I for one am happy to hear this. Not because I don't want the new Splinter Cell. I wants it bad. But I just need some space in between my must have games. Mass Effect 2. Bioshock 2. No More Heroes 2. God of War 3. Final Fantasy XIII. Splinter Cell Conviction. All practically sitting on top of each other. I'm all for spreading out big game releases all year long, not loading them up in the Fall. But this is a little crazy. Those are just my must have games. That doesn't even touch on the other titles I'm interested in but will have to take a back burner to the big names above. And I still haven't even touched Dragon Age Origins or New Super Mario Bro Wii.... I've been so busy and caught up in Assassins Creed 2, Borderlands, ODST and Uncharted...
