    I will be buying xbox 360 on launch for one reason: Dead Or Alive 4

    :eek: :eek: :eek: :thumbsup:

    Can't wait for that one.

    I will also be getting Gears of War as that looks amazing, PGR3 and Ghost Recon 2 look stunning.

    Don't want to wish away the summer but....

    For the main course i'll be ordering a 360 with a generous helping of PGR3, with a side portion of Ghost Recon and i will probably have a dessert of a sporting nature either Tiger Woods of Top Spin 2

    I personally will be waiting to read up on the ingrediants first so to be honest I dont know quite yet.

    However PGR3 does sound tasty for a starter

    Call of Duty 2 is my starter, main course and desert sir. Looks tasty, and I loved the first one... On my home cinema, I'm hoping it'll be ace. A bit of PGR3 wouldn't go amiss either...

    Oooh decisions decisions.

    Im going for a bit of Project Gotham Racing 3 for starters,
    with Call Of Duty 2 for the main course
    ....with a side order of Gears Of War,
    and Madden 2006 as desert. Maybe with a vintage Halo 2.5 to wash it down.

    MMMMM. Delectable.

    PES5 is a current gen release sadly and should be out on PS2, X-Box & PC October ish. It should be out sooner in Japan as winning eleven 9 I presume (usually around August time).

    The likes of PGR3, GR3, COD2 and Gears of War all look impressive though and would make for a very strong launch line up if they did all appear at launch. :thumbsup:

    in such contrast to a typical Nintendo line up:

    1: Mario World
    2: Mario Tennis
    3: Mario Party
    4: Mario & Luigi
    5: Mario Baseball
    6: Paper Mario
    7: Mario Kart
    8: Mario Golf
    9: Mario Pinball
    10: Mario Paint

    ;)

    who knows...maybe there will be some exciting new additions to the Mario range this time. Perhaps...

    Mario Car Mechanic
    Mario Shopping
    Mario clerical assistant
    Mario brick layer

    The possibilities are endless for the Mario franchise! ;)

    I was always a bit confused that Paper Mario wasn't an evolution of Paper Boy...

    In response to the original question, I'll probably pass on the 360 on launch but am interested in backwards compatability as I don't own an XBox yet and really fancy KOTOR along with the media centre functionality. Not really a fan of racing or sports games so I'm a bit lost with the current lineup. :)

    They reckon Kameo should be ready as a launch title but Rare has changed so much as a company in recent years that it may well be crap like starfox adventures was

    No, you didn't mate, there is no confirmed launch release list yet. Going from To The Game, the list of titles coming out either on launch or close to is:

    DogTag
    Perfect Dark Zero
    Battlefield 2: Modern Combat
    Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
    NBA 2K6
    Call of Duty 2
    Quake 4
    Tony Hawk's American Wasteland
    Need for Speed Most Wanted
    Tiger Woods PGA Tour 06
    Kameo: Elements of Power
    Project Gotham Racing 3
    Gears of War
    Saint’s Row
    Full Auto
    NBA Live 06
    Frame City Killer
    The Outfit
    NHL 2K6

    though I'd probably say Ghost Recon 3, Dead or Alive 4 and FIFA 2006 are likely to be out early too. I've bolded the titles that have interested me or I've heard good things about so far...

    The point was regarding how keen ole' Ninty are on diversifying this poor little chap. No longer is it sufficient for him to remain a plumber but now he must be a golf pro, a baseball legend, a GP driver...the list is endless. Essentially they get him doing what ever they can as long as it brings the pennies in.

    I do agree that the line up for the 360 does look very FPS & Driving game based and I appreciate the humour in your list. Mine was just a bit of banter back really aimed at Nintendo. I guess Ninty try the hardest to be original and innovative but it all comes down to what's going to being the cash in at the end of the day.

    I for one would be happy with a good selection of driving & FPS titles though :smashin: .
