Steam Now Shows a 30-Day Low Price In Compliance With EU Laws

Steam will now display a 30-Day low price in some EU countries to comply with the Omnibus Directive.

Steam With 30-Day Low Price

As shared in a tweet by SteamDB, a site which tracks statistics on Steam, Steam will now be showing a 30-day low price on games in select European Union countries in compliance with the Omnibus Directive. The Omnibus Directive is an EU directive which strengthens consumer law specifically with transparency requirements on online purchases. In all honestly, this is a small change that mostly serves to tell you that you missed out on a deal recently but at the same time, it does help on the rare chance that a developer increases the price of a game which generally doesn’t go unnoticed.

What do you think of this new feature, do you think it should be implemented in more countries? Let us know in the comments.
