Ripten's Chad Lakkis chimes in on the announcement of Solider of Fortune Payback.
"We got word a few days ago that Activision was announcing "Soldier of Fortune Payback" for the PS3, 360, and PC. Great news right? Of course!
So we download the trailer via the press release and fire it up like good little video game journalists when suddenly it hits us ... "why are they releasing a modern warfare-esque first person shooter this close to the release of COD4?" On top of that, "why did they wait until just a few weeks before the game's release to officially announce the game?"
"With all the negative publicity surrounding Manhunt 2 recently, it is possible Activision is waiting for a more appropriate moment to announce another gorefest."
