Will the XBOX 360 Have Enough Games This Holiday?

GamersPlatform Writes:

"We saw yesterday how many games the Playstation 3 has to offer this Holiday season and from the looks of the gamers, it will be a great Holiday season for the Playstation 3. Now, we're going to take a look at Playstation 3's competition, the XBOX 360.

The XBOX 360 has improved a lot compared to the original XBOX. The support of third party developers has increased and it somehow managed to get what the Playstation 3 has, which is the exclusivity of games. That trend slowly stopped as the Playstation 3 picked up sales all around the world making the exclusive games the XBOX 360 ported to the Playstation 3. It's a matter of time until the Playstation 3 is back on top with the exclusives. The XBOX 360 is on the lead with the Playstation 3 in a matter of 4,000,000 sales worldwide. The XBOX 360 has been out for almost 3 years while the Playstation 3 has been out for 2 years..."

What about all year
The Answer is NO !!!

DavidMacDougall3361d ago

Its on its last legs the 360 will be dead years before the 720 hits shelves

theKiller3361d ago

again i agree with u!

360 didnt have games all year except for few exclusive FLOPS!

Montrealien3360d ago

And I'll be broke again this year.

StephanieBBB3361d ago

yes it will! more than enough =)

But imo it's not normal to have as many games as the ps3 has this holiday... Why must sony have so god damn many developers??!?

KobeT243361d ago

****!!!!

Why would Microsoft release huge games within 1 week of each other. I dont have $200 dolars to shell out on video games. And with the PS3's line up.....****!!!!!!

Lord Vader3360d ago (Edited 3360d ago )

Well, it's about time Sony had some games. 2007 was a year of watching my PS3 collect dust for the most part... I'm glad that there are more Sony titles out this year.

But, I dont think it'll be a bad holiday for the 360, both Fable & Gears2 look very promising... & I can't wait to play Left for Dead myself.... & it may be multi, but after Gears, the game I want most this year is Fallout 3.

BabyStomper50003360d ago

Fallout 3 is at the very top of my list above LBP even.

Porno Decepticon3360d ago

Other than a list full of flops, you got like..... Gears of War 2, so yeah, they're definitely in trouble.

Excalibur3360d ago (Edited 3360d ago )

Yeah I'm sure most if not all these will flop.

Rolls Eyes and walks away from such a stupid comment.

Whatever system you own, there will be plenty to play.

witchking3360d ago

Not to mention the multi-platform games: Rock Band 2, Guitar Hero World Tour, Rise of the Argonauts, Far Cry 2, Prince of Persia, Tomb Raider Underworld.

So in addition to having a great exclusive lineup, there's also a set of games that are multi-plat that will rock. And if all you have is a 360, then there's gaming goodness for months.

mikeslemonade3360d ago

The 360 has games that cater to the people who own the 360 already. The only thing that will sell a 360 to someone is the price and maybe if they want to play GTA4 or Madden 09 for just $260(system and game). The 360 doens't have a system seller like Little Big Planet.

BattleAxe3360d ago (Edited 3360d ago )

Gears 2 and Fable 2 will be huge, but Left for Dead if you've seen the gameplay videos looks repetative and graphically inferior(average game at best). Banjo will be a flop for sure and the other games on the list I've never heard of.

@mikeslemonade, I totally agree. SOCOM is a system seller as is LBP, Resistance2 and going into next year Killzone 2 and possibly Infamous. MotorStorm might move some units aswell.(played the demo yesterday and it kicks @ss)

shutupandplay3360d ago

Give me L4D over resistance 2 any day. At least with L4D it`s something new...resistance 2 is another generic run and gun, sci-fi FPS + more players. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOW! It`s halo 3! Tripled in size!

Megatron083360d ago

Really have to laugh at the pathtic SDF fanboy spin on this. They were all screamming back in 06 wait till the ps3 comes out and it flop when it was release. Then in 07 it was wait till x mas 07 will be the year of the ps3 and when every exclusive it has got midcore reviews at best. They started saying wait till 08 , 08 will be the real year of the ps3. Then Ms cuts the price announces GoW2 , Fable 2, Banjo Kazooie and Lips. Fable 2, GoW 2 and Lips (Lips isnt proven by name but all music games have proven theirself) all proven system sellers. Banjo Kazooie is a proven AAA game

LPB is a joke as a system seller only harcore ps3 fanboys even know about this game. Plus the average joe will have no interest in it. Resistance2 is a genic FPS that no one who doesnt have a ps3 already even cares about. Better luck in 09 with that year of the ps3 crap.

ArthurLee3360d ago (Edited 3360d ago )

Resistance 2 will be in the same Sh!thole league as the first one. Only a PS3 Fanboy would praise that garbage game so much.

I will be playing 4 games like a maniac, Gears 2 , Fallout 3 , Left 4 Dead & GH4. LBP is a possibility. My PS3 gets used for 1.Playing Blu ray movies & DVD's, 2. Playing Music CD's , 3. Games maybe once a year.

