Well, it does take time to make high quality games, so sometimes it just doesn't line up. 8 months is pretty bad, but it's better than just releasing crap to fill the void (Some would say N3 was crap, though I think trying to ripoff the Dynasty Warriors franchise wasn't that smart to begin with). It's like the guy says: [But] we're not going to let the date drive when a first party game comes out, because a bad first-party game coming out at the right time doesn't matter. I think most xbox owners will forgive them when Gears of War hits shelves.
