Miner Wars: Microsoft Pulling Out Some Surprises

Now if you have been awake you should know that many high profile titles as of recently have been pushed back until 2010, fortunately for Xbox 360 users, many if not all of their top quality exclusives are all still scheduled for 2009 release.

I guess 2010 is the year of the PS3 :)

OmarJA3139d ago

Yeah it will be like 2009 & 2008...

So many great exclusive titles to play on my PS3. :)

Whut3139d ago (Edited 3139d ago )

omar j last time I checked 2007 was the year of Xbox360 and so was 2008

Ps3 had a chance in 2009 but there is so many games coming out for the Xbox360 that PS3 does not even stand a chance.

that'S what happen when you dont advertise and people dont buy your stuff and you say that your games will come out in 2009 but they arent actually coming out untill like 2010(heavy rain) and you Hype games for over 2years and have it release in another 2years (GoW3 , GT5)

maybe 2010 will be the year of ps3... Unless the same scenario happens MS comes with more games again. Alan Wake , Mass EFfect 2 , MechWarrior, Halo Reach, CrackDown 2 , Ninety Nine Nights 2 and many more to come oh and NATAL.

these are hard times for the sony brand . As they realise they are not alone on earth anymore.

OmarJA3139d ago (Edited 3139d ago )

No wrong...

The PS3 still dominate this year with both 1st & 3rd party exclusive titles not to mention so many PSN titles coming as well & we already KZ2,inFamous & MLB all AAA titles, on the other hand the 360 is struggling with it's lack of true titles since most of it's titles can also be played on a decent PC hardware...

& last time i checked 2008 WAS the year of the PS3 with two AAA titles MGS4 & LBP & other while the 360 barely had on AAA title that looks exactly the same as first with broken online experience...

Feel free to disagree if it makes you feel any better but that the truth.

Hey Whut, chill out for a second, will ya? I can almost hear you sobbing

Cwalat3139d ago

Wow, N4G is doomed interms of reliability (come to think of it, was it ever reliable news source? only rumors and fanboy articles..) No interesting articles.. only fanboys whining about their insecurity and bashing PS3 all the time, "PS3 fanboys said this was the year of PS3 when infact a new XBL game, (that isn't even confirmed for release and the only footage shown is a techdemo,) proves them wrong.. this is the year of 360!"

I'd say this year both have had interesting exclusives and even though PS3 has two or three more exclusives, interms of quality.. it's a TIE.

PS3 exclusives 09:
Killzone 2
Flower
MLB 09
Infamous
Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2
Fat Princess
Ratchet & Clank crack in time
Demon Souls
Uncharted 2 Among thieves
Pixeljunk Shooter
Gran Turismo 5

360 exclusives 09:
Halo Wars
Shadow Complex
Forza motorsport 3
Left for Dead 2
Splinter Cell conviction
Miner Wars
HALO 3:ODST

...and both consoles will enjoy the awesome lineup of multiplatform games coming up:

COD: Modern Warfare 2,
Assassins Creed 2,
Tekken 6,
Batman: Arkhum Asylum,
Fifa 10,
PeS 10,
Guitar Hero 5,
Brutal Legend,
Dirt 2,
Bayonetta,
NBA 2k10,
NBA live 10,
The Saboteur,

...and many more... =)
I hope everyone puts their fanboy side away and try to enjoy gaming without being biased.

terrandragon3139d ago

You can stick those games up your arse, because you are obviously too busy posting fanboy comments in MS articles.

so long as splinter cell is coming out this year im happy

Grown Folks Talk3139d ago

it has been pushed back to a January 5th ship date from October 20th originally. I am praying it's not true. Ubi has teased me enough with my favorite franchise already.

Grown Folks Talk3138d ago

shows November 16th ship date now. Better than January, but I would rather have October.

San Frandisco3139d ago

Flopza 3? (inferoir to Gran turismo on PSP)

Crackdown 2? (no one even asked for that lame game,crackdown 1 only sold well becouse of halo 3 demo)

Splinter flop? (hahahaaa it will be one of thos hyped failures)

halo ODST? (a fvckin failure of a expansion no matter how much xbots try spinning this,it a crappy EXPANSION!)

hahaha MSFT 3fixme is just like IE,super sh!tty but alot of ppl have one.
Firefox is like ps3,alot of ppl have them but its the best Broswer out there.. (just like ps3 is the best console out there).. and with the best add ons.. (just like ps3's capabilities are endless)... PFFT 3FIXME FTL

Kushan3139d ago

Wow, you've played all those games already?! I want whatever insider contacts you have!

-MD-3139d ago

I like watching him rage it's entertaining.

Kushan3139d ago

I just watched the trailer for that "miner wars" and I've never been more underwhelmed in my life.
For half of it, literally nothing happens. Nothing. Just lots of slow moving camera action. Then for the other half, we just have about 5 ships flying around shooting each other with machine guns. I don't get it! What's the appeal to that game meant to be? The name makes it sound like something from Red Faction, but all we seemed to get was a poor-man's Descent Deathmatch.

urban bohemian3139d ago

But as an XBLA game is more acceptable. Maybe like Warhawk in space? Either way might be fun to play! Peace.

Kushan3139d ago

Even as an XBLA game, the trailer made it look incredibly boring. And you know it's going to end up costing 1200 points, when I'd personally be hard pushed to pay 400 points considering the level of enjoyment that the trailer presented me.
I dunno, maybe when we find more out about the game, it'll be better, but frankly that trailer was terrible and didn't get me excited at all.

Jockamo3139d ago

I agree. It looks a little bland and the voice work is ridiculous.

But as long as it plays well, that's all that matters.

