Re: the sales giant
i seriously doubt releases are being pushed because of any “fear” of MW2.. for starters, MW2 is a specific genre, and will mostly appeal to those who currently play cod4 and w@w type online FPS games, while Bioshock 2, abeit a FPS, is a totally different animal, and there would be no real fear of it having to compete with MW2 based on the style of gameplay and the people. hell even MAG wouldnt have to worry too much, as it is a larger more different play style than MW2.
as Tom said, any of these games could release now, or during the xmas rush and sell, its so funny to see people act like MW2 is gonna be the “be-all-end-all” game…
Actually, According to Joystiq, MOST of the games pushed back to early 2010 are directly because of MW2. I'm NOT gonna post all the links (as they are all individual news stories) but here's one for example
If you stay on joystiq. And keep clicking “Older Entries” you'll see a load of these stories…This one (as do the others) has a quote from the activision spokesperson directly stating they do not want to compete with MW2's release.
