region restricted
Bought a skyrim on sale on a game.co.uk . About the restriction (only for UK there wasn`t even a single word). They refused to somehow help me, and sent me to develepores, I know it`s a dead end. Meyby I can do something else?

Latvia is in the EU. What region is it saying you are?

Usually if you are "refused" help they give a reason. What was the reason?

Yes its legit. They should allow to sell within the EU though.

hmmmm did you run a virus scan? since you bought it and nothing appears fishy in your banking account maybe there is a virus or malware on your computer preventing you to access

They say they don`t guarante that the games they sell will activate in other countries than UK. It`s lame, because it`s nothing been written un product url, or when I checked out (used the guest chekout, didn`t register)

no, it`s not that, bought it when I was at work, tryed activate it there and at home, it`s the same.

wait you used a guess check out? this might be a long shot but usually registered users usually get their products to activated correctly

but then again that doesn't make any sense because you are from Latvia and you managed to bought the game without any problems

it could be they put a region lock code in all the games they sell to prevent piracy or you have been seriously ripped off

and since you didn't registed....we need to know the terms and conditions for that site

also i managed to get this:https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q=region+restriction+skyrim

it's just basically a lot of sites talking about a smiliar topic to this one hopefully you can find a clearer answer somewhere

Only thing I know, it`s really sucks. Well I`ll be in UK in next month, than I`ll activate it... still wanted to play it, but I`ll wait.

Next time when you see any sentence like that on the sales ... consider the seller a scam-scumbag and best ignore the offer. I will not say STEAM always has the "best offer" ... BUT, STEAM will NOT "try" to scam you.

Also, I do NOT think "wait" to activate your game is a good idea ... what you should have done already is to contact and seek lawyers and take actions to the court. Truth is, you HAVE Been Scammed ... why are you still sitting there and not giving the scammers the punishment?
