Different rules regarding how things can be sold in accordance with NAFTA and the European Union (as they both have their own different rules which requires publishers to abide by and sometimes takes longer).

neo7 you do know that every game gets released in EU 2-5 days after USA right? and what rules is different i mean a game is a game ffs...

Registration of copyrights
Getting the paperwork so you can legally sell your stuff
Ensuring who has rights to sell your work
etc
etc

There's a lot of paperwork that needs to be done to sell video games. It's not just as simple as "oh development is done now sell it on shelves".

why not? and cant USA and EU just do it at the same time so every country get it the same time?

It's like you have a Mac machine and a Windows machine doing the same thing. They require different steps. Sometimes those steps require more time to do. That's just how it is. It's not a magic box you can stuff and magically get the same results at the same time with politics. If you find it to be a problem then complain to the European Union that their process is inadequate.

the two different dates are USUALLY meaning that the merchandise in question will be released in two different parts of the world at those dates UNLESS the creators of said merchandise DEMANDS a worldwide release at one date. i *THINK* lucasarts did that to force unleashed? or was it another game/company? i cant remember. but in the end its as neo says down to politics and paperwork.

Incorrect. I'm pretty certain European developers release games in Europe first, and some games such as Assassin's Creed are released on the same day in the US and EU.

Yeah describing the difference between the European Union and NAFTA is a huge chunk of a history class and something I wouldn't be able to cover at all even in a long blog. You'd have to do the research yourself. I do know that the markets in Europe do tend to follow a more precautionary approach than the United States does.

Xenoblade, The World Ends With You and The Last Story are all JRPG's which have surprisingly been released in the EU before America.
This is mind blowing stuff because they're all Nintendo JRPG's as well. And the EU doesn't get a lot of them >_>
