OK, never EVER consider a EB/Gamestop release date official. Any date that they give on games that don't have official release dates is just some random number they picked out of a hat to try and sucker people into pre-order the game. If you don't like them doing that, complain to EB/Gamestop about their misleading release date. And BTW, the 11/1 date they give on the page you linked to is made-up as well.

They post the date that they get from the distributor. They need to be as consistant as possible. You can count on the date they give because they are the ones who are going to sell it and that is the bottom line.

That's not funny. I should ban you for that.

Now did this game go gold last Monday or did they miss that mark also?


This is the game I REALLY am waiting for. http://tf2.sierra.com/ Notice the quote on the right side of the page.

1999!!! LMAO!!!!

If this game is delayed anylonger, gerbils will take up arms... oops too late.

Sorry - I used to use that 02/30 date when talking about DNF.

I am guessing it will be out at the end of November at the latest since that is the start of the holiday season.

Not always, for official dates yes, but if no date has been given or it's just a general quarter/month date (for example I think HL2 is now Q4 2004), then they'll just make up a date for their computer systems. They have a LOT of 1/1, 4/1, 7/1, and 11/1 dates in their system, since they put down the first day of a quarter when an exact date isn't given.
