While some of you were hoping to sit down and play White Knight Chronicles this year, we have more evidence that it simply won't happen.
During E3, we heard the promising PlayStation 3 exclusive RPG wouldn't release until Q1 2010 and now, GameStop has a new date for the game in their database: March 1, 2010. Now, you may say that's just a placeholder date – and it may be exactly that – but GameStop's launch dates aren't always out of whack. Take God of War III , for example: it has been listed in the retailer's computer as having a March 2010 release date for a looooong time…through all the rumors it might come out this year, through all the rumors that it might release earlier in 2010, that date never wavered. And lo and behold, at the end of that bad-ass gameplay demonstration at E3, it was revealed that GoWIII would indeed launch in March 2010. We don't like GameStop very much (sorry, not big fans), but you have to admit, some early dates they have are surprisingly accurate. And March does coincide with the Q1 2010 estimate given at E3, so we figure you should probably just accept it. Of course, if this is the case, the two games mentioned here would have to go head-to-head, and if so, we feel sorry for WKC.
But really, just get both, people. Just do it. The games are so different in just about every way; you know you'll want the best of both worlds.
