I think Namco are idiots cause it's clearly not delayed.

People have also reported getting the game shipped from Gamefly

It's part of scamco's "run it to the ground" business strategy :D

Announce that the game is delayed indefinitely, put it secretly in stores without a marketing budget, watch it die. Kinda like Sega! :D

Guess it's not delayed, checking online every Gamestop in my area apparently has copies in stock.

I'd like to see some impressions from someone before I go out and buy it though (although I should probably go out and get around to picking up Kid Icarus anyway...)

So clue me in Daddy-O, what's going on with this title?
Was it supposed to ship but was announced that it was cancelled, then it shipped anyway?

If it's really delayed or cancelled it could be the next Stadium Events.

Incorrect. There have been several good installments in the last decade. That said, this new game was developed by a completely different non-Japanese team and is nothing like the rest of the series.

Holy shit, it is Flatout! My eyes usually glaze over when I read the words "ridge" and "racer" together but that statement immediately made me look the game up, and it's developed by Bugbear!

Why the fuck would they call it Ridge Racer? RR fans don't want Flatout and Flatout fans sure as HELL don't want Ridge Racer!

It worked out alright for Criterion and Need for Speed. Then again, EA does tend to market their games every once in awhile.

Seriously, this is one of the weirdest launches ever.

Nice OT, though.

NO U

There's been several awesome Ridge Racer games in the last 10 years. Unbounded doesn't play anything like RR, anyway.

It was really weird, a press release went out, saying the EU version was delayed, but it gave no date for the NA version anymore. Or something.

They stated that the EU version was coming out at the end of March and that the NA version was delayed beyond that date.

People have claimed it's going to be released on the 30th worldwide, but it's just not having any pre-order period. We'll see. Scamco probably doesn't want to look petty for offering pre-orders without the usual 10 percent discount.

I never experienced the Saturn launch. I fell out of gaming during that period. I can't imagine doing something like this with a console.
