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

apehater: two days ago kings bounty warriors of the north complete did cost 5.99 EUR now its 6.09 EUR and redneck rampage is now 2.49 EUR two days ago it was 2.39 EUR.

Grargar: That's pretty strange, if you ask me. Especially when the base price is unaltered (€23.79 for Warriors of the North and €4.79 for Redneck Rampage). There must be something funny going on with the discount (74% instead of 75% and 48% instead of 50%).
Yeah it must be the discount cause euro is growing since 8th december in comparison to usd so the price should get corrected downwards in euros next month if the trend continous and not be increased.

apehater: that were only 2 examples, but there are pretty much discount changes and it started today or yesterday. i guess gog changed the discount instead of base price, because they arent able to change the base price during the sale without further problems. but why not just wait till the end of the sale or at least an announcement, its a shitty way to treat customers.
The thing is that none of the undiscounted games are affected. Rocket Ranger still costs €4.79. I really think it's a bug.
Other discounted games are also unaffected.

I think the price of the flat-priced games is fixed (there has only one price update by now). The price of the regional priced games changes more often (depending on currency conversion).

I'm not sure if it was a bug. It seems to have been a 50% discount for everyone.

the 50% discount was only on the 4th appearence, on the first 3 appearances it was a 75% discount for every one. so the reason for discount change is still unknown. did this happened to a game on one of the last flash sales?

There was a small discount change for Heroes of Annihilated Empires, from 80% to 75%.

I can't really say that, as I haven't noticed it happening in other games. Seem to be isolated cases.

Not necessarily.

On day #1 of the sale, Age of Wonders 3 Deluxe cost 40c more than it does now when it appears on the Flash sales.

My guess is a rounding bug. The first day discount was rounded down to 66%, now it's rounded up to 67%.

Generally speaking, GOG is very dependable. If there is a potential for a bug, you can be pretty certain that it will appear on GOG at some point.
