Are Game Center Leaderboards Region Locked?

Just a general query, picked up Cut The Rope this morning and played away at the Cardboard Box section until I had got myself atop the all time leaderboard which shows to me there is only 399 players currently, I mean surely there's been more purchases than that for this game, and I'm not entirely sure whether this is only a United Kingdom leaderboard I'm being a part of/viewing.

Anyone in the know about this?

It depends when the game was updated. Another thing to remember Is that allot of iOS users don't update there devices. I had to tell my friends about game center

That's true, regardless do you know whether or not the GC leaderboards are region locked?

At least now theres 2106 players to compare myself with, I'm now 3rd... even though the guy in second has the same score as me but has been placed above me even though I claimed that score first, oh well.

Definitely a good ranking, better than trying to find yourself amongst the angry birds leaderboards; I'm like 44 thousandth, I feel special.

Also the link in your sig to your site's facebook page is broken, unless it's just me.
