Age of Empires Online Unfair Pricing.

Hi,

Since I have purchased the game in 2011 I paid £14.99,

Today I thought, hey, I’ll get the add-ons... So I looked on the marketplace...

Skirmish Booster Pack £3.25

Celtic Defense £6.75

Premium Greek Civilization Pack (Already got) Paid £14.99 for it!, its now £6.75 (anyway)...

Defense of Crete Booster Pack £3.25

Premium Celt Civilization £6.75

Premium Egyptian Civilization Pack £6.49

Pro Persian Civilization £6.75

Gulp, £36.24 wow just in add-ons.... plus the £14.99 I paid for the game, totals £51.23...

So I head to the official site http://ageofempiresonline.com/en/... Bang centre of the page...

All in wonder bundle.. what’s that? A Microsoft game takes you to a steam page...

Anyway http://store.steampowered.com/sub/13943/ 
Full game all add-ons £24.99...

So Wait .... I can go buy the full game again and all the add-ons for less than the price of just the add-ons.

Is this just me or is this unfair?

Regards

Mike

Prices are set based on the RRP and the prices agreed on by the developers and Microsoft. Steam is a generally cheap store therefore you will find stuff a lot cheaper.

Although, I do agree the price difference is significant, they are the agreed prices, Steam are just selling them a lot cheaper.

This is no different than just about any other business.

If you go to a restaurant and order items a la carte (individually), it will cost you more (sometimes much more) than it will if you order a meal or combo.
