pando: But this is the beauty of Steam, you can get around the regional pricing by having a US prepaid credit card and a VPN/transparent proxy OR by getting a North American friend to gift you said game.
That's assuming you have access to any of these things. The source of the screwing doesn't change the fact we're still being screwed.
I'll just continuing paying less for physical copies. Nothing in the sale appeals to me that I don't already have (mostly via other non-Steam bundles or old physical-item purchases).
