On Oct. 7th...
My wallet is going to melt.
Max Power  +   2699d ago
was just thinking that same thing, its so stacked with high expecting games, but i think LBP is tops on my list for that day.
Overr8ed  +   2699d ago
Fallout vs LBP... hmmm i dont know much about Fallout in general so am going with LBP... Resistance in Nov 4th? Killzone early 09... no God of War this early, most likely later.

I can't wait for God of War 3... That was a cruel trick leaving us on a cliffhanger like that. Although it's pretty sick that we get to see a next gen God of War game. It's one of the most groundbreaking action games ever and definitely one of my favorite video game series.

When 2008 is done it will be a better year for games than 2007. The list is gonna change and somethings maybe pushed forward for Sony and we know nothing about Nintendo.

Did I see God of War listed for a March release. Is it part 3 or a port of the PSP game for the PS2.
fusionboxer  +   2699d ago
As a former employee
I can tell you that these lists have very little weight behind them. An example would be that Unreal Tournament 3 was still up for pre orders on the 360 a day before Unreal Tournament released on the ps3.

Haze was also listed as multi platform and on both pre order lists for a pretty long time.

Basically take gamestop release dates that list games more then two months off as rumors. You know...just so you don't get your hopes up.

Lots of multiplatform games to be had on the xbox 360 I see, All I can say is Ghostbusters better look and preform better on the Ps3 or I'll get it on the xbox 360 too. I want sixaxis support for it, though.

October is going to kill.
Omegasyde  +   2699d ago
I thought Skate 2 was definitely going to be coming out this year. Knowing EA, more than likely.

I don't think guitarhero on tour will sell alot, since the people whom already are interested in "band" games have Rockband already. Let alone where are you going to store 2 sets of electonic instruments?

List is also missing tekken 6 + Socom Confrontation (w/ headset).

Actually Guitar Hero World Tour will most definately sell well. They will have the full bundle(all instruments) the guitar bundle with just the guitar and then just the game seperate. There are tons of loyal Guitar Hero fans. This can be seen by the site known as Scorehero which is a Guitar Hero dedicated site with more than half a million users. Plus many people who started on Guitar Hero and like the challenge of it for playing the hard solo guitars will choose GH over RB simply because GH is much much more difficult.
Omegasyde  +   2699d ago
umm aren't true "loyalist"

tied to Harmonix? Creators of the whole Guitar/video games concept and father of Guitar Hero 2 and 3? Not to be prude but you see my point?

I have RB and Guitar Hero 3. Gh3 has better stock music, but the $$$ they charge for DLC is BS. Sure you get a free track every once in a while, but they are also not going to work with the next guitar hero.

The Brand name can only get you so far.
katana523  +   2698d ago
yeah where is socom?
thats a good question i wonder why they dont have it... but i have to agree with the other guy guitar hero is better than rockband. sure rockband has loads of dlc but im not gonna buy all that or even close...also the free gh3 songs are awesome...and who cares that they arent gonna work with world tour? maybe if i want to play them ill just pop in my gh3 disc. rockband i hate the guitar except for the ones up close to the body of the guitar. i hate the strummer for it too i like to hear the click as conformation that i did strum that note. the drums are okay but there was some registering issues and the drums for gh world tour look amazing. the mic i dont give a crap about...and the music creater looks the song selection on guitar hero games not really on rockband...but overal both are quality games and pick what ever floats your boat.

Why is this news every time it comes around.... you can go in to any game store and ask to see their preorder list, its not secret and theres nothing newsworthy about it, try it, go to game stop and ask to see their preorder list, youll get the full version of this...
Omegasyde  +   2699d ago
You are right, but for the wrong reasons, being that their release list is ALWAYS subject to change. Nothing is set in stone especially for First party titles in which many might surprisingly appear after E3 for q4.

