I'm surprised at the amount of complaining about this. So what if Australia gets the 'better' version, they barely get anything to begin with! Besides, we didn't get an LE for CS and I don't remember NEARLY as much complaining on here and on the front page article about that.
The fact that we are GETTING one should be good enough, not "so and so gets the better one". We could've you know, not have gotten it at all, would that be better?
I'm serious, I have NEVER seen this amount of complaining over actually GETTING a CE... As for the Vita not getting one, in that case yeah that would be a different story. It's just disappointing that LE's are so commonplace now (which is great) that people pick them apart... Buy it, or don't. There's reasons like budget restraints that DO exist.
