promoting? no.
encouraging? yes.

And not just with increasing sales prices...*cough* origin *cough*.

well of course they're not directly promoting it, but with how piracy was previously seen in India they might as well.

I'm wondering if they simply looked at their sales demographics and concluded that the people who could afford expensive games would make them more money than the people who'd be waiting for discounts, but I can't imagine that.

I pulled up a list of living costs in India

putting game prices into that perspective makes the pricing choice outrageous

EA's tagline should be - "Happily making you pay us more money each time."
On second thought, it probably already is.
