The Swedish krona comes to Steam

Valve’s digital game store Steam is filled to the brim with game titles in both free and paid formats, which are accompanied by a marketplace for trading game-specific items. The Steam application is available in many languages, including Swedish, but the price tags that are available in the different parts of the store do not necessarily follow the currency of the specified country.

This applies, among other things, to those who live in Sweden, where the euro is instead used across the board. At competing stores such as Epic Games Store and GOG, prices are instead stated in Swedish kronor, and now the astute Twitter user Steam Database announces that Valve is also preparing to add the currency in the future.

Together with Bulgarian, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Hungarian and Romanian currencies, the Swedish is glimpsed in code that Steam Database has examined. It remains to be seen when the changeover will take place, but the same adjustment already exists today for some European countries without the euro, of which Poland is an example. The comments of the Twitter post point out that Bulgaria is aiming for a change to the euro within three years, which indicates that the update will at least roll out in the next few years.

With the forthcoming transformation, it follows that calculators and the current exchange rate are no longer needed to investigate how much easier the wallet becomes with a purchase. A more uncertain effect, however, is that new prices in kronor and ören do not necessarily correspond to the euro levels, but if that is the case, the future may show.

Do you think this will have a positive or negative effect on Steam prices?
