European Call of Duty 4 release date accidentally revealed

At a recent European press event in Europe a senior brand manager unwittingly revealed the European release date for Call of Duty 4 on PS3. The date, November 9th, plonks it firmly in the middle of the "too many games!" season, with Ubisoft alone releasing two top titles (Haze and Assassin's Creed) during the surrounding weeks.

There's no word yet on an American release date, but expect it to be around the same time as the European release. Activision are maintaining a "Winter" release for CoD4, saying nothing more specific than that. November 9th is clearly a target date, so don't be disappointed if it gets pushed back. But as PS3 owners, we're used to that. Right?

1. I'm thinking I should just book November off as a holiday and get ready for some non-stop FPS heaven! COD4 will be the top FPS in my opinion, even better than killzone (although online play will probs be a different story)

2. Does the guy in that screenshot have a light bulb in his mouth? I didn't know you could play as Uncle Fester.

3. A date of '2nd November' has been plugged in to for some time now. I guess they're not too far off.

Agree about the November line-up, especially with these sorts of games (in no particular order)...
Pro Evo 2008 (end of Oct)
Call of Duty 4
Need For Speed
Assassin's Creed
Lego Star Wars
Something called 'Unreal Tournament'

4. I know some people don't want games released to close to eachother so not to flood the market and hurt sales with too many options sometimes. But it doesnt matter how many come out, if they are good, Ill buy them all!

5. I just don't understand why everyone tries to flood everything into the holiday season. I mean if any one of those games were to come out during the summer drought it would sell just as much if not possibly more. We sit here for months with no games barely at all coming out, and then all the big boys drop at once? That just seems like really poor marketing to me, but what do I know, I'm just the consumer.

9. Has there ever been this good of a lineup coming this fall/holiday/begining of cold winter?

I mean I want to play so many games including but not limited to
-Uncharted:Drakes Fortune
-NHL 08 or 2K8
-Heavenly Sword
-Hot Shots Golf
-Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction
-Gran Turismo 5 Prologue
-Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock

-Medal of Honor: Airborne

For some reason I though that list was longer.

10. wait as second!!!

That guy in the screenshot is the same dude from COD 2. Remember, the English Captain. The must have left his face model the same. wtf.

If you remember COD2 in one of the levels that you fight in Egypt, at the end, after you call in the airstrikes you talk to him at the end of the level and he has a bottle of champaigne or something.

13. Yes, the mustachioed Capt. is the Brit from previous COD games, 1 & 2. The guys over at IfinityWard stated that in a few interviews. Apparently they have a man-crush on the guy.
