This game is out next Tuesday and I'm debating if I should get it on release as I'm a big big fan of the show but most of the spin off games related to Southpark have been kind of disappointing to say the least.

I know the shows creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone have had a big input into the game and I know that they insisted that the game would only be made if it could faithfully represent the show's unique 2D look, which is based on the style of cutout animation.

Perhaps this could be a good game or perhaps it may be like the recently dreadful Family guy game that just got recently released (I hope not)

anyway what do you all think anyone here getting it?

Isn't it delayed because of THQ going under and Ubisoft picking up the rights to the game?

Still really looking forward to it though, love that Matt & Trey have had so much input and the trailers have made me laugh, I think Obsidian have it in them to make this something really fun.

The only release info tied to this is "Q1 2013". That's from the press store. Nothing else has been said.

I think the chances of it being as terrible as the Family Guy game are slim. Then again, the premise isn't funny (their parodies never are) and the games it is apparently emulating aren't all that enjoyable to me, so I guess it could be equally unenjoyable in a way of its own.

.
It is delayed because SPDS claim that they own the rights to the game so it should never have been in the THQ auction, meaning Ubisoft buying the rights was worthless.

Personally I hope SPDS win the case.

If THQ didn't get their permission to pass on the property to another distributor than SPS are right for trying to block that move going ahead.

Wonder where this game will eventually land.

I was going by the date on the trailer March 5th which is this tuesday

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bkZHv-9e2ro

I wasn't aware of all this business regarding THQ and SPS
I'm sad to hear it's going to be delayed.

let's hope it dosn't get delayed to long and turn into another Duke Nukem Forever

It should be out April ish. SPS is not trying to kill it - does them no good - they are just trying to get a bigger cut. Summer is a dead zone and september is too crowded so someone will fold in the next month or so.

Looks amazing!

Hopefully the delay means a next gen version.

I hope so! This is the last current gen game I was looking forward too but don't have a current gen console anymore so would've missed out I love South Park and actually watching last night's new episode at the moment

At the end of the trailer it just shows the game cases for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. I'm doubting a next-gen version to be honest.

Game is now available to pre-purchase on Steam (release date of March 6th) for the low low price of 40

Waited for this game since Day 1 (a long time ago now), looks like i'll be waiting a further 11 months before it goes on a decent discount.

Or you can buy it on amazon or zavvi for 28. Game is a steamworks title so is redeemable on Steam.

Tie in games have a very long and crap history. I will hold out for a while on this one until some reviews and videos are up. Not to mention the potential for issues as this was originally a THQ game but of course they went under.

The creators of South Park have been working very closely with this game and Obsidian are good developers so I have faith.

I take it you never saw A Nightmare On Face Time (which is an obvious parody of The Shining).

Game won't have UPlay on PC, so that is a bonus.

Anyone know where i can pre-order a digital copy for cheap. Best I can find is 40. I know i can get a boxed version for about 27, but i'm sooo done with boxes for steam-locked games.

Not at the moment. Keep your eye on savygamer.com, though, he usually posts up offers... or HotUKDeals...
