  • yeah finally something for us too.
  • I see as many Amazon UK deals on here as the US, though if you are speaking of deals from Microsoft, then you may have a point.
  • Well I'm not British. In most parts of Europe we have the euro and without a credit card I'm not able to buy something from Amazon UK.
    And most deals and even some services are exclusive for the US. The e-book shop for example. And most of the big deals in the US. You guys even have different content in the store to begin with and that without any real reason.
    And I don't want to compare the US Cortana with the UK Cortana, the German Cortana or the fact that other German speaking countries don't have Cortana at all. That makes no sense.
    MS is still very focused on the US while other companies like Google and Apple bring their products and services to all people. That's sad. And btw I'm not talking about Windows central. I'm talking about MS.
  • I apologize, I wasn't aware of the shipping restrictions of Amazon, though it makes kind of makes sense. Don't get me started on digital purchase / streaming rights. To really don't understand why in this day and age everything isn't available everywhere. It's a joke even in the same country, this service can't have this set of shows or only for a period of time, and it's always changing.
  • I wonder if this is related to Games Pass. I expect that they may be trying to get some sales prior to some titles hitting that service.
  • Boooo... This isn't making America great again lol... Great deals for those across the pond.
