    I think I owned a copy of Stalker back in the day, but didn't have the patience for an open world at the time. The original + expansion for $10 is a deal I can't turn down, though.

    the reason i ask, is cause you guys tend to get way better prices, so its easier to get a foreigner to gift it.

    for example, you guys have bad company 2 cheap atm dont you?

    cause its not exactly on special here :S

    Can't you do anything to counter such high prices? I don't think its the developers getting that extra money, is it the Government?

    publishers here in Au get exclusive deals, so they can dictate the terms to steam. only workaround is getting gifted by a friendly chap overseas, who gets the other prices.

    So its the publishers demanding the extra cost. Thats just wrong, there needs to be some sort of global fairness act regarding product pricing. I await a one world government, we needs to change things and each current separate government should act as a secondary government. A little radical and risky but I think thats the future or at least I hope.

    That's my philosophy for almost everything in life, unless it JUST came out and I know that I need it then.

    Cheers ShiB :p

    Bethesda Pack looks good on Steam guyyss, dunno if you've all already seen it but it's £38/$59 for Fallout 3, Oblivion and Morrorwind. Not personally much of an RPG fan but I know some of you are.
