    I somehow didn't see this thread before...

    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.
