why are GREE/Apple now advertising everything for sale in USD
As a player in the UK I'm not purchasing while I don't know exactly what it will cost me. We have players from all over Europe angry about this change. A guild friend in Norway is very angry about been short changed having to purchase in USD.
Why is this happening are you planning to pull the plug on Europe?

While I can't speak for Grees intentions, considering the pound is valued at $1.50 or so to the dollar you should be coming out ahead. Unless there is an exchange fee charged.

everything you can buy shows as dollars but you pay your native currency.

So actually the price is false advertising to what you are actually paying. But let's be honest, GREE never cared much about false advertising :)

I have asked for clarification, apologies for any confusion. So that I understand, could someone explain step by step what they see? thank you.

Sorry, this one is pretty complex:

1. The prices in game are shown as the U.S. amount, e.g. $99
1a. Said prices are not shown with a currency denomination, so for all the countries that use the $ sign, this is the price we expect to pay. Sorry for $ challenged people.
2. The prices we are charged, unless you live in the U.S. are different, e.g. $130AUD odd if you live in Australia.

Some would call this fraudulent. I wonder what Apple will say about this.
