GMG adds BioShock Infinite to ANZ discount list, get it for $55 instead of $80

BioShock: Infinite

By on January 30, 2013 at 7:39 pm

Green Man Gaming took one for the team earlier in the month and created a permanent discount code that would give 30% off to all games where publishers had forced them to jack up their price for Australians. Now they’ve just sent word that BioShock Infinite has been added to the list of games where the 30% off coupon will work.

So — if you want BioShock Infinite for $55 instead of the $80 you’re being slugged with on Steam, head over to Green Man Gaming and pop in the code GMGAU-3J9MF-MUINW to give yourself a nice handy discount.

The code is also valid on other price-jacked games, so if you want Borderlands 2 or its DLC Season Pass, or perhaps Spec Ops: The Line, Civilization V: Gods & Kings, or XCOM: Enemy Unknown, then the code will work there as well. Enjoy!

BioShock Infinite launches on March 26.

As opposed to say – the $45 we were able to get it at with the 25% pre-order voucher pre-jacking, or the $39.95 we can still get it for at Gamelane.

The ANZ coupons was a nice sentiment sure, but we’re still getting a raw deal at the end of the day.

 

Though it’s $15 more, i will buy it from them for having the balls to do it. $5 of that would be tax anyway.

just dont expect to be able to actually buy the game as their payment system is broken and they dont reply to their support emails

 

Or you could get the CE from EB and get some nice loot (including a badass statue).

EDIT: Or not. The CE with the statue is sold out.

 

not to rock the boat or anything but….i swear games were cheaper before GoN became a joint partner

I was buying games for no more than $40

 

I bought it from Greenman gaming for $43.25 two and a half weeks ago, before they applied the aussie tax. It’s a shame, GMG used to be the go to place for fair Steam prices. I still have amazon I guess.

I reckon they were too, sometimes bringing things to light is not a good idea?

I was able to pick this up about 2 weeks ago to for about the same pick as well, thank god I did. It’s dame shame they are still inflating the prices like this.

 

Our ANZ version doesn’t include any of the cashback or store credit they are advertising either, will definitely be hitting up the cheaper key sites this time ’round.

 

I imagine it’ll change, slowly, and eventually there’ll be more reasonable regional pricing. I haven’t paid the aussie tax on anything over $10 for years now. Console games from ozgameshop, zavvi etc. Steam games through Greenman or Amazon (who are very lax with their location check).

I don’t mind paying the aussie tax if the game is dirt cheap anyway. With some steam sales giving a 75% discount, even if it is 2x the price of the US store, if I can get a relatively recent AAA game for $9.99 then I’m buying it. Probably best to think about what the game is worth to you, and not how cheaply you can get it elsewhere “if only”.

 

Its $45 from OGS including shipping, and I’m sure they’ll put up a digital only copy too as they have with most new games.

wasn’t there an inquiry into all this price jacking from publishers ?
didn’t they find that when confronting the publishers that some, if not most, refused to comment on the reasons of price jacking ?
