Briefly: Get Watch Dogs For $54, 42,000 Holden Commodores Recalled, No Netflix In Australia

Brief news items of note for Lifehacker readers, including: Holden recalls 42,000 Commodores over safety concerns, get Watch Dogs on any console format for $54 from Target, Netflix quashes Australian launch rumour.

  • If you own a Commodore you might want to check the model number: Holden is recalling 42,000 cars in relation to a seatbelt issue. This includes all VF and WN models. Click here for the full story.
  • The Australian gaming community was recently outraged by Steam’s decision to increase the local pricing of Watch Dogs from US$59.95 to US$74.95. If you can bear to play the game on consoles, head to Target: the game is currently selling for just $64 on all formats. You can bring the total price down to $54 when you use the promotional code ‘welcome’. [Via OzBargain]
  • Netflix has put the kibosh on the latest Australian availability rumours, confirming that it has no plans to release its streaming service down under — at least, not yet. “We do want to be global, so one day we should be there, but we have no current Australia launch scheduled,” the company explained. Boo.
  • Game Of Thrones isn’t on tonight. To help fill the void, watch Seth Rogen and Snoop Dogg discuss last week’s episode while high on weed. [Warning: swearing ensues, obviously.]
