I think that is a great idea to get them 8 extra dlc. they been waiting for a long time. I hope a lot Europe users will pick up Rocksmtith. More users means more money that ubi can invest to buy bigger and better dlc.
As one of the people eagerly awaiting this game in EUrope, I'm stoked to see there is a bundle coming AND with a few extra songs. I was still recently debating on waiting for the Euro release or ordering the US version but now I know I can just be patient and get some extra songs. Actually with the euro/dollar conversion, we'll still be paying more for the game and/or bundle but still... its on its way!
It originally retailed for $80usd for the game/cord combo and $200usd for the guitar bundle.
If UBI doesn't know how to do exchange rate and sells 79/199 no matter the currency of the country, I hope they start selling Rocksmith for 79 "reais" and the bundle for 199 "reais" in Brazil. That's gonna be a cheap guitar! Bah, who am I kidding... they just pretend they don't know how to convert currency when it is their advantage (like applying US$ price amounts in Euros). With the DLC.they do a very advantageous (for them) currency conversion: each song is 2.99 in the Sates, but 6.5 "reais" or about ÜS$3.30.
It's not that they don't know how to convert the currency; it's just the way things work in general given the disparity of taxes and import duties. Having lived in the Eurozone for the last decade, I've found a lot of things priced the same except for the currency conversion. Chalk it up to 20% VAT in a lot of places. I doubt the same works in countries with lower-valued currency.
