Im hopeing that with Arma getting noticed some more publishers will be inteligent enough not to let a pearl slip...
So does this mean that anyone in the world will get to download Armed Assault November 10th? (english version?)
No, but it might. It's more likely that it will be around the german release date.

Well the big problem as everyone knows, at least here in America, is that Operation Flashpoint really did not sell all that well. It was a much more popular game in Europe. So its probly a hard sell to a publisher with Armed Assult being Flashpoint on steroids.

If it happened to be published in North America... I would bet money it will not sell too well. Becuase the NA gameing community is full of gamers who are in love with run and gun games like Counter Strike, Call of Duty, and BF2. They tend to shy away from realistic FPS's that actually make you think. Thats why games like OFP and SWAT sell poorly here... not to say it wouldn't sell at all, but it would like be far from a top seller.
But hey, at least with online distribution the game will be available, even if there isn't a publisher for every region.
Thats CRAP news ***
This is virtual suicide for Armed Assault, extremely inconvienient. Not everyone has Broadband and i'm certainly not buying 6 copies of it via steam just to play Lan.
A really stupid move by Bohemia Interactive.
Yeah, just look at red orchestra, now there's a devastating failure.

But seriously, it will be available in boxes for you plastic/cardboard fetishists.
How the hell could it possibly be a negative? They never said it would be their sole solution for release in those other regions... If anything, I percieve it as a temporary (an effective) solution to what could be even worse had they not done it. To each their own, I guess...
