Please check our store locator and look if our dealers have still some in stock. We´re out of stock of both of them.

First it was Axis and Allies

Then it was Steel Panthers

Now it is the Mega Campaigns

You do realise that these products either require a download (Steel Panthers) or you must normally purchase them eh.

You might be able to find any number of games on sale here

http://www.cdaccess.com/index.htm

They have Axis and Allies for only 12 bucks.

You can get Steel Panthers from this link

http://www.matrixgames.com/insidemg...wdownload&cid=2

The Mega Campaigns though will require you to put out some effort.
They are currently sold out and supplies will only be found by extreme good luck in some out of the way supplier (likely overseas).

I think it is safe to say, you missed the boat on the Mega Campaigns.

Now I will be blunt, this operation is full of ****t!!!

I don't care what the state of the Italian economy is, asking 99 bucks US for Steel Panthers Arsenal is f**King extortion.
A. those games are old DOS games I can get for next to FREE!!
B. some of those games appear in numerous locations as free downloads In some cases as updated versions ie Steel Panthers also known as Steel PanthersWaW through Matrix here or Steel PanthersWW2 as well as Steel Panthers 2 Modern Battles otherwise known as Steel Panthers MBT at Wargamer.com
C. A US resident could get it for you and put in personal mail for next to nothing as well.

Don't believe me? Then you have never met Margaret (see this thread)

Frankly I am outraged that a company could hang out to dry Italian game players like this.

Want my opinion...send Matrix the funds in US Dollars for the Mega Campaign cd of your choice in Matrix prices, and arrange for one of us appropriately equiped (hardware/software wise) members of the forum to burn you a copy and mail it to ya.

Yes I know this will offend someone out there in the shipping and tarrifs community. Screw them.
As long as Matrix gets a defacto purchase sent, who cares is my feeling.

I only listed Steel Panthers games from the site. But just about half of their games are outright robbery prices. It's amazing there is any wargaming community in Italy at all.

Panzer General series games, outrageous prices when you consider you can find them here for free

http://pub131.ezboard.com/bjpspanzers

I reeeeeeeeally feel sorry for my Italian location wargaming bretheren this morning.
If these prices are typical of commerce in Italy, then I guess it will be the last country that will ever appear on my travel list should I ever experience the option.

Hmm addendum, that site mentions Aussy dollars, they may be Australian, still there is no excuse for their prices.

Who cares where they are from.

Les, may I say that you take things a bit too straight ahead, sometimes ?
You flamed Italian way of commerce, but in fact it has nothing to see with us(Italians), that company.
And I posted the link, as a good example of robbery, in fact !

Now, what you have to do, is simply editing your post and change the words “Italians” with “Aussies” :D :D

Yes was hasty thinking it was an Italian company, not sure it is Aussie beyond them mentioning Aussie dollars.

But I think I can safely say the company where ever it is sucks.
