The purchase function of some games has disappeared from the ESD platform ‘Steam’ developed and serviced by Valve.

At present, there is a phenomenon in Steam that the game cannot be bought because the price is not displayed or the purchase function is not displayed in some games. The target games are different from publishers and indie. In the case of the Monster Hunter series, ‘Monster Hunter World’ can be purchased, but the Ice Bone, a large expansion pack, cannot be purchased, and ‘Monster Hunter Rise’ cannot be purchased at all. In addition, ‘Monster Hunter Story 2’ is causing the inconvenience of gamers because the main story is missing.

The exact time when the problem occurred is unknown, but it is estimated that it occurred from 8:00 am today (4 days). This is because Twitter, which complains of related issues since 8 o’clock, has been posted. The cause of the problem is still unknown. Even though it has been quite a while since the problem has occurred, Steam has not made any official statement on this.

Meanwhile, according to the Steam Unofficial Database Steam DB, Steam terminates the Steam Server every week for regular inspections, and today it was found that the Steam server was terminated for regular inspection. As the regular inspection is at 8 am, some kinds of problems have occurred in the process.
