Canadian ROCK BAND “tour” delayed!

Another reason for me to personally loathe EA… Yesterday MTV Games confirmed rumours that the Canadian release of ROCK BAND (all versions) was going to be delayed until December 18, the same date that the PS2 version is scheduled for release across North America.  I’m going to side with the conspiracy theorists on this one that the product that was meant for Canadian retail has been reassigned to the US in order to meet demand, as EA has previously commented that they the game would be in very short supply throughout the holiday season.

Oh well, I guess it will be a Guitar Hero III holiday for me and my friends/family.  A release date that close to Christmas coupled with incredibly short supply will mean it will be virtually impossible to get.

I hate you EA.  You screwed the innovation of football games with your exclusivity deal with the NFL (I’m an NFL 2k guy, Madden ftl).  You screwed Canadians out of ROCK BAND.  You better not screw around with Mass Effect’s sequels!
