GamePro profiles the 25 most-promising titles expected this year.
Seriously. Look at this list. PS3's got the games. The big games everyone's waiting for and it doesn't even mention the PS3 Rockstar Exclusive.
agreed... although Cory Barlog was mostly responsible for GoW 2...jaffe oversaw it, but was also working on 2 other games at the time... SCE has enough aweomse guys internally though that it won't matter...GoW 3 will destroy...end of discussion... and yeah...I hope they show A LOT of Resistance 2 and Killzone 2...those are what I am looking forward to the most currently...
That was nice, I like the "why we want it" and "why it could suck" part.
Sony needs to go behind team ico and just remake shadow of collosus with side quests for PS3. That way team ico can make new ip and then we can replay one of the greatest games of all time:D It has to stay true to the open world nature so i wonder how the little enemies would work
They forgot White Knight Story, Infamous, War Devil,Socom confronttion
Sonarus, I am a fanboy, but that is ludicrous. It woudl deatrct from the fights if they were quests. You naturally have an objective to destory all 16 Colossi right from the start. If you then find, that eatign the curse fruits increase your health, and the curse tails of certain lizards, you can go hunting, and forraging. No remakes, maybe a re-release, otherwise it will lose it's art direction too. I ahte people who suggest a remake though, especially changing things, appreciate it for what it is, not what it isn't. EDIT: And this article is stupid, it's called ICo 3 or TRICO, and will not be about slayign giant beasts. So too bad, let them come up with somethign else.
Honeslty though I want every game on that list except the 1-2 Wii games. I do want Zelda though : )..seriously though PS3 has some cool looking games coming 8D
who are you trying to convince? exactly. Now wake me up when Sony actually delivers. This is waiting....
XD Read the list. Looks awesome : )
a better question is why are you trying to convince yourself that Sony has no games. If you've even played a PS3 game you'd know Sony can deliver.
This is probably the best "Most Anticipated Games of E3" article yet.
still annoying that halo wars was so high up on the list (or was that in no particular order)...but its great to see StarCraft 2 on it... drives me nuts when sites/mags keep stuttering about halo wars, and fail to mention the unmitigated king of the genre finally getting a sequel this fall...
Edit...just found out Starcraft 2 won't be at E3 anyway...Apperantly Gamepro was as misinformed as i was...
I'm surprisingly uninterested in alot of those titles. I'm only looking forward to FFXIII, Fallout 3, and RE5 (and the possbile Shadow of the Colossus 2). I think games like KZ2 and LBP are dried out because of the sheer amount of hype for them... I mean GeOW 2, look at it, so much hype, so little change. I think Sony can dish out something like last year (Sony owned last year's E3), like exciting news for Home or something (which I'm also tired of hearing about), but they better not delay more games, this is the reason I'm slowly getting less interested in LBP, KZ2 and Home. Having said that, I think Sony definitely has the best lineup this year, there's nothing that can stop them now with the real games coming out. they better not screw up at this E3, please Sony, no more "giant enemy crabs".
Bioshock 2 coming to 360 AND PS3? Damn..that's gotta hurt the xbot pride.
its not confirmed in anyway...but it was very apperant that MS simply paid for timed exclusitivity on the franchise...and being that the game really didn't sell all that well for the 360 compared to some other exclusives...it is pretty unlikely to happen again...
what will hurt more is when Mass Effect gets officially announced.
I see a bunch of multiplatform games on that list and 1 possible/maybe Ps3 game in SOTC2. Kepe holding that breath guys. Keep holding that breath, cause like Leslie Nelson before you I'm sure you can hold it for a looooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooooong time!
wondering how many know what movie?
the image used for this article just summed up my most anticipated E3 showing. ;D
Pretty good list. Just about everything I'm hoping to see as well, except I'd throw the rumored new Twisted Metal game in my list.
*Why it could suck: Because a rumored "Donkey Kong" game, while good, would not be "fantastic."* Hit that nail right on the head imo. If Donkey Kong is the hardcore game Nintendo is talking about, I'm going to be a bit disappointed.
isn't that an arcade game? halo 4 should be up instead.
what do you mean 'arcade game'..as in it will go into an actual Arcade?... its a real time strategy game designed from the ground up for a console controller...I like the genre for the most part, or at least I like Starcraft...so, in that sense I hope it turns out great and sells well...will get devs like blizzard to possibly look at consoles for SC 2, and whatever else comes along eventually... but its also based in the halo universe...which means that 'manliness' will not be present in any way, shape, or form... and everything will have a heavy layer of pink and purple slathered everywhere...for that reason, I currently have little interest in it...
