Well I have read it on several sites and yet I am still to believe it is true.
UK ( Europe ) October 3rd - US October 7th.

I am pretty hyped about this game and I hope the early release date is true.
Normally I much prefer it when a game is out in the USofA first as when it comes out in the UK there is normally a well built achievement guide either completed or near completion.

Obviously Fallout 3 is one of those games where instant achievements are not so important.......you will probably get them all at some point 100 hours down the line :woop:

according to www.tothegame.com it will come out UK: 10. October: US: 07. October and NORDIC: 09.october.
but it could be that they just haven't updated the release date

For guys in the UK...where can i preorder the Special Edition (Lunchbox, Bobble head etc) because my 3 local Gamestations are not taking pre orders "because the game is not on our systems"....

do you have to get it from a store or will you get it online?

I know gme.co.uk do it and its 50 plus you should get it a day early because most new releases from game come the day beore release.

Ok im still confused of the release date for the US. When i first read awhile back it would be the 8th of October. Then recently on the new trailers it said the 28th of October. In Octobers issue of GameInformer it says either 7th or 8th. Now i read online and im getting the 28th again. And now i read the UK is getting it on the 10th and usually the US gets stuff a week before Europe so im still confused here.

Are you sure about those dates? The date I've been given is the 31st, which seems to be universal throughout many UK retail websites.

North American release date is Oct 28th
Europe appears to have a release date of Oct 24th - it's nice to see Europe get a game early since often they are given games late

No, no, no, no. US release - Oct 28th. Europe release - Oct 31. So says this website, IGN, Gamespot, and even the link above.
