FFS - does no one read previous posts??
its not an extra $50 - $99 is normal price for newly released games in aus. plus, $99 is the equivilant to $50 US - its just that our economy is crap, so our dollar is worth less.

who said anything about competiton? its mainly about getting a quality game sooner then expected which is a positive.

firstly - that wasn't a history lesson, that was a lesson on the present - but anyway.

This thread is all about when the game will be released in aus - hence it has a lot to do with getting it before the US. Plus it just proves what everyone already knew, that Australia is better the USA (*prepares to be flamed*)

As for who cares?? erm - everyone hanging out to buy the game down here cares

hehe....australia getting the game 1st? Seems a bit odd. Maybe thast the country were all the packaging and CD's were produced so it makes sense to release it there 1st if thats the case. I can only hope my pre-order here in the UK arrives soon

eb.watergardens.victoria.australia - "itll be instore tomorrow at 12pm" - "to buy?" - "yes"

eb.sydneysomewhere.australia - "it should be in tomorrow but thats not 100%"

so i guess we'll find out in about 16hours or less

and americans stop getting so jealous we play the game far better than you guys so its justice muhahahahah, whatever the case it looks like well be getting it way before the official release date

You are all forgetting the one major factor into Australia getting the game first: We have a smaller market. The master CD's are shipped over here, we burn the copies, whack em in a box and distribute them. Considering the population difference, last time I checked America had 300,000,000 ppl (correct me if im wrong..) and Aus had 20,000,000 ppl. That means you guys need about 15 times the amount of copies until it gets in store - that would take a quite considerable amount of time.

And for those saying "australian cant get the game first americas the best wahh", grow up. There are other countries than your own, that they have feelings too.

Ugh, damnit. Why'd it have to get released early? I don't have a strong enough will not to buy it at launch even tho I said to myself I'd only get it after reading reviews...

Good for the Australians.

Interesting how that's come about, after the "29th March" set date. Still.

As long as they post a few screenies, etc. We should be able to wait a bit longer...

Oh... and NO TEASING.

Look at it this way : the 29th of March is the date you'll definitely see it in stores. Some could get it earlier, but none should get it later.

My Local EB Store down the street says that I will be able to pick up my pre order on the 28th of this month. I assume that most of us will either get it the 28th or 29th of this month unless of course you ordered through LEC hehe.

I think you should ask at a store where you use to buy games. Or check the website of an online retailer.

A small request...

Aussies, I'm happy for you. (Even if I will have to wait an extra week!)

All I ask is some screenies, or something to keep me occupied while I wait. (Please) I beg you.

Lol!

its amazing to see how many people in this thread are in denile. I wouldn't be surprised if australia get it first and to be honest I wouldn't care either. As long as stores in england get some copies in, in the next couple of weeks, I'll be happy.

Like some other good forum members have said, good for you! I hope that you will be very generous and give us lots and lots of screenies.

I just want to have it before 12 on the the 30th.

I called my local EBX (I'm in the U.S.) and they say it'll be available there on the 28th. I'm going to go there soon to reserve my copy. Woohoo!

I never knew the boxes and stuff were manufactured in Australia. I've never seen anything with a "Made in Australia" label before.

I wonder if the box will.

I've got the same answer as lordvader and Jedimaster74. Local EBX store (USA) says the 28th for pre-orders. Glad for the Australians if you do get it earlier...you deserve it for once. Just try not to ruin/spoil the game for those who won't have it yet!!

Let them get it first, it's reward for having to live in that horrible country.
