That's a massive sale...most of which doesn't seem to be available in the UK.

I am assuming they will be because Of Orcs and Men is currently showing as not available in the UK and I'm sure I have seen our friends across the pond pointing out that this is not available in the US.

Actually ignore that...it seems to be a massive Euro sale...damn you Brexit! laugh
This has been one of those unicorn titles that has always eluded me. I guess I ought to simply pick up a disc copy (if one can even be found). Was there a licensing nightmare or similar with this title? I remember the devs being real dicks about the copy protection on the PC version.

According to Play Asia, it was not released in the States. It is only £5 used over here. I would be happy to ship one out to you but you need a PAL or Jap console.

SUGGESTION

Is there any way the pricing can be adjusted to a default setting?

I appreciate that it’s only one click but every week I have to change the setting from America to UK pricing.

I would’ve thought that if I was UK based the prices should be automatically on the local currency.

Depends on your browser settings. When I browse at work on a virtual machine, I do have to click every time (and it's normal), but when I browse at home, I don't have to click every time. Prices are always in Canadian dollars. You know, cookies.

I was just looking at "Of Orcs and Men" and it has Back Compat, which means it should be playable on Xbox One, which ignores region specific locks for backwards compatible titles. If you have an Xbox One but not a PAL Xbox 360 you should still be able to play with BC, if you pick up the PAL disc. If I am wrong, someone let me know.
Warmest regards, TwistedTB.

I thought it was on a case by case basis, and usually digitally owned games only.

Last time Of Orcs and Men was on sale, tried buying it on my old PAL Xbox 360(living in USA atm), but that didn't work, didn't see the game for sale. I guess it would be possible to use a VPN and set it to some european IP, buy the game from MS marketplace, and the download it for Xbox One?

Call of Juarez: Gunslinger (and the Cartel, but that has a physical copy) seems to have been delisted from Xbox / Playstation / Steam.
I work on achievements. Life sanity tip: don't work on achievements.

If anyone has a moron's guide to doing this, and knows that it works, I'd like to know.
