And it's about AU$37 if you split a US 4-pack!

Some sad news... It seems that I am no longer able to take advantage of this workaround. Might be because of my replacement card. Anyone else having trouble?

:( - So my request still stands...

 

" Hey does anyone who's able to buy US steam games from the US site with US prices want to buy AVP for me and I'll paypal them the money?

 

It should be about $56 or so AUD.

 

 

Cheers. "

Well, I've tried everything (including making a new US paypal account).

 

Looks like I'll be torrenting this until I can obtain a proper copy.

The work around doesn't seem to be working anymore for me either :'(

 

Isn't there some website were you give them some money and they give you some temp credit card details for this sort of thing?

This could be a possible avenue: https://www.discoveregiftcard.com/

 

I have no need at the moment as I can purchase without restriction from Blizzard for SC2 and D3 and I will most likely get a pre-order bonus in-store for DoW2: Chaos (Steams offer sucks!)

I'm looking into this right now.

 

 

Doubt it's going to work if I'm not in the US though. I'll update soon.

 

 

 

Seems to be getting stuck on a blank page after I enter my details.

Yeah definitely interested to see how you go with Discover.

 

I just pre-ordered DoW2:CR from the THQ US Store using a similar trick to the CCW method by setting Country, State and Zip as United States, California and 90001. Best PO offer as it gives you the game + Saints Row 2 + Librarian Wargear as well.

Doesn't seem to work at all.

 

Just loads a blank page on Firefox and IE.

 

 

 

I give up.

Thats what I have been doing, set an address in California like beverly hills or something 90210 is the only US postcode I know :P

 

So does that method still work?

Steam does not work for me.

THQ US Store works for me.

Steam doesnt work for me anymore either.

 

Never actually needed to use a real address for it, just have a 10 digit phone number and a 5 digit post code, you could leave your town and address as they were and it would work. Now it doesnt. Had to pay 65 for AVP (which so far has been worth it anyway)

I bought AvP from the US store before they changed it. Guess I got lucky. However now I want to pre-order Metro 2033, but we get the +$30 "aussie tax" slapped on top so would like to get it via the US store if possible.

I know aye!

 

Gamers need to get a campaign going against these guys who think they can charge us the same as retail boxed versions for the downloadable ones. It's ridiculous!

 

Though nuke it'll likely still be cheaper via play-asia or something.

Hey mate, are you able to see if you can gift a copy of AVP my way? PLEASE?

 

 

I'll send you money if it works.

 

Cheers.