Halo_Reach3139d ago

Every single year sony fanboys say that but its comes to be never true...

360 comes allways out with better games and better sales.

Timesplitter143139d ago (Edited 3139d ago )

The Wii beats them both sales-wise. So sales =/= greatest. That's settled.

And as for the games, for 2008 it was :
MGS4, Resistance 2, LBP, Valkyria Chronicles
vs
NG2, Fable 2, Gears 2

For 2009 it's :
Killzone 2, inFamous, Demon's Souls, R&C Crack in Time, Uncharted 2, MAG
vs
Halo Wars, Halo ODST, Forza 3, Magna Carta 2

For 2010 and beyond :
GOW3, Last Guardian, FF14, FF13VS, Heavy Rain, Agent, GT5, White Knight Chronicles
vs
Halo Reach, Crackdown 2, Project Natal

It's all entirely subjective. What exactly made you think the X360 won?

EDIT : Here, look at this. http://i154.photobucket.com...

And the X360 was released 1 year earlier, btw.

Whut3139d ago

you forgot SplinterCEll conviction and L4D2

not because you N4G ps3 fanboys think because it's on Windows Vista that its not exclusive.

the rest of the world think so and so does Reviewers and the Sites that actually nominates the Awards for best of the year winners.

so yeah i'll correct your list

its

For 2009 it's :
Killzone 2, inFamous, Demon's Souls, R&C Crack in Time, Uncharted 2, MAG
vs
Halo Wars, Halo ODST, Forza 3, Magna Carta 2,SplinterCell Conviction , L4D2, Shadow Complex ,GTAIV ballad of gay tony

For 2010 and beyond :
GOW3, Last Guardian, FF14, FF13VS, Heavy Rain, Agent, GT5, White Knight Chronicles
vs
Halo Reach, Crackdown 2, Project Natal , Ninety Nine Nights2 , MEchwarriors 5 , Mass Effect 2, ALAN WAKE , (you missed that one on purpose hahaha lamo)

Timesplitter143139d ago (Edited 3139d ago )

"not because you N4G ps3 fanboys think because it's on Windows Vista that its not exclusive."

Is that the dumbest statement ever or the dumbest statement ever? You're basically saying "it's not because it's multiplat that it's not exclusive"

And what's with the "hhahahhahaha lmao lmao"?

green3139d ago (Edited 3139d ago )

2008 - Braid

2009 - GTA4: The Lost % The Damned,GTA4: The Ballard of Gay Tony (each DLC longer than most retail games),Ninety Nine Nights 2,Shadow Complex,Alien Breed,South Park XBLA and Trails HD,The free to play Joy Ride,L4D 2,Venetica,Champions Online and Splinter Cell: Conviction.

2010 - Alan Wake and Mass Effect 2 but lets not jump the gun because we know that there will be tonnes of games announced for 2010 that we dont know about.

EDIT: Yes some of them are DLC and some of them are PC/360.But anyone will be a foul to disregard the impact that DLC is having on boxed retail games "So why the decline? NPD reckons that the rise of digital downloads and free-to-play online games is now taking sizable chunks out of the traditional retail model."

Microsoft adds that its own digital sales on Xbox Live are up significantly, with Alan Greenburg telling Gamasutra:
“In the first half of the year, paid downloads increased 73 percent over the 12 months through June. That significantly outpaces what we saw in growth for console sales or software sales. It’s continuing to become a bigger and bigger part of our business.” http://www.casualgaming.biz...

And as for PC/360 games, it will be a big selling point for people buying a console because they will see these so called multiplats that they can play on the 360 like Splinter Cell and Mass Effect but they cant play on any other console.

EDIT:Good luck in punching your screen because i disagree.I and all my gaming friends have giving up on PC gaming over the past 10 years.I am not saying it's not great but it is just not for me anymore.And i am sure most people will agree with the fact that piracy is what is killing PC gaming.Anyway, i am off now.Going to the gym because i am a Body Builder.

Cenobia3139d ago

So call it what it is: "Console Exclusive".

I want to hear you say it...DO IT.

The fact people want to pretend its not on any other platform when it is. The PS3 has them too, but not nearly as many as the 360.

Timesplitter143139d ago (Edited 3139d ago )

I didn't put PSN/Xlive games in there. but let's see what's coming our way (you can see the picture I provided for those already released) :

Fat Princess
PixelJunk Shooter
Modnation Racers

VS

Shadow Complex
Alien Breed (is it confirmed exclusive? http://www.gamespot.com/xbo...
Trails, Venetica (Never heard about them. Are they Xlive games?)

and sorry but I don't think the South Park thing is worth mentionning.

EDIT : We're not interrested in sales and selling points, here. We're only looking for the best games.

Oh and one more thing : In no way should the PC be counted out or seen as somehow less important. The PC is the last bastion of awesome hardcore gaming purity in the world, and people like you are destroying it. If you disobey, I'll punch my screen so hard that it'll reach you and your nose will start bleeding.

CadDad3139d ago

Thanks for the link. I've been looking for a good breakdown of major exclusive games to compare the consoles for awhile now.

I'm glad that it's actually exclusives and not 'console exclusives' because to me the term exclusive is a very specific thing. I also like to know what games I can't play anywhere else prompting me to buy all the hardware.

Did you make that one yourself? If so, kudos to you. I appreciate it.

-caddad

JonnyBigBoss3139d ago

You're a naive fool. You do realize that Halo Wars is the best exclusive for 360 so far this year, and we're 7 months into the year. The PS3 already had several quality titles such as inFamous, MLB 09 The Show and Killzone 2. Way to be a doofus.
