IGN PlayStation 2008 preview - The hottest upcoming games and predictions

2008 is set to be a great year for the PlayStation 3 and PSP. The PlayStation 2 even has a few more big titles up its sleeve. The second full year of the PlayStation 3's lifespan should be a huge one, as developers are really starting to nail down what the system is capable of and a huge number of exclusive and major cross-platform titles are set to hit stores this year. With games like Metal Gear Solid 4, Devil May Cry 4, Grand Theft Auto IV, Resistance 2 and much, much more promising release this year, PlayStation gamers have a lot to look forward to.

The list of IGN's predictions (details are available on the ninth page of the article):
- Sony Will Go on a Buying Spree.
- The PlayStation Store Will See a Major Overhaul.
- PlayStation Packaging or Price Changes.
- Home Doesn't Take Off.
- Sony's Lineup Dominates This Year's Holiday Season.

bold my friend. Very bold.

Personally I'm really looking forward to Home, it looks really fun and a great medium. I have a feeling it will become big, but only time will tell.

they predicted last year that mgs4 would be on xbox 360 which turned out to be wrong but nevertheless both IGN and 1up make bold predictions

wouldn't be surprised if Slant Six gets picked up a few months after they drop SOCOM Confrontation. they've worked with sony closely for awhile now, PSP engine for the Syphon Filter games and now two SOCOM games. pretty sure sony will extend an offer to them at some point.

Can't be argued that Sony has the best-looking line-up for this year. Personally, I could do without Home, but I think it'll be one of those things that I'll use occasionally cause it's free anyways.

mgs4 ,killzone ,ff13 and resistance 2 are just too massive

"Nintendo has already released a Mario, Metroid and Zelda title for the system, and Smash Bros. will be out relatively soon, leaving its must-have library as old news. Microsoft has a strong lineup, but most of those games are cross-platform. Sony, on the other hand, will have a bevy of killer exclusives hit the system throughout the year, and especially around the holidays.

Resistance 2 is already scheduled for the end of the year, and we expect Killzone 2 to release around the same time. We also expect to hear that Infamous, SOCOM: Confrontation and, hopefully, Gran Turismo 5 will launch around the same time as well. But we don't expect that to be the end: Sony will pull out all the stops and get MotorStorm 2 and God of War III out the door before 2008 is over as well, at least in demo form. And remember, we don't even know about the E3 announcements yet...Nintendo has already released a Mario, Metroid and Zelda title for the system, and Smash Bros. will be out relatively soon, leaving its must-have library as old news. Microsoft has a strong lineup, but most of those games are cross-platform.
