So, when's it coming out? September? C'mon, already!!

And, what do you do about the fact that there's a Risk package still on shelves being touted as a new thing?

Jay,
Could you try to port it to the PC by Xmas?

The game will definitely be out before the holiday season this year. We should be done with it well before then. We don't set the release dates though so I don't have one to share with you at the moment.

I'm not aware of a new RISK package. EBGames didn't list one. Is this a repackage of RISK2 for the PC?

This one's for the PC, and there's still this one for the PSX, both of which I have seen on the shelves at Best Buy and Circuit City and Gamestop/FuncoLand whilst looking for YOUR Risk.


I dont know anything about marketting, but it seems silly to have these on shelves during a year you're launching a new version.

Ah.

The PC one doesn't really compete with us. That looks to be a re-package of RISK 2.

The other one has been out for a LONG time. Note that it has the Hasbro Interactive logo in the lower right-hand corner. The fact that it is still selling is not surprising. RISK is a classic. We have a copy of that one here in the office.

I think it does compete, though. We are now a multiplatform family: PC, PS2, Gamecube. If I go in looking for a RISK game, the first one any multiplatform family sees can now be bought. We don't have to go looking for a platform specific version. To the uninitiated, simply looking for a RISK game, and not knowing to wait for the Cyberlore one, would not know to wait.
Shouldn't the publisger do you alla favour and pull the older versions?

(side note) As Steven was wrapping up this post, he was also wrapping up his 12th Melon Daquiri shot with a Jack Daniels back.

Has to be. It's the only explanation I can come up with for his sudden abandonment of the English language.

Online play - Yep.

That's the main reason it's not done yet.

As far as their decisions to continue to sell the other versions... I just can't tell you for sure. I see your point about being multi-platform and I agree to a certain extent, the fact is that I have no idea what Infogrames thinking is on this subject and don't want to pretend that I know more about their decisions than I do.

What I DO know is that the game kicks some serious booty.

Looks like we have until September to get our broadband situation figured out...

We have a "broadband situation"? Honey, is there something you aren't telling me?

The online gaming for the consoles more often than not requires broadband connections.

This is fantastic news! I posted it on my page here: http://www.consolegold.com/index.shtml#risk

Any comment on the Xbox version? Eb listed it and so did IGN but both are decidedly absent now...
