Microsoft Most powerful console available. The Xbox is doing well on its homecourt, but on the road sales aren't dominating.

Gawd... Splinter Cell, MK:DA, Jedi Knight 2, and 007 Nightfire all in ONE week!

Splinter Cell 11/18
James Bond 007: Nightfire 11/18
Mortal Kombat: DA 11/18
Jedi Knight 2 : Outcast 11/19


Great, but OVERKILL. This gives many gamers no chance of recovery from the Xbox Live launch. Not just that, I really think that it is unwise for so many potential hits to compete with Splinter Cell. December seems to be a calmer month, so it would have been better revenue wise for games like JK2: Outcast and 007: Nightfire to be pushed to December. This is pure toture and flooding the userbase. Too much of a good thing can backfire in sales, like Soul Reaver 2 did for the PS2 last year.

But I don't mind Mortal Kombast arriving next week.

I want Deadly Alliance and Splinter Cell really badly, but I'm getting UC this Friday...then Live two weeks after that. Plus I might be getting a cheap copy of Substance in my library.

Only 2 are worth a damn though...

EA's track record with the Bond games has been poor, even though this one looks good, I doubt it will be.

And MK is MK, worth a try, but never worth a purchase. (this coming from someone who owns the first 3 )
