    You'd think it would be cake to just click on a website to just see the tentative release schedule for games based on release date, but noooo, havent found any that are even remotely good.

    Anyone have a link to one that is decent? Would be a good feature to add for those of you building your own game reveiw site.

    The problem is it takes a lot of work. Release dates are almost always in flux, especially the further ahead you look.

    I find Gamespot's release calendar to work very nicely. It's broken down by platform up top, then by month. I linked you to the Xbox releases for March. [​IMG]

    Just what the doctor ordered. Thanks!

    Are those dates in store or shipping from publisher?

    Ship dates, I believe. I think you can expect the games in the stores a day or two after the listed dates. At least, that's how it was for Jet Set Radio Future.

    OK, so the Hawk should be in stores tomorrow then... I'm not a big fan of skatebarding but this one looks like the best of the best of them, might give it a shot. Plus nothing else for Xbox has really been able to drag me away from EQ like Halo has =)

    Anyone know of an approx. release date for Unreal Championship? Says spring '02 on the Xbox site, but I couldn't find it on the Gamespot site.

    I look at the schedule at EB for release dates. Their dates seem to be pretty accurate from what I've seen.

    I made an offer to create one here on the HTF, but I only got a few positive responses. With all of the trouble it would be to keep it up to date, it wouldn't be worth it. (unless somebody wants to pay me) [​IMG]
