The Xbox 360 launced in Australia today, three weeks later than originally planned.

Except that the seem to have forgotten to release any games.

There's not many console games that I've really found worth playing. Final Fantasy X, sure, and X-2 was kind of fun as well. I spent some time playing Sudeki. And then there's Dead or Alive and Rumble Roses. Racing games, sports games, general fighting games without hot babes, I could care less. Shooting games I got enough of with the orginal Doom, Quake, and Duke Nukem.

And what are they launching with?

Ghost Recon 3 - a shooter.
Burnout: Revenge - racing.
Condemned - some sort of horror thing, another category in which I have no interest.
Fight Night Round 3 - a boxing game. No babes.
Kameo: Elements of Power - an RPG which actually looks interesting.
Project Gotham Racing - the name speaks for itself. Nice graphics, boring as hell.
Perfect Dark Zero - a shooter. A shooter with a babe, but still a shooter.
Amped - a snowboarding game. Yeesh.
Madden NFL 2006 - ick.
Quake 4 - see above.
Ridge Racer 6 - more racing. Yay.
Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2006 - even more boring than the real thing!
The Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion - yes, it's an RPG, but based on the two hours I spent playing Morrowind, it's an RPG that I don't need to play.

Meh. And a number of those seem to be US imports, and not local releases. Either that, or they are just horribly overpriced.

Score Sheet

Must haves: 0
Might be okay: 1
Crap: 12
Number of consoles sold to Pixy: 0

On the other hand, there's another Sims 2 expansion pack out next month. And I don't even have Open For Business yet...

5 This is the editor I'm using for Minx.  It doesn't quite work as a drop-in for MT, but it's a good way to test it.

6 One issue I know of: Shortcut keys like ctrl-b, ctrl-i, ctrl-u only work in IE, and not in Firefox.

7 And it doesn't work in Opera at all.

12 I've managed to save up roughly $42457 in my bank account, but I'm not sure if I should buy a house or not. Do you think the market is stable or do you think that home prices will decrease by a lot?
