GameStop, the online site for several gaming retail chains, began taking order for the XBox system, games and peripherals today.
Even though Microsoft hasn't released a list of titles that will be available at launch, GameStop posted a list of titles that they are taking pre-orders for, as well as a list of launch games. That list includes the following: AZURIK: RISE OF PERATHIA, DARK SUMMIT, DEAD OR ALIVE 3, FUZION FENNZY, HALO, MAD DASH RACING, MADDEN NFL 2002, NASCAR THUNDER 2002, NEW LEGENDS, NFL FEVER 2002, NHL HITZ, NIGHTCASTER, ODDWORLD: MUNCH'S ODYSSEY, PROJECT GOTHAM RACING, SIMPSON'S ROAD RAGE, STAR WARS STARFIGHTER SPECIAL EDITION, and TONY HAWK'S PRO SKATER 2X.
Also shown on GameStop were titles such as HITMAN 2, LEGACY OF KAIN: BLOOD OMEN 2, SALT LAKE 2002, THUNDERSTRIKE: OPERATION PHOENIX, and RACE NATION, none of which were previously confirmed for the XBox.
Whether or not this is the official launch list from Microsoft has yet to be confirmed. The XBox will be released on November 8th, 2001.
