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.

I can be wrong. Ciris will tell us.
The prices have gone up indeed Grim Fandango before cca. 11.83€ now 12.79€

Well no full price buys for me at this point.

Unfortunately I don't have access to previous changes :/ I'll try to ask around and see if someone does/remembers! :)

I might be confusing it with the 50% off price: €2,89.

Ciris: 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

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.
No problem. The Euro lost a lot of it's value within the last few months, so it had to happen. With the current exchange rate, I'll have to pay $10.01 for a $9.99 game now, which is more or less accurate (and still some cents less than I'd have to pay when I would use Dollars for payment)

Actually if that pricing scheme is correct your price will be 10.61€ then not 10.01€.

Am I doing it wrong?

8.49 (Euro price) x 1.179 (exchange rate) = 10.01 (End price in Dollar)

Sorry. I thought that the old game price was 9.99€ and you were saying that it increased to 10.01€. Did not read Ciris post. My bad.

What I calculated is that if the base price was 9.99€ then your new price is 10.61€.

The price increased by 6.25% cause of the currency difference.

I guess you can be happy that you still have forints :) It was our greatest mistake to change tolars for euro since then all the prices increased between 100-150%.

Hát igen, a forint ritkán volt ilyen szar.

The European Union needs to decide, what it wants.

Yeah, I know, they are always pointing their fingers toward Greece, Spain, than Portugal, the Ukrainian crysi, problems with Russia etc. ... but, the true is, well, much more complex or simpler, that is, from what perspective you look at things.
The price matrix has once again been updated. Here are the new prices for the most frequent price tags on our stuff (GBP and RUB didn't change, I gave you the prices anyway for detail’s sake):

For $5,99 games:

EUR: 5.09 —> 5.39
AUD: 7.39 —> 7.69

GBP still is 3.99
RUB still is 409.00

For $9.99 games:

EUR: was 8.49 —> 8.89
AUD: was 12.29 —> 12.69

GBP still is 6.69
RUB still is 679.00

For $14.99 games:

EUR: was 12.79 —> 13.39
AUD: was 18.39 —> 19.09

GBP still is 19.09
RUB still is 1019.00

[edit] Let me know if this is a clearer information than what I posted last time and I'll try to keep a uniformly legible formatting for each future change as well :)
