North American release

Discussion in 'Rugby Video Games & Apps' started by captainamerica, Jan 13, 2006.

  1. Was beginning to sweat a little, as easports.com (US) is covered with Arena Football. If I could find the guy who thought that was a good idea I'd punch him in the throat.

    Arena Football . . . in a video game . . . anyone who buys that should cut off their head.

    In other news, if you go to the EA Store, you can see that they are pre-ordering for Rugby 2006. There is no release date set, but the almighty coupon for Free Shipping expires March 31st (and it's only valid for Canada & USA)
     
  2. Forum Ad Advertisement

  3. Just updating for the northside americanos.

    EB Games have a shipping date of Feb 14th and for 30 bucks (wow [​IMG]). I'd like to think they're somewhat reliable over here in the States as I've never really been let down by them so . . . we'll see.

    Does look as though the EA stranglehold on the franchise tightens with each year

    Now shipping to non-rugby regions
    Now advertising on non-rugby regions

    Thats like a Madden advert in australia.

    For all good and purposes I hope this is a beauty, so we can jump on the EA bandwgaon like we do with Tiger Woods and Madden.

    In the past we have been shooting EA in the foot

    Hopefully we wont be doing that much more, and perhaps shooting any challengers in the foot.

    OK, foot in mouth, i'll shut-up now.............but i'm excitied!!!!!!!

    mate the way that project is heading, we will always be able to abuse EA until we die

    that is the worst sports game of all time.........its worse than Rugby2004

    EAcricket needs to sell its rights to ICC liscenses to codies

    That way BLIC/RPIC can get on with things and make the world a better place

    will be interesting to see how arena football goes for EA, and will give us an indication how much effort they put in to our sports titles, coz i bet Arena Footy will be atleast a decent playable game, unlike Rugby 2004. [​IMG]

    Interesting bit of marketing having Ireland (and only Irish players) on the cover.
    Very interesting indeed.

    Also, if you follow the Gamespot to the guy who previewed it (here), he has this thing to say:
