I’m not disappointed. I would rather they their time with it and put a solid game instead rushing it putting a buggy game that crashes all the time and doesn’t work right kind of like guitar rock tour. Hehhah

They will release on March 17th, Apple Event. Possibly being first game in premium App store (read $$ price point). Hopefuly it will be a god game, but I don’t see people paying over $9 for ipod games; it’s a pick up, put device device, not 3 hours of gaming straight…(if the battery could even last that long).
