Things are getting very strange around this title with misinformation and rumours being the order of the day.
Earlier today quite a number of sites released the PS3, PS2 and Wii PAL release dates. According to an official EA Games circular these versions were going to be released on the 29th of August.
Groans rang out through the Internet corridors and the fanboys started up again. However it wasn’t long before EA stepped in and denied this date, stating (the date)
isn’t confirmed, and is on the fact sheet in error
So what is the big secret? How can a game that is already created be taking so long to move over to other platforms. I think it is a unanimous belief now Microsoft has paid for an exclusive period, possibly to scuttle the GTA IV launch?
What is even more worrying for us and our fellow Southern Hemisphere dwellers is the lack of 360 release news. Apparently the May 23rd date is for Europe only and we don’t have a date yet.
The last time I checked the official response was that we don’t have a solid release date or price yet for any of the platforms and that I will be told when this changes.
