The cost of games in the last 20 years has most certainly gone up, as have our wages, and the cost of living in general too so the wage rise isn't really a fair compromise, everything else costs more.
To shock you blokes in the US and Canada, a 750ml bottle of Greygoose vodka costs ~$80, in Perth anyway.
I've been importing games from the US and UK, using sites like GreenmanGaming and VPN clients to get past Aussie Steam prices for few years now as it is seriously ridiculous. And I will keep doing it for as long as is needed.
Physical content is one thing, but digital content such as that on Steam costing more? If I finish this sentence the way I should I'll end up with an infraction so you can imagine what I'm thinking right now
Log story short, this won't affect me directly because I'll just import, and I would love to refuse EA games but that's a lie... Battlefield, FIFA, maybe a new Battlefront. EA is just the unfortunate name attached to the titles. The devs are just as hard working as any other game dev and still deserve a little credit, not their fault the upper echelon are fat greedy bastards who probably havnt played a game since the Atari.Edited by gtarmanrob - 7/10/13 at 12:51pm
