i was looking at EA trying to find a release date for Northern Strike for the us and i can across this EA website for europe take a look at the relaese date for NS in europe
kinda funny that we have to wait a week and they get on the 3rd
any way thought i would share this with you all
Yeah that seems kinda of messed up. but not really sure if that would be true as if they did that then Europe players would have a 5 day head start on things. Now if EA did that a lot of us americans are gonna be alittle upset.
The cake is a lie.There is no cake.
13th November 2004
Well, my order from play.com is out on the 9th, so yeah it's sucky. I mean, they're gonna be ahead with unlocks, which isn't totally fair.
i think this is great for one of the first times us europeans get a game first.
normally the usa goes first and do you hear us complain ?
Firstly, the unlocks.. The about 7/10 of hte awards can be won in a good 3-4 hour session playing. YOu could even save up unlocks now for the day you get NS, so you wont really be behind. Also I got 2142 about 10 weeks after its release and I have a good % of the unlocks (most of the player upgrades, all of assault, recon and support).
Also it is nice to get something first now and then. We already have ArmA for example (the sequel to operation flashpoint in all but name)...most of Europe does :D
who cares if they get it first i'v been useing unlocks for northern strike for like 4 days now so i geuss i have a advantage to.
