NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO :mad: :swear:

20 days? thats for Sydney... so my guess it would be at least a week after that to get to Perth... Thats like a month after America!:swear: :swear:

Theres no way I can wait 2 and a half months for this game.

Hopefully a demo will prevent me from commiting suicide. (yeah lucasarts, how would you like that on your conscience?)

the only game we got b4 the UK people was RtCW!!! which was distrubed by Activision and because Activision are gonna distrubute JK2 to the rest of the world then maybe we will get it b4 the UK people.

note: i cant spell and theres no time for spell check (god will forgive me)

Well RAVE, seeing as you had the first review, I think its only fair if WE get the game first.

please dont mention Ep2
It will be here in July
and I dont care much about JO, because I will preorder it from the US
It will probably be here about a month or more later, and with a terrible translation

LucasArts and Raven should have a international release for JK:JO, its only fair.

I hope LA or Raven could shed some light on this. :confused: :confused: :confused:

Activision is responsible for the release at some parts of the world (most I think), so Its not something that concerns LEC only

I doubt we will see international releases for games anytime soon, they cant even do it with movies :mad:

Judging by all other releases over the years, we shouldn't get it much longer after it's released in the USA.

Australia is a place where big companies stooge us left ,right and center (mainly telstra).

Metal Gear Solid 2 is getting 4 month delay for Australian release. It's been out in the US since about December 2001, Australia gets it March 2002. I don't really think Japanese gaming companies care about Austraila ( YOU HEARD ME CAPCOM YOU *****!!). Most of the NTSC to PAL converted games (eg Devil May Cry) get poorly converted. The screen is not maximsed, it runs 20% slower than the NTSC versions etc etc etc!!

This backdoor screwing is not localised to the gaming industry either. TV shows appear half a year to a year after they debut in the U.S. I'm still waiting for Band Of Brothers to be shown, Enterprise and Smallville (is that any good?).

I don't want to get started on the monopolised telecommunictaions market because that will arouse too much hatred.
