    Bayonetta for nothing? What's not to like?! I already own it on disc, but a digital copy will save me the bother of having to get up, walk to my game shelf, take it out of the box and put it into the drive. I mean, who needs that kind of hassle in this day and age?

    Modern life favours the lazy.

    Can we just take a moment to appreciate how ridiculous the Australian prices for Call of Duty are? In the US, Modern Warfare is $10. Seems fair. The game is ten years old. Still more than I'd pay in a brick and mortar store though. In Australia, its 25. What the actual ****? I'm used to paying more but not two and a half times more. The regular price is $50! I could go buy eight physical copies for that much!

    Needless to say, I'm not getting anything in the 360 bargain bin this week.
    You don't pay 2,5x more, you pay 2x more, as 10USD=12,5AUD. If there is no sales tax that is, which varies from state to state. I find it baffeling that people don't seem to get that USD,CAD,AUD and so on are different currencies. They're not worth the same because they're all called dollars. You wouldn't expect a Euro and a british pound to be worth the same, so why would you think that the different Dollars are worth the same?

    10 USD is actually 11 AUD, meaning we're paying 23 USD. Besides, let's say for argument's sake that you're right and we're paying twice as much. That is still insane. I shouldn't get charged twice or two and a half times as much because I live in Australia.

    I feel like $15 is still too high for MW3. My disc broke but I don't feel like I can justify replacing it at that price
    Agreed. Actually bought MW3 off ebay for $6.

    Without bringing politics in to explain the idea of inflation, you also have to realize that the exchange rate is not the same. That being said, it's also not 2.5x more. So again, I'll point to politics for this. It can be a mixture of high taxes, what the average yearly income for the average Australian family is, or what kind of political party is in charge of your country. I can't answer those as I don't live there.

    Um... DLC? Can't possibly have that on sale at the same time as the game, would make too much sense. warning

    Forza Horizon 2 is really good for those who don't have it.
    Just consider it an expansion of the first one instead of comparing it with the Xbox One version.
    The handling is exactly like the first and no DLC.
    And less than month ago it had a better discount, which was still too much for an old game. Waiting better discount or gwg.

    I was really hoping for Assassin's Creed DLC on sale.

    You are not paying 2.5 times as much, you are paying the exact same price for that game as people pay in the US.

    You have no concept of foreign currency and exchange rates. First you try and make out the 10 USD = 10 AUD. Then you claim 10 USD is 11 AUD despite being told that 10 USD = 12.5 AUD.

    allstar738 is right.

    Minimum wage in Australia is $18.29 AUD, in the US it is $7.25 USD

    To buy Modern Warfare in Australia you would have to work for 82 minutes to earn $25 AUD and in the US you would have to work for 82 minutes to earn $10 USD.

    Tekken 6 only interesting deal since I haven't played in a very long time and going to pick it up to hopefully finish it this time around.

    Style game like bulletstorm,Where do you play for points.But you have to lurk in the corner
    Because you are dead in 2 seconds(
    Even on the easy).On the plus cool weapons (
    Each has two shot modes).

    You do not have to collect garbage!
    Achievement only for playing at the highest level.When unlocking a super pistol, each opponent hits one shot.
    Only the bosses can make some more funcry
