Call of Duty Classic Region Locked – South African Xbox Live Users Shafted AGAIN

1 min read


You know how we told you recently that Call of duty Classic was coming to Xbox Live and PSN soon, and that Xbox live users needn’t fear it being blocked on account of its Teen rating?

Well we were bloody wrong. Because the game isn’t available in Germany – likely because of that whole Nazi thing, it won’t be available in countries that don’t have official Xbox Live support. Countries like South Africa. Sorry Xbox users, but you’re going to have to employ a VPN if you really want to shoot at Ze Chermans. The game should be available tomorrow for South African PSN users though, because you lot aren’t treated like 3rd rate citizens of nowhere.

Thanks to eXp for the tip.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
