Hopefully the waiting will let them send a patch to fix up any bugs that pop up.

Resisting the temptation on getting a PS3, but those black friday deals coming around the corner are going to make it hard.

Yep, non-gamer here. Don't own a console or for that matter a TV compatible to one. I watch TV through a tuner card in my PC, which timeshifts what I see to a few seconds after the signal it gets, which of course would effectively render any game console connected to it unplayable.

I'm interested in RS because I've wanted to learn guitar since I was a kid and now am overdue for a mid-life crisis when a game comes out advertised as a fun and addictive way to learn the instrument. It's a good kind of strange to hear myself say the words, "my guitar."

They throw in Freebird and a Radiohead song when the PC version releases.

Rocksmith
Three Exclusive Effects Pedals

Here's a chance to access special in-game extras. Order your copy of Rocksmith and receive three Best Buy exclusive in-game effects pedals:

The Powerchorder instant power chord harmony pedal allows players to easily execute complex shifting power chord riffs and 5th harmony leads simply by playing single notes.
The Trem-Ol! vintage surf/Rockabilly/Western movie tone effect pedal couples a fixed speed, selectable tremolo with a slap-back delay.
The Robo Crunch high-tech, low-fi synth simulator combines a bit reduction effect with a slow moving flanger.

Plus, you'll also get access to a unique in-game Gibson guitar. The S-1 guitar includes unique pickups that were designed so they could produce both humbucking and single-coil sounds.

Do you know if they addressed the issue with the Riff Repeater and lives?

That is a deal breaker for me.

Also, I have heard that you can't slow the tempo down to practice harder riffs, is that true?

caldaar
11-15-2011, 11:07 AM
They did... They said that the lives is one of the things that they are working on. They agree that 5 is too short, but also they didn't want to leave you in a never ending loop getting frustrated. The idea was, if you couldnt get it... try something else and come back to it. I am not sure what they are going to change about it, but changes are coming.

I hope that they set it so that you at least have to hit 100% twice before it bounces you out.

I hope they allow infinite so that the player, can determine when they are finished.

I guess they haven't said anything about changing the tempo? Slowing the tempo down to a more manageable speed allows you to practice complex riffs at a pace you are comfortable with.

From the videos that I have seen, I guess beginners only play a portion of the notes.

With Guitar Pro 6, I can select a portion of the music I have trouble with and use a speed trainer, which will slow the tempo down and loop through the select bar(s)/note(s). It can also gradually increase the tempo after each loop until you reach the normal tempo of the song.

Here's screenshot of what I'm talking about.

caldaar
11-15-2011, 12:17 PM
Yeah, guitar pro 6 is nice. I have used it quite a bit. And you are right, in the rift repeater the beginners do not play all of the notes. There are two options, the leveler, and the (forget the name) the speed trainer. The leveler will keep adding more and more notes till you get to the point of playing all the notes of the rift. The speed trainer, will measure what you miss and how long it takes you to find the string/fret/chord and then increases you slowly to 100% speed. The lives are if you miss notes too many notes on a pass, you lose a life. You can go back into the rift repeater for that rift, but it is the time for the reload piece that everyone is complaining about. Adding an option at the end to reset your lives without reloading would proably eliminate any complaints.

caldaar
11-15-2011, 12:22 PM
Oh, and the speed trainer... is a speed trainer for the level that you are at (not adding notes)

I am also waiting for the PC version as I don't have a supported console...coupled with not wanting to mod my setup even if I did have a console.

What I have to give credit to is that Rocksmith has really marketed Epiphone Les Paul guitars well. In fact, I am eying an Epiphone Les Paul Ultra III in Midnight Sapphire so bad that they are about to bleed, I think.

However, the lack of information on the software release for PC is really turning me off. With less than a month before the date that every retailer "thinks" they are getting Rocksmith PC, there has not been one shred of evidence that it is on track. To the contrary, moderators on each of their Facebook pages have quickly stated that any date being tossed out is not theirs and they will let you know. This doesn't bode well for optimism.

I've beta'd a few games and understand the need to wait till it's done right.

But yea...they need to throw us a bone with a little info. My guess is it's not going to be ready for 12/13 (the BB "release" date). No big deal, just give us a little heads-up is all I'm asking.

