    Don't suppose those who bought it from them last week will be getting a refund of the difference?

    I was looking into buying it, one of those bank-holiday impulses, but when I realised US buyers were getting the whole lot for around £80, I couldn't justify it.

    Aren't you entitled to that? Maybe it's just an Amazon thing.

    In the US, Rock Band retails as low as $149.99, that's just £75.
    Remember they add tax afterwards, based on the state.

    But yeah, Harmonix can go take a flying leap.

    Re: Headlines - Retailers take action, Rock Band price slashed

    There's no way I will buy this game based on a) the overprice, and b) the artificial delay of the PS3 version despite it being readily available in the states. I guess being region free it's possible to just import it cheap for the PS3 but that's not the point. Anyway, Guitar Hero all the way...
