 I thought it would be cool to have this info for US consoles all in one spot. I just added a few Sega consoles,  and will keep editing my first post to keep it updated. Eventually I'll add every console released in the US...  hopefully.
 
 Any info, corrections, suggestions, or additions would be zeh pwnz, but keep in mind that this is only original launch info (minus the last released game and console colors), and on the last releases, I'm not counting homebrews. Only games that were officially licensed, and sold in stores.

Great idea!  I won't be much help in this area, but it is great to see all of this information.  

I think I noticed two errors though.  I believe the last released game for the NES was Sunday Funday, and for the N64 I beleive it was Powerpuff Girls:  Chemical Xtraction.  Don't quote me on that though.

using you as a moral compass is kinda weird. It's like asking a thief if it's okay to steal something.

Actually Tony Hawk 3 was the last game for N64.  It came out in August of 02.  Caught a lot of people by surprise.

-The Jag was released in Dec. '93, but only in NY and SF I believe.  Sometime early '94 was the nationwide launch.

-I think I remember the 32X being $159.00 at launch not $179.00.  Also think DOOM and V.R. Racing were launch titles.  But not positive.

-You have Defender 2000 as a launch title for the Jag CD but it's a cart game...

-N64 was released in late August 1996, not late Sept.

-N64 was $199.99 at launch not $299.99

I'm still trying to determine if this should be considered a home brew title or not. The only info I can get on how to purchase it, is to order it directly from their site. If it is seen on a store shelf, I'll list it.


...  and thanks for the corrections, they will be fixed after this post.

On the 32X Launch I've heard there were NO titles available for the console until after a over week of it sitting on the shelf. I don't know if it was like this nationwide or not, so I still don't know anything for sure.
