    I was thinking of buying a 360 instead of a wii, but then I realized that the 360 has a serious lack of platformers. Are there any platformers for the Xbox 360?

    crackdown is kind of a platformer, the best part of it is running and jumping

    Kameo and viva pinata are both nice, and cheap too nowadays. [​IMG] But I guess viva pinata doesn't really count as a platformer.

    Thx for the replies, but I decided to not purchase a 360. Platformers are my favorite type of games and 360 barely has any.

    Honestly, platformers are pretty rare on ALL the new systems, especially good ones.

    You can count on Nintendo for a few great first-party games (mostly starring an Italian plumber), Sony will probably have another good Ratchet & Clank title, and perhaps MS will get something besides Kameo from Rare (if they get the new Banjo game right)... But the fact is platform games have been growing scarce ever since the end of the 16-bit era. In the GC/PS2/XBOX generation there wasn't ANY system with more than five A+ platform titles, if that.

    Unless you count the Virtual Console, just don't expect a large number of good platformers on any current console.
