View Full Version : CFS3 in the UK
11-09-2002, 10:50 AM
Microsoft for the second week running have delayed CFS3! WE were meant to get it end of October, then 8th Nov and now 15th Nov, WHAT IS WRONG WITH MICROSOFT!!!! I don't mind waiting a week or so but to wait 2 weeks after 'launch' date without any explanation is unacceptable.
Does anybody else share the same view in the UK, or the rest of the world?
If Microsoft had taken the CFS3 back with an explanation like "We are fixing a major bug" then i would not have minded, but typical Microsoft they don't tell you anything.
Anyway enough of me rabbling on, i'm wondering if anybody else has had the same problems?

Thats good...it means you still have a chance to not buy it. You better try it out somehow before you buy it. I have CFS1 and 2, FS98-2002 professional and I bought CFS3 and am VERY dissapointed. Im taking it back today to exchange it for something else.

Read the forums (avsim.com, netwings,com etc) - CFS3 is not giving a good account of itself - and many are returning it - check the threads and the screenshots and you will see what I mean! ;-)
Also make sure you have a 'return' policy if you buy it! :)
(MS may have met their 'Waterloo' in CFS3)

IF, I SAY IF they are scrambling with a patch to fix the MESS they have with the current design - consider yourselves very lucky. In one perspective they may be doing just that. M$ probably doesn't want to needlessly add the outrage and ire of the UK to what they're dealing with in the states.

In Dublin, which is I know fairly backward (just look whos the prime minister) the release date has always been the 15th of November, as when I asked in GAME (EB) about a month ago. BTW, how much will it cost in stores, or, if I buy it online, is there a return policy?
Insert droll or witty comment here.

This link may save you all some heartache!

Find it at www.play.com for £28.99 (GBP) including delivery anywhere within Europe.
John, like you mentioned with Game (EB), play.com have also been stating 15th of November as the release date.
For me it is particularly pleasant as it coincides with my birthday (yes yes I acknowledge that I am unlikely to take delivery that very day).

yep, play and amazon have said it'd be the 15th for quite some time. probably a month or so.