*prays for Jetmotto 4*
morganfell  +   2699d ago
Exactly. There is always a notebook laying on the counter with titles broken down by platform.
CaptainHowdy  +   2699d ago
there's like 40 games between september and december...and i have 2 buy them all....what a good problem to have...this year will be awesome.
EastCoastSB  +   2699d ago
LBP and Fallout 3 on the same day? Fvck me.
UnSelf  +   2699d ago
are u serious lol? wow whats Is to do massah?
Dark General  +   2699d ago
I noticed
When i first read that i said "...How do they expect me to choose between those two". Seriously this sounds like a job for iny miny miney mo.
Omegasyde  +   2699d ago
Don't be surprised if Socom comes out that day as well.

I could of sworn LBP was coming out in september/august too.
Howlie  +   2699d ago
are you freakin serious
OMG same thing i was just thinking, i am not going to have any life or see the light of day for weeks. I was originally looking for LBP and about had a Big O when I seen Fallout3 on same day.

Just checked out ship date for both on and Fallout 3 is scheduled for Oct. 7 just as mentioned....but LBP isn't scheduled for ship till Oct. 31

The dates will probably change but still. Plus, both are types that can can be played for months after release, not like a regular game that can be finished in 10 hours then you're done with it.

But it's still far away so we'll see how it turns out.
badz149  +   2699d ago
infamous and GoW3 on the exact same date?? and just a week after KZ2?? that 2 weeks will be crazy!!
jcfilth  +   2699d ago
I think..
they should delay those games at least 3 weeks one from the other just to enjoy all of them.
Hagaf22  +   2699d ago
there is nothing factual about this list, this is a gathering of collected information and guesstimates, infamous and gow wont be on the same day...
jcfilth  +   2699d ago
will it sell good on PS3 releasing one day before Resistance2?
that should be interesting. I'll give it a rent anyway. Resistanse2 sure buy and if I like Bioshock I'll buy it too! :) good year for gaming!! and I mean PS3 gamig ;)
Hagaf22  +   2699d ago
they are both buyers for me, bioshock just might have to wait a while lol...
NiraTum  +   2699d ago
GOW3 is coming in my birtday hell yeah!!!!!!!!!11
Aclay  +   2699d ago
I have known the dates for those games for a long time. All you have to do is go to Gamestops website and look for games Coming Soon and you can see release dates for all of the games that were on that same exact list.

I think that Bioshock's sales on the PS3 will be affected severely because Resistance 2 is coming out the next day after Bioshock and I'm buying Resistance 2 first, hands down.... plus, I don't think that I would ever buy 2 FPS games back to back unless they were both PS3 exclusive shooters... I'll probably pick up Bioshock in December after I've given Resistance 2 a test drive.
Aqua  +   2699d ago
List is good

Howlie  +   2699d ago

iGrenade  +   2699d ago
List is godly. This year is going to be kickass no doubt.
doG_beLIEfs  +   2699d ago
Nothing to see here
Gamestop has been printing out release lists for upcoming games since the Funcoland days. All you have to do is to ask for an updated release list printout. You can request 1 particular system, or every system. These dates are the best guesses that GSE has along with any confirmed dates that they have received. I used to have 3-ring binders with weekly updated release lists for games and for the bigger releases hi-lighted by system when I ran a district of stores. My stores consistantly had some of the highest reservation %'s quarter after quarter.

If you want a list, ask for one and they will print one out for you.


If you want to know how many copies of a title your local GS is getting, get to know the people there and they will look up incoming distros. Typically they have a couple of weeks worth and for bigger releases they will have allocations up to a month in advance. That way you will know if you need to reserve a copy to make sure you get one. This is especially helpfull for smaller releases. Quite often, if a particular GS does NOT have any reservations for some of the more obscure titles...they will not recieve ANY copies of the game right away and sometimes never.

For most games GS gets double the reservations that the store has. So sometimes it IS a good idea to reserve your copy.

I hope this information helps.

Melee Crazy  +   2698d ago
Soul Calibur 4 on 7/21???
I saw 7/21 for SC 4. Is Gamestop releasing the game early for pre-order customers or what??
