    The game didnt really look like it would appeal to me, but would have liked to have given it a try.

    This is one of the reasons why I bought a JPN cube, I knew Nintendo would pull stunts like this. Sell your cube and get a US version and import via DVDBoxoffice. www.goblindirect.com do import cubes. [the us/jpn versions can easily be made switchable between the regions]. Oh and AC rocks.

    Regards,
    Neil.

    I guess it's an aquired taste and the mighty Ninty decided that us Europeans would not be interested enough. Shame, as what the gaming industry needs is more original games. Long live the Monkey Ball!

    Call be racist or xenophobic, but I would think that Europeans (especially Brits) would be far more likely to get on well with a game like Animal Crossing than the Americans or Aussies.

    For sure we would, considering the games market is flooded with sequals like Fifa 26.3 etc.

    I think it's coming out in Australia, so if you want an english version that should also work on UK machines...

    Cybersoga - that's a top pointer. Don't suppose you know of any Exporters of Austrailian games?

    If you want an Austrailian supplier try dvdcrave.com

    I ordered Tiger woods 2003 and a Wavebird from them for around £40. No duty was paid when it was delivered aswell. Great service.

    If AC is going to be released over there then this is the place I will get it from. Bloody Nintendo, they need a rocket shoving where the Sun don't shine. Never under estimate the resolve of a European gamer!!

    As you can tell, I am fed up with Nintendo Europe.

    Cheers,
    Paul.

    Nice one Jim. I'll check 'em out. Like you, I am fed up with the way us European gamers get treated. The mighty Ninty are not the only offenders. Look at the amount of games for other systems released in US and Japan compared to what we get. It's shocking.
