Hi, I was wondering WHY is the release date of above mentioned game keep getting postponed. It was supposed to be released in September, then it was delayed until the mid of November, end of November and to December 2, 2005. But today it says Q1 2006!!! The thing is, I will most likely forget about the game by the time it is actually released. I am hoping that somedy around here has some more info. So, please tell me. Before I plant a bomb under the publisher :)

Something has seriously gone wrong somewhere.

GAME and most shops were expecting it 25th November. Mags like PCZone were bigging it up almost as a national holiday, harassing readers to own at least one copy. PCGamer had actual adverts from the publisher (THQ? Can't remember) proudly stating "Out November". Well, that month's gone. And still no PAL Psychonauts.

I wonder how much money they wasted on that advert?

What do they think they're playing at? It's apparently been ready since August (http://www.doublefine.com/news2005summer.htm#24August2005).
You'd think they'd at least try and get it out in time for Christmas. This year's Christmas.
But now Gameplay's current estimate is February 24th.

If I had a decent graphics card in my PC, I'd order it direct from DoubleFine. But I have to wait for the PAL PS2 version.

well, I'm waiting for the PC version. I guess I could order from the US, but it's not just the shipping prices that bother me, it's also the fact, that the european version comes on one DVD, instead of 5 CDs. I prefer the first one :)

We Europeans generally get the bad end of the stick when it comes to game release dates. I'm still waiting for Shadow of the Colossus to turn up!

For those waiting for a European PC release for Psychonauts I recommend picking the US version up from eBay. I did!

I wasn't really a fan of the demo, but I'm at the end of the game now and I LOVE it! Amazing stuff, shame the first couple of levels aren't very inspiring.

Me too. I got the PC version from Gamestop US a couple of days after it was released, for only around 25 with shipping. I even have kinda two copies of the game since the first one they sent me had two CD 2s and no CD 4, so they sent a replacement free :).

If I were importing I'd be tempted to get the signed version from DF. But I get the European version for free when it does come out, and I'm poor. And it's on a DVD.

well, amazon.co.uk says it's set to be released on February 10, so, just maybe it will actually be released.

I could have ordered the game from US, but we're getting a DVD version and I prefer it over 5 CDs

I may buy it only because I left all 4 out of the 5 CD's at home (more space for other games and DVD's, bought the game disc, but then I had to uninstall the game) while I'm at Uni and a single DVD sounds mighty useful.
