Xbox 360 games already shipping
EB Games ships Kameo preorders; Perfect Dark Zero, Project Gotham Racing 3 expected in retail locations this week.
In the middle of last month, the Xbox 360 controller was discovered in stores, leaving many a gamer wondering why Microsoft would release a peripheral for a console not even available. Turns out that head-scratcher had a viable reason: The controller is also PC-compatible.
However, gamers who ordered Kameo: Elements of Power for the Xbox 360 may be in for another perplexing situation. Postmen all over the country are delivering the game to front doors a full two weeks before the retail launch of the Xbox 360.
One GameSpot editor got the game today directly from EBgames.com. The retailer's Web site, as well as that of GameStop, presents the following: "Usually ships in 24 hours." This means the game is physically in the company's warehouse.
GameSpot called an EB Games retail outlet, and the store expects to have Kameo in later today, as well as "possibly" Perfect Dark Zero and Project Gotham Racing 3. All these games are published under the Microsoft Game Studios brand.
The product pages for PGR3 and PD0 show that EB expects the games to ship November 14 and 16, respectively.
Kameo: Elements of Power is rated T for Teen and retails for $49.99. For more information on the game, head over to GameSpot's previous coverage. To learn more about the Xbox 360 launch, take a look at GameSpot's Xbox 360 Launch Center.
