Not as early as I'd wanted, nor as late as I'd feared.
Splitting the US and EU releases of the PS4 sounds good too.

Now to wish the next two and a half months of my life away :D

These embargo countdowns are going to give me a heart attack, some day. We've known for about three hours.

That is actually the day after I have an exam, so that's good timing as I won't be distracted from revision and can reward myself/drown my sorrows afterwards :D

It probably depends if your heart is under embargo whether you'll know about it though. :P

That conjures up a weird image of a post heart attack Edwin wandering around as if everything was fine because his brain isn't allowed to know he's dead...wonder if that's were zombies come from?

Hmm, a heart attack embargo. I'll run that one past my doctor friend, next time he flies back from Australia.

And to think I was frantically refreshing Xbox News Wire rather than OXM!

BTW is it a midnight 21st launch?

Due to the virtually simultaneous release, what's particularly interesting about this generation's launch in particular is that it is a lot like a general election - both sides are suddenly coming up with sales and offers and promises in order to gain people's 'vote' (by which I mean 'purchase'). Once they are 'elected' ('bought') and we are locked into their system, they can start tightening the vices on our wallets.
