I'm a Melbournian to be exact :) and I'd just like to know if there are any others. The Australian release is not until April 1st, which sucks. but still, I'm sure we'll be able to work through that rough patch, lol.

So if ur an Australian, sign here and let ur voice (or text in this case) be heard! If ur not an Aussie, stop by and tell us what part of the world you are from.

Hey fellow Aussie, did you hear the great news?
Michael Atkinson, the bane of gaming and logic, has announced he will retire in 2014, joy to the country.
I'm just glad his idiotic views haven't gotten this game censored too.

Another aussie here. I've been checking the local storess hoping that some silly person has put out the game a few weeks early. No luck :(

EB have to be the dumbest store ever. For someone who's supposed to specialize in games, they know jack$h!t about anything. I went to Kmart to price a game they had in stock, then i went to EB a few shops down and asked them if they had the same game. They guy looked it up on his little screen under the desk and told me the games been delayed and doesn't have a date for it. I told him "that's funny, the game came out in Kmart last week and i'm off to buy it coz you wouldn't know what a console is". I never shop at EB. They sell brand new games for $110 and pre-owned same game for $99? WTF?

Hate how they're playing games with us, (Pun intended) no Australian option on their JC2 official website, Australia gets JC2 a week later! We pay more for games that are pressed and printed in our region. Total crap. I guess it doesn't matter though, we get to live in the best country in the world! Go Brisbane!

Consider this SIGNED. MOFOS!!

the prime reason for shopping at EB is the 7 day return policy which has saved me hundreds of dollars from games that either suck or i've finished in a week also they pricematch any other store so the price is nothing to worry about

and no i don't work for EB

also my local EB has really nice knowledgeable staff who love a good chat about enything to do with games but then again there's another EB i went to in Sydney and they were horrible. . .

oh and the other reason for shopping at EB is the fact that they are the only ones with the JC2 limited edition.

Thats so funny, I've been doing the exact same thing. I asked an employee today about an early release, and she said if she sold a copy early, not only would she be fired, but the company would also be fined $20,000. Ouch!

True, they do the 7 day return policy, but i just don't buy games that suck in the first place :). I usually rent them or borrow them from someone i know first to see if i like it, and i never finish games within 7 days because of work, kids, other hobbies, etc.

As for the limited edition, JB Hi-Fi always have limited editions. Even if you don't pre-order it, my local JB just hands out the limited edition anyway when you go in to buy it.

If anyone finds a retailer selling early copies of JC2, please post, or buy a few extra copies:)

Apparently this time is different though, only EB have the 5 DLC items here in OZ when you pre-order.

EB are getting more aggressive in this respect

they are getting exclusive deals to be the only ones to stock special editions

1st of April, eh? April Fools much?

I feel sorry for you Australians, some people already got the game a few days ago. But I guess it's worth the wait.
