The Landslide

Here's what EB Games shows as shipping on 11/15 (available in stores 11/16):
Half-Life 2
Everquest II
World of Warcraft
Medal of Honor: Pacific Assault

If that's not crazy enough for you, here's what ships the very next day (11/16):
Prince of Persia: Warrior Within
Sid Meier's Pirates
Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines

I'm not even listing everything--just the biggest titles. Gamestop has similar dates with the exception of World of Warcraft (not date listed) and Prince of Persia (11/30).

What's going to be interesting is to see which games move. As a guess, I would expect Pirates and Medal of Honor to move to early December, and maybe Prince of Persia as well. There has to be a limit to what most of us are willing to spend in a two-day period. Vampire should stick because it may sell additional units because of its use of the Source engine, which makes it the only title that could benefit from being released at the same time.
