20 replies 145 views Edited Jul 15, 2013

Hi

Today I have created account and I wan't to know, why are American "buy dowload" or "buy disc" cheaper then in another countries? exsample in Croatia is disc 111 dolars in america is 60 dolars.  The download buy is the same 50% expensive then america. so I don't know will I buy ps4 if it is so expensive in Croatia.  How can I buy American "downloads" ?? because I am not crazy to give 50% more money for the same game.

Not all regions have the same currency.

Yeah. For example $200 is about £150 in the UK.
However America do get things much, much cheaper. Just look at the PS4 and XBone.
Makes me cringe when an American complains about their price...

The world is PSN regioned. You have to have a PSN ID made for a specific region to use that region's store.

 

You have to have money for that store too, so your Credit Card must be from that region, or you have to buy PSN cards from that region to put into that PSN ID's online wallet.

 

Differences in online and disc prices exist in the USA as well as in other regions. Also, you can't compare head to head prices region to region, there are reasons for different prices: agreements, licensing, and don't forget that exchange rates fluctuate.

Think of Steam as Linux and a console as a PC.

 

One is open source and the other is not.
