  6. JAMES says:

    i think you could do a better game, rules are not real, moves are not real, the ingeneer who make this game must be without work.

  7. Antonio says:

    Hola y para Mexico Lindo y Querido Cuando llega en PS3 Please !!!!!!

    • milla says:

      Hi Antonio. I don’t speak Spanish and the translator is having trouble with your post. Are you wanting to get Rugby Challenge for PS3? You can do so from Amazon.

  8. J-RO says:

    Thank you sooooo much!!!!!!

  9. Adam says:

    This is fantastic news! I live in Canada and I have been dying to play.

    James, could your post be any more irrelevant? This is exciting news for those of us in North America who have not had a chance to even try the game. Post your criticisms of the game in the appropriate forum, not in response to an announcement that is truly good news for many of us.

    i have a very important question please answer it as fast as you can.
    if i buy rugby challenge in japan, can i change the idiom?

    • milla says:

      I’m afraid I don’t understand the question. Only the commentary contains idiomatic content, and that can’t be changed. The languages of all text content can be changed, between English, French, Italian, and Spanish.

  11. fausto says:

    i mean, i buy rugby challenge in japan it sopoust to be in japanes, can i change japanese to english?

  12. fausto says:

    can i change the idiom?

  13. Zack says:

    you mean the language not the idiom

  14. fausto says:

    yes the menus and all that

    • milla says:

      As I said in my previous response to you, the languages of all text content can be changed, between English, French, Italian, and Spanish.

  15. fausto says:

    thank you

  16. hiruko says:

    I’ve been playing non-stop for two weeks now, and I’m loving it. Just want to thank you for making the game AND having it cross the vast seas to land on the shores of North America!

  17. SAMOARUGBY says:

    Great game, hopefully it’s one of many more to come. Im just wondering if this will be a yearly project or just for worldcup time, and will rugby challenge ever secure the other unlicensed teams?

  18. Sergio says:

    The game is really good but if i have to make a list of bugs and glitches i think y would have a long one , why can´t i tackle the other when he’s on the in-goal zone, other important thing is that i put almost 5 forwards on the rucks but Australia puts 2 and they always win the ball , such a negative thing, i’d reccomend to fix them.

  19. Sergio says:

    Oh , antoher thing , why is Pocock running faster than my winger or fullback? haha , you should start fixing those things

  20. corey says:

    I just had the rugby challenge through Amazon Canada delivered. I noticed that it is labelled a region 2 game.

    The question is since Canada is a region 1 area and the game is labelled region 2 will the game still be able to download patches to fix bugs? I have heard that downloaded patches will only go the the region the game is meant for. Thus leaving us in Canada out of luck for fixes

  21. brendan says:

    When will Xbox360 version be available in Japan???

  22. mark says:

    no plays from set piece? the game that was out 5 years ago was better. even childrens rugby has some preset plays. Very disappointing. and these guys are supposed to know rugby? some things are good- scrumming is fun.

    hopefully they can do some kind of update cause they should look at the old game for inspiration.
