Thats a pretty decent launch line up and next year will be even better when Halo 5, Titanfall, Destiny and whatever else they have up their sleeves for 2014 gets released.

Funny stuff already: I popped into a GameStop here and there was some guy talking about starting an online petition against Microsoft (what, another one?) because US gamers weren't getting a free Madden or FIFA with their console. Yeesh.

Of course, that petition will go nowhere fast, but it's funny how some feel entitlement when one territory gets a MAJOR freebie that another one won't. It'll sure sell consoles overseas, though...
