Well on the plus side, if you make people pay international rates to
India, you won't have to handle many support calls ;)

Actually that's an interesting point. How many games have local
points of presence across all territories offering support 24/7 at
local call rates?  I've never called a game support line - sitting
in a queue at international call rates has never appealed.
