Remember kids cags, Don't do that. ;)

 

Interesting... I would guess that they're specifically talking about hacked/exploited/stolen keys that have been made public rather than small-scale key dumps, publisher key giveaway lists, etc.


Selling Indie Gala bundles.
Do you buy most IG bundles? PM me or add me on Steam to ask about an IG subscription today! :D

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

 

Yeah, with these final deals, I'd say this Editor's Choice sale ended up alright overall.

O:) and why would I waste my time reading when someone like you can summarize it 

and  =; again I wasn't talking to you so stop embarrassing yourself 

I'm not at all embarrassed by your lack of forum etiquette but I do appreciate you looking out for my emotional well being. :)

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.

1. Oh, so I did? I didn't know that I did know, SORRY. Amazon doesn't say anywhere that it is regionally locked, check it out if you don't believe me.

2. Nothing, apart from not being an a$$hole, or maybe giving a hint what I should be doing to get Inversion, since you know so much about these well-known things. Sorry to say that you failed at both.

3. Neither the product page nor TOS actually says I must be in the US to activate the product. So there are real life scenarios where this would indeed be a problem and I would be in right (simple example, buy in US, go to EU, won't activate).

 

So what are we even talking about?

Well you guys sure have a lack of empathy. 

Breaking the rules comes with risk. You got burned. Get over it.

 

Americans on this board routinely buy from international sellers, doing the exact same thing you did. You know what happens when they get burned? They man up, warn others about it, and consider it taking one for the team.

 

If you can't afford to lose, don't gamble.

 

Amazon doesn't say anywhere that it is regionally locked, check it out if you don't believe me.

 

Amazon only sells to Americans, why would they need to indicate if something is region locked? Everything they sell works for Americans.

1. Oh, so I did? I didn't know that I did know, SORRY. Amazon doesn't say anywhere that it is regionally locked, check it out if you don't believe me.

 

It says on the store page, in bold: "Note: Currently, this item is available only to customers located in the United States and who have a U.S. billing address."

 

To then state it is region locked would be redundant to their intended customer base.  And anyone else who had an issue with it would actually be raising a self incriminating issue.

 

 

 

3. Neither the product page nor TOS actually says I must be in the US to activate the product. So there are real life scenarios where this would indeed be a problem and I would be in right (simple example, buy in US, go to EU, won't activate).

 

 

You need an american payment address to buy the product so this wouldn't happen to say a holidaying european, because they wouldn't be able to legitimately have bought it.  It would only affect an American who bought a game then permanently moved away from America.  With that kind of life upheaval, they might not be sweating a $1.25 game they apparently didn't care enough about to activate when they bought it.

Looks like EC is pretty much over, so the obligatory haul list that looks very nearly like everyone else's list:

 

Defense Technica

Ace Patrol Pack

Marlow Briggs

Final Exam

Burnout Paradise DLC

Enslaved+Inversion

 

Company of Heroes 2 DCE (glitch)

 

6/13 EC credits used - needed more cheap stuff. 

 

Hi, is the enslaved/inversion bundle link in the editor's choice page not working for anyone else?

 

Thanks.

I'm sorry, I'm too much manned up for even taking one. That's not my style. I do everything I have to to get what I paid for. That's much more like manning up in my vocabulary.

 

...but not Americans on holiday or temporarily moved to other countries? Sounds like a tiny bit of discrimination to me. I never said I don't have a legitimate US billing address either...

It's not discrimination, it's just a region locked key. It sucks you're in this situation, but really, it's tough shit in the end. Whenever I buy from companies or sellers not based in my country, I always check to make sure the key will activate for me. It's pretty common to see. 

 

Plus, Inversion is a reportedly shitty game. You'd be wasting your time playing it anyway. There are plenty of non region locked games you could play. Just trade Inversion for a buck in the trading forums, and it'd be like you bought just Enslaved for a buck fifty, which is hard to complain about.

Well, I always check the Amazon page for DRM and everything (even the Steam page) but it never said anything about a region locked key. Never ever heard or would have thought that this kind of nonsense even exists (why does it even exist, again?), so I don't know where I should have checked to make sure...

 

The problem is, Inversion is what I bought the pack for, didn't even know anything about the other one. But thanks.

Everyone, please make sure that what you have to say is either nice or constructive (maybe even both). If it's neither, you can always consider shutting up - and I don't refer to CAG solely, but any other form of communication, including IRL.

I don't know why the big argument...having a US address doesn't Mean you live in the states I got shipping and billing addresses in the states and in the UK and In China (Many International shipping services provider can give you an address so it is not  a big deal)

Most of video games sellers all over the Globe include whether the game is region locked or not
