Video-game Wars Heat Up With Explosive 2008 Titles

SAN FRANCISCO (Dow Jones) - Video-game players who are accustomed to waiting for the holiday season to see the hottest new releases will get an early dose of yuletide joy this year -- in late April, to be exact.

That's when "Grand Theft Auto IV" will hit store shelves -- likely on its way to racking up sales of 10 million units or more by the end of the year, according to most estimates.

But game fanatics worried about spoiling their Christmas by mid-spring needn't worry. Compared to last year, 2008 will see a large slate of popular video game franchises spread throughout the year, along with some highly anticipated new properties that are designed to finally showcase the full capabilities of next- generation consoles such as the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii.

"This year is going to be huge, but not as big as 2009, and probably not as big as 2010," he said."

This quote is why the PS3 is gonna be kicking XBOT ass well beyond the PS4. (Just like the PS2 is still racking up sales and beating the 360 ALOT and the PS3 sometimes too)

There will be plenty of games to go around by the end of the year.

There are still games from 2007 I want to find time to play. I'll pick them up used when I see them (Ace Combat 6 and Eternal Sonata come to mind..).

The industry has become so large, and the stakes so high (budgets and potential profit), there are no gamers who are going to have anything less than plenty of choices.
