Doesn't matter since 2009 will top both

crunchie1013482d ago

If Team ICO's game and God of War 3 come out, YES.

dadeisvenm3482d ago

I already pre-ordered Killzone and I'm hoping Gran Turismo 5 proper is released.

..but if I have to pick 2008 or 2007, I have to pick 2007.

Haha Saint Sony it's because Sony bounced back, no brainer.

No game in 2008 beats Uncharted, Bioshock, COD4, or Mass Effect, so therefore 2007 was the better year. 2009 will be even better if you are a PS3 owner. 360 and Wii owners will be left in the dust as exclusive after exclusive only debuts only on the PS3.

Man_of_the_year3482d ago (Edited 3482d ago )

actually since the games that are announced for the 360 already look like great AAA games - i can only imagine the games that are unannounced for the 360 that are coming out in 09.

I am pretty sure i have read comments like yours from sony droids such as yourself stating the same things last year....

ignorance is bliss isn't it mikeslemonade.

"actually since the games that are announced for the 360 already look like great AAA games"

That's a pretty generalized statement, games like..... ?

mikeslemonade3482d ago (Edited 3482d ago )

I meant to say exclusive after exclusive that actually matter. I don't care about rehashed same experiences with average graphics.

Alan Wake: crappy graphics and unknown
Splinter Cell: crappy graphics and unknown
Ninja Blade: crappy graphics and less exciting compared to ninja gaiden
Halo Recon: is an expansion with same crappy graphics
Halo Wars: is a RTS and won't do anything big for 360
Mass Effect 2: is multiplatform and probably won't be as good as Mass Effect 1 because it was unique
Bioshock 2: is multiplatform and probably won't be as as good as Bioshock 1 because it was unique.

Well there you have it nothing in the 360's lineup is incredible that develiivers the entire package as far as a unique experience, online, great single player experience, and amazing graphics. Of course the 360 games probably will sell more but i'm saying that the PS3 exclusives will score higher on metacritic.

Man_of_the_year3481d ago (Edited 3481d ago )

according to you and your "opinion". But you being rather ignorant in not being able to determine what is "fact" and what is "opinion" i wouldn't imagine that you would think that any of those games could be considered AAA games...even if their predecessor has a higher review average than 95% of any sony exclusive.

I guess you must rank up their pretty high within the SDF.

2008 had GTA4, MGS4 and LittleBigPlanet

But then 2007 had Portal.


dadeisvenm3482d ago

for the most part, in one way shape or form, those games were hampered bad news.

mintaro3482d ago (Edited 3482d ago )

2007 would be my guess, Mass Effect, Bioshock, and Rockand all came in that year. Plus many more incredible games.


Voozi3482d ago (Edited 3482d ago )

I have to go with 2008, 2007 was great but 2008 was better for me, it had more games that appealed to me.

No More Heroes
Valkyria Chronicles
Naruto UNS
Tales of Vesperia
Fable II
Gears 2
Resistance 2
Prince of Persia
Devil May Cry 4

dadeisvenm3482d ago

who can argue. :)

I have to say 2008 was better for me because I bought all the games I wanted, but when I go to Game$top I can't help but look at all the games I couldn't get on the PC, DS, Wii, PSP, PS2, PS3, and 360. Literally EVERY console had AAA titles. One test I would put out there as a measuring rod is:

Name two AAA titles from the same genre on the same platform that had to compete for public attention?

And so my best example is Orange Box, Halo 3, and Call of Duty 4 on the 360. Bioshock has to be left out simply because of the release period.

3 Amazing titles that fought for the top live spot duing the holiday season. Thats pretty impressive. Even the PS2 was a hot and heavy contender.
