That's the problem! Almost every game is less than 4.5 gb, so fits onto a single-layer disc. CoN is greater than this so would need a dual-layer disc. The game was developed on two single-layer discs, then when printed was reduced to a single dual-layer disc.

Turns out dual-layer is harder to read or something, and lots of errors appeared that weren't in the development version. Hopefully they're fixing these errors for the euro release, perhaps by returning to two single-layer discs. If they don't after all this delay they'll be totally discrediting themselves as serious developers and I for one will boycott future products.

According to Edge's review they already have and that was around late March.

I would hope that other serious problems mentioned by NTSC version players would get sorted as well like useless armour and overpowered critical hit.

Was that definitely of the UK version, because the first reviews of CoN were of two-disc prototype prints, not single-disc release versions.

And yeah, with all this delay they need to show something for it. There ought to be none of the show-stopping bugs and glitches, the fire effect musn't cripple animation to a crawl, and online should provide all the features feedback have asked for.

Actually, it may be that the European release actually ties in with CoN2 development, as refinements and bug fixes would be carried onto the next release. After CoN's release in the US and feedback, they can try take-two in the EU and see how that works, then release three (CoN2) should be a fully refined game incorporating changes identified from the EU release.

According to them it was the Pal version. Someone put up a quote from that review as well which revealed this and that it was 2 discs.

If the PAL release is already finished, ,aybe the current delays are refinements of the online servicing? Was there any mention of whether bugs had been fixed?

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!

There's no excuse for a 6 month gap between the US and UK release dates. Are you sure, I asked last week in GAME and they still had 21st May?

i am betting it will be the Friday 25th (shown on most sites) as virtually all releases are Fridays.
hopefully you will only have to wait a few days
