Design the Ultimate Console Launch

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Design the Ultimate Console Launch

So some have mentioned (Denis Dyak being one, I think) that this might be the last generation of multiple consoles; that in the future there will be one universal console. I think that is a ridiculous idea, but the concept made me think of a new game.

Design the Ultimate Console Launch

It is teh future! There is only one monolithic console and you control it. By some random chance you have inherited the reins to the greatest, most powerful console ever created. But what is a console without games? Here is where you come in. What 20 games do you launch the system with? You get to pick from all existing IP's (no new IPs allowed for launch). Create the most rounded, exciting, jaw dropping launch in the history of gaming. Good luck and don't blow it or the fanboys will be out for blood.

  I like the idea of having the list evolve.  Let's change the rules a bit.  Rol's initial list is good.  Now, just change three per turn.  If you like how the list is, bold a game that you don't want to see taken off the list.  It takes one move to unbold a game, another to remove it.

Mario Party Mario Tenis Mario Basketball Mario Universe Mario Shopping Mario Accounting Mario Baseball Mario Soccer Mario PingPong Mario Breakdancing Oh wait accounting isnt a original, but then again.... I kid! I kid!



The most rounded, okay, here we go:

  1. Halo (FPS)
  2. Gran Turismo (racing sim)
  3. Super Mario (platformer)
  4. Metal Gear Solid (stealth action)
  5. Devil May Cry (action)
  6. The Legend of Zelda (action adventure)
  7. Fire Emblem (strategy RPG)
  8. Final Fantasy (RPG)
  9. Mario Kart (fun racer)
  10. Metroid Prime (FPA)
  11. Madden (sports, american football)
  12. Pro Evolution Soccer (sports, football)
  13. Resident Evil (survival horror/action)
  14. Soul Calibur (beat'em up)
  15. Star Fox (shoot'em up)
  16. Grand Theft Auto (sandbox game)
  17. Wii Sports (sports collection)
  18. Mario Party (party game)
  19. F-Zero (futuristic racer)
  20. Guitar Hero (music game)
There should be something in this launch lineup for everyone, replace the games you don't like with another one of the same genre if you disagree. Diversity ensures maximum market penetration.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

wow, i almost completely agree with Rolstoppable. although i would just switch 3 things. i'd put in super smash bros. instead of soul caliber. and i'd have to have a great star wars game in there (either battlefront, rogue squadron, or KOTOR). and i'd replace grand theft auto with the star wars game. sorry for all you kids who love GTA but i think those games are boring as crap. and then i'd switch out gran turismo for burnout cuz gran turismo games are also boring as crap. i don't like mario party either but i can't think of any good party games (maybe fuzion frenzy, twisted system is amazing) but mario party would be the most popular so i'll keep it in there.

 

so the list would be:

1.halo

2.burnout

3.super mario

4.metal gear solid

5.devil may cry

6.Zelda

7.Fire emblem

8.Final Fantasy

9.Mario Kart

10.Metroid

11.Madden

12.Pro evolution soccer(i'll just agree on this one cuz soccer games are awesome but i haven't played a new one in years)

13.Resident Evil

14.Super Smash Bros.

15.Star Fox

16.Star Wars

17.Wii Sports

18.Mario party

19.F-Zero

20.Guitar Hero

 

To go along with the launch all the multiplayer games would be online as well. there would need to be a great online community set up and worldwide online tournaments for all the multiplayer games with stat tracking and all that business. I would stock pile the systems for a few months before launch to make sure games had plenty of time to be perfected and so that at the global launch 10 million systems would be available and they would all sell out in the first month at the mass market price of $250.



end of '08 predictions: wii - 43 million,  360 - 25 million, ps3 - 20 million

 

Games I've beat recently: Super Mario Galaxy, Knights of the Old Republic, Shadow of the Collossus

I am ashamed of myself.

I would actually buy Mario Accounting. I think it's true us accountants are the most boring people in the world.

Originally GTA wasn't even on my list, for some odd reason I always forget about this series, probably because I share your opinion on the fun factor of this game.

The game previously on the list was Ridge Racer, so there you have a replacement for your arcade racer Burnout. Soul Calibur and Smash Bros. was a tough choice, but I chose SC because I like it more.

But for the most part I chose series with a long history of quality games and good/great sales numbers. For a console launch you want to have well recognized names.Star Wars fits on the list as well of course.
