    Anyone getting this when trying to purchase it?

    I am in Canada, but that shouldn't matter because I can buy it from Steam on a Canadian PC. I have a Canadian / American account on my xbox account and neither can get it.

    I am thinking because I am on the west coast I won't get it until the morning? Morning being about 10am my time, which is when I usually expect stuff like this.

    Anyone know if it's going to be region locked or US only?

    UK too, most likely the store listing is up before the game is live.

    Okay, yup waiting for this thing to come up then. $1.99 for a 1000 gamerscore, I'm down.

    It's 2 dollars? wow, I wish more indie devs would price their games accurately like that. I'm wondering why it isn't available.

    I (and a couple others) have tweeted the dev letting him know it's not available, he did say it'll be available in the UK so I'm sure it'll be available in Canada as well.

    I checked his Twitter more and he is in communication wth ID@XBOX about it. Apparently another game (Unepic) is suffering from the same problem so it's probably an XBOX related problem and not the dev.

    I don't know the game, but from MS I know, they put it up per Country. So it can be that France sees it earlier then another and other way around (but you should asume UK is more important then FR, but € is bigger then £). Germany bans certain games like Dead Rising.

    I buyed in a Dutch Store (Mediamarkt) my X1 before MS official sold it in NL, so needed another way to buy from Digital Xbox Store and took Germany (as I'm partly German). Buyed DR3 on disk and coudn't find the DLC for it few weeks later. Then started to use Ireland as they are the only country that has English & €.

I've asked a couple devs about their games and if they plan to release them in more regions and they said Germany isn't worth it because of USK being quite expensive and MS is not allowed to sell games in Germany without the rating. The dev of Cubot replied exactly that.

    Changing the console's region is easy but you will need prepaid cards for different countries. I couldn't even use the € on my profile/account in France or the Netherlands, I had to use a new prepaid card to pay for downloads. I'd suggest creating a profile for the UK, it's the easiest way I've encountered. You need to fake some info but it works and MS doesn't care about the fake info it seems. I've used that profile for years now for purchases in the UK.

    Ah geez... 2020 and it's still not available in Germany. While the USK has gotten a lot more lenient regarding censoring and banning games during this last generation, apparently they're a bunch of greedy wankers now.

    I did just successfully buy it in the Ireland store, though. Used my credit card as usual; no prepaid cards needed.
