Will The Xbox 360 Dominate This Holiday Season

Following on from the recent "Top 10 Playstation 3 Games That Will Dominate Your Wallet This Holiday Season - Gamekicker.com" Here is a list of the XBOX 360 games that will dominate the news, sales and possibly some of those family feuds over the upcoming holiday period. Again, not all the games on the list have fixed in stone launch dates as yet but they are as of this writing all currently scheduled for launch sometime between now and mid to end Jan and all of them are currently taking pre-orders. If the chubby bearded guy in the red suit does not bring you at least 1 of these, he needs a good ass kicking!

G3TDOWN2983d ago

Uncharted 2
GT5
MW2
Fifa 10
AC2

299 for console that ONLY DOES everything...

people won't pay 200 for a console that ONLY DIES In 2 weeks, I still have my SEGA from like 8 years ago but my Xbox 360 died like 2 times already I MEAN COMON use your head

sunnygrg2983d ago

Didnt you get the memo? GT5 isnt coming this year.

But the 360 won't dominate this holiday season. The PS3 is at a price that is too enticing for your average consumer to pass up. Bluray is slowly becoming the mainstream media source replacing DVDs. And keep in mind, the Wii also had a price drop.

deadreckoning6662983d ago (Edited 2983d ago )

I thk the PS3 has the potential to win the holiday in terms of sales AND quality games. But the Wii will win the year as far as sales..NO QUESTIONS.

As far as who dominates the year in sales, it'll be a repeat of 2007 and 2008:

1.Wii
2.Xbox 360
3.PS3

@Darkeyes- Because M$ will undoubtedlty do something within this or the next month to offset what Sony is doing. Ur forgetting that M$ can drop the price ta $250 anytime they goddamn well please, Id say this is the best time for them ta do it. If everthg stays the same as it is now, then yeah sure, PS3 can beat the 360 in sales, but M$ will do somethg.

LOL @ the disagrees, look if ya wanna prove me wrong bookmark this and on 12/31/09 we'll see whose predictions turn out to be the right.
If u guys thk that M$ will allow Sony ta take them out of second place that easily, then ur delusional and u have no idea how this industry works.

"2 price cuts in year are a bad thing anyway"- Have u ever heard of the expression "desperate times call for desperate measure"?

Darkeyes2983d ago

Dead, can you please explain me the logic behind your post..... The latter part. If the PS3 will dominate the holidays, how can the 360 win the final year sales o_0

Cause before PS3 price cut, it was 0.1 million behind and now is sufficiently ahead of the 360 by a million (since it sold 1.2 million last month)... So if the PS3 wins last half, it wins the year.... Simple logic.

CrazzyMan2983d ago (Edited 2983d ago )

no

Not anymore, eva

beans2983d ago

The gamers will win this holiday and thats all we need to worry about. If I were actually making money off one of them I would then give a F*%k.

somerandomdude2983d ago (Edited 2983d ago )

I was just getting ready to post the same thing but you beat me to it.

The 360 has not increased in sales since the price cut like it did in 2008, how is it even possible for the 360 to have more holiday sales when the PS3 is still ahead as of today?

@dead Sony can drop their price to 250 as well, but wont because they are going strong in sales. (2 price cuts in year are a bad thing anyway)

Mr Logic2983d ago

So let me get this straight.

Out of 10 games only 1 is exclusive and 1 is console exclusive. Did I miss anything?

Maddens Raiders2983d ago (Edited 2983d ago )

looks like someone's gonna get some hits.

HolyOrangeCows2983d ago (Edited 2983d ago )

....but It shouldn't.

I mean, come on. The Ps3 is cheaper, has a load of exclusive games this year, and they don't charge you $50 for P2P online play and Twitter.

Venomish2983d ago

as a matter of facts. who the hell cares if the xbox dominate or not.
ps3 has plenty of exclusives that are not only great but excellent GOTY contenders or at least best of their respective genre. so in my book me, a ps3 owner, is winning regardless.

GamerSciz2983d ago

You are correct sir.

Forza 3 - exclusive
L4D2 - Console exlusive (still on PC so it's considered multiplat)

Then all the other games are either on PC or PS3 or both.

Either way, this holiday is a good day to be a gamer. Just the damn price of games ($60 a pop) sucks but oh well.

RememberThe3572983d ago

Deal. I'll hold you to it. But we're counting the world, not just the US.

HolyOrangeCows2983d ago

We need more strict boundaries than that!

How about hardware sales from September-December?
:D

likedamaster2982d ago

Typical PS3 fanboys flooding 360 articles led by the one and only... Bubbles.

Anyone who thinks the Xbox 360 will dominate is forgetting the Wii.

Knghtz2983d ago

Yeah let's just assume the Wii will win so we can compare the two consoles who might actually be close to each other in terms of sales, lol.

Ju2983d ago (Edited 2983d ago )

The Wii only has a solid lead left in the US market. Japan is already on par with the PS3, in Europe the PS3 is closing in. I would even go so far and say, it will be interesting to see, if the Wii can keep its lead after the price drop wears off (which current sales rely on).

dalibor2983d ago

I think that all 3 will in fact do good but I have a feeling that the Wii will pull ahead(total speculation). It is only $200 after all. It will be a battle for the 360 & PS3 though b/c they both are at a similar price point but have totally different games. We should all sit back & see who reigns on top this holiday. In the meantime I better get my Santa outfit ready & get some side $$$, I need it haha.

creeping judas2984d ago

Considering that the article does not have anything to do with 360 dominating this holiday season, and is only about the 10 best games on the 360 this holiday season. makes me think the title is worded this way to only get hits??

Farmhand2984d ago

dominate the PS2, what is that cat smoking!!

jk

dont really know how it will turn out this holiday, but it sure will be interesting.

Keith Olbermann2984d ago

but, Ill be playing uncharted, demons souls, assassins creed (multi),ratchet, god of war collection and borderlands (multi) throughout the holidays. Game on!!!
