Dead or Alive 4 misses Christmas

Don't expect a copy of Dead or Alive 4 in your stocking this Christmas as the Xbox 360 beat-'em-up won't be out until January next year.

While a UK release wasn't previously confirmed, DOA4 was expected to be a key part of Xbox 360's 2 December launch. But now, with the US release delayed, it looks like you'll have to wait till 13 January to see Hitomi, Tina and a knock seven shades out of each other.

Dead or Alive 4 will be out for Xbox 360 in January 2006
