...with 2 new trailers..

Everyone who watched the machinima Ignis Solus knows that the guys from LitFuseFilms aren't amateur in film making, and since they live in Europe, they know the troubles the Steam group Rest of World is protesting for. The two trailers shows LitFuseFilms's support against the sales strategy of some Steam publishers.

Here's a qoute from the blog of LitFuseFilms:

"A Steam friend of mine talked to me about his steam group which was called Rest of the World. Basically it’s a group in a sort of protest against companies selling their games on Steam exclusively to the US.

Now this is something that greatly appeals to me as I’m sick to death of companies excluding anyone out for anything. We have money, probably more so than Americans do with the steady decline of their economy, we seem to be willing to pay much more than Americans for our games also, so why stop it? Why? Just tell me.. Why? I’ll show the latest video and you can check the first one after the jump.

madlep from ubercharged.net also commented the situation:

"Oh, and one other thing while we’re on the subject mr game publisher: We barely tolerated you ripping us non-US gamers off back when the US dollar was actually worth something, and you had that as an excuse for super high prices outside of the states. Now that the $US is on a par with approximately mud, charging $AU 110 for a new title (that’s $US 100) doesn’t work anymore. This is basic economics. Stop ripping us off."

If you feel the same way as Rest of the World feels, feel free to join theur group.
