TheGamingLiberty.com: "Following news of the game delay in the UK, Sony have confirmed that Motorstorm Apocalypse will also be delayed in the Rep. of Ireland in the wake of the Japanese Earthquake"
What has a hurricane in game got to do with a tsunami
Nothing, but Sony is well aware that news agencies are retarded and that should the game come out right after this disaster, those retarded news agencies will make some lame ass story about how Sony (a Japanese company) is insensitive to the disaster in their own country by releasing such a game with visual scenes of destruction. Sony is also aware that we gamers will forgive a delay and continue to purchase their products, and that it is safer to deal with the wrath of the gamers than some lame ass negative press that can hurt the company as a whole. The sad part is those games are already packaged and cased... just waiting to be played. Also: I'm surprised some news agency hasn't brought up the mini game in the Villain's Lair in Playstation Home. In that game you can cause tsunamis and wipe out villages. Seems like the tards in the press would be all over that if they wanted to push Sony under the bus.
This is just good integrity for a sensitive subject that the media will blow out of proportion. I remember when the Twister Ride at Universal was being built. There was a big tornado that destroyed a bunch of towns maybe a week before, so they delayed the ride out of respect to the families. I can repect that. On top of it, it's not like there isn't other games to play.
What a great way to ruin a release....
I wonder how long it will be before the game gets an actual release then?
i think sony were right in doing a delay but i was thinking a week or 2 weeks tops but its sounding like it will be months which will ruin sales in a big way coz people will still be thinking its out friday .
dammit i'll have to try and find Yakuza 4 in this crap hole country
no big deal, really.. We still got Crysis 2 & Shift 2: Unleashed to look forward to.. ^.^
1. Well, the delay is never gonna reach me:) 2. Wait what, Crysis 2?? Not even a racing game god damnit....... 3. Shift 2???.......no.....NO FUCKING WAY! Tomorrow, hell breaks loose!!Gonna play some tsunami levels, oh wait, they are not in the game!(Unless there really is one, but if there were one, why would they put up a video of a hurricane level?!)-_-
SOOOOO PERFECTIC, just give Japan MONEY for help, not make other people have to wait for fictional games......
