Cost of games

Why do games on xbox live Australia cost twice as much as they  do  in the US? I went onto the xbox.com/us website by accident and tried to buy a game - currently bioshock infinite currently on sale for $10. When I double checked the sale price it was actually $23 for the australian region. 

All other games - sale or no - have similar price discrepancies. Why? There are no distribution costs online and the australian dollar is close to parity with the US dollar. 

Why double the cost?
