    I picked up the latest issue of the official Xbox magazine which included a demo DVD. On it was a trailer for The Thing. It supposedly takes place where the John Carpenter flick left off. Man, it looks awesome!
    You get to fight the imitations and keep your group together so they don't turn on you.
    I'm deffinetly picking this one up when it is released next year.
    Anyone else see the demo?

    This has been in development for the PS2 for a while. I'm not surprised it will be on the XB.

    The preview did look pretty good.

    Regardless of which platform this game is on - the preview rocks! I have the demo disc as well.
    The recreation of the ice block scene in the Norwegian research station was very cool - especially with the original movie score pumping away.
    The whole thing sent goosebumps down my spine!
    Guess who makes an appearance in the game!
    Just found my most wanted game!
    I do have concerns though about this coming out from Universal Studios internally. They don't have much have a track record that I'm aware of. Correct me if I'm wrong here.

    As far as I can tell, this game comes out next week.

    I was wondering if someone could drop by with a game review once they've checked it out! Thanks!

    The PS2 version is next week. Sadly, the Xbox version isn't due until Sept 10th...

    My local EB says it'll be in-store on Wednesday...
    I'm waiting for the Xbox version, myself. If for no other reason that to get yet one more purchase the hell away from Buffy, Dead To Rights, Mario, and Monkey Ball 2...
