Is there any reason why I shouldn't do this?

I'm wanting to sell a console game, which was on a very limited release in Europe only (goes for about £35-£50 second hand) on account of it being utterly shit. However when they released the game they didn't put a region lock on it so it will work in any console in any country. Like a region free DVD.

So I want to put it on eBay and sell it outside Europe. You can send international signed for I know that, but is it going to be a massive pain in the arse for me? Is there any reason why I shouldn't do this, because the copies of it I've seen are only EU postage only. Also are there any countries I should specifically not post to? (I'm avoiding Africa altogether).

international signed for make it plain was

"this was bought in uk and does not appear to have region etc please check it will be compatible with your own machine before bidding as I can not tell what will work with your equipment please feel free to ask any questions before auction ends"

with signed for should be fine but have heatrd that more parcels go "missing " in italy and spain that france germany holland that said never had a problem with sending overseas stuff

Aren't games released in different PAL/NTSC versions for Europe/USA?

(As a nice chap in Virginia reminded me when I was trying to buy playstation games blush. Though that was a few years ago.)
