It’s not just the gaming industry that are still practising old out-dated behaviours. Nope the movie industry alas still resorts to splitting release dates unevenly.

As a video rental store manager back in the early ’90s, delayed or staggered release dates had fewer people talking about as a topic. This was before the social networks that are so commonplace today. It’s incredulous that in an age of digital transfer and in a period of almost zero growth, the movie and videogame industries still like to use archaic formula when it comes to shipping and making available new movie or videogame titles in UK but also the US.

If anyone knows of any benefit derived from e.g Dishonored being released in the US on the 9th October and the UK having to wait until the 12th please leave a comment below.
