Perfect Dark In The Dark?

Where’s Perfect Dark Zero? If you’ve been following the crazy, out-of-control pre-launch week of the Xbox 360, things really haven’t even started yet. Believe me. This is JUST the beginning. But one of the strangest things that’s happened so far is that Rare’s first-person shooter, Perfect Dark Zero is nowhere to be found. In a strange, seemingly conspiratorial move that’s actually not been deliberate on Microsoft’s part, the Xbox 360 game that’s received the most scrutiny and the most hype thus far, Perfect Dark Zero, has not shown its pretty little head. Just like at Microsoft’s pre-E3 press conference, it’s just gone and hid itself. Microsoft has been too quiet about its whereabouts. But the company assured us today on the phone that the game was given a long development cycle -- much like it did with Halo 1. Microsoft told us the game been completed, gold disc pressed, it’s gone to manufacturing, and should arrive in the mail tomorrow, Friday, November 18. There are only two plants that can manufacture Xbox 360 discs, both are in China, and so transporting the games from that end of the world to this end has taken time. Perhaps too much time for this bunch of impatient gamers. Kameo: Elements of Power was finished first, and Project Gotham Racing 3 followed. Perfect Dark Zero was the last of the first-party Microsoft Game Studios titles to be completed, and its time has finally come. Just like everyone else, we purchased our own copy PDZ at retail stores this week (or rather, we pre-ordered it), and just like MS tells us, the retailers have told us to come back tomorrow (Friday) when the title is supposed to appear. If it does in fact appear, we’ll deliver a whopping monster attack of impressions and media unlike anything you have ever seen, my friends. Single-player, co-op, multiplayer, sound, graphics and gameplay descriptions, you name it. We’ll have it. But if it doesn’t come in tomorrow? Well, just like us, you’ll have to wait another day. We’ll let you know either way.
