Zu regionalen Preisen:
Hey, GOGgers,

We're not perfect, we're exploring new frontiers, and we make mistakes. We thought DRM-Free was so important that you'd prefer we bring you more DRM-Free games and Fair Price was less critical and that it could be sacrificed in some cases. The last two week's worth of comments in our forums (nearly 10k!), show that's not the case. We didn’t listen and we let you down. We shouldn't sacrifice one of our core values in an attempt to advance another. We feel bad about that, and we're sorry. Us being sorry is not of much use to you, so let’s talk about how we will fix it.

One: DRM-free forever. Abandoning fixed regional pricing means it will probably take longer to get some games, but you've made it clear that sacrificing fair pricing for more DRM-free games isn't acceptable.

Two: We will adamantly continue to fight for games with flat worldwide pricing. If that fails and we are required to have regional prices, we will make up the difference for you out of our own pockets. For now it will be with $5.99 and $9.99 game codes. In a couple of months, once we have such functionality implemented, we will give you store credit instead, which then you will be able to use towards any purchase and cover the price of it in full or partially. Effectively gamers from all around the world will be able to benefit from the US prices.

This will apply to every single game where we do not have flat pricing, such as Age of Wonders 3 (full details here), Divinity: Original Sin, and The Witcher 3. If you remember the Fair Price Package for The Witcher 2, this will be exactly the same.

Three: We still intend to introduce the pricing in local currencies. Let us explain why we want to do it and how we want to make it fair for everyone. From the very beginning our intention was to make things easier for users whose credit cards/payment systems are not natively in USD. The advantages are simple because the price is more understandable and easier to relate to. There would be no exchange rates involved, no transaction fees, and no other hidden charges. However after reading your comments, we realized we have taken an important element away: the choice. In order to fix this, we'll offer the option of paying in the local currency or the equivalent in USD. This way, how you pay is always your choice.

Four: You are what matters, and we will be sure to involve you all more in what we're doing and why we're doing it. Let's start by meeting you at GDC - we’d like to invite you to meet us face-to-face Monday the 17th at GDC. Obviously, not all of you can come to San Francisco, so we want to invite all of you to an online event with us early in April to ask us whatever you would like. More details soon.

The bottom line is simple: there may be companies that won't work with us (although we will work hard to convince the most stubborn ones ;). Yes, it means we might miss out on some games, but at the same time GOG.com will remain true to its values and will keep on offering you the best of DRM-free gaming with Fair Prices.

Once again thank you for caring so much about GOG.com. We will work hard not to disappoint you again.

Weekend Promo mit allerhand EA-Titeln: http://www.gog.com/promo/ea_weekend_promo_220814

Habe mir gerade SimCity 4 (das letzte richtige SimCity!) für 7,99$ (statt 19,99$) geholt.

Syndicate und Syndicate Wars habe ich bereits gekauft, sonst hätte ich das jetzt auch gemacht. Ebenfalls sehr empfehlenswert sind Dungeon Keeper 1 + 2, Alpha Centauri, die Wing Commander-Serie und die beiden Crusader-Teile.

Außerdem gibt es auch noch die Ultima-Serie und und und...

Mein altes ist "not safe" - vielleicht haben sie es daher automatisch deaktiviert - sowas macht man aber bitte nicht kommentarlos ???

Das sind ja auch sehr schöne TOS:

Ich haette gern endlich die Beta zu GoG Galaxy. Das ist schon enorm praktisch. Die ganzen Lucasgames brauche ich nicht unbedingt, das ich die meisten eh original hier habe und ScummVM eigentlich idiotensicher zu bedienen ist :)

Sam & Max ist genial. Es ist das erste Point and Click Adventure, dass ich seit Monkey Island spiele. Der Humor ist großartig und die Rätsel sind genau so abgedreht, wie bei Monkey Island. Ich finde es geil. Der Kauf lohnt sich auf alle Fälle.
