So what's on everyone's games wish list for the rest of 2008? I rooting for GME below 40 again, because the line up looks solid, and if everyone's wish list is as long as mine/hubby's then GME may just well post another round of really good 3Q-4Q08 sales.
I put question marks around the maybes.
Aug. Too Human?
Sept. Rock Band 2
Oct. Fallout 3, Fable 2, C&C:Red Alert 3?
Nov. Gears of War 2, COD:World at War, Prince of Persia
That's about $500 minimum for 4 mos, not counting game gifts I'll buy for other people and used games we might purchase.
Wife wants Wii Fit. Sold out in the nearby Gamestop store, last time I checked.
Article published today by Chris Morris: A Wii Bit Short On Supplies
"The shortages haven't stopped Nintendo from becoming the best-selling console in the U.S and the world" ... "demand for the device [Wii] in the U.S. is unusually high in contrast to either Europe or Asia" ... "Nintendo's flagship handheld device -the Nintendo DS - continues to sell well also, with U.S. sales topping 20 million to date."
I'm a big sports guy, so I'm really looking forward to Madden and NHL 09. I picked up the new NCAA also, but I haven't had a chance to play it yet. Guitar Hero 4 and Rock Band 2 also sound good.
It is a hot item so that is probably more the case. yet they didn't run any proms that I know of. I could have missed it. But compared to like a NCAA football, or other big name game the proms just weren't there IMO
My son was glued to the G4 coverage of E3 and has a big wish list. Most are on your list. I think gears of War 2 and fallout 3 are his top picks.
I have gamefly and rent games also. I have found with gas prices being what they are my trips to GME stores have been halved. My spending as also been reduced on gmames I buy and have instead increased the about of rentals per month my family gets.
Personally I'm hoping the the Wii comes out with more for the Wii fit balance board. The games are great but they get alittle repeatitive after a while.
So adda wii fit 2 to my list.
