Don't seem to be able to buy this in Australia - not on the list of allowed countries anyway.

D2D hardly ever has anything for sale to countries other than the states. You would have better luck with Impulse, Steam or GamersGate.

Not impressed at all with those extras. I still prefer a retail edition anyways…
