At a guess, I suspect it's so Ubi can boost their "holiday" sales numbers in the US, which likely aren't tracked until after Halloween.

Seems like the only logical explaination to me anyway.

Although if piracy really is an issue, it seems kind of stupid to hold off release in the biggest market for two extra weeks.

Then again, it also seems unlikely that anyone who was going to buy it suddenly wouldn't just because it's out there illegally a couple of weeks before.

Eh, either way, staggered releases without good reason (such as localization requirements) suck.

So how much does shipping from Europe cost???

No idea but i hope we dont ship to the US, all the retailers from the US said that AEP and FB could only be sold within their borders, i think the EU should do this http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gifhttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

Didn't we in the US get it first last time? I think so, but can't be sure. If so, then all's fair. But it stands to reason that they could release it all over at the same time.

Yeah...Europe got it 2-3 weeks after we in North America did. Some cases it was 4 weeks after.

So I can wait...its only fair.

Im all for fairness too. I had already resigned myself to wait til November 9th, but when I saw this I thought maybe they (UBI) had thought differently and decided to make it a "blanket" release.

The wait is not excruciating to me. I want it as soon as I can get it, but what's 2 weeks? Not much...not even in dog years.

November 9th it is then.

I'm gonna have to wait longer for it. Probably till sometime after it's patch to find out what other planes are going to put into it

HEY! Keep it down. We got AEP first, so it's only fair that Europe gets it first this time around.

Isn't this sort of a nebulous thing. I remember when AEP came out nobody expected it so soon. At first everybody was skeptical because it wasn't supposed to have been released yet and all that. Anyway, if the Europeans get it first good for them. Just please share plenty of screenshots http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif.
