Just seen that the Xbox 360 has an official launch date of December
2nd. Best get your pre-orders in now folks as they are expecting very
high demand.

Is the launch line-up looking good? I'm normally up to date on new
consoles but the 360 has slipped me by a little. Do you think it is
worth getting early on?

Depends on what games you like really. Games like Project Gotham Racing
3, Ghost Recon 3, Perfect Dark Zero are supposed to be in the official
launch line up but as yet nothing's confirmed.

I suspect that the 'console wars' have become very different. I think
that Sony and Microsoft have enough clout to ensure a lot of backing
software wise so I doubt that either console will flop like the (great)
sega dreamcast did. I would love to see Nintendo do well again with
there new console.

I guess that it is too early to tell which console will have the best
games. Launch line-ups seem to be as much about showing off the console
as producing fantastic games.

Don't open that can 'o' worms again. Basically there will be almost
nothing in it. A lot of developers that were only working for Sony
before are now developing for Xbox so there will be fewer 'exclusive'
titles. On paper the PS3 is technically capable of more but they're
harder to write games for. Personally I'm going for Xbox but maybe one
day I'll also buy a PS3.

I'm going to get the hard drive one. Don't know if I'm going to pre-order yet as Xmas delivery can't be guaranteed now. I may just wait till next year but as soon as I can afford it I'll get one.

Probably best anyway mate... its probably what ill do. From experience,
launch line-ups are normally very limited anyway - and lets face it,
theres guaranteed to be a price-cut within 6 months anyway, it ALWAYS
happens.

Spoke to GAME and went into the high shop and pre-ordered one. They say the shop will guarante one but the internet online shop cant because the allowance has been used up there.

So pre-order in the shops for the 2nd december

What games are people thinking of getting at launch time? I am
currently thinking of Project gotham 3 and Perfect Dark Zero. As Gears
of War looks very good but is not going to be a launch title.
