Let's Compare Launch Games

PSWii60 I think we can all agree that the most important part of gaming are the actual games. So let's take a look at the launch games for all 3 of the new consoles. Feel free to judge after the christmas color jump: There was the 360's launch lineup:

  • Amped 3
  • Call of Duty 2
  • Condemned: Criminal Origins
  • Gun
  • Kameo: Elements of Power
  • Madden NFL 06
  • NBA 2K6
  • NBA Live 06
  • NHL 2K6
  • Need For Speed Most Wanted
  • Perfect Dark Zero
  • Project Gotham Racing 3
  • Quake 4
  • Peter Jackson's King Kong
  • Tiger Woods PGA Tour 06
  • FIFA 06: Road to FIFA World Cup
  • Ridge Racer 6
  • Tony Hawk's American Wasteland
There's the PS3's launch lineup: 15 Games including 'Resistance: Fall of Man' - but not including Heavenly Sword, Formula One, Motorstorm. I don't expect MGS4 or FF13 to make it to launch either. When I get word of official launch games I'll update this post. Feel free to try and fill in the blanks on your own for now for bonus points tho. If you want the general gist of what to expect from the PS3 launch lineup then check out the rough, outdated list here. And there's the Wii's launch lineup:
  • The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
  • Metroid Prime 3: Corruption
  • Wii Sports
  • Red Steel
  • Tony Hawk’s Downhill Jam
  • Madden NFL 2007
  • Dragon Quest Swords: The Masked Queen and the Tower of Mirrors
  • Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz
  • Metal Slug Anthology
  • Trauma Center: Second Opinion
  • Elebits
  • Marvel: Ultimate Alliance
  • Blitz: The League
  • Rayman Raving Rabbids
  • SpongeBob SquarePants: Creature from the Krusty Krab
  • Disney/Pixar’s Cars
Ok, so now that you at least have a partial idea of what to expect from Wii and PS3 and have had time to reflect on the 360, let's hear what you think about each set of launch games. Don't forget that nearly every console's launch list sucks, and feel free to compare each console to its predecessor. And don't forget that by the time Wii and PS3 launch 360's list of games released will already be growing large, so that counts for something.
