The $10 credit for XCOM on GMG is for the NA version only, because for some reason they aren't allowed to allow us to use the 25% off voucher for this specific region. Boggles my mind, especially since that credit is being extended to ALL pre-orders, including those who bought it during the trade-in special a few weeks ago that already got a price of $32-38, depending on whether it had a base 20% or 10% off.

I wish they'd be a bit more consistent with their pre-order offers, I don't want to have to worry about exactly *when* I place my order so that I am able to get the best deal. Their policy usually is "you get the price you got at the time," even if it was an error on their part (initially they listed BL2 for $50). Though they do allow people to cancel, and then place it again... Makes no sense.
They gave an official answer, and I've posted about it and linked it in several blues posts on this now.

Basically its dictated by contractual issues with 2k. They figured out a way to get around it by offering store credit, which they didn't have to do.

Just like regional pricing on steam isn't because of steam wanting to screw people, its because of publishers setting it that way.
