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.
