    According to IGN.com some Poles were able to buy their copy of that very Anticipated game one month before its relese day.
    Let's hope it will leak soon :)

    Man, I wish the PC copy was leaked first--so much easier to rummage through for unused and interesting things D:

    One could say that they hold the Pole Position.

    One could very much say that indeed!

    How can do they manage to afford it anyway? I thought they were a Po'-land, not a Rich land!

    My question is, why does a store even have it a month before release day? Wouldn't they ship it out perhaps a week or two before release?

    Have no idea. Probably the mistake was made by disc printing company first, and the store just followed the trend. On the other hand, Europe is huge, many different countries, different infrastructure, so probably they started shipping it as early as possible to be ready for relese date.

    The latter sounds quite likely, companies will often ship their games a while in advance. Tons of games are released before their street date, how do you think pirates see their game releases a week before most other people?

    One would at least hope that someone was able to rip a copy and put it online.
