Operation Flashpoint Gets PS3 Release Date In UK?

Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising has a chance of becoming one of the most intense and authentic military video games in history, but it has eluded the limelight due to continually shifting release date estimates.

However, as noted by LivePlayStation, it appears that the very promising title has appeared on the UK GAME website with a September 25 release date. However, it's interesting to see that we can't find evidence of the same date for the Xbox 360 version. The official site for the game simply says "Fall 2009," and with the changing about of those launch estimates, we're wondering if the game is still set to have a simultaneous release...might the PS3 version get precedence? It seems very unlikely, especially these days; even timed exclusivity is tough to come by, as evidenced by the fact that most games this generation get simultaneous multiplatform launches. But the fact that only the PS3 version has a date affixed to it is curious, although we still don't have any confirmed date for North America. Hopefully, Codemasters will fill us in on the correct date for both versions of the game, and we strongly urge you to keep a close eye on Dragon Rising, as it could very well become one of the most memorable experiences of the year. If you don't believe us, check out the latest Fear and Anticipation Trailer and judge for yourself.

Sure, the competition is crazy high but we believe Codemasters can give us something special. And it's great that it might arrive before the heavy hitters in October and November.

According to the pictures it's FPS.

Damn one of them looks SOOO much like COD: WaW looking down the sight.

Great trailer,
It really makes you feel like you're there.
I wonder what they're gonna do to get out of that huge trap they boxed themselves into?

Yep, that move wasn't very smart, should have stayed in the forest shadow and lay an ambush on them Dragons :-)
Looks promising and since I don't expect KZ3 to hit anytime soon, I think this could be a nice addition to my FPS holster.

EB has had that game listed as september for months.
but than they have the agent GOW3 alan wake GT5 heavy rain red dead redemption FF13 and V13 listed as this year, and we all know neither of those are this year.
so when it comes to release dates i dont rely trust them.
but than they did have the dates first and correct for resistance 2 killzone 2 and infamous.
now they have uncharted 2 listed as 24.9.09.
lets hope there right but that seems impossiable to me because the MP demo from gamestop does not end till the 27th.
so why would they release the game before the demos over.
they wouldent.

I heard this game is going to be the most realistic shooter this generation to the point where even a scratch mark near your eye will affect your vision. That is according to Playstation Magazine, but then again they said it was also exclusive which isn't......

Looking forward to it though!

This game looks intense.....Taking point Sarge!

I hope it has more of a strategic and stealth kind of play than COD4. Killzone 2 and COD franchise have the run and gun market cornered.
