Forums: Index War Room Adding a countdown to the release of First Strike
Forum logo

On other gaming wikis, there is usually a countdown to the release of new content or games, eg. Little Big Planet 2. Does anyone else think it is a good idea to add a countdown timer, and know how?

LittleBigPlanet2 is much different and much more important to it's respective series. And I've never seen a DLC countdown come up..... Doctor Richtoffee Talk 18:31, January 24, 2011 (UTC)

To be honest, we only did that with Black Ops for tradition, the countdown actually looks quite bad. I don't even think it works with Oasis. Smuff[citation provided] 20:47, January 24, 2011 (UTC)
It works --Callofduty4 21:23, January 24, 2011 (UTC)

I think it would be pretty fun to see the a timer up, so why not? It looks pretty cool to. Nikolai Cannot Die 09:25, January 25, 2011 (UTC)

I believe a date is all that is required. Shotrocket6 Talk 11:47, January 25, 2011 (UTC)

Well if you guys can think of a way to implement it without disrupting the main page then be my guest, but we never did that for any past DLC content. Smuff[citation provided] 17:08, January 25, 2011 (UTC)

Pictogram voting oppose Oppose — It would be tough, as it is released on different dates for different platforms/consoles. I think it would be confusing to new users and anons to differentiate which one is which w/o a gigantic PS3 or XBOX 360 thing.

We'd have to do two, one for the Xbox and one for the PS3. ToShootToKillTalk 08:25, January 30, 2011 (UTC)

To be honest that would just be two fingers up to anyone who uses a Playstation 3. Smuff[citation provided] 11:36, January 30, 2011 (UTC)
Smuff is right. It's too late now that it would just say "Fuck You" to Playstation users. Nikolai Cannot Die 05:28, January 31, 2011 (UTC)

No point. The 360 version will be out in a matter of hours and PS3 owners are going to bitch and moan about how they're getting it next month. Spare us the problems. US Army OF-2 Rambo362 US Army OF-218:42, January 31, 2011 (UTC)

This should really be closed, as having one would be a giant kick in the teeth to PS3 and PC players who have to wait a whole month for it. elmo's Elmo 150px ramblings 21:04, February 3, 2011 (UTC)

To me, countdowns should only be done when things are universally released. Having multiple countdowns for the same thing seems pointless and confusing. And yeah, it might piss off the people not getting it yet. Personal Poketape 8-bit Price Emblem flippedPoketape Talk8-bit Price Emblem MW2 21:16, February 5, 2011 (UTC)
