I recently moved from Armenia to Georgia and was extremely surprised to find out that the prices here are about 4 times higher despite the fact the economic situation is about the same. Turns out this is the case for most game stores, except Steam. I really liked getting my games on GOG, but now I just can't afford to keep doing it. Is there a way chance of them taking another look at this?
that is weird, I never noticed that.
GOG has a regional discount for all former soviet republics (and Russia), except Georgia it seems. curious omission.
Maybe they went by the list of member states of the CIS and didn't pay attention to the fact that Georgia withdrew from it after the war in 2008 ?
but there is really not much we can do here in the forum about this.
complain loudly to the GOG support about it. It is definitely something worth pointing out.
If that doesn't help, you can try and make some publisher/developer aware of the problem.
ask GOG and/or the publisher .... because I have no idea
you are totally right: it doesn't make sense
OK, so I've asked. And the answer is quite interesting. Here is exactly what GOG Support says
(including bold print): Hello, all the prices on GOG are decided by the publishers, not us. We can only propose the price tags that we find the most accurate for our users, but then the publisher has to agree or not. For most games, especially older ones, we use our own price matrix,
And here is the answer of one of publishers
[i]We weren't aware of this issue.
The reality is these prices are automated on GOG's system.
I will contact their support right now and see if I can get a response from them.[/i]
as always, it is nobody's fault :/
maybe you can ask GOG support how their "proposed price tags" look for eastern Europe ? And if they think it "accurate" to use the same prices as in western Europe.
