because marketing policy by steam. Alternatively, buy a global key for that game.
Steam games will become much cheaper in select regions soon(Pakistan,Sri Lanka,Nepal ,Bhutan and Bangladesh)
As part of our continuing efforts to make Steam better for players around the world, we are now accepting game pricing in 10 new currencies and 1 new region. Please enter pricing for the following new currencies with launch planned for later this year:
• Argentinian Peso (ARS)
• Costa Rican Colón (CRC)
• Israeli New Shekel (ILS)
• Kazakhstani Tenge (KZT)
• Kuwaiti Dinar (KWD)
• Polish Zloty (PLN)*
• Qatari Rial (QAR)
• Ukrainian Hryvnia (UAH)
• Uruguayan Peso (UYU)
• Vietnamese Dong (VND)
• South Asian Pricing Region (USD discounted pricing for Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka)
In addition to offering local currency pricing in more countries, players in these countries will also be able to use a variety of previously unavailable payment methods. With this update, Steam will support a total of 39 currencies and 80 payment methods, giving your games truly global reach.
Pricing should be entered as soon as possible, with display of these new currencies scheduled to go live in time for our 2017 Autumn and Winter Sales. To enter pricing, sign in to the Steamworks Developer Site and select Pricing from the Apps & Packages drop-down. You will see green-colored recommendations filled in for new currencies, based on your selected USD base price. These recommended prices can be accepted or adjusted at your discretion. As a reminder, if you do not have pricing entered for a country after a local currency is set live on the Steam storefront, your game will be unavailable for sale in that country.
We have also updated our recommended pricing matrix for new and existing currencies. Our goal is to update these recommendations annually, so as to better help developers succeed in markets worldwide. Pricing decisions on Steam are entirely in the hands of you the developer, and we encourage you to always do what’s best for your players. You can find more information and suggested best practices in the Steamworks Pricing Documentation.
*PLN pricing is specific to Poland, but as always any game licenses purchased within an EEA country (either directly or as a gift) can be redeemed by any user within the EEA.
Pakistan got regional pricing cheaper than India
That last point, so unfair.
On the brighter side , we can now hope that the next generation Pakistanis will aspire to become FPS shooters in gaming rather than becoming one of those crazy spineless "Alalalalalalalalala" murderers killing innocents and children.
Massive respect to Steam for taking a tactical step forward towards ensuring world peace.

Gabe for Nobel???
In valve point of view its not unfair. We are much bigger economy and better life than them so there is that.
Winter sales are something that I am looking forward to. Let's see if there are good discounts this time or not.
Valve only suggests prices, publishers set them. I guess the default price suggested by Valve is pretty much the same in both regions considering this example (I don't think the publisher changed the prices from the default for this one).
Well I mean whoever set those prices. That was my mistake not to clarify properly.
Japanese publishers don't release all games for India. Was expecting to get Xenoverse on sale but that's not happening because of this region BS.
Xenoverse games are on sale at Gamersgate atm.
Thanks! May end up buying it after all.
Sexy level achieved
LOL I also got that last sale but didn't noticed, otherwise I would had stopped at that point.
