Defender crashes into next year

Missile command was better

Midway's modern day update to Defender will not appear until March 15th, the publisher has confirmed this morning. Despite vague assurances that the PS2 version would appear as planned today, December 6th, a bit of prodding later the publisher conceded that not only would it miss 2002, it will miss the previously set date for the Xbox and Cube releases, February 14th.

With all three console versions of the game now due out on March 15th, there's plenty of time to consider a purchase. And may we humbly suggest that you consider Kristan's thoughts on the matter before you pledge any Euros...

The GBA version is still due out today.
