I don't really know why some publishers do this. It's stupid.

I don't know if it might have something to do with the sales currently in place. A game might be discounted in NA but not Europe and Steam wants to prevent people from region hopping to get deals. Just a theory since the message says "due to regional price differences" my guess is that at full price it would have been possible to send the same game.



Signature goes here!

This region blocking started a few years ago because games are a lot cheaper in countries like Russia and other Eastern countries, and people bought games from there and "gifted" to people in other countries in exchange of in-game items or other things that were a lot more expensive, but still cheaper than the games in those countries.

They simply did it to block that grey market.

I also want to thank my Secret Santa very much! I love that selection. You are awesome!



I still have some Steam keys to gift, so don't be surprised if you get some via Steam chat

Very big thanks to my Secret Santa for those awesome gifts this year. You rock!



Thank you to my Secret Santa! I'm always so grateful to see the generosity from our little community.

Ok, Christmas has passed (I hope you all had a great day), and I want to make sure that everything is alright and that Santa has come to visit you all.

There are three Tiny Tims that haven't left a comment regarding their Secret Santa. I don't know if that's because he hasn't visited them yet (there are too many flights this time of the year and maybe he's been stuck in an air traffic jam) or because they're too busy enjoying their gifts.

Could @forest-spirit , @Rhonin the wizard and @WoodenPints come by and leave a comment, please?
