Only North America giveaways, Why????

The last giveaway, Nail'd, is restricted to North American members only. That's saddening. And I hope it won't always be like that. We, people living in other countries, are trying to do our best to contribute to the site. And I think lotteries should concern us as well. However, if it has to be like that, I won't be insistent (but  I am always ready to pay for the cargo cost if I ever win a game, I think you should take this point in consideration smile).

out of all the contests and giveaways we've had, this is the fisrt to be restricted to a specific region, and that's mainly because the developer is providing us with the game instead of us funding it ourselves (and since it will be an ESRB-rated game, and the dev is providing it, it has to stay in ESRB-rating territories), so we kinda have to play by their rules on this one. All of our other contests have been multi-regional, though (and we've had a ton of those)

Thanks for the reply. I hope the following ones won't be restricted.

There have been several "open to the world" contests on the site but, as Jay has said, when a publisher is the one giving away the game they do so in the territory at which they'll release it.

Couldn't have said it better myself Jay. I don't think you guys realize how many giveaways we do over the course of the last couple years and all have been worldwide except for this one.

LOL I actually don't win everything...

 

And as Jay said, this giveaway being NA only was out of my controll, and is due to this giveaway being provided by the publisher. The game won't release outside of NA until a later date, and I believe that may be part of the reason as well.

I'll work on getting a EU copy for when it releases there!! Wish me luck.
