Picked it up there today. The code is on their front page, but for easy copy/paste:

SUNNY-SAVER-20-PEC
EDIT: New Code:- 20SUM-MERSA-VINGS

Not sure when it expires.

Augmented edition is also available, obviously for a little more.

Just spoted this over on RPS: Deus Ex: Human Revolution Is Region Locked

Clarification has subsequently been posted on the Deus Ex forum

Quote:
Just to be clear to everyone the region lock is just for the retail BOX copies.. ie if you physically buy a box in the UK it will have the uk region code etc, if you buy a boxed copy in russia will be locked to russia, everywhere else is covered by a rest of world region (including poland).

Due to disc size limitations, the languages had to be split onto different masters (PCs dont have universal bluray drives yet so we couldnt put all on 1 disc this is why there is so much confusion)

Also all versions have ALL languages available. So even if you buy the English UK version, you can change the language to French, German etc whenever you want.. The size of the game meant we couldnt fit all languages onto the disc so you will just download the language pack for the game that is all..


Essentially, don't import a boxed copy from the UK or it will be worthless.

If you've already pre-ordered from the likes of OzGameShop then I'd strongly recommend contacting them to clarify if it will be a UK version they ship and if so requesting a cancellation.

The digital version from greenmangaming has been confirmed as ok (as are other digital versions).

Seems like a bit of a convenient excuse. I'm sure they could have simply had on the box what languages were included in that version, noting that others were available on download via steam. I didn't know that UK were the only country to speak English.

Yeah its funny, I'm pretty sure there's quite a few countries around the world that you know... SPEAK ENGLISH TOO. Even if some of them do have funny ideas about spelling and grammar.

That excuse is just marketing spin.

Ozgameshop has sent out a message that they are cancelling all orders and refunding the money for any version of Deus Ex on Pre-Order.

You know, for the first time in my life, I'm considering going over to the darkside on this one.

While its a bit of a bummer I'm really happy they did that, they could easily have just not been paying attention or stuck it with the customers fault if they didn't.

Email from OzGameshop

********************************
Hi

This is an update for our valued customers who have bought one of these titles:

Deus Ex Human Revolution Game PC
Deus Ex Human Revolution Limited Edition Game PC
Deus Ex Human Revolution Augmented Edition Game PC

These games use Steam to connect to servers which both register the product and allows on-line play, we now have information stating
that the publishers have issued a lock on the regions so that only the games distributed to that country/region will have access to use them.
Unfortunately we can't guarantee that the version of these title we will be stocking will be fully compatible with your region, we are therefore issuing you with a full refund.

We wanted to inform you straight away to firstly explain the situation and be open and honest with you, the refunds will appear back into the account you made the payment from within the next few working days.

Kind regards

Ozgameshop
Customer Services

********************************

Heard from them before I heard about the issue. Kudos ozgameshop!

Ok ordered my Augmented Edition for GMG today for a total of USD 40.

I've never used GMG before so can some one tell me when do they send you the steam key?

Would you believe they've now changed their minds about region locking.

Eidos Forums - View Single Post - Region Locks (see 1st page/post for summary of Q&As):NEW:Official- No lock for UK/Eur

I imagine they had quite a few orders from retailers (e.g. Ozgameshop and the like) wanting to cancel their stock orders, which made them do a rethink.
