When is the game coming out?

At this point, it's too early to provide an estimate of the release date. As with all Blizzard games, we will take as much time as needed to ensure the game is as fun, balanced, and polished as possible.

Sorry - I was talking about BlackBerry OS 5.0. Not whatever game this is.

Think about it,

There are no devices out right now operating 5.0 officially. In order fro 5.0 to be release they must at least be supporting a device running it, my guess is when the Onyx comes out, it'll be rolled out to the rest of the devices.

If the 8330 can't handle it then the older BlackBerries won't get it either. Since the 8330 had addition memory then the others. (83xx,88xx,8100)

Just think about how far BlackBerries have come from then till now... And what else is coming.

If the 8330 has extra memory as somebody else mentioned then it may still get 5.0, but even if it doesn't you can hardly say they don't support their devices since it has already had a major upgrade from its release software to 4.5 last year.

They do have to balance the amount of time it would take to get new features running well on older hardware against the amount of customers it would benefit and from a business perspective, they do actually want people to upgrade to their new devices as well.

i agree but there are a lot of things on the 8330 that could be improved with an os upgrade and alot of companies and people out there still own the 8330 so it does make sense to at least offer an update even if it doesn't have all the bells and whistles that the newer models will have

While they may be able to improve things, the obvious issue would be with how much benefit it would be to rim to take the time to develop any kind of cut-down update for the steadily reducing market of older devices that have already had their major upgrade in 4.5 anyway.

There is no reason to keep guessing. Im sure the Forums will have it blasted all over when it's released. Until then, enjoy the one you're with =).

I might be missing something... but don't bring that type of hostility to this forum...

That Duke Nukem game was in the works from the mid-90's and never released (lol) I actually found that statement quite comical.

BUCKEYEsktrboi, any more posts like that and your days on this forum will be very short. Name calling and personal insults are not tolerated here.