Even a systems requirements posting would be a positive. Ubisoft has to be careful because signs are starting to point toward a silent cancellation.

Bought the 360 version on release and now waiting on the PC version... Primarly because one of my many jobs at work is programming so I am looking forward to trying to hack apart the Data files and see if there is a way to put custom tracks/tabs in... If so I think that would greatly open up the programming from a learning perspective (not that it isn't great already).

helkish
11-21-2011, 08:32 AM
Actually, it's quite the opposite. The rocksmith cable acts like a sound card with a mic port. Coincidentally, so does my Behringer USB interface.

http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards...5-rocksmith/60745484 (http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/624515-rocksmith/60745484)


They could put a check in their to make sure it is the rocksmith cable. Some of the games that come with video cards, check to ensure that the model video card is actually installed.

I doubt anyone would actually go out and buy Behringer or other USB interface for the game, considering additional rocksmith cables go for $30. And a cable already comes with the game.

My remark is not in response to absence of system specs. It is in response to negative reviews of the game coupled with any references to PC being either removed from official locations or blown off as hearsay by official moderators. I have not concluded that a cancellation is occurring but I am not discounting the possibility, neither.

Ubisoft is having a few legal issues right now and they don't seem to be handling them too well. There doesn't appear to be any evidence that this is the root of a PC delay so other factors must exist.

As I mentioned before; there are other routes for PC users to play a rhythm game with any real guitar and Rocksmith is definitely not the first. Ubisoft is losing more and more ground as they delay.

With Guitar Pro you select just a portion of a song and slow the tempo down and and repeat it over and over. It can also increase the tempo after a number of iterations.

The problem with Guitar Pro is that most of the free tab you download from the internet is either wrong or some eles interpretation of the song.

I think the makers of Guitar Pro are trying to address this now. In the latest version there is a feature called My Song Book which you can buy professionally tabbed songs.

It can display both tablature and notes at the same time. Or you can chose to display one or the other.

Rocksmith also shows tablature it just comes flying at you.

Tablature is just 6 lines representing each string and a number which represents the fret.

panther289
11-23-2011, 06:05 PM
That's the delima for me. Guitar Pro is more for writing tab / music then a learning tool. It can be used as a learning tool with the scales, rythym progressions, and a looping feature with the tabs. But, it is geared more for someone needing a user friendly writing tool.

With the internet tab you really need to go through it to make sure it is accurate. Having a well trained ear helps. If you haven't spent time transcribing then you face an up hill battle trying to work the wrong parts out.

Rocksmith is a learning tool and game which has me playing more then I have in the last four years. Skill games and the dynamic difficulty keep me interested in a way Guitar Pro won't.

Hopefully Ubisoft will get a set date (12/13/11 would be great) and announce it here.

This thing ROCKS. You can loop over bars and practice all you want. You can even call up a little window that will show you the fingering on a guitar neck for the current bar. KILLER.

I was debating whether to get a 360 for Rocksmith, but now I can see that would have been a folly. PC version or nothing for me.

Cool, glad you like it. I picked up a copy at GC and started converting standard tabs to notation as I came from a cello / sheet music background.

I still want the Rocksmith for PC. It will give me the games aspect, a fun way to learn the songs quite fast, and the extra cord for multi-play. Not to mention the portablity of the laptop for traveling.

Exactly, there is no way in the world that they will release this Dec 13th. I really hope that I am wrong.

But there is no official communication, the game has not gone gold and no specs or any information is available for the PC.

Like this, nobody is hyped about it going live on the PC. I think Ubi is just going to focus on the PS3 & XBOX360. Perhaps release the PC version next year.

And sorry, some "tech" guy writing on the forum that it's still going to be released Dec 13th is not enough. If it's going to be released - where is the official company communication and the hype they need to build up ?

chrisw004
11-27-2011, 02:28 PM
I would think that the "tech" would have been told not to communicate what he did on Nov. 7th if in fact there was going to be a delay or cancellation of the PC version.
If they do cancel or delay, then we are talking VERY bad business and the word of mouth on something like that could really make a dent in Ubisoft's profits. It would be enough for me not to buy anything from Ubi again.

"Tech" probably wasn't told to communicate anything. UBI's official policy and release is still Dec 13th - which is what any "tech" or down the chain employee will tell you.

This is just the whole discussion, you have to look past that part and agree that the situation is VERY worrysome for the PC release.

