iPad gaming globally delayed

Still US-only

Apple has pushed the international release of iPad back a month to the end of May, leaving eager gamers to wait a few more weeks to experience high-definition portable gaming.

The California-based computer company made the announcement today, citing unexpected demand for iPad in the US as draining inventory for the originally planned late April global launch.

Instead, the international debut is being pushed back to late May in order for enough units to be manufactured to meet expected demand. It isn't clear if both wi-fi and 3G iPad models will be available for the global launch.

While disappointing, the extra time will enable game developers to update existing iPad titles for better performance ahead of the May launch.
