    R&C Trilogy out early after all

    I went into my local EB games and talked to my mate and he said he has a copy of R&C already, (which is a month early if your following the delays)

    I didnt believe him but he said i can play it when he finishes it which will be before it releases officially. My main question here is ok managers etc can get early game releases and all that like Dr_Mayus, I assume you might have a copy as well?

    What bugs me is that they said the extra delay is to improve the game and features etc when clearly its already finished and it will still be a month before release for the public.

    Any1 else have thoughts on this?

    Well I won't get my copy until fall because North America is getting it late

    EB managers very rarely ever get things early. What could have happened is his store got it early and he broke street date and bought it (which comes with a massive fine if he is caught) or he just took it home without paying for it (which I know a lot of managers do).

    that still dnt make sense of why they sent out the game 1 month early ( if thats the case ) why would the devs wait for a month its its ready for launch?

    That is why I don't think he has it. I know in cases of major releases (like COD or Halo) stores will sometimes get it a couple of weeks in advance to make sure they have it (and trust me you don't want to break those street dates) but in the case of the R&C collection it is not big enough to warrant anything more than a couple of days in advance.

    Edit-I just checked the Australia release date and it is June 7th. Your friend just broke street date (or took it home without paying for it).

    Sorry if off topic, but why would anyone ever admit to breaking street date if you could get away with just saying you took it home w/o paying for it?

    Because taking it home without paying is actually worse, most managers do it but it is an unwritten rule if they were ever caught they would be fired.

    Also companies don't care whether you paid for it or not, the great thing about achievements and trophies is they have time stamps so companies could check if you played their game early. Now most don't care but in the case of COD or Halo it is a big deal.

    When I worked at Blockbuster, Rogers Video sold Halo 2 early and because of that they weren't given the 360 at launch (which was a big plus for us).

    Maybe he doesn't realize it is a big deal. I don't know what it is there, but I've heard that here if you break street date it is a 10,000 fine to you and to the store.

    You're actually right. Most of the times games get delayed to build up hype. Others it is to avoid a release date close to that of other popular titles, but this is clearly not the case with this one lol. A clear example of delaying a game just to build up MORE hype, is Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

    Ratchet & Clank

    I was in EB today and they had it advertised as coming out in May but had no date and no copies on the shelves would have asked them about it but they were really busy.
