The dates on some of these sales do not make sense. One of them says "On sale from 3-12-14 thru 24-12-14. What the hell date is that?

SniperControl1446d ago (Edited 1446d ago )

It's British format

3rd December 2014 to the 24th December 2014.

MSBAUSTX1446d ago

Ah my bad. I had no idea that was the way they did it. Thanks for clearing that up. I hate looking stupid.

NewAgeisHere1446d ago

No, this is not a British format,it's format used by most of the world......

Qrphe1446d ago

You meant to say the standard format but that's OK

Xof1446d ago

I think they call it "netrick." Crazy cult.

USMC_POLICE1446d ago

The usa is the only place that uses the date as we do and a 12hr clock. I wish we would join the rest of the world.

itBourne1446d ago

Lol, damn Americans! Those Arizonans are even worse, they dont do daylight savings either.

Abromb1446d ago

Standard format makes sense... Smallest to largest.

this how the uk show their dates. its pretty much december 3rd to the 24th.

pkb791446d ago

Day, month, year. Makes most sense that way around.

Immorals1446d ago

Never understood the mm/dd format. It makes no sense.

Oldman1001446d ago (Edited 1446d ago )

I prefer the m/d/y format myself. The reason for this is because If someone asks me what the date is I would say "December 3rd 2014" not "3rd of December 2014". If I say it out loud or to myself using the month before the day it makes the most sense to also format it that way when reading or writing it out. To each their own I guess.

Lord_Sloth1446d ago (Edited 1446d ago )

I've just always looked at it as the smallest peak number is 1st, then it counts up. There's only 12 months, but there can be up to 31 days, and of course the year is the largest but I'm weird anyways.

Link2DaFutcha1446d ago

That's how dates are shown pretty much everywhere else in the world.

''3-12-14 thru 24-12-14. What the hell date is that?''

....And this is why aliens don't communicate with us....

Remember, this is a place that found metric too hard to learn.

I mean
12 inches in a foot
3 feet in a yard
1760 yards in a mile

is much easier than

10 millimeters in a centimeter
100 centimeters in a meter
1000 meters in a kilometer


Dont get me started on Ounces and Gallons, I mean what the hell is that?

YoungKingDoran1446d ago (Edited 1446d ago )

Don't forget about temperature:

0°C - Freezing
100°C - Boiling
Easy enough
32°F - Freezing
212°F - Boiling

Too hard to learn metric? Sorry, but Americans are geniuses if they can understand how Fahrenheit works cause I'm stumped.

UKmilitia1446d ago (Edited 1446d ago )

well when u think about it british date format makes more sense.

yanks and altering normal formats :)

Alsybub1446d ago (Edited 1446d ago )

In the UK (and most other parts of the world) 3-12-14 reads - 'the 3rd of December 2014'. When read out loud the format makes more sense.

mmcglasson1445d ago


Are you really that incompetent or just ignorant?

MegaRay1446d ago

snookiegamer1446d ago


Dude, like seriously, even if you're not familiar with the UK date format...

You couldn't work that one out for yourself? Dang! you're so totally hilarious, but that's a FAIL all the same ;/

Oh yup! Super awesome for PS EU Store BTW LOL
