You guys have got to feel for me. I'm a PC (prefered) gamer living in Australia. Not only does the release deliver a blow on the PC front, but once again us PAL regioners are left until often days before the US release before we even know if the game's being released here, let alone when.

It was on time last year, i.e., Aug 15th. Hopefully it's the same for 2010 but you just never know with EA, especially when it's the perfect time to use the economic yadda yadda as an excuse to forget us.

I feel you since I live in Germany and we have the PAL System too.

The worst part for me is though that I'll be in the states from the beginning of June through August 11th, 3 days before Madden drops in the states. Otherwise I could have gotten myself the NTSC version and taken it back to Germany, since Madden is one of the few games that is regional codefree on the 360 ( at least that was the case with 09).

Damn, I only hope the release in Germany will be very close to the US release, otherwise I'll hate on everyone in this forum already playing Madden 10

If it's region free again (although I didn't realise it was in 09 as mine says PAL on the front??) we can always import it.

But, I don't think there is any way EA would not ship the game to PAL territories as it does very good business in these regions.

From memory I can't remember any Madden game not getting a release in PAL regions or for that matter, being anything more than a few days later then the North American release date.

If it didn't get a release on the 360 in PAL territories it may be time to invest ina PS3.

On a Friday? Hmmmmm... that's different. I like change.
 
# 20 RJTheDestroyer @ 04/01/09 06:48 PM
Yeah, I thought they were planning on releasing it for the PC this year...I'll be getting it for the 360 anyway, so it better be good (which it seems like it should be greatly improved over previous years' versions).
