I did a quick twitter feed recently that we will need to raise the price of our games soon, due to the exchange rate. A picture says a thousand words, so here you go:
Now, this is the spot rate; add another 2 – 3 cents for the actual exchange rate you pay. For us, we’ve been using an exchange rate for $1.05 for a while now (the reason why it often seems we had a higher price than our competitors who were pricing in at par); but with the recent surge we’re going to need to adjust our rate to $1.10.
As you can see, that’s actually still below the ‘actual‘ rate and it’ll only be for products that we bring in new. We’ll be updating our pre-orders of course, but for now older products are going to be a steal. From all indications, the exchange rate is just going to get worst – so we might even have to adjust again in a few months!
