    Looking at the prices and the different currencies, and they really don't make any sense Imo.

    Star Trek US$ 14,99, AU$ 14,97
    Transformers: US$ 14,99, AU$ 24,97

    Why is Star Star Trek about the same price in US$ and AU$, but Transformers is priced over 60% in AU$ compared to US$.

    See some of the same strange differences when comparing to the €, so if somebody can explain this to me, it will be very much appreciated.
    i don't know about AU$, but difference between US$, GBP and EU is that in the US they are forced to announce prices WITHOUT tax (which is around 8-10% depending on state), while in UK and EU they are forced to announce price WITH tax (which ranges between 18-21%)

    gonna see if i can pick up pacific rim, i love del toro and although he wasn't involved with this game I dont think, I still want it, I might also try and get R.I.P.D and reel steel.
    Hello boosting friend! toast

    I will be grabbing some of these as well and wil need boosting help. HMU for RIPD, Pacific Rim or Real Steel.

    Also, nice job getting this up early, lp.compute
    Sorry man, what does HMU mean? lol and yea man, up for boosting all 3 of those if i pick them up, hope I can but then again its my daughters second b/day in like 2 weeks, if I do get any of them it'll be on monday so I'll let you know...*sigh* I've missed boosting, our serious sam sessions were fun and if you let me know when your free, we'll set up a shank 2 session suitable for both of us. I've noticed aswell you aint done the coop for shank, you know you can just do that on your own right?
    HMU = Hit Me Up

    Don't hit me up though. I'm not looking for help.

    I saw this thread has 60+ comments and thought, "ooh, gonna be some good deals this week".
    Needless to say I am disappointed.
    I went outside once, the graphics were amazing but the characters and storyline were truly awful.

    I do know about the tax but that doesn't explain why one game is over 60% in AU$ compared to US$ to another game on the same gamemarket.

    In my example either Star Trek would cost AU$ 24,97 or Transformers would cost AU$ 14,97.

    What a bunch of shit games. X-men Arcade is probably the only decent one out of all them and I got it a long time ago when it was free.

    Ehh nothing of interest as usual for me. I suppose it's nice to see something new for a change though instead of the same old recycled deals we more than often get.
    I like what I like and I don't what I don't.

    Next week not looking much better

    Storm 15-Oct to 21-Oct 50% off
    Capsized 50% off
    Tekken Tag Tournament 2 50% off
    Ben 10 Omniverse™ 50% off
    Ben 10™ Galactic Racing 50% off
    BEN 10 ULTIMATE ALIEN™ 50% off
    Tomb Raider Underworld 50% off
    Battlestations Midway 75% off
    Balltestations Pacific 80% off
    I am looking forward to getting Storm. Capsized looks fun. Might even bite on the Battlestations games for $5.
    Storm seems nice. Capsized too but take note completionists: two out of twelve achievements in this game have been unobtainable from the start. I'll probably skip Battlestations, after Dogfight, HAWX and Ace Combat I've had enough of flight games for a while. Tomb Raider Underworld is nice but I already have that one.
