though unfortunately not available in Europe.

I'd like for itto be even without the prizes, though then I guess there wouldn't be that many playing for long.

How hard can it be to launch the game shows with prizes in europe anyway. The gameshows all run here anyway (mostly at least)

Primetime not available in Europe? What the **** is this?

I'm definitely not as excited for NXE anymore.

Because one feature isn't making it here? :blink:

Jeez what's your opinion on Nintendo these days then :p

December the 4th, look back on this post when its released and you'll see I know my stuff :)

Personally, I doubt they have a solid release date right now, just a general timeframe for when they want to release it -- e.g., a 10-day frame or so. But I will come back when it's released and give you your props/non-props :)

I think they'd ideally like it out November as if they market it and the new functionality it could sell some consoles so better sooner rather than later when it comes to XMas. I'd say late Oct to early to mid November. I'm guessing they will tell us when it's happening a week or two out from it happening.

You know what stuff? You'll guessing much like everyone else but December seems too late.

Avatars hopefully >_>

I was always led to believe that we'd be getting Primetime, but we wouldn't be getting the regular 'shows' that came with real prizes. I dunno, maybe it's just me. Kinda annoying if we don't get Primetime, but it wouldn't bother me too much as I don't pay my ?40 a year for virtual game shows now, so I wouldn't expect to start in the future.

Might be, they haven't really expanded on it much beyond saying we won't be getting the TV shows. I hope we'l begetting them without prizes and thepossibility of getting on the actual TV show. but I'm not holding my breath.

Why cant the prizes just be digital anyway if physical prizes isn't viable. Free points or XBLA games or whatever.

I'm guessing like with music and movie/tv series downloads it's a licensing issue.

TV channels in different countries owns the rights to thw shows and their subsequent merchandising in their country, and thus they can't just release the games there. and if they where to license they may have to make the host character a virtual version of the host in that country and such.

So give us a cheap knock-off, like 1 vs 99.

Scene It is coming out on the 28th, doesn't this game use avatars? Would be nice to get the update this month. :cool:

Hmm.. thats a good point... would be strange to release the first NON-xbla game that supports avatars before the use of avatars are available.... I think you may be onto something Mr. Gil....

Not *as* excited. I'm still excited, but it does pour cold water on the situation a little.

We're not really getting any of the "New XBOX experience" as good as the Americans get it, which sucks. Sure, the interface change is great, but it's kind of like the difference between a 60GB Launch PS3 and an 80GB current PS3. Sure, the PS3 is awesome, but I don't get the awesome extras like the memory card reader and the backwards compatibility, which puts a bit of a downer on things. There's the avatars, which well, is hardly 360 Home, is it?

The Liscencing issues can hardly be that big considering 1 Vs. 100 has been around in the UK for ages, and why can't they offer the UK equivalent of the Netflix service? Like using LoveFilm?

360 GTA4 Hard drive vs DVD loading speeds

On a somewhat related note, any word on the texture/object pop-up issues in GTA 4 when installing?

Personally I haven't had these issues which I think comes down to my drive being BenQ, though I have heard a ton about it and my friend's 360 ( I sold him my first one ) suffers from it.

I wish spartan_x was still here to give dirty little hints at a release date or some feature that hasn't been shown yet. :p

What ever happened to that guy?
