Number of quality titles in PS3's library doubles in 2008

PSBeyond writes:

"But just how big was this expansion of the PS3's software library? According to review aggregate GameRankings.com, it was huge. At the end of 2007, there were 35 PS3 titles ranking 80% or better. As of right now, even with some big games still on the way, there are 77 titles over that mark. That's an increase of 222%, more than double the 2007 totals."

People are going towards a recession in US believe or not, and it plays a big factor in buying the console.

I haven't seen the worldwide numbers for 360 and Ps3, but I think they will be about equal.

In US, xbox has obviously sold a lot because of price and ads. PS3 has done a lot with exclusives games, but Price is standing to be the archilles heel for the the 360.

BobDog3537d ago (Edited 3537d ago )

this is a global crisis it isnt only effecting the us

RememberThe3573537d ago

We've been in a recession since around January.

comm133537d ago

Funny how I don't feel any major effects of this recession in Canada.

You would think the world would learn not to depend on the US Economy after the first "market crash", let us hope they will do this time.

sunnygrg3537d ago

You forgot Eyetoy (Europe Late2009)!! That is the game I want to show to my buddies about how innovative videogames are becoming. Well that and Killzone2. That game looks sick.

el_bandito3537d ago

yey! keep the good games coming. I can hardly wait for all the new games 1st quarter of 2009.

LOL. @ the "Transformers" and "Spiderman" games in the pic. I thought we're talking about quality titles here.

Raoh3537d ago

Don't forget to add an inevitable price drop on the ps3 coming in 2009 as well.

Out of all of these, I have these titles:
LittleBigPlanet
Metal Gear Solid 4
Resistance 2
Uncharted
Warhawk

Everything else I rented or ignored.

I might buy these titles when they come out though:

God Of War III (maybe rental, depends on online play and replay value)
Infamous (maybe rental, same reason as above)
Killzone 2 (If it's much different from R2 or CoD4 aside from GFX.)
Uncharted 2 (maybe rental, same reason as above, it'd be Uncharted souped up basically right?)

bigman73873537d ago

Why would you be concerned with the online play of God of War III? Its a single player game. Do you even know what you are talking about?

Bitter Tears3537d ago

I'm buying it depending ON online play, if it doesn't have any, I'll probably rent it or borrow it. I don't buy single player games anymore, as much fun they are, after beating it twice there's nothing left.

You have missed out on some awesome gaming:

RFOM1
Motorstorm 1
Motorstorm 2
R&Clank
Heavenly Sword
Grand Tourismo Prologue

The PS3 is the best gaming experience on the market today. I have the 360 as well and it has some fun games but nothing that compares to the AAA exclusives on the PS3.

And thats 67 games .. might save ya time counting.. heh

If ya have any questions or doubts.. just pm me..i'll prove myself..

Legion3536d ago

Not even close to my list of games and I don't even have them all posted. Even though the PS3 has increased their library they still haven't matched up with the 360 on their excellent library. Sorry... it's true.

Homicide3536d ago

2008 has truly been a tremendous year for PS3 owners. This was only the beginning as we enter 2009 and beyond.

Also historic AAAA games like MGS4 or LBP.

the xbug 3rd60 will never even touch a AAAA exclusive game, NEVER!!!!!! Hahahahahahahahahahaha the the stupid xbugs had enough with mediocre overrated AAA games where are they now xbugs ????? Hahahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaa! !!!!!!!!!!!!

Kush_Reaper3537d ago

Its quite obvoious that the ps3 offers more in variety than its competitors(not including the wii)but also has the hardware to back it up. This holiday season will truely be great for us gamers but to be calling names is just unacceptable.

PLAY BEYOND NOT BEHIND

ThatCanadianGuy3537d ago

Shaka do you have to act so immature? You give all PS3 fans a bad rep when you stoop to the level of the common xbot.

Capital G3537d ago

but i think its cute that psbeyond doesnt want to go anywhere near the dreaded three A's

except lbp, which sold 2 million in 3 days ;)

ThatCanadianGuy3537d ago

My friend,i enjoy taking you're bubbles.

PoSTedUP3537d ago

its not sonys fault the ps3 eats off of a wide variety of top notch exclusive games. 360 gamers are starving for some good exclusives, thats why they pounced on halo3 and gears like they did, just like a starving lion attacks an antelope.

3537d ago
mesh13537d ago

HEY MY DEAR SON I HAVE TO CORRECT lbp aka lbf sold 200k in 4 dAYS while gears2 sold 2 million in 1 night.

ThatCanadianGuy3537d ago

Mesh1/poos3

Why do you always switch accounts every comment you make?

And yeah.. Gears (proven IP)
vs
LBP (New IP) I'll wait till the official numbers come in.
Not some PR spin.

comm133537d ago

Since when do "numbers" determine which game is better?

InMyOpinion3537d ago

Gears 1 wasn't a proven IP and it's sold millions more copies than MGS4. How do you excuse that?

gauntletpython3537d ago

@Jenzo

Because its been out for more than 2 years now? MGS4 opening week in the US outsold Gears 1 in the US by 50K, and worldwide outsold Gears 1 by almost half a million. When MGS4 is 2 years old, it will have outsold Gears from when it was 2 years old.

I mean, at this point, its only like 1.5 million away after just 4-5 months. Not bashing Gears, but MGS is an established franchise with worldwide appeal. Gears has no appeal in Japan. Its only natural MGS4 would outsell it at some point

3537d ago
ThatCanadianGuy3537d ago (Edited 3537d ago )

Jenzo..Gears of war had absolutely no competition and a big marketing campaign.

