    Default [Guide] Definitive guide for buying Steam games vheaply

    What is this?
    A guide for you to migrate your Steam account to India.

    Why?

    Games are cheaper compared what you're likely paying now. e.g.
    Darksiders Franchise Pack:

    SQUAD:

    Deus Ex Mankind Divided:


    Is it safe? Will Valve ban my account?

    To tell you the truth I am not 100% sure if it's completely safe. But ban is unlikely I think. Asking around will probably net you zero result like me, so don't bother.

    So I could lose my account because of you?

    Like I said most unlikely. But this is the perfect opportunity for me to assert that "Whatever you do here, do it at your own digression. I will not take responsibility for any irreparable damage to your health or wealth." So if (and that's a biiiiig IF) you lose your account, that's on you.

    Did you fart this knowledge from thin air?

    No. My source(s) is the following:
    • Changing countries in Steam – a blog by an expat in China
    • Expats talking about the loophole in expatgamingchina.com forum
    • Steam KB (Knowledge Base) about travelling/moving to different country
    • Steam KB about region restrictions

    TL;DR?

    You should read them up. But the gist of it is:
    • Changing the Steam account country (and adding address) to say China or India means you're declaring your permanent address there.

    • Steam will most likely treat you as an expat from that country in Bangladesh.

    • You can't change address frequently. 2 weeks cool down after every change.

    • Region-lock means just that, locked in a specific region. You can only play while living in the region. If you move, the game will be grayed out.

    • Steam Wallet is the safest payment method since it's not tied to any country. Other options (PayPal, credit/debit card, gift card) might be problematic.

    • Most games aren't region-locked when bought from the store (unlike gifting games). But if they are, the store page should reflect that. e.g.


    Ok. You convinced me. What do I do?

    Read on brother/sister.

    What you need:
    • A VPN tunneling application of your choosing
    I personally recommend SoftEther VPN with VPNGate plugin. SoftEther is only the software. VPNGate plugin of vpngate.com community has the list of free VPN servers
    • A working Steam account
    • A valid Indian address. Google it. House #, Street #, Division, City and most importantly the postal/zip code.
    • $5 or more Steam Wallet code if yours is a Limited User Account. If you're unfamiliar with the term read about it here

    Procedure:
    1) If you're logged in to Steam, log out. Close Steam app from task manager or system tray. Don't just minimize/close to tray.

    2) Open your VPN application. Choose the Indian server. Connect.

    3) After connection establishes see google or IP tracker sites to check if you've a Indian IP.

    4) If successful in obtaining an Indian IP, proceed to 5).
    4a) If not successful, choose different server or choose a different VPN application.

    5) Open Steam app without logging in and check if the prices are now in Indian Rupees ( ₹ ) or not. This will ensure that the whole PC is being tunneled by the VPN app, not just the browser.

    6) Now log in to the Steam account.

    7) If you have a limited account skip to 10). If you have full privileged account read on.
    8) Go to Account > Account Details > Update Store Country.

    9) Write down the valid Indian address and continue. Voila!

    10) If you have a limited account and have read this link you know what to do. Redeem the $5 or more Steam Wallet code.

    11) A prompt about updating your billing address should pop up. Write down the aforementioned Indian address here and continue. Voila!

    I tried using your recommended SoftEther + VPNGate combo. Where's the Indian server on the list?

    The people(s) who own the server likes to turn it off every now and then it seems. Check back later.

    The download speed is atrociously slow!

    Yeah. IDK how many people are connected to the server at a time. Not recommended for downloading.

    I hate India! Don't ask why. Can I choose a different country? Indonesia, Malaysia or Philippines perhaps?

    Uhh... Ok. Should be no problem. Do it at your own risk though.

    Anything else I need to know about?

    Nah. Like previously stated rarely games bought from store are region-locked. But if they are it's notified in the store page.
    Tomb Raider (2013):

    Dark Souls III :

    Rise of The Tomb Raider :

    Deus Ex Mankind Divided :


    If you want further confirmation which games are region-locked or not check out this guide.

    P.s. Wow! Prices of Dark Souls games are all over the place. That's uhhh... awkward.
    Dark Souls 1:

    Dark Souls 2:

    Dark Souls 3:

    Not really. More than often the price stays the same as america : https://steamdb.info/app/883710/ https://steamdb.info/app/582010/ https://steamdb.info/app/782330/ https://steamdb.info/app/1056960/ https://steamdb.info/app/939850/


    Sometimes publishers even charge more than the standard US price : https://steamdb.info/app/927380/

    Aren't we in the Indian region? And if so, all of those links have us at lower prices than the US.

    no we are ROW, our prices are on par with USA for most games, rare cases higher. Though i have to admit for couple of months in 2017 we enjoyed cheaper games than US prices. When 2018 started devs increased the prices, i dont know why... i thought games are still region locked?



    @Dracu_JeF if lord gaben adds BDT in steam will it be good for us? We can use dollar/euro steam wallet code and still get the choice to refund wallet from bangladeshi taka debit credit cards?

    Guys you can family share games bought from other regions like India. If you are worried about getting your main accounts banned I would suggest just making another account and family sharing from that

    Lord gaben ain't gonna add BDT in steam. They just put us in the same group (South Asia) with pakistan/nepal/myanmar and called it a day. There isn't even a steam wallet code distributor listed here anymore : https://support.steampowered.com/kb_...1193-WLXV-6514

    funny thing is money laundering and everything is already flowing smoothly with or without paypal if anything, maybe (and ironically) paypal might hinder their under-the-table nefarious deeds thats why its not allowed, now, wheres my tinfoil hat at....

    idk man, I bought metro exodus gold edition on steam (before the epic launcher BS) for 27 bucks whereas it was around 80 bucks on microsoft store

    I highly doubt it. It's probably less about money laundering and more about "what the heck is this paypal thingy...lets just block it...omuk e koise eita dia omuk tomuk kore". Just look at the submarine cable situation. "tottho churi hobe"


    Few AAA publishers and most of the indie publishers gives reasonable discounts for South Asia region, like how cyberpunk is at 30$. But most of the good stuffs doesn't really get the regional discount treatment.

    And for some weird reason, most of the japanese dev/publishers thinks we can spend more money than US citizens :/

    @Dracu_JeF if lord gaben adds BDT in steam will it be good for us? We can use dollar/euro steam wallet code and still get the choice to refund wallet from bangladeshi taka debit credit cards?
    Weird, I've never seen any game that is higher than US. Most of the time I see them cheaper than the usual $60.

    1) We are in South Asia with Nepal, Myanmar, Sri Lanka and others as Dracu_jef said.

    2) The problem is not playing games @UzuShin , it's buying and owning it.

    3) I don't think govt. is blocking paypal lol. I can't remember how many times govt. sent a delegation to beg paypal to come here. It's more that during previous ceo paypal aggressively expanded (even to peanut economy nepal has paypal). Then the latest ceo put a full stop to that. Iirc Sri Lanka recently got paypal after aggressive lobbying.

    4) The high pricing of JP games is quite intelligent if you think about it. They know their games are niche and don't sell that well outside of established markets. So even if "white knights" like that... What'shisname... 980ti with 15" monitor... Buys games at full price they're getting profit.

    BTW I'm using Argentina atm. Messi's home town Rosario to be exact lol. It's one of the cheapest region. Except some outliers like Ubisoft games which are cheaper in India.
