Important available with Cherry MX Brown!!! Unfortunately, only in Germany?

I want to buy a K65 RGB keyboard, because it's TKL. I'm looking for a MX Brown switches and obviously on official Corsair's website there is only version with MX Red switches (product code: CH-9000222-NA or EU etc.).

How big my surprise was, when I found out on german Amazon and many other german online shops, that they actually have this keyboard with Cherry MX Brown switches It has product code: CH-9000228-DE. So as you can see, the number 222 refers to Red switches, and 228 refers to Brown ones. I had been ready to buy it until I saw that it has different and weird buttons arrangement in comparison to NA version which I prefer.

Link to german Amazon with K65 RGB MX Brown: http://www.amazon.de/Corsair-CH-9000.../dp/B015C9Y658
If you want to find more offers, just google: "Corsair CH-9000228"


So there is my question to you Corsair, why the NA/international version of K65 RGB with Brown switches is not available ???
And if you're going to release it, when will it be?

Please Corsair, I really want NA version of K65 RGB with MX Brown.


EDIT:
There are also versions:
CH-9000228-ND Nordic
CH-9000228-CZ Czech
KE-CK65RGB-BR South Africa

Now, that's new. I wasn't aware they finally made the K65 with brown switches. I did try to look around too but I can't see the NA version anywhere either.

Actually I can't even find that SKU code on Corsair's own site, maybe it has been released only recently and they have yet to update their site.

NNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOO I've been waiting for this since I discovered the K65 even exists :'(



How is there possibly more demand in Czech Republic and *South Africa* than NA? Isn't that like 0.5% of NA market?

This is sad. I wanted to get the K65 but the only thing stopping me was the red switches. Any chance you guys would have K65's with brown or blue switches? :(

As already stated, mx brown switches are the most popular switch in North America. Therefore, mx brown should be the first available option on new keyboards. I made an account here specifically to request a version of the k65 with these switches, as I am apart of the ~50% of the population that prefers brown to blue or red.

Red is actually more popular than Brown but not by much (according to our own sales data).
