Why? Because Capcom are a bunch of bags who still think GFWL is a good thing and GFWL won't let you buy games outside of it "supported countries".

IMO region restrictions are like saying "please pirate our game because we don't give a damn about your stupid non-USA/UK/etc country and don't want your money".

Mr. Moderator if you are kind enough please let me know exactly who do I need to send a strongly worded letter so I can legally get my games from steam.

if there's no one who can help, you can always turn to those trusty torrent/rapidshare/megashare/ultramegadeliciouslyepicshare sites who I'm sure won't turn you down because you are not from some specific country.

Get someone to gift it to you, get in on a group buy or learn to use a proxy or a VPN.

Buying through a VPN doesn't work on steam.

Heh yeah, same here in Thailand. Can't buy...
As well as some of Capcom's games like SF4, Dead Rising 2 but Resident Evil 5 is available here.

Also I can't buy another game (Not by Capcom), DiRT 3... It also uses GFWL.

WTF?

Street Figher IV isn't available in China but SUPER Street Fighter IV AE IS?

Doesn't make sense.

Also this means I can't get a 10% discount.

What's the point of getting the original SF4 for the 10 percent discount? You're forking out more money than that is necessary!

How much is the game (in whatever currency) anyway? I also can't see it on Steam (Serbia) but I'd like to compare price between Steam and local retailers (who'd probably go for a 50eur cash grab)
This really sucks from Capcom's side, using a system that prevents huge amount of players from enjoying the game. And then they'll blame pirates...

i realy feel sory for people who live in counrtrys that gfwl dont support! so you guys you must buy for D2D or retail. I live in Greece and it is supported by gfwl but i still prefer buying games retail so i will get it retail. so calm down and preorder the game from d2d or buy it retail.
