Revengeance on Steam restricted by SOP System & Konami Seperatists
-Valve have built region locking functionality into Steamworks, and it seems Konami have opted to use this functionality with the release of Revengeance.

- Revengeance is simply impossible to buy on Steam in some regions.

- Konami have also opted to disable cross-region gifting through Steam.

- Konami are using the region locking functionality provided by Steamworks to engage in a process called regional pricing discrimination... pricing is determined on a case by case basis for each region, in an attempt to maximise revenue.

- Konami are in charge of these decisions, not Platinum Games.

Konami regions locks the PC version of Castlevania 2 Lords of Boogaloo, proving that this here is policy.

There's only two reasons:

- The option to restrict content was available.

- Konami

Arseholes.

"Hey we can piss some people off with this!"

It's only a mistake if many people complain loudly enough.

Plausible deniability.
