@EA: "Just announced: @masseffect2 will be released on 1/26 in NA (1/29 in EU)"
Nice, a lot earlier than I expected, also don't think January is too crowded, so should be good for sales.
so ps3 gets ME1 and ME2 on one bluray in Junish??
Not bad... if it comes to PS3 I hope PS3 owners actually buy it and support it. We all know PS3 owners don't buy as many games as 360 owners...FACT. Fanboys need to do less yappin and more buyin. BTW: Has anyone noticed that there have been NO Uncharted 2 day one sales figures announced yet? I would assume that the "best game this gen" would have sales records through the roof.
that's the same day as MAG's release date Darksiders: Wrath of War – 01/01/10 Dark Void - 01/10/10 *MAG (PS3) – 01/26/10 *ME2 (X360) - 01/26/10 and that looks pretty crowded to me.
Mass Effect 2 hasn't been announced for PS3 yet, sadly, nor has the first one. Regardless, day one buy.
Day one buy for sure, Mitch.
No one ever said "probably PS3" that was made up.
That's pretty cool. I thought it would come in Spring for sure. I'd wondered why they kept showing so much of the game so "early".
Let's recap; Darksiders, Dark Void, Army of Two: The 40th Day, Mass Effect 2 and Bayonetta in January and Lost Planet 2, Bioshock 2 and Dante's Inferno in the first weeks of February. That's a very crowded start to 2010.
Final Fantasy XIII in March. WKC sometime in February as well
@1.3 - Actually not too crowded according to your list. None of those games conflicts with each other (in terms of genre), and personally I'm wanting only ME2, because MAG wasn't my type of game tbh (from the beta).
Dante's Inferno is in January, too.
They're all mere preparation for the colossal God Of War III. =D
Damn, January is kind of early. I was expecting a Spring release, maybe March. Sounds good anyway. Will be picking this up for sure. Go BioWare!
I'm excited looking at 360's line-up for the next year to year 1/2. Halo ODST last month, Forza 3 and GTA Expansion this month, Left 4 Dead 2 next month, Mass Effect 2 in January, Splinter Cell: Conviction in Feb., Alan Wake in March, Crackdown 2 and Fable III sometime next year, Halo: Reach around September next year and there could be many announcements at 2010 E3 like there was this year, not to mention Natal and its games shipping. Possibly a new 360 design in 2010 too. I'm pretty stoked for Mass Effect 2, my favorite RPG ever :)
JANUARY!!!!!!! YESSSS!! Best way to start the year! with a fukin epic RPG!
Hell yeah. good start for the year 2010.
:O So early! Ahh! Gotta tell my friends to not spend all their cash on boxing day!
Gonna be sick!
can't wait to get my hands on this
Well I guess MAG will have to wait then because if I'm buying one of these two games on that day it'll have to be Mass Effect 2.
I am a big fan of a multiplayer experience...Mass effect 2 will be great but with no co op or multiplayer i can always come back to it
Damn... First 3 months looks crazy... Mass Effect, Splinter Cell, Bioshock and Battlefield: BC 2... Way to go...
Lost Planet 2 ,White Knight Story,GOW3..and someoneelse finish
Lost Planet 2 is still slated for Dec of '09 for NA...
I did not know ...i seen early 2010...my mistake and where did you see this because im waiting on it
wikipedia is typically where i get release dates
January ? Nice.
I will be playing it in the slow summer months.....maybe
Man...so many good games coming next year too. Mass Effect 2, Splinter Cell: Conviction, God of War III, Gran Turismo 5..... Uh...I can't remember the rest. What else?
Alan Wake, Bioshock 2, Fallout: Vegas, Halo Reach and probably many more that I can't remember and that are unannounced. Like Resistance 3 which I am guessing should be out in 2010 as Insomniac hasn't gone one year without releasing a game this gen.
January 2010 will mark the day when xbox360 DOMINATES in Software and SALES the first of many AAA games which will bombard the ps3 to the STONE AGE. Let the good times roll.
nah ill be getting MAG instead, thats more epic
Lol. Mag. Great concept, poorly executed.
-Splinter Cell Convection -Final Fantasy XIII -Mass Effect 2 -Alan Wake -White Knight Story
2010...man it's going to be so epic. Seriously guys, I think I'm finally going to feel the same feeling I had back in 98-99 when PlayStation was at its prime AND Sega came out with the DreamCast. 2010 will see gaming REALLY step it up a notch!
2010 will be the new 2007. So many AAA single player and multiplayer that will be played non stop until their sequels. Bioshock, Halo 3, CoD:4, Mass Effect, TF2, etc etc.
An expansion like ODST bombed 3 POS3 exclusives away.. an expansion pack.. lol COme on.. we really all know that PS3 users prefer 360 exclusives or multiplattform games instead of Sonys exclusives. I mean you will see uncharted2.. the first 200k will be made by bundles... thats the way how sony fakes their poor exclusiv sales.
Wait..don't 360 exclusive already dominate in sales?? God knows Halo Reach will break records. Off topic but, PS3 fanboys will never understand that although PS3 exclusives are of better quality, there not MORE DESIRED than 360 or Wii exclusives by the majority of people. Not a diss, just fact. Anyone notice that there has been NO articles related to Uncharted 2's day one sales? They did it for ODST, why not Uncharted 2? Isn't this supposed to be the best game of this gen so far? If so, why will more people buy the PS3 version of Modern Warfare 2 over Uncharted 2? "COme on.. we really all know that PS3 users prefer 360 exclusives or multiplattform games instead of Sonys exclusives." Exactly! PS3 owners don't buy as many games as 360 owners FACT.
