Cause of the fact that it's getting close to the holiday season and companies want to maximize their profits. ;)

They aren't gonna think about the customers, they'll be thinking about how much money they'll make in the first couple of months, it's business man.

I can't decide what to get gears of war 2 or guitar hero 4 either I think i'll probably get guitar hero 4 because I'm a bigger fan of that

The biggest games always come out nearer Xmas, its the busiest selling period of the year.
Me, Im gonna have to start saving for Rockband 2 and Guitar Hero 4.
Thats gonna be nearly 300 for 2 games, ridiculous prices, but I gotta get them.
The way I see it, if I get the games I want, I stay in rather than go out and waste the money on alcohol, which I end up pissing/puking up the wall.

Well that's a good philosophy.

I think I'm gonna buy GHIV and RB2 this holiday season, dunno what else, never been much of a Gears fan.

But the difference between CC and other games is that CC will be GOOD and will be worth the 1200MSP.

Get QoS at release, and continue playing COD4 until you get the money. Its an identical game just with old weapons......

My problem is saints row 2 and cod 5 are out around the same time and i was thinking of focus in more on getting high on an ingame leaderboard than on achievements but the question is do i focus on saints row 2 or cod 5?

The only 2 games that I'll buy for the rest of 2008 are Gears of War 2 and NHL 09. I'll just get the other ones for Christmas, Gamefly them, or buy them at a later date. GOW2 and NHL 09 are the only games that I'm dying to play and must have them the day they come out.

Really? I was kinda thinking the opposite. :D

Ouch, another damn year to burn a whole in my pocket. I thought last year was a good year, but damn, I have so much to get this time around!

And it's all about profit; they need to make money somehow and Xmas season is the perfect time.

There are other games I'm interested in, but these are my top priorities:
-------------------------------------
Mercenaries 2 - 8/31
Midnight Club: LA - 10/7
Rock Band 2 Bundle - 10/19
Fable 2 - (Too lazy to go back and check the release date, lol :D)
Guitar Hero: World Tour Bundle - 10/26
Tom Clancy EndWar - 11/4
Gears of War 2 - 11/7
Call of Duty: World At War - 11/11
-------------------------------------

COD 5, it is a shame that they are in a WWII setting again. I am looking for Gears of War 2.
