Ok, a little over dramatic but I liked the title and the associated image. Three games are scheduled for release on 30th March 2007. (yes I know the Ides of March is the 15th, read the first sentence!)
What are those three games? Bioshock, Crysis, and Timeshift. Just like Caeser, one, maybe two will be assassinated. (Again over dramatic but that’s the kinda mood I’m in!). Assuming that they are actually released on time which would you buy? This would probably a good poll but since I have already done the most anticipated game it’s a little repetitive.
It does seem odd, don’t you think, that they schedule their games for release at the same time? If I was the TimeShift guys I would be working my employees to death to get it out a few weeks before the other two. It’s certainly behind in the promotion stakes but at least it released a Demo, previewed here on PlanetPhillip.
The prices are all very similar too; Bioshock – £29.99, Crysis – £26.99 and TimeShift – £24.99.
For me it doesn’t actually matter when they are released because I normally wait a few months to buy the games anyway, simply to let the patches be released and the price to drop. What about you?
