It's not even a sixth of the way into the year 2008 but it's never to early to speculate what the big popular selling games are going be.
i doubt brutal legend will sell well and NG2 is excellent, but it isn't exactly "mass-market appeal" material due to it's ultra hardcore nature
a fps.. And once again speaking of fps where the hell is killzone 2 or resistance 2?
overall, the list is disgustingly "weak sauce" if you ask me.
I agree man. DMC4 has already sold 2 million copies so it is well on its way to becoming one of the best selling games of the year. And Resistance 2 has enough star power to sell very well to a PS3 install base that should be pretty large in Fall 2008.
Very incomplete list indeed. And why do the PS3 exclusives get such a simple one line description?
I just love these articles. Mmmmm... you can just smell the fumes rising in the air as the next flame war approaches. Hopefully, it will happen soon. p.s I'm serious, I love flame wars.
I was expecting to see Soul Calibur IV on that list
Logical choices are notably absent. Oh, and DS and PSP games don't make an appearance at all.
KZ2 and R2 would also be on the list but i believe LBP has a better chance considering that it markets to everyone so it should have a bigger chance of selling more. GT is gt and MGS is MGS. For x360 too human could also make it but its a new IP compare to Fable and NG2.
too human has been in development too long. It might go big, but the pressure for it to deliver is unbelievable. If it isn't amazing, it will flop. From what I've herd and read, the previews have ben mixed at best.
is base on his opinion and the games that he likes...
for the title of best selling game of 08....i'm seeing brawl, gta4, and mgs4 fighting for that crown.
Gears 2 will also definitely make that list even if it's late in the year.
Christmas rush would definitely help to push Gears onto the top ten best sellers list.
Best selling games of 2008. SSBB, GTAIV, MGS4, and GeoW 2. Current best selling game, DMC4 with 2 million copies sold!
biggest sellers of 2008: splinter cell 5 grand theft auto 4 metal gear solid 4 gears of war 2 fable 2 all points bulletin too human gran turismo 5 halo wars ninja gaiden 2 tekken6/soul calibur 4 rare's banjo 3 and that's a wrap !!!!!!!! http://www.gamepro.com
you can't really put an MMO in a normal sales list you can count it's subscriptions and compare it to other MMO's but you can't put it in a list with regular games and its obvious you just went for the 360 exclusives, without even thinking things through for example- NG2 only appeals to a very hardcore crowd and therefore it's sales can't escalate into top ten lists or anything and you missed the real sellers- the next NFS game, madden, fifa, pro evo, COD5, super smash brothers brawl, the next GH game, the next tony hawk and skate games that was a list for hardcore gamers like us- not the mass-market and it wasn't even a good hardcore list- it was so obvious you were just stuffing 360 exclusives in without thinking about things like Res 2 inevitably selling way more than say.. banjo 3, because it's getting way more attention
but!!!!!!!!!!!! u mist out resistance i think that will be in the top 5 bought games
any best selling games list that doesnt have wii fit on it is not valid
for such a delicious comment like that. Bubbles, take it; its time that you properly armed yourself.
If the first has sold about 2.5 million units, I think it's a safe bet that R2 could sell 4 million given how good the first was and how the PS3 install base will increase a lot too.
thats more stating the obvious than predictions
Killzone 2 and Resistance 2 and MGS4 and Gran Turismo 5 and Little Big pLANERT ARE ALL GOING TO BE massive HITS. Sony is waiting for E3 to UNLEASH THE BEAST, they know what their doing. EVERYONE wants Resistance 2 ,Killzone 2 and MGS4. The seriously are going to be soooo BIG.
RFOM2 and KZ2...
In no particular order or console preference: Gears 2 MGS4 GTAIV SSB: Brawl Fable 2 Killzone 2 Too Human Resistance 2 SW: Force Unleashed Ninja Gaiden 2 LittleBigPlanet (? Not sure how this one will do, but it looks promising) Barbie Horse Adventures...c'mon, you KNOW you want it! (Just kidding!) BTW, since when is Gears an "FPS," as the author said...?
"Gears of War 2
it is simply the next big FPS shooter of the 2008 holiday season"
Gears of War 2 is a 3rd Person Shooter
"PS3 Exclusives Gran Turismo 5 When this game finally ships driving fans with PS3s will line up for this one. Little Big Planet It’s looking like a very innovating and creative game. Metal Gear Solid IV The fog of hype surrounding this game make Star Wars look like an film festival flick. It better deliver. Xbox 360 Exclusives Ninja Gaiden 2 Oh man this game is looking sweet. Plus it has ninjas flipping out and killing people on a massive bloody scale. Fable 2 It’s looking like a mind-blowing simulated adventure game. It’s got multiplayer co-op and a rich world that personally is much more entertaining than some damn MMORPG. Fable was one of the best Xbox one games ever made, despite not being a Legend of Zelda game, Gears of War 2 it is simply the next big FPS shooter of the 2008 holiday season, plus it has more chainsaws. I would bet money that Gears of War 3 is also on the drawing boards over at Epic/Microsoft. I wouldn't be surprised to see Epic and Microsoft get even closer if you know what I mean." I don't know you guys but I think it's biased, the poster don't even mention KZ2, resistance 2 not even The agency
yeah, but then again this is coming from someone who cant tell the difference between an FPS and a TPS and i said before- you can't really include MMO's in these type of lists, they just work differently
everyone is forgetting that Wii Fit will outsell almost all of these titles. I hate WiiFit's idea and stuff, but the casual Wii owners that make up a good third or more of the next-gen gaming market love it.
The MGS games haven't sold all that well, considering the number of PS2 owners out there. Just a thought. The last one only sold like 3.6 million and the second one only 7.x million out of 120 million PS2 owners.
No game in the ps2 ever sold well including gta
I'm just saying that I don't believe MGS will sell 5 million copies. I could be wrong.
Ninja Gaiden 2
Wiifit (is this really a "game"?)
a pokemeon game (if there's one coming out this year)
2 or three other DS games (i don't know any DS games, i really hate the DS and the WII)
cooking mama 3
devil may cry 4 (which has already sold an amazing 2 million copies world wide)
and seriously, i don't think MGS4 will make it to the top 10; no matter how good the game's going to be, all the games listed above will outsell it
Street fighter IV
Soul Calibur IV
Dead or Alive 5
Devil May cry 4 (i haven't bought it yet)
Final Fantasy XIII
Ninja Gaiden II
Well if you add pc its game over with SC2
