The Walking Dead Ep 4 RELEASE DATES ARE OUT! PSN NA October 9th, PC/Mac/Xbox 10th!

Because if I don't make this thread, someone else will. As of now, no prize, because I'm still finishing The Ripper's comic cover.

If-and only if- I finish it by the end of the first week of September, I'll offer what I did last time, one randomly chosen person from those who guess the correct date (I'll make multiple winners if console and PC are not released on the same day) will get a TWD cover of themselves (or a friend/family member)

iOS releases are on a different schedule, so that doesn't count as a win. Just Mac/PC-Xbox-PS3 guesses.

Happy guessing!

-Sorry I remade the thread, poll wasn't working properly.

  • I bet all my internet points that steam will screw up again and it will be PS3/Xbox360 day one, day 2 PC (Origin and Telltale), Day three Steam.

  • Not trying to put a damper on anyones joy, but if we follow suit what happened before Episode 4 will be released within the next week or two, and then it will take SCEE another month to clear it for PSN EU.

    I can only hope that TTG has spent the time between Ep 3 and 4 to also work on ep 5.

    Except this hasn't been happening.

    In fact, I'd be willing to bet PS3 or X-Box get the same release date as PC. Also didn't PC get the Walking Dead first anyways for episode one? X-Box first for episode 2 and PS3 first for episode 3.

    Uh...were you here for episode three? That is exactly what happened. Steam screwed up and we didn't get it until quite a few hours over telltale and origin uploaded.

    The Steam release was first for episode 1, and always the second day of release for episode 2 and 3, so Steam is at the forefront of early releases for this game. Compared to the Telltale store PC/Mac release, the first episode was very very early (as the TTG server seemed to have upload problems), Steam/Telltale release coincided with episode 2 and Steam was a bit later with episode 3.

    PSN EU was always and will always be later than the PSN NA release, but has never been "a month", more like 3 to 6 business days for the TWD release. However, this IS a big unknown as SCEE seems to explicitly not know how long their evaluation process actually takes.

    Would you please do some research before you just throw made up stuff out there?

    But isn't that the easier and more fun option?? Hehehe :D

  • actually for episode 3 steam was one day late in the uk, as i was up till about 2 am waiting for it to drop while doing other stuff, then gave up went to bed and after about 5 hours sleep got up and played ep3, so technically for me it was the 30th by the time i got it.

    Chill out Vainamoinen, I was merely exagerating a little to make a point, that even if TWD is released early October it will most probably mean that EU will get the game middle to late October, thanks to SCEE procedures. My bad for not using a emoticon to make it clear.

    BTW Episode 3 was released for EU 11 days after North America, which is a lot more than 3-6 days as you claimed. But I admit that it is a lot shorter than a month.

    Yeah. No. We're still counting PST and only PST here. And believe me, I feel your co-European pain also. ;)

    No problem, I am actually totally chilled. ;) It's just when other users pick up the exaggeration as fact that I know I reacted too slowly or did not state things vehemently enough. :D

    PSN NA release was August 28th; PSN EU release was September 7th. That is eight business days, not eleven; I was a bit off too though.

    Oh Vainamoinen, you get told to chill on these forums about as much as I get told to chill at work, lol.
