The first half of the year is traditionally quiet as far as new releases are concerned, leaving us twiddling our thumbs waiting for more games to come along.
Meanwhile, yesterday we found out that Dragon Age: Inquisition will be released on the same day as the new Lords of the Rings title and Alien Isolation, making for what sounds like an expensive week. Looking further into the year there will no doubt be even more expensive week's, where gamers will have to choose or spend a fortune. But why?
It's understandable that Christmas is more than likely the best time of year for publishers to make a profit, but with so much space on the Q1/Q2 calendar and gamers desperate for new titles, it seems to us that publishers are missing a trick. Do you think Watch Dogs won't sell just because it's arriving in May? Of course it will, and it'll more than likely sell a lot. So why wait until closer to christmas. Give us games please, we are starving.
