Something we forgot to mention that was included in Dan Mattrick's ever enjoyable memo
was the fact that, for the first time ever, a few Xbox 360 games have been confirmed for a 2008 release.
Nestled towards the bottom of Mattrick's memo he lists a few games that'll release in 2008 including the not so canceled Alan Wake
and Fable 2
as well as Too Human
Wars, Splinter Cell: Conviction
and "several exciting yet-to-be-announced titles". Wait, did you get that? Alan Wake
is no longer rumored
, but is now confirmed for release this year! Double w00t, w00t to that! But don't get us wrong. We're totally happy to hear Fable 2
, Too Human
and the others are also confirmed for release this year, it's just that we've been in an Alan Wake
drought as of late and hearing that it hasn't turned into vaporware makes us giddy. Anyhoo, it's nice to see some of the our 2008 game release predictions
coming true and know that we won't be in a gaming slump after last year's amazing lineup. It's time to get your pre-orders lined up fanboys, because this year is going to be grreat!
