    As it's supposedly a July 19th or 23rd release date for the game (depending on where you look), a lot of info will be coming out here, there and everywhere. So, to keep things nice and simple (being as the conformation thread has gone all about the houses), put all info and news here.

    well HMV has all platforms for release for the 31st of October, but its listed under Rugby 07, so that can't be right, and same with amazon. Ea are being such nobs about this, they've already announced fifa 08. GOD :(
  4. I dont think it looks like we will get any official info. They must just going to be chucking it into the shops and thats that. Fooking pathetic!

    We should however hopefully have some insider (cough) info possibly by 6th June, but thats not the point really.

    been around town today, and went to a little independant game shop and also a Virgin XS store and they had rugby 08 for a July 20th release on Ps2 and pc. Sounds good! Better be a gd one due to the long wait we've had! :wall:

    The features from Woosaah's link in his last post

    That information seems genuine enough being as they are the distributors. 20th July will probably be a better release date as its on a Friday. The previous rumoured release date as 19th July would be strange as its a Thursday release date.

    French sites display a July 19th release, so britain should have the same release date.

    Was looking at that snippet and found myself far more excited by the features listed for Madden 08. How great would it be to have gang tackles in rugby.
    I wonder what tweaked means in the case of rucks and mauls. Improving mauling shouldn't take much effort as it basically didn't exist in rugby 06 except for the lame maul from lineouts.

    A refined version of 2001's Mauling and Scrum system would be nice, although no doubt it'll end up being yet more button thwacking.

    Am I the only person to think that Juan Martin Hernandez has been completely under-rated in every Ea sports rugby game he has been in???
