Rocket Racing Delayed

We were really looking forwarded to playing this tonight, but it seems it was just too awesome for the PSN servers… lol.
Halfbrick regrets these unfortunate circumstances, however due to Rocket Racing having a current rating of 9500 on the Kevin Bacon Awesomeness Meter (also known as K-BAM), the PlayStation servers were not equipped to take on such a powerful game at this time.
The game is now expected to be launching in both the EU and US on March 11th for the price of $4.99. They had to compress the levels of awesome though : (
Rocket Racing Team leader Luke Muscat mentioned that the level of awesome was a risk, but one that was necessary for the quality of the game.
“Regular levels of awesome just weren’t cutting it. I have been having sporadic doses of awesome multiple times a day for years now, and frankly I am desensitized. As a result, I decided to tread a thin line somewhere near the very edge of maximum awesome, and death by awesome overdose.”
This press release made my night.
