Sounds as though they're trying to compete with EA/Dice and Battlefield:Vietnam. Didn't they just announce BFV would be available one day earlier as well (15th)?

Doesn't make a difference to me though. I've already pre-ordered both. Just means I get to play both earlier. ;)

Hehe, I'm happy they're competing, that means I can get two decently looking games a bit earlier. During LAN plan, UT2K4 was awesome, so I look forward to that. ;) Jeez, could I have anymore 1942 games? ;)

I guarantee that headset will fall apart in less than a year

yea onslaught is pretty wildly awesome. except when u fire a sniper rifle while driving through a canyon, dont you expect the "smoke" released through the barrel to not stay in fron of your face for too long... yea know, cus the motion and all... ;)

The headset is made by Logitech, and all of their other products that I've used have worked beautifully and been very durable. I have a Logitech optical mouse that i have viciously beaten for years, and it still works perfectly. I see no reason to think that headset will be any different :)

And hooray for shipping a day early. All too rare in this age of constant delays :D

I got to have this game.

I've always found Head sets useful but when ever I have a chance to use them, I completly forget I have them on my head. I'll tell everyone where the enemy is by typing and then after I send the message, I relize I have a head set on. Does everybody have to get us to them after a while?

I probably won't be using the headset for anything, it seems akward to me, and I'm on 56k still and I'm sure that it uses up what little bandwidth I already have.

i tend to yell out stuff but forget to hit the key to start the voice chat.

It's good that UT2004 is coming on DVD :)

But I've got to play the demo before I decide if I really want it though. Might just use the money for something else. ;)

Who says that you need a headset to yell stuff? You should see me yell after I'm tagged. :p

Dang... My DVD ROM just kicked the bucket too. :( Is UT04 going to be available on CD as well? I'm assuming it is...

Uh, whoa. UT 2004 DVD comes with a SDK?

What other extras? :p As I explained to an Epox techie today, I live in a hole and don't get news until 2 weeks after it's mad public most of the time. ;)

I was surprised that UT2k4 had intergrated Voice chat. That is great. I used to play lots of TDM and CTF on ladders.

HanD_Of_DetH was my handle :)

When calling out enemy position or spawn times. Headset is key.

I wonder if they built in a radom time for spawn of items. Like shield belt was 55 seconds on the nose ;) They should learn from Quake III but I don't think so from the demo.

Just pre-ordered UT 2k4 this eve at EB.

No $20 gift card at the store, but I ordered the special edition version(DVD) and they had the price listed as $40 for it.

The gamespy article and all other literature I have seen implies retail at $60 for the DVD version.

Any feedback, was the EB games guy wrong?

$60 is the suggested retail price. I promise you that some store will use it as a loss leader to get you into the store. Best Buy and Fry's are usually pretty good about it.

Well, it looks like EBGames took the DVD Special Edition (supposedly 2 DVD's one with the game, and one with an instructional video in addition to the headset) off the list of available games. I preordered it a couple weeks ago.

Anyone else think that they sold off all their copies before it even hits the shelves? I still see it as available at Amazon in case anyone is still looking to buy it.

Also: Don't bet on your local mom and pop shop having the DVD special edition version on the shelf, it will probably be sold out long before then.