Since the introduction of the draconian DRM for their PC games - I doubt they really care much about "word of mouth" http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

Windows 7 ultimate 32 bit

If you cap your RAM at 4GB, you should be okay. That is my hunch based on how other comparable games run in W7U. You may even be fine with the 2GB but GH3 was horrible for memory crash so I wouldn't chance it.

Umm...the main problem I'm concerning about is the graphics requirement. I tend to believe 2GB is adequate for such a music game but I really don't know the requirement for graphics card since I only have a 9300MGS on my laptop which is out-of-date today.

Dear club... keep waiting.

UPDATE:

Hey guys, this is Nao, the producer of Rocksmith. I got a bit of bad news about the PC version. Our team has been focused on the post launch support of the console versions with DLC and title updates to address the feedback weve been getting from the community. As a result, the PC version development fell behind schedule.

I know it sucks, but were a small development team so its tough for us to tackle more than a couple things at a time. The current plan is to have the PC version ready in May. Im sure this is disappointing news for those of you waiting for the PC version, but I promise well work to get it done as soon as we can. Thanks for your understanding, and we really appreciate all the support you guys have given us!

SUMMARY:

May is so far away, it is essentially meaningless. Translate Nao's statement to mean that PC version is CANCELLED.

May? I'm sorry, but this means goodbye Rocksmith for me.
Maybe if this had been announced earlier I would have made the jump to console due to the various deals that were offered last week (rebate on console and rocksmith at half price) but right now... No.

I'm sorry but the PC version of Rocksmith simply feels like a myth at this point. Two delays for PC users just leaves a bad taste.

I was really excited about the game a few months ago, but the more I hear about the PC version, the more depressing it gets.
At this point it feels foolish to wait for it any longer.

I watch TV on my PC with a tuner card, which plays a few seconds behind the signal it gets. Not an issue for watching TV, but would effectively render any game console connected to it unplayable. And my monitor has a bigger screen than any TV I would buy and squeeze in just for a gaming monitor.

I'm not a gamer. This is the only game either of those consoles has to interest me. I'm interested in a learning aid for teaching myself to play guitar.

I can't justify the cost of a console, TV and the game too when that money would be better spent on training materials, accessories for my electric guitar and maybe an acoustic guitar.

Hypothetically, if there were a cover band who called themselves Rocksmith playing in dive bars around Southend, England who had been calling themselves Rocksmith for a few years before Ubisoft went to register game under the same name, how do you suppose that the band of unknown, middle-aged never-beens would react? Probably demand what amounts to millions of dollars (pounds? euros?) in free publicity?

Still, hypothetically, do you think Ubisoft would, or even COULD, inform its customers of the situation? In a climate where many people are decidedly anti-corporation (despite the fact that Ubisoft as a corporation employs a lot more people than some English pub band) what is Ubisoft to do?

Change the name? That sets a fun precedent, doesn't it!?

Appease the band? Can't see that backfiring!?

Nope, enter the lawyers to demonstrate that the band's use of the trademark isn't significant in the marketplace and the loss of said trademark would, if anything, be MORE valuable to the band than if Ubisoft had simply changed the name in the first place.

Incidentally, porting a game from the XBox to Windows can be *extremely* easy and I imagine a working version of Rocksmith exists for the PC but with the lack of region-locking Ubisoft lawyers probably advised the delay in light of the trademark case.

I mean, if such a thing were happening right now... hypothetically speaking.

what is causing the delay is they released consoles got swamped by people going

FIX THIS FIX THIS!! I"M NEVER PLAYING ANOTHER UBI GAME UNLESS THEY FIX THIS!

so why would they turn around and launch another version of the game with the same exact bugs in it? everyone in here complaining about the delay would then just be complaining about the bugs everyone else are.

they are going to try and fix the game on consoles and then roll any fixes into the first release for pc. and that is the smart move.

now i'm not saying that theres no chance it will get cancceled, if the dollar guys look at the numbers and think it wont proffit, then sure they will can it. but i think its way premature to be yelling "CANCELLED" at this momment.

I read an article in Rolling Stone, sorry haven't got the link to hand, but Ubi were apparently so close to canning the whole thing, let alone the PC version. I think it's just that Ubi have no faith in the game and don't want to spend any more money on it.

