The rumor is false or else most of my friends on Facebook would be lighting up their blogs for the beta. and MoH box says that the beta invite is good for up to 12 months meaning if they cant get it out within 12 months of the release of MoH it is Void.
well I will answer a question with a question, why does this seem odd? I mean if anything Elder Scrolls 5's release date is a little more odd (11/11/11) but I think the answer is to get it out well before holiday season, before black friday and before thanksgiving. this will give plenty of people enough time to get it before christmas hits.
Though uncharted 2 is VERY good, I'm not a fan of the series (and Filian should have gotten the part). My favorite PS3 game would have to be Metal Gear Solid 4:Guns of the Patriots. It was one of the first game to truly distinguish the PS3 from the Xbox 360, also it ended the series on a seriously epic note (the Final Boss scene will go down in my book as one of my favorite boss fights of all time). It was twenty years coming and at the end you just want more.
