Steam Adds Australian Pricing

A post on Steam from Valve announces that products on Steam now offer localized prices in Australian dollars for customers down under (thanks PCGamesN). The lack of local pricing in Australia has long been a frustration for gamers in the region, we can point to a story from over seven years ago with complaints about AU price-gouging. Here's word on what's changing and what's staying the same:
The entire Steam catalog is now priced in Australian Dollars for customers living in Australia.

Frequently Asked Questions


What happened to USD in my Steam Wallet?
Australian accounts with Steam Wallets in USD have automatically been converted to Australian Dollars, at a conversion rate dictated by market value at the time of conversion. To view your wallet balance and account details, go to https://store.steampowered.com/account.

Can I continue to make purchases in USD?
The Australian Dollar is the currency that is available for purchases made in Australia.

Has the availability of games on Steam changed with this?
No changes have been made to the contents of your library. All of the languages and features in the games that existed when the store was priced in USD are still available. Most games previously available in USD are now priced in AUD and are available for purchase in Australia, but an occasional product may be missing until it is priced in AUD.

Still showing as USD to me...

Yeah, me too. Why is the post written as if it's been done already?