Not forgetting how much Ubisoft hates PC games, of course, as they think nobody actually buys them and that we all pirate them.

Call me a geezer, but I seem to recall a time when companies were expected to get new products working right before bringing them to market.

Now, they look at R&D as a liability and limit them to the equivalent of a handful of nerds working out of a garage or basement, market the first rough beta these guys want to test out and blow the rest of the new product's budget on marketing to hype the underdeveloped concept ware.

Then when the inevitable flood of bug reports pour in due to the swarm of bugs never worked out of it, they act completely blindsided by cause and effect, to the point of being incapacitated to carry on the advertised continued development.

It's funny that they make the announcement within 2 weeks of the damned launch date. Other companies can manage to not only release on console, but also PC the same day...WTF is Ubi's problem? As someone else pointed out, you knew about this well before the 28th...how about clueing your customer base in? I passed up GREAT deals on consoles because I was led to believe by your company that I would only be waiting a couple more weeks. In my book, that's a misrepresentation by your company, leading me to wonder if you can deliver this product at all. This is how you alienate customers. Instead of knuckling up and fixing things in time to deliver, you push off your customers to give yourselves time to do it at your own pace. I was planning on buying 2 copies of this game, one for myself, and for my nephew. Now I will not be buying ANY copies.

Many things feel very underhanded about this whole deal. Obviously, yanking a project 2 weeks before release and a day after cyber monday (where PC users could have jumped to a console rather cost-effectively) is going to peeve many PC users off. Then, you give a lame excuse that the technical issues with the consoles would only be duplicated on PC...no they wouldn't as there is no AV lag and PC users know how to deal with patch updates for minor fixes. You also give a BS response that DLC is holding you up? So, the 2-3 song packs are holding you up for 6 extra months? What about the 12 song packs that are scheduled over that time? Are those 12 song packs going to translate to another 4 years? If the same people who do the note tracking were also doing the porting (which we know they aren't) Ubisoft is a very poorly run company (but we know they are, anyway.)

Ubisoft hates PC games and they are not shy about saying PC users are all pirates. Go on any pirate site and look at the flood of 0-day warez for consoles, Ubisoft.

Anyone who is serious about learning to play guitar would more likely own a PC or a Mac than they would a gaming console. Market research is a failure at Ubisoft. The reason why you are doing so poorly in sales and reviews is the above reason.

I don't have any idea about the exact numbers, but it's true that the market target is different than classical games and the target is richer, older and more prone to have a PC or a mac than a console.

It's by the way a total failure from Ubisoft to not propose a Rocksmith mac, considering the number of musicians or wannabe musicians on this platform (and I really don't like apple).

They completely ****ed up they market strategy, but they will complain that it's because of "piracy".

Your right.

Established musicians already own a PC or Mac with software like Cuebase, Guitar Rig, Amplitube, etc.

I'm not saying there isn't a musician with that doesn't have a 360/Xbox. But it's more likely they will have a PC or Mac, to lay tracks down etc.

Your personal anecdote doesn't automatically reflect the behaviors of all would-be guitarists as a whole.

Neither of our experiences are "the truth" for such a wide demographic as you would like to think.

BobPeters61
12-02-2011, 08:51 PM
The point is that the demographic to whom Rocksmith appeals most are would-be guitarists, rather than gamers.

So with a different demographic having nothing to do with whether or not they are gamers, then you need to look at the console ownership breakdown of the general population rather than that of just gamers.

Sure, more gamers have consoles than don't, but more people in general have computers than have gaming consoles.

Gaming consoles are expensive and do little more than simply play video games. And if the titles advertised on this ubi.com website are any representation of the content available for them, I personally could have more fun with an antique Super Nintendo than I could with either console to which this game is ported. Most people get more bang for the buck than that from computers, which can do all sorts of different things.

This should have released on PC first.

Everyone I know with a console has returned the game, because they can't wrap thier head around the fact that digital audio for Home Theater has an inherent latency to it. They scratch their heads like monkeys trying to pull a bannana from a clear box, and then proceed to throw feces at their 40" TV's in fustration.

PC has established standards for lowlatency audio that this game could have benefited from.
Not to mention with the power of todays PC's you could have created better amp/stomp sims, taken advantage of higher bitdepth, and higher sampling rates. Not tomention CUDA on Nvida GPU's that has been proven to work for complex audio processing with zero CPU impact.

