    I don't work for Steam :) but I am pretty sure its not the right price for the game. Must be some kind of mistake on their end or something.

    On Steam prices can drop fast but not this fast :D

    Hasn't dropped at all - £29.99 in the UK on Steam. Same as last week...hope it lasts till payday!
     
  3. Prices are different in different regions. cc=ua is probably for Ukraine, which has a lower disposable income than, for example, Germany, and that price seems okay.

    It's still 35€ here. At least it's worth it. :thumbsup:

    When I am in Steam it is still showing Assetto Corsa at $39.99, link below:
    http://store.steampowered.com/app/244210/

    The link you provided has "?cc=ua" appended to the end. This page does show the prices as $19.99, what' going on...
    http://store.steampowered.com/app/244210/?cc=ua

    I wouldn't be too happy if the price was cut in half in a week, especially since I bought based on potential. I don't hot lap much anymore.

    Like @Senad Subasic pointed out the $19,99 dollars is for the local Ukranian market.

    Every region/country may have different prices. Sounds reasonable also.
     

  8. Yep each region on steam his its own prices to match that region and that regions taxes. This is how some websites can offer steam games cheep as they baulk buy games from one region and sell it in another.

    If you yourself buy from another region by using a proxy or having a friend by the game you are liable to having you steam account banned , though I don't think anyone has yet other than people that are baulk buying and doing the selling themselves.

    You can also do the same with origin and some digital shop platforms.

    So in short , if you do buy directly from steam using a proxy or have a friend in one of those countries buy it and then gift it to you should not have any issues.
    Obviously kunos will get less if you pay less , so if you care about that just pay your regions price , though to be honest your purchase is likely a drop in the ocean and most people just buy on the default store page ( this is probably why steam don't pursue it so much)

    Its worth reiterating , any place that sells keys separate to steam unless its a trusted site like GreenMangaming, SimplyCDkeys, humble bundle and a hand full of others be carfull as there are many scammers!

    Also beware of any steam users trying to sell you the game and of course never give out your user name and password.

    I asked about this over at the AC forum - this price is reduced because of the Ukranian store being selected (?cc=ua in the URL). Going into the checkout will change the price back to your specific region. :)
     
  10. I had a Steam friend buy and then gift me a game, both because it was significantly cheaper and in one case it wasn't even available in my Steam Store. No issues with any of those.

    But I personally wouldn't risk circumventing the regional pricing with a proxy.
    And in some cases, you wouldn't want to anyway (gotta support the team).
