I bet a bunch of people are scanning the newsgroups right now.

I fully expect "Ryrom" to leak the game again.
 
Well since its gold, the discs are being made right now. All in all i just hope heads will roll and blood will spray if anyone gets it before the 25th, yes because i am that bitter.

It's nigh impossible for those to be real. If it went gold two days ago, then they'd have to get the master to the pressing factory, press them, make the boxes, print the manuals, and ship them to EUROPE(?!?) in under two days.

Stranglehold just went gold and it releases in what, 4 days?

Who is to say that it did not go gold two weeks ago and they just made a press release about it.

Damn I hope this isn't real, I don't want to have to forego 98% of the internet for a month.


Can gaf mods instill a permaban for anyone talking about actual game content prior to the release date? I mean, if your talking about what's going on on level 3, then that would mean you pirated the game. I hope gaf is at least safe from talk of the game until release date, I really don't want to do a blackout on the site.

Yeah. There was a thread about Stinkles playing it before the announcement.

We can't play it until 9-25, so what does it matter?

This is a gaming discussion forum and maybe the fans of the game care? But then again, I guess it's cool to play the 'who cares?' card.

If they are Dutch, upright and breathing they are more racist than your favorite player
That signs in Italian, I think. Definitely not Spanish nor French

Not real. If they were real, the guy with the camera would have beaten them to death and stolen them instead of taking pictures. That's gold in those boxes. You could basically name your price. $300 to get Halo 3 almost a month early? Sure!

You'd think so. They had a permaban warning like that when Harry Potter was released. This is bigger than Harry Potter in these parts.

Good point, but then again they might be throw into a jail for robbery or something, well at least theres no legal way for them to walk out of the store with those games.

Must be the spanish signs.

Those guys are Italians. "NOSTRO ORA" means IT'S OURS NOW! and the date displayed means that they managed to have the game on 08.30.07.

I know for sure since I am italian, too, but I think those boxes are just display cases.

- People who don't want the story spoiled for them

- People who don't want the excitement surrounding the game dilluted because of leaked copies

Why release the game a day after NA in Europe then, If Europe is already recieving copies?

To spite you.

Anyway, I'm more intrigued by the REDDOGG733 guy that has the game, than these other people with what's potentially display cases.

MS is getting back at the EU for fining them. It's the only logical conclusion at this point.

My aunt & uncle run a Mom & Pop store, "The Gamecube Hut", and sold 80k WiiU within minutes of opening.
All those copies of the game and they haven't sold a single one? Wow.

Doesn't bother me, I live in North America. But it would seem odd. I just think it's a funny little ruse from some italian guys. Of course if it is real, then oh boy...no more internet for a few weeks.

They should let the people who preordered the legendary edition go ahead and pick it up. They should do something for us dummies who are paying that much!
