We have a couple of new games pricing.



Square continues to be a huge jerk for my region, while Bamco is still as reasonable as ever, thankfully.

Trials is more pricey than the base US$ price.
Ironically Square price is lower in our region.

Just wanted to highlight a publisher listening. Trine 4 price hiked to Bethesda level bad in India few days before release and I wrote this post.
The publisher guy then responded and had the price fixed.

Extremely rare, but I'm glad this happened.

Wow, that's great. This is exactly why we need to voice our concern regarding pricings, always.

I noticed that Terminator: Resistance is $32 at CD Keys.

That's the cheapest price I've seen since Prey in like 2017.

I'm thinking about jumping on it. What's the skinny on this game?

same on origin? maybe they just set the same exact prices as origin (because reasons)
For me, it's cheaper on Origin. Because there's some form of regional pricing there using SG$, so it's a bit cheaper than full US$ conversion.

It's more or less on par with Ubisoft pricing on Steam.

I've made a thread detailing the pricing on Steam. Share your thoughts here. The PR guy is communicating, and so I thought a post would help in getting light on this issue


Please make sure that
  1. Keep the conversation going, by "bumping" it. We must keep this post on the top so that people keep discussing it.
  2. Please be civil to the EA PR guy. He's human after all.

We have sort a confirmation that they are looking into it.

I would still suggest everyone to reply to this thread and bumping it up, so that other voices can chime in.

This thread is full of shitty persons and trolls now, nothing surprising (but still sad) :blobclosecry:

Made another post for Death Stranding
Add your voices and share it around with your friends, and make this issue known.

After that, write a mail detailing the pricing on Steam of DS vs usual (compare it with Vampire Bloodlines 2) in your region and tell you can not support the game without regional pricing. Mail is more important.
If possible, post this one ResetEra too.

505 don't give a damn, they always fuck ups the prices, they "fixed" indivisible and was the same, just awful.
