    Cuba, Myanmar, Kosovo, Palestine, Iran, Sudan, North Korea, Syria... Anyone I have missed?
    P. S. Now I understand the lack of Persia: there's no fan base there.

    Do I understand it correctly that USA gets it several hours AFTER Europe?

    LOL checking each time zone now I am totally confused when it actually will be released :D

    Apart from Europe, which seems to be 01:00 am on Friday.

    It depends on where you are.
    Europe gets it at 1 in the morning, which is later than the eastcoast (they get it at midnight), but earlier than the westcoast, which gets it at 3 in the morning (there's three hours between east and west, I think?).

    In absolute terms, yes, but relatively it depends, eastcoasters get it earlier than Europe.

    I always wonder if the time zones were round the other way i.e. America is the first would there be a lot more games with global releases with the first zone and not the last.

    Local time yes, but relatively no: all of Europe will get it earlier.

    It depends on how you look at it ;)
    1 in the morning (for me) is later than midnight for somebody on the eastcoast.
    Yes in absolute terms it feels earlier, as it's earlier in the US, but we've been up longer too ;)

    It's a lot fairer than, say, a worldwide release (where it can even be the next day in Australia, for instance)

    No, that is for zone 1, which is east asia and oceania. Seattle is basically on there for comparison.

    PST (well, PDT) is part of zone 3, which is midnight on the 20th, or 9pm pacific time.
