    Google just added the feature that if you search for a game or a movie and you add release date behind it, and Google will try to guess the release date based on information around the net.

    Yes
    Best guess for Dead Or Alive Dimensions Release Date is 2011
    - Comentarios¿Es precisa esta información? Sí No
    Mentioned on at least 6 websites including ign.com, pinoytutorial.com and gamefaqs.com -

    Oh, it just lists it as 2011... I thought it would be more specific

    Meh, I'll continue to use VGdates [​IMG].

    Though, still a nice service from Google.

    I guess that's expected for Dead Or Alive Dimensions. There are a lot of ranging dates from people making wild stabs at the release. Amazon lists it as the 24th, I think, and I'm pretty sure it's a launch day title in Gamestop.

    I noticed this too, for some titles it does work and for others it doesn't work.

    its a beta version... feedback will help them. The strange thing is that they came up with this. Its like they give access to all information already available... but they wanted to do more and now they are giving information about the future? it would be funny if they predicted stuff then, professionally
