okay i don't know about the others, but bioshock is on hold because the developers weren't happy sending the game out until they were sure about it.
im actually very happy they did this because it means they're devoted into making it a good game, rather than just milking it for money.
My thoughts exactly, on that second line.
@gr8jrfan – are you some kind of game developer with inside information that would warrant such an opinion? Quite a few of those games were slated for 2010 from the start. MAG certainly needs some work (although it is shaping up to be a great game), Bioshock 2 will most likely blow MW2 right out of the water, Max Payne 3 was always slated for 2010, and Lost Planet 2 will be out December '09. Just because one developer admitted they fear the competition of MW2 does not mean they all think that. Frankly, it was stupid of them to admit that. It says “our game is no where near as good as MW2”. If they don't have confidence that their game is good enough to compete, then why are they even bothering to make it? Frankly, any game thats pushing past the holiday season is missing a great opportunity to make sales, regardless of the competition. The only reason any of them should do that is if the game is simply not ready. Plus, game delays is nothing new to this industry. It happens constantly, and there isn't any more now than there were in the past several years.
