Believe the affected people are in Australia, where games cost more for various reasons.


"Various reasons" being an invisible tax due to price gouging.

Not to mention we will soon be getting a real tax over digital goods so not only are we being taxed by our government we are being charged more then we should pay (price gouging) by companies who do it.

There is no valid reason for games costing more then there American counterparts.


Cost of living in general is much higher in Australia than in the USA and annual salary tends to be higher to account for this: http://www.numbeo.com/cost-of-living/compare_countries_result.jsp?country1=United+States&country2=Australia

Australia has a different economic market so it would be unreasonable to act like prices should be identical.




They shouldn't be identical sure but they are to high at the moment then what they should be

What are people talking about?

I've been buying games on steam for years and their prices are really good, even Steam Sales, this stuff is really affordable.

Or these bad prices are in a different country?

Have fun seeing how much Europe and America pay compared to Australians :/


Im looking at the prices and the actual steam store in front of me, the website you've shown me is either not up to date or just lying.

The website says Dynasty Warriors Extreme Legends 8 in Australia is $49.99 and America pays $19.99.

On my screen with the Steam Store however shows Dynasty Warriors Extreme Legends 8 is $49.99.

This is not the only game I've looked at.



Probably out of date but steam does charge us extra.

Most $10 games cost us $70+
