I read something on IGN about video games prices, and a 60 USD Xbox game was like 110 USD in Australia, so it has something to do with Australia's dumb import taxes. They must obviously do it to promote people to buy domestic products, but a lot of major products are just not Australian made.
lol THAT sucks. Its really hard to buy domestic if there ISNT AN INDUSTRY THERE. Australia is pretty over the top with their laws. I know for cars you cant have aftermarket rims that are over 2" difference from stock, you cant lower or lift your vehicle more than 2-3", and you need a permit to shave handles and such.
