It sucks in Australia. I'm from Canada and it's cheaper for my family to send me stuff.

1000 what? Monopoly monies?

I guess you would have to look at your local laws. Are there any tariffs applied to imported goods? Are you a great distance, geographically, from where these goods are produced that would result in higher costs of shipping to your location? Are there excessive taxes levied by your government that would cause these high prices? There are a great number of economic factors that could be at play.

Why buy a PS3 for 1000 when you could have a PS4 for 400?

because PS4 is so unfairly cheap.

@VaguelyTagged: Why is that a reason not to buy it?

1000 rupees for a PS3 game TC? That's like $16 a game. That is a fantastic price. And TC you didn't mention the currency. Type carefully.

Man, it would be so nice if brand new games were $16 in the US. As a 21 year old college student busing tables part time for $7.25/hour + tips, $60 is a lot of damn money to me.
