For european people- I've just signed off the silver test pressings today..

These discs become review code for magazines/websites, as it is effectively a release disc without the label stuck on top.

what?
........(i hate this minimum word crap)

When i master the code i create the final `disc`. This is sent off to the manufacturer, they create a glass stamper of the disc and then do a run of the discs without the disc label etc- this is called a test pressing. This is sent back to me to double check that it is what i `mastered` and everything works as expected.

These test pressing discs are used by Marketing to give out as review discs as they are exactly the same as the discs you will buy in the shop minus the pretty picture on top of it.

That make more sense?

I'd say we're the lucky ones, we have the whole weekend to play :) On a wednesday I would only have half a day to play before getting back to school.

sqall
8th May 2005, 15:49
I guess your right, thinking about it id prefer to get it on the friday and knowing that I have the whole weekend aswell.

Instead of getting it on wednesday and only having the night to play and then work the next day.

For the guy who lives in Oceania you could probly just order it online through an American online store and get it shipped there though i guess you might have to pay a bunch extra in shipping...

becuase the yankee market is larger and pays less :confused:

gets me that we pay 30 quid for a game and the yanks pay $40 thats only 20 quidish init :(

but then thier tax system may bumb that up a wee bit..

wouldn`t mind knowing that, is the price $40 subjected to addional tax or is it already inclued ?

You can get it for £17.99 in England (look online) - As for the early dates its because of distribution scales.. ie. US huge, UK not so huge..

I am rather mad right now: no Australian/Oceanian website, no news on when it is released here until I called a distributor, Good guys too, they have every software item in the last six months, and got T&P the day it was released in the US!

Other than that I have decided to mope for a week. Damn you eidos.

Thanks for the shared grief, I've found out that not a single one of my clan mates has been able to buy it yet, from Connetticuit to Texas and California, so that's cheered me up a bit (Yes, i'm soulless but no one's pefect :))

Hopefully the store gets it in on the actual day of release, because then i'll have all weekend to play it.
