Meh. Without halo, the lineup is just average.



Around the Network

The fall Destiny expansion launches the same day, and will be on Gamepass. I'm assuming we're getting the next gen version that day. I think that's a critical component of the next gen XB launch, considering the loss of Halo.



Most consoles don't have a great launch lineup. Switch with Breath of the Wild is one of the few exceptions. No Halo certainly hurts the lineup at launch, but the console will be sold out through the holiday season. Let's hope Halo Infinite launches in March or April 2021 OR Microsoft has another heavy hitter ready for early 2021. If not, sales will drop a fair amount.

Lets be real, any console launch is better than the Switch. BOTW was quality, but you need quantity too.



Pocky Lover Boy!

Honestly, that is pretty snooze worthy.... But I haven't seen a launch lineup that wasn't...

Dreamcast had a great launch lineup. Switch too depending on how you want to look beyond Day 1.

I've added Destiny 2: Beyond Light.

One great exclusive game is better than 100 indies/ports.

With Halo it would be a perfect launch, but now it will only be good/average.

Is exclusive a game genre, student debt forgiveness or what? 
There is no exclusive game on launch window of these consoles, that generates more enthusiasm than Cyberpunk. There will be nothing exclusive that will capture the masses like COD, FIFA and NBA2K. 
Remember, the most played game probably this year on PlayStation is Fall Guys, which probably have a better attach ratio than anything Sony released this year. 
The launch line up, at least for Xbox, is fantastic. 🙂

What was the great exclusive launch game on Switch? BOTW was multiplat and available on Wii U the same day.

I'd much rather them bring up Forza Horizon 5 into that window if it's anywhere near ready. I'd trust the team at Playgraound to get it prepared in time, whereas the Halo Infinite team needs as long as they can get.

If they're working on two different builds for Horizon 5 similar to Horizon 2, they can even push the Xbone version back a couple months, while prioritising getting it out early for SeriesX|S.



Not finalised I'm sure. The fact some of the games are already released makes that list rather sad.
