Strong dollar strikes again, Modern Warfare 2 US$30 more in Australia

The headline says it all, really, but to get into the specifics – Steam has the price of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 set at US$59.99 for US customers, while the Oz version is at US$89.99.

Put simply, you’d have to be high or stupid to buy Modern Warfare 2 off Steam if you live in Australia.

While I was on Kotaku AU I reported a similar pricing disparity with Call of Duty 4. Before you get angry at Steam – don’t. This is Activision Blizzard’s way of playing nice with local retailers so, if you have angst (which you should), be sure to direct it at the publisher.

If you must have the game, buy it from Play-Asia.
