No way, theres not a chance they took any of the suggestions from here. Its because Eidos lost alot of money and had to sell so all upcoming Eidos titles got pushed back.

Why do they keep on pushing the the release date back? First it was suppose to come out it May, then March, and now August 1st, Yea right. I was really looking foward to this game but I might buy Socom III instead. Its coming out in late 2005. :mad:

you're funny. do you really think socom 3 won't be pushed back as much as 25tl or more ? socom3 will more than likely hit store shelves sometime around early next year, this christmas at the earliest.

I think your wrong, socom 3 looks like its in very far stages or development and i dont remember socom 2 getting pushed back. Once the beta comes out we will know the final version will be done soon.

Actually I believe Socom 3's release date is also in August, which may hurt the sales of 25TL. Personally, I'm going to buy them both, but to be honest I'm more hyped about 25TL than S3.

yeah socom 3s release is just 2 weeks after 25 to life

Eidos have more pressing issues at present as they are the subject of a bidding war. SCI Entertainment (Conflict global terror, carmageddon etc) looks to be the favourite. Eidos has historically had problems releasing games on time. Hopefully under the new management this will change.

Im just going to buy both at the same time SCIII and 25TL since they are suppose to be coming out at the same time. But we'll see. Im just about hyped about both of them.

Eh..I don't trust that release date, 1up.com says 5/3/05, and their the most reliable. :confused:

Its official: Avalanche hates you guys. They don't want you to buy their game, they want to piss you all off by continually moving the game back and when its finally released it will be a boring, buggy game not worth your hard earned cash. In the end Socom is a much better option since military FPS games have NEVER been done before. This revolutionary setting along with the incredibly original idea of installing vehicles into the FPS genre as the new selling point make SOCOM an obviously better game than 25 to Life.

Seriously some people are so dumb. Video games, books, whatever are almost always delayed. Shouldn't you know that by now? Why take the word of a place like Gamestop? Are they making the game? How should the developers know exactly when it will be released? What if they came up with a great idea that HAS to be implemented to make the game better, is that a bad thing? Come on its just a month stop pissing your pants over it you little girls.

Is the xbox version of this game being released same time as ps2 version?

The old saying in the video game world is "it will be done when it gets done." The thing is dates are pushed back for reasons, and usually good reasons. We end users should look forward to these push backs, the alternative is to quickly mass produce something that would end up being rather buggy, and not very fun.

I would rather wait for a finished game, then get an unfinished game now and hope for a patch.

:D I have worked in the video game industry now for 3 years, and I can say for certain from a developers stand point there is not one game that is completed. Just taken to the best position is can be and then released. This is why ship dates slip, because someone makes the decision that the game is not in the spot they wanted it to be in.

There is no offical release date for any game untill the game comes out! I just got off the phone with a guy from EB games and he said June 3rd 2005 is when they are supposed to get it. So who bloody well knows!

I usually use the store date as a guide to about when the game will be coming out. I its also why I pre-order, so I don't have to keep track of it and just get a phone call when its in.

ok first? Socom 3 is not teh first military FPS 2.It was not thier idea to include vehicals in a FPS... Halo did that 4 years ago. 3. Xbox P\/\/nz ps2 for online gaming... teh ps2's online system is out-dated... XBL is 10 times better plus it has downloadable contant... ps2 don't... not flaming ps2 i'm just flaming Socom 3 cuz its not coming out for Xbox nor will it be ultimatly better than 25TL.

It is a best estimate to when it will be available. They are subject to change anytime.

will this madness evr end!!!!! :mad:
I guess not, since the link now says 8/23/05. As long as the game doesnt suck, i really dont care how many times they push it back, although it is frustrating with all this waiting.
