Paying too much for PC Games in Oz?
January 24, 2006
Alienware in the US has launched a site to purchase full PC games that can be downloaded direct from their site.
The service uses an Alienware download manager to pull down the multiple Gigabyte downloads, so broadband subscribers need only apply.
For Australian purchasers this is a bonus as the price is just over 15% cheaper than local retail.
The games are obviously changed slightly to accommodate the Digital Rights Management, as the EULA states the user should not update the games from any other source other than their download site.
It would be interesting to see how long, if at all, before the local Alienware site would do this.
I for one will be looking at this site first before purchasing the next PC game.
