    Steam does that too – I pay the same in euros that USAians pay in dollars. Working in dollars regardless of your location is one of the reasons why I like the Humble Bundle so much.

    Even though its using essentially off the shelf PC parts (IIRC), which by the way worked out so well for the original Xbox, didnt it? They are probably loosing quite a bit on each one sold. Which is probably another reason for this DRM.
