    For those who haven't already heard, Lucasarts, after promising that the X-Box and PC release dates for one of the most highly anticipated games of next year would be simultaneous so as to avoid various grievances from PC gamers from the first title that are more or less summed up in THIS THREAD. The gist of it is that even though They knew that X-Box development was running ahead of PC development, to generate hype, they said they'd be released simultaneously. Now, a couple months before the new release date of the US X-Box version, they've announced they're going to screw over PC and International customers, release the US X-Box version two entire months before the PC and International version, which means that any PC and International customers who frequent gaming forums, unless they decide to cut themselves off of the internet for the intermittent two months, are going to know just about the entire plot before they play the game. Not a good thing for a CRPG.

    The only reason I'm bringing this up here, is to ask of our resident US lawyers whether there's some US law similar to the European one brought up by one of the forum posters in the thread I linked to earlier:

    And whether I'd have an actual case should I decide to bring down the wrath of the legal system upon them.

    This sucks,

    JT
