That's like your fault. Here in the NTSC region people don't use weird 50Hz formats the Europeans use. We also don't have stupid laws like the ones that discourage the selling of products unless they are localized to their native language. Special mention to the censoring of blood, Nazis and even ninjas some countries had.
I still fail to look at the advantages of European releases. They may be the most well revised, but also the ones that came a year late. They aren't compatible with NTSC, heavily censored, localization resource consuming or any combination of the previous mentioned.
Hurray for Japan/USA releases... except for certain jewels like Shenmue II for Dreamcast or Michigan: Report from Hell on PS2 that come to rescue.
