    Just wanted to inform my fellow Swiss Civvers that i just bought CIV IV at EB Games (formerly PC-Joy) in Zurich.

    Here is my "proof":

    Thanks -- interesting to hear that it's reached at least one part of Europe already.

    Maybe Zurich can expect a sudden wave of tourists?

    Well I am envious. I have to wait until November 3rd before Civ4 makes an appearance. Us Aussies always get the "big" games last. Oh well.
    Congrats and happy playing... Post some screenies of your first game.

    The European release date of the 4th seems to be related to European release of ENGLISH-version.

    In general, if you localize a game, you can release it in those language areas easily, as it is not likely to be widely pirated in the rest of the world, or damage the potential sales of the English-version considerably. English still seems to be the only language that suffers from that disease.

    This was the case previously with another favorite of mine, Jagged Alliance 2, which was released in a German version months before any English publisher was even found. This was done by the Sir-Tech developers because they could do the German deal without damaging their potential English sales in any way, thus leaving them in a still-strong position for negotiations with English-language publishers. That release sharpened my German skills considerably, btw. ;)

    And Europe probably didn't get it first, we're just at least 6 hours ahead of you guys over there.

    Yes but the European version is multilingual. Should be even more interesting for pirates IMHO.

    Just tried it out quickly. I installed it in english and it works! It runs even at 1900x1200 resolution of my notebook. Not surprisingly this pushes my Dell Inspiron 8600 to it's limits.

    There's even an animated Sid introducing you to the game. Very slick interface, some real eye candy.

    Well, have to go back to work. Won't be able to really play it until i'm home, so nothing to envy me too much for.

    Greetings,
