Yes, Lair has been massively overhyped by Sony apologists clamoring for a hit game. It's not the type of game that will attract people in large numbers to a console. To compare it to the 360 lineup, I would put it somewhere at the Bioshock level of interest. It has a niche following and may be a great game, but there isn't a lot of mass consumer interest in it. For the PS3/360, I'd put system sellers in this order:

1. GTA IV (will move units for both systems)
2. Halo 3
3. Blue Dragon
4. Heavenly Sword (somehow not even on that list)
5. Mass Effect
6. Uncharted
7. Bioshock/Lair

I intentionally left off Lost Odyssey because I'm still not certain that it will even release this year, despite promises from Mistwalker.
