According to GameStop, Resistance 2 is set to release September 3rd, 2008 in the US for $59.99.
GameStop's release dates, as you well know, aren't always terribly accurate, especially this far off from the title's supposed launch. Their dates are usually estimates or dates sent in from the publishers (in this case SCEA), and only when delays or cancellations occur are dates moved, so just take this news with a grain of salt.
On another note, GameStop and EB Games are now taking reservations for Resistance 2. As of today, for only $5, gamers can reserve a copy of this epic sequel and ensure that one is available the day the game releases.
*Update: We called a few GameStop stores to confirm the release date and apparently it's September 3rd, not the 18th. Once again though, GameStop dates are only estimates from publishers and corporate, and are not official.

I'm sure it isn't. But that would be nice. I vote for November.

I've never understood reservations. Why would you reserve it so far off? It's not like if it's gonna sell out if you don't reserve it. I don't think I have ever seen a game that isn't possible to get at a store without reservation on the day it releases.

PSNID : BringIt23
ARE YOU KIDDING ME!?!?! What about GarandTheftAuto, Halo 3(I know it is a XBOX game), even I think it was the Madden 06. There have been PLENTY of times games have sold out everywhere on day one. MGS4 will DEFINETELY sell out on day one. I can almost GURANTEE it. On topic though i really hope it does come out soon I am lookinf forward to getting it ASAP!!!

Either late October or mid November are my speculations

the only thing to keep in mind though when putting down money. don't put down ALL the money, at least not until its really close to release date. all the company does is take your money and put it into a high interest savings account, and thus they earn a lot of moeny off your $60. instead put only $5 down and put the $55 into your own savings account ( i love the ING accounts, they earn over 4%) this way you make money off of it, instead of gamestop or eb games

Well if the release dates right, we all know that Insomniac games will hit the said release date. Insomniac never delays and always meets release dates. Ex. Resistance 1 launch title. Also Insomniac says that single player is roughly done ( without polish) im sure they can hit Sept 3rd.
- 5:32pm EST - January 25th, 2008
That date sounds about right. Insomniac almost always release their games approximately 1 year apart. I love Insomniac. Expect the next Rachet and Clank before years end also, put $100 on that.

To PS3!!!!!: dude, you spelled favorite wrong, thats pretty sad.....

To KH3Owns: Not considering the fact that he's probably not American is also quite sad...

GameStop makes up these release dates pretty much. They get a rough estimate from the company and then pick a day they think might be close. The same thing happened with MGS4. There is no solid date for it.
GameStop does this because customers are much more likely to pre-order a game if there is a date down on paper even if it's totaly bogus. I know this because my girlfriend works at GameStop.
