Technically, yeah. It's never a straight conversion, but I don't tend to complain unless there's no conversion at all - 9.99 in both dollars and pounds, for example. And even then all you get is a little (grr) from me these days.
But this... this was just bullshit. There is no logical reason for the UK, or indeed Europe, to be charged more
than the US. If there was no conversion, that'd be lazy, but understandable. This required someone to actually convert the price, and they did it badly
Still not sure why I'm so pissed off? Well, if £11.24 converted to dollars is $17.44, then just think of it the other way round. $9.99 converts to... £6.44. Which is almost HALF what we're actually made to pay.
Like I said, bullshit.
And ketzer... Jesus. I didn't realize EA hated Europe so much.
