The Parliamentary Inquiry into high pricing in the IT sector (including videogames) is finding it hard to get companies to talk.
According to Kotaku, Paul Neville, Deputy Chair of the Inquiry, is considering subpoenas to get local companies to talk more openly about their pricing structures.
In particular, Neville cites the practise of geo-blocking on digital releases 'unacceptable', in spite of its practical use in keeping Australian edited versions of games the only versions available to Aussie consumers.
It certainly seems like the Inquiry will see some heads roll before it's through - it'll certainly be interesting if local games companies are made to reveal more about their internal pricing mechanisms, although whether it'll get to that point is still anyone's guess for now.
