Default June 17

On Amazons website they had had the strategy guide for CS: Conditon Zero up for a couple weeks with no realease date. NOw the release date for the strategy guide is June 17. could this hint to us that the game will be released a couple days after June 17 cause logically the strategy guide should come out a couple days before the game [img]/forums/images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Negative. I can almost guarantee the strategy guide won't start shipping next week.

Amazon.com also lists June 17 as the release date for the Star Wars Galaxies strategy guide, but the game doesn't ship until a week later.

Yeh ok well maybe it gets realeased June 17 and is shipped out a week later? Who knows. But i dont think they would release the strategy guide a suggnificant ammount of time before the game is actually gonna be released.

BradyGames and Prima have partnerships with the game publishers and get access to development builds of games.

A strategy guide won't be shipped until the game it was written for is released. The shipping date listed for a strategy guide is irrelevant.

Strategy guides are done by other companies, in this case prima. But I believe prima works with the developer to a) get all the info on easter eggs and maps/strategy and b) get the guide out around the same time the games out. Interesting, I dont know if you guys have checked this out but prima is working with valve to produce a strategy guide, a guide for mod making, and a behind the scenes/making of for Half Life 2. Should be cool.

Damn mFu, we posted minutes between each other....you made me look like an ass repeating what you said. lol
And enfestid, actually it was official, Erik Johnson was talking about how Prima really got behind the project and that they share the same goals in quality product design. I'm sorry i cant report a link for ya though. I read it in a magazine but im sure its on the net somewhere.
