Re: Call of Duty 2 - where to buy english version?

You mean Black Ops 2? For console or PC? If for PC, is it not available on Steam? I have ordered the PS3 version from Amazon UK and expect delivery early next week (not dispatched as of yet though ).

Hi Paddy

I should have been clearer, sorry.

Black ops 2 for ps3 exactly . I guess I should order online in that case from amazon? Is there definitely no where locally?

http://alcom.ch/games.php?waszeig=d&...3858&system=S3 Alcom sometimes gets UK versions, and you don't have to pay customs since it's a swiss website.

You'll always be sure of an english version if you order from amazon.co.uk, the games are also cheaper than almost anywhere in Switzerland, even with shipping.

I've also noticed they bundle the games in packets valued just under the threshold that would get you a fee, although it could have been a coincidence.

Re: Call of Duty 2 - where to buy english version?

You could also try amazon.de, as long as you make sure you're ordering the English version.

Here's another question along the same lines--what is this PAL thing? If my Xbox is from the US, do I HAVE to buy US-version games, or will UK-version or European-version games work on it?

Softridge usually have a bunch of imports - they do have outlets in the mainstation and Stadelhofen.

While the price may seem better online (play, amazon, etc) I am happy to pay a few bucks more, if that means I can get started right away - still have bad memories haunting my postman because play.com would take ages!

Re: Call of Duty 2 - where to buy english version?

CornishPastry Glad to hear WOG worked out for you.

Megsandbacon, there are two issues with the pal thing. If you are connected with hdmi or component and getting an HD signal then you don't really have to worry about PAL vs ntsc for the signal. The big issue with the US xbox (I have one) is that some games are region locked and will not work. Electronic arts games are usually locked. Rockstar and some others are not. The trick is finding out if the game is region locked or not before you buy it. I have bought some games here that I know will work because I tried them out or found out before buying them. Otherwise you have to buy the games from the US or wherever you can get a US region game. google is your friend for determine if a game is region locked. Also downloadable content is region locked as well. So if you bought a game here and tried to download an add on using a us xboxlive account the game wont recognize it.

Re: Call of Duty 2 - where to buy english version?

This was posted on another thread, but play-asia.com lists which games are region free, and which are region locked. I'm not sure how it works for Xbox, but for my ps3, I have an account EU that I use normally, and an account US (with an american credit card) to buy DLC for US games.

No.......because xbox is wack


There is an xbox thread somewhere.......but its not epic.


Tbh most of the xbox users post on the PS3 thread, as the same things apply when we do game reviews etc....
