    Although I doubt this is a complete list, but going off the top of my head.

    360
    NG2
    Fable 2
    Alan Wake (unless this is 09 now)
    GoW2
    Left 4 Dead (if it's really good as I have no XBL Gold)

    PS3
    SSF2THDR
    SF4
    Wipeout HD
    LBP (again if it's this year)
    Hulk (if it turns out to be as good as ultimate destruction)
    PoP
    Tomb Raider: underworld (if it turns out to be good, i've like the last ones)

    Well that's all i can think of right now.

    Sweet deal. I salute you, sir, for your charity.

    I just find that even if I had the money to buy so many games, I'd never have a chance to play all of them. I'm on the last mission of GTA4, finally.

    lucky bastage.

    Mine thinks I'm a psycho with this hobby :twisted:

    no chance of conversion either... I tried XBLA and story driven games and had to quit my CoD4/Halo 3 online addiction. the only thing remotely interesting to her was scene it.

    My brother's girlfriend likes to watch him play video games. She likes to be a bit of a back seat driver, but that's cool for them because they both enjoy it.

    Happily my girlfriend actually joins in on some games, she was playing GTAIV with me, her doing most of the driving around (and trying some shooting) with me doing most of the missions. We did it in about 40 hours also.

    She also likes some of the PSN games and even completed Uncharted (on easy, but still)

    hm... looks like the Chronicles of Riddick redux will be coming soon. Sounds likely that it will be an '08 release.

    These are games I allready know i'm going to buy. After E3 I will probably add some more.

    Resistance 2
    LittleBigPlanet
    Battlefield Bad Company
    Motorstorm 2
    Metal gear solid 4
    Disgaea 3 (when ever its released in europe.)

    No so many as I would normally buy, but i'll spend a lot of time playing Resistance 2 and probably LittleBigPlanet. I allready spend some money on my HD tv and soon on a decent 7.1 surround sound system so this wont be a cheap year for me. But playing games has never been better.:grin:

    Fallout 3
    MGS4

    Are there any sites with updated release dates following all of the E3 announcements? IGN and PALGN (Aussie gaming site) both seem to have lots as tentative that were confirmed. I'd like to update my calendar, since it seems to be a crazy gaming year again. So many RPGs this year!

    Disclaimer: I may list a game or two that were released this half (or perhaps a couple weeks before, as in the case of MGS4) amongst some upcoming games, also, all games listed are PS3 unless otherwise noted.

    In no particular order:

    Bioshock (I have yet to play any version of this and the PS3 version looks very promising)
    Siren Blood Curse
    Dead Space
    Fallout 3
    Resistance 2
    Motorstorm 2
    The Force Unleashed
    Fat Princess
    Left 4 Dead (is this definitely coming to PS3? if not I'll have to get the 360 version when my roommate finally picks one up)
    Project Origin (PS3 and PC - I want to try each, but will probably end up preferring the PC version)
    Mirror's Edge
    Ghostbusters
    Stalker: Clear Sky (PC)
    Fracture
    RE5
    COD:WaW
    MGS4
    Farcry 2 (PC)
    DNF (lol, I know...)

    I also have GTA4 to play (owned it for a month now, haven't even touched it), same goes for Time Crisis 4 (with guncon, oh yeah!) as well as both FEAR expansions on PC, and I'm finally getting around to playing Oblivion all the way through (owned since release, never beaten). Also currently having almost all my free time sucked up by PSN demos and SuperStardust HD (damn expansions are more addictive than crack).

    Yeah, that's a fair bit of gaming...

    Confirmed Day 1 purchases(random order):

    Siren: Blood Curse
    Resistance 2
    Little Big Planet
    Mirror's Edge
    (hopefully the PS3 version is good)
    Eternal Sonata (Yes im still getting it despite the warnings :razz: )
    Guitar Hero 4 (bundle)
    Rock Band 2 (game)
    Silent Hill Homecoming (please be good on the PS3)
    Tekken 6 (Dont slip to '09 damnit!)
    Just Cause 2 (is this even coming out this year? Oh and PS3 version hopefully)
    Gears of War 2
    Left 4 Dead
    Crysis Warhead
    (PC counts as a MS platform ;p )

    On the fence:
    Motorstorm 2
    Far Cry 2
    Saints Row 2
    Midnight Club 3
    Dead Space
    Project Origin
    Uncharted: Drakes Fortune
    (sorry kittonwy :sad: )
    Fable 2
    Fallout 3
    Infinite Undiscovery
    Tales of Vesperia
    Velvet Assassin
    ('09?)
    Dead Island ('09?)
    GTA4 Ep. 1 (if the content is justified?)

    Im trying to break the stereotype that PS3 doesnt have any games so I choose to pick the majority of the 3rd party games for it, unless it ends up being noticeably inferior to the X360 version to which I have no choice but to join the green side :cry:

    I might've missed some more titles that got my interest, will update whenever.
