    I'd better get some overtime in.

    Some great games coming to the 360 next year, is anybody else's list of 'must have' games like that?

    i want halo 3 with the replica helmet that comes with it, im looking at about £60 just for that.:eek:
    mind u i dont know why people get games from places like play,com, its cheaper to go to places like tescos, morrisons,etc.
    im into fps so i think huxley and bioshock are on the cards.
    plus ive heard rumours that there are going to be new alien and star wars fps too.:thumbsup:
    and lastly a game i loved but hated the no - chance to save part and the crappy graphics....
    TUROK, yes its coming back and looks well mint.
    mmmmm think your right about the cost:D

    Know the feeling so far for 2007 ive pre-ordered.

    Mass Effect
    Alan Wake
    Stranglehold
    Assasins Creed
    Army of Two
    Halo 3
    GTA 4

    Might slim that list down some but i doubt it. Plus ive still got the HD-DVD drive early part of the year (waiting till i move into my new place and have my dedicated games/entertainment room so i have the surround sound and everything all set up properly). That and ill probably end up buying a Wii.

    Oh yeah, plus im getting married in Vegas in April ontop of all that and new property purchase i mentioned above.


    Thank god for bonuses and working long hours.:p

    I will only pay £35 for a game unless its some thing like GTA which I would pay £39.99 for.

    But most of the time I buy used games. Its cheaper

    I'll only pre order if I really really want the game at launch or if I can get it for £30 or less. Otherwise I'm happy waiting to see if its region free (and thus about £25 from play-asia) or till I can get it second hand. Still, next year is going to be expensive as I want most of those games myself.

    Unfourtantly the hours i work i very rarely get out to the shops during the week and to be fair the high street winds me up something proper on two days of a week which happen to be the same two days of that week that everyone else has and trying to get everything done.

    So literally 2-3 quid more max(and not even that on every single release) id pay online for release day delivered to my door is well worth it in my situation.

    Is GTR like Gran Turismo or more like PGR3 where you just pick a car and race instead of work your way up by buying a turbo, new wheels etc... then selling up and buying a better car?

    I thought the opposite, can hardly think of any good games for 2007, if thats all of them then thats hardly "expensive".

    I know its each to their own, and this I am not dismissing what you say but, throw in Half life Ep 2, Halo 3, Halo Wars, Army of 2, Crackdown, Lost Planet, Command and Conquer 3, Rogue Warrior, Blue Dragon, Colin Mcrae DIRT.
    Seems pretty good to me.

    Actually you got a point there, there's quite a few heavy weights in that list. Just hope more games start coming out, the rate of games being released isn't very high for a "successful" console.

    Pretty similar to the xbox1 or worse?

    I think after an OK start, COD 2, PGR 3 etc which were, IMHO, quite good launch titles there appeared to be a bit of a dip in the release scedule. Since November however things appeard to have improved and hopefully, there will not be too much slippage in release dates for the upcoming titles and the 360 will start the new year off well. I think this is important as it needs to make as many waves as possible in order to maximise the slow release of Ps3 titles. But, at the moment I don't think it can be stated that the 360 has been a "success" so far........

    I think I may need a promotion next year to pay for all the releases I want!!

    You dont think that 350 quid spent on games in the first two months is expensive?

    Must be in the wrong job:rolleyes:

    If you were a real fan, you'd wear it while playing. :D

    But seriously, where are you guys playing all these games to know they are 'must haves'? I've not seend any demos and I'd be very reluctant to purchase a game blind (with the exception of Halo 3, obviously).

    I want

    Halo 3
    GTR
    GTA IV
    Forza 2

    In that order I think. They're reasonably spaced out, but I'm sure there'll be more that I haven't thought about! But &#163;120 isn't too bad (refuse to pay more than &#163;30 a game...).

    May get the HD DVD player though, depends how much Blu-Ray flops. If it goes well, I'll wait for a hybrid standalone player, but I hope HD wins!
