  1. Never bought games on Amazon before. Can these be activated in my steam account, or how is the download handled? If so, I’m buying them right away!

    Thanks 🙂

      • I am afraid that this amazon.com offer is only for USA. Actually AFAIR all digital downloads on amazon.com are for USA.

    • Within their individual pages, everything but Victoria II requires a Steam account. I bought Human Revolution last November through Amazon. All you do is go to your Games page to copy and paste the key into Steam. No problem with activation. I am not sure about regional restrictions, but the last few Amazon sales were US-only.

      • I think that “Swords of the Stars” is a non-steam version too. But numbers from 1 to 4 are steam keys.

        Also some steam games might be regionally restricted. So even if one not from USA can manage to buy them, it’s not obvious that they will be reedemable on european Steam. This was the case with 2K games like Civ V and Mafia 2 a while ago.

  2. I’m a regular reader of a certain british gaming site, and lots of brits and europeans are able to get these amazon deals just by using a fake us address. They’ll activate on Steam no problem. Go for it!

      • hah! a reply! and i was just feeling foolish having not noticed the age of this post, with the sale long done. I feel a little better now!

        I’ve never used a proxy myself, but I think you’re right about them being the best way to get region locked games. Amazon specifically though doesn’t seem to check too closely, making a proxy unnecessary.

      • I try my hardest to always reply to every post. You took time to post your feelings and it is only fair to respond in kind. 🙂

        The fact that customers have to jump through loops to get the best deals is ridiculous. Other companies should look to GOG as the benchmark in how to handle things.
