Lately, reading about broken street dates is normal. It doesn’t even constitute as news anymore because it is always bound to happen somewhere. Most developers hate it when the game is released early but not Harmonix.
Harmonix smiles when you manage to get a a copy of their newest instalment before release date. They even congratulate you. If you turn your attention to the image and look under the menu options, you will see what I’m talking about.
"Welcome to Rock Band 2! Nice work on scoring the game before it comes out!"
It’s nice to see a developer taking a light hearted view on broken release dates but I hope it doesn’t become a trend, there’s nothing worse than pre-ordering a game and then everybody getting it before you.
