Depends on the system. Xbox is pretty much dead- the only notable exclusive I can think of still to come is Half Life 2 which most of us have already played.
The exclusives are bare, that is true.
However, crossplatform gaming is still better on the box.
Rainbow Six Lockdown, Dynasty Warriors 5, Spiderman Ultimate and Burnout Revenge all have me wondering if anyone can recommend a Gamefly-like service in Canada.
Thing is, since my xbox is going to the ex and henceforth it will be known as the ex-box, I'm getting a x360. (:shock: ooo, double entendre!) Since I've made that commitment, I'm not shellin' out money for xbox games that devalue faster than I can beat them.
Burnout Revenge is now paid off (trade 3 at EB), and it's the x360 version too.
Traded in Ninja Gaiden, Burnout 3 (lost save games due to warranty repair) and Dynasty Warriors 4.
I'm not buying DW5 either, they've got a special edition coming for the x360.
Update: here's a list of games I'd like to at least rent for the Xbox assuming they all come out this year... well, there's one in there I wouldn't touch.. I bet you could figure it out though
