Harvey Norman Australia has broken the street date for Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim accord to EB Games. Go out and get it NOW! Follow the link for more information.
Will pick my copy up in an hour
that's bad for Us as gamers! and unfair too!.. but anyway it will release tomorrow. Enjoy u Australian bastards and plz no spoilers
Your games are usually about $30-40 cheaper than ours here in Australia and everyone on PC still has to wait. Chill out.
We didn't get Uncharted 3 until 3 days after you guys.
If memory serves, many releases see long delays before arriving in Australia. They get one a day early? I'd say they've earned it.
In Canada we have EBgame does it mean I can go pick my copy???
Actually I am pretty sure the Australian PC copy is live anyway. People have been using VPNs to get a leg up all day. Here in the Uk it is only an hour away so I am pretty sure its live over there
Take those Skyrims back now, you bastards!
Oh Harvey!A Big fine for you guys, Skyrim for us!
Doesn't mean Amazon will ship any sooner, unfortunately.
So... does this mean I can pick up my GameStop copy now as well?
Sorry son this is for Australia only. We don't even have a Gamestop here, instead they're called EB Games.
Humph...gamestop bought out eb games here in the us
My mall used to have an EB games then it was converted to a gamestop
GameStop owns EB Games here too, just no name change.
If the street date is being broken overseas it should also be broken here in the United States. Global economy global street date. Maybe I am just a dreamer.
Here in Belgium, the game is already out since Tuesday. Probably has something to do with Armistice on 11/11, when we have an official holiday. Same thing happened with uncharted 3, which was suddenly released on Saturday instead of Tuesday like the rest of the world. It's absolutely unfair but I can only applaud this new tendency, because most often Europeans have to wait several days longer than their American gamer colleagues.. I didn't pick the game up yet, but I've read some alarming reports on forums stating the ps3 version suffers from serious frame-rate drops in the beginning of the game. That's the only real downside when a game is released sooner than expected; there's not a single review out to inform you about the technical issues of the game.
The suspense is killing me.
Has pete hines commented on this yet?!?!
Just got my copy from eb games gonna be a long night
i wish gamestop would break the release date like WAW
By the Nine!
Australia is making a habit of this. They break street dates ALL THE TIME! I know for sure that they did this with Batman: Arkham City
BF3 broke here too. Happens more often than not for big releases.
I wish the U.S. was like that, lol. For some reason stores in the U.S. hold to street dates like the owner's family is being held hostage and will be killed if the game makes it out of the store even 2 seconds early. =P
I wish I was in Australia!
Stop right there criminal scum!!
I got mine a today through the post (UK), the game is amazing and completely worth the wait. Bye bye COD, hello Skyrim.
Unless this was pre-arranged, I could see Bethesda delaying shipments of future games to this retailer.
35 minuites till steam unlock in Uk
I hope so!! My physical copy came in the morning today.. I was damn excited and ready to play the game only to see "blah blah has not yet released"... I really hope it unlocks at midnight bro!
unlocked dead on midnight :D
i have it and have just killed my first dragon. :) i got the CE. so far the game is brill :)
Bad Title! The game itself did not break it's own street date. Retailers in Australia did.
I been playing it all day and im in the uk.
It's out on Long Beach California
