Deja Vu: 360 Will Have Games for 2009

"Not too long ago, Sony issued a press release showing off its exclusive titles for release in 2009. Literally littered with a whole host of AAA titles such as SOE's DC Universe Online, Quantic Dream's Heavy Rain, and Sucker Punch's inFamous, does this spell game over for Microsoft?"

That is what people said last year and look what was released.

it's March.

360 has already got Star Ocean 4 and Halo Wars so far and Ninja Blade is about out everywhere. Microsoft just doesn't announce their games really early and hype them to heaven. That's just how they work.

Makes me wonder if these bitter people will be saying the same thing come December...

doubt it.

2007 year of...
2008 year of....
2009 year of...

....has no games

How about we wait until the end of the year to determine all this. Seems logical doesn't it?

logical Sony fanboys? don't make me laugh!

no-spin3533d ago

if you close your eyes and listen to MS PR you will see the "games"

Multiplatforms are going to be the line up for 360, and at the end of every commercial, "buy a xbox 360 starting at $199 ($150 by march?). Just look at the commercials for RE 5 and the red xbox promo

Hopefully, by 2010, Sony boys will have learned already and won't scream victory too early in the year.

If I see those "confirmed" lists, the same argument about the Xbox not having any games and early victory calling once again, I'll have to kill somebody... probably myself XD

Alcon3533d ago

Of course they'll have games. I'm sure they will have some exclusives up their sleeves. It's not because they don't show/tell anything now, it means that there will be no games for the 360 in 2009. Those things are usualy planned at least a year in advance. They are not stupid,and know wich games where coming for the PS3 (KZ, they knew/know Uncharted 2 won't be far off, just like GOWIII ,and others). Knowing those games are probably going to come on the PS3 in 2009 (or early 2010), I think they prepared some exclusives as well. Now saying wich will be better , is just a matter of personal opinion, but I really doubt they won't have good exclusives coming. We still are early in 2009, and many AAA titles come near the end of the year (esspecialy during christmas).

Ninja Blade is cool

SuperM3532d ago

The only game that got announced at this late point last year for MS was Gears2. Thats 1 game, not really incredible. If MS announce 1 more game for release this year then thats not gonna be enough. They need atleast 3 more good ones to be competing and even then id say sony has the upper hand. We already know Sony is going to announce atleast 1 more game for this year, R&C.

""Take a hard look at what’s happening now. It’s exactly the same thing repeating all over again. We’ve just gotten a tease of Lost Planet 2 and it debuted on the Xbox Live Marketplace.""

Lost Planet 2??? that game will be crap in comparison to Uncharted 2 or GOW3. Xbox owners (or anyone else) PLEASE tell me a game MS has that will compare to those two. Alan Wake looks good other than that..... Halo ODST? didnt anyone learn when COD4 played better and out sold Halo3? yes it is repeating another halo another modern warfare those are the only similarities

king dong3532d ago

i know i always bash your blogs...but thats because the trash you write deserves to be bashed. and to quote your latest blog "Literally littered with a whole host of AAA titles such as SOE's DC Universe Online, Quantic Dream's Heavy Rain, and Sucker Punch's inFamous"

can you please tell me how a game months maybe years from release, is automatically AAA? or was that just to satisfy the sony army on here?

BRG90003532d ago

"AAA" actually refers to the budget and marketing behind a release. Doesn't matter if the game is good or not. Lair was a AAA title, for example.

At least, that's what I learned on the 1up yours podcast, I wish I knew what episode and I'd point you to it.

Marquis_de_Sade3532d ago

So far there's Halo Wars and Star Ocean 4, with Ninja Blade imminent and it's only March. Don't be so quick to make such a poorly thought out statement, 360 only gamers will no doubt have an enjoyable year. Wait for the end of the year to make such a statement as I'm sure many will have an egg waiting for your face if you carry on in such a manner.

It seems the author isnt aware that Lost Planet 2 has been confirmed as a 2010 title. As well as Mass Effect 2 by the way.

I predict Alan Wake and Forza 3 this holiday season for Xbox 360 (I dont think Halo:ODST should count, its an expansion)

EDIT: Someone want to respond and say why they disagree?

NewZealander3533d ago

its going to be interesting to see how ODST turns out tho, already bungie has said its going to be more then just an expansion, and it is said to be around the 5 - 7 hour mark to complete.

would be nice if they just made it a full game.

Rainstorm813532d ago

360 fans are expecting an all new 09 line up to be announced not one or two exclusives

ajlopo3532d ago

On Major Nelson's podcast Capcom leaked that Lost Planet 2 will be out this holiday season on the 360....

NewZealander3533d ago

i cant wait, im looking forward to finally seeing some gameplay from bioshock2, halo ODST and alan wake, thats not too much to ask for is it?

also really interested in seeing what sony and MS have up there sleeve for GDC, hopefully both platforms present a strong lineup for the rest of 2009.

xxBATTLECATxx3533d ago

is bioshock coming this holiday?
its always such a tangled web of games last few months of the year. but for sure im getting first day Uncharted, COD MW2, Bioshock, and God of War (i doubt itll hit this year) i dont know whats coming out for the box but if i ONLY had the xbox you could replace Uncharted for ODST and still smell like a prince (Mind you, you wont smell like a king unless you pick up infamous and heavy rain too =P )
