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

Why did they even bother with this? I was happy just seeing things in USD..

sunshinecorp: I meant 50 dollars. It's 50 dollars if you switch currency. And it shouldn't be. It 39.99 dollars. With regional pricing, it becomes 50 for us.

Grargar: It was actually more expensive before in $ for Europeans ($55).
It wasn't released BEFORE regional pricing policy, when we would just buy it for 39.99 dollars. Simple as that. Not 50, not 55. 40 dollars. Now it's 40 euros. Regional pricing. It's not that hard to get. :)

Actually it did. It, along Witcher 3 and Age of Wonders 3, were the first games to implement regional pricing, before the site's redesign. Original Sin never had a $40 price for Europeans; only $55 and now $50+.

Actually that is not true some european countries do have the 39.99$. The base game without dlc that is.

Maybe, I was mostly referring to the Eurozone countries.

Also eurozone countries.

Source? At any rate, barring some strange glitch, Greece specifically never had a $40 price for Original Sin, not even when it was originally released (9 July).

That. Is. Exactly. What. I. Am. Saying.

*sigh*
Why not do live conversion?

$9,99 is 7,99EUR ?
Not if I look up google, it says the conversion rate is 0.79 which would be 7.89EUR now.
From what day is your exchange rate?

My price is 39.99$ and our currency is euro. Just pointing out that its not valid for everybody in this case. Other games are different for me. Some are regionally priced and some are not.

OK, but the way you were saying it implied that the games got more expensive now.

I see.

Here is a stupid question.
Instead of increasing the price of the euro areas, why don't you decrease the price of the $?

:p

Because they DID. If GOG enforced its previous fair price policy (and I quote GOG: "because 1 dollar doesn't mean 1 euro") instead of opting to go for regional prices, either publishes would have to bend to GOG's will or games would be left out of its catalogue. We will never know what would be the case with Original Sin, but there's a chance that the publishers would have agreed to GOG's fair price policy, and we'd simply get it for 39.99 dollars instead of 39.99 euros, like we always did before. I'm only using Original Sin as an example.
