Not to sound too old and senile, but I remember way back when, system's used to launch with only a few games available, maybe 5 or so. Unlike other sentimental coots, I for one am happy that such days are well and gone. Case in point with Microsoft, which today during GamesCom revealed their lineup for its next-gen Xbox One.

There are 23 games in all. It's easily one of the most diverse launch lineups seen in home consoles. Almost all major video game genres are represented - fighter, various sports titles, shooter, slasher, etc. You can check out the complete list below, all neatly alphabetized for you OCD types:

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag (Ubisoft, Ubisoft)
Battlefield 4 (DICE, Electronic Arts)
Call of Duty: Ghosts (Infinity Ward, Activision)
Crimson Dragon (Grounding/Land Ho!, Microsoft Studios)
Dead Rising 3 (Capcom Vancouver, Microsoft)
FIFA 14 (EA Sports, Electronic Arts)
Fighter Within (AMA Ltd., Ubisoft)
Forza Motorsport 5 (Turn 10 Studios, Microsoft Studios)
Just Dance 2014 (Ubisoft Paris, Ubisoft)
Killer Instinct (Double Helix, Microsoft Studios)
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes (TT Games, Warner Bros. Interactive)
Lococycle (Twisted Pixel, Microsoft Studios)
Madden NFL 25 (EA Sports, Electronic Arts)
NBA 2K14 (Visual Concepts, 2K Sports)
NBA LIVE 14 (EA Sports, Electronic Arts)
Need for Speed: Rivals (Ghost Games, Electronic Arts)
Peggle 2 (Popcap, Electronic Arts)
Powerstar Golf (Zoe Mode, Microsoft Studios)
Ryse: Son of Rome (Crytek, Microsoft Studios)
Skylanders: Swap Force (Vicarious Visions, Activision)
Watch Dogs (Ubisoft Montreal, Ubisoft)
Zoo Tycoon (Frontier Developments Ltd., Microsoft Studios)
Zumba Fitness: World Party (Zoë Mode, Majesco)

Microsoft's PR hiccups certainly cost them a bit in its early stages, but with a lineup like this, things should turn around quickly once the Xbox One hits gamers' sweaty hands. An exact date still hasn't been given for the One's release, but is die to arrive in the U.S. sometime this November. It was recently delayed in eight European markets, where it won't arrive until sometime in 2014.

The ball is in your court now, Sony.
