Are they ever going to make games like Witcher 2 and Metro 2033 for PS3?

Buy it, play it, beat it, trade it. <----is why I no longer have backlogs. It was silly for me to buy a game, let it sit there for a month or whatever, and then see the game $20 cheaper. We all know the games drop in price. If you know you have 17 other games you haven't played yet, save your money.

No info as of now, maybe get it for the PC if you really want to play it. The spec requirements of Witcher 2 is not high.

Speaking as someone that used to own THQ stock and recently sold for a massive loss, in the case of Metro 2033 - NO. When they made that game the studio that made it didn't have the expertise on the PS3 so they only did PC and 360. They're currently developing Metro Last Light, I think that may be on PS3 though I can't really remember. Metro 2033 is a good game, I'd play it on PC if I were you.
If you're wondering about a port in the future, I really doubt that THQ is going to port 2033 to PS3. They're damn near bankruptcy right now. People are buying the stock hoping it will be a lotto ticket that will make their $1,000 investment 5,000 or 10,000. It could happen but they could also lose it all. THQ is on the bring of bankruptcy. We'll know within a matter of months if they're gone. They had 3 games coming out in the next quarter (Jan - March). They delayed all three games and then said that the delays mean that they won't have enough cash to run the company until the new release dates. So they have to refinance their 100 million in debt and find a new lender or they're gone.
A lot more information than you wanted but I'm pissed off and sort of depressed about losing 80% of my money.

I think you meant to quote jcp? And tell him that Metro is not coming to :ps3:?

I bought it for $10 but gladly would have paid $20. That being said, there's no online aspect or DLC codes so if its going to your backlog there's no point in buying it now. Wait for a lower price or buy it used.

Thank you so much, you saved me a lot of trouble and even tax! Best Buy sent me an email a few hours after I placed my order to inform me that the game was actually out of stock at the only nearby store it was listed at, and to call them to work something out. I just canceled it instead and made my order at Amazon.

If you click on the New prices, Amazon still has it for $19.99; it's just backordered at the moment. That's why they're showing a third party fulfilled by Amazon on the main product page instead.

Thanks for the heads up. I ordered 2, but cancel both of them when I saw previously

OMG 3 DOLLARS MORE!!
Could be a profitable resell though.

That's for the 3DS, this is for the Wii. Even so, I don't care about the Mario & Sonic games. If they were to make a Mario or Sonic type game and have both of those franchises together in it, that'd be great, but no, Nintendo decides to make a Mario Party type game. Damn you, Nintendo.

Save yourself $20 and just buy the regular Blu-Ray as the CE isn't worth paying the $20 premium.

Although, it is your money and/or GC so you can do as you please, just a helpful tip.

It's only saving $10. It's the DOTD for $30... But is it really that bad?

I recently wanted to get this movie for the blu ray collection. I looked into the collectors set and the only extras you get are the tin and the christmas leg light set. I decided on just getting the regular blu ray for $9.99. I didn't think the bonuses are worth the extra $20.

Here's a unboxing:

I got Christmas Story for $1 on Blu Ray at Blockbuster when they were closing. Also got Hangover, Inglorious Bastards, and bunch of other great movies.

Hoping there is a good DOTD for game this week. I haven't bought one since Resistance 3 couple months back.
