I made the decision to release the game on each platform as soon as it's through certification rather than wait any longer in an attempt to achieve an absolutely simultaneous launch.

For a chance to play Retro City Rampage even sooner, head over to your nearest GameStop. The PS Vita version will be playable at GameStops across the United States starting this month, hopefully by the time you're reading this!"

About time this comes out. I thought MS was holding up the release of this game. Does this mean it is out on all platforms next week?

It's an Official PlayStation podcast so there wouldn't be any mention of other platforms. I'd imagine release would be close though.

I don't see what's so bad about the 9th....
Delaying this any further would have been the worst possible day.

They said it's "coming out Oct 9th in North America" so I guess that is all platforms. US PS blogcast so they only mention NA.

A lot of people will be playing Dishonored and XCOM instead, which both come out on the same day.

Well it's two days after Pokemon, for one thing! (aka two days into "month of playing no other games except Pokemon")

Still, day 1 :D

Define 'a lot' because I don't think either of those games will affect this game's sales.

It's releasing on the same day as 2 big games, even if they're considered niche on a mass scale. But then again this is even more niche isn't it.

Yeah, it got delayed into the worst possible month. PSN is ridiculously stacked for October.

$14.99 direct for the PC version on the Retro City website, so I would guess all versions are the same price.

I am excite for this game. I have Dishonored and Xcom both preordered but this shoots to the top of my list.

Yeah, but they can't afford to release it any later.
Too bad it's such a small 'team' because it probably would've gone better if they just told MS to fuck off with their delays.

I don't think it's that bad. PSN is making it pretty damn easy to spend $100 this month.

I really hope this is as good as I think it will be.

I'm ready for something different from indie developers. It's so nice that this game isn't a 'quirky 2d puzzle platformer with a unique art style'

I've always been confused with this game -- hasn't it been out for awhile elsewhere? Is this a remake or something? Is it a Sony exclusive? I feel like I've heard the name since forever.

supposedly, PS3/Vita version is already done for quite some time now and the release is being held back because MS demand same day releases and they haven't passed certification for a long time.

do we know the price? $10 or $15? I've spent $10 so far for the buy $100 get $20 back program
