Steam is the leading digital video game store, which stands out for making significant sales on a regular basis and for its good customer service. Well, now Steam raises its prices in Spain on some titles. The increase is not too important because it affects a limited number of games, but it is evidence of a change in pricing policy by Steam in Europe.

For Steam there were "two Europes", the first with the standard prices, like France or Germany. However, countries with lower purchasing power were included in another group, and this was the case of Spain, Portugal, Greece, Italy and Ireland. Well, it seems that what Steam is doing is ending these two sections for Europe.

Therefore, they are raising Steam prices in Spain to match those of the we althier Europe For example The Talos Principle has risen from 19.99 euros to 39.99 euros, Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition goes from 13.99 euros to 19.99 euros and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive goes from 10.99 euros to 13.99 euros.

In the case of some minor titles the result of the modifications has been a reduction, but in general we can say that Steam has gone up their prices in Spain. With the European Union's policies to unify the market, it seemed clear that differentiated prices within Europe were going to disappear sooner or later.

Will the Steam price increase affect me?

The truth is that the unification of prices has not meant many changes, because most of the titles already had the same price for all of EuropeRelatively well-known games such as Garry's Mod or Rust have been affected, but the truth is that the vast majority of the catalog has not needed adjustments. Of course, in the absence of confirmation from the company, it seems that special prices for countries like Spain are something of the past on Steam.

So Steam raises its prices in Spain, and puts us at the level of Germany or France… Even though our salaries are very inferior. We always have the Origin video game flat rate for 3.99 euros per month if we want to save as much as possible.

What do you think of the Steam price hike? Doesn't it bother you because it affects few titles, or do you find it worrying that they want to charge us the same as in the richest European countries?
