1. Shipping times vary.

2. I've only seen rough estimates of the release up until that
"November 2005" that you mentioned (which has been repeated on this NG).

Wassup with the different dates?

lol....gamespot has changed it to January 2006!

Meanwhile, my EB stores don't have a listing...what a surprise!

I seem to recall hearing that the Xbox360 Version is due early next year (so
March), but the others will be in Nov. Makes sense to me. Nov is good Xmas
time shopping, and the March will be good for the 360 as it won't get lost
in launch titles etc.
But I guess we're not going to know until it happens....again.

Ok, unfortunetely story details are few and far between. So far all we have
is that the story will return to Lara's background which was described in
the manual to the first game (lost in the jungle, had to escape yadda
yaddda), so the story is meant to be all emotional and important in that
respect.
Otherwise, there's no mention whatsoever of the AoD storyline. Some of us in
this ng would like some mention to be made, for it to be wrapped up (for me,
even if only in the opening cutscene or a flashback later in the game,
anything!!). Others don't seem to really care/ mind.
CD haven't released any information, other than damning CORE and AoD. It's
very nice for them to point to finger and bitch and moan, but what are they
actually going to do about it? I'm starting to get the impression that CD
are acting quite immature about the whole thing.

But at the end of the day, it's as you say VC, time will tell.

I've found UK release dates (PC and PS2 formats) of 18th and 25th
November 2005

http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/search-handle-form/...
http://play.com/play247.asp?pa=search&searchtype=PS2&se...

Hopefully we won't see a repeat of the slipping release dates that
plagued the unfinished Angel Of Darkness.

If the release dates (and demos) are good, then it's going on my Xmas
list :-)

Release dates given by retailers are almost always too early. Expect to see
it in about a years time.

In Holland we have a saying :
"what is good comes fast".

Anyway game industry is often vindicating the mirrored saying .

Your local videogame shop's proclamations on this matter do not constitute
an *official* release date ;-)

I highly doubt it will be year! If it's a year - why bother with making such
a hoo-haa at E3 this year?
How much more do Eidos wanna dig their own grave?!?!

Nah...I'd be unbelievably surprised at their stupidity if it wasn't released
before Christmas.

For other, obvious reasons.
I trust that we won't get the bungling that marred AoD this time around.
At E3 they announced it would be ready towards the end of 2005 (they may
even have actually said November - I can't remember). Eidos would be stupid
to commit the same mistakes as last time: I imagine they will be extremely
careful about what they say about TRL and its stage of development, lest
they commit themselves to promises they can't keep and have to deal with the
fallout as they did with AoD.

UPDATE:

Latest word from LCO is that Eidos learned from the "early release"
mistake and they're pushing the release back to early 2006 to "perfect
the product". At this point, I don't mind the delay if it gets me
something better than the idiocy they pulled on AoD.

Now that gets a heartfelt Amen! With Legend, I think we'll all enjoy
having everything the game promised. They've promised us quite a lot
