Here's a good idea to combat piracy: Let's not release our games at the same date world wide!

Games release on Tuesdays in the US, games release on Fridays in the rest of the world. Releasing them on Fridays means we can have midnight launches and weekend long gaming sessions without affecting the normal working week.

Sort it out, USA!

I'm actually glad they release on Tuesdays. Tuesdays are usually my slow part of the week and chore days, so... yeah. Tuesdays are good for me. I dunno about everyone else. Weekends are usually my busiest times.

Most people don't work weekends. Games releasing on Tuesday comes form the movie industry and makes no freaking sense.

Can't wait for Cleavageshock to arrive.

Or was it Bioboobs?

Either way that game where the dude created this girl to be top heavy, yet doesn't want anyone to notice her top heaviness, but rather her personality.

The irony for me is that that's when I buy the least games, since I usually have more money going elsewhere than myself..

Wtf, does it matter when it releases?

Release it when it's ready and play it when you have time.

Or is it some sort of e-peen thing where you have to play the game before or at the same time everyone else does?

Actually it's pretty smart when it comes to movies imo. Not everyone will be able to see movies during the weekdays so it won't be as crowded on release day, and by Friday when the weekend crowd comes, the movie will have already been out for a few days so it won't be as crowded then either.

I meant retail release of movies. Most theater releases are on either Wednesday (to increase "first weekend" numbers) or Fridays (to score huge loads of people on opening night).

What's **** with staggered release dates in films, is you get months between regions (by which time the film as been spoiled-to-**** by the time it gets to your region). The same has applied to some games, but at least with only a few days different it's not too severe.

Yes, in today's world, region restrictions make no sense and are dumb.

A lot of software is released on Mondays and Tuesdays so that developers are on the clock if day one catastrophes occur.

Butttt yeah the Tuesday launch schedule for video games is a movie tradition.

I am pretty sure the Tuesday thing is so smaller game retailers have enough time to get in stock and do not get dominated by larger stores.

just in time for the great Halloween.

I'm sure they'll remind us when we get closer, so don't worry about holding your breaths, and with such a date to be announced that should mean it will be plenty FINISHED by the time it's released, right?
If not, they shouldn't feel ashamed to change the date to the 17th or 6:32pm on the 18th. I'm sure we'll live through the heart ache.
