Why does Square Enix thinks putting such baffling regional pricing will get more people to buy their games?
Why do non-US customers always have to suffer?!

What I mean by standard regional pricing is that Steam has put prices equivalent to it's USD counterpart for all supported currencies based on the purchasing power of the currency, taxes etc. See: https://partner.steamgames.com/doc/store/pricing

They've assigned 1085 ₽ to Russia. (See Vampire Bloodline 2 Prices)

https://store.steampowered.com/app/532790/Vampire_The_Masquerade__Bloodlines_2/

But most big publisher almost never adhere to this and manually put prices. Hence 1999₽ for a lot of them
73$ USD is an absurd price to pay.

$83.99 CAD... I guess i can wait for 75% off sale in a year or so.

Kinda where I'm at too. Bought the Pikachu Edition bundle last week so at this point I might as well just get a pre-owned copy of the game for the Switch for like 40$ or whatever.

Game is great and hooray for SE going back to making turn based games, but it ain't worth no 80$.

We should be protesting against such horrible pricing, when Steam has set a standard of how regional prices should be.

I added this to my wishlist and then saw the price. immediately removed from my wishlist. That is absolutely absurd.

How can they possibly justify this?!?!
There's no way they can justify the price.
