It's a bit early for it to be in the stores yet. I do expect it Wednesday at my local store.

I notice that release days here in the US are tuesdays. Yet in the Sunday paper that has all the ads, I saw no mention of <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beyond.gif" alt="" />. I have my BestBuy credit card all set. There is enough on there yet for <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beyond.gif" alt="" />, and maybe a new music CD or 2! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" />

Whats the deal, I went into EB and they're telling me the game won't be made in Aust anymore so I cannot get it? I have to find a store thats got it? I said Beyond Divinity, so there was no error on my part.

If it wasn't released fine, I'd wait, but I am being told NO MORE COPIES! whats the deal, anyother Australians heard anything about this BS?

I hope it's not true, but if it is I will have to order from the US <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/memad.gif" alt="" />

Edit: Hmm, maybe they're talking about the release that was planned but put off to make changes? but they wouldn't know about that would they? So should I just wait and see if it's released?

Best Buy always seems to lag a few days behind places like EB in getting in the new games. They never seem to get the games on release day. Hopefully in your area it works differently, but if not, then it might explain why your paper makes no mention of the game yet.

I'll check my sources and get back to you, but I don't trust EB and I no longer buy anything from them after the way they've messed me around in the past. Often, they decide not to sell certain games. Gothic is one that leaps to mind.

They didn't sell Gothic? funny how they can stock really crap games yet boycott others that are good. I don't really believe what they say but this took me by surprise, they looked Beyond Divinity up and said it was recalled and wouldn't be coming out and that I would have to order from the US?

I don't get it <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />

Short update on Aussie availability. According to my colleagues at RPGDot, there is currently no publishing agreement for it in Australia. However, some sites are listing a publisher, but that publisher has no mention of it on their site. Dhruin will phone them tomorrow and ask for clarification. One of us will post a follow up, as soon as we have some information. If it's not going to be available, I can give you the names of several game sites that will sell and ship to Australia; I use them a lot.

Games Warehouse is advertising that Beyond Divinity will be available from May 21st, and are taking pre-orders now, if you're interested in purchasing via mail order from within Australia (thus avoiding the currency exchange hit).

http://www.gameswarehouse.com.au/longpage.asp?gameid=9397

Otherwise, it seems the same old sad story when it comes to Australian distribution of new release PC games in general.

There is a publishing agreement in Australia. QV Software (no info on the website available as of yet) will publish <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beyond.gif" alt="" /> in this territory.

Hope this helps <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" />

I'd say make it clear that the game hasn't actually been released yet. They probably are talking about Divine Divinity. You've heard more than me. I haven't been able to get a release date or even anyone who knows about it in Melbourne.

That was the publisher's name we were given, but as of yet we haven't been able to obtain any confirmation. I'll check back with Dhruin as soon as I see him online.

Sorry this comes as a double post, but this is the latest info on Australian publishing, based on a phone call made by Dhruin from RPGDot.

"I called QV Software: Australian release is supposed to May 3rd @ AUD$69.95 RRP. I was promised major retailers would be buying it - although not in large quantities so persistence might be required. They took mild offence at the idea that it's not on their website but I'm not smart enough to find it."
