You tiny brained retarded #$#^T%#$!!! I come home and EBworld STILL shows 10-14!!! WTF. When was it delayed LAST NIGHT??? This kind of crap pisses me off and makes me want to just . I was on my way money in hand and now they delay it for a month with no warning?? PC gaming is dying because the industry is killing it.
LOL, I was at the Gamestop counter last night with money in hand to prepay for Saints Row2 PC. Same exact deal, not out till mid Nov according to their computer. They said they would sell me the 360 or PS3 version, not interested one bit.

Lost sale till, at best, bargain bin now. I'll be up to my neck in games by mid Nov and have no cares about SR2. Or yeah, time.

There was an article on this in the past, can't find it right now but the jist of the article was that if they released them all at the same time, they are worried that a large % of the people would get the PC version, since it's typically better and looks nicer.. if they delay it they get more console sales with a higher price tag on the game and a certain % of people that just can't wait or have idle $$ and will buy both versions...
