Confirming yesterday's educated speculation, the last video in GOG.com's promo commercial series has revealed that more new release titles will indeed be coming to the online distribution service that was originally established as an outlet for Good Old Games.

Although the GOG site has made its mark as a repository for classic PC games of yesteryear, 2011's release of The Witcher 2 on the service (GOG is a sister company to The Witcher's Polish developer CD Projekt RED) proved that brand new games can find success under the same DRM-free and regional-price-parity distribution model.

We'll find out tomorrow what third party publishers might be embracing the service and though we expect it's probably going to be mostly smaller European publishers and indie developers, it would be a real win for consumers if there's even one or two of the bigger players getting on board. We have seen a lot of these companies begin to sell games on their competitor EA's Origin service recently, so maybe it's not out of the question.

For the time being, check out their latest video for more of that awesomely awkward Eastern European flair. By Jove! How smashing. A round on me!

Not really holding out much hope, but will be hugely happy if someone like THQ or SEGA are on board with this. DRM-free/ US Priced Metro: Last Light, Darksiders 2 or Shogun 2 etc would be pretty amazing

I'd like to see publishers wake up to themselves RE: Regional pricing... it's absurd to be paying 200% for a game in Australia when there's no better service being provided (like local servers for MMO's etc)

It's clear cut collusion and price fixing between publishers and retailers. They do it because they can get away with it. For some reason this is completely acceptable with online media.

Whereas you would lose your f*****g s*** if you went to buy lets say a watch from the US and the price arbitrarily doubled because that is apparently how much the watch is now worth when it's being bought by an Australian in Australia.
