After the joke of Silent Hunter 5 not being for sale in the u.k. through steam and even being taken off steams search and store pages......C&C4 looks to be the same!

Its on the best seller list and has a store page.

You cant purchase it or even see a price!

Is this just in the u.k. again?

Will I have to buy it elsewhere again?

Is this going to be the norm for the uk side of steam with games never being allowed on release days unlike every other digital download site in the uk?

Give us our games like everyone else gets em damn it!

Yer its now down as the 19th here but still no price.

From all the reviews ive just been reading it shouldnt even carry the C&C title in its name according to those who are reviewing it anyways.

Lotsa unhappy people who thought it would be in the same game type as the others!

im actually pretty excited to see a new type of game actually. A different RTS as opposed to the new ones...

However from what ive read i didnt like the tech tree unlock thing.

Also they say that there are few unit options as opposed to any kind of RTS game...

I reckon they could not do any preorder deal, hence to no price or something.

Yeah it appears D2D got the pre-order bundle rights...

I just hope my pre order items work on the steam version :D

What in hell is going an now. Now I had looking forword to the 16 and when thatr date comes it was not posible to buye it. And then some hours after they chcned the reles on stem to the 18. And now it have no cooldowns annymore. But we can still not buye it lol not even a price, well the euro price is a joke annyway as they ust set the price in euro the same as in dollar like this: If a game cost 40Dollar whell then it also cost 40 euro even that is not corect and fear for people at all.

And now they cant eve reles games, but they can make a side for people to get mad aboutm its seams that they is ust asking for problem and angry people. Well this is starting to be a big FOLPP and SILLY. I dont see way people is accepting this at all. lol

well it looks like the reasion why its not on steam is because EA are trying to up the price in other regions

go to the EA website and it has in the AUS side CC4 for 99.99 AUD but a special discont to 79.99 AUD
steam's listings has it as 49.99 or what not USD
I cant see how they can justify a digital copy of the same game to be at 2 prices for the exact same game just because you live in some other place
we all have to download it (if we get it online) why is there more then one price for it?

If they do not launch yet in a certain region, adjust the cooldown timer. This is utterly disrespect for foreign customers.

same in germany. sucks. not even talking about the fact that USD and EUR prices are the same, which is like 20% more for EUR users.

I think it's only going live on the 19th, still no buy functionality here.v
Please open a support ticket, everyone effected. Let's let them hear about it, cause they obviously are not reading it.

Before someone begins about respecting the launch date, the launch cooldown timer ran out yesterday evening and NO information is provided when we are going to be able to buy it.

Ironic, half the net is screaming about how C&C4 sucks, we cannot even buy it.
