Today, PS2.IGN.COM released new information concerning what titles we will see when the PlayStation2 console reaches North America. What's interesting about this whole situation, is that while many retailers can provide some information pertaining to these launch titles, there have been few (if any) hints of how the console itself will be released on October 26th.


Right now, many of these dates are for the most part, tentative, and should be treated as such. As with any upcoming video game console, along with upcoming software, there can always be reasoning for a delay, either for technical or social purposes. Right now, it seems that these games are more likely than ever to make the launch date when the console is released this October.
