More predictions [update]

Just a quickie here, seeing as Nintendo posted a projected release forecast for the first quarter today, but did not have dates for some games, such as NMH2 (late-January) and Red Steel 2 (Q1):

January
ACII: Battle of Forli DLC (XBLM/PSN) - 20/21*
No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle (Wii) - 19
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (WiiWare) - 18

February
Red Steel 2 (Wii) - 2
ACII: Bonfire of the Vanities DLC (XBLM/PSN) - 3/4*
Heavy Rain (PS3) - 23**

March
Mega Man 10 (WiiWare) - 15

May 
Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands - 25***

*Respectively, as XBLM releases are on Wednesdays, and PSN releases are Thursdays. Which, that reminds me: if the PS3 came out after the 360, why didn't Sony opt to make PSN releases on Tuesdays rather than Thursdays, beating Microsoft to the digital storefront of multi-platform releases? Doesn't make a damned bit of sense.

**Wikipedia has a date as 2/28, however, there is no source listed, as nobody has given an official date. Suck it, whoever you are editing Wiki pages on a whim.

***The Prince of Persia movie is out 3 days later, on the 28, so the Tuesday beforehand makes perfect sense. Oh, and TFS is an "interquel," taking place between TSoT and WW. Yea, my face looked just like yours when I saw that word on Wikipedia. Never heard it before, and I plan on using it many times next year.

[UPDATE] In a video detailing the DLC for Assassin's Creed II, they say that the second DLC pack, Bonfires of the Vanities, will arrive in February. The report I read said that it was "expected" in January. I guess that didn't mean shit for the whole 2 days it was out, huh?
