The lights are on
Following its pre-Gamescom 2013 Xbox One showcase, Microsoft confirmed the complete list of titles currently slated for launch. There are 23 games on the list covering a cross-section of genres.
Here's what we know about the launch dates. Watch Dogs is currently slated for November 19 on current-generation consoles. It's not inconceivable that Ubisoft would release the next generation version first, but it's unlikely that Activision would release Call of Duty into the wild on Xbox One before Xbox 360. Any later than November 19, and Microsoft would mess up retailer bundles that include Watch Dogs, as some people might choose not to wait. This likely puts the release date as early as November 5, and probably no later than November 19. (Admittedly, this only narrows the window slightly.)Microsoft corporate vice president Phil Harrison told us today that we should not expect a launch date for the Xbox One this week, which means the company is waiting for Sony. We expect a PlayStation 4 release confirmation at the company's Gamescom 2013 press conference this evening.

Not that impressive. Most of these games can be found on last-gen consoles.
Not bad lineup, i mean, i believe 8 of those games are MS exclusives, lets see what Sony is going to show, hope they have new IPs as well.
The games I'd want are Crimson Dragon, Dead Rising 3, and RYSE.
I think Sony will announce their release date as early November, they announced their console earlier than Microsoft and if tests turned out to be OK, they can go for a surprise and push a week earlier if enough games release in that period.
Ammmm...There are 23 games on te list...
Many are multi-platform, so in reality PS4 will probably have just as many. It's going to be quite an exciting fall and holiday for releases.
This is a fairly strong launch line-up. There's a few games there I definitely see myself buying and a couple that I'm considering.
Meh, Crimson Dragon is the only thing exciting on the list, and that doesn't even look like a must-play. I don't expect Sony's to be much better. Launch line-ups are never really fantastic anyway, lol
Pretty boring line up
Both systems will release early November, I'd say the 5th, and that will allow them time to ship more systems in time for Black Friday in the U.S. Not sure what they might do in Europe or Asia, not my market.
I also don't think you're going to see many bundles until Black Friday in the U.S.
Either way doesn't matter to me, I'm not even considering either console until late next year anyway. I think the first year is going to see drastic changes because I believe they are rushing the systems because they know they can just send out updates and patches to fix problems. Just hope the early problems are not hardware related.
There is literally nothing here I want for XBone. The only games I'm interested in are Watchdogs and Assassins Creed, which I'll either get for current gen or WiiU, and Peggle 2, which I'll wait for iOS.
not a bad launch. Dead Rising and Forza are the real stars here, with a few cross generation games and your usual casual stuff to round out the variety. Pretty much what I expect from a launch.
after going over the list and making my own list. there's only 5 only on xbox one games. most of the next gen launch games I can play on my PS3 and all the only on xbox one games I have no intrest in except for Killer Instinct and i'm not buying a system just 4 one game
Can't wait for DR 3
And most of them are on current-gen consoles, that's disappointing.
Killer Instinct is what interests me most on this list.
