Digital games website GOG is conducting an experiment regarding new pricing models, the organization announced today in a post on its website.
GOG is lowering the prices on a select group of games from its catalog, believing that more players will purchase the games if they are cheaper. GOG notes that in order to make games available through the site, they must fund coding, testing and purchase of the rights. GOG will observe the sale and note if brings more overall revenue to the site and it's partners despite the low prices.
