Steam - Left 4 Dead 2 50% Off - $24.99USD ($27AUD)

Posted By: blondieo, posted 2010/03/24 11:27
Steam's midweek madness sale this week is Left 4 Dead 2 for 50% off the usual price.

Was $49.99 now $24.99 USD

This is the american uncensored version, so more blood & gore! I've heard the blood is actually green in the australian censored version! Can anybody confirm?

Awesome game if you haven't played it yet! I'd reccommend playing in multiplayer mode as it's alot more fun. Though that's me playing on xbox, haven't tried on PC yet.

    The blood is actually red/brown so normal for zombies.

    In the AU version the corpses disappear and your screen doesnt get covered in blood and you dont see dismemberment as much. It is like watching a zombie film made for kids. Still fun though.

    If you buy via steam it will actually be the Australian version since it "knows" where you are.

    A common trick to make it think you are in the US is to go through the US steam page with /?cc=us on the end as such :

    Steam Homepage

    or for this specific game Left 4 Dead 2 on Steam (US)

    Then pay via credit card with a fake US address. Paypal will reject the payment if you try using it.

    This trick actually works for any game on steam, even Call of Duty : Modern Warfare 2, instead of paying the AU rate of $89.95 on steam, you can pay the US rate of $59.99.

    It makes it more fair for us Aussies and other countries like the EU area and NZ.:D

    You can also try using ?cc=uk to pay in pounds and so on, one of the Killing Floor skin packs is actually cheaper for the UK than the rest of the world

    Nice one Gaxx. I figured they went on IP and would adjust the prices accordling.
    You tried the CC trick (fake USA address) and it worked?

    Not for left4dead2

    However I have done it for other games (most recently Medieval II Total War) to get cheaper prices. I have a few friends on steam who did this trick and it worked for them (uncensored). It also works for the 4 pack.

    Right. I wondered as when I have used a cc in the US before I have been asked to fax proof of address over. Not bothered to try again since the messing around. I was also under the impression that they would flag an Australian bank cc. Thanks for the tip

    Valve/Steam dont ask for ID since their method seems to be much "better" against using fake credit cards

    If it is reported as stolen, or insufficent funds, they have been known to just disable the steam account altogether.

    Hence why you shouldnt accept games from randoms on the internet.
