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

Maxvorstadt: I don`t understand why the euro does lose value compared to the dollar?!? The USA is nearly bankrupt, every two or three moths the US government raises the credit limit so they don`t have to say officially that they are bankrupt, but in fact they are!
Taken this into account it would be more realistic to say that 1 euro is worth 10 dollars, or even 15!
If I've well understood, it's because Europa, since some months, has an inflationist policy (but they don't want to exceed 2% of inflation) to fight against potential deflation (due to lack of growth). So they inject some euros (= print euros) in the economy, this induce inflation and so depreciate the exchange monetary rate.

But it doesn't mean that what you said isn't true ;)
The dollar is in theory a very week money, but the reality doesn't reflect this at all.

The USD's value is artificially inflated for both internal and international politics reasons. The EUR's is artificially deflated to create that inflation Splatsch mentioned fully against the run of the market. Because, you know, things getting cheaper and people being able to afford more with the same money, including from their existing savings, is a bad thing according to economists.

I corrected your post, but in fact you`re right!
In short, the EU states print money just like that (no gold backup for it or anything), so the value of the money decreases since there is more around.

Holding back to buy stuff because of increasing prices is risky since you don't know if it won't keep losing value. Maybe you are better off owning products than money.

Owning products is expensive if you don't own ground and building (and security measures depending on where it stands).
Another update? I see Grim Fandango costs 13.29$ now, while it was 13.99$ yesterday.

Not for me. It was $13.29 ever since 3 days ago.

MaGog agrees with you, so my bad. Thanks for having your finger on the pulse.

Ciris: 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 :)
As this has been brought up in another thread just now, thought I should mention you have quoted the GBP wrong.

Example:
http://www.gog.com/game/a_golden_wake $14.99 / £9.99

Presume you accidentally put the AUD price.

Might want to fix it before theres some nutter blowing off about it! ;)

Previously:
5.99 USD was 5.39 EUR - 7.69 AUD - 409 RUB
9.99 USD was 8.89 EUR - 12.69 AUD - 679 RUB

Now:
5.99 USD - 5.59 EUR - 7.79 AUD - 389 RUB

Behold the effect of the enlightned EU politics and rejoice!
Don't you *feel* the very meaning of the term "diving" when looking day by day at the exchange rate?

Well, at least now the Nordic Games catalogue can come back without so many excuses. :P
Euro, why do you want to be like the dollar :' (
Euro keeps going up. >_<
