Rainbow Six delayed until 2007. (PSP and PS3)

In announcing Rainbow Six: Vegas had shipped for Xbox 360, Ubisoft also revealed that the PS3 and PSP versions of the first-person shoot had been delayed into 2007. Rainbow Six: Vegas won't be available on either system until January 30. Part of the delay may be attributed to the online component of Vegas.

When IGN recently visited Ubisoft's office to get hands-on time with Rainbow Six on 360, we asked if the PS3 version would have the same online functions. We were told that "it should work." Not exactly the most confident of responses for a game original expected to ship on PS3 in November.

With developers receiving information on the PlayStation Network close to launch, third-party games have taken a bit of an online hit. For instance, online multiplayer in Tony Hawk's Project 8 had to be cut. Since the success of Rainbow Six relies on its online support, a delay to ensure the best possible multiplayer experience may not be the worst news.

i dread to think what graw would have been like if it actually would have been a launch title. best thing for them to do.

i was talking about graw for the 360. it was going to be a launch title, but didn't come out until march. if it would have been a launch title, it wouldn't have been as good. ? answered?

is it really that hard to grasp? the extra time ubi used on the game made it quite a bit better than it would have been had it came out at launch. not that difficult. online capability aside, the extra time will still result in it being a better finished product on the ps3. THINK about it. let it soak in. THINK some more. DO YOU UNDERSTAND THE WORDS THAT ARE COMING OUTTA MY MOUTH?

It has to be Dumbed down to work properly. The build was to advanced by the time Sony got their act together now they have to develope in reverse.
