I was just over there and read this:

"Unreal Tournament 2003 defined ship date Saturday, August 31, 2002
Posted by Newsfactory on Saturday, August 31 @ 22:42:08 CEST
Unreality.dk reports that Lee Perry of Epic went on the Polycount forum with this little gem:
We have a very defined ship date now... that is not my business to talk about But it's (good for you guys, bad for me) not too far away at all.
Hey that's today! could they be right? where's the Demo then"

Seems to me they are just saying that they confirmed today that ut will be shipping soon.

In Hong Kong, as of Sunday 1 st September, you can get the UT 2003 pirated Cds. The cd covers look pretty convincing, as in the cover looks like the one posted on the net by a on line games seller. (a link from the official ut2003 site). However when I went to the shops selling original legit games, they said they didn't have it and didn't know when UT2003 would be on their shelves.

yea it sounds like they're selling the 'fake' rtm release that a group of hackers put out a few weeks back.

As much as I want to, I'm finding it really hard to believe that the final vers of the game has already shipped when we've seen no demo? It just doesn't make much since, especially w/ all the talking Mark did about definitely releasing a demo for the unreal community to evauate the new features and find bugs.

I honestly don't think we're going to be seeing this game until November/December, especially since an official demo hasn't been released.

If they really intend to get the game shipped in time for the Christmas buying season, they need to get the demo out ASAP, and then they're gonna have to rush the tweaks in response to user input (from the demo) like mad, so that they can get the final game out quickly.

I somehow get the feeling that there have been closed demos released for testing, and that we're likely to see the final game on the shelf at the same time as we get the demo (regardless of what has been said before). I mean, look at all the 'two more weeks' comments. That tells me how trustworthy their estimates of what's going to happen and what needs to happen are..

P.S.- I don't really care if they solicite my input from the demo. I'll be buying the game the minute it hits the shelves, simply based on the leaked 927 and the fact that I know the final can't be worse. :D

Game (UK) show it as released on 27/9/02: http://www.game.uk.com/review.asp?tab=pc&rev_id=145328
I don't think there's much chance of it being released over here before america so I don't think anyone knows the release date

there is no way it shipped yet. Stores are now reporting an October 3 release date, so I doubt it shipped now for a release date an entire month later. It takes 2 weeks or less to ship and release a game.

Of course who knows if October 3 is even a reliable, considering these !#@#!$'s have already pushed back the game for months!!! :rolleyes: :mad: :( :rolleyes: :mad: :(

With ya' 100% on that Gator. I sure wish it'd come out (at least the demo, although I really want the final game!).

That version in HK is fake, or rather beta or pre-retail version. Friend Of got hold of it out of cuiousity, since he is an UNREAL Tourney zealot. He and I tried it on his amd 1900+, 256 Cas2 PC2700 MB DDR Ram, Innovision GF4 TI4200 and asus a7v333 mobo. With optimised aniso and quincunx,...this game is a frame rate killer, frame rates from 80-15, aveerage with fraps at around 30 fps only! It is also rather buggy in that the game crashes! I hope the retail release version is better for frame rates and more stable! But visually its stunning, I hope they make more improvements and all this testing was on a 17" Samsung LCD!

BTW, that build is the leaked non-optimized build that's been circulating for a few months now.

last i heard, Mark said the demo would be released before the actual game, and then gameplay changes would be made at the last minute based on feedback from the demo.
