Look at the U2 or U3 MP reveals. They were showed off way before the games came out. I hope this is a sign that they are very sure that the MP will be good. If they show off the MP this month and have a beta or something next month, I'll be happy with that.
Well they gotta show it eventually. If I say that they might show it next month and that's when they happen to reveal it, does that make me a **bleep** god? I mean there's no point in trying to guess. It's like you guys are just looking for a pat on the back anytime you slightly predict something.
