Apart from that, being able to order games from OS, 3 months prior to Aussie release, with a 50% plus discount on price is awesome.

I think it's just a case of profiteering, because they can. form my understanding, there is no "import" anyway, most games, and DVD's for that matter, are stamped locally. Most new games are now about Aus$110 (US$84). When was the last time any of you guys paid that for 2 games?
As an example, I bought KOTOR II for about $30 US (shipped) and had the game finished about a month befor elocal release.
Hopefully, these people will realise that the world is now a very small place, and they have to compete the world, and we are not a captive market.
