Edit 5th december: added Canada and added links.
Edit 6th december: US X-Box Version released

Well, unless I'm mistaken, today is the 6th of December... and no TSL for XBox in any of the stores I went in...

*We were lied to again!* :fist:

Oh well... I gotta wait 2 months anyway... can't justify an outlay of $150 for an XBox for just one game, no matter how good. :D

Well, if they have a violent streak, then I might suggest something tamer to give them for the holidays, as TSL is far too violent for them, perhaps something to decrease their violent urges... :D

Then the game will be all yours... [Insert Evil Laugh Here]

oh i wish they would make up their minds.

Can anyone tell me WHY there decide to leave the international xbox version on Feb 11 instead of December like the yanks version????

Because the majority of the first KotOR was sold to the USA on the X-box over 80% or somthing like that so it was rushed ahead of the rest. But because they rushed the US X-box version it was full of bugs (From what i've heard) so all other versions should have been de-buged by now so thank whatever you have faith in for small mercys.

Naw, I would do :chop1: :hang1: :blast5: to the psychiatrist, since it would mean less time on KOTOR 2. in fact, the only reason I'm not playing KOTOR 2 is because I'm not at my Dad's house... otherwise, I would. :D

Sounds about right... most new releases, be it DVD's or Music will always come out on a Tuesday (Monday midnight, if you live near the "kewl" stores). ;)

I would almost bet it's going to be on Feb. 8th... who knows, but it doesn't hurt to hope :D

whats wrong with installing 4 discs??? at least you get to stare blankly at the screen while watching the progress bar move. :bored:

of course, that also means that you have to be there if something goes dreadfully wrong with the install. imagine what would happen if suddenly the blue screen of death jumps up and you find out that your hard drive won't work anymore because of a disk read error caused by one of the files being incorrectly written onto the disk by the game....

okay, i think i'll run out of this thread along with the rest of the geeks.

well, lets do some calculations then, shall we??? :bernard:

each floppy disk can hold about 1.66 MB of data. kotor had four install disks with roughly 750MB of data each (cd's contain about 750MB, give or take 50MB). so, thats a total of 3000MB, or 3GB, of data. so, divide 3000 by 1.66 and you get a total of 1807.23. since you can't fit more than 1.66 MB on a floppy, that means that you would need a total of 1808 3.5in floppy disks. :eyes8:

lets not even factor in the amount of time that would take, considering that a floppy data rate runs at a snail's pace when compared to a cd data rate......

heh, kotor3 would be out by the time tsl is finally installed on your computer. :D

Also, keep in mind the really "kewl" stores sometimes have a 'Midnight Madness' sell if they think the product has high enough demand.

When Doom3 was released, my local Best Buy® & EB Games stores were open Monday midnight (legal to sell then). Keep your eyes peeled just in case some of the stores are feeling 'froggy'...

Of course, if you're like me & working the next day, it might just be best to pick it up on Tuesday afternoon :rolleyes: *sigh*

well, if you weigh a 3.5in floppy, you'll find that it weighs approx. 2-3 ounces. so, 1808 floppy disks that weigh, we'll say 2.5 ounces, is 4520 ounces. that translates into 282.5 pounds. :eek:

as for the size of the box, well, the calculations can be done this way: first, calculate the minimum volume taken up by 1808 floppy disks that are arranged in a rectangular shape, and then add a 8"x6"x1" volume for the manual. since a 3.5in floppy is a 3.5"x3.5"x1/8", you would need a volume of at least 2816.5 cubic inches, or 234.708 cubic feet.

to put that into perspective, a 2004 Ford Explorer (the most popular american SUV) has a maximum cargo volume of 81.7 cubic feet. therefore, you would need 3 Explorers to haul KOTOR from best buy to your house. don't even get me started on how much shipping would cost if you order it online...:eyeraise:

i think its absolutely amazing to figure out what happens when you crunch the numbers. :D

crap, now i'm getting brain cramps again..... :rolleyes:

edit: oh, and you asked for the size of the box: 6'x6'x6'. ;)

ahh, much better now. ;)

if you want me to be honest about the calculations i did: almost all of it was simple math. figuring out what to do with the calculations is really not too difficult. the only part that was somewhat difficult was trying to set up the derivative to figure out the minimum dimensions of the box. i'm sorry, but finding the minimum of a 3-variable expression is just a tad bit harder than it sounds (since it produces a 3-dimensional graph, and you have to find the tangent plane instead of a line). fortunately, i have my trusty ti-89 with me to help out. ;)

looks like those three calculus courses are actually starting to do me some good......

Yes, I got it from EBGames downtown...also went to Futureshop a few corners away but it wasn't arrived on the 9th.

Hey.

Based on the new flood of topics, I'd say the PC version is out. :D
