Major Nelson's blog said it would be today - someone put the link in another post.

I can understand new DLCs are delayed or are released in the afternoon (in Europe).

You'd figure GR games are ready and they could program them to be released at midnight...

The latest batch of Game Room content has also been delayed until further notice - I'll let you know once a new date is confirmed.

Well, that sucks. I was prepared for everyone (including Major Nelson) to be wrong about the Wednesday date since a) Thursdays were the days we were told before and b) MN had Tecmo Bowl (XBLA) listed for the 29th. Seemed the wires were just crossed.

Hearing this EU XBL chap say "until further notice" is really disheartening. What gives? This isn't that complicated of a process.

I'm confident that the pack will be out tomorrow. The major nelson posting probably had everybody confused. Obviously, Tecmo Bowl Throwback is already out and he said it would be out tomorrow. Whoever posted "until further notice" probably felt obligated to acknowledge that it wasn't out yet but wasn't confident enough to just say it was definitely coming out tomorrow.

Although I hope it comes out tomorrow I think we are looking at least a few days. Hopefully this doesn't mess the whole schedule up and push back Pack 4 also.

But the Passing did indeed come out a few days ago.

I was just really looking forward to getting the new Game Room #3 and Rapture Metro Pack...but I can't get either. I first heard about B2 coming out later, and I sighed and said: "Well, there's still Game Room." Then, I come on here today and my eyes are coming out of my head in shock...

Seriously bummed, I am.

Back to Assassin's Creed II...

Excellent find! I would've never searched there. =P

Yes, we do deserve proof. We've been loyal to them, and for those who aren't interested in GR; you could say that this doesn't exactly pull them in.

Failed sales tactic, Microsoft.

They really dropped the ball on this one. It would be nice if they did something to make up for the delay, like say extend the length of time to get the free mascots off this pack.

This does seem very curious, considering that Game Room launched weeks ago... and the Game Pack mechanic was already in place. I guess that the signs were there. Did anyone notice how the News section of the game never gets updated, and also that the ticker tape thing keeps saying that Game Pack 2 is coming soon, when it was available at launch? Wonder if Krome have already lost interest?

Still, hopefully today... was really looking forward to some Pitfall action! :)

Although, if he is using the term 'further notice', maybe that means next Wednesday at the earliest... :(

You know, thinking about it... it would just seem too strange for this to be a technical problem, with all of the time that they have had. Maybe there is a copyright issue somewhere with one of the games in this pack?

This is really wierd. I can't imagine there are big technical challenges involved in emulating these games.
Plus, this Tweet (and the date it was posted) would lead you to believe everything was in order the day before (expected) release

"Excited for tomorrow's release? What are you looking forward to?" (http://twitter.com/livegameroom) (5:45 PM Apr 27th)

Yeah, that combined with the apparent silence since the delay... how very odd. I wonder who owns the Pitfall copyright these days... is it still Activision? I remember that they did an update a few years ago.

I was excited too. Guess we'll just have to wait for some news to come in.

Trust me. No games, no play. I bought enough crappy games of theirs, my GS will stay RIGHT where its at for game room, I don't care if they ever drop games for this. If a game sucks (game room for now and Dead Rising FOREVER) I can just rack up a thousand on somethin else.

Yeah im disappointed/pissed. Over a month and nothing, PLUS there F'in ad' STILL says "game releases every week". False advertising as of now.
Whey would anyone defend them or be anything but disappointed? The "breaks have been givin" and zero word of what happened.

I would have been fine with a smaller list of launch titles - they should have lined up a bunch of games in reserve before launching.

Yeah, the GR and its schedule could have been handled better, but I find the outrage pretty amusing. I want to play Pitfall on my 360 as much as the next guy, but it's not that big of a deal.

They did. They had over 100 titles ready to go at launch. They fully planned to release titles weekly. They held off a month because, I guess, their servers didn't scale properly with the load or there was a serious lack of QA or there was a major RIF at a Krome Studios or all of the above.

When they were ready to release the 3rd set of games, something happened at the zero hour to prevent it. Of course, all of my assumptions give them the benefit of the doubt and buy into all the information publicly available.

Interesting - that makes sense. I wonder what caused the zero hour delay and if it will ever be revealed.?

One or two new games a week seems like a reasonable pace, and probably would have given them a more manageable player load. Still, you'd think if a game like 1 vs. 100 can pull things off relatively smoothly, a glorified game emulator could do the same.

Ah well, if I really wanted I could always dust off my old 2600 and play for realz.

Now this is very good news, but... does it annoy anybody else how they haven't tried to explain *why* the delay occurred? You could argue that it doesn't really matter, as long as the games are still coming out... but it kind of angers me that they don't think that we deserve an explanation. Don't get me wrong, I'm not one of these jump up and down "OMG! SO UNFAIR! MICROSOFT SUXXXXOR!!!" kind of guys... it is just the arrogance involved. Just a little message explaining the situation was all that was required. Instead we get a whole week of silence. I guess that what I am trying to get at is that this sort of thing really proves that they don't care about the gamers at all, nor about the experience. I know that this is nothing new... but they could at least pretend to care.

Or something. Oh, I don't know... :mad:

I know that I'm not spending another point on game room until they release the new games. They might have been hoping we want to get our medals quickly, so those of us who were holding out for the new pack, would buy more of the crap games they've already got.
