    I've heard a couple of bad things about Perfect Dark Zero, but I still have high hopes. I was a big fan of Goldeneye and Perfect Dark. PDZ still looks like the best launch game to me.

    PGR3 will be hard to resist too. Some of the HD clips are looking great.

    I was disappointed to see Ghost Recon delayed until February. This was the one I wanted on launch day. The in-game clips look incredible.

    What game/games will everyone else be getting on launch day with their 360?

    As long as they are available I'll be getting COD2, PDZ, PGR3 and Kameo.

    A few others such as Condemned I'll be getting as soon as I get that 'I need a new game fix', which'll prob be a week after launch. ;)

    The PDR graphics are not the best to demo the capabilitys of 360. Has all the look of a game written for Xbox, with some upgraded textures for 360. Still {I am sure it has good gameplay and multiplayer.

    Just not a great launch title to show the capabilitys of 360.

    I have this and COD2 on pre-order and Kameo. Undecided about PGR.

    <<The PDR graphics are not the best to demo the capabilitys of 360. Has all the look of a game written for Xbox>>

    Yeah, I know what you mean. Of all the big launch day releases, it's the most graphically unimpressive. I'm hoping it will shine more in the flesh, but it certainly doesn't have the wow factor of the others.

    There are still 6 weeks to go. I think in that time I might turn to COD2 as my second launch day purchase. COD2 doesn't look bad at all.

    Watch the latest HD clips at www.xboxyde.com and then come back and tell me they're not impressive. The texture detail and lighting are some of the best in any game ever, the screenshots simply don't do this game any justice at all. Its Kameo and Perfect Drak: Zero for me at launch, I know I can trust Rare to deliver.

    I really hope you're right. I've got PD0 on pre-order and am not cancelling it until there are some definitive reviews.

    Rare have an excellent reputation and I'm sure they will not let us down with PDZ.

    Got this pre-ordered, along with Call of Duty 2, PGR3 and Fifa06

    Im getting my full pack bundled with PDZ. I also wanted Ghost Recon: Warfighter and Madden 06 but theyve both been delayed... Looks like the only other game I'll be getting is PGR3..

    Well others seem to rave about Kameo, but it leaves me cold. I'd rather have the 'inferior' PDZ which just looks fun to play

    Then PGR3 is a definite - completed PGR2 and loved it (apart from the cone challenges)

    Then it gets tricky. I want COD2, but I don't want two FPSes at the same time, so that could wait for the post release lull. No Ghost Recon.

    so just those two for definite, and maybe a random purchase from whatever else is on the shelf.

    CoD2, PDZ, Kameo and PGR3 already preordered.

    Still considering which sports title to get on launch day!

    I was previously decided on PGR3 (pre-ordered in 360 bundle) and Oblivion. Now im not so sure. Definately want PGR3, but im not sure about any of the others at the moment. Kameo previously didnt interest me one bit, but it really is starting to look good, and as there is a severe lack of info on Oblivion im starting to lean towards Kameo.
    COD2 looks good aswell, but i dont normally like FPSs with gamepads. Having said that, ill never get it running as well on my PC and a few sites have commented on extra little graphic effects that you wont find in the PC version anyway.
    Think ill just stick with PGR3 at the moment and wait for some solid reviews come the end of Novemember.

    The reviews of the initial batch of 360 games are so important. It will make or break the launch in my opinion. Obviously there's going to be shortages but if there 4 or 5 top class games available at launch this good press will cancel out any negative press about shortages.
    I'm banking on there being 4 must have games.

    Where's the cheapest place to pre-order 360 games?

    I don't think you'll get much cheaper than £40 at play.com. A few of us on the forums managed to nab some for £34 during the Asda offer but apart from that I haven't seen prices dip below £40, so I guess Play are the cheapest.

    im absolutley bricking it about shortages, it makes me sick inside thinking about not getting one. Im second on the pre-order list at my local GAME. So I should be ok.

    PS Im not hijacking the thread

    I'm not risking anywhere online. I'll happily take a hit on the first few titles just to make sure they don't get delayed. No point picking the machine up at 9am on the Friday and there aren't any games to play on it.

    I also prefer the flexibliity to check whats actually been released, and rejig my purchases on the hoof if necessary.
