Steam Adds Australian Pricing, But It Doesn’t Go So Well
The day has finally come for Australian gamers. Steam, the world’s largest digital PC store, now officially supports the Australian dollar. Since Steam’s launch, Australian users were forced to pay in American dollars, which meant higher prices in some cases after conversion.
In a post on Steam’s website, Valve explained that Australian Steam accounts with Steam Wallets in USD will see that money automatically converted to AUD based on the current market rate. The FAQ also clarifies that those with Australian accounts must pay in AUD.
