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

muntdefems: Well, it's "only" bad news for AUD, NOK, CAD and BRL. For the rest of currencies it's quite good news indeed! (and Russians don't care :P)

Sdfghj: In Soviet Russia, currency exchanges you?^^
No, wait, they do care! I only looked at the exchange rates for 5.99 USD, but the Russian prices have become cheap for $9.99 and $14.99 games.

9.99 USD = 8.89 EUR = 7.79 GBP = 13.49 AUD = 569 RUB = 36.99 PLN = 86 SEK = 83.90 NOK = 65.90 DKK = 9.69 CHF = 13.49 CAD = 32.39 BRL = 68 CNY

14.99 USD = 13.29 EUR = 11.69 GBP = 20.19 AUD = 849 RUB = 55.49 PLN = 129.10 SEK = 125.90 NOK = 98.80 DKK = 14.49 CHF = 20.29 CAD = 48.59 BRL = 102 CNY
That was about time! The CHF all the time has been more worth than the US Dollar. Yet the prices in CHF have been higher than the Dollar prices, by so much that it has been cheaper for me to pay in Dollars instead of CHF, even with the additional exchange fees. But now I have filled my Dollar-wallet for nothing, meh. :(
Besides supporting Chinese Yuan (CNY) as currency, GOG meanwhile also supports two additional (Chinese) payment methods: UNIONPAY and TENPAY. (Don't know where else to post this, just in case somebody keeps track of website updates)

Interesting. What prices do you see for Oblivion, Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas and Wonder Boy: Dragon's Trap?

Grargar: Interesting. What prices do you see for Oblivion, Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas and Wonder Boy: Dragon's Trap?
Oblivion: 136 CNY
Fallout 3: 136 CNY
Fallout: New Vegas: 136 CNY
Wonder Boy: Dragon's Trap: 136 CNY

They are all 136 CNY. When I switch to USD, it's 19.99 USD.

So unlike Steam no Russian-style pricing for Chinese customers (yet) :-P

I see. Thanks for the info. They'll probably price-match Steam when they officially announce Yuan support.

Thanks, I copied my post into that thread accordingly.
The exchange rates have been updated again, or at least the USD-EUR rate has changed since earlier today. I'm expecting fables22's full report. :)
Here we go, fables22 reports for duty with a full local price update:

5.99 USD = 5.09 EUR = 4.69 GBP = 7.59 AUD = 359 RUB = 21.69 PLN = 48.30 SEK = 47 NOK = 37.70 DKK = 5.79 CHF = 7.59 CAD = 18.89 BRL = 40 CNY

9.99 USD = 8.49 EUR = 7.89 GBP = 12.69 AUD = 599 RUB = 36.19 PLN = 80.50 SEK = 78.40 NOK = 63 DKK = 9.69 CHF = 12.59 CAD = 31.39 BRL = 67 CNY

14.99 USD = 12.79 EUR = 11.79 GBP = 18.99 AUD = 889 RUB = 54.29 PLN = 120.80 SEK = 117.70 NOK = 94.50 DKK = 14.49 CHF = 18.79 CAD = 47.09 BRL = 100 CNY
Good job! :D

fables22: Here we go, fables22 reports for duty with a full local price update:
i think you missed adapting the dollar prices for CIS countries other than Russia for games where they have a different price than Russia.
for example Age of Wonders 3:
RU price got changed: $8.79 => $8.39
rest-CIS price unchanged: $6.49

This seem to affect all similar cases (well, at least all that I checked, I didn't go through all of them ;) )
same problem with New Zealand(NZ) where its price doesn't match the Australian price
example: Sine Mora EX, Spellforce 3

of course there might be other reasons for this, and I only checked muntdefems report from Monday, so maybe it already got fixed, but I thought it might be worth pointing out ;)

maybe you can look into that, or pass the info to someone who can.
(I know I could open a support ticket, but i'm feeling particularly lazy today :o )

New local price update is here:

5.99 USD = 5.09 EUR = 4.59 GBP = 7.69 AUD = 349 RUB = 21.49 PLN = 48.80 SEK = 47.60 NOK = 37.70 DKK = 5.89 CHF = 7.49 CAD = 18.99 BRL = 40 CNY

9.99 USD = 8.49 EUR = 7.59 GBP = 12.69 AUD = 579 RUB = 35.79 PLN = 81.30 SEK = 79.40 NOK = 62.90 DKK = 9.79 CHF = 12.49 CAD = 31.69 BRL = 66 CNY

14.99 USD = 12.69 EUR = 11.39 GBP = 19.09 AUD = 869 RUB = 53.69 PLN = 122 SEK = 119.10 NOK = 94.40 DKK = 14.69 CHF = 18.69 CAD = 47.59 BRL = 99 CNY
Basically:

· Good news for GBP, RUB, PLN and CAD

· Bad news for AUD, SEK, NOK, CHF and BRL

· More or less indifferent news for EUR, DKK and CNY
GOG, the USD has been steadily devaluating with respect to almost all your other supported currencies since last October. I've checked the current exchange rates, and in average, the USD is 3.5%-4.0% cheaper than what your exchange rates reflect.

Could you please adapt your official exchange rates to the 'economic realities'? And, if possible, without increasing the regional pricing hikes to compensate for that?

Thanks. :)


PS: According to Google, this is what we should be paying right now (sorry, Brazilian fellows! :P):

5.99 USD = 4.81 EUR = 4.23 GBP = 7.54 AUD = 338 RUB = 20.03 PLN = 47.3 SEK = 46.1 NOK = 35.8 DKK = 5.58 CHF = 7.41 CAD = 19.22 BRL = 38 CNY

9.99 USD = 8.03 EUR = 7.06 GBP = 12.57 AUD = 564 RUB = 33.41 PLN = 78.8 SEK = 76.9 NOK = 59.8 DKK = 9.31 CHF = 12.36 CAD = 32.05 BRL = 63 CNY

14.99 USD = 12.05 EUR = 10.59 GBP = 18.86 AUD = 846 RUB = 50.13 PLN = 118.3 SEK = 115.4 NOK = 89.7 DKK = 13.97 CHF = 18.55 CAD = 48.09 BRL = 94 CNY
