Surely they are at the mercy of publishers in these cases? The option is to not sell game to that region or to price gouge.

It sucks, but I don't completely blame GoG

Sigh tired of UK getting the shaft all the time.

buying more and more games from grey-area cd key vendors. often saving £15-20 with as of yet no problems.

It sucks, but if gog wants to stay relevent, they need to make choices like these.

Well that sucks... Fair prices were the next best thing about GOG.

They did it before with The Witcher 2, then conveniently 'forgot' to enforce people changing their regions on their profiles.

I wonder if they're doing it again now for The Witcher 3, which might be opening for pre-order soon?

@MBirdy88: blame your government

I really want out of the UK, struggling to see any upsides.

i started doing the same lately ( EU pricing sucks ) . Though aside those cd-key vendors Greenmangaming is pretty decent. It usually has a 20-25% off coupon to overcome those regional pricing restrictions
