Next-gen console games

by Brandon on January 11th, 2006

Because it often comes up in discussion, I’ve started creating a list of next-gen console games that will define each of the three consoles (Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Nintendo Revolution).

The list is here.

Please help me fill out the list. It’s not meant to be a complete list of games – but rather a list of exclusives, franchises, or games that will appear on one system significantly before the others (as previous GTA games did on the PS2, or Splinter Cell on the Xbox).

So far I already own an Xbox 360 and I’m extremely happy with it. However, depending on the launch line-up and price – I might also be buying a Playstation 3 and Revolution when they come out. Given the low cost expected from the Revolution, it’s almost a no-brainer. I love games like Smash Bros, Mario Kart, and most of the Zelda franchise. For me, the Playstation 3 has the least appealing game selection so far. Not that it’s bad – there are cetainly some titles that I think could turn out great (Heavenly Sword being one of them). But with an expected price of $500 or more, I’m not sure it’ll be enough to convince me to spend that much on another Playstation when my PS2 was easily the most neglected system I owned in the last generation.

So tell me what you think… Do you plan to purchase any next-gen consoles? Already have one? Or are you going to wait it out?
