I really hate the way GOG is going here. It is plain unfair because digital distribution costs the same for everybody so everybody should pay the same. I could simply use VPN and change my country in the settings so I would pay less - you consider that fair? Or would GOG ban my account like STEAM would? It is hard to believe that GOG would handle like STEAM would but they are on their way with this....

Let's do some math. In Russian Federation Witcher III title costs 699 RUB, but current exchange rate is 37 RUB per USD what means title must be priced as 2280 RUB. In fact it is hardly possible because of STEAM price of title (699 RUB). In such situation, a fair price (in the sense of taking into account the current exchange rate) is unlikely to be an advantage. Of course, DRM Free is real advantage but i don't think it is worth of triple price.

Yes that is the so called regional pricing effect that, we that were and still are for former gogs fair pricing policy, were afraid off. This is normal for regional pricing. Since you live in a country with a supposedly higher standard of living you will have to pay a lot more then somebody in Poland. But since regional pricing is unfair some of that live in poor countries will have to pay more and that's unfornately the effect of regional pricing. The only countrys that profit from that are Poland, Russia and a few other Eastern European countries, everybody else in EU cause of supposedly higher standard of living is being ripped off.

I am far more inclined to buy games when they are cheaper. It's unfair to expect more just because a country seems wealthier. Not everyone in that country is wealthy and things can cost more to buy locally. If prices go up I would be far more selective about which games I buy and therefore would spend far less on games available on GOG.com. I love GOG.com because prices are very reasonable so I hope you will avoid regional pricing.

Regional pricing is far from being fair! You can live on a "rich country". but if you are part of the majority of the population you are going to have a 0 hour contract or a below minimum wage! Any game over £5 is unaffordable by me, so I switched to ONLY buy from offers now... Or just download on abandonware pages for what I care.

Effect of regional pricing in every digital store besides gog.com for European customers is this - minimum 25% increase in price in regard to the base price in USD for no reason. Not to forget Australia who in several cases has to pay extortion prices for games. Regional pricing won't increase the number of games on gog - that is a fact. We will get more games only if gog changes its quality standards. Several good selling games from other digital stores have been offered to gog and declined by it for no apparent reason - gog stated to developers that they don't think the game will sell good on gog when it sells excellent on other platforms - what an oxymoron. That's the response I got from several developers when aksing why isn't their game released here. So I don't think regional pricing is good since it does not quarantee that a game will come here. And its obvious that it does not work in gog's case after regional pricing implementation since there aren't any more games coming to gog besides indies and few games from smaller publishers.

Another Australian weighing in. I hate regional pricing. If you think it is a good thing, you obviously live in one of the countries that gets stuff cheap. Your $5 purchase is $10 to us. Why? "Because we said so."
Regional pricing hurts a lot of people. The ones who are 'helped' by it get that at the expense of those being hurt.
"Oh, but it means more games on GOG" - yes, for those of you getting the lower prices. What do I care if GOG adds 50 new games, but I know that I will be paying 50-100% more for them? Pretty simple: I'll wait for them to go on sale, if I buy them at all. Doesn't help GOG, does it?

Regional pricing in general means that Americans pay less and Europeans pay more. What's more it's not 10% more it's usually more then 30% more something that is absolutely outrageous for a digital good.

Is regional pricing is allowed the next step will be to verify that the purchase is made from the correct region. After that the next step is to make sure the game isn't played in the wrong region.

Basically for regional pricing to work you have to start creeping towards a DRM model step by step.

One more comment... Regional Pricing allows Gog to put through more transactions, which means that Gog becomes bigger and more games will come to Gog. I think that this is a win-win-win for everyone.

Regional Pricing helps Gog by helping poor people. When Gog is helped, more games come to Gog, and thus the rich gamers have more selection on Gog.

Regional pricing isn't about you paying more because of where you live, but instead, someone (maybe you) paying less because of where you live.

In the absence of regional pricing, Gog will pursue the maximal profit strategy, which is to price the games as high as people are willing to pay for them. If there's a large market of consumers willing to pay a lot of money, then the smaller markets of poorer consumers just never play any games.

I am personally very in favor of regional pricing, even though I live in the United States, one of the richer regions.

Here's the thing:
imagine they hadn't added any game with regional pricing.
If that were the case this wish would not exist - but the games wouldn't be available on GoG either.
I believe anyone would agree that this would be a worse situation.

I hope we can trust GoG that they do their best to ban regional pricing but IMHO the notion of banning ALL regional pricing is not reasonable because
there may not be another way to get some games to GoG.

The question it comes down to is: Do you trust GoG to only add regional pricing when there is no other way?

While for me every game on gog is cheaper than on, say, steam (often less than half the price) I personally couldn't care less if regional pricing was introduced. In my opinion regional pricing may even have many benefits depending on your motivation.

I am more concerned about non-regional pricing limiting the amount of games here.
What I find unacceptable is forcing regional versions of games on people, making games unavailable for some and DRM.

Regional pricing is unacceptable as paying more for ice cream only because you're not from their town! Just say NO to regional pricing!

Keep it in single currency, people will use their calculators. Choose no game over regional price!

Nobody profits from regional pricing except the publisher. Either GoG would lose on this, people will just refuse to pay for that game or choose to leave GoG entirely! Regional pricing is just bad as DRM is. Refusing regional pricing means competitive advantage.

I live in New Zealand and I have no problem with regional pricing. I feel GOG has always been focused on offering the best deal, and support, for their customers.

I have brought over 750 games on GOG (most of which have been specials with awesome discounts). i have also brought the Witcher III Wild Hunt pre-order and was impressed at the pricing offered when compared to the Brick and Mortar or online shops here in NZ.

Considering the support I have had with the games I have purchased (fast, efficient and free) and knowing what is involved in running an on-line business I feel GOG are doing a fantastic job, and being able to buy games DRM free, even with regional pricing is real bonus!!!

OBVIOUSLY the people here defending or not caring about regional pricing have never suffered paying 20-50% more in each game just for a few more or less hops in the Internet nodes while downloading, they are probably from USA and they don't care at all because they have always had and will have the best prices due to dollar being the military-imposed international currency

Well guess what, digital sales allow publishers to save a lot of money in distribution, but it also makes every customer in the world the same, they have to stop those monopolistic practices of $1=1€, AUD being +50%, etc...

This is the main reason I left Steam and the other digital retailers, I think GOG is/was the only with international fair prices, but if you become just another digital scammer, you will start to lose non-USA customers

Would have downvoted this if it was possible.

No regional pricing discourages publishers from releasing games in the regions where there are low incomes-high taxes and whatnot.

Would have rather paid more but get a DRM-free game with a bunch of goodies than not get such a game at all, right?

I dislike any concept of regional pricing or availability. It's a revolting irony of what some claim is a capitalistic free market. However as a died in the wool skinflint I don't buy anything unless it's on special offer. And the special offers from GOG are generally very good.

Doesn't everyone else do much the same ?
