Region blocked games on Steam

Recommended Posts

Some DLCs or games are affected by region blocks, although these can still be redeemed even if they were purchased from other store fronts, I did stumble upon some cases where this was not a viable option at all seeing as even the keys themselves were subject to some form of region blocking on their own.


I've been wondering how should such cases be treated?

The restrictions are usually listed in the Steam Database package entry (e.g. Final Fantasy XIII's Asia version) so the restriction could be briefly mentioned when needed with that page as the reference. The affected countries sometimes change over time so this is better than covering them directly on the wiki page.

And hopefully other stores won't be have restrictions so complex like steam's.


Besides, how could we handle games with different "page address" like here (where I had to list every demo install number)? Or like the America/Europe/Asia versions (with different appIDs) like FFXIII you metioned?
