    If I recall correctly the release date is worldwide as well, which is pretty cool. If that is the case they should be commended for that as well.

    You wouldn't think so but.. price gouging is a severe problem, hopefully this is evidence the discrimination is receding:

    www.aph.gov.au/parliamentary_busine..._committees?url=ic/itpricing/report/front.pdf

    "Australian consumers and businesses, however, must often pay much more for their IT products than their counterparts in comparable economies. In many cases Australians pay 50 to 100 per cent more for the same product."

    Kick the politicians out of their current chairs and enact the laws that Australians want to stop the gouging?

    Hmm... There's much less difference in price for CIS countries now. It's 1200 rubles, which is about $33. Quite expensive for a Steam game...

    Well, I had paid a little below 30USD for my preorder, though it seems I'll have to switch to the digital release in order to get pre-order goodies.

    Moderator Action: We are talking about CivBE, not what is going on in Russia or anywhere else in the world. This is not the place for it and the comment above was about the game's availability, nothing else.

    Well fair pricing would be if for the europeans CivBE would cost about 38€ but we pay 50€ as well which is worth about 66$.....

    So its always a problem to find fairly priced Euro-Shops or buy the game not via steam...

    Well, it seems Firaxis/2K gives us South Americans a hidden discount sometimes. They did for XCOM:EU and Civ5 stuff, but apparently it's not there for the Beyond Earth preorder. That's still $49.99 USD.

    I'm glad I could get it from Green Man Gaming for $37.50 USD thanks to a voucher, though.

    The Pre-Order here in Brazil is actually cheaper (on Steam), R$99, which converts to U$43 or 33 euros.

    Games tend to priced very well in the UK, but computer hardware on the other hand is heavily price gauged and we get ripped off a lot.

    Nope, 2kgames just screwed us over & increased the price by 80% from $50 to $90.

    Hate those bastards so much

    I pre-ordered the game for $49.99 AUD on Steam the other day, and now it is listed as $89.99 AUD. Did I received a discount, or shall I need to fork out more?

    In my experience, you pay the price listed when you made the purchase. If the price changes later, Steam won't reimburse you nor ask for more.
