Note: Up till now, the prices have been of the New Zealand Steam Store. Now, with the exception of day 13, the following prices are of the Australian Steam Store. (I was busy with New Years shenanigans, and wasn't able to list the relevant days' deals from the original data on the NZ Steam Store, so I reconstructed the listing afterwards with the closest available info [the AU Steam Store]. I couldn't find any NZ listings anywhere on the net)

While these listings aren't as relevant for people outside of AU/NZ, you can use them to see how much we get screwed here down under (NZ more so than AU). One example would be the Assassin's Creed Pack: As listed in Day 10, the NZ USD Holiday Sale price was $99.99. As shown in the listing for the Encore Day, where many deals were reissued, the AU USD Holiday Sale Price was $79.99. In the US, the same Pack had a Holiday Sale price of $59.99. (with the same discrepancies being reflected in the individual games' prices, and many other games such as Arkham city, Modern Warfare 3, and Skyrim).
The RRP's for the Assassin's Creed Pack were $234.96, $173.89, and $129.96 for NZ, Aus, and the US respectively.

I can't really think of any legitimate reason for the vast price differences. I mean, its not like there's any shipping/import costs (its a digital download), or localization that needs to be done (NZ, Aus, and US are all English speaking countries). I must be missing something, because it doesn't really make any sense...
