Pre-Order Games For Xbox 360Activision Xbox 360 Games Primed for Pre-order April 8, 2005 - Game retail sources have verified that three Activision games, Quake IV, Ultimate Spider-Man, and Tony Hawk's Underground 3 have appeared in their database flagged for pre-order. Retailers often update their databases using information provided by salespeople from their publishing partners. While Microsoft is hoping to announce all its news at its Pre-E3 press conference on Monday, May 16, an Activision salesperson must have told EB these games are sure bets for Xbox 360. Activision has not officially announced Quake IV, Ultimate Spider-Man, and Tony Hawk's Underground 3, though rumors have bandied about on the Net for some time about their existence, particularly on Xbox 360. Id's John Carmack confirmed Quake IV was in development for PC at QuakeCon last summer, while Neversoft has yet to miss a year since the first Tony Hawk game in 1999. But none have been officially stamped as XBox 360 games...yet. The retailer confirmed yesterday that fliers were distributed to employees explaining that customers can now pre-order Quake IV, Ultimate Spider-Man, and THUG 3 for Xbox 360. According to the source, customers can deposit $20 to pre-order any of the three. We'll have more on Activisions upcoming games soon.
