In the November 28, 2005 issue of time there is a “8 Great XBox 360 Games” section. I happen to like the “7 books you gotta read” or “Music this year worth listening too” sections but talking about the eight great XBox 360 is laughable. There were less than 20 games available at the time (okay, I’m not a journalist and I didn’t look up that number but I expect you to) . . . how can 8 be great? Launch titles? No way.
I know you must get this 100 times a day but: How much did Microsoft pay you? Seriously. And I realize that this isn’t something that most people would care about even if you did get paid but it just makes me wonder what can be bought at Time (new product hype) and what can’t be.
I’m not MS hater either. I like Microsoft. They overcharge for stuff but what’s really cool is that there are alternatives that are getting as good or better than what MS has to offer. But I have an XBox and I’ll get an XBox 360 when I have more time to play. But there is no such thing as eight great games for a launch system. You fell into the hype.
