42w ago - Following up on the North American date, today Sony Worldwide Studios Producer Jeremy Ray has confirmed a European release date for Sports Champions 2 as well.
Below are the details, to quote: Hello, this is Senior Producer Jeremy Ray with a message all the way from San Diego Studio to let you all know that Sports Champions 2 will be available from 31st October 2012 across the PAL region.
In about two short months you will be able to play the much anticipated sequel to the first Sports Champions, introducing Skiing, Boxing, Tennis, Golf, Bowling and the new Archery event.
Since we are getting so close I'd like to take this opportunity to give a little update on the game. Right now the team is primarily focused on squashing bugs and adding some last minute polish. The finish line is in sight and we are very excited to finally get Sports Champions 2 into living rooms all around the world.
Once done, we hope to be able to take a quick breather before getting back at it again with some post-release support. I hope to be able to give some more information about that after launch.
Here's a reminder of some of the great content that will be...

To quote: We've very happy to announce the release date of Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception Game of the Year Edition as 19th September 2012.

A quick recap for newcomers: Drake's third adventure catapults our hardy adventurer headlong into a dangerous search for the fabled "Atlantis of the Sands", taking in the mean streets of London, a burning French chateau and the heart of the Arabian Desert.

It features 10 classes to choose from: Novice, Fighter, Swordsman, Ranger, Monk, Ninja, Sorcerer, Puppeteer, Idol, and one Mystery Class. Once the party is created, quests are offered and the party can choose their adventure path, unlocking ever more distant and dangerous areas to conquer as they grow in power and confidence.

To quote: Excitement around Hitman: Absolution has been building at an impressive rate over the last year.
In fact, today it's exactly one year ago we came out and announced that we were working on Absolution and we've had a great ride.
