I hope you're right, but PALGN changed the release date and everything. Maybe there is hope...

And they said that SOME copies had freight problems, and to make sure that every business has a chance to sell it no one is allowed to sell it until every company has it in stock. &lt;-- Did that make sense? I hope it made sense.

I would have actually done that from the get go most likely if there wasn't the sheer problem of regions. Chances are the game will be regionally locked (like EVERY console game) so unless you got a US console and a US game you won't be playing it on an australian console.

And of course my console isn't modded because it's still under warranty. So i can't use other region versions.

How about i pass out chocolate bars to 1 other sufferer instead? The former sounds like far too much work.

btw i don't think i'll be on the forum anymore for quite a while after today. Mostly because there'll be a billion threads talking about the entire plotline from start to finish.

Its a shame they don't have a regular pm system. The current one is pretty annoying. The only time i rememeber to check pms is when i get an email saying you have a pm.

Second, I'm way pissed about the unfortunate events that have happened for us Aussie gamers.

Third, I'm heading out to EB tomorrow to pre-order (Late, I know, but you know what they say, better late then never), and they'll tell me the deal then.

Actually it seems like it's a mix.... some places have supposedly received standard editions only (and at least one was sold) while others have the pre-order items but no actual games yet.

So it's anyones guess just when it'll turn up and depends on the store as to whether they sell it or wait for the new street date - I know of a couple of stores who's that consider it "policy" that if the street date is broken by one store then they'll do the same so they don't lose customers.

Suppose we'll just have to wait and see - could turn up tomorrow at this rate or Mass Effect could beat it to the shelves http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

On the PS3 one it says "Format:Worldwide compatable" Hmmm i think thats wrong... Either thats wrong or the fact that i didnt know games could be unlocked

Yo everyone mine is kinda long as well, so here:

Dear EB Games,

After reading the article about the shipment delay for Assassins creed it has come to my attention that you already have stock and was wondering if you are selling them on the so called "world wide release" (15th of November) to the gamers that have been anticipating this game and have gone into the liberty of pre-ordering this game.

It has come to my account that you might or might not have enough stock for the pre ordered gamers and have been wondering if you have considered selling to the ones that have pre ordered first or to anyone that has pre ordered that happens to arrive first (first come first serve).

I am most likely sure that i haven't been one of the first to pre order for i had only done it last week. Yet i believe there are other gamers out there that are going to come to EB on Thursday with disappointed and or angry reactions about this news. I have already witnessed this at another store a couple weeks back where their plans to sell this game had been terminated and all pre ordered customers had the privilege taken off them.

I have my last ever exam to do tomorrow and had "Assassins Creed" to keep me going throughout the past couple of weeks. Now knowing it has been delayed i am needed to wait an extra week.

Please i am looking to hear back from you
Dunksta

You should ask them what the actual point of pre-ordering is, where we pay for something that has not yet arrived, and that while doing that we have equal privlagers as those dordlers who randomly come in to buy it. WHATS THE POINT IN PREORDERING!?!?

Im really quite pissed now. Over the last two weeks I thought is was going to be released TODAY (got all excited) came on yesterday found out it was tomorrow. Went to EB games found out it was Friday (now I was really pissed off from that) then I come on tonight and find out its the 21st. Now im just sad. Hopefully all our pleas for pre orders to get it at the correct time work.

i have had 2 previous run-ins with eb over pre-orders, one, i ordered a series and they never rang, i went in and inquired about it, and they said they sold it to someone else, also, i ordered an anime dvd from them, then they got rid of all their anime but didn't bother ringing to tell me they wouldn't get my dvd in till i inquired about it

The reason they call it "street date" implies to the fact that they have it instores but they cannot sell (ie hand it out to the street) till the date. I am not too angry about the delay but i am angry about the false advertising and getting peoples hopes up. I bet there are going to be soooo many upset gamers on thursday.

actiontrip atleast have a sense of humour, this is what they wrote about the delay

"Dear inhabitants of the lands down under, Ubisoft is not keen on sharing their assassin with you. The release of Ubisoft Montreal's Assassin's Creed in Australia and New Zealand has been pushed back due to "manufacturing and freight difficulties".

You know what this means, right? The South Sea pirates sailed off with their bounty -- copies of Assassin's Creed that were due for Aussie and Kiwi lands!

Still, do not despair, the French Canadian treasure fleet should be sailing into your down-under ports come November 21. "

he raises a valid point, also, just spoke to my local EBgames and they said they only had a street date listed and didn't actually have anything in stock as the warehouses dont send the stock till the day or the day before to stop early sales, although he did seem abit like he was trying to dodge the issue, guess we are just going to have to wait and see

heres the reply i got from EBgames

Unfortunately this delay is out of our hands, this is due to international shipping delays, and is completely out of our hands, the new release date is the 21st of November.
