Here we go!

Somewhat split between "YES IT'S ALMOST HERE!!!" and "It'll come one day later on the pc... :("

Hey, but at least we'll get the podcast on the 13th :)

(I hope the "extra" 5$ goes to you and not the service providers, but if it doesn't, I suppose that can't be helped)

Just wondering about the PC release...

Are the multiplayer modes still in there? I mean, very little PC games have local multiplayer? Or are you doing online multi for the PC?

Either way, I'll likely buy it on the 360 first, with the other two versions later. Can't wait for the 13th now, thanks Gearoid!

Worldwide goes off at what time?

So, at 00:01 +12 hours GMT, August 14th, I'll be able to buy BCR off steam, right? RIGHT?

Outstanding!

This is great news!
But will the features like using the Classic BC Nathan Spencer "skin" work across the platforms? Or are we locked into getting the 3D BC on the same platform?
Keep up the good work!

more on those unlockables

Aside from cross-platform, what about cross-digital-distributor? I doubt there's any problems in any combo, but I'll ask anyway.

Europe Release

Why should us English speaking ppl within PSN Europe have to wait for this. Can't you just release a English version for us. I don't think non English speaking Europeans will mind and personally its just stupid when Microsoft is doing a worldwide release. I'm guessing it something to do with Sony Europe but come on. Can finally a developer just tell Sony Europe to release an English version at the same time as the US version. I can forgive the miss spelling of some words "Colour" = "Color" if it means some BCR goodness.

yeah!

Its funny that ages ago, I was treated to a sigh of relief after asking when the game would be released. With everyone responding that europe wouldnt be left out in the cold. How ironic then, that I'm using the PSN. It couldn't just be as easy as allowing the players to get the game on time, could it? there would have to be SOMETHING to stop us from getting it when we technically should get it.

Ah well, looks like we'll just have to wait for PSN europe to get with the programme.

WOOHO- oh wait....

Any word on when it'll be on the European PSN or what the hold up is (can't imagine it being localisation issues as it's ready for European release on 360 and PC)?

sad panda

Well, I think the problem with the European PSN versions is not the translations.

I'm from Spain and I always buy the US version of the PSN Capcom games because they're always released months before and also have the European (at least the Spanish) translations.

I think the problem is more about submission slots windows scheduled of the PSN. Maybe Sony only allow a limited number of slots to Capcom, so Capcom can't allow worldwide releases and they prefer to delay the European versions.

Capcom prefers to release before the game in Japan and USA. See Capcom IR projections (http://ir.capcom.co.jp/english/data/market.html): PAL market wil become #1 market of the world this FY.

Please guys stop shitting us, the European users. Untranslated games like Okami won't sell here. And PSN delayed games in Europe means a lot of people buying the game in the US store instead of the Europeans stores. If this is going to be the #1 market, please take care.

stupid stupid stupid

From IGN.com:

Sony Europe's David Reeves from this year's E3.

"When the US launches, we could launch in Australia and we could launch in New Zealand and the UK," said Reeves, "but if we did that then our colleagues in Italy and France and Germany and Spain would not be very happy so we've chosen to stick to the strategy of doing it pan-European and pan-Australia and New Zealand."

Does that make sense? not really! i live in denmark and english is basically a second language here, we play games and watch movies in english. Why is it that the SCEE just now realized that they have to do translated versions of the games? everything gets delayed for months over here, and there is absolutely no difference to the american versions as far as i can see. The executives at SCEE are a bunch of lazy pricks sitting in their office doing absolutely nothing, what else could the explenation bE? god im so pissed right now :(

anyway i will just get it from the american store and/or Steam so it dosent matter that much to me, it's just a pain to muck around with multiple accounts. Somebody do something dammit!

"Finally! It gives us great pleasure to officially announce that Bionic Commando Rearmed will launch WORLDWIDE from next week."
