Come on. This news was primed for such a headline.
So as it turns out, the date has been changed for the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection . As you may have seen at other sources, both Amazon and GameStop have a new date for the highly anticipated package: November 8.
Now, as the entire planet knows, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 comes out on that same day. The guaranteed biggest game of the year. It'll probably sell over 20 million copies, and maybe even more than 25 million. The biggest game ever, in all likelihood. The summer blockbuster of movies coming in the fall. But real gamers, those who have a history of enjoying the hobby, those who enjoy something with a tad more substance than a big ol' mindless shooter, will absolutely spring for the Collection on that day.
And this goes well beyond the hardcore MGS followers (and there are lots of those people); I honestly believe some of these gamers hate CoD so much, they'll buy the MGS Collection almost entirely out of spite . I can just picture one of the MW3 haters going, "yeah, I'm going to spend money on not one, but three games that actually feature depth, substance, story, etc, etc, etc." Hey, I'm not the one saying it. Just ask around. See if I'm wrong.
