Via TXB: "The colorful series known as Rainbow Six has come a long way since its fifty-cal-dominating, low-def multiplayer days, with the apparent apogee arriving two years ago (already?) in the form of Montreal's ode to Sin City. Vegas was an instant hit both offline and online, but the Nevada-friendly FPS natives are ready for the next chapter in Rainbow Team's saga. More importantly, hardcore console FPS'ers are curious if Rainbow Six Vegas 2 can keep Infinity Ward's slick Call of Duty 4 from ruling the roost for another year. The wait is over, as Rainbow Six Vegas 2 will already have populated store shelves by the time you read this."
