Apparently EB released today. Which is 2 days early.

Last I heard, which was 2 days ago, auth servers not online till late tomorrow night, for midnight releases.

Which I'm sure could have changed. But if so, not heard about it.

7th is for the US and dig dist I believe.

4th was for here.

Some EB's were selling as early as Friday of last week.

Australian EB stores though?

Check my post previous page - None of the canbra stores recieved stock on the weekend like expected, and I believe that was the reason for the delay it not being released yesterday as expected

Ill keep an eye on those servers though

They may end up bringing up things early, like I said, things can always change. But as of right now... we've been told Thursday is still the live date.

EA's also offering no official support till Thursday. So if you do buy it, and it doesn't work, don't contact EA till Thursday. After Thursday EA will be more than happy to assist.

The early break was QLD mostly due to some public holiday or something. So game was shipped on Friday rather than yesterday there and some shops wacked it on the shelf that day. Other places started to follow suit over the weekend and here we are today.

Trickle down effect ftl.

For sale in EB at Mt Ommaney, they weren't saying anything to the people buying it that they wouldn't be able to play until Thursday? (Though EB aren't known for there massive knowledge of games or the industry ;) )

Came out on the 2nd. Thats when EB released as well as GAME where i got it from.

One thing im annoyed about is that i thought the galactic edition came with some Nat Geo doco about Spore, when all that i got was the SPORE making of. I'm thinking it could have been a USA only thing which contributed to our early release.

ANYWAY, on to the cool stuff. I gotta say some parts of the game have me impressed beyond belief and some bits are underwhelming. It's because the game tries to do so many things, and understandably doesn't pull everything off. I think the concept is just so big and deep that it may not be able to live up to the hype. It is still a amazing game. I just started the space game and i think this is where it really opens up. The other parts of the game probably only took 6-8 hours to get through, but I don't think i will fully understand just "what" this game is until i've finished space game, and by the look at all those stars... that could be awhile.

Q)
When I start SPORE I get an error which says a required security module could not be activated. WTF?
A)
If you are using Process Explorer, it is being detected by the SPORE copy-protection as a threat and is stopping the program from running.
You can disable Process Explorer and reboot and this should fix the problem.



*cough* SecuROM *cough*

Other than that, EB Games at Roselands got their stock on Monday so I thought I'd pass the news on.

Did anyone else get the "How to Build a Better Being" DVD in the CE? I don't see where it could go in the package unless it was just in a plastic sleve somewhere. Also the package was in shrinkwrap so nothing could have gotten out.

It's not advertised on the box at all either. It could be because its a doco by Nat Geo which may not be able to be sold in Australia yet or something.

LOL :P

I'm just wondering if the online content is worth ~$80...
I'd be happy if you guys convinced me.
