trouble with FS2012 3D not being recognized in US...

Postby NDFarmer » Mon Apr 09, 2012 5:49 pm

hey guys. ok, first, i will tell you that i am from the USA... well, i just got my copy of FS2012 3D in the mail from the UK today, so i plug it into my new 3DS, and nothing happens. >:( >:( >:( it recgonizes a diferent card that i have, but my 3DS came from the US somewhere, so i would assume that it is the US version. on the packaging for FS, it says, "for use with the European/Austrailian version only..." i didn't know there was a different version! any ideas? thanks :(

US 3DS is region locked, you need a UK 3DS to play a UK game

I got this as a email reply

Does the seller accept returns for a full refund than that would be your best bet, send the seller a message saying the game will not play on a US 3ds and will be returning it..but if not than try selling the game but if you want to really play it buy a UK 3DS system (but it would be cheaper to sell the game)

or contact customer-support at giants-software dot com and see if they will buy it back after explaining

you won't be able to get the full amount when selling, why not stick with 2011 PC game (Im sure 2012 is slightly better) untill they come out with a newer FS game for PC..I got this email the other day

Hello,

We hope to make a US region Version, but its not up to us, but to the publishers. As soon as we have news regarding a US Version we will post it on our website.

I got this reply from GIANTS
Hello,

We are working on bringing the game to Canada and the US sometime later this year but there are no definitive dates set.

Please do not import the title from the UK, because it will not work on a north american nintendo 3ds regrettably.

Best regards, GIANTS Software Support Team
