Volcanic Ash Hits The Games Industry Too

Despite the gaming industry going ever more digital, the volcanic ash clouds have managed to cause quite a bit of trouble to those industry. Not only are we hearing that game shipments have come to a halt in certain regions, but also game preview events have had to be pushed back as developers are stranded in Europe.

Quote from GamePro:

"Many flights are still delayed until later this week and beyond. The travel complications left our features editor Patrick Shaw here instead of in Europe for a super-secret game reveal; and now I'm told that Polish developer People Can Fly (ironic much?) is stranded in Europe so they're pushing back a Bulletstorm preview event that was scheduled for this Friday. Bummer.

The silver lining, though, is that we can all blame the dead period between the Game Developers Conference and E3 on the volcano this year".
