    Anyone have any idea when this game will be released on Xbox. Some say Dec 19th, some say Jan 9th. I find it hard to believe that it would be Jan cause everyone has reviewed it already meaning it done and the smart thing would be to get it out before Xmas, right?

    Just to clear up anything I said, it looks like the date is Jan 8th 2002. IGN did a preview today and I will go by their word on this one. Although if the game is done, why not release it before Xmas, I just don't see the logic in it.

    Sorry guys

    EB is now showing a 12/20 ship date. Several other e-tailers have bumped up the street date as well.

    Just got reviewed by Gamespot...got 7.9, slightly higher than the 7.7 the PS2 version got tho the XBox extra episode doesn't sound too exciting.

    "Konami had at one time stated that the episode would take four to six hours to complete, but most seasoned players will be able to finish it in slightly more than an hour. Its solitary puzzle is straightforward, there's not a great deal to see and do, and those hoping for a much clearer sense of the storyline will end up feeling let down. It is a commendable extra, but, as mentioned earlier, it's not worth buying the Xbox version for if you already have the PlayStation 2 edition. "

    NextGen mentioned completing the Xbox extra story in under an hour...
