    Is it me or are the NTSC games not coming out soon enough? Still no Bond, still no Rayman Rabbids 3, still no call of duty, still no star wars clone wars, still no shawn white, still no facebreaker... All these games are out for pal!

    They can't release what's not out... a lot of the games in your list haven't even been released in the US yet.


    The sense of entitlement on the net sickens me sometimes, it's amazing anybody takes the time to release anything.

    I believe he is asking why all the games are coming out in Europe before the US, I was wondering the same thing myself..but all the games you listed should be out in the next few days

    Well yeah, I was curious as to why WWE '09 came out in PAL first myself, but by his "Groups are slacking" I figured he meant scene release wise... I don't see what other groups he means.

    They are probably at the same place the NTSC game reviews are...

    I've been wondering this myself lately. Not feeling entitled or anything, far from it, but it seems REALLY strange that with games like Smackdown vs Raw 2009, Quantum of Solace, Call of Duty, and Shaun White, their PAL releases have been getting dumped days before their retail release, and yet the NTSC versions of none of those games have been dumped yet at all (and with the exception of Shaun White, all of those games have been out for at least a couple of days in the US). QoS is particularly strange since it's been what, a week or more since it was released? So in that respect, I can see OP's point in saying that the scene groups are (apparently) lagging behind.

    It's particularly bad for the Backup Loader users, since we now have verification that both the NTSC versions of QoS and Call of Duty work fine on 0.3.

    Games in the UK are put on store shelves well before their intended street date, whereas in North America the games are only shipped out on their street date. This is why UK games get leaked really quickly.
