Whats your point? This is what its all about. The US Dollar is less than a Euro, but games are just priced the same amount of currency units.

I bought P.B. Winterbottom because the game was only 7% more expensive in € than in $ - why can't all the games be priced similarily? I do not know who to thank - steam, or 2k play, but thanks anyway.

Another confession - I bought left 4 dead 2 because with 33% off it costs exactly the amount in dollars (price comparison script showed 0%) - that's what I am talking about (Yes, I know I am in the cheaper tier).

I know that feeling. When I buy them myself, I usually always wait till there's a pre-order/promo of some sort. The rest of the time I ask an american friend to buy the game for me. It might not be a big difference for small titles, for for 40+ games, it's indeed a considerable amount.

Just noticed it's been 1 1/2 years already since this started D:

With introduction of new steam store look, the price comparison script stopped working. I hope that this will be fixed, in the meantime I will be using http://www.steamprices.com

I wanted to buy German adventure game "Whispered World" on Steam - it turned out it is "only" 75% more expensive in EURO than in DOLLAR.

http://www.steamprices.com/us/search?whispered+world

The irony that it is game made by Europeans and yet Europeans are ripped of the most.

EDIT: it costs a reasonable 19,99 EUR on D2D: http://www.direct2drive.eu/9423/prod...World-Download

And it costs CRAZY 39,99 on Steam.

Just found some serious competition for Steam in Europe getgamesgo lets you pay in £, $ or € and paying in $ seems to give big savings.
Check out Serious Sam Second Encounter HD for an example

Having said all that - the selection of games is rubbish so no real competition for steam

Thanks to some southern european euro countries' bad economy, soon USD will be as strong/weak as euro and there will be no need for this thread anymore.

But after euro gets even weaker than USD and the prices in euro will get higher than the prices in USD, let's make a new thread.

And especially when euro gets stronger again but the higher prices are there to stay...

lol i should join the 1€ ≠ 1$ group.
thanks..but no thanks.
i just bought shattered horizon on steam.
rest of my games i bought by resellers.
1€=1$ for steam.
on the other side.
no panic steam did not loose so much money.
i dont own lot of steam games. cause i will be able to resell my games when i finished them or when games get boring.
