Time Zones and IV's release

So... Is IV due to be released at Midnight on the 29th of April Worldwide?

The reason I ask is, I'm in New Zealand, so if its Midnight on the 29th here in NZ, then its 7am on the 28th (PST) in America.

While thats great for all us Kiwi's and Aussie's, its not so great for the Americans, surely America would get it before us?
Or are my Assumtions right, and we'll get the game first and you'll have to drool over all the tasty info that us Southern Hemisphere riff-raff leak to you lot

And if we are the first to get the game, its going make the day almost unbearable for you Americans, hoping someone gets off the game for long enough to post something up about it


i.e. I went to a Countdown Maker site, Input 29th April 08 with both NZ and PST timezones and the time was.

NZ: 45 days, 10 hours
PST: 46 days, 2 hours

Worldwide release on April 29th 2008. What else can that mean?

I don't think anyone should care about a time difference of less than 24 hours. Most places had to wait at least 3 days after the US for other GTA titles and it's not a big deal.

Aw man, Where your National Pride! We Kiwi's have to cling onto every little bonus that living in NZ gives us... Mainly just the timezone thing, oh, and the lack of terrorist threats

I'm sick to death of us getting games late. Rock Band still isn't out in these parts, it came out months ago in America.

I think it's right that we get this game a couple of hours early.

Honestly, does it matter who gets it first? We're all going to be playing it around the same time anyway.

People at Oceania (Aus/NZ) are supposed to get it before other regions, though you should get the confirmation on date from your local shop.

Well I remember I got GTA SA 2 days before official release. (Only those who preordered)
So let's hope it happens with IV as well. Although that would mean sunday
But the retailer I preordered from is open on sundays though
