I am writing this email with the hopes of conveying the concerns of Turkish Origin-PC community.
As a member of Origin-PC community in Turkey, I must sadly report that, the latest pricing strategy of Origin-PC Turkey online store has started to greatly impact whether we can afford to play games. You might know that Origin-PC Turkey online store is not locally managed and is subject to European pricing. In other words, we pay close to 70 euros for newly released games. The problem is, we can't afford it economically.
You can clearly see our predicament when you simply compare minimum wages across countries like France, Germany and the UK versus Turkey. By simply comparing minimum wages, you can see that a person in those countries earn about five (yes 5!) times of a counterpart in Turkey (around 1500 euros vs 300).
The solution to our problem is not as hard as it sounds. You can see for yourself that online services like EA Access all have special pricing for Turkey. Furthermore, STEAM has special pricing and discounts for our country as well.
In short, we kindly ask EA to players revise the prices for Turkish Store and apply the fixed exchange rate that will make games reachable for Turkish Origin-PC players. We think it may be obtainable by revising the prices and putting a region lock to games that are sold on the Turkish playstation store.
