Confirmed PlayStation 3 Launch Games
Today, the day the PlayStation 3 launched in North America, I swept through three stores (Circuit City, Best Buy, and EB Games) and cataloged the games available on the shelves. Here is what I saw:
  1. Call of Duty 3
  2. Genji: Days of the Blade
  3. Madden NFL 07
  4. Marvel Ultimate Alliance
  5. Mobile Suit Gundam: Crossfire
  6. NBA 07
  7. NBA 2k7
  8. Need for Speed Carbon (only at EB Games)
  9. NHL 2k7
  10. Resistance: Fall of Man
  11. Ridge Racer 7
  12. Tiger Woods PGA Tour 07
  13. Tony Hawk's Project 8
  14. Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom
Have you seen any other games actually for sale today? If you see something in the next week or so, I'm willing to call that a "launch title" and make a call on a definitive list.

For the record, there were The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, Sonic, Full Auto 2, Rainbox Six: Vegas, and F.E.A.R boxes at EB Games, but they were just advertisements -- you couldn't actually buy those games yet.

As I finished up at Circuit City, my last stop, I picked up Bust-a-Move Deluxe for the PSP for $10 and chatted with the manager who was running the checkout. He said they got 6 PlayStation 3 units, which he volunteered was better than the 4 Xbox 360s they'd initially received in Fall 2005. Apparently people started camping out in front of his store on Sunday (12 November) and due to bad weather they'd gone ahead and given out vouchers on Wednesday night to the first six in line at that time. All six showed up on Friday to claim their machines.

I really don't see the point of anyone putting out any new games until Sony ships more machines.