So go pre-buy Iron Man and The Dark Knight on blu ray and keep defending that TERRIBLE POS Gaming system and it's Sh!tty games!

VF34EJ253360d ago

Rightdare quit acting like you own a PS3. Some of you guys aren't fooling anyone.

If you have a 360, then enjoy it. But don't hate on the PS3 just because it has it's own awesome games. From what I've seen from friends that have 360's or PS3s. Some of them don't like anything from PS3 so they have a 360. And some of them absolutely aren't interested in 360 games so they have a PS3.

It's called preference people. So stop the name calling, pushing and shoving like 6 year old little kids.

marionz3360d ago

xbox has plenty of games to keep me going, im still milking soul calibur and playing viva pinata TIP plenty too, both those games will easily keep me going for months, then theres fable banjo and GOW so im actually wondering if theres enough time left in the year for me to fit them all in

ArthurLee3360d ago

32 Blu rays + Iron Man , The Dark Knight , Incredible Hulk on the way when released.

My 2 games I own for each year (like I stated) are Uncharted for year one. And MGS4 for year 2.

Little Big Planet is a possibility.

It makes my Audio CD's sound great.
Thanks for playing.

There is never enough...I would like Crimson Skies 3, Splinter Cell, Alan Wake, Halo wars, Huxley, MechAssault 3, Killer Instinc 3 and many more...

But if those titles were to release this holiday, then I would be broke and there would be no time to enjoy those games thus missing out. So the line up for the holidays IMO is perfect.

Cajun Chicken3360d ago

For one of the first times, I agree with something you've said here;
'Crimson Skies 3'. Simply awesome game, still play that BC on my 360 now.
Problem being; MS dismantled the developers due to the failure of the ONE game, being 'Shadowrun' and core members are working for Capcom for Dark Void which does look spiritually similar...
Similar situation with Digital Anvil who made the great 'Freelancer' and the god-awful 'Brute Force', one bad game, shut down and dissolved.

Any idea why I don't like the way MS treat developers compared to others now?

Stryfeno23360d ago

Smith & Tinker is pleased to announce that it has licensed from Microsoft the electronic entertainment rights for Mr. Weisman's previous creations of MechWarrior, Shadowrun, Crimson Skies and the other properties of the FASA catalog. We're not quite ready to announce our plans for each property, but please be assured that our goal is to surprise and delight old fans, while welcoming new fans to these fantastic worlds.

Cajun Chicken3360d ago (Edited 3360d ago )

That's great, but it isn't the original developer as they are now gone. You have to admit, Crimson Skies was a brilliantly developed game, why the need to close down after one bad egg?

I'm a bit dubious about franchises being passed about. Some go sour in the hands of new developers, surely you must of seen it happen...I call it the 'Crash Bandicoot effect'.
Wait, that doesn't actually mean they'll be exclusive to MS consoles anyway, does it?

That's just the use of electronic entertainment rights of the IP being licensed from MS so they essentially have permission from MS to make more games.

Good to hear Crimson Skies isn't being wasted though, well and Mechwarrior, I guess. Ta for that.

Stryfeno23360d ago

It will be 360 Exclusive because MS still owns the IP...It just that Smith & Tinker is license to developing it.

I guarantee you, we will see a new Crimson Skies by next year. Don't be surprise if MS announce it on E3 09. Remember, MS has not yet shown what is coming out in 09 aside for Alan Wake, Splinter Cell and Halo Wars.

nice_cuppa3361d ago

so that would be a yes !
Infact more than ps3 !
Stupid fanboy made article !
How sad !

Freckler3360d ago

Lol, I thought the same thing.

Who is the 7th grader that wrote this tripe? I know it had to be one of those multi-account ps3 boys approving their own stories. This would have likely been reported as Lame had it not been.

YoshiMeetsU3360d ago

I was thinking the same thing. He didn't even bother to list the full line-up.. LIPS? In the Movies? Scene-It 2? I know none of them are blockbusters but they are exclusives.

Poorly researched and all the "it somehow managed" lines stinks of a 7th grade fanboy.

Both the PS3 and 360 have good line-ups this holiday.

mikeslemonade3360d ago (Edited 3360d ago )

No I think your the stupid one here. It's always been quality of quantity. How many of those 74 games will sell systems? Probably not even a hand full.

PS3 can also play blu-rays and are you going to ignore that fact too?

Excalibur3360d ago (Edited 3360d ago )

Shame on you for showing these fan boys the facts.
Now your going to make them all cry.

BTW good find. Bubbles

The PS3 has 22 more games in it's entire library that The 360 has in it's 75%-100% category.

Total PS3 games 201
Total 360 games 456

Popeye3360d ago (Edited 3360d ago )

I was just trying to help the guy avoid looking like a cave dwellar in the future.

Bubbles to you as well
