It's not our local currency, so why can't we be excepted like the UK is?
And why must Hungarians use Euros, why can't we get games in Hungarian Forint.

And if exceptions, why can't I play a censored game which is aviable in the rest of Europe (excepting Germany or the UK), in Hungary there's no game censorhip, even nobody cares about ratings.

Why would you want to play a censored game? And didn't you guys ever think that it might cost more to download because of you countries prices?

lalalalala when will they listen?
right now dragon age is on "sale" .. It's cheaper to purchase a brand new game than getting it from Steam, even when it's on sale. wow, talk about an epic price failure.

This. Also, I thought Norway wasn't a part of the European Union. Correct me if I'm wrong, because I'm definitely not clear on this. :P

You're correct. We're not part of EU.

And I think it would be nice if I could use DKK on Steam. Granted that the prices will be fair by then. :P

Imagine if they did the same thing as With dollars and euros, so it's USD=EUR=NOK=DKK on Steam! I'd buy a ton of games if that happened!

A thread with 502 pages and 899,304 views on this forum
and not a single word from a Valve employee in it is a sad sad thing for me to see as fan of Valve games...
