    Had my copy of Official Playstation 2 mag Saturday and they are suggesting a May 2006 release for this game not Feb as it states on the EA website.

    I know rugby isn't their favourite game (understatement) but they do seem quite positive about this one in their preview.

    Anyway, just wondered if anyone had any more news on the release date?

    I wouldn't trust OPS2 as far as I could throw them to be honest. All other sources say February, and locksleys played a near final build. Nothing to worry about yet I reckon.

    ...Now, to see if I have replied before this thread is moved....

    [edit] Success!!

    If you look on the rugby 2006 thread in EA forums one of the EA sports reps has released the offical date - i.e 17th February

    coz we 1st in everyting else


    u name it, the Aussies and kiwis dominate

    thus they give the north a head start, whenever they can

    Besides, they always a good 10 hours behind us in anything, so we should share the wealth of being 1st in certain things

    Yeh, definitely showing as 10th Feb on the EA website now, instead of 17th Feb. Guess it's come out early to try and catch the 6 Nations hype ? Good news, it's looking quite good, still miles behind Madden, etc, but if they can improve it even, say, 10-15% (if you can quantify an improvement in numeric terms) then within a few years we should have a really good rugby game from EA.

    Good news for this year (according to those who have played it) are the remedying of the woeful animation fault in 2005 (thank the Lord), offloads and better ball physics, though R2006 will probably still suffer from quite weak AI, no contol over forward play and that "run in a diagonal line for 40 yards fault".
