Harvey Norman launches Direct Import, allowing Aussies access to cheaper game prices
It’s something we Aussies have learned to live with – paying huge mark ups on the prices of video games simply because we live in Australia. However, the days of paying one third to one half more for games may now be a thing of the past, with Gerry Harvey announcing Harvey Norman’s new Direct Import. Direct Import will allow gamers to import their games from Europe in an effort to reduce the prices we currently pay, and put them on par with international prices.
Said Ben Mackintosh, spokesperson for Harvey Norman:
“Harvey Norman is very pleased to announce, from 6pm tonight, Harvey Norman will be utilising its global network, selling games direct to the consumers at fantastic global prices GST free. Consumers will be directly importing from Europe at the best prices available.”
The site is now live and able to be viewed at Harvey Norman Direct Import. There’s already some fantastic savings on display, with Deus Ex: Human Revolution for the Xbox360 for $26 and Assassin’s Creed: Revelations for the PS3 for $55.
This is definitely a very big announcement in the Aussie games scene, and we’ll be keeping an eye out for any updates.
