I want to buy ACII in USA but I'm from Europe (Poland). Does this matter? I mean sometimes games bought in different regions don't work and it is possible in here since it has this ridiculous DRM. Has anyone heard anything about problems in this matter?

I would recommend not buying the game in the US. Besides the chances of trouble with a PAL/NTSC conflict, the EU editions of the game actually contain more than the US ones.

Basically, you'd be losing out if you purchased from the US, especially if you already live in the EU.

Why do you want to buy the game from the US? Whats wrong with the Polish version? Or indeed English version which would defo work and then you wont have any probelms. seems like allot of hassle over nothing IMO.

PS3 any version: Region Free
Xbox360 any version: So far ACI and ACII are free region. (Most if not all UBISOFT games are free region)

First: I don't like the polish version because it's translated.
Second: It's half the price of Polish version in US and shipping is free since I'll be purchasing more things.
Third: I forgot to mention that I want to buy PC version (I thought that mentioning DRM was clear enough).

The PC game is region free - so your free to buy any PC version you like, same as with any PC title..

The Online Services Platform - [drm] is linked to your ubi.com account - that's all, not where you live.. so it does not matter which country you buy the game from, as long as you buy it. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

So if your happy importing the game, you will be fine.

You think I didn't check on that? I'm not buying this game if it's more expensive than 15$. It's not worth that much to me. I hate this crappy DRM.

Hey, sorry. I only explained why I want to ship it from US. It's for 15$ there. Don't be oversensitive.
