EB Games Australia Break Rugby Challenge 2 Street Date

EB Games Australia Break Rugby Challenge 2 Street Date

We received word this morning that EB Games Australia have released Rugby Challenge 2 early, breaking the June 13th street date.

As confirmed on the Sidhe forums, the game is available to purchase both in store and online on the EB Games website.

A spokesperson for EB Games New Zealand has confirmed with NZGamer.com that they will be sticking to the June 13th release date, and have no plans to sell the game earlier.

The New Zealand distributor for the game has also confirmed that they are still planning to release the game next Thursday.

Is there any legal ramification for EB AU doing this? Surely a street date is in the terms and conditions of sale and could be punished if breached?

The French and AU have broken the "WORLDWIDE" release date of June 13th. Check Tagmae's (French distributor) facebook page of all retail stores selling the game right now. The UK are about to follow suit and consumers in South Africa have sent messages to their local distributor who are waiting on word from head office before they start selling it also.

Why is it New Zealand (where the game is made) will be the last in the world to release the game? Like... really? Are you serious?

Will be interesting to see if Sidhe gets some payout from EB for the breach.
Good news for them.

Generally they receive a fine of some sort or lose their rebates. Some suppliers if they get really annoyed delay releases. Doesnt happen to often, but those are the general threats:p
