    Default Dragon's Lair 3D for PS2 - YET?!?!

    Hey gang,

    Well, after nearly a TWO YEAR WAIT, the release date for DL3D for PS2 draws nigh. Supposedly, after numerous push-backs, it's supposed to be released July 15th. Yay. 'Bout friggin' time. Can anyone who runs/works in a game store confirm this, or is this release date yet another pipe dream like Xmas 2001, Thanksgiving 2002, first quarter 2003, etc.?

    That's why having multiple current-gen consoles comes in handy.

    Straight from my source at Encore: "Sony did not approve the PS2 version for U.S. distribution...we are doing a PAL PS2 version for Europe, though."

    Not that you're missing much; DL3D is weak sauce, a platformer with awkward play mechanics and unimpressive visuals (even when running at 1080i on the Xbox!).

    Hey zack, thanks much for the inside info.

    I know the game leaves a lot to be desired, I've read all the complaints and issues from the other platforms, but I am such a DL fan that I was gonna buy it anyway.
    I am not even capable of being impartial about it.

    Understand, I even played the hell out of the NES version which was horrible, the only thing tying it to the actual DL was Dirk.

    I'd get progressively giddy as 3do and Sega CD released increasingly more faithfull ports, I bought the DVD to play on my PS2, must have about 5 different versions on PC, Daphne emulation; the works.

    I'm really disappointed to hear that, but at leats its closure.

    Hmmm.. regarding Zach's reply (and to add some info which may further confirm it): Dragonstone Software approached me to do an interview with them about the PS2 "Special Edition" of Dragon's Lair 3D for The Laser. I emailed them some Q's three weeks ago, but haven't heard back from them. Perhaps, the SCEA rejection is the reason they haven't responded. Hopefully, Sony will change their minds. If not, the Xbox version is decent enough.

    Let me just take this opportunity to say that playing the original Arcade version of Dragons Lair (as well as v.1.1 and v.2.0) on the Xbox via DAPHNE is the MUTHAFUCKING BOMB!!!1 I absolutely love it. Playing it on a big screen tv with a nice pad in hand is Dragons Lair greateness. And it's the original, not some crappy DVD remake. If you know how to get this going, I highly recommend it.

    They've ported Daphne to XBOX?

    Whoa!

    This might actually be the straw that makes me buy one.
