Yeah it was given the price on the store at the moment for the edition I have.  I paid about $35/40 NZD for the game!  I had been planning on waiting for some sale as the price is far too much in my opinion, but MS appear to want to charge the same no matter the platform as they need to recoup the costs for the console which they generally do through higher game prices.

Why a US one, mine is a NZ based one, and all i do to buy games is jump onto Amazon buy xbox live gift card, then VPN into US and log into my account, apply xbox live gift card and then buy the game from store while on VPN.
