PGR3, King Kong, PDZ (when favourable reviews) and Kameo for me then.

Excellent launch line-up which caters for every taste:

If your a FPS fan you have Perfect Dark Zero, Quake 4 and Call of Duty 2.
If your an action/adventure fan you have Kameo, Condemned, Gun and King Kong
Racing fans have NFS:MW and PGR3
Sports fans have all those EA games

Finally we have a console launch with both quantity AND quality.

No Ridge Racer 6 for EU? Booo...
Commented on 2005-11-14 16:25:33
Having no NBA 2k makes the choice of basketball game easier. NBA Live 06 it is...
Commented on 2005-11-14 16:30:19
kinda weird that games WILL be launch title in the US but won't be a launch
title in Europe thats a week's difference :S
well i won't have a problem, i'm only getting Perfect Dark Zero for now and some Obivion + Saint's row later :D
Commented on 2005-11-14 16:30:28
No 2k for Europe, oh well...

No DOA4 although I heard it might come out next year in Europe.

Well I guess it's PDZ, COD2, Kameo and PGR3 for launch! :D

Thanks for the list BlimBlim.
Commented on 2005-11-14 16:43:01
PGR3 + Kameo + PDZ = best launch ever

FireWire: I would guess at localisation being the problem, EU games require a lot of translation!
Commented on 2005-11-14 17:10:03
PDZ + COD2 wohoo!! just gotta hold it together till saint's row.

yeah i know, the only thing is i really think it's bullshit. Translation SUCKS in my opinion. I'm dutch myself and whenever they translate a game or movie or whatever in dutch, it sucks.....

Examples:

They kinda only translate children's movies to dutch, wich i can imagine a little bit because the 4 year old's can't understand english. But when i'm on a trip to germany or france i kinda hate it how they translate movies/tv series, i saw terminator 2 on a german channel once, and i laughed my ass off: They had Arnie translated to german by some squeek voiced actor, who screemed: "ICH KOMME ZURUG" or how ever u spell that.

Same with translation of a game, i NEVER EVER use a translation for a game, cause if i do i would laugh my ass off just about how lame every character sounds.

Same with translating of windows, u got a dutch version of windows, man that shit is just plain irritating. I can imagine kids or non-english speaking folks (that's like 1% in holland :D) being happy about it. But for me (and i know ALLOT of people who share my opinion) it's just annoying and a waist of time.

I grew up watching english spoken movies/cartoons/games and whatever, that's how i kinda learned english (everybody get's english on school here but they teach u "moron" english) and i think children learn english much faster by watching and hearing english allot.

it's also irritating when they do subtitle's over here. I sometimes laugh really hard on how they translate it. For example; Star wars, you got R2D2, when his name is mentioned, the subtitle says: artoodeetoo :D

As a dutchie myself, I can totally agree with you. Dubbing sucks.
Commented on 2005-11-14 17:30:01
Ah! I got the very same problem with translations here in Denmark...
Commented on 2005-11-14 17:34:32
No DOA4 T_T well PDZ+Kameo suits it for me ^^

To bad some games aren't being launched in Europe I'm Dutch myself so
Commented on 2005-11-14 17:41:01
EU lineup: Due Germans, French, Dutch and all those who want games to be localized. We do not have dubbing in Finland, except for some children movies, and there is always non-dubbed version too.

As always with games published by another publisher in Europe (EA, instead of Namco), it's late. Same with DOA4.
