I would have made a news post on this if I knew how, of course I might not have permission to do that and that is fine with me :P

You know what.. I think I mentioned a long time ago about a good chance of July or later release :)

Either way its great news. Not the same month as my B-day.. however close enough. ( However Dead Rising 2 will be released on the same month but that is a bit off topic )
