That's not true and you know it. At no time has ROL ever officailly said that any version of select would be out in any year. Allegedly someone at ROL is supposed to have guranteed that there would be at least one per year, but at no time has this ever been said officially. At no time have ROL, or anyone else, ever stated officially that select 4 would be out prior to christmas 2005. At various times PM has stated his hopes for when something will be released, and his hopes for what will be in it, but this has never been a formal guarantee. Indeed if you read the strict terms of the select agreement then they haven't broken them. The fact that things are delayed is sad but unavoidable. I'd rather everything was working, but delayed, than rushed and broken.

You, it would seem, want something now so that you can slate them for it not working. You, it would seem, want them to fail so that you can say 'I told you so'.
