WHat will you get from the Launch games ?

Being that games are going to $59 picking good games is important. I'm leaning toward Call of Duty 2 and Madden 2006. THey are supposed to be available at launch.

I'm still deciding if I want a 360 or to wait until the PS3 or even get both.

If I were to get a 360, it would be for Oblivion.

None for a year or two. No need. I didn't have time to get 1/3 through my current gen games. (Just finished Prince of Persia 1 this weekend). I don't play much online, don't have HDTV yet..

So in general, no interest in this gen until it's halfways old and some of the many glitches that'll popup in MS and Sony's offerings are fixed (ie. the vertical system problem in the PS2, the Thompson drive in the XBox, the plastic aligning wheel for the laser in the PS2, DVD playback issues in the PS2, etc.)

Let's see what's on my Xmas list:

Gears of War looks fantastic graphically, so hopefully the gameplay is up to par.

Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter - oh yeah, I'll definitely be snagging this.

I'm still sitting on the fence about CoD 2.

Gears of War is not out till Spring 2006 at the earliest. It is not a "launch window" game.
high resolution ipod featuring dlp hd programming is the best, almost as good as playstation 2 with wega windows media on a super cd! ps2 and tivo do dolby tv with broadband hdtv!

If I were preordering (and didn't have to think about money), I'd probably go with:

Oblivion-I played Morrowind for a week and a half straight. Damn right I'll be getting this. Only hoping that it's better than the Xbox version of Morrowind (DDEs...)

Perfect Dark 0-Will it be the next Halo? All I know is that I'm not disappointed with Rare's games very often, and this has been in the works for a while. It's also getting the marketing focus, so it'd better be good.

Kameo-Again, an interesting looking Rare game.

Burnout 4-Mmmm...Burnout. In High Def no less!

Tony Hawk's American Wasteland-Gave up on the series with Underground, but it looks like this game might get me back into it.

Perfect Dark for sure
Full Auto if it looks good enough
Ghost Recon 50/50 chance
Madden if it lives up to the hype
Kameo only if it scores a 9.0 or better, otherwise see me when its in the $20 bin.
Quake 4 whenever it ships
Same for Burnout.

Is Tiger Woods going to be available on launch or around launch date.
Sad to say but I'd buy the 360 just for that game. Posted Image
Or any other golf game for that matter. I'd like to see Links on the 360 but I think they called it quits(?).
Gimme da cashhh!!

Brian,

It is reported that Links 360 is in development, just not officially announced yet.

Tiger should be out at or near launch. I'd rather have Links myself.
