I hope you realize that Microsoft doesn't tell Amazon how much they "have" to sell the cards at. This is a promotion that Amazon is doing, so stop complaining.

American games sell in WHOLESALE for cheaper, as they always have done.
Its a scum way of making more money, outside USA-tax.

PC World do a 12 Month subscription for £34.24 if you reserve and collect it. It's the cheapest at a reliable place I've seen it.
