Hello everyone,

I'm going to ask possibly a simple question, but one that's quite
important to me and the company I work for.

FreeRunner is due for release at the end of Spring, but which Spring
is this? East Asia? US? Europe?

I'm in the UK and greatly looking forward to the FreeRunner, but we're
not even into the worst of Winter yet.
