I think this is a necessary evil, so that we are able to get "big titles" DRM free. Can't have everything.

Regional Pricing is very much needed but not like steam, I want regional pricing for all 196 countries not a couple of countries like steam. Steam didn't give regional pricing in India (2nd most populated country in the world) where Indian Rupee is par with Rubles and Russians get regional pricing how it is justifiable???

Regional pricing is very important for me and i believe many more Turkish gamers. I purchased games almost equally when Turkey pricing (dollar) was same at steam and gog. But 7 months ago Steam changed this to Turkish lira and regional pricing. After that unfortunately i didnt bought any game from gog even its on discount.

There are really some selfish people commenting here. I guess these people come from wealthy countries or families eh? Lucky you. Don't forget that the cost of 1 meal in your country may be equivalent to the cost of 5 meals in another country.
Regional pricing is way fairer than standard pricing. Now GOG may still have some unfair pricing for certain region like NZ compare to AUS according to some comments, but this is probably something they can look into and change. But I do not agree with the idea of totally banning regional pricing, because I think it is a good pricing model catering to the affordability of the consumers if done properly.
Steam did it right, when they introduced my country's currency which made the games more affordable, I bought way more games than I ever did.

@Podestabr: I don't have any issue with them charging LESS for their games in certain countries. But charging MORE, with the excuse of the fraud change 1$=1€, even while repaying the difference in store credit, means to condone a criminal behaviour from the game companies that is all but fair.

I don't agree completely with this, as long as they keep doing this the right way, as in, everybody have the option to pay the 'default' price in dollars, instead of being restricted to the price they are given.

But people have to understand that not the whole world live under the same conditions. How many copies can you expect if you charge 30% of the minimum wage for a single game? Emerging and poor countries do not have the same amount of money as people of the developed world. If they want to curb piracy and increase market share, that is a move that must be taken, especially because those countries tend to have a low amount of dollars, which leads to governments restricting and heavily taxing purchases on dollar.

If GOG have any intention of increasing it's user base, it should instead increase the amount of currencies and regional prices it support, otherwise, more and more people will enter the 'gaming' world through steam, and taking back those users later on is a much more difficult task.

Infested Planet, Kerbal Space Program...go on, GOG, go on. I wonder where the "we will still try to get non-regionally priced games if we can" went. Well, if the majority of the users is cool with it, good for them, i guess. I won't condone this betrayal of their founding principle by buying any of those games.

Titan Souls, Not a Hero, Transistor...i see how much GOG care about 7235 people voting for them going in another direction. Well, i'll keep NOT buying them and being vocal about that. If they keep doing that, i guess more and more companies will insist to have their games regionally priced. If all of the other companies do it, why not have the same treatment? Well, your loss, GOG, because i won't buy any of those games.

I just saw the big price difference for the witcher 3. I always thought they said that they wouldn't be able to ban the regional pricing because the publisher wanted to have it and they rather have more games. Seeing that the Witcher 3+Expansion Pack is priced 30 US-Dollars in Ukraine and 96 US-Dollars in Australia, I really feel kinda ripped of. Especially because in New Zealand you still have to pay the aussi price. I mean seriously, 300% more, no way.

"Stick with your principles" has been fulfilled by adding the FPP (-> Completed); but Ban all regional pricing will probably never be fulfilled! (-> Labeling it as completed would be absurd)
So yep, "in progress"is very suiting!

Right in this second 10$= 9,1823€
And guess what price a 10$ game now got in EU? 9,19€!
And guess how much cashback you get when buying a FairPricePackaged game that costs 10€?

Fair regional pricing? Maybe you had that for 3-5 months last year. Now you sell The Witcher EE for 9.99 USD and 9.29 EUR. Without even mentioning the increase in price for the title I'll just address that the EU price goes way beyond VAT. This is a scam.

When viewing the particular outsole of asics working or coaching sneakers, that they have the symptoms of many sq as well as sq portions. Slices over the only, likewise known as siping or maybe deform grooves, generate that visual appeal. The actual power company associated with grooves permits every <a href="http://www.onitsukatigersca.com/">asics</a> single little a part of the particular outsole to easily flex inside several directions, allowing this asics sneakers to support feet.

Higher-corrasion arctic is actually given to your outsole inside strategical places like the back heel or maybe nearby the the front in which runners usually drive away. This helps the <a href="http://www.onitsukatigersca.com/hot-asics-gelkayano-17-men-c-259.html">asics sneakers canada</a> actual outsole keep going longer in addition to gnaw at with an increase of reliability. Various other variants from the asics, for example the Free Hyperfeel, have got excessive-attrition silicone used on just what asics means while pistons. Flip the boot all over, and you'll see the pistons set up in the style that may be created to offer a even, receptive feel in the course of just about every stride.

The asics fillet of sole has been followed by many uppers. Meant to provide the foot's move, the end has been to scale back excess weight and look after breathability along with mobility. Regular meshing uppers together with supportive overlays stay atop most of the asics feet, and some function Flyknit, a lightweight, adaptable upper pattern.

There is nothing fair in regional pricing, at least in Europe. For example we in Slovenia have minimum wage ~700€/month, and in Luxemburg they have ~2000€/month. But games are priced the same in both countries!
It is interesting to watch a small fan oriented company turn into big business.

It is cynical somehow. This is still marked as 'In progress' but the actual 'progress' is in the other direction. Not only are more and more regionally priced games added to the catalogue, now GOG even went one step further and added region locking, which is worse than regional pricing.

