Should release dates be the same worldwide?

Hey all.

Question for you. Do you think that release dates should be the same for every country worldwide?

For me, someone who lives in the UK and has to basically go dark for 3 days whenever any big game comes out because by the time the game is out in the UK on Friday's, there is already some guy who spoils it for you on a forum.

It's also incredibly annoying to see people on my Steam friends list right now playing Saints Row IV and know that I can't play it until Friday.

What are your thoughts on countries having different days for game and film releases?

Difference in opinion is not an attack, merely an opening to discuss different perspectives and views.
Play a game then judge, don't judge before you play.

I personally don't mind waiting if I have to, but yes, I do wish it was the same worldwide. I have some friends who are very annoyed by it.

No, some countries just need to accept that they're not as important.

I don't see why they shouldn't be the same. The game is completed. Why should one country have to wait over another?
