Monopoly

Anyone have any info on when Monopoly will be released? I've heard some people say sometime in November, but someone else also said it won't be released until Dec. 31

It doesn't appear EA is in any hurry to get it released. How hard can Monopoly be to code? It's a game I'm watching for too, but won't pay more than $5 for it if it doesn't have both internet and wifi play support.

The original press release said November (one day to go). There haven't been any official announcements since then. If it's been delayed, which is very possible, EA hasn't said anything. I haven't seen anything about December 31st, but that date is normally a "place-holder" date - meaning that the date of release is unknown. I've really been looking forward to Monopoly, which is amazing since I've bought it six or seven times the past 15 years.

They made it way complex though. The screenshots show it in 3D

I hope you have the option of disabling the 3D if it adds time to the game. I hate having to sit (or stand) through animations. As ugly as the Palm version is I can knock out a game on my train ride with time to spare.

hope they took our words in consideration and work on the 2D and 3D things...maybe that's why they postponed the release date?
