It's been said, "that 2008 will be the year of the ps3" and now with the PlayStation's exclusive line-up and the expectation of Killzone 2 early in the year people are saying, "2009 will be the year of the PS3" too, but will it?
This won't end well *runs*
I guess having the best games doesnt count, does having the highest rated game of 08 mean nothing? isnt the video game media suppose to follow the video game industry, you know the industry of video games
Waste of time. p.s. LightningPS3PS, and your comments also should be reported as SPAM, they bring NOTHING useful to gamers.
Even after all these years, your tradition of posting absolute drivel & nonsense continues on strong as ever. Bravo.
Unless Xbox 360 gets a better line up, I don't see what's wrong with that statement.
Most people no longer buy these claims assuming anybody reads this.
Wasn't 2007 the year of the PS3 ? Then 2008? My guess is 2009 will be the year of the Wii.
Damn lightning i have no idea why you haven't been thrown into the open zone yet.
lighting = 360 fanboy
as long as your console gives you what you want who cares. :)
me adding another 10-15 more games to my collection by the end of 2009!:) ps3 collection:)
They have great games coming. They needed a price cut last year. They should receive one this year. However, year of the ps3? More like another great year for gaming.
That was a completely useless with no real information. Who are the idiots keep approving "news" like this?
My gosh folks.... unless the PS3 gets at least a $100 price cut, it don't matter what they put out!!! Personally, I think they need alot more that a $100 price cut to really pull ahead of the 360. Unfortunately Sony priced themselves out of winning this generation, and I don't think 2009 will be any better for the PS3. The economic downturn snuffed any chance of the PS3 winning this gen, and made it the last place console. The economy will not turn around for many years, and by that time, the next gen consoles will be releasing. R.I.P. PS3
For the sake of the fanboys... no... I on the other hand will enjoy Killzone 2 along with other PS3 gamers.
lets jus call it the year of the wii/x360 and see how that fairs...noboody can really measure up to that yard stick.
since 07. 2008 is the best gaming year for me solely because of MGS4. The greatest game ever imo.
no no no please stop with this is the year ps3 it gonna be 08 all over again we all find out 08 was a good year for all console
I see what you did there. Your page is running low on hits therefore your create controversy by the title. Sorry I have had my fill of these for '09.
It might not be the year of PS3, or the year of SONY, but it would certainly be the YEAR for PS3 owners since there are amazing games coming out this year. The PS3 will probably sell the same amounts that its selling right now. The money for all PS3s sold isnt going to my pocket, so I dont care about console sales. XBOX 360 could even sell 300m consoles, but who cares if it doesnt satisfy the consumer ?? SONY is loosing badly but its trying to retain the 1st place by giving us those amazing games. Microsoft has got the lead over SONY this generation, so they are not bothered. They dont need to catch up with someone .. :S.. so why bother making more and more games ;). Thats how it works nowadays.
Just like 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2008. Sorry droids, PS3 will only get "3rd place of the year" award again.
no one ever said any year before 2008 was gona be the year of the playstation. And 2008 WAS in fact the year of the playstation. The PS3 had better games and EVERYONE knows that. IGN's blog shows that the PS3 games of 2008 statistically had outscored the xbox 360's by quite a margin. And 2009 will be the same, that margin will only increase. So while you're fapping away about sales, i'm enjoying the better games. Which console owners win? The PS3 console owners, because they see the AAA games. Which company gets the most money? most likely Microsoft, but NOT the xbox owners. So why are you so happy that you're giving your money to the games that ARE NOT better than the competition?
Weekly post about claiming a winner for 2009. Funny how he makes a prediction after trying to make a point based on failed assumptions in past years.
Well, nice words, agreed 100%! Stop with all the hate and play games. Get a cheap Arcade and a PS3 (maybe after price cut) and be happy!
2009 is the year of EXCLUSIVES
Which means year of the ps3 right?
which idiots disagreed with me? Obviously if it means the year of exclusives, it means year of ps3.
um...DUH! @lightningps3 u must be adopted and be abused a lot for you to say something really ignorant and stupid. people don't like you do they?
