I just spoke to my local gameshop and they said that the previous date July 9th probably wouldn't be correct either. They said they had just gotten an e-mail from UK stating that the game wasn't even finnished yet!! :eek: What does THIS mean???

I'm voting for christmas, if we're lucky... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/bash.gif

Maybe you guys will get a game without bugs...

NatEcho

I have no idea!! But that's what the guy said!

Core/Eidos are fixing some of the bugs for the European release, but I still don't see what they mean with "not finished"... :confused: Confusing!

Maybe they're just not finished fixing the bugs.

Even though I live in America and already have the game, I'd be p*ssed if I knew some other country has it and I don't. On the other hand...why are they fixing yours and not ours?

Yeah, it's REALLY weird!!! It's one thing to fix the bugs! That's great! But why did they release it WITH the bugs to the US??? Makes no sense to me! It's really unfair to the americans, if you ask me!

I really don't know what to think anymore... :(

eidos had to rush the game out in america so they could make money of course :rolleyes: but delaying the europe version till after june will cost them alot because june is the end of their finacial year so they had to get money from the americans otherwise they would have gone bankrupt, and out of business! :eek:

As much as I am desperate to play AOD, I don't fancy having a game full of Bugs. I think that Eidos has had so many different reasons and answers to the delay of this game in the UK it seems to me that what better way to shut us all up than to tell us that our copy is not going to be full of bugs like the US copy. I mean how are we going to know if it is any different? Bad play all round to Eidos for shipping a sub standard game to the US in the first place for the time we have all waited we should all expect a great game...guess we have to just wait see :rolleyes:

We never know about these things for sure, Thorir. This is what the guy in my local gameshop said. Also note that this may only concern sweden for all we know...

Didn't mean to scare you! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/hug.gif

Well, we must look at the positive side... Hopefully we`ll get a bug-free game. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

The norwegian stores still say 4th... *Hope* http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

Could be fun, Nat! :D

But make sure the game IS released here first, though! ;) And games are far more expencive here! But Tomb Raider is worth it. ;)

I`m going to CRY if it`s not released the 4th...

It's horrible to see everyone so down because of Eidos/Core, BUT it is great to see that I'm not the only one!!!

ps: I don't want to be the bearer of bad news but if it's being released next week, why isn't TRAOD in the magazine's and why don't they announce it on the official site??!! :confused:

NatEcho
27-06-03, 20:01
Really?? AOD is gonna cost 569 here (ps2) and 469 for the pc... That is WAY more than most countries. :(

Thorir
27-06-03, 21:42
Natalie, most games cost 599 kr here. A little more expencive. Still A LOT more expencive compared to most other countries!

Well... Tomb Raider is worth it!

I don't think the game will be delayed again. If not on June 4th then on June 9th for sure. All gamestores here claim that. A game can never be bug-freed. There are always bugs in every game (alhtough most of them are not easily noticed!). :D

The american users of the forum said that the game might be buggy but it is quite fun, so it doesn't matter if it's buggy or not, the players just want to have fun, right? http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif
