IVG has been dreading this for over a year, but the inevitable has finally caught up with us. Starting September, EA does plan on raising prices for all its PC games in India. (EA, PC)

I'd recommend you edit your overview of the story to indicate how much we're talking about here in US Dollars. To save you a little bit of time, 1,799 rupees is $30.00, 1,499 rupees is $24.90, and 3,299 rupees is $54.81.

Just pointing it out.
Most PC games usually cost here between $8.4 $16.81 mark.
Rs.499 and RS.999.

And that is still seen as pretty high price by many people here in India.

Price of games should be same as console anyhow, no sympathy here....

This happens as India's PC hardware sales double from the previous year. I see your aim EA. You know the big PC boom is happening in India with potentially 800,000,000+ gamers in India in the future.
