Quantum of Solace due November 4

Activision's game tie-in to MGM's Daniel Craig-led spy film hits retail shelves a week and a half before box-office debut; preorder program detailed.

Activision is giving James Bond fans plenty of time to check out Quantum of Solace before the MGM film of the same name steps to the box office. With the film out November 14, Activision confirmed today that Quantum of Solace will arrive on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2, Wii, Nintendo DS, and PSP a week and a half earlier on November 4.

In addition to offering a date on the game, Activision took the wraps off of its preorder program. For Xbox 360 and PS3 gamers who pick up the game in advance at specialty retailer GameStop, Activision will toss in a token for a free multiplayer map pack that can be redeemed after the game launches. Best Buy preorders will be offered a $10 discount good on any James Bond DVD.

Activision's Quantum of Solace spans more than just the upcoming Daniel Craig-led espionage film, incorporating events from Casino Royale, the first film in MGM's latest reboot of the storied franchise. Developed by Call of Duty 5: World at War studio Treyarch, the Xbox 360 and PS3 editions of the game will feature Infinity Ward's Call of Duty 4 graphics engine.

With so many highly anticipated games coming out one wonders how well this game will do? It looks good, and has a great Studio behind it so I think this will be the sleeper hit of the season. I just wish all the new games coming out weren't so expensive, even this one is 60 bucks. That may be its downfall.

"With the film out November 14, Activision confirmed today that Quantum of Solace will arrive on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2, Wii, Nintendo DS, and PSP a week and a half earlier on November 4." Is there going to be a psp version or not? Gamespot doesnt have a page for QoS on psp.

Suprisingly, it looks good. Now tbh im not sure about treyarch because they made COD3 which didnt suck but didnt rock either, but this actually looks pretty mint

Hope the story won't be the same as in the movie. Even though it seems that way:( I hate when developers do that.

I'm actually reasonably excited about this game. It looks to be pretty decent (if they release ANY footage), and it's gonna be on Wii(the Conduit, personally, looks like crap). My only gripe with this setup is that TREYARCH is developing it. Ooh dear.

Looks like Treyarch ditched the PC again. I'm still honestly surprised they are giving us World At War. Oh well, lets see here. Treyarch, six platforms, licensed movie game. Oh dear. Glad I don't get my hopes up.

now, why isnt the wii getting the COD-4 engine, it is on the new COD-5??? Why not for Bond? I really dont care, but you would think that if one can do it, then why not the other.

I haven't seen a REAL AWSOME Bond game since Goldeneye, so if this game can go in par with Goldeneye or better, then I'll definetly get this.

I love Bond games since Goldneye on the N64. I can't wait to play the Daniel Craig version of Bond. And I have a Wii, so who dosen't want to use the Wii Remote as Bond?

Resistance 2's sales will pound the living **** out of Quantum of Solace. Don't get me wrong though. I think both games will be kick *ss.

It's got a ways to go to beat Everything or Nothing. But, from what I've seen and read, it's got a good shot at it. I'll pre-order it anyway, just cause I'm a 007 freak.

I'm with re4leonkennedy, plus this game is based on a movie and Treyarch developed it, not getting my hopes up(yet).

The game looks great i just hope the game play itself doesn't suck. i enjoyed the casino royal movie and quantum of solace will be kick ass as well.

At least, EA didn't get their hands on this Bond game.

Can't wait to see the movie! Hope the game isn't a letdown.

Strange that the release comes this early. It's not as if a Bond film needs to generate any buzz for itself lol.

At least its not as bad as releasing a game based on a film a month before its released *cough* revenge of the sith *cough* But really why would anyone want to play this before seeing the actual film its cashing in on. Play the casino royale levels but honestly don't spoil the film.

The game as well as the film look good. Especially if the game is using the cod 4 engine. I hope the game will have good online multiplayer