I'm not going to say for certain, because we know how MS suprise people. But I think most the announced games this year from MS will be MMO console ports. The Maw has made me think that Twisted Pixels next game may be another 360 exclusive, so I'm watching out for a possible announcement and I must say, Twisted Pixel are one developer to look out for. Uncharted 2 and R&CF: 2, winner in my book, winning combo. Then theres many more first party on the way (yes, including Killzone2, Infamous and possibly God of War 3), the PS3 will get a lot of playing and a lot more than usual, and in total how much I play my PS3 over my 360...thats a lot. I think a lot of people will want a PS3 this year.
It's funny that people are saying the Playstation 3 already lost this generation or "race" when it's been out only 2 years. Anyways, this can be the year of the ps3 if Sony want's it to be. They have the games to do it, they just need to let ppl know these games exist and are worth the purchase.
It seems people have entered Sony into a race it won't run. Sony couldn't care less about the other companies, they're there to make money and last throughout their 10 year plan. Theres no use sprinting at the beginning of a marathon, and all good runners know that, and Sony seems to know that. Sony is racing themselves, not Microsoft, but Microsoft and everyone else seems to think this marathon is a 100 yard dash racing against everyone else.
Nobody cares about the games anymore. Now it's turning into who can sell the most. This will also be the year of the PS3 because my library is inching towards twenty games and counting. What matters to me is playing the games.
I agree Juuken. It's all about the games. However the console SKU that sells the most will ultimately have the most support from developers and hence have the most and best games. For proof of this look at the ps2. It was not the best console, but due to its widespread install base, had a plethora of games. It is a little naive to discount sku sales when they are the sole reason developers have to develop games for any one platform.
I think both consoles will have a good 2009.
Now that's what I'm talkin' about. It's about quality, not quantity.
It definitely has many good things favoring the system but in order for more people to open themselves up to upgrading from the PS2 to the PS3 or encouraging others to invest in this hardware they will need to drop the price.
lol @ 2009 year of the PS3 lolol
08 was many people's pic as Sony's year when it came to the amount of high quality games. 09 looks even better. If it's sales then the Wii will probably win hands down but their lineup is no slouch as well. MS is left in the cold as it will not win on the games front or sales front this year. DlC and PC ports will not cut it.
it reads, "2009 the year of the ps3?" it should say 2009 the year of the ps3! but that really wouldn't be news either because we all already new that.
In other words it will never really be the PS3s or xbox360's year.
All this does is set up expectations that most likely will not be met. How about we just cease labeling years, get over our differences and do what we love... game. ... ... Oh wait. I forgot, I'm at N4G. Nevermind then. Continue as you were, my rage filled brethren.
Lol the year of the ps3 will be in 2012, when the new generation of consoles come out, and i agree 100% with the 2 first posts.
it will most likely be the year of the PS3. for ME, 2007 was the year of the PS3. in 2007, i enjoyed Resistance, Virtua Fighter 5, Motorstorm, Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Warhawk, Heavenly Sword, Folklore, Ratchet and Clank Future, Uncharted, Unreal Tournament 3, plus PSN titles. for the 360, i enjoyed Mass Effect and Bioshock. clearly, i used my PS3 more in 2007. so for me, 2007 was "the year of the PS3." in 2008, i enjoyed MGS4, Pixel Junk Eden, Pixel Junk Monsters, Motorstorm: PR, Resistance 2, Little Big Planet, Disgaea 3, Valkyria Chronicles, Wipeout HD, Siren: Blood Curse, and Ratchet and Clank: Quest for Booty, and more. for the 360, i enjoyed Fable 2 and Braid. clearly, i used my PS3 more in 2008. so yet again, it was another "year of the PS3." THIS year, i'm looking to enjoy Killzone 2, inFamous, White Knight Chronicles, Fat Princess, Gran Turismo 5, MAG, DC Universe Online, The Agency, Uncharted 2, Ratchet and Clank Future 2, God of War 3, and Heavy Rain, on the Playstation 3. i'm looking to enjoy Alan Wake, and maybe Ninja Blade, on the Xbox 360. so yes, when it comes to looking at what titles i'm anticipating, 2009 is shaping up to be another "year of the Playstation 3." i could care less what other people think, as that's their gaming tastes, and neither right or wrong in comparison to MY game tastes. some people value DLC more than full games, apparently. i DON'T. some people find value in paying for an online service, instead of getting a free one. i DON'T. some people root for a console that is two Gamecubes Duct Taped together. i would much rather have titles like MGS4, Little Big Planet, and Killzone 2 setting bars and truly shaping the industry for the future. some people are satisfied with Unreal Engine 3. i am NOT, and would prefer home grown, built from the ground up engines that are tailor made for the title they support, instead of a general engine that can be bent and molded to fit any genre, with generic results: http://media.teamxbox.com/g... http://www.gamemanx.com/wp-... http://www.trustedreviews.c... http://www.ps2vicio.com/ima... http://ve3dmedia.ign.com/im... http://www.byond.com/member... but hey, that's just ME.
