I work at EB Games and so far the "emergence" day is set at November 12th in our store

HyperBear6413d ago

What EB Games do you work at? cause the one i work at it says Nov.8 launch, cause we get it one day after the american launch.

eques judicii6412d ago

its release date is the 7th, but our new marketing says nov 12th

HyperBear6413d ago

but what is better for HD Gaming on my 360. Component cables, or a VGA cable. Im thinking VGA, cause it displays everything to the fullist of it abilities. Buit if someone could answer that for me, that'd be great.

eques judicii6413d ago

For gaming component actually works better because the colors are brighter while vga tends to be a bit washed out (due to the fact that most tvs don't filter vga but will color filter component) but now that the 1080p patch is coming out... you'll probably want to watch movies with vga (resolution upscaling) and play games with component.. unless the colors are improved over vga by the patch or you can adjust your tv :-)

I plan on picking up the vga when the patch comes out... but this is just my opinion

Steve5196413d ago

I really hope this is true, I want this game

PS360PCROCKS6413d ago

Ok this is not true this guy for tiger direct is a moron, it's probably a pre-order and this guy is a moron and if it is true, this guy is lucky...not to mention um this XBLPODCAST guy's voice is creepy

Steve5196412d ago

which one the first or second one?

PS360PCROCKS6412d ago

first guy not the steve guy, yeah the first guy, he sounds like a child molestor

Steve5196412d ago

wow i couldn't disagree more, rusty has a great radio voice, maybe he just had his setup all wrong when he recorded.

And I'm the steve guy btw

PS360PCROCKS6411d ago

Oh no wonder you asked than...I still say his voice is weird, but whatever and BTW I knew this was a pre-order what a moronic employee

Switch and PS5 owners are gonna love this.

Stuart575691d ago

Every article, console fanboy trite, all these years later. Let me explain it AGAIN, in simple terms for the fanboys. Sentient human gamers do have their preferred platform, however they will buy and own multiple platforms so they can enjoy the games they want to enjoy. I own and have owned multiple platforms, Sony, Nintendo, Microsoft and now Valve, simply to enjoy a wide range of games across a broad spectrum of platforms. It's great. You don't have to pick a 'team' and cheer them on through thick and thin, dissing the other 'team'. And for you 'VenomUK' to state 'Switch and PS5 owners are gonna love this', proves that you're a bit behind. Learn, enjoy, live, develop, trust and coexist if you can, life is better that way.

Blad3runner0091d ago

Well said.
This is why i never understand fanboying over hardware. This is not like a sports team, its just hardware. Why some people have this mentality to pick a side and stick with it and refuse to look at other platforms, therefore depriving themselves of games that are only available on those platforms. They are suppose to be gamers after all?

FinalFantasyFanatic91d ago

It's practically guaranteed to come to PC as well, if that's the case, I might pick it up after it gets a discount or two.

Thank goodness for pro gamer companies like Microsoft.... It's about time we unified platforms where now only corporate suits benefit! Pro gamers all the way. Thanks Microsoft!
