I can't think of a console that had so many 'big' franchises at launch. nor can I think of a console with so many forum threads before its launch

Dragon Quest...a launch title!? Looks like I'll be getting a second game at launch now.

I think the PS3 is still ahead of the Wii, although in a negative way.

Wow, only 4 first party titles, all the others are 3rd party. I'm disapointed that Sonic won't be a launch title :(

If I get one it will be Wii + Zelda + Dragon Quest for me. Thats assuming the European list will be the same (which I sadly doubt).

Theres nothing else on that list that appeals to me.

i'll probably just get a wii with zelda, and maybe some virtual console game. idk a multiplayer game would be nice, and i would love metroid prime 3 but zelda will be taking all my singleplayer gaming time for a nice while

That's disapointing, looks like super monkey ball is the only party game at launch.

Since I have Zelda pre-ordered (and paid in full) from Gametop for my GameCube, I'm debating on whether or not to get the Wii version and just sell off my Zelda Gamecube version.

In any case, I hope that Wii Sports is a bundle in, that will be the only way I will get it.

I have about a $400 budget on launch day, and hope to get:

Wii system
Extra controller
Virtual Console Controller (maybe)
Metroid Prime 3
Red Steel (maybe)
Trauma Center (maybe)
Zelda (maybe)

Still debating over which things I should get :)

I'm actually interested in a fair number of those, though I don't know how many I'd buy at launch. I tend to wait for prices to go down.

That said, the ones I'll probably get at *some* point (provided nothing goes horribly, horribly wrong) are:

- Dragon Quest Swords
- Elebits
- Excite Truck
- Far Cry
- Legend of Zelda
- Marvel: Ultimate Alliance (superhero brawlers with friends are actually quite fun)
- Metal Slug Anthology (presuming they don't overprice it)
- Metroid Prime 3
- Rayman
- Red Steel
- Super Monkey Ball

...I'm disappointed that Mario, Sonic, and Smash Bros. aren't making it to launch. Wasn't that one of like the only three things they promised at E3 '05, that Smash Bros. would be a launch title? Ah well. I understand that it doesn't make good business sense to release everything at once, though. Plus, I'd rather have a properly done game than a game out earlier.

But of the launch list, I will probably buy Zelda with the system. Depending on my financial situation, I *may* also pick up one or two of the others. But there are a lot of factors that will influence the decision.

I'd rather have a good sonic game than a rushed piece of crap, so the fact that it's not a launch game doesn't bother me too much now that I think about it. I'll also be getting a 360 for the new Sonic game on that aswell. The videos look good, similar to Sonic Adventure for Dreamcast, which I really liked. This time with only Sonic as a playable character? That's good, I always find the others are a waste of time. Especially Knuckles, I hate having to search for the emeralds.

I fully expect some of those titles to drop off the list once it actually gets closer to launch.

Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz and Metal Slug Anthology jump out to me among that lot, Hope that the wii will get a Day of reckoning game and a Pro Evo/winning eleven in the future though.

...wow, your right! :o Damnit, I wish Blockbuster would start taking preorders. They won't take any until Nintendo gives them an official release date.

I will be looking at Zelda first (although I thought it was just a gamecube game that has optional features on the Wii?), and Probably Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles (assumeing its a new game and not a remake of the Gamecube version).

Also hopefully the next version won't require the Gameboy Advance, if it does forget it.
