I don't shop at Walmart and anyone who simply can't wait for the game to come out on it's intended release date needs to find a supplemental hobbie and experience some seperation anxiety for ahwile. Games aren't that important. Like, if I wanted a kidney and was going to die and the only day I could get one was on like the 12th of the month but someone came to me and said I'll give you this kidney early. Yeah, I'd take it. It's a kidney afterall and I need it. A game, no. Just no. I'll wait.

Hey they are a big corporation. Forgive them for not understanding the importance of the title with you week advertising. No metal gear mountain dew = lame lol

it shows that good... no i mean GREAT games can get great sales without advertising. The only thing advertising does is increase hype which increases review scores. Exhibit A and B are GTA4 and Halo 3. "good" games at best but with great reviews! People just keep drinking the coolade

The problem is nobody will do anything to Walmart. I don't buy anything there but a lot of people do. Wal-mart would probably threaten Sony they won't sell their products if Sony holds anything back from them. So nothing to see here boys and girls.
