@junkboy0: ya even a week later would of been better, this game does look awesome but a movie game (or that's how most people will see it) going up against the biggest game of the year, bad move.
i'd bet any money that this will outsell mgs on opening week. the average joe doesn't even know what mgs is, and this is exactly the kind of game the average joe goes nuts for. it'll have all the hype, all the marketing, all the cod crowd.
it looks solid too.
I don't think you know how popular MGS is.
