What really pisses me off is that I have to wait a whole 2 extra days to play just because I'm not in the US. Why in the hell do I have to wait when I pre-ordered and paid the same money as everyone else???

And sometimes you'll get it first. Some games will launch on Friday in the UK and the next Tuesday in the US.

Blame your brick & mortar system. It isn't like this hasn't been discussed to death. It will be broken soon, but for the time being every country still operates on its standard delivery dates. In part because there's the belief that more people will see something online and expect it to be in stores than there are people will see it online in other regions and expect it to be available in their own.

That would make more sense if I was even in Europe. I'm in the freaking Caribbean and Steam doesn't even treat me as a european customer. Maybe I'm outside classification or some such nonsense.

Do movies/games typically come out on Thursdays for you?

I agree it's silly, but given that it's about a billions degrees below zero in the US I consider it a worthy tradeoff for the awesome weather you're likely having. No matter what unfair advantage we're getting, it's a tradeoff for crappy weather!

So I have to get penalized for having decent weather now? Pout
