It goes on sale tomorrow and the Steam site is saying "not available in your country" but it was just listed earlier today so I wonder if there will be a separate Canadian purchase page or something like that

Man I really hope it is available here. I waited a whole month and saved up money to put in my pre order. I read a few comments on other sites and they made it look like Canada isn't even gonna be in the pre order!!!

almost everyone outside US is not getting it for pre-order for now :-(

you would think because of our proximity we would be easy to cater to.....

So whats the deal? Hard to believe but is canada not even getting it?

I dont understand why they couldnt just take our preorders. Even if there was fine print to say it wont be available until a month or so after US. They are basically asking us to buy a competitors product at this rate.

Alright a bit of good news... I think! https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.roadto ... llers/amp/

Read this article and a few paragraphs down it mentions the index pre ordering US and EU first because of demand. So it sounds like they just want to get numbers for right now and then hopefully they will open it up to everyone else soon. Although it would be nice for valve to give some info but I have a feeling they're playing this all by ear and seeing what their numbers will be at. Probably a good idea so they dont have much trouble meeting their July 28th deadline.
