Didn't realize it was even supposed to come out this year.

VampiricDragon2195d ago

anyone remember the days of series that got more than 1 release every 3 years?

NarooN2195d ago

What are you talking about? Shattered Memories came out last year...

Besides, I'd rather wait 2 or 3 years than just get the same game regurgitated every year *cough*COD*cough*.

Croash2195d ago

Shattered Memories actually came out in 2009 in NA and Japan.

But you're right, I'd rather have developers taking all the time they need to polish their games instead of getting a yearly fix that will not satisfy me as much.

However, back in the 90's and early 2000's, a lot of amazing series had their iterations developed in only a year.

The end product didn't suffer at all, but I guess it all depends on the developers' talents and of the size of the game.

On topic: Downpour E3 2011's trailer ended with a "Coming Winter" while TGS's trailer had an unfortunate "Coming Soon". Unfortunate for those who wanted it his year...But I think Vatra Games must make sure that Downpour lives up to the fans' expectations.
The delay isn't a rumor...However, the reason for it isn't clear, so I'll go with "Polish and glitch fixing".

NarooN2194d ago

The delay isn't really confirmed. The game was already rated by the ERSB, which pretty much means there's no way they'll delay it or anything like that. One of the devs in an interview recently said they're putting the finishing touches on it right now. Don't think a date was ever revealed until that trailer for JP anyway, so yeah.

Kurisu2195d ago

Wouldn't surprise me, it would give a chance for the HD Collection to sell.

NarooN2195d ago

That got delayed to 2012, so that's not the reason at all.

Raider692195d ago

I guess they need more time to polish the game after some late reaction on the preview build.Better that than sorry latter.

P_Bomb2195d ago

Yeah, IGN tore the PAX demo (or some recent playable version anyways) to pieces recently. I'm sure they weren't the only ones. Sounded like it had some pretty universal issues, and SH hasn't had a great track record lately, bad buzz around the HD Collection notwithstanding.

"SH hasn't had a great track record lately, bad buzz around the HD Collection notwithstanding."
And the ultimate suckage called Silent Hill: Book of Memories.
