I don't need to tell you that this is a massive list for the launch of a platform. (Said in the voice of the late, great Billy Mays) But wait, there's more! There are also a ton of accessories launching day and date with the system. Pricing has also been revealed and memory cards aren't as expensive as initially thought.
