No it's not US only. I paid $25 for shipping & handling (FedEx) to Finland. Mind, VAT comes on top of it too.

And since Cypress newer declare the cost of shipping, FedEx in Norway are guessing on shippingcost, so you end up paying VAT on guestimated shippincosts around $100-150 :(

Ok, screw that devkit. I guess I'll wait until they have it in Farnell (who btw is listed on Cypress website and don't carry any stock of that devkit)
I love the smell of FR4 in the morning!

It's too new, takes some time, but eventually they get there, and prices seems to be fair also, have bought some from them instead of joking with Fedex.

Find chips shows availability at other places, not a lot of stock yet and not sure about cost to Europe from those.

Octapart also show availability elsewhere:

CY8CKIT-043
CY8CKIT-044

Digi-Key have UK stock, but their free delivery minimum charge is £50, OK I suppose if you're combining with another order.  On it's own they want an eye-watering £12 to deliver it.

Digikey/Mouser have been $30 for shipping, not checked the last year though.

This is the first time I hear that DK has any stock outside of the US. I'll probably be placing a bigger order in near future, so I might try with DK.

OT:
That is: if the idiots who won presidential and parliment elections here a month ago don't turn my country into another North Korea by that time and USD exchange rate won't change from 4.0 to 8.0 :/.

Some progress on the PSoC 5LP video controller, might even work with the 4-M series.

I did switch to program the UDBs directly instead of wasting resources.

Also with this approach I can make a component that you just can plug in the frequency and inputs for what mode you want to do.

So I changed my mind and decided to go with Verilog instead:

Not sure if the PSoC 4 M Series would have the needed resources as in UDB elements. But if not, I might be able to optimize the implementation to target the UDB data paths directly instead of letting Creator do it for me.
