The European Commission will examine the legality of regional blocks on Steam

The European Commission is going to take a look at region blocks on Steam. Can we count on non-region blocked games in the future? We all do realize that regionally blocked games are cheaper in certain regions and that’s OK I guess but, according to The European Commission, Valve is breaking the laws of fair trade between the European Union’s countries.

I think I have sent a letter to them around 2012-2013 and even did a petition (like that ever works haha… but at least they’ve responded and also here) but all of my letters from back in the day were basically ignored saying that Valve can do whatever they can. It seems that now they’ve got a lot of requests from different countries and finally decided to do something about it which is really good for us.

But Steam is not all because companies like Bandai Namco, Capcom or others are also on gunpoint because they enforce those region blocks on Steam. The whole case just started but Valve is obviously going to do something about it, question is are we going to like it or not? I will keep you posted about this issue and post more about it in the future.

G2A to start selling bundles as one-time purchase or as a yearly subscription in 2017

G2A is going to sell bundles of really cool game titles at low prices in early 2017, you can either subscribe to, or make a one-time purchase in order to receive game bundles of carefully selected triple A and indie game titles for an amazing price. So basically what Humble Store already does with their monthly subscription.

Although the official name for these bundles is still a secret, we can already tell you what to expect – and that is a lot.

Each bundle will contain a few game titles. These games will be specifically and carefully selected every month, and will include well known triple A titles, as well as hand-picked indie games. Each new month means a new bundle – full of different specially selected games.

G2A will give you full disclosure about what games are included in these bundles before you buy them. This is not a random key offer – this is knowing exactly what you are paying for, but getting it for a phenomenal price. We cannot reveal the exact cost yet.

Customers will be able to get the bundle either as a one-time purchase, or as a yearly subscription. Stay tuned for more information in 2017, including titles, prices, and of course, the launch date.
