Valveas promised, changed the pricing policy Steam for Argentina and Turkey. Prices in these regions are no longer quoted in Argentine pesos and Turkish lira, respectively, but in US dollars.
In addition, the price adjustment affected 25 more countries and territories in Latin America, the Middle East and North Africa. Let us remind you that the changes are intended to provide “stability and consistency for partners and players” against the backdrop of frequent fluctuations in exchange rates, commissions, taxes and logistics problems.
Users are already reporting large price increases for many games. For example, in Turkey, STALKER 2: Heart of Chornobyl could previously be purchased for $12 (translated from liras), but now for $60. One user from Argentina also complained that the new price of Mortal Kombat 1 was more than his monthly salary.
Valve itself previously published new recommended prices for Turkey and Argentina, but the final cost is determined by the publishers themselves.
