    Interesting. Forgive my ignorance, but what was the supply restriction for GoG?

    Again, I'd suggest getting back in touch and asking how RPM applies to agents. Because all that stuff about re-sellers has nothing to do with Steam or GoG as they're not re-sellers.

    The ACCC and I disagree. So please don't go to the trouble of suggesting anything else.

    Yes indeedy, it's been quite an exciting time with the federal inquiry going on. Will likely be a while before we hear the final word, and likely much longer before the government decides what (if anything) to do about it.

    At any rate, it's refreshing to have the people who've tried to explain away the price differences put back in their box.

    +1 for that. I'm across the ditch in NZ, but our politician in charge of these things (buggered if I know which one it is) has said they'll be watching the Aus verdict closely to see if an enquiry is required here. Hopefully they go through with it, because we get hit with the same retarded pricing as Aus (Skyrim being $100 USD on release, Prototype 2 being $80 USD on Steam, Blops2 and MW3 both being listed at $100 USD, etc).

    Not suprising to see apple get all tight lipped on it though.
