Could someone help me buy DA: Inquisition (English) from a physical shop?

    It doesn't have to be an UK version. Any global version outside of India will work, as long as it says it has English, since the only real ('physical') region block is for India.

    However, the problem I'm facing is that EA is going out of its way to avoid selling the English version of DAI physically in Poland (where I am) or through digital distribution to anyone with a Polish IP.

    And I don't want to mask my IP because I don't want to easily invalidate the licence, breach their Origin T&Cs etc.

    So, just about any boxed English version purchased from a physical shop will probably work, even if it's just a CD-key. Obviously, a version with a real, physical disk would be so much more preferable, as it would be totally unthinkable even for EA to block that or force-change the language (which I can avoid without violating their terms anyway).

    Bottom line, I need (A) English Dragon Age: Inquisition on a DVD or, failing that, (B) a DVD-less version (bare key) purchased in a real physical box in a physical shop.

    Does any kind soul live near a physical game shop and not mind helping me out on this one? Obviously only if it won't trouble you excessively.

    You really wanna pay some 20 EUR + shipping for that kind of bullshit treatment from EA? The game honestly isn't worth it.

    You don't have a credit card, chev? I mean, you could just order it from any online game shop, say Amazon.de or co.uk and have it shipped to you... I can order it for you from wherever if that's the problem.

    I was wondering the same thing, if that's the case I'd also be willing to do it.

    I have a preorder copy that I still haven't taken out of the amazon envelope. It's yours if you want it.

    Oh, I somehow ended up not having done a good online search for a DVD version. Probably because my tired brain didn't click. It seems I should be able to buy from Amazon.co.uk without getting blocked by some silly regionalization rules.

    However, Catbert, if you don't intend to use yours, I could buy it off you to cut the loss instead, what say ye? (Or make it a gift, and I'll send you something too.)

    No biggie, someone should play it if I won't. PM me where to send it, and I'll drop it off at the post office tomorrow.
