So will it be before Christmas? Or will it be out in January or later?
Our intention is before the end of the year.

the odds of this being better than rugby 2005, 4:1
the odds of this being better than rc2006, 2:1
the odds of this being a hox to boost pre-sales revinue, and the reallity is that there is no rl2, 1:1

do the developers have any sence of urgensy what-so-ever muzz? although weve seen disasters caused by rushing (ala r2005) theres a point when this game could turn out like guns and roses next album, chinese democracy (axle rose has been saying its been coming out every year for the last 10yrs for those playing at home)

Bugger... No offence, but only 6 weeks ago you were "still on target for a september release...
What gigantic catastrophy was it that pushed it into Nov-Dec or possibly January?

I know your busy Mario, but lets hear something from you, please?
There isn't much to say really, other than quash the rumours of an October release. Many people are expecting that because some retailers have suggested 21 October will be the release date.

A release in October is pretty unlikely at this point. [/b]
Well, I don't know about everyone else, but thanks for that Mario.

Now at least I can still look forward to it but without having that "it's almost here" feeling that I think kinda ****** people off.

I'd rather be able to dismiss it for October, and focus on something else for the time being. I'm sure I'm still gonna love it when it comes out, I just feel good now it not like a carrot on a stick in front of us.

Obviously there are issues that need dealing with, but for future titles from you guys, how 'bout promoting it with a release window rather date. Like "Oct-Nov 05" untill the whole 100% sure factor kicks in.

Anyhow, can't tide us over by telling us who the top 3 rated teams are?

Well, "September 05" was the initial release window, and we shifted the release window in early September. We have never set an actual date.

Things only become 100% sure when the game is 2-3 weeks before being on shelves.

In any case, the continued development has proven very beneficial for the title, so everyone will benefit in the end. Waiting sucks, but hopefully you'll find that its worth it.

I think we were all hopeful that the delay would only be small and would come out in ocotber but its not the case now. So long as it comes out before the end of the year I will be happy and as others have said they are other games to buy and play while we wait for nrl 2 to be released.

At least most of us are not having a mental breakdown here about the delay compared to the official league forum members - would probably sign up myself on that forum if it wasn't for all the under 10 year olds on there moaning about things they have no idea about............

....and Mario: Can't see why people are complaining about the video ref in that NRL deluxe vid - that first try was clearly grounded prior to being lost (and correctly given as such by the video ref)..........also a totally different animation to the disallowed try shown in the same video (also correctly not given by the video ref).

Well, "continued development" eh? I'm all for anything that makes a game better prior to release, it really is the gamers preferred legitimate excuse.

I mean if the delay has meant 4-5 annoying bugs are history, well, I could stand waiting a little longer even. As long as it means this game has the lastability of something like Jonah Lomu Rugby.

Also, if your out there Mario, is a PSP version, ruled out ever?

While we're on the subject, if there is a X-Box version, please have custom soundtracks, I get soooo sick of the same music over and over and over.

It seems to me I've found a possible weakness of Mario's, being reasonable in my expectations and not screaming insults or sales threats, like someone that it's been better without recently.

Anyone know where I can download that video? I have ADSL at long last. Which means playing against you guys on PS2 or XBox online is now a serious possibility
