    Solution Found: Buy Dark Souls (Steam) when "not available in your region"

    Post by ChizFreak on Sun Aug 12, 2012 6:48 pm

    Yep, I found a guy of my country in the steam forums and he helped and told me how to buy Dark Souls, even though your country may be blocked and you can't see it in the Steam store; AND be able to play online through GFWL just fine.

    You will need:


    1. An alternative method to get the game, either import it (retail copy) or buy it in a digital website where they sell Steam cd-keys. A good and reliable example of this is GreenManGaming. They sell all kind of games, including steam-based keys, after you buy a game, they email you the cd-key which you can use in Steam to unlock your copy.
    2. A Games for Windows Live account, which states that you're NOT in a blocked country. You can do this, by, for example, creating a Hotmail account, and then using that hotmail to sign up in GFWL. Remember to say in both accounts (hotmail and GFWL) that you're from the same not blocked country.
    3. Guts, to kill every demon you find in Lordran with a keyboard. I will try when it's launched if I can connect my PS3 Dualshock and map it to the Xbox 360 controller to play with it.

    He told me he already done this with lots of games. Now this is the harsh way to do it.

    The other way to buy and play games that Steam blocks in their store from you, it's buying it before it gets blocked (basically per-ordering it).

    Steams blocks most games in the correspondent countries some days before launching them, so look up if the games appears some time before as pre-order. It will be the only chance to buy it without doing these things. Though I believe that to play online you will need to create a GFWL account with the steps above.

    I'd like to hear if your solution works, in case I end up reconsidering purchasing the game.
    I think I will pass for now, they clearly don't want our money. :|

    Is it Microsoft's decision to sell/not sell in your country? Why wouldn't they want to sell in your country? Doesn't make sense. Maybe your own countries laws are preventing it?
