More troubles for Microsoft Game Room?

Is the Microsoft Game Room in trouble? The service / feature was released to an enormous amount of technical hiccups last month and has continued to struggle since. In recent “unofficial” statements, both European and North American Xbox representatives (Dan Maher and Major Nelson), have stated that the next batch(es) of content are “delayed until further notice”. Both encourage gamers to “stay tuned” for more information from Microsoft regarding future releases.

It is really sad to see such a big initiative for Microsoft hit with such technical issues. I was very sceptical about the Game Room concept, but found myself getting a lot of enjoyment out of what little bit of it that I have been able to play with. I could see myself fully falling into the initiative if and when they get all of the speed bumps ironed out.

Hopefully we won't have to wait much longer to get the next batch of games / content for the service... by E3 maybe?
