Quote of the Day…GameStop “Nintendo Has “a couple” of Unannounced Games”

“…The new title base actually looks very very strong for the second half starting in the fall obviously with Madden, Rock Band Beatles, you’ve got Guitar Hero 5, the new Halo 3, and Batman as I said earlier, and then going into October with Tekken 6 and BioShock 2, and then going into November with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Assassin’s Creed 2, and we believe there’s a couple of Nintendo titles coming that have not been announced. So, it looks like actually a very very strong fall and holiday season.Then going into November with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Assassin’s Creed 2, and we believe there’s a couple of Nintendo titles coming that have not been announced.” – Gamestop executive David W. Carlson

No kidding Gamestop…. Still promising non-the-less. E3 is quickly approaching my young Jedi’s, stay tuned. I promise our E3 coverage will be off phenomenal.
