Noooooooooooo!

Chants of "EDF! EDF! EDF!" on the go vanishes...

Chuck Norris won the 1983 world series of poker despite him holding just a joker, a 2 of clubs, a 7 of spades, and a green number 4 from Uno and a monopoly 'get out of jail free' card.

(Gold Mario Amiibo for trade. PM me for details)

February 2013 release date, which is roughly two months from now. I just can't see them canceling a project that close to release.

Nothing has been canceled. They posted the release date (February 2013) and the boxart back in November. The game has likely already gone gold or is close. You don't cancel a project that close to release.

Star Fox 2, Half Life 2 on the Dreamcast, Star Wars Battlefront 3, that one NBA game...

Um...Dreamcast kinda says it all. SWBF3 still had yet to enter the beta and final polish stages, not to mention financials were the root cause. And the NBA game you are referring to was canned because even management knew it was crap (paraphrased).

EDF2017P is a port, so there's really no way it can be "crap". If they've announced a February 2013 release date as of November 2012, then financials shouldn't be an issue since the game is practically done. Also, the Vita is established with well over 3 million units sold at this point, as well as a viable online distribution method, versus retail-only for the Dreamcast which was pretty much destroyed as soon as the PS2 was released.

I see no reason why this game would be canceled at this point...but stranger things have happened I guess :-P

Reallllly don't want this to be true. However, I wouldn't mind a "Very Easy" mode. I made it to the second to last stage on EDF: IA and I just gave up.

Amazon has Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable listed as "currently unavailable" for preordering. This isn't good.

Or it's going to be a PSN exclusive like some of the other Japan-centric Vita games, which you obviously wouldn't be able to rent from Gamefly.

You read it. You can't unread it.

Yeah. It's now PSN only.
Luckily it's like 500mb.

Source?

Source?


Notice the EU page:
http://www.uk.namcob...ses/for/ps-vita

Lists PSN next to Vita for it, whereas the other Vita games like Ridge Racer list Vita only.

With Gamefly cancelling rentals for NA. It's almost a guarantee here to.

Yeah, especially with the recent announcement of EDF 2025. It's highly unlikely that D3 would completely cancel EDF2017 Portable, yet announce a new entry from the EDF franchise within a few days.

So, what does everyone think the price tag is going to be when it hits PSN?

I'd import too. But would rather it be confirmed other regions would be able to play online with US players. Plus language.

$29.99 seems like the best bet, but I would love to see this on sale for $19.99...

Try reading the rest of the thread and you would see that all fingers point to a PSN/digital-only release.

I did -_-. Have the game preordered on NewEgg and I don't want to pay 40 for it.Hopefully it's just Europe.

Amazon just cancelled some orders as well.
I'm afraid Newegg is probably next. Ah well, I'm glad it's still coming.

It's listed on the US Playstation blog as a choice for Most Anticipated PS Vita game in their 2012 Game of the Year voting.

It's digital, and $40.


Wow. Pass.
If they're saving on production costs, I'm not paying $40 then.

Yeah. They missed an opportunity there. $29.99 and I *might* have considered it. I'll wait for a sale or PS+ deal.

Well if it's digital only that explains the pre-order pulls.

Yeah, not to jump on that bandwagon, but $40 for digital-only? I'm out.
