Curious to know why? Read on after the jump.
We all know that many rumors have been circulating about Harmonix Music Systems game Rock Band (Xbox 360, PS3). Sadly, rumors about further shipment delays have been confirmed. Canadian rockers will have to wait a bit more to get their mitts on their very own copy of the said game
Apparently, release of Rock Band on Canadian soil has been delayed even further from December 17 as initially verified by MTV Games to the 28th, according to Best Buy Canada and Future Shop.
Scarcity of the game isn’t the problem. Further shipment delays for Rock Band were caused by sales regulations that required exporters to include English translations along side the French-Canadian text already found in the games box and manual. Aside from that, shipping issues about “boxes the size of small cars” further complicated things.
Previously, distributor Electronic Arts noted that they will only be producing a handful of copies of the game this December; inciting paranoia among gamers to conclude that supplies of Rock Band was only being redirected to the US. Whatever the reason, Canadians will just simply have to hold out a bit more.
