ok, some of us have been monitoring the pricing of games on steam and quite frankly it hurts...

take for instance the valve complete pack.....

Swat in Ireland has a price of about £80 where as the UK price and even northern ireland would give him a price of £53.

Now how is that acceptable?

This all came out in a discussion over left4Dead2.

If anyone else has some great examples then let us know but be aware when purchasing on steam that cheaper options may apply......

I would hate to suggest for instance that the correct donations to mad laps could gift you a game but I would always consult the community before a purchase.........
