    I don't want to sound the alarms, but why are certain games no longer coming out to the Canadian iTunes store? So far The Dark Knight: Batmobile [cheesy but I love anything Batman], Nicky Boom and Platypus all seem to be MIA..what's the deal? Hopefully this isn't the start of a new trend. :mad:

    edit: Alright, so Nicky Boom and Platypus are on the Canadian store but now require different links than those shown on TouchArcade, I'll take the blame for being lazy with that one. But still no Dark Knight to be found!

    It's not just about Canada.
    Some games are only for the U.S. iTunes App Store.

    Just because you are close to the U.S. it doesn't mean the Canadian App Store has to be as the U.S. one. Each country has some exclusive apps.

    Yep. If we don't get it, it's probably not available outside the US.

    These titles are not available in the UK either. Although, there are listings for them... perhaps they will be available to download soon.

    Whenever licenses properties are involved, countries get screwed.

    I imagine in the case of Batman, it's got some countries they don't have the rights for.

    Also, iTunes updates in parts. So give it 24 hours.

    First, we're very, very sorry for that. Second, please stop telling people that she's Canadian. (We certainly don't!)

    Again, we're sorry :D

    (Of course, you unleashed G.W.Bush jr. on the world, so maybe we're not the only ones at fault!)

    Because Canadians are not really people...

    Whatchu talking 'bout? My favorite song, I hate to admit, is that song from the movie Titanic: every night in my dreams I see you, I feel you...

    That's not me, I'm serious. And at least Celine Dion doesn't make them funky faces when she's singing, right BB?
