in support of those who agree with the delay of the launch, you will be glad to hear that
Bob Geldof has got musicians together to help raise cash for Japan , so far Muddy Waters, the drifters, wet wet wet and the beach boys, they have agreed to sing the tide is high !!

I don't wanna sound like a right so and so but I don't agree with this decision.
It's only a game. People are being killed in War every day, but CoD is still released.
I feel for the people in Japan and what has happened, but it shouldn't have affected the release of the game imo.
May have lost yourself a sale here. I'll probably be playing something else by the time it comes out.
Sony are aware that Homefront is being released in the UK on the same day right? I was going to buy Motorstorm, but with things as they are, I have no choice anymore, so I'm going to end up buying Homefront, which means I won't have enough to buy Mototstorm when it finally comes out.
Sweet: Still has the original Motorstorm.

People comparing man made 'disasters' (war) with a natural disaster (earthquake/tsunami) are bonkers.
Having just read the whole thread YOUR statement is the bonkers one, unless you wish to highlight my reading error?
People are asking why FPS' aren't cancelled when we lose armed forces personnel. That is a war. People die from war every day.
Natural disasters strike randomly and without warning for the majority of times. People being killed by earthquakes are completely different to people being shot in a war torn country.
This is why comparing the 2 and asking why a game based on destruction from an earthquake has been banned when COD/MoH/Homefront et al haven't.
SCEE have done the right thing, and I tip my hat in their general direction

Like I said earlier Sony were going to release it after what happened in the Haitti earthquake and the one in New Zealand so why delay it for this one, do the other people involved in other earthquakes not matter. Were Sony being insensitive after New Zealand etc or over sensitive now?

The New Zealand quake and especially the Haiti quake were not so close to the release - although they were both terrible disasters. Also Sony is bound to me more affected by the Japan earthquake they may have lost employees and their employees may have lost family.
Delaying the game is completely understandable in light of this crisis. Our thoughts should be with the Japanese people and their friends and family rather than worrying about a delayed game.

Right, okay, conflicting information doing the rounds then. Still, anyone in Europe who pre-ordered will have their delivery en-route already...
Correct - I live in Denmark and got my copy yesterday. I assume I'm not the only one by far.
What really sucks is that the online servers are not up - and online was the primary reason for me buing the game. But (it seems) I have to wait for the game to launch in the UK before I will be able to play the game I allready payed for and own.

Strange you are surprised that the servers aren't up. I really hope it stays that way as it's the most appopriate thing to do, especially as so many people on this forum have shown just how mature and socially responsible they are.
