    Valve Corporation, the monopoly of gaming was sued by EU for Geoblocking. Valve plan with 5 publishers was to raise prices and block games in other countries. Meaning Frence games would be Frence games and American games be American.

    That’s what the entertainment industry wants to do with videos and CDs.

      Never heard this claim before and it’s sounds counterproductive for Valve to limit the options of purchases for users.

      Can you provide something to back this up?

        I would think that more markets would mean more money, no? I don’t see how this could ever be good for them, but we learned in another post that Cocoon is out of print in USA but available in UK.
