I arrived slightly late to the 360 party and by the time I stopped murdering zombies in a mall long enough to hear about Beautiful Katamari, it was impossible to find on shelves in my town. With really bad luck on ebay, importing was looking like my only option, and not a very attractive one. Then came Games on Demand, showing up on our Xbox dashboards like a shady uncle. The answer to our prayers, right? Sadly no.
By sheer luck I found a preowned copy for $29 at JBHiFi today and bought it. But as I was coming home I couldn't remember why I hadn't just downloaded it. As soon as I looked it up on live, I remembered. $70. For a two and a half year old game. Now that is annoying enough, but then you have to think 'Well I bet they don't charge that for the US' and no, no they do not.
A few weeks ago I had reminded myself why I don't play too many games by flicking steam pages from US to AU settings and looking at the prices. I just did that for the entire games on demand AU library and I'm sure you can all guess it was horrifying.
Still, if any of my fellow Aussies can stomach the reminder, I made a pretty GB list to show the differences,
