Hopefully in return, American version will be loaded with extras if they do get it later.

(Europe already got the MGS2 extras that many people would die for so )

Hmmm, this just doesnt make sense at all. It was made in America therefore it will have the American language. Then the local verisons should come afterwards. Therefore meaning that the American version would release first, or at least a world wide release on the same date. But the other way around??? Oh well, pay day is tommorrow and I'll be headed to my local Babbages, and Best Buy just in case, so thanks for the heads up

i highly doubt that the game would be released in australia before america, also stores will often get copies of game boxes and put them in stores as a promotional thing, if they had the game in the store why would the guy say maybe thell be on sale tomorrow? im sure if u slipped him 5 bucks or something they would sell u a copy then and there, trust me i used to work there and i did it tons of times so either this is an australian joke or jsut a promo thing for australian eb.....

I called up my EB Store here in New Hampshire and they said that it won't be coming in until the 28th of this Month. I have already pre ordered my copy. So when will I get the free shirt? Will I get the Shirt when I go and pick up the game the day it comes out.

Thats what it is, a rumor.

Since when do sales people know anything? They dont.

To prove you my point, i called my EB store up here in LA, and ask the sales guy when JK2 is due. He goes like 'hang on a sec'....
'oh yeah. Sorry but its been delayed til june'.

hmm i dont think i need to take it any further.

Regs: MGS2

It was released in the US first because the original MGS was a hit in the states and not Japan. So obviously they hit the stronger market first.

dont believe everything you hear, our friends from down under are lying. USA Gets it first and besides it wouldnt be $99 in Australia unless they had it imported from EBGames.com or something.

Okay - shaddup dude, cause i'm definatly not lying, and i hate being called a lier. I'm just reporting what the guys at my local computer store told me and Hoth was just doing the same.

Second, get your facts right - it WILL be $99 in australia because that's in AUSSIE DOLLARS which is a POVO CURRENCY (don't you ever listen to the stock market things on the news ) that's AU$90 (minus sales tax) which is US~$45. that sounds about right doesn't it?? good.

Just one thing to think about, i'm not sure about this (so yes, you can flame me if you want ), but local distributors do their own packaging and stuff. I remember this to be true because X-Wing Alliance (i think that was the game) was delayed for about a week because of a printing problem with the manual. That game was delayed only in aus. Plus, the date that's on the trailer says "official IN STORE date" - meaning everywhere will have it on the shelves by that date. meaning they ship to distributers sooner, so it is entirely possible that we are getting it earlier than you US guys simply because we shove things in boxes quicker

Anyway, that's just my thoughts - we'll find out if its true tomorrow i guess.

But what if us Australians do get it tomorrow, what if!?. I will check the shops by the way to make sure.

Also, if i do happen to buy it, i'll post a whole bunch of screenshots from the game. Thats a big if. This could be one big lie!!

This goes hand in hand with the topic I posted yesterday or the day before http://www.lucasforums.com/showthrea...threadid=34790 reported from EB Burwood for 22nd and Harvey Norman Broadway for 23rd of March. I'll ring up tomorrow morning but will have to report back later, I'm not sure about the time differences but it's around 5:20pm in Sydney, NSW right now. Expect me to report back around the same time tomorrow if it is out.

Hoth, did you ask if they were carrying the limited edition version? Actually, I could ring up right now and see seeing as it's late night shopping tonight.

i just called my local EB (melbourne, Australia-the chadstone one) and they said they WERE getting it in tomorrow, but there was a problem witht the shipping so it will most likely come next week sometime. But the woman said that they MIGHT still get it tomorrow so i should ring back. I don;t think it'll be coming to morrow but i'll bloody well check, thats for sure.

Well, just rang up 3 EBs in NSW. None of them actually have received it yet, but are still hoping to get it tomorrow morning and told me to ring up tomorrow to check. None of them know for sure if they're getting the CE, since they only have one JO down in their computers. *shrug*

I just got confirmation by email.

The distributor in Australia is Activision (normally the distributor here for Lucas products is Electronic Arts).

Chances are we'll get it tomorrow or at worst within a few days.

What sort of idiot would say we are making this up? lol. It's a GAME for God's sake. Is it really such a big affront to your ego that someone else gets it a few days before you?

I'll be thinking of LordRikerQ while I'm playing it tomorrow LOL
