"So when Diogenes perceived that he was greatly excited and quite keyed up in mind with expectancy, he toyed with him and pulled him about in the hope that somehow he might be moved from his pride and thirst for glory and be able to sober up a little. For he noticed that at one time he was delighted, and at another grieved at the same thing, and that his soul was as unsettled as the weather at the solstices when both rain and sunshine come from the very same source."

(Dio Chrysostom "Discourse" 4.77-78)

I live in London and I received my copy of AEP a couple of days ago from a supplier in Hampton Hill. But....it cost me 29 with next day delivery!!It was a US import.

Having said that,its been worth every penny. When you get it,I'm sure you'll agree.

See?
That sux!Big time.Until now I have thought that the games are not in Europe for a good reason (distribution chain and all that crap CEO sell) . But this proven me wrong.Why the heck they keep the game in the store when they could easily put it on the shelves.Can somebody explain this?Because it really sux. I live in The Netherlands and last week on Friday , I was passing to e-plaza.Just in case. The guys were busy unloading some boxes. One of them,didn't see it too good,caught my attention. I have asked the guy to hand me for a second the box (again, the same crappy DVD case you can find for 50 cents), he smiled at me and put it back in the box saying I will see it on the shelves this week. They were busy getting the cd's out from the boxes. You can imagine today I was there, didn't seen a box looking like the one I have seen.The games are in Europe allright, but for a reason they are not sold yet.What is the reason?What is the reason? Anyone in the distribution chain has an ideea to enlight us?

Did he give you that mandatory background check, as well? Can't let Aces fall into the hands of just ANY old chap.

Hmmmmmmm so does that mean that the reason why Europe gets these things later has absolutely nothing to do with UBI...

Bear,
I am not saying that the box I have seen was AEP,to be honest I don't know how it looks because they were upside down in that box and this guy didn't even show me the front cover. Could be very well any other game , but , AEP or not , they will still keep them in their boxes untile they have the go. Why so late , I really don't understand. Is at least a week earlier, in fact if you think , is exactly the date they advanced in the first place.What a heck is that?

Zayets, that's cold, man. Reminds me of a scene with Ray Milland in "Lost Weekend" (as you old ones know its an old black and white movie about alcoholism):

"Mister, you don't understand, I NEED that whiskey!"

Hope you get it soon, brother. S!

some titles have a release date, they can not be sold before that date ?

in the U.S., alot of PS titles are like that, they get them ahead of time so they are ready, but can't sell them until the date

I had good friends at my EB, and there were some tricks that could be pulled (think something like pay for it with a gift card, then you can have the game, but the card don't have to be turned in until the right date, of course, being friends, I didn't have to worry about it)

(hated it when they guys got real jobs !!!!)
