You can now pre-order Counter Strike Global Offensive. With this being the the first Valve-release in more than a year, Valve have decided to continue using their stupid tier-system in which they have randomly divided Europe into two tiers + the UK. The game is quite cheap, being a new release and all. This is especially true for the USA and parts of Europe.
If you pre-order, you get 10% off, so the US price is currently $13,49.
In the UK, the price is £10,79, which is 25,35% more expensive.
In EU tier 1, the price is €12,59, which is 16,09% more expensive.
In EU tier 2, the price is €9,89, which is 8,82% cheaper.
This is good news for us Norwegians i guess, but not so for our neighbors Sweden and the UK. What were Valve thinking when they decided to incorporate this system into all their releases?
