$30 more than everybody else? No thanks!

Here at games.on.net, we love two things: PC gaming, and reasonable prices. Put them together and you don’t have Aliens: Colonial Marines, which may have released its PC specs today but also revealed its inflated Australian price: $30 more than everybody else is paying.
Buying the game on Steam will cost you $79.95, while US and UK players only have to pay the equivalent of AUD $49 and $48 respectively. Thankfully our pals at Green Man Gaming have it for a very reasonable $49, and there’s probably some sort of mad discount code floating around the site too. We are of course a partner of Green Man Gaming as we outlined here, but that doesn’t mean you should pass up a bargain!
In any case, you’ll still need to check out those PC requirements — and here they are:
Minimum Specs: Operating System: Windows XP SP3. Processor: 2 GHz Intel Dual Core Processor. RAM: 2GB RAM (XP),2GB RAM (Vista). HD: 20GB free hard disk space. Optical Drive: DVD. Sound Card: DirectX 9.0c compatible. Video Card:NVIDIA GeForce 8500/ATI Radeon HD 2600 (256 minimum).
Recommended Specs: Operating System: Windows XP SP3/Vista/Windows 7. Processor: 2.3 GHz Intel Quad CoreProcessor. RAM: 2GB RAM. HD: 20GB free hard disk space. Optical Drive: DVD. Sound Card: DirectX 9.0c compatible. VideoCard: NVIDIA GeForce GTX560/ATI Radeon HD 5850 (512 minimum).
Other Requirements: Initial installation requires one-time internet connection for Steam authentication; software installations required (included with the game) include Steam Client, DirectX 9, Microsoft .NET 4 Framework, Visual C++ Redistributable 2005, Visual C++ Redistributable 2008, Visual C++ Redistributable 2010, and AMD CPU Drivers (XP Only/AMD Only).
