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

Matruchus: Well people are forgetting that all the EURO prices increased for all the games and so the regional priced games became also more expensive. Most prices increased about 0.60€. Example: Meridian New World yesterday 8.99€ today 9.59€. Wasteland 2 Deluxe was 45€ and now is 47.59€.

Wurzelkraft: Don't confuse currency conversion with regional pricing and don't compare a regional priced game to a currency converted game please. ;)
Not only that, but GOG already backed down from regional pricing outside of the games they're already contracted for, so we're not going to see enough regionally-priced games to ever justify people constantly throwing it in their faces.

Fact is, this is a completely different issue, one brought about by the economic sanction war between Russia and the west, deliberate currency devaluations and stagnant Eurasian economies. There's no reason to bring up the regional pricing thing, which GOG staff have already admitted was a mistake.

GOG didn't back down at all. Here is a list of all regionally-priced games sold here. It's true, though, that this thread has little to do with regional pricing and more to do with the currency conversion.
Aussies are getting arsed by this deal by an extra 60c which is a lot when you're a Pensioner Like me can't afford it!

Little Creatures Puffing Billy, bock, 6.5% alcohol, $5 for a bottle
It's single-batch and harder to get than attention in a crowded restaurant. But it's a good local version of the German bock style. Think dark malty lager with a strong alcohol finish and a hint of smoked meats. An aspirational drop, you better get some now because it will be gone as quick as the waiter who just walked past.
Drink with: pork knuckle

Oh, Great My Sandwich Meat is out of date!

I rather you guys just go back to the older way of doing things. It was fair and we had more games.
How long till we have a one-world currency called the "Earth Credit"?

Not sure if you actually meant to post this here, but it's good to see a fellow beer enthusiast here! Cheers!

Frankly, I am still waiting for these big AAA new games GOG claimed were the reason for backing off on "one price, one world" policy. So far I have seen only Kickstarter games, that promised to release DRM-free version during their campaign, old not well known games and some new (oddball) games that can be hardly considered to be AAA.

It is not a complaint, just a statement. I understand the change might just trigger beginning of deal however GOG already proven its world-shattering news aren't that world-shattering (I am looking at you, press conferences).

Witcher 3 will be the next...

And to be honest, I don't think we will see new AAA games in a foreseeable future. Every big Publisher is using, Steam, Origin or uPlay as a mandatory client for the games. Even a smaller Publishers with attractive games like Kalypso, who is selling some games here, is using it, so no Tropico 4 or Rise of Venice for GOG.
This won't change until GOG is selling Steam Keys...

Rincewind81: Witcher 3 will be the next...
It has been known for months The Witcher 3 is going to be sold here. It is hardly a surprise. And if that game is the reason for region prices, it would be... well, a downer.
It's like Valve announcing that Portal 3 will be indeed released on *gasp* Steam.

sunshinecorp: To put it in much simpler terms, if regional pricing wasn't in effect, Divinity Original Sin WOULD HAVE TO COST 40 DOLLARS FOR EVERYONE, WORLDWIDE. 40 dollars converted to euros is 31 euros. Not 55, and not 50. The difference you see is not in cents. It's in tens of euros.
I think it's naive to think they would have gone for the lowest price. Without regional pricing, it would probably have launched here for 55 US$ "for everyone, worldwide". Just a hunch.
Madness continues.
...i am not surprised...
As a polite person...there's nothing i can add ;)
