A Be a pro screenshot showing the hud like "call for a pass, call for a kick" and other off the ball controls.

Doubt it'll happen

the fanhub should also be unleashed in all its glory. all the drills should be playable before the game comes out, because that's what the training ground is for. practise. whether we practise now or in an actual NRL match is a moot point, they should just unleash it all. the "we like to keep few surprises" card doesn't with fanhub work anymore, because we can see what it is. passing, tackling and playmake drills. the surprise behind these drills isn't going to be much, id like to play them now, because when the full game is out the training ground/airport hangar will be the last place i visit.

I thought at some point Ross mentioned it required a fair bit of work to move the other drills into the fanhub.

I'm sure guys like Wouldy have already unlocked them if they were actually included in the files lol.

Haven't read every page, but something I've noticed about these "place-holder" dates that stores put up. Over the years I've noticed that for all the producers and developers saying that "they're wrong", the games almost never (I only say almost, because maybe there's one I can't remember) come out BEFORE the dates released on retail sites.

If nothing else, it's curious that it happens so much. We always hear that "they're just guessing", but a game doesn't seem to come out BEFORE a guess. Maybe it'll happen this time, maybe not.

Purchasing for big retail outlets and specialist stores is generally done reasonably in advance of a products release. I've myself been a purchaser myself and it was never a case of place an order and wait and see. It might be different in these cases, but it doesn't seem sensible.

In the last 4-5 years I've noticed more and more game retailers leave up a TBA until they are completely sure. One time a local chain store changed their online release date from a TBA to an actual date and later back to a TBA, which frustrated me a little, so I rang and asked why. To my surprise I got put through to their National Purchasing Manager.

He got back to me and told me that they received an update from the National Distributor (GDE I think) and he asked them where they got that from and that was the games' producer. They only changed it because of that and then there was a delay again.

Easy to point the finger at retailers, but they are sometimes receiving information down a chain and over the years have become increasingly aware of dates changing. They don't all just pick a number out of the air or inspect other retail sites.

Haha, I think I was meant to, but there was a delay as I never got an approval from myself. Tongue

Interesting and thanks for sharing. Aren't Big Ant the producers of the game and Tru Blu are the publishers? If this is correct then Big Ant gave them the release date?

Big Ant are the developers (makers) of the game.

Tru Blu are producers (pay associated costs, the developer, licenses in some cases - such as this) and also publishers.

Big Ant work to finish the game.
Tru Blu work to finalise licenses (quite extensive work itself) and publishing/release.

In the end, as Tru Blu are ones who more or less own the finished product, they also have the right to set release dates.
