Humble Bundle announced yesterday that they're bringing in regional pricing for their bundles to make their whole store more "consistent".

Before this change you would have the Humble Store in various currencies, Humble Choice was also in different currencies and then all their other bundles were in US Dollars. Their statement sent to us was short and to the point:

Today, Monday, February 10, 2020, we’re making purchasing more consistent across our store, bundles and Humble Choice by introducing regional pricing for all of our bundles. The following currencies are supported for bundles: EUR, GBP, CAD, AUD, NZD, TRY, RUB, and PHP. 

Please note, for live bundles launched before today, the currency is still in USD.

When asking on how they're working out the pricing for each currency, they said it will depend on exchange rates and provided this link.

Additionally, ahead of Valentines Day on February 14 they're running a big Lovers x Fighters sale and of course there's some wonderful (and some weird) Linux games on sale. Some fun picks:

Plus a bunch more. The Lovers x Fighters sale runs until February 17, 6PM UTC.

Good old euro price includes VAT, dollar price likely doesn't.

Also love ho they just cram all of the EU in there, even though half of the countries don't even use Euro. Whenever I see an e-store I'm using offer "regional pricing", it always feels like they're being sarcastic :).

EU stands for European Union, although it is often used as an abbreviation of Europe, which is not the same thing. There are a few countries in Europe that are not members of the EU. Although most EU member countries have their currency tied to Euro, so the exchange rate is always the same, even if they do not use Euro directly.

Of course lumping e.g. Romania and Denmark in the same region is just mean, because of how different salaries are in these countries.

This kind of regional pricing sucks!
The prices in Argentina are the same of the USA.

because it will take them years to apply the prices in ARS...:| at least with steam we only got that a few years ago! can't complain though about steam prices despite the high inflation been checking the prices and they have not increased in like three months.
