Not true. As Veedub stated, Age of Conan uses 4 cores, as well as many others! Lost Planet, Half-Life 2: Episode 1 & 2, just to name a few right off the top of my head. And besides, Intel and AMD are already in the works for 6 core and 12 core CPU's by 2010! Most games that will be developed in the future will have a high chance of being 4 core or MORE compatible. If you don't want to upgrade for, say 3 years, then get the quad-core and get the Q6600 over the Q6700 since the additional price for the x1 extra multiplier and .2GHz isn't justified.
