I'm like preorder bonuses, but sometimes it's a bit annoying when the one's you really want, you can't get because of where you live.

Headset is most likely a piece-o-junk model. The rest, will show up in the marketplace. Novel, ebay.

The headset is being sold for xbox and ps3 for 29.99 and 39.99 respectively, not high quality but, not a bad bonus.

EDIT: metal case looks pretty nice, and the novel from australia is interesting.

That headset looks pretty cool, but Aus gets a book. I myself am not much of a reader, but a video game book is still pretty cool.

The headset would be the one for me, if that version doesn't come to the UK then I'll happily wait until the game is cheap. :P

A gaming headset. Time to cancel that gamestop preorder and start buying at best buys.

You don't know how economics work do you? 110 Aussie dollars = 60 U.S. Dollars.
You don't know how economics work do you laugh? Just kidding, but the exchange rate nowadays is hovering around 1:1. The reason it's so much more in Australia is because they have luxary taxes on everything, and they are big taxes too. But the money goes towards providing free health care and dirt cheap college tutitions (compared to America). So unlike America where we can't find a way to tax the rich in order to help the poor, Australia has already found a highly effective way to distribute the wealth. It's a real shame no one is willing to impliment it to, I'd gladly pay double for videogames, and everything else i DON'T need, for those perks.
