At a press and retail event in the UK last week, Ubisoft outlined its plans for Christmas 2005 and confirmed that both Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter and Peter Jackson's King Kong would be released to coincide with the launch of Xbox 360 toward the end of November.
Both games are due out on other formats. Advanced Warfighter will also be released on PC at some point as a first-person shooter - the Xbox 360 version is predominantly third-person. King Kong, meanwhile, is due out on a massive eight formats. As well as X360, it will appear on PS2, Xbox, Cube, PC, GBA, DS and PSP this Christmas as one of Ubisoft's biggest ever launches.
Recently speculation based on US retail pages linked both titles with the launch of the new console, but we believe this is the first absolute confirmation of the French publisher's plans - at the very least, it's reassurance that those plans are firmly in place, and now confirmed with UK retailers.
