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.

Does Lococycle not look retarded to anyone else?
This launch line-up, in my opinion, isn't very impressive. The majority of the games here are multi-platform while some of the games are casual games that I have zero interest in (Just Dance and Skylanders? Ew.). The exclusives that the XBOX One has also aren't very good, in my opinion. The only one I find myself interested in is Forza Motorsport 5, yet i'd never purchase an XBOX One just for a game like Forza, especially when considering that I have Need for Speed Most Wanted U (even if they are different). Project Spark is the only other exclusive that I am interested in for the XBOX One, which isn't in this list. Although Project Spark looks good, i'm still not willing to fork over $500 on a XBOX One for it. In all, i'm unimpressed with the XBOX One launch line-up.
I'm almost positive it will be the same as Sony's Nov. 15 date.
Pretty nice list of launch titles.
Decent list of names.
I'm tired of going to a article about the Xbox 1 and all you see are Sony fanboy hypricrits trolling like they all ways do.they keep saying Microsoft doesn't have and exclusive when the fact is Microsoft have more exclusives then Sony will have the first few years the system is out and that's a fact.
Sony fanboys need to stop posting on articles about the xbox1 just to trash it because it's childish and pathetic.if they are not worried about the xbox1 and can't stand Microsoft then why do they take their time and post on xbox1 articles more then Xbox owners most of the time.the way they talk they shouldn't have time because unlike Microsoft Sony cares about them and giving them all kind of free games to play because Sony doesn't care about money just them
