Ever been stung paying 30, 40, 80% more for games because you live in Australia (and also a few other countries)?


news/1/6/16996_38.jpg exposes exactly how much identical products from international stores are being marked up. allows you to select your region, then compare that to two different regions - highlighting the over-priced items. It also goes a bit further, delving into bargains in your country of choice - and seeing what titles are being hidden from your region.


How this is useful, depends on the person - to make good use of SteamPrices, you'd need to buy in more than one regions - however, there are techniques around this - one easy example is having someone gift you the game from a different region.
