    Found this very interesting article on Eurogamer. Thought some of you lot might find it interesting too.

    I either work out a simple conversion rate or go by the 'can of coke' or 'pint of beer' rule, not so tricky really.

    So they tried to keep 10 points close to a penny in UK, not so dishonest ?

    Companies have to price by market, otherwise nobody would buy in poorer countries.

    I do kind of agree here that it creates an illusion of fairness, however otherwise they would simply create country sites in local languages and currencies, you'd still not get a better deal.

    Its not an unfair system as you can vote with your feet, simply throw out your xbox and go do something more productive...
