Lockout messes with game developers too
Since I know many of my hockey-starved chums have gotten their fix through video games, I figured I should link to a related article from today penned by Canadian Press sports editor Neil Davidson.
It seems the uncertainty with the upcoming season has wreaked some havok with game developers who have to release games in the near future without any clear idea what the revamped league will look like.
The unfortunate thing is that no developer is holding off on the release of their game to wait for the CBA and rule changes announcement. Waiting to get the game right would earn many fans' dollars I'm sure, and who's even to say that gamers need their games right before season's start. Interest in the league likely peaks much later than September, and a near-Christmas release could be a boost of its own.
