    The planet Mars costs much more than that I think.

    There shouldn't be a '£' sign in that photoshop pic should there? Shouldn't even be a '$' sign if it says 'dollars' in the sentence. Dear god, I've become an internet pedant.

    @Radimir, I was about to tell you how wrong you were, when I had the foresite to check EB games. Jesus shit new ps3 games up to $118 AUD (which is worth marginally more than US right now). I forget these things because I'm so spoiled by steam.

    From what I understand it's because Sony cannot undercut the RRP. Still ridiculous though.

    I'll buy 2. Of the planet Mars that is.

    Discounts on digital, download only games should be mandatory. However, the fact that retailers have to buy and stock these games means that no company will under cut their prices on newly released games. The reason Steam and other PC game services can offer games so cheaply is directly the result of the reduced footprint at retail and the fact that the model for sales of PC games has shifted from retail to download. I can guarantee that Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo would love to offer day one, discounted downloads on their services if Gamestop didn't mind.

    The sad thing is that $93 would be cheap for a brand new game in Australia, and only mildly-expensive for a new game bought and downloaded digitally.

    Completely agree with db1331.
