Oh Look! - I found the gaming holiday meltdown week.

Mass Effect (X360) Release Date: Nov 20, 2007 - In a diverse interstellar society, you must overcome other species' distrust of humans and battle a force that threatens to end all life.

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune (PS3) Release Date: Nov 19, 2007 - This new game from Naughty Dog features jungle adventures in a Pitfall-esque setting.

Rock Band (X360, PS3) Release Date: Nov 20, 2007 - Rock out with your friends as you perform music from the world's biggest rock artists using drum, bass, lead guitar, and microphone peripherals.
New Video Games - New Game Releases - New Video Game Releases

Those are only the first three entries on Gamespot's "New Releases Week of Nov 18, 2007" chart. Yes, yes, "Black Friday" blah, blah I know why it happens but still . . . .

Sadly I think the big loser here for me may be the PS3 - I already have Rock Band (for the 360) preordered and I can totally see buying one of the others as a more traditional single-player experience, but buying two other games in the same week as Rock Band is right out. Uncharted versus Mass Effect is a tough call. On the one hand, I traditionally don't like Bioware's console games (KOTOR, Jade Empire). I think Uncharted has a much better pedigree. On the other hand, Mass Effect looks really good, and I think Bioware has been improving on the console front.
