Well, That’s New

I just received the email notification for the renewal of my Elder Scrolls Online subscription. Actually interesting that they sent an email, most of the sub based games I’ve played just silently renew. But what is really new to me is that the charge is in Aussie Dollars.

Normally, Australian gamers have to pay in US dollars, and then the exchange rate kicks in. A 15USD charge ends up being closer to 20AUD. It feels quite fresh to have 15 dollars mean 15 dollars, and saves having to worry about exchange rates.
