Once Battlefield 3 hits in October it's game over. then on top of that you got Uncharted 3.

But it's no reason to push Skyrim back cause Skyrim can hold it's own, only push it back if it's not finished with quality as we don't need a rush job.

SR3 if it is any where near GTA4 quality it will have great sales over a long period of time so pushing it back won't change anything.

I don't agree.

Battlefield: Shooter
Uncharted: Action
Skyrim: RPG
Saints Row: Sandbox

I don't think they'll stop each other from selling. Let's also not forget that people will pick these games up themselves, but the whole point of releasing in November is to encourage people to buy as Xmas gifts.

Besides, Pachter has rarely predicted anything with any great accuracy, so I'll stay optimistic.

@tablav

While the genres are very different, and they won't be competing upon any large scale, there will be many individuals who will be making the hard choice of what to wait on.

Plus I kind of like the sound of Skyrim being given more time for bug fixing. I bloody-well want that game but find myself saddened each time a Bethesda game is released with the usual level of bugs out the ass.

Heck, the Unofficial Oblivion Patch, made by the community, managed to fix another 1800 bugs left behind after Bethesda stopped patching it.

I guess you forgot about Skyrim and Arkham City. To be honest I'm not buying either Battlefield 3 or Uncharted 3, they just don't appeal to me.

BeOneWithTheGun1771d ago

I will be soooooooooo pissed if skyrim gets delayed. It is hands down my most anticipated game ever.

Tr10wn1764d ago

I want Skyrim this year the competition is pretty awesome for GOTY GoW3, Uncharted, BF3, L.A. Noire Batman:AC, AC:Revelation and Skyrim.

But everyone knows that Assassin's Creed and CoD come out every November. Bethesda knew about Uncharted as well. Battlefield and Halo may have been surprises but they're FPS. Skyrim will not move!

Bleucrunch1772d ago

People who are having to make the difficult choice would logically choose skyrim or Saints Row because of the fact that it has a loooong shelf life in game play. These aren't games that you will beat in 6 hours no no nooooo these games will take time and with Skyrim WILL consume My LIFE! LOL

Prcko1772d ago (Edited 1772d ago )

gonna buy uncharted anyway,so delayed or not i don't care,gonna rent skyrim

thekiddfran1772d ago

Rent skyrim? You are going to need alot of money to rent it so.

Oldsnake0071772d ago

lol renting Skyrim. sry but that is the most retarted statement I have read on this site.

Jack-Dangerously1771d ago

It's "RETARDED" bub. It took around 20 hours to beat the main quest in Obvlivion. He didn't say "I'm gonna rent it and platinum it!"

I'm so sick of all of the jerks on here. If you can't speak respectfully and maturely then you should not be on this site.

ViserysTargaryen1771d ago

You can Gamefly it and keep it for the entire month.

kaveti66161771d ago

Jack, do you think you're being any more respectful?

Maybe if you thought about it, you'd come to the conclusion that renting Skyrim is really a bad idea. The main quest may take 20 hours to beat, but Bethesda's RPGs are not just about completing the main quest. With any good RPG, the strength of the game lies in branching sidequests.

If someone says they don't like Bethesda's RPGs and then says that they'll just rent the game, you have to wonder why they don't like it. Maybe if they invested a little more time in exploring the world they'd understand the point of the RPG. The main quest is like a red herring. It's important in getting the player to move forward, but the world and all the quests within it take a lot longer to develop than the main quest. Bethesda wants the players to explore that world.

Renting an RPG as vast and deep as Bethesda's games is truly a retarded idea. And no one has to pay any respect to the moron that says he's going to rent Skyrim.

ZombieAssassin1772d ago

Yea I gotta agree with these guys renting skyrim is not the best move unless you have a Gamepass or something like that to where you can have it out for as long as you want for a flat fee...even then you'd prolly be better off buying it.

Gazman1772d ago

you may as well buy skyrim because after renting it untill you finish it you will of most likely spent enough money to buy it

Merivigian1772d ago

Yea, a reported 300 hours. Even if you played nonstop without sleeping, eating, stopping, etc. You would spend 12.5 days on it. There's no way a person could rent a game like Skyrim.

Jocosta1772d ago

Your going to buy UC3 but rent Skyrim? Ok then.

nycredude1772d ago

Have you guys never heard of gamefly? You rent a game, keep it for as long as you want. If you want to keep it just tell them and they send you the box and manual.

Bleucrunch1772d ago

Of course we heard of it but its senseless to rent a game that have hundreds of hours of content with DLC coming to it in the future. I have gamefly but I would never consider renting Skyrim...Renting Uncharted would seem the more logical approach but I am buying that game as well...a game to rent would be something like COD since it comes out every single year with its regurgitations.

BeOneWithTheGun1771d ago

@streeks...Bro, you can gamefly it and then buy it from them for $10 bucks less than retail. You get the case and the booklet. Gamefly is the way to go.

I doubt Saints row 3 will be delayed since THQ is in a financial crisis and Saints row is their best money maker.

YodaCracker1772d ago (Edited 1772d ago )

That's sad if Saints Row is your best money-maker. Doesn't make you look good as a company, LOL.

kevnb1772d ago

Saints row is a big seller.

WANNAGETHIGH1772d ago

@YodaCracker...At lest saint row 2 had more fun factor than gta4.

tablav1772d ago

Saints Row is a highly respected game as it gives GTA fans what GTA took away...the fun factor. I love GTA 4, but SR2 was still a great game. Also, lots of people who want GTA 5 will likely pick this up as there's still no official announcement from Rockstar yet.
