For the most part, PAL gamers have traditionally been denied first dibs on a large proportion of major video game releases. Although the delay between NTSC and PAL launches isn’t quite as protracted as it once was, Europe has often been the last of the major markets to get certain games on the shelves. So today it is with no small pleasure and smugness that we can announce that PAL territories are going to enjoy some superior service in the coming months.

Colin McRae Rally 2005, due out on PC, PS2 and Xbox in the UK at the end of September, will be released in the US at the same time. However (here’s the rub), America won’t be getting a PS2 version of the next Colin McRae Rally game, at all. It has, apparently, become some sort of US-only Xbox exclusive. Even the PC version won’t actually be available in the shops, and will have to be purchased through Codemasters’ online store.

As a second winding punch to American PS2 gamers, SCEE London has announced that the US release of The Getaway: Black Monday is going to be delayed. Whilst UK gamers will be thrashing round the digitally recreated streets of London screaming clichéd mockney dialect at the TV as the cold November nights close in, Americans won’t. Instead, they’ll have to wait until January 2005. It’s not a huge gap, admittedly, but it could provide enough time for Europeans to complete the game and go posting plot-spoilers all over US gaming forums. Ha!
