Hey guys I live in Ireland and was wondering in general does anyone know when games on demand/xbox live arcade games appear on the given release date.
I would love to get this at 00:01 but im doubtful it would be up then.
Anyone have a rough estimate?
Cheers!

I live in Norway, and we're one hour ahead of UK. In my experience, these games usually come out around 05:00AM (that would be 04:00AM in your time). This has been the case with BF1943 and various other Arcade titles. I'm not 100% sure if it's the same with games on demand, but I see no reason why it should differ from the Arcade games!

Excuse my laziness as I'm too lazy to look up timezones, but it should be out sometime within the next two and a half hours to three and a half hours from now.

Is it out already?

Getting my VPN ready again, I'm from Germany and CVX won't be released here, so I got to bypass the IP ban.

It's so much easier to find a game when there's already an xbox.com page for it. I keep checking the Game Marketplace and xbox.com. Can't sleep so I figure I might as well pick this up now and not in the morning..


Edit:

Sales, Demos, and basically everything besides today's Games on Demand (Crysis 2, Blur, and RECVXHD) are up on the dashboard.

Edit 2:

Did some digging on the Portuguese website and found it. Was able to convert the URL to the US site's version, seeing as there was a price difference.

3.98? Really? On the American Marketplace, it's 1.83 GB..

Were there any known differences between the American and PAL PS2 releases that would account for a 2 GB size difference?

Especially for the German gamers here. I'm downloading it right now with my Birtish proflie. No need for VPN or anything.
Good Luck.

Edit: It's 3.98 GB. Since it's a game on demand it's allowed to be bigger.

Gotta hurry then, since RE4 uncut didnt't work the day after release with my US profile (you get the typical "unavailable from your region" error".)

Thanks!

I was just checking gamefaqs and people there are claiming that the European version is bigger since it has multiple languages.
I guess the mystery is solved then.
Nearly done downloading as well.

Makes a lot of sense, actually.

how does that work though? Having a couple more languages shouldn't be adding on 2 gigs of memory should it?

My download is 1.83GB

I believe the difference is that the US version only have english language in it and the europe version supports english,french,german and spanish. So that makes sense for the bigger size.

Just got it from the austrian marketplace. I'm from Germany and the game is still on our index and didn't get a release today. So I'm very glad to play it. Knew that it would work, if I got up early for the download :D

Austria and Germany are both within the PAL region.
What's your point?

Yes, and often they only put them up hours or sometimes even days after the game/DLC goes public. And in this case I got lucky. Will start my first playthrough now. But man, I still need to finish up RE 4 :/

Doesn't matter, GoD can't be NTSC/PAL/Whatever since they're downloadable content, it's to do with the regional IP address, when you try playing the game, it'll come up with an error message saying this content isn't available to your region, so it's always best to download from GoD from your own region marketplace, so that issue doesn't happen.

Never knew they remained region free for hours-days, doesn't that still mean you're gonna eventually lose the game?

Huh interesting. Thanks for this info. So the Germans can soon forget about playing this legit with their profile except for VPN tunneling.

Exactly, WE ARE the ONLY EXCEPTION when it comes to video-game releases all over the world.

For example:

Dead Rising 2 - Case Zero
Dead Rising 2 - Case West

Don't forget Austriala. The Censorship is also pretty bad over there.

Examples: Left 4 Dead 2
Mortal Kombat
