Others on here having same issue as I did.  Got Skyrim from BF for 25 - received it and it is the EU version. 

 

Happening with other games as well.  Means DLC compatibility, mod support, and patch compatibility are all questionable.  Also this really offends me as I only buy MERICAN.

 

Amazon is a clusterf*ck this year.

This is real, and not just from Black Friday. I got the UK version of Doom earlier this year from them when it was $20. Since I don't plan to buy DLC for it I didn't care, but it required a separate install from my rented Redbox install, which was a US disc.

Hmm I didn't know this. I'll ask for a US version since my skyrim is EU as well.

I bought the Bloodborne guide months ago and the US version has a code to redeem the sweet rune dynamic theme...they sent the UK version which didnt include the free theme. I had to contact the guide publisher to get a code.

Cluster Fuck because they aren't 100% accurate 100% of the time? If this is what you consider a cluster Fuck then I'd hate to see how you'd react to a real problem.

It's amazon, just contact their customer service and they will fix it. I don't see how this deserves it's own thread, especially in the section for DEALS.

This is pretty helpful actually.  I guess Skyrim orders are backordered until late Dec. 2016.  With return hassle, we'll all be playing Skryim in Jan. 2017.

If you ordered from an Amazon seller other than Amazon itself and received a foreign version you can use this link to file a complaint:

You'll also not be able to trade it in to shops, or have a much harder time doing so.

Are you sure you didn't order from a third-party seller?

 

I swear, most people don't even realize that's a thing. They just smash dat buy button and don't even look at what they're buying.

fwiw, ive trade in several EU games without much problem. if i take them to best buy i remove the outer cover, but gamestop usually doesnt care, and for whatever reason it scans fine there. ironically if you tried trading it to amazon it would be instant rejection.

Yup, sent me the European version of Doom a couple months back. I just asked for a replacement and it was cool.

I'd usually be complaining this isn't a deal but actually good to know, especially considering that a some portion will be given as gifts.

That being said, serves you right for giving money to Amazon.

IS THIS A DEAL? NO. THEN DOES IT NEED TO BE POSTED IN THE DEALS SECTION? NO.
