TR: Legend (PSP) pulling an Angel of Darkness?
I'm still waiting to read some opinions of Tomb Raider: Legend for PSP, but it's been pushed back again and again. First, it was to have a concurrent release with the other versions. Then it was going to be a month later, in early May. Then it was mid-May. Then it was early June. Now it's 20th of June.

I'm reminded of the delays that Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness endured. When it was finally pushed out the door, it was clearly unpolished in most areas and even unfinished in others. Is the PSP version of Legend headed for a similar fate?

I don't mean that it will be unfinished, since it is a handheld clone of the console versions. Rather, I fear it will be unpolished and, worse still, buggy.

And every day that the PSP version is delayed makes its $40 price tag look too high. The PlayStation 2 and Xbox versions have already dropped to $35. The PC version is at $40. If they're lucky, the PSP version will still look like a steal next to the $60 price the Xbox 360 version is still commanding.

Which is all to say, with every delay my interest wanes and my hopes diminish.

Oh please, you're a sick man. You'd buy whatever new video game they called Tomb Raider even if it was branded Tomb Raider: Kart Racing.

I know you always wanted to see a bear, a tiger, and random goons driving go-karts along with Lara.
