I know what you are saying. As I said- steam regional pricing gives you cheap games and an extra lock. 2x the price gives you ownership of the game, not its license.

Choose what suits you :)

Obviously none of this should happen for people who pay for games. But well that is the world for you.

Wrongdoers always enjoy while those who follow rules get clobbered.


INR at GOG, best of both worlds. :p

I am yet to see any game that mentions India region lock in store page. Could you guys please share me a link?

Mukher kotha foluk! Hope what you say becomes real.

I already raised a ticket with them about this. Their reply was that it is in talks within the company.

Let's hope.

Mukher kotha ki folbe?
I thought GOG have universal pricing. As $1 is not equal to €1. Did I miss something?

You missed a huge controversy, probably the biggest in GOG's history. They have tried to maintain a universal pricing by offering store credit to higher priced region (mostly Euro zone), but regional pricing has been introduced. Have lost wind of what's the present situation.

Yeah there is regional pricing in most EU countries.

One tip when purchasing from steam now guys. To make sure the version of the game has restrictions or not:

Open the steam store in your browser when you are buying, go to the game store page you wish to buy,

r-click->add to cart button->Inspect Element in the context menu

(Or ctrl+shift+I)

Note number:
javaScript:addToCart(number)

Next, open https://steamdb.info,

go to packages->search

and paste this number.

Should give you details of the key version you will get, I.e row or play locked or region locked or trade locked etc.

Cheers.

Or just install Enhanced Steam or SteamDB extension. :p

is there a way to know ,restrictions of already purchased game? for example i got the csgo recently on the amazon sale
Yeah I feel you man, am still looking for a way myself :)

Wanna check my entire library.

Some keys do mention IN in them though if you see under licenses and subscriptions. Those that don't have are prolly ROW or US versions.

But you need not worry, all versions of cs-go only have cross region trading and gifting restrictions. No play blocks that I know of.

hmm
well i think if its play restricted , then steam will definitely specify and it will show up in steam db, i was looking through packages of csgo and found one, which specifically says it can purchased and played only in certain countries

Don't mistake purchase restriction for play restriction. And yes you are right, steam will show it in the store page in a NOTE box.

I can confirm that steam wallet cards that are in US dollars will work. ( I suffered a 20rs loss though)

Okay, steamdb extension will help you check what version of keys you already have.

So far in my library of 220, I found deus ex collection and sleeping dogs with play locks :/

Rest seem to be good.

What's your sub id for Sleeping Dogs? Mine is 15612. I recall it used to be marked as EU, now it says WW(-DE,JP). It's a retail disc btw.

Is there any way to automate the process of checking play lock? Checking each game individually is cumbersome.
