SevWolf  +   2378d ago
Yeh this IS a forum post..pfft, most of the games there are great but I mean...Guitar Hero 5, MW 2, and MAfia II(even though i am anticipating the latter) could be replaced with Ratchet and Clank, Uncharted 2, and Modnation Racer....Im keeping AC2 cause that's shaping up to be one hell of a game

@ the matrix
you can get themf or $50 so its not a big hole in the wallet, also what i did was ad a quick fuse so if there is a power surge it wont fry the laser again
TheRealSpy  +   2378d ago
if this was an 360 forum post, it would already be reported as lame and be gone. but since it's another ps3 suck off article, it gets to stay.
Cenobia  +   2378d ago
@TheRealSpy are a terrible spy.

You're supposed to hide your intense hatred of the PS3 and then throw it in somewhere like a subliminal message. That way you'll stealthily subvert the PS3 fans.

For example, I'm totally talking about rainbows and unicorns right now,
but Unchartedguyisgaybecausehis shirtishalftucked unicorns are pretty ponies with horns.

That one was free.

No Uncharted 2 ?

Are they for real ?
Syronicus  +   2378d ago
Without Uncharted 2 or Ratchet & Clank...
The list nearly fails. Sorry, but to exclude two of the most anticipated games this season is a big mistake.
The Wood  +   2378d ago
Most of these plus some not mentiond can be put into a few of words
First/Second Party Studios. Blame them for being broke

I'm a serious gamer
I also have a Master's degree and a decent job.

The title of this article gives gamers bad rep. Maybe I'm just too old and don't realize teenagers just don't have their priorities straight; I was there once...

PS3 games coming out = awesome.
Article title = Fail IMHO.

That's all of my books. They costs roughly $770 so yeah. Fortunately for me, I have two scholarships that pay for both of my tuition. So once tuition is paid off, I have about $3,000 extra dollars to blow.
saimcheeda  +   2378d ago
i have all
ps consoles and im in college!
CryofSilence  +   2378d ago
Along with Uncharted 2, White Knight Chronicles is missing. :(
cranium  +   2378d ago
And Ratchet & Clank. I don't know why that game isn't getting the attention it deserves :(
harrisk954  +   2378d ago
Guitar Hero 5????
No Uncharted 2 and yet they have another Guitar Hero on the list??? Huh??? If they felt so compelled to have a music game on there, wouldn't Rock Band: Beatles be a better choice? And 11 games? 11 is such an arbitrary number, they might as well as made it 12 and included Uncharted on the list anyway.

That was not the best list I've read...
...Uncharted 2 wasn't there, Gran Turismo 5, and since you're going into 2010, The Agency, L.A. Noir (?), and others would be better candidates.
saimcheeda  +   2378d ago
the last guardian, agent and R&C CIT were missing

Because they have very poor judgment.

Most of these individual's education is based on the PS3 User Manual and only contact to people is through HOME.

It's obvious that Obama is a huge fan of the PS3 and home.

Considering the fact that Home and PSN lacks or use voice so little this is understandable.

OBAMA is a home fan, why wasn't i aware of that.
Saaking  +   2378d ago
You moron, Obama is one of the greatest orators I've ever heard.
Obama  +   2378d ago
Can't blame bladestar since he is a supporter of Palin.

What games on the 360 are you playing bladestar?

Bladestar: I..I play all of them.
Bladestar  +   2378d ago
"Obama is one of the greatest orators I've ever heard. " hahahaha!


Obama is one of the greater Teleprompter orators the world have seen.

He is known for it. For not being able to give a speech without reading it directly from a teleprompter.

This is why he sucks so bad when asked questions where he's not able to read the answers from a screen.

You obviously have no idea what makes a good orator. A good orator is able to use his own words to deliver his message. Obama falls apart if he is not reading from a TV.

Careful bladestar, your racism is showing
swiftshot93  +   2378d ago
This is the sh1ttiest list I've ever seen. Guitar Hero 5? Seriously this list makes the PS3 line-up look poor, when its far from it.
militant07  +   2378d ago
Im multiplatformer.

college free :), my country pay for me if my percentge passed 80%
shadow2797  +   2378d ago
"Previously known as Massive Action Game"

No, it's always been MAG. They just clarified what MAG stood for.

It's a decent list, I would have included Uncharted 2 instead of Guitar Hero 5, though.
poopsack  +   2378d ago
yeah lol its not like they showed it off as "this is our new title, Massive Action Game"
Mr_Controversy  +   2378d ago
No thanks. Uncharted should be there.
GiantEnemyCrab  +   2378d ago
Agreed on Uncharted but I would say don't sleep on Mafia II, it's looking to be a great mobster game.
Persistantthug  +   2378d ago
Heck yeah for Mafia 2
That game looks to be a day 1 purchase to me.
SaiyanFury  +   2378d ago
I agree, there should've been a few others on the list like Uncharted 2 and the upcoming Ratchet & Clank Future game, but it's not bad as it goes. Most gamers know what they're looking forward to despite somebody's own opinion list. Lord knows I'm looking forward to Assassin's Creed 2. I love the first and no doubt it will give me many hours of play. Another one could've been Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, but that's for another day.
Aclay  +   2378d ago
I'm in my 3rd year of college and I'm sure I'll have plenty of money for both games and School, as I've always have.

There was some good games listed, and many of them I'm looking forward to, but it should have been a crime not to include Uncharted 2.

The concept of I Am Alive sounds interesting, but I haven't seen or heard enough from the game yet for me to get even remotely excited for it.

A 4 out of 10.

Extra points taken off for assuming that all ps3 owners are in their senior year of high school.
na2ru1  +   2378d ago
thought I was the only one.
tdogchristy90  +   2378d ago
Being a college student I can atest to the fact that your broke no matter what! The fact that this is going to be such a great fall is just going to make it worse. I personaly only find 1-2 games a year, this fall it'll be 6 in a 6 month time span lol!!!
Memo-Xen x3100  +   2378d ago
I already don't have money.
I'll be working overtime for Uncharted2, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, Demon Souls, Import version of Siren "Siren : New Edition" and some new shoes.
Figboy  +   2378d ago
i don't agree with that list at all, but that's just me.
the games that will burn a hole in my wallet in the next 6-12 months are:

1) Uncharted 2
2) Ratchet and Clank Future: ACIT
3) God of War 3
4) White Knight Chronicles
5) Heavy Rain
6) Final Fantasy Vs XIII
7) Gran Turismo 5
8) The Last Guardian
9) Demon Souls
10) Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2
12) Borderlands
f789790  +   2378d ago
Sucks for me
All I can afford to buy on your list is R&C, Heavy Rain, Uncharted 2. I'm saving FFXIII for when I have time next summer.

GiantEnemyCrab  +   2378d ago
I see others noticed as well but the only game I plan on purchasing this year for the PS3 is Uncharted 2. Which is also my most wanted and probably would be happy if that was all I had. :)
Lady Gigi  +   2378d ago
agreed, uncharted 2, definitely
HDgamer  +   2378d ago
Very lame forum post
vShinobi  +   2378d ago
So they're saying PS3 gamers are dumb?
a_squirrel  +   2378d ago
No, it's saying that only people who go to school are smart enough to buy a ps3
JJFNIGHTS80  +   2378d ago
Uncharted 2. And plus I never have money to go to college to begun with. I went to Community college for few months then stop until I get better pay then I'll go back to College. Plus my 10% discount helps me with games so I always have few spare change to buy some upcoming games.
