Usually, this is a mistake. Rather than hide it, Steam seems to want to show its gamers and allow them to take advantage - should you wish.
How do I get the price glitch?
It seems that once you find a game that you're interested in with a price glitch, you have to manually search for it in the desired currency on the Steam marketplace.
