One frustrated fan in New Zealand has had enough of the delays that come with major Nintendo releases in Nintendo Australia's
domain, and he is doing his best to take some action. Aaron Rex Davies put together a report comparing release dates of Nintendo's first and third party Wii titles in that region, and the difference is clear -- first party titles suffer from a considerably longer delay in release. In his introductory page, he also mentions the upcoming Halo 3
, which is slated for a release in all major markets at the same time.
We've heard a lot of complaints over time from annoyed gamers in non-US regions, and looking at the facts on the page, we certainly can't blame them. Of course, there are slang and translation-related issues
to face when taking a game from one region to another, and we know Nintendo sets out to make quality their benchmark, but does it really take that long? Let's hope Nintendo takes notice of this outcry and we see some favorable action for gamers outside the US and Japan.
