    Can someone please explain why for LEGO Batman 3 the US cost is $6.60 but the Australian cost is $29.68. $6.60 in Australian dollars is $9.13 according to Google. I understand how prices can vary depending on the country and other factors like tax but where does the extra $20.55 come from?

    I'm getting pissed off lately at this lack of season passes in sales. Still waiting for deals for the evil within, dying light, watchdogs, and the witcher 3 season passes (will probably just get that without though since its a good enough deal).

    Oh well maybe next week.

    Dragon age GOTY edition is pretty tempting at $25..

    Shame Darksiders 2 still has 2 unobtainables, it's only £8.50 on the Russian marketplace.
    This is my comment, there are many like it but this one is mine.

    Yeah those UNTAXED American prices don't really convert to the other TAXED prices do they.

    The extra DwG stuff has now been added. Now, after 12 hours doing this, I sleep.

    The Swindle is also 50% off, and is the only thing I've bothered picking up so far. Kinda interested in Don't Starve as well.

    laugh You do know the US sales tax rates, right? They are a joke and don't explain the big price differences. However, often the prices are close to the EUR prices. So after their highest tax, they pay nearly the same price as people in countries with the EUR as a currency.
    It still doesn't explain crazy price differences, as is often the case. I guess the real reason has something to do with oversea business, as sometimes the USD prices are also higher than the EUR or GBP prices. I'd say it depends on where the developer, or publisher has it's main headquarter. I just feel sorry for the Australian people, as they seem to be paying more almost all the time...

    The main issue with the Australian prices is that they apply the same percentages of the sale, but the price still isn't reasonable because the list price isn't reasonable. Years old 360 games like black ops are still sitting on the marketplace at $100! For whatever reason the digital marketplace does not adjust their prices to reflect the actual market in most cases, where games such as this will be $20-$30 on a shelf. The sale prices are somewhat competitive with what our shelf prices are, but only for a day/week depending on the sale.

    They just don't care. The marketplace has been like this since the start, they have very little incentive to change it now unless everyone stops buying stuff from the digital marketplace, which won't happen.
