    I've noticed that the US ship date for CMR3 seems to have slipped back to March...what's up with that? It's out in Europe, so I assume this has nothing to do with coding difficulties...why in the world would they delay it until after Christmas?

    The PS2 version has been delayed, but not the Xbox version. As you said, it's already out in Europe, so presumably it's taking longer to convert the PS2 version. Here's the link to the Gamespot news article: http://gamespot.com/gamespot/stories...896562,00.html

    Thanks for the link, but all the sites I've checked (EBgames, Amazon, etc) all list the Xbox and PS2 versions as March 2003...

    Both versions are already out in Australia, so yes the ps2 version is finished. Does it have an online option? If so maybe they need to tweak the net code for the US.

    OK, I apologize in advance for waking this slumbering thread, but the dates on this game are driving me crazy.
    Codemasters US website still says Dec 3 for the Xbox, which is only 5 days away. But I can't find a single retailer that shows they'll have the game until Feb. And the PS2 in March, every one of them has the same dates.

    I think the Xbox version was delayed afterall. They might be including Xbox Live compatibility, which is the reason they gave for delaying Pro Race Driver too. Have you tried emailing Codemasters US?

    Well, we need a Xsara in a racing game for the xbox considering that RS Challenge doesn't have one.
    did any of you happen to watch the Rally Network Q on OLN or otherwise? The turn where Grunholm and others lost it was fantastic footage. Too bad Safari is gone next year[​IMG]