Whilst store credit is a small something, rather than the nothing you get from other storefronts I agree with other posters that this shouldn't be a thing in the first place.

If the money comes out of their pocket for store credit, go one step further and take that regional price hit rather than enforced purchase of extra credit. Don't get me wrong, it's better than others, Steam etc will happily screw you over on the pricing and think nothing of it. But it's blurring the lines and I can understand that external publishers put the pressure on but considering Witcher 3 has regional pricing - from the same people that own GOG? It doesn't match up, if it was truly other publishers forcing the issue then Witcher 3 wouldn't have store credit, it would be the same price for all.

I's really saddening that GOG forgot what they once promises and submits to the will of greedy publishers or whoever came up wit the great idea that some regions have to pay a 30% to 100% extra for inexplicable reasons. Just like the Humble Store, just like every good thing being ruined by greed in the end.
And yes, you get back some store credit (which is not nearly the extra you're charged first) in the outrageous cases, but you're even cheated on that. For months, the credit advertised for Witcher 3 was not nearly the credit you actually got.
I would have bought Divinty Original Sin and I would have pre-ordered Witcher 3 if I didn't feel cheated by this nasty price policy. And I hate being cheated.

Taxes are just a lame excuse. Right at the moment that excuse works, because currency conversion by chance is somewhere near the EU Vat rates (but I often still have to pay more than US price + VAT). Just some months ago 1$ = 1€ meant that Europeans (even many who don't even have the Euro as their currency) had to pay 40% more than people from the USA. What does that have to do with VAT? And what about Russia? They are by far not the poorest country in the world and as far as I know they have 18% VAT too. Why do they get such ridiculous low prices? Because it has nothing to do with taxes, but with piracy rates and with greed by publishers and developers.

And of course the income isn't comparable in every region (but it also isn't the same within a country), but living costs are very different as well. So just looking at the average income doesn't make much sense.

Greed? Why exactly are people calling this greed? That's completely ridiculous.
GOG even gives credit if you end up paying more than the US price and that actually means they lose money.
Not every region has comparable income (so one could expect games to be cheaper in South America or Eastern Europe for example).

And once and for all, try to learn why games in Europe are generally more expensive, there's 2 main reasons and none of them is greed:
1 - Taxes. Sales taxes for games and other entertainment products is generally higher in Europe compared to the US.
2 - The taxes ARE INCLUDED in the price. Sales taxes in the EU and US have a major difference: In the EU you pay only the price of the product and the tax is later taken out through the seller. I the US you pay the tax as an extra, so the price in dollars you see is usually not all you will pay, and the final bill will be higher.

Well, if GOG's unfortunate submission to greed riles you up enough, just do like me: wait for the big sales. Such as the current Autumn sale, up to 90% discount (supposedly, anyhow; I've seen up to 80%, personally). Of course, all games in the sale seem to be at 50% off, until they are featured on the top of the front page, when their discount raises to a varying % for a few / several hours. I've nabbed some oldies, myself, as well as the original M&B that they're ironically offering (ironic considering the second-last comment posted here) and have been getting the "stamps" for the Witcher 2 give-away. I've played it to death and don't intend to replay in the foreseeable future... but it's almost no effort, and in that case I'd certainly rather have and not want, than want and not have. Elsewise, I'm very selective and would rather not even have the free games that were automatically put in my library upon account creation, with one exception: good old Beneath A Steel Sky. Now that's a welcoming gift!

Anyhow, TL;DR: wait for the sales. You can still nab some classics, plus others, at special prices, still DRM-free, whilst putting the hurt on GOG at the same time by killing their regular sales a bit.

@Robo4900: the downside -- and its a blatant one -- is their revoking one of their principles as well as their promise never to do so, after having stated that GOG would go under the day it went back on its commitments. They even made a neat sketch satirizing regional pricing, denouncing it as a rip-off and how they'll have nout to do with it.
They claim to partially submit to this practice so as to make more good games available to us; in other words, they claim they do it for the gamers. The truth is obvious and logical: they do it for the money. They made each of those initial commitments FOR us, now they're breaking one of them FOR us as well? Nothing's changed, except they've grown and would rather keep growing and making more and more sales than to hold onto every commitment. And here's the kicker: those games they've sunk to regional pricing to put on sale at GOG, if you want them, just buy 'em elsewhere! Online, retail, Steam or another digital distributor with no software platform, whatever. It's not gonna be the hard-to-find oldies, which is supposedly what they started this whole business for to begin with, hence the name Good Old Games. They should've aimed at being a tad more restrained and selective, rather than ever more so putting games up that have little or nothing to do with Good or Old. Especially not at the cost of their commitments, which got them where they are. The whole service is still very neat and professional, but it's one commitment now, which will it be next? If you give in to greed once, odds are you'll do it again. May take a long while, but it'll happen. I genuinely wish it won't, but I expect it will.

Furthermore, regional pricing is indeed a rip-off! It's a digital distribution of software, how are fees and taxes justifiable, beyond the inevitable VAT? There are no shipping costs or tariffs or any such thing applied to a non-physical distribution of non-physical goods. We're being charged more for living in countries of supposedly higher average income! If you think that is fair, then do ponder on the advantage of actually having a higher income when it's made sure you pay more for the same. Oh no, this is blatantly unfair and, truly, a rip-off, if ever there was one.

GOG folks... you could still undo this. Make it right again.

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....

It's very disingenuous to mark this as "in progress" when it's nothing of the sort.

Unless they really are in the middle of a U-turn, which seems pretty unlikely.

Why does it say it is in progress? To me it seems the opposite.

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.
