There are some currency changes coming to game stores in a few locations around the world that are worth mentioning today. To be honest, I am not certain what this exactly will mean for the customer, but its worth pointing out today.
However, there were comments here and elsewhere that a big price change was happening, and I wanted to make certain readers knew exactly what the deal was, instead of us fearing a big price increase.

I'm a GW stockist and got this info a while ago. I asked
GW about it and they told me it only affects the places that are part of
EU but not part of the EU taxation rules.
Here is a list of all these places:
Exclusions: There are some areas of the EU that are treated, for the
purpose of the EU VAT, as if they were outside the EU:
Heligoland and Büsingen am Hochrhein in Germany
Ceuta, Melilla and The Canary Islands in Spain
Guadeloupe, French Guiana, Martinique and Réunion in France
Mount Athos in Greece
Livigno, Campione d'Italia and Lake Lugano in Italy
Aland Islands / Ahvenanmaa in Finland
the northern third of the island (the "Turkish Republic of Northern
Cyprus", recognised only by Turkey) and the Green Line, in Cyprus
Faroe Islands in Denmark
Gibraltar on Spain, Akrotiri and Dhekelia on Cyprus in the United Kingdom
the Saimaa Canal and the island of Malyj Vysotskij, Finland leases from
Saint Barthélemy, Saint Martin and the Clipperton Island in France; etc.
IF YOU ARE NOT IN ONE OF THESE PLACES THIS CHANGE DOES NOT AFFECT YOU
