According to Yahoo! GBP 4.99 = AUD 12.34, which means you're paying a premium of AUD 1.56 (or 63p)—not a massive difference.
Blast that infernal exchange rate! :twisted:

And, believe me, it could be a lot worse. When I was living in Iceland, a fair number of British magazines were imported and sold in bookshops. Those that cost GBP 5 or 6 ended up costing anything up to GBP 18. Imagine paying nearly AUD 45 for Retro Gamer!

A few peeps over @ the Neo-Geo.com site read RG and pick it up from Barnes & Noble... Now 29 is out here and state side its 28 yeah ?

When it goes 6 monthly I'll mention it on site.

Cost is an issue along with availability...
I sent a few copies over to Shawn (site owner) as they mentioned Neo-Geo.com and he's into collecting that kind of thing.

YEah, it can be found stateside, but still no issue 28 in Barnes & Noble, Border's, or Tower Records so far.
