From what I've seen in the screenshots recently vs the screenshots released at last E3, they need more than an extra month to get the game right. Those initial screens looked HOT. The recent screens look something like MA2 for the Xbox. As far as I'm concerned, take an extra year to get it looking like it did at E3.

Sega hasnt let us down yet with its 360 titles. If the great SEGA wants to push a title back for quality controle purposes, let them. They know what we want and how to get it to us.

Chrome Hounds is already amazing looking i bet the game would like be great right now if they would have released it,but i they can make it even better that would be really kool.

Yeah, the 360 needs some games that had a fruitful two-to-four-year development cycle, rather than these one-year throw-aways and ports. I'm glad to see some games delayed, as long as they USE that time to make the game better instead of wasting it and churning out garbage. Oh, and by the way, Chromehounds definitely has a single-player mode. Online isn't mandatory, but it does provide the added benefit of LIVE multiplayer, which rocks.

Who cares, Chromehounds looks like a gay Mechassault ripoff and Myst for PSP, I mean, who wants a myst experience on a tiny psp screen?

It's delayed due to a re-luanch of the 360 in Japan.

Nice to see myst on the PSP, but they could port a more powerful game for the PSP, MYST 3 for example.

Longer wait..... or better quality? I'll have to go with quality on this one. But honestly I didn't know Myst was coming to the PSP!

I'm happy to wait .. quality is key. Just look at Oblivion for an example or Ghost Recon. No-one will pay

Too bad its not being held back for quality standards but because of the "relaunch" of the 360 in Japan. << LINK REMOVED >>

its a mainly online mech clan game guys with an actual online campaign mode thats kinda like a persistent universe where you help out your desired faction rule the country. its definitely coming to US shores dont worry about it (hell, they showed a trailer about a month ago in full auto that was a couple months old to begin with.), so itll make it to the party albeit probably like september or something. i cant wait.

Chromehounds looks pretty sweet, especially considering there won't be any MechAssault games coming to 360 anytime soon (if ever).

Gosh I sure hope Chromehounds turns out to be good. Otherwise I'll be disappointed. It seems like a basic Mech game on the outside, but it seems like it's oozing with potential on the inside.

Hmm...would really like to see Chrome Hounds make it here soon, but I never disagree with products being pushed back to meet quality standards. Now, as long as the standards that need to be met are high, then I have no problem. If they meant that they need to push it back a month so that it is just barely playable (low quality standards), then I will not be pleased.
