I guess this wasn't exactly what BH wanted on a friday afternoon [hand]
And I can not agree more Rude, I saw a post Blackhat made on EA's forum about what info he had still to release before the game comes out and looking at the time between the airdrops until today that will take, perhaps not 400 days but I would say at least six months.
Is it anyone here who has a feeling for if there is better times (economically speaking) to release games (except christmas). I know music artists take that into concideration when releasing new albums. I think you know what I mean despite the language.
Interesting question. Summer tends to have a lot of, um, distractions. Like outdoor activities, ladies shedding their winter clothes (and pounds), and just other things to occupy the minds of the predominantly young male audience. On the other hand, with school out, there is more leisure time.
I think fall would be best. The initial shcok of returning to school is over for the low 20s and below set. The cooler weather is making indoors activity more appealing. Time to fire up the latest game and start fragging.
But this is pure rambling conjecture on my part. I'm just trying to see if my PC is going to remain stable now that I rolled back the video driver (NEVER download and install an HP software update and never buy one of their laptops).
From my point of view, spring is as good as here, a lot to do in the garden. Summer is closing in with long nights, barbequing, hollidays, holliday trips. And i have a feeling WWII games has a different audience than teenagers, people like me, around 40, not a new Counter Strike game but something that appeals to our interest in history.
So, I'd say autumn, october would seem reasonable. Main geographical target is US/Canada for this game, secondly Europe and third Australia. Asia is not even concidered a market for this release, neither is Russia.
