    Too much in Australia

    Really enjoyed the Beta but at around 3 times the price of other countries The Division has me divided.

    It's not Ubisoft fault, it's Australia as a country that is really expensive, look at the average prices of all new videogames coming out, around 100 $

    Sorry, I hear the complaint about game prices in Australia all the time (one guy was complaining that a $20 game guide cost $60 over where you live), I doubt the game companies are purposely pricing them high just for down under.

    You can buy Gold from another country for $65 as opposed to $150 here in Oz but it's a lot of stuffing around.

    Thats cool, I guess they will because they can and we have little we can do but not buy overpriced games.

    Ya that really really sucks!

    I've heard about the pricing discrepancy in the UK as well. Other than import tariffs I don't quite understand why. Especially since downloads aren't cheaper.

    At least I know here in Canada the price difference is because our money isn't worth ****e. :/

    Hm, if it's any consolation in Germany you would even have to pay roughly 2 Australian dollars more for a PS4 gold edition. For a standard PC edition you'd have to pay more in Australia though.

    Gold edition (for PS4)
    UK ~117 AU$ (60 GBP)
    US ~138 AU$ (100 US$)
    Australia ~150 AUD
    Germany ~152 AUD (100 €)

    Standard edition (for PC)
    UK ~78 AU$ (40 GBP)
    US ~83 AU$ (60 US$)
    Germany ~84 AU$ (55 €)
    Australia ~90 AU$