If there was just one unconfirmed for the PS3 that I would want to see at E3, it would be Team ICO's next PS3 project... I just HAVE to know what they are working on next. And God of War 3 is going to rock even if Jaffe isn't working on it, Cory Barlog did a damn good job of Game Director for God of War 2 and the game turned out just as good as the first, and there's no doubt that God of War 3 will be just as good or even better with or without Jaffe.
god of war 3 is gunna be badass
I just dont see the draw to God of War for SOny fans. They all play exactly the same and we all know how Sony fanboys cry if a game is not completely original. I guess its just more proof of how bias SOny fans are. 3 totally different Mario games is complete trash but release the exact same game 3 times over and all is cool, as long as it carries the Sony name.
I agree and disgagree. They may all play exactly the same. But why change something that is perfect and not broken. It would be very hard to improve on the games (except graphics, which btw is no slouch) as they already are widely accepted as the best of it's genre. Just take a look at all the professional reviews.
that screen shot of fable looks absolutely amazing. Im fairly pro sony and wouldnt buy an xbox...but that game just from that one image makes me want to get an xbox. Keeping in mind Zelda OOT is 1 of my all time favs.
Final Fantasy XIII (Tentative for PS3)-- didnt know it was "tentative" for ps3, does this hint towards a 360 release?
...to be released, only the time for that release has yet to be determined. There's no way FFXIII gets released on anything but the PS3 imo. I'd bet money even that Sony wrapped up exclusivity on that one before the PS3 even debuted. All of the Square Enix RPG's being recently and in the near future on the Xbox 360 are pretty much the consolation prize, while Nintendo is getting DS remakes and obscure, off the wall RPG's from them for the Wii.
why would Gamepro be the only one's who knew?, and trust me if FFXIII went multiplat Shane & Aaron would be shouting from the top of a mountain.
i have to disagree with your meaning of tentative, see as none of them have been release or state dates... i understand that ff has been a exclusive but this seems to say theirs a possibility otherwise.
"Tentative" caught my eye also. I would say "tentative" would be soc2 and some of the other rumored games. Not a game well into development like ffx111. Either something is up or they're fishing for some controversy of some kind. I think if it did come to the 360 it would be a year after the PS3 release. Like when FFXIII versus comes to PS3 they might release FF on 360. Thats "IF" a real "BIG" "IF" it goes to the 360 at all which I doubt.
definition of tentative is Not fully worked out, concluded, or agreed on; provisional: tentative plans.
very,very nice list gp
i really couldnt agree more with that list. Look at all the great games coming up. Being that I only own a PS3 I am particularly excited for GOW3, Shadow 2, R2, and little big planet. For 360 owners, also a great list of games coming up.
Little Big Planet has enemies... Media Molecule has already stated this.
Jaffe was not involved in GOW2 , cory balrog directed it , get your facts straight Gamepro.
And it was still one hell of a game. I have confidence that GOW 3 will be amazing.
Empire: Total War is my most anticipated game by far.
The E3 hype Machine begins... I`ve seen my share of cutscenes @ past E3`s. I have no doubt that There are gonna be some great games, but 1 or 2 of these big titles are not gonna live up to the hype- Let the buyer beware-
a dwn loadable game.
this is a good list you have no idea how stoked i am for Team Ico Project God of War 3 and Final Fantasy theyre why i bought a ps3 (and mgs4) plus theres resistance spore starcraft 2 littlebig killzone bioshock2 and zelda this will be a fantastic gaming year
gets lived up to. it has, but more likely than not, sleeper hits are the better of the games out there.
i want SOTC:2 too but " Why we want it: Because Shadow of the Colossus was the best PS2 game ever. Perhaps better than most Zelda games, even. " ...how can you compare it to zelda?... there is a horsey, there is sword, there is a girl who needs to be saved. but no Items, dungeon/puzzles whatsoever(aside from finding a way to kill the boss). They both play very different.... Anyway nice list.
When SOTC came out everyone compared it to Zelda, even before they played it. Haters said it wouldn't be as good and Shadow supporters said it would be much better. These game will forever be attached at the hip.... for good or bad. Both franchises are classics.
Good great list. Sony is doing a great job keeping the new Team Ico project under wraps. No leaked info, pics nada. Good job Sony but now is the time to show it off, please don't disappoint me.
Great list, but I still want the next Kingdom Hearts. Hopefully it will remain Playstation exclusive. Square needs to finish up FF:XIIIv and get started on it right away. Or at the very least dish out a couple of pics or concept art for it. I will continue to hope. <My reasoning before disagreeing please: 1. This is because of my own personal controller preference. 2. Exclusives are always a better quality then multiplats games. (this is my opinion only and is not anyway based in fanboyism as I am well aware it could come to 360 or Wii and will happily get it on whatever console it debuts on)>
Why we want it: Because Shadow of the Colossus was the best PS2 game ever. Why we want it: Because Resident Evil 4 was the best overall game released last generation, boasting immersive gameplay, clever combat, and ridiculously good-looking graphics. WTF? Can both of these statements be true at the same time?
