[QUOTE=Wombler;2644658]It’s not just Australia, it’s the same in many countries and this has been a regular complaint here in the UK for years.
A lot of US companies now block software downloads from certain countries to try and prevent users buying the electronic download version cheaper from the US website.
It’s not rare for a South Korean to pay twice or three times as much for software and contents titles. It’s not always easy to use the downloadable services - iTunes and Apple Store included. I paid a little over US$300 for a single copy of Windows 7 - on DVD. That’s at least $100 more expensive than a 16GB Nexus 7.
