Eh, no real surprise here. if it gets launched is year it won't be till the holiday season to get the biggest box sales possible. This is pretty much what I've been expecting. Probably will be getting Rift this weekend for something to do till Tera or SWTOR or whichever comes out first.

Agreed. Releasing at year-end makes the most sense because the profit-potential is largest with Christmas, Hannukah, all going on simultaneously.

Sure, some so-called "holiday release games" can drop as early as October, to allow for a maximum shopping window -- but I'll be really surprised if SW:TOR drops any earlier that that.

Also, it gives them more time to make this game. I'm fine with delays as long as they deliver a quality product. Remember, quality is always better than quantity.

So, basically, no rushing please.

July is 4 mounts and some odd days till ME3. No way the game comes out in that time period. That puts in into competition with ME3. It won't eat many potential ME3 buyers but it will eat some. I'm thinking this game will be out in 2012.

@Yellowdancer I would be very surprised if ME3 isn't pushed back into 2012. ME2 used to be penciled in as a holidays release as well at one point if I remember correctly.

I would be very happy if ME3 were pushed back into 2012. Any sign that they're taking their time to do it right will come as a relief at this point.

@gildhur Sure, if by Christmas you mean Easter, and by 2011 you mean Stardate 44197.3

No shocker there, if it were they would have had a far larger showing at PAX than simply a new trailer. I'm still thinking if TOR shows up at all this year it will not be til November, but it wouldn't shock me to see 2012 show up before the game.

Meh... played it at PAX. When a short demo doesn't excite you, I don't believe there's much to look forward to.

110% WoW-in-space. If that's what you're looking for, you won't be disappointed, but I felt like I already played this game for years. While the Star Wars IP definitely adds a level of "cool" to it, I don't think it's gonna be enough to suck me in.

GW2, on the other hand, now that was freakin' exciting! Can't wait for that game. Stole the show IMO.

GW2 steals the show everywhere it goes. It is definitely the Next Big Thing™.

Did it look better than GW1 cause Guild Wars sucks IMO. I'm hoping GW2 is much better. I hope they allow you to use more than 8 skills this time around.

I think the whole charm of GW was the 8 skill system, the limitation led to some awesome builds (which you could experiment or search online for) and in general completely obliterated any diverse 'class' system other games had. But again IMO - although I advise to look at different aspects before using the word hate.

They allow you to use 10 skills now. The first 5 skills are decided by the weapons you're actively using and the second 5 you get to pick out of a list.

So there were people waiting hours to play GW2? If not, I'd say it didn't steal anything.

Well I guess it's not ready til it's ready but this game already seems like it's behind the MMO curve. How long is it gonna survive when you have games like GW2 in development?
