Possibly obscure/pulled PS3 game?

by Onyxthecat Sun Aug 31, 2014 9:40 am

I've been looking for this title for a while and for some reason, it doesn't exist.

Combat Wings: The Great Battles of WWII

I can't find it anywhere and gamestop doesn't even list it on their site. Anyone have a copy or know where to get one?

are you sure it was released...or released in the US? Amazon has nothing and eBay shows nothing except PAL versions

It apparently got a EU, US, JP and AU release and was on Wii, Xbox 360, PC and PS3.

I don't know that I'd hold that gamefaqs entry to be gospel. Unless you can find a copy or an image of an actual US copy, I would doubt its status as something released in the US. The fact that there isn't one at all on eBay or Amazon and that basically nothing comes up mentioning the US release of the game when looking for reviews seems pretty telling. Gamefaqs also lists the Wii version as canceled, for what it is worth.

Hmm, yeah it seems it got a physical JP release and it was released in the US PSN store as Dogfight 1942.
