    OK, I'm sure this has been asked many many times, but after searching old threads and googling it, I could not find a sensible answer. Why is there such drastic differences in release dates for some games in US/Europe?

    The only thing I could think of was that don't the European versions get multiple language choices within the game?

    Please enlighten me :D

    I think its the language barrier. They need more time to convert games to UK english (if they even convert it) and to other languages. Thats the only reason that I can think of anyway.

    I too have a secret. Most of our words are different from Americans. So the translation is carried out in some games.

    American English and British English are actually different languages.

    Some times they see how the game goes in america or japan or europe and then decide to release to other places.

    disc diffrence's.

    They release diffrent games into diffrent places e.g. america have paper mario but england gets mario strikers online first.

    It's not just release dates. I've been noticing that there's quite a few games heading for the UK which aren't listed at all for the US. Kind of a bummer since they look really cool. However, I haven't seen one "US" game which isn't slated for UK release.
