    Soooo after having a game I preordered 5 months ago pushed back yet again, and only in Canada I might add, I'm starting to get extremely fidgety. After reading on Kotaku that the game was being held back AGAIN from it's December 19th launch date to infinity, I decided to check out Future Shop's website and they are now listing December 28th! Here's the link to see for yourselves: http://www.futureshop.ca/catalog/proddetai...824&catid=23360.

    Any other Canadians out there losing their minds over waiting for this game? I can't take it anymore. I'm soon going to run across the border and risk my life to get the game rather then wait any longer [​IMG]

    You never knew of the delay? It was to be released in Canada and the US at the same time but the Canadian version was pushed back. The big excuse seems to be that they are translating part of the instruction manual to French. My theory is that because of the projected shortage of the game before release, they redirected all of the existing bundles to the US.

    delays suck... but i'm kinda happy we haven't recieved it yet... have you read the stories about all the broken guitars and drum pad sensitivity issues? the time it's taking them to replace the broken ones is probably reason behind these newest delays... the original delay was because the instruction manual, there was something wrong with the french translation of it (damn bi-lingual country of ours).

    this kinda teaches harmonix for ditching red octane (red octane was the hardware design team, while harmonix did the software for GH1/2).

    No, I knew about the first delay (to a day before my birthday) so I wasn't too mad (good gift idea) but now this is just crazy! After Christmas! No!

    This is all quite rediculous in my opinion regardless of hardware failure or not. I would prefer to actually have the game I've payed for rather then wait and wait and wait and deal with constant delays. I'm tempted to try and get my preorder monies back but EB Games is an evil company who will do no such thing.

    @Science: Yeah I was hoping to have it for Christmas at least but now I will have to wait until after as well...

    I hope that statement was a joke. If not, there is no place for that here. Completely offtopic and ignorant. We're here to discuss the constant delays of Rock Band in Canada. We're not here to discuss why you feel that the US hates Canadians. Don't be an idiot.

    @Foxstar: Yeah that is a pretty brutal wait for you guys but as Science stated we're not used to delays like this unless the delay occurs in the US as well. I've never seen a delay of a game in one area and not the other.

    If you noticed above, I did ask whether or not it was a joke. Sorry if I took offense but you didn't really give an indication as to whether or not you were joking. Sorry if I've offended you somehow.

    Same here. I'll be sure to include a /joke tag henceforth.

    Sorry, I really am, I couldn't resist.

    On Topic: How much extra would it cost to get it imported from the US?

    LOL true that...it's funny I've never really thought of it before but I do believe that bagged milk is somewhat of a commodity [​IMG]

    Well you can get it on eBay but it will definetely cost an arm and a leg.

    Well, you had to buy a special jug like shell which fit around the bag of milk. Then you cut off the corner of the bag and poured the milk.

    YAY!
