Oh wow, that's really cool. Have you tried doing this yourself? Were you able to get any games for cheaper price? If so I might want to try it out myself.

Link I found:

http://www.steamprices.com/us/topripoffs

People can use this to trade for games using BTC with people who can access the cheaper rates.
Ha, I didn't ever know that they are charging us on a region basis. This is a really good find.
I will try some VPNs tonight

Humblebundle.com offers different steam games every week at a big discount also.

A good percentage of proceeds go to charity. Check it out, its well worth it

Or you could a VPN and change your location for the steam to whatever place is the cheapest, then pay with Bitcoins, with no need of a middleman

You know if you do this they can ban your game ? You not suppose to buy games cross region. They do check and you can lose the game. Also if say you want Diablo 3 you can get it half price at the Russian region. The problem is it's all in Russian and you can't change the language. So there are many limitations.

If the game is virtual and doesn't involves any physical trading (taxes), why is the price different for each country?

The taxing is different in different regions. Look how cheap Russian games are they like half price.

Problem is that it is hard to change your steam's IP. There are terms and conditions for this and you need to prove to them that you did move countries and not just a temporary visit to it. Unless you want a steam account per country/game then this is viable

Easily find out some steam game stores with very cheap price by Google. In my country they sell CS:GO only 6.17$

I'm thinking the same with you, so anyone have experience with this before? I mean purchase game from other region than you and never get banned, actually i would like to buy GTA V, in my area this game is quite expensive that's why i'm looking for the better price, and Rusia has cheaper than my region but i heard that if you buy it from Russia it will be region block and you can't activate it, the language also is the problem

if you buy from rusia, its only applies on rusia. if you still trying to claim it making your game unable to play. if you redeem it by using VPN that make you violate the rule and make restriction on your account. you cant even play, so dont matter on the language. you can find it on the steam support, i recommend you not to bypass the steam system, or you will regret it later. remember, the choice is yours
