Borderlands 2 on XBL Marketplace

I'm just wanting to know why Borderlands 2 is £12.49 to download from the XBL Marketplace here in England but it is only $7.49 for our American friends. An ambassador gave me the answer "VAT 20%, bye" but that just doesn't add up as $7.49 converts to £4.61

I saw this question come up in the feed, but someone else took it before me.

The answer was the time you were making the purchase. It was past midnight here, so the sales price had already reverted to its normal price.

I personally saw the game listed at about £4.25 or £4.50, or something similar, during the day.

Even though it was still Tuesday in the United States, we were already into Wednesday so the offer had ended, it seemed. The price now is still £12.49.

I hope that clarified that, sorry for the poor experience with the other Ambassador in the chat.