Now with the lack of a PC version, and console customers being fustrated I see a poor future for this game.

By the time this game releases I will more than likely not care anymore, and that is a big let down.

**Side Note**
A smart thing would have been to partner with companies like Gibson, Fender, IK-Multimedia, and Peavy. Not Guitar Center, and Best Buy.

No, however, the fact that you are trolling a PC Waiters Club thread on a forum with a PC after stating you do own a PC says a lot. I am not creating any demographics. But I am stating a fact that more people own PC's than XBox's and PS3's combined.

Further, the technology and algorithms in this game were originally designed for another game/tutorial software which was, in fact, to be a PC and Mac only release. Ubisoft reverse engineered it to release on consoles.

Thanks for the term correction as you are correct.

As for the link...wikipedia search Rocksmith and you'll find some startling information if you look at the similar releases from other companies. Guitar Rising was to be a computer release. All links to the company involved are dead and they will no longer answer queries. Somehow, Ubisoft obtained the software.

JamOrigin are developers who have a couple pieces of software that are available today, as betas I think. One caveat, though, is that they are poor learning tools. You play the songs in the same fashion as Rocksmith but there is no progressive learning. Novices and beginners should prepared to have a lot of 1-5% scores until you are proficient at the song. That said, some guitarists just want a cool game that shows them some new tabs for songs at the same time. JamOrigin gives them the option.

SiliconSicilian

I will say that even purchasing the Rocksmith cable and using it with any computer teaching software is pretty sweet. I have personally tested the cable with Garageband and some others and it works quite well as a recognized Guitar Mic device. USB input even tells you the name of the cable (on my Mac anyway.) I just have to obtain my own cable now.

I must say that some of the arguments in favour of PS3 acquisition on this forum have me tempted to just buy a console. I do not currently own a dvd or blue ray player apart from the drive in my computer. The only issue I have is that my tv is an old tube tv with only composite inputs and I have no stereo system. This means I am likely going to have lag from day one.

It shows the 31st of May now.

I was hoping to buy the PC version this month... But no luck apparantly.

Tragic that there's such a delay.

I would agree that most musicians have a Pc or Mac and having a gaming station would be secondary.

My ProTools Rig is on a G4 / Mac.
Then I have 4 back up G4s in the attic.
There is an Areosmith joke in there somewere :-)
*loaded G4s are like $60 at the swapmeet now!

Then I have a primary PC,
gaming station PC, I only play COD series
car tuning PC laptop.

zbox - Nope!
PS3 - Nope!
PS2 - Have a PS2 and only keep GT4 in it.
I bouth the PS2 ONLY! to practice driving at high speed on the Grand Turismo series games.

I will not buy a PS3 just for RS
just to have it latent thru the very nice setup i have.
PS3 > recivier > onboard DSP EQ > DAC > Amp > speaker chain.
that is a good way to put an nice American guitar thru a nice LCD big screen :-/

to be honest I'd pay $200 in an instant
for a good PC or Mac guitar trainer app.
@ $300 I would pi$$ and moan ,,, then pay up!

the more i think about it the more i am sold ubi is not in tune with the target audience.

ppl with spare money are usually short on time
having a time for regimented lessons
a trainer app solves that for the working stiff
working stiffs have PCs and Macs.

I would be so excited if i could play any Hendrix song any amount better.

Game got delayed till May, well a slight disappointment but okay. See you in May then with my hard earned money, for the PC version is the only one I'll consider. I already have money invested for the Guitar & Recording, on my PC, like I'm sure most guitar players do.

Not buying a console...

ever.

Not entirely sure. They state the expected date is December 13th, but Amazon still shows May 31st.

I'm really anxious to get my hands on the PC version - I couldn't care less about consoles - but I guess the only way to find out when we'll get it is by waiting until Tuesday.

The semi-official word is May 2012. That may either be a totally BS date with no PC release planned or they may be dealing with unknown issues and foresee 6 months as adequate to get that done.

What I really find funny is that every time someone changes the date to May 2012 on Wikipedia, it miraculously reverts back to December 2011 shortly after.

Any mention of the difficulty to "port" this software to PC is just BS, though. The "game" was originally programmed for PC and Mac release and adopted by Ubisoft. This may mean there are legal difficulties in getting a computer version released.

