That is a solid launch selection there is actually more than one title that I want. I didn't care about any of the 360 launch titles. Nintendo is looking better and better (even though I already wanted one)

All they need is Zelda and Metroid to stomp a hole into the PS3, 25 more are just icing on the cake. I was hyped about the PS3, now Wii looks more and more like my choice.

I'd disagree. I have a sort of mark at 4 launch titles before I'd even consider buying a Console. With the Wii, Zelda, Metroid and Final Fantasy is it for me. It doesn't even get my minimum 4 with those launch titles.

While I don't know how many of the announced PS3 games are launch titles, I believe my PS3 game list is now at 20 and climbing.

The big 3 will serve them well, but I don't think the fact that the big 3 are there will cause gamers to swarm to the system. However, I don't doubt it will far outsell PS3 due to its much lower price-point and more kid-focused nature. Launched at any other time of the year I don't think it would do anywhere near as well as it will.

Not poo-pooin in the thread, I'm just sayin, it's gonna take more than the big 3 to get my purchase. :rolleyes:

I really don't know what games I want, other than Elebits. I think they all look incredibly fun, I'm especially drooling over the Virtual Console. Speaking of the Virtual Console, I wonder what kinds of games the independant developers have brewed up for us? :)
