March 1st - holy crap, looks like it is THE game launch day

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
Was checking out up and coming games for the 360 and it looks like March 1st is going to be a killer day. Here is a list of games shipping that day according to EB:

2 days to vegas
Alone in the dark
Battlefield: bad company
Dance dance revolution
Dog tag
Frontlines: fuel of war
Golden axe
GTR
Guitar hero II
Haze
Huxley
Indiane jones
Metronome
Mobile ops: the one year war
Possession
Project offset

CRIPES all on one day. The checkbook is going to be hurting. Plus there are a few out right before the 1st and right after. Guess they want to flood the market with games. Cool deal, can't wait to try some of these!!!!

I would imagine 1 or 2 of those might actually come out that day. The rest you can forget about. Placeholder dates.

I bet 2 of those get released that day and some of the rest won't even see 2007 releases.

Edit: Yeah what he said. lol

I guess I haven' t been keeping up with things as much as I usually do, because I haven't heard of half of those games!

I'm definitely getting Guitar Hero 2 and probably Battlefield: Bad Company (I don't expect this one to come out March 1, because hardly any info has been released).

Where the hell is Asassins Creed. They need to hurry up with it.

lol @ Project Offset on that list. That isn't coming out until 2008 at the earliest. It isn't even a game yet, just an engine/tech demo.

I will be very surprised if Indiana Jones makes it out this year as well.

None of those games interest me. The ones I'm really waiting for include:

1) Mass Effect
2) Bioshock
3) Half-Life 2

That is going to rock

No way all those are coming out at the same time. Maybe 2, possibly (hopefully) 3. Max.

It's too good to be true.

Yeah, that pumped me up too.

There is another one coming out a few days later called two worlds. Its suppose to be this incredible RPG. It looked really promising.

Guitar Hero II is the only definate purchase for me on that last.

Fuzion Frenzy 2
Crackdown
NCAA March Madness
NBA Street Homecourt
Forza 2
and Mass Effect are the games I'm really waiting for.

huxley!
post #15 of 36
virtua tennis 3 comes out 3/20. that was the deal maker for the 360 for me.
post #16 of 36
Stunned they still list 2 Days to Vegas. Can't remember where I read it, but it was announced by a dev that has a bad rep for Vaporware.
post #17 of 36
EB/Gamestop are absurdly liberal when estimating release dates so they can sell preorders to inflate their revenue reports. There is no reason to expect that any of those games will be released on that date, some of the games don't even have publishing contracts yet and we may never see them released at all.
post #18 of 36
EGM has alone in the dark coming out in early 08, and huxley in late 07-early 08'

I'd say at the most 3 of those games get released then. Most on that list will be in the late summer to early winter of next year.

Honestly, the rest of those aren't on my radar, but a couple of them I've never even heard of. They might be of some interest to me once I hear what they are. I'm mostly a sports game and racing enthusiast.

Thanks for bringing that list to the fore... it's a big release day in terms of shear number and variety alone!

Those are all just placeholder dates for games that might come out in march but in fact have no set date yet. Some of those games might come out in early march, some of them later in the month, and others will be pushed back to later months.

Awesome, I forgot about that one! I still play Virtua Tennis 2K2 on my Dreamcast sometimes.
post #22 of 36
GTR?

If only the 360 supported the G25...

Oh, well, the PC version will continue to do.

huxley!!!
post #24 of 36
Golden Axe nice...



when will they have streets of Rage
post #25 of 36
its just a filler date, stores and sites put that up there just like they do with november when there is no set release date. March 1, is the default date for a summer release.

Pushed back along with BIA for GRAW II.

EDIT: Still should be a good week though. Gamespot has the following listed for the week of 4 March and I think they may all make it.
GRAW 2
Def Jam : Icon
Major League 2K7
Medal of Honor: Airborne
And Rayman Raving Rabbits... well one I am not interested in.

The next week is Two Worlds which I am VERY interested in.

April 1 they have
Shadowrun (not sure if it will make it)
Mass Effect
Too Human
Forza 2

Is Huxley are sure thing for March? Cus that would be sweet.
post #29 of 36
No. Again, those listings are just placeholders so EB/Gamestop sell preorders, they mean nothing more than that. Huxely doesn't even have a release date yet.
post #30 of 36
Latest EGM has Huxley projected to be released late 07' early 08'.

I wouldnt be getting too excited for it just yet.
