Wow, this has been the rumor since the game was announced back before last year's E3. =D I've never been a huge fan of this series (( 'always found the battles to be a little too chaotic )), BUT i can see how this game has people excited.... and geez... dec 3rd release date?? This will be the one you'll see on eBay for $100 come christmas time.
Too bad there's no online play. Or i'd be more interested. I'll most definitely rent it ^_^
