The all in one urban graffiti lifestyle simulator Marc Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure has had its release pushed back until February 2006. Atari has said the change of release date is to set the game apart from the crowded Christmas market.

"The release date has changed globally because we feel strongly that the beginning of 2006 offers a much better launch window for this innovative fresh franchise than the crowded Christmas period," read an Atari statement.

Ecko has reportedly poured seven years of blood, sweat and tears in to the game, which combines all elements of urban lifestyle such as graffiti tagging, stealth, and combat into one multi-disciplined game experience. For some early impressions on the game check out our preview.
