Lots of comments about Canada and EU pre-orders so we wanted to address them:
To our European fans – Our counterparts in EU say not to worry, your pre-orders will be announced shortly. In all honesty, each SCE territory has different market challenges and consumer trends. In the US, pre-orders are emphasized a lot earlier in the product marketing messaging cycle. On the other side of the coin, some countries don't emphasize pre-orders as much (or at all). Also, Europe is especially tricky because there are so many different countries, and each country has their own pre-order programs - specific to their own retail partners and consumers. Then include "X" amount of business discussions, legal discussions, logistic issues, etc, add water, and then you have a pre-order campaign (or at least a quick snapshot of the pre-order process). In the end, it just takes time to execute – so please be patient.
To our Canadian fans – Apologies for forgetting about you – we didn't have details until today, but we have good news and 'gooder' news. First the good news – there will be 2* pre-order campaigns in Canada. The 'gooder' news is that the 2* items are Kratos SackBoy and Nariko SackGirl.
So...regarding Kratos SackBoy @ Canada, he'll be waiting for you at your local EB Games & GameStop stores (north of the boarder).
