    This is pure research.
    I want to know what 5 games you are anticipating the most for each of the 3 major consoles. I'm not set on the number 5 so if you can only come up with 2 or there are 10 titles you can't live without list them all!
    I have my opinions on what your answers will be but I'd like to double-check my thoughts. Your answers will have a direct effect on salesperson knowledge in the company I work for.

    Thanks in advance!

    In no particular order, from EBGames' "Coming Soon" list between now and Dec. 31:

    PlayStation 2:
    1. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
    2. The Getaway
    3. Tony Hawk Pro Skater 4
    4. Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2

    Xbox:
    1. Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance
    2. Medal of Honor: Frontline
    3. James Bond 007: NightFire
    4. Unreal Championship


    Gamecube
    1. Swingerz Golf
    2. Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters Melee
    3. Star Wars: The Clone Wars
    4. Star Wars: Bounty Hunter
    5. Metroid Prime

    There are others I'm interested in, but right now these are the "must-buys." Kind of sad, really. I remember during holiday seasons past when I wanted six or seven titles, at least, per console. Now, there's just a handful on each that I feel I must have.

    For kicks, here's my PC list:

    1. Age of Mythology
    2. Medal of Honor: Allied Assault Spearhead Expansion Pack
    3. Unreal Tournament 2003

    Forgot to mention I'm interested in Jedi Knight 2 and I just wanted to point out it is coming out for the Cube and the XBox. Not sure what the differences will be if any in terms of features though.

    Splinter Cell, Brute Force, Jedi Knight II for Xbox are my calls. At least those that really interest me. I don't follow the other consoles.

    I'm suprised only a few people mentioned Splinter Cell... I think it is going to be the game to beat this fall.

    Check out IGN's extensive coverage... lots of great screen shots. I can't wait to get my copy.

    I'll keep it to 5, here's my list in Priority order:

    Xbox:
    1 - Steel Battalion (Tekki!) - far and away #1 on ANY system
    2 - Dead of Alive Extreme Volleyball
    3 - Mech Assault (already got Live!)
    4 - Shenmue II
    5 - Splinter Cell (since CS for the Xbox seems delayed)

    PS2:
    1 - Grandia Extreme
    2 - GTA 3 Vice City
    3 - DDR Max (mostly for SO)
    4 - Shinobi
    5 - Legaia 2 (maybe - haven't seen a lot on this title)

    comments:

    I only plan to actually buy Steel Battalion, DOA VB, Mech Assualt & Grandia - the rest go on my Christmas list. Might buy DDR Max & a good pad for Christmas for my girlfriend.

    Haven't really thought my GBA purchases, but I do want Tactics Ogre. As far as the GCN goes, I'll get one, but not until Skies of Arcadia ships for it.

    And, I must say, I EASILY want Steel Battalion 4-5 times more than anything else on this list. If I have to get one thing, that's the title.
