There’s a pretty interesting post on Steam Forums (thanks for the info Kossak) about regional versions of Steam games being released in Russia (yep, Russian only). The original poster thinks that "cheap region restricted versions should be optional, not forced".
Lets expand the idea a little and say why not release games around the world in two versions, one cheaper (restricted to one language only and even one area only where you can’t play it in other country) and one in full price but without any limitations?
What do you guys think about that? Do you have forced localized games too? I didn’t notice that in Poland (well maybe MAFIA 2…) but I guess if Steam would force me to use Polish version only of most games I would be pissed. Especially while playing multiplayer games.
Oh hai btw, Dead Island fucking rocks. I’m back.
