How to Check a Steam Game’s Price in any Country or Region
Have you ever wondered what a Steam game costs in another country? Depending on the publisher, prices can vary slightly or drastically from one region to another. Doom Eternal, for instance, is priced at $60 in the US but sells for $27 a pop in Russia.
I know what you’re thinking, and the quick answer is no, you can’t simply purchase games from another region, not unless you have moved to the region in question and have a valid payment method to match. You can, however, view the price of a game across all supported regions and in their corresponding currencies, if only to satiate your curiosity.
Time needed: 2 minutes.
Here’s how to check a Steam game’s price in any country or region.
- Open up your browser and head on over to steamdb.info.
This website aggregates data from Steam’s database, including regional pricing for individual packages.
- In the search bar at the top, enter the name of a game or application of choice, then select it from the search results.
- In the page that follows, switch to the Prices tab to view regional pricing.
The website automatically picks a currency based on your location, displaying percentage deviation in price for all other currencies. You can select another currency from the drop-down above the list of prices.
Clicking on individual currencies shows the game’s pricing history in the corresponding region. This information can be helpful if you’re struggling to decide whether or not to wait till a game goes on sale. If the trend shows that game’s price has, at some point, been lower than what it’s currently selling for, you might as well add it to your wishlist and wait for it to hit a the same price point.
