EA is such a pathetic company sometimes it amazes me they're still in business. An entire month and not even a reason for the delay is just pathetic.

Why are the delaying they game for the Canadians? They are gamers too, and they need the same type of respect we American get

If you really want it, can't you just order from somewhere like Probably come out cheaper with the dollar being at like 1.05

Canadians are not allowed to order Electronics from that has changed recently

Thanks for your comment TheHater. I'm a Canadian and indeed, we want this game too! The bilingual reason is bullshit for me. I will try to get it at eBay now.

Check my comment below for an explanation as to why the bilingual stuff is probably 100% plausible...

Whoa there...I'm French (and as you will notice, also bilingual) and I'm telling you right now, I'm not to blame for this. If you watch a bit of news from Canada, you might have heard recently that the stupid fu**ing Quebec government adopted a law which requires a game and manual to be in French (a game in Canada usually comes with 2 manuals. One in French, one in English) or it could be banned from their province. This works in conjunction with the 101 law which states that in Quebec, almost all of ANY writing, whether it's on a store sign or governmental papers, has to be in French. So the fu**ing bureaucrats are to blame for this...

LMAO Harv, That's what I meant. Should have said blame the French language and the bureaucrats =)