Why do you always fail jenzo?

InMyOpinion3537d ago

"By January 19, 2007, just ten weeks after its debut, over three million units of the game had been sold."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...

How come none of the unproven PS3 exclusives have even come close to that?

@CanadianGuy - The only failure here is the PS3 and it's lacklustre games.

Diamondwolf3537d ago (Edited 3537d ago )

Ok, that's getting old.

Please enlighten me on why you TRULY believe that all PS3 games are lack luster, especially in this thread?

Do not include sales figures
Do not include metacritic scores
Do not include comparisons to 360 titles

Tell me how you felt when you played and/or finished these games?

I can almost guarantee that you can't unbiasedly tell me why you think these games are lackluster.

In fact I bet no one can do this at all on any console on games that they know are quality titles.

All you people do is bash the other system due to your own insecurities as Sessler put it and can't possibly tell me that Gears 2 sucks if you've played it without throwing in some trash, or that LBP is a flop and "lacklustre" title. You trolls can't possibly tell me that Resistance 2 doesn't have high production and a top notch multiplayer without doing one of the above.

Know why? because you fanboys on both sides don't play to enjoy games anymore. You guys have officially turned back the clock to "My GIJoe can beat your GIJoe in arm wrestling", effectively reverting back to the stereotype that gamers are just basement dwelling geeks who have no life.

I mean really, when and if you ever go outside, it's killing you inside that someone you'll NEVER meet owns and supports a console that you don't have, and you so desperately want to buy it, your alter-ego comes out and bashes it so you can feel good about not buying it. That is the only explanation for comments like Jenzo has displayed and I pity all of you who thinks that way.

If my comments pissed you off then yes, I am talking about you because truth hurts.

Enjoy being mediocre and insignificant.

~DW

Edit: @ Jenzo, You can link all of the wikipedia sales that you want, overall sales don't determine my opinion on games, all it proves is that marketing has successfully lulled all of the sheep to follow suit. I follow sales and gaming news and what not to educate myself on this industry and carry on discussions/debates with friends and other gamers in the world, but in the end, I play games to have fun. I don't let the sales/review ratings and rabid fanboys play me.

ultimolu3537d ago (Edited 3537d ago )

"@CanadianGuy - The only failure here is the PS3 and it's lacklustre games."

Have you played the games Jenzo?

So you mean to tell me that Heavenly Sword, Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Resistance, Resistance 2, MLB: The Show, Valkyria Chronicles, Uncharted, Metal Gear Solid 4, Naruto: Ninja Storm, Motorstorm, Warhawk, Motorstorm: Pacific, Gran Turismo Prologue, and any kick ass upcoming 1st party game are lackluster?

Do me a favor and stop yapping about games you have never played before. You don't want people bashing games on the 360 and yet you do the same crap with PS3 games. If you haven't played them, then you are in no position to attack them.

Thank you and have a nice day.

gauntletpython3537d ago

Metal Gear Solid 4 hit 3 million copies in 9 weeks. Add 'em up.

http://www.vgchartz.com/gam...

At any rate, I'm not trying to say MGS4 is better than Gears. Gears is awesome, so is Gears 2. Fact is, though, MGS4 on track to sell better than Gears 1 worldwide.

Bitter Tears3537d ago

And Gears of War 2 sold 2.1 million in 24 hours... Where are you going with this?

ultimolu3537d ago

...So what?

So just because Gears 2 sold that many, that makes it an excellent games?

Play games, not numbers. The games I mentioned are all great games.

gauntletpython3537d ago

@ Bitter Tears

I'm not going anywhere, someone made a false statement and I'm correcting it. Jenzo asked why MGS4 didn't sell as well as Gears 1, when, in fact, its on track to exceed it.

acedoh3537d ago

Has sold 2 million in 24 hours. Although that says even more because the games are so well respected they end up selling over ten million in the long run. Franchises like Gran Turismo and Grand Theft Auto which started on Playstation. I don't think SONY has ever over hyped any game. Since I owned a PSone on 9/9/95 I don't remember any title getting non stop advertisements. Look at Gran Turismo. You rarely ever see advertisments for any of their games and yet they are one of the top franchises in all of gaming. Word of mouth is what sells and that continues to be the fact with many PS3 games. Uncharted started off very slow and because of word of mouth it is now one of the best selling PS3 games. That says more than any hype train can...

earwax3536d ago

HAZE and LAIR? are you on crack?

DrakenSilverwing3536d ago

ya know.. look past the flaws of Lair.. and after the update its accually much better using the controls.. now Haze i struggled to get into.. but yes i like many types of games.. i have made mistakes but i do not trade in my games..

PoSTedUP3537d ago (Edited 3537d ago )

AAA has nothing to do with reviews. hahahah i just proved you wrong.

"not 1 knows about this game in the real world only the world of gameing sites they know about this crap."

your probably right here because sony didnt market this game really, its a shame.

L Ronald Hubbard3537d ago

Before you say flop, think of Too Human.

GoldenBoy3537d ago

How did you fell sorry? Did it hurt? Did you fall on your 360 and then say sorry? I don't get your point...thread doesn't say AAA it says quality.

I guess by your logic Fable 2 is a flop? 89 on both Metacritic and Gamerankings.
