Mass Effect 2 has been confirmed to be released in January 2010. Boy, I wish Christmas was in March. That way we could all buy this years holiday titles before the holiday actually happens.
Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind the delay. I would much rather have these games polished and on sale when their good and ready to be. I just find it humorous that we’re getting this smack of games that we’re originally planned for the 2009 holiday season in early 2010. Games delayed into early 2010 include Splinter Cell: Conviction, Red Steel 2, Ghost Recon, Bioshock 2, Bayonetta, and Assassin’s Creed 2 is being delayed for the PC only.
The whole concept of the holiday release cycle just isn’t applicable anymore for video games. Movies for the most part ignore any particular day for release and they do just fine. The video game industry has matured to the point were we need to get past the Toys-R-Us style Christmas extravaganza.
Hopefully I get some gift cards to Best Buy for Christmas.
Keep on gaming people!
