Report - Sony pulls Motorstorm Apocalypse release in New Zealand after Christchurch earthquake

Kotaku is reporting that Sony has pulled the release of Motorstorm: Apocalypse in New Zealand.

It comes following the earthquake earlier this week in Christchurch, which has killed 113 people so far.

Retailers have apparently begun telling consumers about the move, which has been made out of respect over what happened this week.

The site claims that Sony will revisit the matter when the matter is a lot less sensitive.

Motorstorm Apocalypse releases on March 18 in the UK for PlayStation 3.
