Hey cags, I'm just wondering if anyone has experienced receiving European PEGI versions of games from Amazon recently. 

 

First, I received the PEGI version CoD Infinite Warfare. Then just recently I was sent the PEGI versions of Nier Automata, twice - the second to replace the first one.

 

Their CS was nice enough to provide me with store credit for the trouble, but this lack of quality assurance has left me going elsewhere for my future purchases.

Was it from a third party or amazon as seller?  I doubt amazon would do it with their own stock, but I've had that happen with an infinity figure 3rd party fulfilled by amazon.  There was an Amazon stock sticker over the UPC.  So if the seller puts that sticker on before they ship it to amazon, that's on them, but if amazon knowingly put labels over upcs like that, that's an issue.  Does anyone know how 3rd party merchandise gets labeled at the amazon warehouse?

I've heard that some (but not all) 3rd party sellers on Amazon are shipping European versions of some games, but I'm surprised that you got copies like these directly from Amazon as the seller. Pretty disappointing, but I'd just return any EU copies if I got them.

These were items sold by Amazon directly, not fulfilled using 3rd party stock. The PEGI versions I got had stickers on the back maybe to cover up the European barcode?

This discussion pops up every so often, so it does seem to be happening.

I wanted to platinum Steins;Gate on PS3 since I loved it on Vita. I ordered it on Amazon FROM Amazon and I was sent the EU version. I didn't mind getting it, cause I can still platinum it either way. But yes, I thought it was wierd at time, but I didn't mind it. It is happening.

None of amazon's new stock should have those 3rd party stickers over the UPCs as far as I have experienced, so either they are now merging stock with 3rd party stock or are sourcing from bad suppliers.
