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 If you want the general gist of what to expect from the PS3 launch lineup then check out the rough, outdated list here.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.

Just got home from Deadpool and ... it's not good. I liked the jabs at Green Lantern and the previous movie Deadpool, but that was about it. The rest was just painfully forced dick jokes. Wife fell asleep.

Looks like I'm not gonna be able to 100% Tearaway Unfolded until Monday at the least. I'm definitely writing about it this weekend and am trying my hardest to get my screenshots off of my PS4 (especially hard as I don't do social media anymore)

I've never done a blog before, so I may as well try one with a review of Stranger of Sword City....well, when I get entered into that contest of course

Shakedown Hawaii is giving me good GTA vibes. I missed the topdown GTA games when they were a thing. I have to decide what platform to get it for since it's coming to 3DS/Vita/PS4/PC (probably the Vita version for moi).

You think your art sucks? Here's the rule34 I made of Larx yesterday. Look at it and despair.

Hey Dreamweaver? If you think your art sucks, you should have a look at my magnum opus. It's of Cloud from the popular game, Final Fantasy: All the Bravest.

I never thought this would happen, but here I am. all of my 700+ pokemon gone in one day. My cart stopped working and there's nothing I can do. I quit, you can't just rebuild all that. Time to find something else.

It may be because I've been drinking but... We need some dung beetles from ark for the front page. Move that dung on out.

Does anyone know how to get PS4 screenshots onto a PC without needing a flash drive? I don't have a spare.

This is an example of how bad my drawings are. I honestly think drawing stick figures would've been easier on the eyes. :( The worst thing about this image is that this was made after I got BETTER. Trust me, you don't want to see my earlier stuff. T^T

So I received a mysterious box in the mail today. When I opened it I was blown away...The friends I've made here on Destructoid are amazing (More pics in the comments).

Woe is me. This month's Cblog theme is basically an excuse to draw pretty girls, and here I am with no time.

Back in tip-top shape guys, feel waaaaay better than I have done these past few weeks. Plus my voice sounds slightly raspy now, meaning my Batman impression has been upgraded. Apologies to Gaj and Solar the most, my male-up kisses go to you: Xxxxxx

Wait... Is that...? Could it be...? It IS! Gravity Rush's Kat has taken a break from rushing and graviting to sacrifice some souls in Soul Sacrifice Delta! Which isn't even going for $8 on the PS Store right now! What a steal!
