Money, dear boy.

It's necessary to enforce price discrimination.

I don't support it, but it's just how the business works.

but that doesn't make any sense at all I have relatives that lives in both Korea and Japan and when I import games I just send them the money (btw shipping cost **** ton >_>) to buy it at store = price paid.

They're afraid that if our Legions combine we could overthrow them and claim their throne for ourselves.

AU games can import US games, and pay up to 50% less than buying in stores, and often get it earlier than release in AU.

..so ...yeah.

Shipping can be anywhere between $5-$20, depending if you go standard or courier.
I think Play-Asia has one for 50c, the bare minimum.
