    There are a lot of games there that I'm eager to get my hands on, but I think I'm most looking forward to Mirrors Edge - that game looks stunning beyond belief, I hope it plays as fluid as it moves

    I'm really looking forward to Mirrors Edge - It just sounds like a really fun game, and will be the first non-violence focused game I've ever bought for a console..

    That said, Fallout 3, RA3, they both look fun too.

    So many awesome-sounding games, so little game-playing time :(

    I'm with the bit-tech here, there's not as many OMG must have games here, like bioshock, but there is a fresher variety i think. I've been largely unexcited by this years release schedule and gone quite retro but when i get my hands on Civ DS....well....I'll see you after one more turn...

    You're missing out on Gears Of War Two!

    And Fable 2, but that one may just be me!

    Argh... Such a massive lineup of awesome games. I'm definately going to fail my degree this winter... :(

    [edit] By the way, if anyone fancies watching more Mirror's edge footage, gametrailers.com have more footage, and in HD too. :D

    I would be looking forward to Fable 2, but the promises Molyneux made about Fable 1 and what was actually in Fable 1 are still pretty raw for me. That and his constant talking crap (Okay, saying in a few interviews, as if it was actually something worth the time) shortly after the game (Sand goose anyone?) I know not much has been promised, if anything, but I'm still very dubious and am waiting for the actual game before I get my hopes up.

    I'd say it's a given that 90% of people are going to be scoring GoW2, it can go without saying :D

    Failing for a good cause, though.

    A very good cause.

    Greetings!

    Since Mirror Edge will be published by EA, what kind of DRM infection will there be?

    Lol, do you ever talk about anything else? Who cares what the publisher is if the games good? And we all get that you have issue with DRM, but I imagine you're going to be very thin on the ground for AAA titles to play if you never allow any kind of DRM into your system. Even if you do only get to play it three times because the DRM doesn't work how it's supposed to, it's still worth it for the £15 you can get most games for off eBay the moment they come out. Hell, two cinema tickets will set you back that much anyway, and you don't get to keep anything forever when you go to that.

    LittleBigPlanet looks awesome fun, but not got a ps3, so i'll be round tad's house...

    Trackmania DS looks almost spot on to the pc's version in gameplay, the graphics look nice, and it looks really fluid! I just think it won't be as fun as if it were fully online, playable with 30+ people!
