well....i dunno if this refers to the US as well...but i went to my local Eb games shop and asked them the games release date. They said it was 1st of Nov. To get a more accurate release dat I went to a GAME store and the guy told me that its coming on the 30th Nov.
Game stores get the release dates early but they never get them late. Atleast thats what I've seen
Also this might just refer to the Pal regions since its happened b4 because of the diff languages.

if its pushed back for us Australians then that sucks big time...I've been waiting for this game for what seems to be forever and I can't handle another awesome game to be delayed like that http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif

What is wrong with people? This has been asked a bunch of times. Use the find feature. Ubisoft has not released an official date yet!

Gamestores never get a release date until it's officially announced to the public so when we learn the release date they get the release date

but until they get a release date they have to put any old date in the computer to put the SKU in so people can reserve it http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif so that's how it works there was no delay if it was the same game store that you went to then they just changed the date if it was two different game stores the other game store just put in a different date

No release date has been confirmed yet...but i wouldnt count on getting at the same time as everyone else if you are in Australia, you are more likely to get it 2-3 weeks afterwards.

But why is everything always delayed for Australia... I mean come on is a three week delay really necessary??

Because australia isn't priority http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif I hate to say it but it's true they would rather North America get everything they need and make tons of money and ship the left overs to Australia

Atleast that's how I see it http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Because we happen to live in a cultural backwater http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Madden 08 was delayed two months for the ps3, and a few weeks for the xbox 360.

I remember when burning crusade came out and it was one day later than everyone else, even with a game that big.

Australia just gets the short end of the stick when it comes to things like this, mostly because its so far away from everyone else, and secluded as well.

maybe that is how it works but I don't think it's very fair to do so...I mean business wise, I can see their point... but other than that its not very fair at all!! That's my opinion...

I agree, i think it just plain sucks getting things late.. Its hard enough to curb my AC addiction as it is, without having to wait an extra few weeks for it.

Unfortunately, thats the way things work, and there is nothing you can do about it besides order AC from an American company (only if you have an american xbox)

I usually have to do this with alot of computer games / dvds / tv series.

I'm not going to lie it raelly isn't fair but they don't care what's fair as long as they get their money right?

If you have a PS3 you can order AC that reminds me http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

I'm not sure about the ps3 if they use the dvd regional codes or not.

I dont blame the game companies, its hard to release a worldwide game in so many countries at the same time.

RetiredHatch
10-20-2007, 12:11 AM
No PS3 does not use regional codes as I said http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif are you ignoring me?

I agree it is difficult which is why they have prioritized certain regions above others

I wasnt sure if thats what you meant by your post :P

It's a bummer we get it a few weeks later, which means we will have to avoid the board for those few weeks to avoid spoilers as well. I'll just be happy to get it after waiting this long.

stix489
10-20-2007, 12:19 AM
http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/agreepost.gif yeah i guess it is difficult but the fact that, as Lisky mentioned, Australia always gets the short end of the stick can get quite annoying...especially with the really anticipated titles such as AC!! But what can we do!! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

And the spoilers are gonna be unavoidable mate...even if you isolate your self in your home and lock yourself in a windowless room for those few weeks!!

Luckily i'm moving the first week of november and will be able to hide in my new house until AC comes out.

The Special Edition AC was cut in australia as well. The one with the altair figure and such.

But atleast we get a metal case, a dvd, and the artefact for only 10 dollars more.

Yo I pre-ordered this today for 1€. You guys probably won't belive me but here in finland eb games/gamestop is a new gamestore so they made a great offer to all gamers. If you bring 3 old console games(ps2,xbox,gamecube etc. but not pc)to the store you'll get 1 brand new game for any platform with only 1€ so I've bought a few games already and today I pre-ordered assassin's!!!

Australia was a penal colony...
There were free settlers though, just like America and India and every other country the British Empire occupied...


But thats such a stereotypical comment, and it's quite frankly a bull**** thing to say.
