The Menlo Park, California-based Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) will allow game developers to vend virtual goods based on local-currency prices, rather than Credits, the digital tokens presently used for purchases on the social networking site.
Facebook, operator of the world’s biggest social network, reported in a blog posting on Tuesday that with the change, which is being rolled out current year, developers that vend items in their games, like a digitized animal or beach ball, can now tailor pricing for countries worldwide.
The company announced that the credits were started in 2009 and most game developers have made their personal virtual currencies so now they don’t require the system.
