I was in Game in Bath today and was told all versions release on 18th, despite them having ps2 boxes on the shelves with 'released on 11.03.05' on them. Very confusing but reckon there's prob an outside chance we'll see it on Friday
Need video on Easports website called Whats in store. See link below:-

EASports video page

At the end of this video it also reveals that the games "In stores now".

Are they taking the **** or what!?
ea are a load of **** they dont know how to announce a stupid release date for god sake.

i expect it to be here on friday but i wouldn't be suprised if we dont see it for a month!.

yes i think they are having a laugh at us there.
It means it's in stores now in North America.

I mean, sure, it'd help if EA took the 12 seconds to list the official release dates in every region around the world -- but that would be helpful.
but the uk aint every region,its the third largets media market in the world,behind the states and japan.
Yehah, from Xtravision on Baggot St. They didn't have the box for it though. I can answer q's in the unlikely event anyone still has any.

Are you trying to get me to say the UK is important?

Or do you want me to think for EA and why they did this or that?

Both questions are too daunting.

Do we know if the game is out in Japan? I have no clue what EA are up to, all I'm saying is that they could have taken the time (again, 12 seconds) to make a better release of this game.
yeah,im just shocked and appalled of the distribution of the game,bits and bobs in ireland an s.a.
Ireland ...

... why wouldn't they give it to us, sure we're great craic !
