Although you raise a valid point, the dollar has been on parody with the US for roughly 2 years now. I realise the pricing will never be equal in all regions but you would think that it wouldnt be almost double the price still.
Ill check out the other threads.
*parity. Yes, the dollar has been comparable for ages now. It's the pricing down in these parts of the world that is the parody . Boom tish. Sorry, just bored *tip-toes off*

How else is sony going 2 pay their share holders their dividens every year just like any other foriegn company trading in aus gougeing the crap out of us. They see us a soft targets and gouge us as
from every cent we have. There is no one out there with enough authority to put a stop to it unfortunately. Just dont buy any software products from the psn store and if you than don't complain about it. Don't forget we do have a choice in what happens with our money.....I personaly dont waste my time with aussie retailers when it comes to games and accessory's i purchase everything from england and it gets delivered to my door for half the price than what you pay at the retailers.....I no what i am doing it's not good for aussie jobs but hey if i can get it cheaper o/s well why the hell not do it.......... Sooner or later company's will get the message wether they like it or not...

Yep, you don't see tent cities of people who have been kicked out of their own homes in Australia.
We do have lower unemployment rates, but the fact remains we still need to work really hard to enjoy ourselves, i gather its the same for them too. Honestly i love Australia.. Hate our PM but love the country. To increase the price 100% though is a little ridiculous. I dont think Australia is that much better off that it warrants such an exploitably large increase in selling price.
I don't mean to be arrogant towards any nation, i have my respects to the americans too as my brother in law is from new york. But i stand by these peoples decision to protest the selling price of games in Australia.
I suppose im barking up the wrong tree. But we should not stop peoples protest, explain to them why but we shouldn't support Sony's tactics in explaining it.
