Steam: users migrate their account to Argentina, what's going on?

Steam: users migrate their account to Argentina, what's going on?


In the last few hours, Steam, Valve's well-known platform, is rolling back several accounts migrated to Argentina. What is happening? The motivation is really very simple to illustrate: in the South American country the offers are decidedly greedy. A situation very similar to what happened some time ago, when some users migrated to the South African Nintendo eShop, to take advantage of convenient offers due to more disadvantaged economies. Without further ado, let's analyze what has been leaked in these hours.

Gabe Newell, founder of Valve Corporation The news was initially reported on Reddit, then moved on to ResetEra (in fact, the original post is no longer available) where users have started a very participatory discussion. Valve, realizing the arcane, in fact, decided to give the coup de grace to the accounts migrated to Argentina, carrying out a mass rollback to their original country: the Steam regulation, in fact, does not allow you to set a country of origin. origin different from the IP of origin.

The use by users of certain stratagems obviously puts users in the most disadvantaged countries in difficulty, given the rise in prices due to increasingly frequent purchases on the store. Will Gabe Newell's company be able to counter this phenomenon once and for all? Impossible to predict, among other things with the wide expansion of virtual networks, but we will try to keep you updated on this.
