View Full Version : Such a piss take!!!!

Why is there such a difference between US and UK release dates, it's starting to get boring now >:(

Ghost Recon, US release 7th March and UK release 31st March. Whats up with that.

The same goes with more than a handful of games now. I understand the formats are different but they managed to get the release dates within a week of each other usually. Why the sudden kick in the teeth for European gamers!?!?!?! >:(

I couldnt agree more this has been a serious bone of contention for me since ps1 (and probably before that but i was too young to care!) I could understand if it was japan or somewhere with a different language but the u.s and u.k versions 9/10 times will be identical. Id like to see something extra for the european release like the dvd market sometimes includes more extras, even if its a couple of new costumes or cars or something just to take the edge off having to wait longer. seriously annoying >:(

I totally agree. If they delay the release they should add bonuses, otherwise, what the hell are they playing it.

3 weeks difference between the US and European release dates for Ghost Recon has just pissed me right off. >:(

Ive just remembered that MGS:sons of liberty on the ps2 had a european extreme difficulty level so it is possible

(although i could do without uber difficult game settings tho.) :D

Maybe they are adding British accents.

02-23-2006, 03:23 PM
British Accents to Ghost Recon. Seriously doubt it considering we will be controlling American troops.

02-23-2006, 03:25 PM
but there could be american troops with british accents...never rule that out.

02-23-2006, 03:27 PM
Ha ha. ;D

Why would American troops have British accents when in all the other games I play with Americans, they sound like Americans. Wouldn't be very realistic if you had an American talking like a cockney (Londoner). lol ;D

02-23-2006, 03:41 PM
I think "tally ho chaps lets storm the base" or "cor blimey geezer theres thaasands ov em" would improve GRAW no end. lol

I'm having flashbacks of Call of Duty British missions.

02-23-2006, 04:32 PM
Ha ha.  ;D

why wouldnt they? ;)... or a cockney, dressed as an america, talking like himself...

conspiracy theories are out there....everywhere.

02-23-2006, 04:35 PM
Ha ha. I don't think anyone has spoke like the British troops in Call of Duty since the 50's.

All I want is games that come out at similar time intervals, is that too much to ask??

02-23-2006, 04:49 PM
you have a valid complaint... i agree, its utter bullshit, and its not as if they need the extra 3 weeks to make the disc, theyre done, they are usually done at least a month before time... they may however only have access to one high volume burner though...highly doubt that though.

02-23-2006, 04:49 PM
Maybe it'll be region free then its problem solved?

02-23-2006, 04:52 PM
Erton, I see your point, but they never had problems with the games for the release date and that was 2 weeks between 3 different nations. :-\

02-24-2006, 07:03 PM
Looks like my rant paid off, lol ;D

Some of the websites in Britain have changed the ate to the 17th of March. Not sure why, but is good news for me ;D

02-24-2006, 08:30 PM
i made some calls ;)

02-25-2006, 01:05 AM
PMSL ;) Cheers Erton. I owe you one, lol ;D

02-27-2006, 07:38 AM

wait...dont kill me :-[

that does hella suck, but they wont ever tell you why it will always be becuase of the diffrent region and what not

02-27-2006, 03:56 PM
I reckon they should wait till is ready to be realesed in the US and UK.

02-27-2006, 05:21 PM
what about japan, you cant say wait for two but not the third, and dont forget about aussie, or korea, or anywhere else in the world

02-27-2006, 05:36 PM
theres only 3 xbox regions- Uk, US and Japan. Japan gets different games cos of the market, so it should be the same in the UK and US

02-27-2006, 05:40 PM
what about austrailia, and the korean release, and the hong kong release, if they were the same as japan they would have launched at the same time but they didnt, leading me too believe they are different regions, but thats just my opinion

02-27-2006, 05:44 PM
there the same region, but different countries have different release dates. me and routine were chatting about Burnout, and he gets it a day or two before i do, and were both PAL

02-27-2006, 05:45 PM
hmm, that is interesting i guess, you make a good point minty

02-27-2006, 05:48 PM
as always ;)

@Webb - You know how hard it is to release games everywhere at the same time? Extremely, a lot of hassle. They've got it down to 3 days apart now.
