Hi guys

I live in Australia and am planning on purchasing the IL2 CoD from Just Flight as a download. Will this create any problems for me in activation?

Should be okay (I'm in Oz too). Ask Just Flight before purchasing to "be sure".

After reading this article, I'm thinking it will be my first ever purchase on Steam.

hey mate

I posed the question to them and they replied that, because its a download, there won't be any issues like there could be should it be a region-coded DVD. However I've heard rumours around the traps of Steam restricting your activation based on your location ie. like region-locking which means we have to buy the overpriced Aussie version instead of the cheaper US version if we want to activate it.

As for Steam...mate, I buy stuff off there all the time and I actually like Steam - I've lost a hard drive and all I had to do to recover my games (that I purchased off Steam) was to redownload!! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Sounds good. It will be nice to bypass Ubi altogether on this one, and I must admit to a sort of admiration for the opportunities Steam is giving to smaller development companies.
