I am not endorsing them nor am I posting a link but has anyone ever bought a product like SHIII(that wasnt even out yet) oversees and had good success? I heard a couple days ago a friend of someone got SHIII in Hong Kong. Thanks

That was my friend, he says it's playing fine and he's accumulated about 25,000 tons. The legality is questionable at best, as far as he can tell it's not a BETA. He bought the game for the equivelant of $20, I think he will probably buy it here too just to compare if it is the full version when he gets back sometime later this month.

I still wouldn't trust it -- sounds like pirates (as indicated above.)

The official release date by Ubisoft is the 17th I believe. We will get it a day earlyer in the states but thats the earlyest date I know of. Anything before that IS PIRACY!

I saw something of the sorts on Ebay. The person was selling SHIII games for about 20 bucks, but the catch was that no manual or box came with it to cut down on shiping cost...Ya right lol..He was from hong Kong I belive..

I checked back on the listing a few days later and it was gone. Apparently ebay deleted the auction, they must have known it was fish to.

My vote is the game should go to the countries in order that they entered WW2!

That guy on eBay though offers to include the manual and box for an extra 2 bucks and taking into account the auction ending plus 2 weeks for shipping it's well after release.

I already have mine pre-ordered from EB Games so I'm not going to be buying it there, but I once did buy a game called "Capitalism" from the same seller and it was a fully legal version, confirmed after registration with the publisher even.

Since I am from relatively small country I checked with my local dealer who confirmed the release date as 17 th but he will have a game in store at 21st, 22nd.
I guess I better stay away from this forum for the period of those few days.

Please Ask your friend for the details of where he bought the game, any address he may have etc and PM Ubi Soft - While they may not be able to do anything yet they would still probably appreciate the information on Pirate activity.

I hate Pirates if it were not for Pirates and IDIOTS who buy from the we would have a much more varied and active games industry.

If you know of a pirate, even in your local market, do the right thing and inform the developer and the police, it is a crime and they are thieves.

Sorry you mate is a criminal too for buying stolen goods, I hope he realises that.
