No, those regions broke street date. Everyone else should be releasing the game on the specified official release dates for their regions.

I don't think so, OP. I tried to extort my local gamestop by threatening to take my business to Spain. Didn't work. :nonchalance:

We receive a email at our store today about the gamestops in France and Spain breaking release date. The email said the GAs (game associates) and managers have been terminated from the initial stores that broke the dates, and GameStop will be filing charges. Also if any other store in any other region or country outside those two breaks release date we'll be jailed.

Hey Shade, how bad is marketing tripping out? Gamestop's is bugging bad.

Not one to say, since office hours are over - they are most likely in the pub ;)

Because what the stores in the continent of Europe did was illegal... That's why.

Yeah you can't just break release day like that without expecting Ubi and GameStop or whatever shop released early to take some action over it. Those guys that fired in those stores over early release likely had that coming. You don't just go back on a legal agreement like that.

Looks like to me the street date will continue to be broken. It's a matter of profit, and no business really worries about the 'legality' of such things when they can turn a quick buck and hide in the crowd. It's the nature of capitalism, the dollar is a law unto itself. Australia will have an early release. I'd bet on it.

I think it's funny how people keep bringing up the US breaking release. We practically invented Legal Jiu-Jitsu, and if there's one thing we care more about than God and Sex, it's Money. If Gamestop did this in the states, I wouldn't be surprised to see Ubisoft owning them when the legal smoke cleared.

GameStop here in the states are on high alert. If someone sells the game before release date the police are called. Until release date hits the game is still GameStop property, and selling it is selling stolen property. It's even stated in our new hire policies that we sign. The policies are even enforced in our stores outside the states.

If they were, how come they were released before the release date?

From what we've heard through rumors is that the GAs were paid off by the first and then customer dam just broke.

I quit reading after page 2 in utter disgust but he said "his copy came" don't sound like gs had anything to do with it as I wasn't aware they shipped games to people through mail.
