Eu vs Na pricing?

So.. Why are they equal? We all know 1$!=1€, and as far as I understand, it's the publisher (or developer) that sets the price?
And seeing how these developers are actually interacting with the community, I would wonder why they chose to discriminate EU by setting the price equal to NA.

It's not about the fact that "I can afford the difference", it's more about the principle I am against.

$1USD =/= $1CAD

North America is too generic, we are America; our name lol.

The other guys have totally different rates.

I already wrote with c_b_fofep about that.
He said, that they said Valve the $ price and Valve did the rest.
He asked Valve why the € price is so high and they answered that this is because of the VAT.

If you dont want to pay that price, just wait a bit. Direct2Drive will get it too i think. And there you can buy it for the $ price (and maybe also get a discount).
But its still a litte problem i think. If it gets released, much european people will see the game, look at the price & see 20€. And thats too expensive for the most people i think.

c_b_fofep, or the company making this game rather, needs to send Valve the price of their game in their individual price points, otherwise it'll just get a generic conversion
