    Man, this really starts to piss me off, according to this site (german) Grid DS will have to wait another 2 months to come out.

    Orginally dated for tomorrow release it seems it was pushed back to the 28 th August...

    Maybe they want to do a summer release to sell more ?

    Anyway, that simply sucks [​IMG]

    The german site states a french site as their source.

    I don't believe it 'till Codemasters announces it.

    Why? Didn't Nintendo Power review the final build?

    I'd rather wait if it meant getting a better gaming experience...

    There's too much shovelware to release first.

    I emailed Codemasters and they say its only true for some Euro countries and that it will be released in the UK on the 25th June.

    Of course I'd still be cuatious as many publishers lie so you will pre-order games so that retailers will increase their order.

    I'm hoping the 'some countries on the 25th' is true. I'm really looking forward to this after my time with race driver. I liked race driver's style, but so much more could have been done. Even though it'd attract more online players, I really do hope the 'brutality' of the control scheme was left intact. As for improvements over the first one, I didn't care much for how some users abused certain pieces in the track creator and I really disliked the cpu driver "ai."

    Well now I got a second one saying that it is delayed as August is a less busy month and that Grid will have a better chance at retail then before then.

    If it appears next week then we know, if not...August.

    IMPOSSIBLE! Never heard of a game being released in England on a Wednesday. Game releases are always on a Friday. Take SSBB as an example, releasing on Friday, 27th of June
