Peggle 2 delayed until December

Delayed

Man, these launch titles have been dropping like flies! Now it’s Xbox One that’s losing a day one launch title in the form of physics puzzler, Peggle 2.

PopCap, the developers of Peggle 2, explained:

“Peggle 2 is a ‘launch timeframe’ title. But [it] will not launch day-and-date with the Xbox One — instead, it will become available a few weeks later in December.”

Peggle looked awesome when Geoff got to play with it at Gamescom – it looked like a fun, addictive launch title for the Xbox One. Now, Xbox One early adopters will have to wait a few weeks to shoot balls at pegs. I wonder how this will affect its rollout on other platforms; Peggle 2 is a timed exclusive for Xbox One – will this change that timing at all?

Seriously people, was no one prepared for these launch day dates? I’m beginning to wonder whether these dates were in the pipeline from the beginning, or if Sony and Microsoft jumped the gun. But let’s be honest, people who buy consoles on day one aren’t in it for the awesome launch games – they just have to be first to get the awesome new gadget.

      Sony and Ms both jumped the Gun this year with launch titles.. Hell nothing screams out buy me… except perhaps Dead Rising 3… But The question is do I want a less powerful console that is twice the price…

        Totally true man… and it doesn’t help that the developers can’t keep the release dates.

        I’m staying away from the new gen consoles for a while, will decide on one at a later stage, and then wait a while longer before getting one.

          Only if you upgrade it often enough to keep up with the current games… which ends up costing more than either the Xbone or PS4 in their life cycle.

            Ah young Squirrel but you are mistaken. Current PC gaming hardware already far exceeds next-gen console specs and the whole PC upgrade cycle has slowed down dramatically thanks to 8yr console lifespans.

            Ah Skyblue, I’ve been building and playing on PC’s since before the Pentium era began, and I know that there will always be a dev that pushes the envelope (like CDPR), which causes your PC to die when trying to play game. It’s run of those things.
