I didn't know if I was going to get BL. But a friend already did and he wanted me to have it. I convinced him to bottle the files and bring them over. My concern was if my pc would run it. I dropped the files and he logged in to his own Steam id. Lo and Behold, my machine ran it and it looked good.

Price being what it was I didn't think much on it, especially as I had rounded up some like minded dudes for a pack.(I didn't wait I just bought it. I knew I'd have takers)

That was my try before buy, but if that were to happen at this late time... umm, second and third thoughts and hedging and carring on. Actually I'd probably be spending more time in l4d2. That never went astray.

Never did get a response from 2K on availability in Australia of DLC via Steam - unless you count the automated response system emails from 2 of the 3 emails addresses I sent to which promised to respond within 72 hours. Of course they may just be busy, which is why it's taken them 272 hours and counting...

Funny how "publishers" are really bad at telling potential customers when/where they'll be, err, publishing something.

It's not like they're in the publishing business or... wait a minute...

Well what do you know, a real person has finally answered my email - only took 20 days (that's some overseas lag):

Subject: Availability of Borderlands DLC for steam based players in Australia

Good Morning,

A number of my friends have made me aware that Borderlands (PC) was recently removed from sale through Steam for Australian and New Zealand residents. While I consider the whole mess very poor form on 2k Games' part, I don't wish to labour on the point of what obviously came down to a business decision I have no control over, and recognising a satisfactorily explanation is unlikely due to commercial in confidence arrangements.

I however purchased Borderlands (PC) via Steam as a pre-order and am thus playing and enjoying the game immensely even though I live in Australia. What has me significantly concerned presently is whether the pending DLC will be available to me through Steam now that the game itself is no longer available to purchase in my region?

I attempted to direct this question to a 2K Games email address for Australia however the link on the international site for Australia points to http://localhost/uk/contact which obviously does not help. I thus have been required to resort to directing this query to the European & US email links I could locate in the hope that you would respond or forward this query to the appropriate area for a response.

I look forward to a prompt response that restores a semblance of faith that 2K Games are somewhat considerate of their customers.

Regards.......TI
Now to sit down for another 20 day wait.

Well Thermal, both the game and DLC are available again now in Australia (with steam), with a 30% markup compared against the rest of the world through Steam.

LOLs at them just looking into it now when its already released and put up and they just don't know.

And they're now going to get a further query regarding DLC pricing and SecureROM before my money gets spent.