European console users are in this same boat as Ubisoft is having legal issues with trademarks overseas.

It really makes me angry when PC is delayed, All software is first made on pc then ported to consoles so why they porting back again seems backwards and stupid this was not a dig at ubi i talking about all software today...

Software developed for a specific platform is not automatically compatible with other platforms. The development has to be done from a computer because it's not like they're going to type the source code and compile it on a game console.

Lol....I got a "Your order is ready to pick up" email from Best Buy....

Your purchase will be ready for pickup at the Best Buy store #603 on Tuesday, December 13, 2011. Please do not go to the store to pick up your order before this date.

I guess I should call and break it to them....Or better yet, go and make a huge fuss and demand free stuffs... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

For the price of the 320GB PS3 I could almost buy another GTX580, Or 32Gb of memory, another 27" monitor, LCD TV, New audio interface... ect.

Point being there are better ways to spend $300 than on a PS3, or 360. Hence the "PC Waiters Club".

No way am I going to lay out big bucks for a console. Especially since I can only see myself playing the one game on it.

I'm still skeptical enough that the big advantage I was counting on this game for was to take the drudgery out of drilling in the muscle memory, which I've seen as a substantial advantage. I gave up on eMedia's piano method with my midi keyboard on that point and just use it like I did my mom's piano as a kid.

However, the night before the RS/PC release was originally promised, I can somewhat quickly make 7 chords: all the major chords except b maj, for which I know b7 instead. I can play C on each string at will and have figured out and taught myself to pick out the melody of a favorite old church hymn on mostly open strings.

Since I can't buy the game this month, I'm getting myself a nice low-end acoustic for the learning for which it's better suited than my electric.

Continuing my improvement as it's own reward, I just might have lost interest in this game by the next promised release date Or at least lost interest as a learning tool for which I'm neither waiting nor buying unwanted expensive electronics.

But if it eventually comes out in PC form, this game might still be a fun play pretty.

Just a quick Yo to fellow Club Members on release day. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Also a quick head up to those who like the more visual method of teaching. I ran into this site www.farhatguitar.com (http://www.farhatguitar.com) and really like the lessons. I've only been playing 3 or so months and it gave me a good feeling playing some Fade to Black last night (very slow mind you). I'm definitely going to spend some time there.

I'm sure it will make no difference in Ubisoft's priorities, but an onslaught of complaints on their facebook page should wake them up at least a bit. Follow suit! No respectable company waits until two weeks prior to the release date to delay a game 6 months that people are buying for the holidays. On top of that, a game that people may have bought an entirely separate piece of equipment on their own time just to use.

Yes, apparently. It would have been nice if ubisoft would have told Bestbuy before today so the order I made on 4 Dec wouldn't have ended this way nor have $80 in limbo with my paypal account.

Wow, this is ******ed. I wanted it on PC because I already have a good Tascam interface, so I wouldn't have to deal with all the latency issues you get on xbox and ps3.

dont know how legit thesre number are but imaging how much they would change with a PC realease

I did a bit of checking on RB, GH forums to
compare age polls. It was..interesting.
RB.......GH.......RS
18%...... - ......3% 1-20 age group
24%......52%......16% 21-30
29%......38%......34% 31-40
at this point, most of RB and GH customers
have been counted...RS is just getting
warmed up.
7%......10%......40% 41-50
0%......0%.......15% 51+
Ubisoft was most likely shooting for the
same customer demographics...they missed
but hit another age group solid,
middle age adults.

I hope they take that in consideration
with DLC offering, ads..ect.

Ya know, if your monitor is big enough you could play along with youtube rocksmith videos. Then when you get the actual game you'll have a head start on it.

It may well seem like a worthwhile toy to me when and if it ever does come out, but I'm not holding my breath.

Already stashed away my electric and switched to an acoustic for more convention beginner's guitar practice.

Hi PC Waiters Club,
I too had a laugh upon being emailed by Best Buy saying my preorder of RS was available, only to spend 40 minutes being told it was moved back to July 2012. While I hold out hope of a PC release, there's little in my mind that can justify a six month delay.

Sorry I don't have any links for you, but if I recall the only thing confirmed is that it is coming. No solid date yet though, some retailers have 05/31/12, some have 12/31/12 and so forth.
