why is regional pricing such a big deal in digital distribution? everything is regionally priced. always has been. always will be. what makes digital games so special that you think they shouldn't be?
Frankly, it's cringeworthy, and not really of the good kind, and the constant jabs at competition sound a lot like a fly buzzing around a cow feeling very smug. So, yeah.
this is kinda true. the commercials are funny, and they do have a point, but i really think the constant jabs at other digital distributors are unnecessary, especially considering that they have a far greater market share than GoG does. you can campaign against DRM all you want but at the end of the day it's Gabe Newell who laughs all the way to the bank... that tells you that out there in the real world, DRM isn't nearly as critical a topic as GoG and some of the members here make it out to be.
Gabe Newell laughs because Steam was one of the first digitall sellers. DRM is quite a critical topic especially now days with market so big and so many digital distributors out there.
I can show you right away 2 games with DRM that needs crack just to play them... and yes they are sold on Steam as working titles :D
To be honest I do prefer GOG because they are politer than Steam support/stuff and they have showned so fat that they care about their custommers.
About regional pricing YES I have problem with that. US/Russia/Ukraine/Brazil have better prices than me and I pay more for my games and to be honest my wallet is thinner than an average American/Russian/Brazilian. So yes regional pricing suck bigtime.
A normal AAA title in Russia is 30$ for me is 50 euros you see the difference? A normal paycheck in Russia is 200 euro ...here too ;)
And I forgot one thing Valve should put it in their heads that 1$ is not equal to 1 euro FFS
