Pretty good lineup, but a few of these games have been released on other platforms already. But just like the 360's launch up, there is nothing there that will make me want to buy the PS3. The good games I'm excited about will be released sometime next year.

Same here except I am a huge fan of Motorstorm, so it will be hard not having it, but I can wait. There's too much DS goodness coming out soon for me to worry about the next-gen just yet!!!

If "a few" means "practically all third party releases", then yes. But it's a decent launch lineup (or, more correctly, launch period lineup - not all of those would be available from day one), those who have already decided they wanted a PS3 should be pleased. I just don't see it attracting many undecided buyers.

That's a reasonably good launch period lineup. The sports titles should boost interest for the console.

HOWEVER, the fact that Sony seriously lessened the amount of available consoles at launch will definitely prevent them from selling their original projected number of units. That'll cost them, because those lost sales may be snapped up by Microsoft. Many of those third party titles are/will be available on the X360. I'm predicting that those customers, after purchasing an X360, would rather wait a long while til the PS3 drops in price to get one.

Not only have they grossly lessened the amount of available consoles at launch, but now they're not even certain if they'll be able to hit those targets. It better not mean another PAL region delay.

Thats actually a pretty iffy launch compared to the Wii & 360. Theres only bland sport titles and a HL2 clone.

... and a classic RPG, a platform game, a new Tony Hawk's and the ever-popular Tom Clancy.

It's not a great set of launch titles by any means - I'm not seeing the killer, essential title - but I also don't think it's as pathetic as some others do. There's a reasonable amount of variety there.

Well over half those titles are out for other platforms, and the exclusives dont look that good.

Resistance looks like it could be the killer title.
Is has an original setting, great graphics, lots of weapons and 40 player online combats.
Probably the title everyone is getting at lauch.

Hence the lack of a killer, essential title. The games that are being ported from other platforms appear to be good ones, though, so it's not as if the system won't have any games worth playing on it.

Possibly. To my shame (since for some reason I try to read about games even when I'm never going to play them) I don't think that I know anything about the game.

Resistance is the only one I could see from that list that I would consider at launch and i'm not that excited about it. (Just another FPS game)

The others will be out on the 360 before the PS3 lauches over here and will probably get the 360 versions of Call of Duty 3 and Rainbow 6 Vegas which are the only other ones that interest me.

It's FPS set in an alternate reality that involves aliens? taking over Europe. It's still too early to say if it wil only be a "bad Call of Duty with aliens" like some people have been calling it.

But the variety of weapons available and the scale of the multiplayer (I don't think it's usual on consoles) might set it apart from others.

If someone would give me a PS3 that would be the only game I would be interested for launch ,of course I already played Elder Scrolls IV and FEAR on PC, those are also great lauch games.

The Europe launch seems to be much better if Lair, Motorstorm and Heavenly Sword make it on time.

The bottom line is that probably, 90% of the games going forward will be multi-platform third party games, because of the high costs of manufacturing that Trep has mentioned several times before. So really, which console you buy now boils down to first party games and preference. Who would have imagined 6 months ago that Oblivion was going to resurface on the PS3? Or that Assassin's creed will be a 360 game as well. Or that FEAR will be first on the 360 than the PS3, or that even Half Life 2's episodic content will be available for everyone. Or now, as the rumors are saying, the extra exclusive episodes of GTA are coming to the PS3 as well?

Me.

Me again. I've been saying that all along since it was confirmed for Xbox 360 on X05, while it was still known as Project Assassins.

Not me.

Not the same episodes, though, so they are exclusive. That's also been predicted.
