I was looking to buy Left 4 Dead, and maybe I made the mistake not to buy it before Christmas - but this game is not in stock anywhere in Canada. Not in stock on amazon.ca, bestbuy, or futureshop - in store or online. It's January 13th and it's been out of stock since shortly before Christmas. I have looked at store stock on futureshop across Canada, and no stores have the game. There are plenty of the 360 version, but none of the PC version - bestbuy.ca doesn't even list it anymore. Anyone know whats going on with this?

It would be absolutely ridiculous if they didn't sell the PC game in Canada...maybe the game is becoming a reality and it's all starting in Canada!

I don't really know but then again you can just buy it on Stream. Yea you get hit by the CAN to US dollars conversion, on the + side you don't pay taxes.

Sounds fishy....

Just put this together of all the out of stock things from different provinces... online out of stock too.
I have went into the stores me and they don't have it either.

Yeah I really don't like buying stuff like that, I want a game disc. If it comes down to it I will, but I don't get why it's not available anywhere.

yeah its a popular game, I live in Canada to and have had no problem finding it and usually see it at  any electronic store i happen to pass by. Maybe just a shortage in your area? if you live on the east coast or somewhat far away from the border maybe it just takes longer for it to get there, i dunno.

What store did you go to?

I live in Ontario... and no where near here has it. I went into Toronto and they didn't have it so I don't know where else. I guess I just have to wait...

And if you didn't see that picture I posted, it's out of stock in futureshop across Canada. Bestbuy near me doesn't have it and neither does EB. I don't have any other electronic stores really that sell it, maybe Walmart...

Get it off Steam. Hell, you should've gotten it before JAnuary 2nd, it was on sale for around 35 euros/USD.

Might as well get it off Steam. The retail version just comes in a stupid little DVD case that's not even worth showing off.
Yes, bigger = better when it comes to PC game packaging. XD

This was a game that probably retailers did not expect to be this popular. I bought it at my Best Buy in Vancouver and there are plenty of stock there...just be patient, more will be coming.

Don't get it off Steam - our exchange rate sucks, you'll be spending more than you need to.

Why don't you just buy it on Steam?

Bought mine at EB games, in Canada, no problems here.

What do you mean Canadians don't pay taxes.  15%+more if you count income tax. >_>

hey they have it stock now..I was having hard time trying to find a copy of Fallout 3... finally found it at Missisauga Bestbuy... and it was the Collector's Edition :)

I'm guessing it was because of high demand during Christmas season.
