Well I can when I am located in the USA. Doesn't say you have to be born there or even live there.

 

Oh I'm sure they would help me out...  :bouncy:

Bioshock Infinite still says $13.20 for me, was the price change reversed? I'm just going off the Skydrive list for reference.   

$9.99 was price match which ended

Well how else was I supposed to buy games from Amazon.com? :(

The point is: you're NOT supposed to.  So when a game actually enforces the T&C's you can't really complain about it.  It's not exactly a secret that Inversion is region restricted (avoid most Deep Silver games too).  It was still an epic price just for Enslaved.

If only Tony/Namco had included Star Trek instead of Inversion, this region locking discussion could have been avoided!

Well you guys sure have a lack of empathy. And that's pretty surprising on a forum that is based on the idea of paying the very least that is necessary for gaming joy. I mean, it's easy for you to say "deal with it, a$$hole" when even the base prices are dirt cheap compared to pretty much everywhere else - not fair, especially considering people in the US make four times more money. Don't get me wrong, I don't want to be mourned upon for getting payed an hour (it's actually pretty good, minimum wage is ), but I don't really see why I should pay more for something OR not get what I payed my hard-earned bucks for...

 

Edit: As a Financial Panther, you should really understand what I'm talking about.

I don't get your point ..I am not from the states and I always buy from Amazon with no problems at all

You expect EMPATHY on the Internet!?

 

1st, Region-locked games are NOT new and you knew the risks when buying from Amazon when you are not in the US. YOU ARE AT FAULT HERE.

2nd, NO ONE cares about your relatively minor problems. What do you expect us to do for you? Go to someone who is paid to listen to your problems like Amazon Support.

3rd, AGAIN YOU ARE AT FAULT! Read Amazon TOS.

 

You don't really see why you should pay more? Because you are not in the US and you we weren't suppose to purchase it anyway. It not a complicated concept. It like I can't buy cheaper games on a Russian Steam store because I DON"T LIVE IN RUSSIA!

 

Complain to the publisher, complain to Amazon, but this is ultimately an internet forum and no one care to listen to your petty problems when we all have our own lives to live.

Amazon DVG - My EC Sale Haul in Jan 2014:

 

EC Coupons left-over still = 5

 

Purchased For Myself:

01. GTA Trilogy (Steam)

02. Ace Patrol Bundle (Steam)

03. Dead Space 3: Awakened DLC (Origin)

04. NFS: Rivals (Origin)

05. Burnout Paradise: Bonus Vehicle DLC Pack (Origin)

06. The Bureau: XCOM Declassified (Steam)

07. Enslaved + Inversion bundle (Steam)

 

Purchased - might split up?:

08. Thief in the Shadows Pack (Steam)

 

Overall thoughts on the sale - GOOD:

For me, this sale was a bust, for most of the month....

...But, it really turned itself around once GTA Trilogy went on sale and it kinda just domino'ed from them, these last 2 weeks or so, w/ a handful of good deals for me.

Probably should've jumped on Marlow Briggs + NFS MW 2012 ALL DLC Bundle - but, no big deal.

Overall, it turned out good overall, in the end - thanks to the last 2 weeks or so.

:D

Edit: As a Financial Panther, you should really understand what I'm talking about.

I'm from the UK.  I also have a non working Inversion.  The difference is I understand that I'm buying a product not intended for sale to me.  As a non-American, you've bought an American game from an American site than only sells American games to Americans.  If you find away around that then great, but don't bug the Americans when you fail to do your research on what you're buying.  They don't have any ROW keys.  They don't need them because they're in America.  So they can't fix it for you.

 

I swear there are people out there that would walk into their local police station to report their crack dealer ripping them off. :D

Okay, let's assume for a moment that a friend of my friend's friend wasto buy the Enslaved bundle. He has got an Inverson key. Let's *cough* pretend he was going to activate it, which VPN would he hypothetically use in order to avoid getting banned?

 

Just pretending *cough*

All VPNs soft do the same thing, it doesn't matters which one he uses. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Afaik Steam doesn't even ban anymore, but gives timed suspensions (can't buy or use community).

 

From what I have read collectors do VPN activations all the time and no problems. (Getting versions from all regions just for +1 on library or something like that).

Try changing browsers.  I bought a bundle at the sale price.  Went back to buy another and it was showing the regular price.  Refreshed a few times and it wouldn't change.  Tried a different browser and it showed the sale price.
