    This still coming to Live? Any REAL details (price, release date) yet?

    I think it will be in shops around September time and probably cost the normal price for a new release.
    Can't come quick enough though.

    I thought it was an XBLA release?

    Been playing the beta since the weekend :) It's very faithful to the board game which is great :)

    It will be, yes - and PSN as well, IIRC. Expect this to be another 1600MSP, I reckon.

    Really?
    I was expecting it to be a normal game disc.
    This will be a huge download then.

    I'll be very surprised, with what they've shown that there's any remote possibility of it complying with XBLA size regulations.
    I never imagined it as anything other than a retail release, either.

    Also I wouldn't have thought Gamesworkshop would have let the rights to this go cheaply and added on the development time and cost would it be worth releasing this as an Xbox live title?
    I'm probably talking crap and it will end up being a live game, its just I think it would be a missed oppertunity for the people that don't have a live account.

    Well the Watchmen game seemed to blow any size restriction on XBLA out the water. Wasn't that around 1.5GB?

    "It was originally believed the game would be on Xbox Live Arcade, but it was revealed to be a store release title."
    According to Wiki.

    I just got into the beta too.
    The only problem is Tutorial mode is not accessible in the beta, and when I click on "Manual" I just get a blank page, so I don't really know how to play.

    Be sure to report that, then, so that it doesn't happen to anybody else.

    I completely forgot to download this last night.

    Will have a pop tonight, but I too have bugger all idea how to play. Fingers crossed whoever I play doesn't mind giving a n00b a brief run down...

    I'm guessing its an advantage to know the rules for the board game.

    I shall be reading through it again once I know a release date.

    *Shrug* 1000GSP rather than 200. Meh. Price was NEVER a factor.

    Only managed part of a game, it doesn't fit into a lunch time :-( There's some connection problems, but the game played well once we got into it. It's been a long time since I played the board game, so I made some silly errors which meant I got a pasting.

    I think this might be the game that convinces me to get a gold subscription :-)

    I downloaded last night, but each time I tried to play the connection got lost.

    Fingers crossed it's more stable tonight.

    Lucky lucky barstards.
    I only have a notebook at home so i'm going to have to wait untill the 360 release.

    Anyway, dose it play well when it is working?
    I mean, is there any difference between the board game and computer game other than graphics?
    Is the Beta turn based or realtime?

    The beta is turned based. As I said it's been a long time since I played the board game, but it felt the same. And it does play well.

    Although I haven't been able to play yet, I don't think I'll be able to say much anyway due to the NDA.

    If I can figure out a way to communicate through groups of punctuation though, I'll try.

    I've never had to adhere to one before. What if masked gunmen burst through my window?

    Excellent!
    Its good to know even if I can't play for how ever many months.
    This will need an organised game thread when it is released.
