It costs $80 a year for Live.

We cannot buy Indie Games.

New games cost TWICE AS MUCH (Games-On-Demand included, which is disgusting.)

Why do they continue to torture us...


Your minimum wage is a lot higher than the USA as well.

I don't need games to be mature.I need them to entertain me.And sometimes what entertains me is a couple chicks with huge bouncing chests pummeling each other.

I love Australia, it's one of the safest country to live in the world! Our crime rate is low, we have our 'unique own economy' where the recession doesn't affect us as much. Really, i wouldn't want to live anywhere else but Australia. Though, i'm planning to visit Austria and Luxembourg to net me a rich man ;P

Which is mostly offset by a higher cost of living.

Why would anyone want to live in Australia?


Cos we're more free than america? :)



you have bogans
lots of awesome r rated movies arent released there.
lots of great violent anime/manga is ultra censored.
lots of music is censored and some groups aren't even allowed to perform in Australia.
Racism like crazy against Aboriginal people or asians and Indians or Arabs.
weird alcohol laws.
lolicon and shotacon illegal.
rule 34 of the simpsons CARTOON fake porn will land you in jail.

yeah you guys have soooo much freedom compared to America >_>


And because of those restrictions, Australia is one of the best places to live in the world.

I would love to move over there (currently in England). But I'm scared of massive spiders and things like that <_<

I moved from the States to Australia last year.
Having said that, why would anyone pay retail when one can buy everything online for a fraction of the price?

I bought live for $40; BO2 for $60; and I can buy indie games on my U.S xbox live account (which I bring up to mean that one simply needs to create a U.S live account and they should be able to buy indie games).

I agree with the above, the government is to blame, not Microsoft. The taxes are ridiculous here.


Albi.. *ahem* Australia needs nothing short of a revolution!

We don't have massive spiders, that's an urban myth. That get around as big as your hand, but not much bigger than that. Plus you can squash the things with one finger anyway. I've only ever had one bite me and that's because I missed him with my first poke.

We do have sharks though. I went to go for a surf in Western Australia last year and thought better of it when a surfer was eaten ten minutes up the road. Then another the week after. and then another.
After the sixth one in a matter of months I decided to just go to the local pool instead.

And we also have a few other things like poisonous jelly fish that are smaller than your pinky finger nail and can kill you if they touch you. Those suckers are also invisible when in water, so good luck dodging them.

And the boy a few streets over from me was attacked by a bat a few days ago and they're pretty sure he's going to die as he contracted some messed up disease from it.

And we of course have snakes. they're pretty stupid though. I accidentally trod on a brown snake once. How he didn't see me I'll never know, but he's dead now, so that matters not.

Other than that it's okay though.

...well, crocodiles and bull rays aside.

...plus our serial killer seem to have a soft spot for anyone with a British accent.
