I'm a little surprised that the XBox discussion has quieted down recently, (I guess everyone's busy finishing Halo on Legendary ) especially after all the news at E3. Recent forays online have had me drooling at all the stuff that's on the way. Just to name a few: Blinx: The Time Sweeper Panzer Dragoon Orta Unreal Championship Halo Online (Halo 2?) Phantasy Star Online Ninja Gaiden Dead or Alive Extreme Volleyball Shenmue II Elder Scrolls III: Project Morrowind Doom III Not to mention Peter Molyneux's unbelievable concepts "Project Ego" and "BC". But, the daddy of them all has to be the plans for XBox Live. 40-some online games promised at/near launch. Looks like we are going to get a chance to put our hard drives to use, and have massive Flood VS Covenant deathmatches afterall. Right now, XBox has 300 games in development, and 200 that will be available by XMas!!!!! (probably US release dates, but still impressive) A lot of people (myself included) thought that the XBox was just going to be a console dumping ground for hastily ported PC games, but it looks like the developer base for the Box is growing every day. I had said before that I was satisfied with Halo, DOAIII, and JSRF for my XBox... not anymore! I'm on the edge of my seat waiting for all these games to come out on my new favorite system and the wait is driving me crazy. Oh well, it'll give me a chance to sort out a broadband Internet account for Live, and build up some much-needed vacation time.
