Should games have release dates ? VOTE

I am getting tired checking Appstore everyday looking for a title like Star Defense and other games. There should be dates when the games are going to be released

Well, major titles do have release dates. Once their approved the developers can choose to not make it live yet and setup a date for pushing it live.

No DPad - iPhone and iPod Touch gaming. Who says gamers need a dpad?

Release dates are usually a good idea, gives ppl an idea of when to expect the game. They also help devs cut sometimes unnecessary stuff so that games get released on time, which may or may not be a good thing, depending on who we're talking about.

Of course then there's always those jerks who just ignore it all and break like, 3 release dates in a row for high quality standards..lol...

I imagine you'll see devs start to take advantage of hard street dates as time goes by. Especially when more in-depth games start to hit the store.

Id rather a better game than having devs forced to throw something out before a release date.

Now Playing:Real Racing 2, Galaxy on Fire 2, Reckless Racing.
