We know that some 360 games have been delayed but Xbox fans have been playing good games for over a year. A Ps3 gamer has more right to be frustrated with PS3 games that are delayed.
This is not " yet another PS3 have a game have been delayed, so you choose to post a game delayed for the 360 as well, thats just silly.
The real point here is, PS3 gamers have been feenin, begging, wishing, folding,BD watching, and waiting for some good tiles to make their purchase seem, at least, a little more justified, purchasing early. While some, that do not have PS3, want these games to come out sooner, so they can make a purchase. Well whatever game that can move PS3 sales is welcomed.
While we want the games to look and play great, part of these delays are probably strategy on parts of the publisher and I know for the PS3 because of its Hardware architect/learning curve, as well as strategy.
I would hope you understand the PS3 fans frustrations, as well as those waiting to purchase the console. Of course your all about REVENGE with your posts, which is really not helping your PS3 com padres, since everybody "LITERALLY" have been "WAITING" Ask any Xbox fan and they will tell you the supply of games haven't been super great but somewhat Steady.
on BOTH consoles i WAIT for good nextgen survival-horrors(sh5, re5, aitd5).
on BOTH consoles i WAIT for good nextgen 3d platforms(ratchet, banjo3).
on BOTH consoles i WAIT for good nextgen slashers(ngs, ng2, dmc4, hs, gow3).
on BOTH consoles i WAIT for good nextgen fightings(sc4, t6).
so i DON`T see the difference when i have to WAIT for genres in which i am interested.
You can have 100 good shooters, 100 3d actions, but if you are interested in specific genres, it DOESN`T MATTER, you will have to WAIT.
If this game gets delayed in the US, i'm going to smash my ps3 into a million pieces.
don't smash it...give it to me...
If your'e just going to smash it...I'll give you $10 for it.
Next gen is now current gen almost 2 years in and still all the waiting. I was gonna get a PS3 but all these delays i just dont want the frustration. What is going on? Sony fkd this up big time.
errrr, do you live in the future? PS3 has only been out for 7 months
the ps3 was delayed a whole year from the get go... so he has a point of it being about 2 years
But if they need some extra time to get this game as great as I think it's going to be go ahead. When it drops it will drop jaws! There are a bunch of games coming before now and then.
delays are fine if their needed, if it makes a better finally product GO AHEAD.
really the only delay that has ever REALLY pissed me off was delaying "Zelda TP" for a year (so they could put it out for the WII)
That was Frustrating.
cant really call this game delayed , it never had a official release date. the delays dont really bother me. since the nes era, games have been getting delayed. the developers stated that they are 90% done with heavenly sword so it will still drop this year, most likely this fall. i understand if japanesse gamers have to wait while its translated( dubbed edition ) because US gamers have always had to wait for japanesse games to be translated.
the only delay that bothers me is gran turismo psp
Make this game come out in the fall like it's supposed too.
Another son of a bichen delay.But NAW say the Sony girls........
Ps3 is going to deliver,"JUST WAIT". Dips!
you really have nothing creative/constructive to say about anything do you?
man, you need something your not getting.
This burns. IS the roof on fire!!!
I think this is only for japan, then again I might be wrong
Sony gave up 2006 by delaying the console, looks like they are giving up 2007 too by delaying games. That's 2 years of nextgen non-gaming for Sony fans, it really must suck hard. I foresee Sony playing catch-up in 2008 and 2009, maybe catching up in 2010, 2011. By which time next-next-gen is due.
I almost wish Sony went back to how they used to run things. I remember when Japan would get things 3 months in advance before the U.S. (they still do) and I would be mad, but at least when the game finally came out here it was good. Nowadays even Japan is getting delays...maybe they should've taken care of Japan first instead of doing everything at once, sheesh
Because it hasn't been delayed in america, or europe. This game has very little importance in the japanese market. Who cares?
Wii - Not Nextgen
PS3 - Not enough games and a lot of delays
X360 - Console has more breakdowns than Britney Spears
Which would you prefer?
But all 3 consoles have many delays. Wii is the most notorious, but only has 3 'big' games coming up (SMG, SSBB, Metroid) and 3 games delayed looks better than having 20% or 30% of your games delayed if you have 10+ upcoming big games like 360 and PS3.
whats wrong with waiting ? we are still going to get these good games before you xbox fans got gears of war :) and halo 3 is released after 2 years of launch so i dont see the problem of waiting a bit longer :).
Because negative people will find anything to spit negativity about. Plain and simple. They act like the delay is worldwide. The MAIN thing that bothers me is, why the hell do they even bother complaining if they have no intentions on buying a ps3 let alone play the damn game in the first place? (bs3, thammer, etc.)
it's being delayed...in JAPAN.
do you know that that most likely means?
that localization is taking longer than expected.
i used to be a localization tester for Square-Enix, and in games like RPGs, or even action adventure games with RPG elements, and lots of voice work and text, localization can take some time.
Heavenly Sword is slated for a September release, right, so chances are, it's just reached the beginning of the localization stage.
i'm sure this delay is a combination of localization, and final bug-testing and polishing.
it happens all the time.
man, you people are like little conclusion jumping monkeys.
or fish that scatter and panic when you tap the glass with your finger.
relax. the game will release when it releases.
and besides, this has been stated as a JAPAN ONLY delay. not the US or UK. calm down everyone.
i don't live in japan. so i don't care.
You guys know what date was a previous release date of HS on Famitsu and SCEJ? It was 2007 Spring. Few weeks ago, finally SCEJ made their strange decision to change the release date from 2007 Spring to 2007. Then, Famitsu folowed on. So, the current release date of HS in Japan is just 2007. Nothing is delayed in my sense.
I'm not sure why gamefront.de posted this.
has nobody heard the saying, 'good things come to those who wait'? i think we have been waiting, and some VERY good things are coming our way.
If it got delayed to June 08 I'd still purchase this game. Delaying it only puts it in further comeptition with games that are coming out but it's looking like it can hold its on. I'd rather they delay it and fix issues than release it and it not be a great game.
