View Full Version : Question about Gift games on Steam.

05-07-10, 09:05 PM
Anyone know if its possible to gift someone a game if its not available in their country? I got my little cousin on to steam by buying him L4D2 in Argentina but I want to get him the GTA games but he says that Steam Store says they are not available in his region, would I be able to gift it?

Probably best to ask on the Steam forums.

Yes you can do this. Plenty of people do this to get around the regional pricing but also to allow for games not sold in some regions, I have some games that I couldn't buy over steam.

Yes - This is possible. People do it all the time on this forum. Crainger, etc.

Crainger is a criminal. SWAT has been dispatched to his house, and might shoot his wallaby.

False bob. Here SWAT ARE Wallabies and they have your number Canadian Vodka.

As for MagNus question. Yes, it works. Kasu sent me Prey over Steam and it's not available on Steam here. Same for GTA Vice City.

I have heard some rare games manage to not allow it, you will know if the purchase has an error come up.

Most do though.
