@tristan-lee : Probably because the Channel Islands including the Isle of Man, Guernsey and Jersey are neither a part of Britain or the United Kingdom but are referred to as self-governing British Crown dependencies. They do not follow UK law as they have their own law courts and legal systems.
Hey Tristan, What region is Guernsey assigned to?
Does this cause any problems with using the store, or playing games? That would be annoying.
I suppose it could be for the purposes of VAT deduction ...though surely it would be beneficial for them to just include a mark-up to the CI at the same rate as VAT...i don't really know though and I'm just guessing.
BTW, it's Jason, Martyn's cousin!
