Seriously, UK isn't the only place in Europe that plays games.

I like how this thread was made the day Giant Bomb was created, and this issue still hasn't been fixed.

Wow. 
I was about to suggest this, thinking no one had done it before.
 
But yeah, UK isn't the one country in the entire Europe.

For data purposes, we've decided to only track releases in the UK, North America, Australia, and Japan. This isn't a case of us saying UK and meaning all of Europe. We mean UK.

But are there any cases of release dates differing between the UK and mainland Europe? I certainly don't know of any. 
 
Also, this is quite a bump.

If you're targeting UK releases, why isn't ELSPA available as a ratings option for older titles?

There are/were in some cases. It doesn't happen too often, at least not these days. The last example I can recall was Little Big Planet.
