UT2004 in 2004

Though Epic Games' official policy regarding release dates has been "when it's done" since long before Unreal Tournament 2004 was announced, Atari sends along a note acknowledging that they were targeting the UT2003 follow-up for release before the end of this year, but that this goal has slipped. Here's what they have to say:
Atari and Epic Games announced today that the release date for Unreal Tournament 2004, the highly anticipated follow-up to last year's smash Unreal Tournament 2003, has been moved to February 2004.

The game was previously slated for release during the 2003 Holiday season.

Ok, let's say you hit the nail on the head & people just like to complain.

If we take that to its logical conclusion, we could say that if you piss off enough people eventually they will act.

For instance, in good ol' Great Britain there are way too many survelliance cameras. I read once that the average guy going to work drives & walks past 400 cameras. One of the worst kinds of cameras is the speed enforcement cameras. The brits call these things Weapons of Mass Persecution & they are starting to sabotage them, even bomb them.

Eventually someone will make a petition about game developers delaying games or making umpteen patches, and I'm thinking that eventually a game will be boycotted. While it is impossible to get the whole community together on anything, the internet is a very powerful tool & without it, gamers could never organize.

Now let's say that enough gamers organize a boycott so that it puts out a message to the developers to quit lying to the public, or whatever it is you'd like to call it. Let's say that its only 5%. But consider, that could be as many as a million gamers. I think that if I were a developer & I saw such a huge loss because of gamers organizing against devloper bullshit that I would change my company's strategy. I would cushion my release dates & pay better attention to beta-testing.

I don't know. Maybe it will never happen. But it seems to me that the more developers pull this shit, the more people get sick of it. Yes I'll still buy halflife2. But with lesser games, like UT2K4 or Call of Duty, I really don't mind waiting a few weeks or months & buying it for 1/2 price on ebay. I think that's the real issue. Choices and possibilities are opening all the time in our digital world. I think even the little gamer can make a difference.
