Just checked this website, and it says "Coming in 2009."
So much for that Holiday 2008 estimate.
Actually though, game releases in the spring, after the holidays, aren't so bad. Sure, you have to wait longer... but you (or the folks buying gifts for you) can only afford so many games before the holidays anyway. When all these games come out at the same time, it's much more competitive.
I wanted to see more about their claim to include so many railroads, so I entered "map" in the search box, hoping to get a close-up view of the tiny map from the main page. But, the genius Microsoft search engine just loaded a Windows Live Map instead.
What I'm miffed about is that I was hoping to buy Auran Trainz Classics because it included M-7's on the Harlem Line. But it appears the company went under. Even though one news website said the Trainz line would not be affected, my attempts to visit Auran's website were unfruitful. Bummer.
If waiting for the new MSTS means we'll get all 3 Metro-North lines, I guess it'll be well worth the wait! If we can't get all 3, hopefully we'll at least get the Hudson and New Haven, as they are both part of longer lines. I wonder how much hard drive space this sucker's gonna chew up.
