We are slightly adjusting local pricing due to changes in currency exchange rates.

Due to recent significant changes in currency conversion rates, we need to re-evaluate and update the local price values for the products on GOG.com. When preparing for the launch of our local currency payment options we've monitored the conversion rates for 18 months, looking at the average, and rounding it to the closest 0.09. That's how we came up with - for example - the 4.49€ equivalent for the $5.99 price-tag (with 4.51€ being the average converted price out of the previous 18 months). With fairness and clarity in mind, we decided to stick to the prices calculated this way, and only update them if a really considerable change in currency exchange rates would occur.

Unfortunately, this happened much sooner than anyone would expect. There are evident changes in the conversion rates for almost all currencies used on GOG.com. Therefore, we are forced to adjust some of the local-currency prices of the GOG.com catalog items.The prices are changing only by a small margin that allows us to compensate for the recent shifts in currency exchange rates. Here's a representative example of the pricing changes:

For $9,99 games:
- the EUR price was: 7,49; is: 7,99
- the GBP price was: 5,99; is: 6,19
- the AUD price was: 10,89; is: 11,49
- the RUB price was: 359; is: 389

The changes will come into effect on Wednesday, October 1 at 12:00PM GMT. We apologize for any inconvenience this change may be causing you. Please remember that you have the option to switch your preferred currency back to USD in the site's footer.

We will continue to monitor the exchange rates and apply further updates. Hopefully, we'll see the rates reverting to their more beneficial state soon, so that the next small price update can be in everyone's favor. We will communicate any future adjustments in the forum thread for this topic, so please follow it if you're interested in the future development for local prices.
We’ve updated exchange rates and the current ones are as follows:

5.99$ = 5.39 EUR = 4.69 GBP = 8.79 AUD = 388 RUB = 22.99 PLN = 57.70 SEK = 54.70 NOK = 40.10 DKK = 5.99 CHF = 7.89 CAD = 24.59 BRL = 42.00 CNY

9.99$ = 8.99 EUR = 7.79 GBP = 14.59 AUD = 639 RUB = 38.39 PLN = 96.30 SEK = 91.30 NOK = 67.00 DKK = 9.89 CHF = 13.09 CAD = 40.99 BRL = 71.00 CNY

14.99$ = 13.49 EUR = 11.59 GBP = 21.89 AUD = 959 RUB = 57.49 PLN = 144.50 SEK = 144.50 NOK = 100.50 DKK = 14.89 CHF = 19.69 CAD = 61.59 BRL = 106.00 CNY

GOG.com: For $9,99 games:
- the RUB price was: 359; is: 389

G-Doc: 5,99$ = 519 RUB
Unless this is an error, it really puts the whole current ruble turmoil in perspective.
Hi!
Any news on brazilian reais?

Thanks!

As I mentioned here, it's an error. Alternatively, GOG might be preemptively guessing that the ruble's conversion rate will fluctuate even more.

I think they took a 40% error margin, at least from what I see.

That would be a very daring margin, especially when they didn't do so during the previous updates. But, I'll wait and see if it was the correct choice in the long run.

Russians still can choose to pay in USD, so I don't think it's that big of a problem. I think GOG is just trying to discourage the use of RUB while it's so unstable.

That would be fine if the default choice for a new user wasn't his local currency...

We require more minerals.

We need more gold.

Dawnreader: We need more gold.
Wasn't it "more gold is required"?

Although recently I feel the urge to say something like "More requisition points are needed".
Seems like the € was updated.

Yes, I was just about to post an update - the price matrix has been updated. I'll let you know the changes in an edit to this comment, just let me copy them properly from the huuuuge spreadsheet :)

[edit]

For $9,99 games:
- the EUR price was: 7.99; is: 8.49
- the GBP price was: 6.39; is: 6.69
- the AUD price was: 11.49; is: 12.29
- the RUB price was: 869; is: 679

Unfortunately, we're not big enough to influence global currency changes yet - but what we will do is update you whenever we do need to tweak our prices in this topic.

Yup. $5,99 = €5,09 now. I remember it was $5,99 = €4,79 a few months ago...

Tannath: Yup. $5,99 = €5,09 now. I remember it was $5,99 = €4,79 a few months ago...
Some minutes ago, actually. :P
At any rate, this was inevitable thanks to the weakening power of the €.
