Tarnicus: Amazon have finally taken it one step further(besides regionally restricted codes) to block international digital purchases from their US store. It took them long enough!! :P This could be circumvented but I'm calling it quits with them after 130 or so purchases.

I don't know if this was posted before, but there's a BioShock Triple Pack including 1, 2, and Infinite at 80% off right now ($12 USD for all 3 games) at Steam. 13 hours left as of this posting.

I haven't tried a AAA fps title since... maybe Doom 3? I thought this might be a good opportunity to get caught up on what fps are like these days.

Thanks for the heads up. Hadnt bought anything from them for a longtime - and lets be honest, there past few sales have been pretty..... ordinary..:)


For clarification does this only apply to games that arent meant for Australia?. Or *all* digital purchases including eBooks and apps?

I don't purchase eBooks or apps from Amazon, so I can't say, other than I assume that it does. Most likely they have smartened up and have their shopping cart system detect non-US credit card numbers. I have successfully purchased NA region-locked codes before and given them as gifts to others, so this is a change in Amazon's system in the last month or so. It has detected that my CC is from Australia as my er US address (McDonalds) used to get me by just fine.
