PG Break Episode 08


Filed: Anarchy Reigns, Community, Games, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, PGTV

PG Break 08 fires off with a truly PRESS START  moment before turning our attention to tons of Max Anarchy/Anarchy Reigns news – two new characters, a Japanese launch trailer, and a preview of the Dilated Peoples track, This Is Madness.

Finally, we break the bad news about Anarchy Reigns US/EU release date – SEGA has decided to change the date to TBC. While our work on the game is finished, localized, and ready to go, as publisher, SEGA gets to make the final decision as to when it is released. The Japanese release date, however, remains unchanged for July 5, 2012.

Show Notes:

Please…By the love of everything in gaming…Release this game! I have a crap ton of people willing to buy this day one and even at the gamestop I previously worked at already has preorders out the wazoo. Please give that NA release (EU too, I know everyone's waiting). Sidenote, music is freaking AMAZING in this game,

I'm sad now

What? What is wrong with Sega? God, I hope they don't release this game in the fall when the market will be flooded. I know Sega likes to shoot themselves in the foot sometimes, but they really need to stop doing that. They're going to run out of toes.

Im not happy, what can we do to make SEGA release this. I do NOT want to see this drop away.

Keel Posted on May 25, 2012 at 6:02 pm

What? No release date yet in EU? Come on Sega, that's not fair!

I hope Platinum Games would find a better business partner in the future. You deserve better than this.

@&$%#ing Sega, I tell ya. Anarchy Reigns looks great, and even though I don't care much for rap, I think that the soundtrack is not bad at best and tolerable at worst, which is more than I can say about most rap.

This is absurd! A worldwide Summer release would mean little to no competition. A Q4 release means going against blockbuster titles, and mostly those with brand name recognition (which sadly is the only thing consumers look at, quality be damned!)….that is assuming the game will be released in the West at all. Is it?
Anarchy Reigns has been a day 1 in my list since it was announced. You guys at P* have my support and sympathy. It's downright unfair to see your hard work tainted by an outside party's poor decisions.
If the game will be Japan exclusive, would it include English menus? I'd prefer P* knew they have a fan in Europe but I'll import if need be.

I cannot believe this.

The release date that it was supposed to come out on was an amazing date. In the middle of the summer there would be absolutely no competition from other games!!! If they delay it to the fall, there will be TONS of games that it has to compete with, and it has a WAY higher chance of flopping!!! I really hope sega doesnt screw up the game… The game is already finished for gods sake! If Sega doesnt release this in NA, I am going to be so pissed. Im truly sorry for platinum for having such an awful publisher! I will definetely import this from JP if it never comes to NA since it does have english menus (thanks for that platinum!).

PlatinumGames indeed deserves better than this. Sega should be thankful for being able to publish their games, but sadly it seems they aren’t capable of handling the marketing side of things. I guess it’s time for the fans to make their voice heard, but sadly not a lot of people know about this game which is again Sega’s fault.

I'm depressed. The only place I know where to get Max Anarchy is at but it cost about $30 more (and that doesn't include the shipping fee).

slaaan Posted on May 27, 2012 at 11:13 pm

I really hope Anarchy Reigns gets released in NA and EU. I even went out and sold some games I liked just so I could have enough to purchase Anarchy Reigns day one. I’ll be pretty depressed if I can’t play this game.

A damn shame. SEGA is in dire need of a new management. Hope it still hits the west!

jeudevoiture Posted on June 4, 2012 at 12:34 am

it isen't possible that game drop away! It's an amaizing game. It should be released! Anymay, i hope it was! Thanks for this discovery!
