  • Well, if the UK fans think they've got it bad on the video front, spare a though for those in the land down under. Video 6.11 (Live Fast and Prosper/Muse) is due out on the 6th of December, while 6.12 (Fury/Lifeline) should be released on the 13th of January 2001. 6.13 has no confirmed release date but it's presumed it'll be out some time mid February 2001.
