Hurry Up And Wait (in the cold)

Bad news for all of us Canadian wanna-be rock stars. Rock Band is going to be delayed in Canada until December 17th.

"MTV Games, which owns Rock Band developer Harmonix, has confirmed to Shacknews that Canadian stores will not receive any version of the musical supergroup simulator until December 17."

There's a little speculation over the reasons for the delay. While speaking with a PR Rep from Harmonix, The BBPS uncovered that the Canadian version may take a little longer, because of special packaging regulations.

Americans need not worry but Canadian gamers might want to look out for this one. Currently the dollar value in Canada is nearly equal to the penny as the American dollar, but the Canadian price point is still in the air for Rock Band. While we’re hoping it will be around the $170 mark, Canadians may need to pony up more– but we couldn’t get a definite answer to support that. However, because of packaging regulations in Canada the release of Rock Band may see some small delays to go north of the border. Canadian standards force all packaging to come in both English and French-Canadian, and this issue- coupled with shipping quantities to Canada- may delay the release in the Great White North. Our advice? Drive south until you see a sign that says GameStop.

Whether or not this is the real reason for the delay, I'm sure Harmonix would love to split up the releases a bit, supplying this demand might be a tough one.

The game is still scheduled for release on November 20th in the United States.

Be warned, I do not excel with the words, but I'll do my best. I have favorites, but I try and keep an open, unbiased mind. Just because I love my XBox, doesn't mean I hate my PS3. Also just because I love my shiny new current-gen games, doesn't mean I can't appreciate old games with technically inferior graphics.
