I can guarantee you that everything will be in English in CoD if you order it from Finland. Very few games gets localized for Finland, the NHL (icehockey game) series -at least the last time I played it- gets localized but that's because Finland and Sweden have a very high interest in hockey and many of the same people play video games. I'd be more concerned if I ordered from France, Germany or Italy for example. Those overpopulated countries always get their games localized.

On the other hand, I wouldn't want a Spitfire manual in any other language than English.

Really he does.
I don't know him or if he has sold his developments through steam, so I'll await evidence before taking any one's word as being gospel.

Ok, you guys have convinced me, I'll pre order the collector's edition from boostep. We can always have some mass action against all together against them if they screw it up

According to their order details, the copies that boostep are supplying are region locked for Zone B, which is for Europe and Australia. Check the information on the boostep website, it will tell you exactly which areas it is usuable in. Doesn't appear that they will be suitable for the U.S. Sorry.

Region locked are you serious? I remember a time when dvd movies were regio locked.. but a hack with the remote control punching in some cheat code so to speak had them unlocked. They region lock software also? I mean.. ooh wait that ip adres is from holland so I won't spin up the dvd???

edit: oh wait... Now i remember... every dvd has a small gps tracker imbedded :p

Region lock for DVD usually meant that the drive itself locks to the region of the DVD after 2 or so changes. The actual geoposition doesn't matter, only the region code of the DVD's you play.

The questions about region locking have arisen because some European resellers are advertising the Collectors Edition as "Region B".

Region B is a Bluray region code not a DVD region code. It is not clear how a Bluray region code can be enforced on a PC game.

Its possible this "Region B" comment may have been a mistake however it has made some people a little nervous about ordering box versions from other regions.

Right, it doesn't make much sense any way you look at it. If I were a betting man, I'd bet it's a mistake and the hard copies will work in any region.

But I'm not a betting man, so I'm waiting until it's definitively cleared up before throwing around the cash for a Collector's Edition and international shipping.
