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.

"Free-to-play" misleading advertising in Europe

European Commission meets with devs to improve consumer protections, wants them to stop calling games free if they have in-app purchases. Complaints from consumers who unwittingly purchased in-game upgrades in free-to-play titles have become common enough that the European Commission is taking action on the matter. EC members are meeting with tech companies and national enforcement authorities to go over concerns about consumer protections in the burgeoning market. "Consumers and in particular children need better protection against unexpected costs from in-app purchases," consumer policy commissioner Neven Mimica said in a statement. "National enforcement authorities and the European Commission are discussing with industry how to address this issue which not only causes financial harm to consumers but can also put at stake the credibility of this very promising market. Coming up with concrete solutions as soon as possible will be a win-win for all." The Consumer Protection Cooperation and EC member states have released a list of common positions on the subject, with misleading advertising at the top. "The use of the word 'free' (or similar unequivocal terms) as such, and without any appropriate qualifications, should only be allowed for games which are indeed free in their entirety, or in other…
