Day of Days Update ID

It has been exactly three months since the first rumor that EA Replay for the PSP was in the works... and now today is ship day. To further confirm this, Electronic Arts has finally updated their Press Site with the proper date -- today!

Depending on how quickly the game rearches stores, it should be available all over the United States either Wednesday or Thursday. This seems like a small step, but it is very big news for Wing Commander fans -- for the first time in three years, you can walk into a store and buy a game with 'Wing Commander' on the box. For the first time in eight years, a new Wing Commander game is available that was developed in-house by Electronic Arts. Make no mistake, this is progress.

We are incredibly excited about this, and believe that many of you are too -- so to tide you over for the next twenty four hours, please enjoy this large collection of odds and ends about the original SNES Wing Commander and Secret Missions releases.

Update: EA has issued a press release confirming that Replay is shipping today!
