  E3:  Xbox Lineup  
Posted 2003-05-13 by Tony Walsh
A big fat handful of titles for the Xbox has been officially announced, including sequels "Halo 2," "Conker: Live and Uncut," and "Project Gotham Racing? 2." Other titles this year: "Kameo : Elements of Power," "Grabbed by the Ghoulies," "Fable," and a version of the venerable "Counter-Strike." Also of note is the new XSN Sports imprint, integrating Xbox sports games with an online component, wireless gadgets and PCs.

Ugh, talk of Xbox makes me physically ill. I wish gamers would not support Microsoft's move to control the gaming industry. There are enough good games on the PC, PS2 and Gamecube to satisfy any gamer. Why be a party to MS's monopoly in another sector? Cnet is reporting today that their Xbox division's loss has doubled in the 3rd quarter, year to year, to $190 million. A mere bag of shells to them though as their operating system division had a profit of $1.99 billion(yes, with a "b") in the same quarter. So, they're happy to throw a few hundred million down the drain for a few years flooding the market with products. Soon Nintendo will fade away and PS will be left with a token marketshare. Then MS will start making a profit in gaming...and we will all be paying for it.

Agreed on most points, Mash. Xbox is not my favorite platform. To Xbox's credit, though, the barrier to entry for developers is a lot lower than for PS2 or Gamecube. It's also (as far as I understand) easier to develop for the Xbox since it's really a PC inside. I can't see the Playstation fading away. Nintendo, maybe.

And Nintendo will fade away because of their own stupid laziness, and their habit of screwing their customers again and again.
