Game site countdowns are annoying as hell. So perhaps it's karma that the one planned for Fuse, the latest game from Insomniac and EA, has backfired, with a "last-minute legal rights issue" preventing it from actually ticking over to a new trailer.

Instead, there's apology. You can read a full statement from Insomniac boss Ted Price on the game's website.

Seeing as the game is a sci-fi work of fiction, my guess would be the hold-up has something to do with the soundtrack. Dubstep artists have copyright...rights too, you know.
