Defintely not a glitch. My 4 PS3 game orders were all done separately - at different times. I, too, logged in to the UK site with my US account. I was only denied when trying to order any 360 versions - perhaps Amazon 'knows' PS3 is region free (PSN codes aside)...


It doesn't work with every PS3 game either though. I couldn't order Of Orcs and Men. In any event, the policy page hasn't been updated and it still lists games as not able to be shipped to the US. Maybe this is an experiment or maybe it's permanent, but I can guarantee once the publishers and distributors get wind of this, they are going to go after Amazon like crazy, so enjoy it while you can.

Amazon does know that the games are region free as I had a problem where I received a UK version of a Square Enix game. When I called to complain, they were like well it's region free... Unfortunately, Amazon, point cards are not region free so it's not the "same" :cry:

CE for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (UK) edition was announced today. It's a Zavvi exclusive and supposedly only 25,000 will be made. Available now for £99.99.

Xbox360
PS3

Includes:

  • A copy of the game.
  • Play Arts KAI 30cm Raiden White Armor figurine.
  • White Armor Raiden DLC code, which adds increased capacity to carry life-recovery items.

**
The steelbooks are not included with the Zavvi CE and are only available from GAME or "independent stores" depending on the steelbook:


"Additionally, Konami is offering two pre-order incentives. The first, a Yoji Shinkawa-illustrated steelbook cover and download code for Raiden’s Inferno Armor (which increases the number of throwing weapons Raiden can carry), is available exclusively at GAME stores. The second, a steelbook cover featuring a render of Raiden and download code for the Raiden Commando Armor (which allows him access to a larger number of projectile weapons), will be available through independent stores."

Yea, the steelbooks look sweet as hell too, especially the illustrated one. Too bad it doesn't sound like neither will be included with the Zavvi edition.

*I added the additional info to my post.

To me, this figure is much more desirable than the lamp. Zavvi gets my money this time. Now if the Euro could drop a little more...

Mathematically Correct.

If it's a Zavvi exclusive, wouldn't they have to have the steelbook?

naw, that edition doesn't have a steelbook...i think its just an incentive for pre-ordering the game from those other retailers

Zavvi will get both exclusive edition and the raiden steelbook for standard/exclusive pre-order since they mentioned independent stores.

So possibly a dumb question, I'd love to get the Xbox version of the zavvi limited edition version with the figure. But I wouldn't even be able to play the game right due to region issues? So really id just be paying for the sake of the figure? Never imported before, thanks for your patience and time :).

Really want to get the Zavvi edition with the GAME steelbook. Will game ship the steelbook to the US if you preorder from their site? I've never preordered with them but have heard that international orders don't always get the preorder bonuses....

Most Xbox 360 games released in Europe are region locked. PS3 games are not. So, chances are you would not be able to play the 360 version on a stock 360.

It usually goes by publisher. EA and Konami do tend to be region locked. Namco Bandai usually is. Ubisoft, on the other hand, never are. Etc.

Do you guys use your steelbooks? I really want to use mine I got for AC3 at best buy but I don't want to scratch it and it sort of bothers me that I have 2 cases for the same game especially when one is just sitting there empty. Also, it's a pain to get the disc out of the holder, I always feel like I'm going to crack the inner ring if the disc

If you don't want to keep it, you can eBay it for $15-20.

Well I do want to keep it, and I've never sold anything on eBay before. I don't understand how to figure out the shipping costs lol. I've tried selling stuff on eBay before and nobody ever bids on it and I always check what other ppl are selling the item for. I figure its because I have 0 ratings

I have lots of Steelbooks and I don't use them to store the games in them. I just buy them for collection purposes, I'm a sucker for Steelbooks. Also some of the Steelbooks is a b!tch to remove the game out when you try to push the middle plastic that holds it, don't want to risk breaking it.

What do you use to store the games that only come with steelbooks?

I have a ton of steelbooks and I actually use them. I'm not a collector that keeps things sealed or plan to resell anything years from now. If that ever changes, I'll just be clear about the conditions they are in. It is harder to remove the discs, but I've never had that much trouble with them.

Great tip depending on the type of Steelbook you are having trouble taking disc out feeling like it will break: Use fingernail clippers on the little plastic nubs protruding. For some reason the spindle in steelbooks have them I noticed. After I clipped those, it snaps in/out fine no worries of it being too lose or tight.

If the game comes separate from the steelbook, maybe just strip the case down as a backup for some other game, while keeping the manual with steelbook.