+1 Fig. I myself want MORE from a console not LESS. Something that will LAST as well as have LONGEVITY in it's design. Sorry to those of you who settle for less...I have come to expect (and receive) more from Sony over the years. EVERY model of console they have provided has done this ~ 100% confirmed. You buy "cheap", you get "cheap"...you buy "generic", you get "generic", you settle for outdated tech with no innovation - well you get what you support....I have better standards than that in my life and I demand the same when I spend my money! But hey, that's just ME! ;)
every year is the year of the ps3. and every year denial sweeps in. -nai-
Did a search...and yep at least 5 articles already this year about the PS3 being the "Year Of". GIVE IT A REST ALREADY!
Opinions from a SONY fanboy site is not valid as news more like boasting from the sewer.Death to all fanboys!
As I said, the concept of "year of ______" was made to get web hits.
goddamn sonyfans when will they get it through their head it never gonna be year of ps3 didn't everbody claim 08 belong to sony what happen we find out in the year of ps3 it couldn't deliver
I for one don't actually care. I have a PS3, I love the stuff I can play and do on my PS3 and that's all that matters to me. Wouldn't trade it for the world.
I still want Sony to do well 'profit' wise. Therefore they can continue to pump out these AWESOME AAA games. I also want MS to do well, so Sony has competition up their arse. OVERALL, I hope both companies do well enough to keep giving us the high caliber games.
no its the year of the xbox because its got so many games coming out like...uhhh ....uuhhh ill get back to u later. STFU MORONS keep playing ur gears n halo LOL,,,LOL
With the PlayStation 3s' line up, hell yes, to be honest i would say 2008 AND 2009 would be the year of the PS3, and hell i dont even have one right now!!! only a 360... Which i regret buying.. But with microsofts money... it will be hard for Sony.. I mean microsoft are shoddy people, in it for the money to come out looking like the best as cheaply as possible... look at halo, they need to finish it up and start a new franchise... but they won't. Gears 3 is now a dependent for 360... LOL. again.... no new exclusives.... Screwed 360 buyer.... AGAIN. PS3 will win in games... fo sho.
http://www.n4g.com/NewsCom-... Is kinda ironic that my prediction has turned out pretty accurate so far...
I see nothing i am really interested in, aside FF13vs that is in 2010 Heavy Rain is a movie Uncharted 2 is a linear 8 hour shooter Killzone 2 is a linear 10 hour shooter God of War 3 is a linear game with quick time events White Knight is the lowest scoring JRPG ever, and looks mediocre in visuals, the generic design and art and the boring repeattive combat system Demon Soul is an action game that looks cool, but is just one title, and not something that amazing either Now considering 360 gets exclusively the biggest advenure game ever, Alan Wake, the biggest startegy game ever KUF2, and some of the biggest RPG's ever, like Star Ocean 4 and the vast in size and scope Two Worlds Temptation, Mass Effect 2, Divinity 2, Venetica, Dungeon Hero, Risen etc I think 2009 is easilly xbox 360 year by miles and miles, like 2008 was with the real huge games like Fable 2, Banjo 3, Lost Odyssey, Tales, NG2, Last Remnant etc, while PS3 had the last gen in level design and gameplay LBP, MGS4 etc that were over in 1-2 days and had minimal gameplay
Another one of these, eh. I guess we should all be use to these by now.
It contains the most huge in scale, scope and gameplay hours games in 2009 by miles imo . . . Xbox 360 2009 game lineup http://www.gamespot.com/pag... .
Please writers...change the headline...just a little...show some I.M.A.G.I.A.N.T.I.O.N.
....is the year of the 'fanboy'. This year things will reach an all new level and things will be very heated in forums like these. I only hope maybe one day it will change to year of the 'gamer', where everyone can just get along and give credit where credits due in terms of games on both sides. Sigh, will never bloody happen but one can always dream.
