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.

true, only for regionally-priced games.

as for all the live exchange rates: google for it there are live results (differ a few cents , give or take)
so if one is curious google for it, bookmark the one that fits best and voila , you are up todate all the way, so its not that big an unexpected event, plus i don't watch the dutch news (boring) or debates of our boring government (den haag)
but i heard that it was going just slightly better so a few cents up/down on the prices was only to be expected.

In the past (good old days) when we had guilders, our currency was very stable compared vs the dollar, the euros well they ..... fill in whatever you want.
Back then at school we learned that the government could 'influence' the dollar rates a bit, it had to do (as we were told)

with gold and exchanges something or so.... it was quite complicated but it seemed they were able to "artificially" "play" and mess with something making the dollar stronger or less stronger, getting things balanced again.

Never understood that part, but thats what we were being told , so it seemed that some "manipulating" went on a lot (maybe today aswell i dont know).

just googled and found something that seems to explain what they did when clinton and lateron bush was president

The updates usually occur on Fridays, so we still have some time (assuming that the € doesn't grow strong again in the meantime).

It's a text file, not an image. You need to save the file and rename the extension from jpg to txt.
Unfortunately, it's a trick I use regularly, as GOG does not allow one to upload files with a non-graphic extension.

OK.

We've had to adjust local pricing once again due to exchange rate changes. AUD increased, EUR and GBP decreased


5.99 USD = 5,49 EUR = 8,29 AUD = 3,89 GBP
9.99 USD = 9.09 EUR = 13,79 AUD = 6.49 GBP


The previous prices were:
5.99 USD = 5,49 EUR = 7,89 AUD = 3,99 GBP
9.99 USD = 9,19 EUR= 13,09 AUD = 6,59 GBP

I'll continue updating this thread when currency conversions result in changed local prices once again.

Thanks for the update.
I've lost out by £0.10 then as I bought Terra Nova just the other day at £3.99, and now it is £3.89. Ah well.
Nice more bucks for your money is always nice.
