Steam Is Now Priced In INR, And It's Not Mere USD To INR Conversion.

A week ago, All Indian steam users received the mail regarding pricing in INR.

Ofcourse we were excited, because it is not mere USD to INR conversion. The game publisher exclusively can price the Indian customers now.

For example, Trine 3 used to cost $20, but now it's mere 595 INR i.e around 10$, which is bloody awesome. Another example is CS:GO that used to cost 15$ and now it is just 479 INR. Now I can't really wait for Christmas sale. 75%-90% discount on most games will cost me just 100-200 INR for most epic games!

Thanks Gabe Newell! For bringing steam on Linux and now exclusive pricing for Indian customers. Can we expect Diwali sales now ? 😁😁

Some games prices hasn't been updated yet, like Terraria, The Witcher 3 : Wild Hunt, Skyrim,etc. Maybe developers are still thinking about pricing it in India. I will give a week for entire SteamDB to be updated.

Wait for Winter sales! I am going to spend a lot this time. (Gabe needs wants my wallet!!)

Some games cost more than their US prices. Like Fallout 4 (4299, really?), COD BO3 and GTA V (Come on, why would I bother spending more on a digital copy wheras I could get a retail copy for ~400 rupees lesser and get a nice retail box with goodies inside!).

On the bright side, there is AOE 2 HD on 80% sale right now for this weekend. Just 113 for a classic.

Agreed! But I am one careless guy, I would easily forget where I kept my damn game. I prefer digital copies from GOG and Steam, rather than buying retail copy. Last time I purchased Retail copy of The Witcher, I had to deal with censorships. So, when there was sale, I purchased DRM free copies of The Witcher series from GOG itself, which includes no cutscenes, no censorship, lots of other goodies and unlike Steam I can download and save it to my portable HD (Thanks to CDPR for DRM free copies)

However, I usually wait for a year to buy games after release, so that it costs me less. But that won't be happening for new Hitman game, for which I am very much impatient.


Feels like Blood Money's tactics, and that excites me.
