    So apparently the GOTY edition is released in EU September 7th. I write apparently, because it seems no retailer is agreeing with that date. Way back in time, all the way back in April, the GOTY edition was released in the US, and EU players were left with the "sorry, it's coming out September 7th in your region lols"-message.

    Fast forward 4 months, and a mere week away from the release date, but it seems no retailer knows about it. Amazon.co.uk only lists a NTSC import (and they're usually quick about putting up products for pre-ordering), my usual swedish online retailer don't know what I'm asking for, and my two local physical stores have no idea what I'm babbling about.

    So does anyone know what's going on? Google only gives me news stories from April, when the lucky US players got their release. I want this quite badly, or am I stuck with buying the regular version and the DLC seperately?

    EDIT 9/20: Apparently it's delayed until November 2nd in EU. :(

    I don't know, but I'm happy with my Tesco Limited Edition Exclusive Joker Case.

    I've been waiting for news ragarding this too.

    Game.co.uk and play.com has the GOTY edition listed for release on November 2.

    I usually do my game shopping from Play and they have proved very reliable, so maybe this is a new date?

    @Icebuncle: Huh, interesting. Well, November 2nd is better than nothing at all. Just curious why no retailer know anything about it, and why the date was put forward...

    @Cincaid: I have no idea. And the Rocksteady official forums still state that the game will be released on September 7. I also checked some Norwegian game stores online and they don't have the game listed at all. I'm just as confused as you.

    @Icebuncle: Getting more and more confusing, but a September 7th release seems doubtful at this point. I sent tweets to WB Games (and WB Games UK) asking about it, hopfully they can shed some light on it.
