I can understand the game being delayed in Japan due to the events there but you have to admit it's strange that the UK version is being delayed while America gets the game on time.

US doesnt get it until April anyways

That's only an extra month, are you telling me that one month will make any kind of difference in Japans situation?

Have to say I was looking forward to this game, And the fact that it got held off for a tornado based level with a badly timed name has left me wondering if I will get it let alone when I may be able to.

What I dont get it, why not patch out the waves of mutilation name and release it?

Where are the disc printed.It might be they can't print anymore at this time.Conserving power is a top priority in Japan right now.

Speaking of that. Did anyone else have a problem with their gamestop demo code for this game?


There is very mixed views over this.....

you have the crowd who want the game ASAP

And the people who think its a sensitive issue.

persnally Japan is a real tragedy but I dont see how people in the UK would be overly sensitive about it.

Actually they wont even battle for the same audience because other one is fully arcade and shift 2 is semiarcade...(I've played it so i goddamn know)

Apocalypse was delayed believe or not because of the events in japan..

...simulation or semi-simulation as long as its good we will play it but I will be getting Shift 2 Unleashed on PC because of Mods and Better Graphics while Motorstorm Apocalypse on PS3 obviously.

Already some copies available on eBay, also I'd imagine some stores like Tesco, Argos and Morrisons will be selling it Friday.
