I wouldn't necessarily say that Ekiushi. Perhaps in video games or movies we get screwed up but the natural landscape and living conditions more then make up for it.
Yes, I guess that actually is true. I guess I take that for granted though. Oh, and the NZ South Island has a better landscape. Well, in my opinion. But we got screwed over so badly with movies, video games, Time Life! American Gangster was released in America like 2 months before we got it!
Yea, I know how you feel. Games in Canada used to be $59-$69 and sometimes $79 depending on who was making it, and for which console. But now because of the dollar, every game I've bought has been between $19-$49. I think we [Canadians] had an advantage though when the dollar hit even because we are in the same territory. We could just order all our stuff from the US and get it shipped to Canada with minimal shipping cost. Businesses were starting to see this, and had to equalize the prices. Hopefully something will happen to put some relief on Australian prices, but who knows how long that will take.
