    Three days?

    Hardly a massive span of time.

    If it falls on the right side of RPG it'll rock.

    Stalker does seem to have started a trend. Watching the previews for Far Cry 2, Borderlands and this, they all give off that same vibe. Its probably that the technology has got to the point where these open and largely non-linear games are possible and stalker just got the first punch in.

    My thoughts exactly. I was thinking 3 weeks not 3 days. Given it's been years since the last one, three days I aint gonna mind.

    Fallout came 10 years before STALKER. Although STALKER and Bioshock are great, they are based on FO. Mix bioshock with stalker and you have FO.

    Still a long time to wait

    3 days is absolutely nothing. anyone who uses delays as a reason to pirate are just lieing to themselves... 3 weeks would be different, but 3 days is totally acceptable.

    but i have to ask... if theres only a 3 day delay. why not just wait the extra 3days stateside, to mitigate pirating anyway? if not for that reason, then to stop the staggered release idiots that usually moan forever about nothing. of whom i am one.

    Is it more to do with release days than anything else. for example games usually get released on a Thur/Fri here, when are they released in the US? TBH i can see the rates at which this is downloaded being huge but i also think many of those downloaders will also want there boxed version on Friday when its released officially.

    Like 3 days will make any difference to the number of people who will download it - it will get leaked on the net before the US date.

    Well here in Canada (and probably the states) most new games/cds/dvds come out on tuesdays. I know I am waiting for Ultra Beatdown to come out on tuesday :) So there you go, Tuesday the 28th and Friday the 31st.

    I know many people who does that, download a game they have already pre-ordered and be able to play it a couple of days before they pick up their real copy...
    But in the end i think those three delayed days will hurt Bethesda, couldn't they put Fallout on Steam and release it simultaneously all over the world? This is the year 2008, that can't be a real problem.

    Interesting. I think I may have to pick this up, though I'll probably wait 6 months or so.
