The issue is regionalism and rights that differ from country to country. The stores hands are tied in that regard. Similarly, Greenmangaming can sell digital downloads of Ubisoft games except in the US because they don't have the rights to.

DTP is the publisher for Drakensang in Europe but in the US the publisher is Valusoft (a division of THQ).
To make things worse, there seem to be regional issues within EU as well. You can for an example not download Drakensang: River of time here in Sweden, gamersgate does not even show the game for me. Most stores won't ship the game to Sweden either. So playing the expansion seem to be impossible unless I want to step outside the boundaries of the law
