all keys from products sourced in Russia ...

    Really, Geng?
    I mean how easy is it for some people to create realistic keys from generators and pass them for legit? I'm not up to speed with all this licensing caper, but if there is xx game going for, say $5 more, on another site that doesn't look like it was put together by a 13 year old using 733tspeak, then I'm inclined to go that way.
    Horses for courses I suppose, but I trust professionalism over cheaper deals any day.

    Wow, thanks for the tip with Ozgameshop - I've just been comparing prices between them and Steam / JB HiFI Online and I'm floored, double the price was no exaggeration.

    Definitely added to my bookmarks, I'll be checking there first from now on.

    I just noticed that Deus Ex: Human Revolution price has been increased for Aussies. Was in the low $40 range (low $50 range for Augmented edition), but it's now $62.99 ($71.99 for Augmented).

    $41.49 from Ozgameshop.

    Steamprices is a good website to check if you're concerned that you're being ripped off.

    /au SteamPrices.com

    That's why I bought a US region PS3 from a Hong Kong online shop, massively cheaper to buy the console and lots more available content at a much lower price. You just need to wait a week or two for the bluray or dvd's to turn up.

    Another thumbs up for ozgameshop. Thanks to Geng I'll be a regular there. I'll be buying twice the games I have to date and still saving money. Two purchases so far, 4 games. Very happy. There was a problem with one payment over a holiday weekend but it was sorted out without issue.

    Actually I was talking about cdkeyshere not ozgameshop.. Ozgameshop tends to be good but has the 2 week delivery time. cdkeyshere tends to have more the dodgily packaged and presented product but just saying that he is not a bad fella and has dealt with issues fairly. For most peeps I would recommend to stick with ozgameshop though.
