Replying to questions regarding the latest Store Update, Sony EU Blog chappy Jawad Ashraf has explained a couple of delays. Asked why Retro City Rampage was missing he said “it’s going through certification” and that they hoped the game would be out “sometime this month”.
Jawad was also asked where psychedelic ravey shooter Dyad had got to, “waiting to get some feedback from dev, actually,” was he reply. He also revealed the PS One Spyro Trilogy did have a ‘rough’ release date of October but this has probably slipped.
As for The Walking Dead Episode 4 the Blog seems to hint that the delay is not the fault of Sony. “We’re working with the publisher on this. As far as I know it’s not too far behind, but definitely not today. I’d really recommend asking Telltale as well,” commented Jawad.
When others questioned why Episode 4 was missing Jawad continued to suggest gamers contact the publisher rather than Sony. “It’s well worth letting Telltale know your sentiments as well. This is all assuming us as a bad guy. No fingers are being pointed but few seem to question Telltale. 2 sides to every coin”, he added.
Konami had told us that PS One classic ‘Castlevania: Symphony of the Night’ would be released yesterday but it appears this was never the case and it was not scheduled for release on the 10th, despite an official press release. “It shouldn’t have been announced as it’s not ready for release,” said Jawad in the comments, confusingly.
As for Counter Strike, “hopefully it won’t be too far away” and Doom 3, which is already available in the US, should be with us “in the next few weeks.”