Wow another release date that ShopTo.net knew before announcement. Released: 29/01/2010
Gamefly has actually had 1/26/2010 for weeks now. I usually get my release dates from Gamefly.
ShopTo was also showing release date as 29th for weeks. Both of them probably have a reliable source. And It's actually a good thing knowing a game's release date before official announcement. They're showing Halo: Reach's release date as September 2010. Let's see if they'll hit the bullseye this time :d...
The first of many Exclusive AAA Torpedo's are armed and ready Prepare Torpedo 1 code named Mass Effect 2 which will be blasted on January 2010 Destination Target .............................. .............................. . .............................S ony HQ.
yep... and pos3 users always say that they have the best quality games.. but they dont play them, caus etehy dont buy themm.. so why do the ytalk about them in every topic? seems they are very desperate..
lol @ your grammar.
Awesome day one buy for me :)
Lulz look the circle jerk, PS3 games will always be better, sorry :P I mean why the hell do I care if my game is more desired if its not as good as other games? Now slam that disagree button!
if you say so
"Lulz look the circle jerk, PS3 games will always be better, sorry :P" That's an OPINION. Ur saying that because Metacritic says PS3 games are better, which is B.S. Before Uncharted 2, Super Mario Galaxy was the highest rated exclusive ever and guess what, when I played it I thought it was crap. Why? Cause the game doesn't appeal to me. NO GAME appeals to EVERYONE and u can't set one standard for everyone. No one is denying that Uncharted 2 is a great action adventure experience, but saying that its better than every 360 exclusive is widely opinionated. GTA4 is still the highest rated game on metacritic, but MOST gamers including me felt it was missing that GTA charm. I thk ive made my point. Metacritic is NOT always reliable.
and all the fanboys want to do is talk about ps3. :)
Even Bioware understands the importance of the xbox 360 beta testing crew. I'm going to have a new pool built into my back yard to accommodate the tears from the bots, once ME1 and 2 hit.
Day one buy. This is easily my most anticipated game at the moment. Hopefully I'll be done with all my Christmas games by then. Sidenote: I hope Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2 come to PS3. The first is one is epic and should be experienced by everyone. If the second one lives up to the first and improves the small issues it had, it'll be another classic that everyone should experience as well. Play games, not consoles!
earlier than I thought, but releasing the same day as MAG, which is the game I got to go with since its online... ME I can pickup any time and play, since its not online...
I thought if they release this too close to Final Fantasy XIII would harm Final Fantasy XIII sales on the 360 but with at least a six week gap it might not effect it too much.
Wow, look at the bots bragging about teh salez!!! lmfao
Hey leave them alone, its all they have.
Wow, two Bioware titles within 3 months of each other. It's looking like January is going to a killer month for people that love western RPGS. With Divinity 2 coming out at the beginning and Mass Effect 2 at the end. Which kind of mess's up my plan of playing Mass Effect 1 at least one more time before Mass Effect 2.
deadrekoning its funny how you and your 360 fans diss we have no games and we dont buy games there was article today about how many U2 sold in japan you tool It's funny how you're bashing us with the no games speech and yet you're basically waiting a full year to play a multi plat (ME2 is on pc aswell you know = not exclusive). Shows you have no games, tell me a game ps3 fans would be jealous of playing thats been out this year and trumps a ps3 exclusive such as U2 in terms of graphics and gameplay? You're all waiting for multi plats to come out doesn't it seem your not getting enough exclusives for your heat box? U2 hasn't even been out a full day here in UK ffs it will give a article on first day sales when ready sony and nintendo are like MS and like to brag or give false information did wiisports have a article on its first day of sales? no so shutup
"It's funny how you're bashing us with the no games speech and yet you're basically waiting a full year to play a multi plat (ME2 is on pc aswell you know = not exclusive). Shows you have no games" U do know I own a PS3 right? Check my comment history. psn-deadreckoning666. FYI, the only games ive been waiting for all year are Modern Warfare 2 and Dead Nation when it comes out on PSN. U say nothing on 360 can match U2, so why is the PS3 version of Modern Warafare 2, a multiplat, going to sell more than Uncharted 2 if Uncharted 2 is so damn great. Sales represent what people WANT thats why they are important. Sales=fact and reviews=opinions. Which one weighs more??? If people widely believed, PS3 exclusives were better, then logically they would sell better than 360 exclusives no?
Sony fanboys have this huge inferiority complex because they own PS3. I own PS3 and don't feel that way, but I also own Xbox 360 also and know it's the better gaming console. Feels good to not lie to yourself.
at the same time if someone thinks otherwise is their oppinion any less valid then yours?
New game release dates are always accurate from that website. They are usually right. Lost Planet 2 is coming 2/23 for example.
the only reason it is launching in January is so that the 6 month window will pass and the PS3 version can be announced at E3 in June ( do the math ). So I will wait until after E3 before I buy it for my 360 just in case.
That announcement made the rest of my year!
"that is good news!!" - ron burgundy I really thought we'd see it around march, now to celebrate by burning my house down and dance among the ashes
gotta mark my calender
