Did anybody else react to the announcement of the Bioshock Infinite delay with a surprising amount of relief?
Bioshock Infinite is (well, was) one of my most anticipated games of the year. But it was slated for around October, and q4 this year looks INSANE. Never mind the games I'm interested in, there's also the [probable] release of the Wii U, and mega blockbusters like Black Ops 2 coming out.
All of those would have hurt Bioshock Infinite's chance to stand out and get the attention it deserves, not to mention my ability to take my time and enjoy everything Ken Levine and co have put together.
Publishers! Stop back-loading the calendar with major releases. This isn't the 1980s anymore. The majority of your customers are NOT children, and we don't need to wait for Christmas to get a new game. Spread out your releases and give your titles some damn breathing room.
