Edge: Does the Holiday Crush Make Sense?

Edge writes: "Remember earlier this year, when Super Smash Bros., Mario Kart Wii, Grand Theft Auto IV, Metal Gear Solid 4, Wii Fit, Burnout Paradise, Devil May Cry 4 and a slew of other commercially successful games hit shelves? It almost seemed as if publishers were wising up, spreading out top-tier releases and opting not to clog the holiday retail channels with a potent concentration of desirable titles.

Here in November 2008 you can now officially scratch any previous notion that publishers have changed their holiday-crushing ways. We apologize for any insinuation otherwise."

Money has been few and far between but since I got some fun money today I bought Little Big Planet and even had enough left over for a 12-pack of beer. I couldn't get the update to download but after 2 beers I played the game for about an hour and a half anyways. I'm going to take my time with this game and I doubt I buy another game this year. I had money earlier in the year and if some of these games coming out now had been out before they could have got my money. It won't matter because these game companies are so big my little purcahse doesn't make any difference. I just wish there were good games released during the middle of the year.
