Added European Duty on Steam Call of Duty 4 has word that the Steam edition of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare carries a $49.95 price tag in the US and a $69.95 MSRP for European customers (thanks Voodoo Extreme). They contacted Valve to ask about this and learned that these prices are set by the publisher, meaning Activision is responsible for this.

So, Activision is jacking up its game prices to $70 for European customers so that it will still get around 50 euros from them for its games.

If that's the case why are Activision only charging $49.95 in some parts of Europe like Cyprus and Estonia ?

It's price gouging, pure and simple and I can't think of a better way piss off your customer and encourage them to go and download illegal copies instead.
