Provide a list of upcoming "new" old games

Added bytygrr3's avatartygrr3

It would be nice to see a periodic (monthly?, quarterly?) list of games that will be added to the site in the near future. Once license agreements are reached and official plans are in place for various games to be added to the site, it should be possible to post a list of games that will be coming soon. For example, Theme Hospital just became available today. Obviously this had to be in the works for some time now, so it would have been nice to see an announcemnt about that game coming soon a month or 2 ago. Most of us have limited budgets for game purchases so it would be great to be able to plan ahead for a great old game that I want to have before it comes out instead of spending my money on a mediocre current game just because I have nothing else to play. This could also help generate sales as word of mouth will bring other people in looking for those "new" games.

This is ultimately a mixed bag. As others have explained, sometimes it can save some money or hassle in terms of buying the game elsewehre first (I don't suffer that because I mainly buy here, but I'm thinking of other people here, too). On the other hand, I sometimes like to be surprised, and I wouldn't doubt if they obtain a game and release it, like, right after or something similar anyway. I suppose sometimes it might help (like it has with the pre-order deals), but I don't think it's always necessary even if this does come to pass.

I agree with this. I almost bought Don't Starve on steam because I didn't know it was coming to GOG, but listing it as an upcoming release saved me. You can keep doing the mystery releases of course, but we'd like more notifications.

It looks like something along these lines has occurred with Fez and Don't Starve showing up in the "New & Upcoming" list. Can we see a few more listings like that?

I don't want to know about maybe's and whatif's... but locks should be advertised. Even if its months away, I'd like to know. This is solely for GOG's benefit as I'd rather buy from GOG. But, if I have no clue a game is in the works, I may buy elsewhere versus not knowing if GOG will ever work it out.

Good idea. Provided that the titles are uploaded on (or before) the release date published.

No no no.. have you ever read the playstation blog? Half the posts are people complaining that expected game Y has not come out by date X even when a delay has been explained.

I would like to know which games Gog is working on, too. The page could be kept apart so that people who want it to be a surprise do not see it.

I like the surprise, but also like to know what's coming. This suggestion is especially useful for new games, so people can consider where to buy them.

Within certain limits it wouldn't be a bad idea. Obviously not before the talks are complete but once GOG has the publisher's approval/agreement and they go to the phase where they tweak/patch the game they can, theoretically post it on a Soon-to-be-released list. Unfortunately that has the downside of impatient people asking for ETAs and pestering the GoG people, not letting them do the tweaking and testing required to the best of their abilities.

As a customer, I would really appreciate this, even if it has a disclaimer saying "this list may or may be complete. Games on this list may or may not be actually released soon". As for GOG's bussiness, I'm not sure if this would be good or bad.

They don't have to say when the game will be available so there could still be that element of surprise. I can get a list from Gamestop or Amazon for all of the brand new games coming out for the next 6 months to a year... it would be nice to see what will be added here over the next several months.

In my opinion this doesn't make much sense, especially from a business point of view. And also as a user I actually enjoy the suspense I experience on every tuesday and thursday pretty much.
