Has there been a precedent set for this: A game that was released in one region, but region-locked in the other two. The game is than published by a different publisher in a previously region-locked region. That game was *NOT* stackable?

 

I ask this because 505 games is releasing Phineas and Ferb in Europe. The thing is, they also released Heavy Fire and that game wasn't stackable. Heavy Fire was region-free so I would assume that they could just print the same disk as the NTSC region and that just slap a different label on the disk.

 

Phineas and Ferb is region-locked to PAL and NTSC-J regions, so they would have to significantly change the data on the disk, and make it stackable? Or is it a case of the publisher, 505 games just not stacking games?

 

Thanks.

(EDIT: apparently this game just not xbox live enabled yet, according to some comments i found while searching.)

 

i know this isn't really a stackable, but for other achievement hunters i figured i would mention this here:

 

have you seen this new Win 8 game? it showed up on the windows store app. i am in usa. there are supposed to be 5 achievements, three of which i have triggered. however, it seems like the game doesn't connect to microsoft servers at all, so the achievements don't link onto my gamertag. can't find any mention of this game anywhere else. i thought people here are usually good at figuring out the deal with some obscure games.

Seems like a very odd game to be Live-enabled. Either it was a mistake or they just weren't ready to release it publicly and it got pulled immediately. Did the five achievements even add to 200G?

 

Many W8 games had Live issues when they were released though, or they soft launched in weird regions like Trinidad and Tobago. I guess we'll see.

i think it is still available. i went to the Games app, clicked Windows Games Store, and it shows up right after halo spartan assault under New Releases. i think it cost me $1.49 USD, and the 5 achievements are 20, 30, 40, 50, and 60, so that adds up to 200.

 

glacier blast wouldn't connect to live either at first, but it actually gave a message when it failed. there was an update for that, but you still have set windows region to Canada for now or it won't connect.

Only the Chinese version of Carnival Games Taiwan stacks.

 

Heres a picture of both.

 

Hoping to save someone from wasting money like I did.

 

The one on the left is the standard version. one on right is the Taiwan stack

Just a heads up. According to http://www.famitsu.com/news/201311/01042635.html Saints Row 4 will be released with 13 DLCs included on Jan 23, 2014. Given the history of Saints Row stacking in different countries all over the place, we will have to wait and see. The fact that it has contents which were not included in other country versions of the game, I think it's worth keeping an eye out.
