this isnt a fanboy comment, seriously but i was woundering this sentence,

"The company also showed more than 30 upcoming gaming titles for their PS3 console which is struggling against both Nintendo Wii and Microsoft Xbox 360."

does anyone know exactly what these 30 titles are? as there are some titles coming out on PS2 which if where available in next gen gameplay/graphics then i would probadly be getting a PS3 sooner then i thought ;)

[EDIT]

@ PhinneousD (#1.1)

cheers, this is very good news as i am ALWAYS welcoming new games for my PSP! its a great piece of tech, and it hasnt had enough attention in my opinion. oh and i already have my eye on at least one more PS2 game this year =D

PhinneousD3831d ago

psp and ps2 games as well.

Just enjoy Halo 3 and forget about what is or isn't happening with Ps3.

I'm still happy hacking away on H2 on Legendary and am in no rush to buy Halo 3 because although it will be better(more vehicles, missions/maps, gimmicks, visuals), at its core is the original Halo game. The huge preorders are from the loyal fanbase built up of the last 5 years.

So just enjoy the game and stop the flaming.

first of all since you only joined N4G about 15hours ago, welcome. but when you say

"Only a fanboy would be asking what the 30 games are....
Just enjoy Halo 3 and forget about what is or isn't happening with Ps3."

i am NOT a fanboy, and why cant i ask whats comming out on the PS3? soon as though i am waiting for some titles that interest me rather then going along with the rest which are looking forward to games such as Lair. dont get me wrong i think it looks cool, but it doesnt interest me as much as other titles.

secondly you say "just enjoy Halo 3 forget about what is or isn't happening with Ps3." well like i said i am looking for a reason to buy one, but if there isnt any games which i will play then it makes more sence to wait till there out and maybe i will be lucky and get a price cut. also i am not going to be buying Halo 3 straight away.

I'm still happy hacking away on H2 on Legendary and am in no rush to buy Halo 3 because although it will be better(more vehicles, missions/maps, gimmicks, visuals), at its core is the original Halo game.

congrads i hope you like playing it on Legendary, like i said above i am not going to be buying it straight away either, and if i was a Halo fanboy i would still be playing the Beta (yes i have played it, its ok quite fun, but at the moment i prefer Gears of War).

"The huge preorders are from the loyal fanbase built up of the last 5 years."

i never said anything about this, and yes its true as i have hardly played Halo 1/2 (brother has Halo 1, played Halo 2 around a mates once) so naturally i HAVNT pre-ordered a copy, and i probadly wont.

"So just enjoy the game and stop the flaming."

well i NEVER said anything wrong about either system, and like i said in the first comment

"does anyone know exactly what these 30 titles are? as there are some titles coming out on PS2 which if where available in next gen gameplay/graphics then i would probadly be getting a PS3 sooner then i thought ;)"

which i personally think is a genuine comment as everyone wants better gameplay and graphics, which is the point in next gen consoles, and also i own a PSP, PS2, Xbox 360, PC (yes i am a PC gamer aswell) so, because there HAS been soo much news lately and its hard to keep up with it all i SIMPLY asked if ANYONE knew what the 30 titles where, as i STILL play my PS2 sometimes, i STILL play my PSP and especially with the recent news of a personal favourite game coming to the PS2 i was curious to know if anyone had heard of these games comming to the next gen consoles.

so you stop flaming when you say stuff like

"Only a fanboy would be asking what the 30 games are"

otherwise i can see you going to 1 bubble from alot of users being annoyed by you, or maybe your just a fanboy which has been on 1 bubble for a while and has never gone up so you decided to make another account, i dont know but we will see i spose.

MySwordIsHeavenly3831d ago

If any of you have played the Beta yet, you'd know that Sony doesn't have much to worry about...

If anything, Halo should be kneeling before Socom!!! It has a bigger fanbase and more online users...

neogeo3831d ago

Both system will be pumping out great games, come september?
And this is a bad thing because??????

flipflop3826d ago

I just logged on to one of my other accounts to find that Virtual gamer tried to ban my umbagumba account for exposing him for the idiot he is, and this further proves his retardedness. How FN pathetic do you have to be to try to ban somone because your proven to be retarded? virtual gamer is a b!tch. You will now get it a lot worse.

SuperSaiyan43831d ago

May I ask with what exactly? Over 10million 360 owners, over 4million HALO 3 pre-orders in USA and just under 2million in Europe...And still 4 months to go...

Err this sounds like Sony are just pooing their pants...

Oh and I have a PS3 and 360 so no need to flame me.

gta_cb3831d ago (Edited 3831d ago )

although you may be disagreed with, or you may have your bubbles taken away from etc because of your choice of words i do KINDA agree, as stated in comment #1,2 i am questioning this article as i dont see any GREAT sequals with loads of followers coming out between now and end of september.

If Final Fantasy (cant say MGS4 as its not multi platform) but yeh if Final Fantasy came out between now and end of september, then i would agree with this article and would love to see what happens like which sold more etc, but with the titles mentioned in the article i can not see how this article is really valid... remember this is my "opinion" and dont argue as we are all entitled to our own opinion.

now as all the titles arnt listen in the article i am prepared to say i was wrong, but as for now i agree with SuperSaiyan4 (although not with his choice of words)

so like i said in comment #1 does anyone know what these other titles are? (which would add up to 30)

[EDIT]

@ XboxOZ360

yeh i know it has been pushed back, i was just giving an example as i dont know alot of hugely anticipated games for the PS3, but i know FF is deffinatly one of them.

XboxOZ3603831d ago

Final fantasy has been pushed to Spring '08 . . http://www.gamepro.com/news... so scratch that one off the huge list of games . . . And, Haze has just been un-exclusived by Free-Radical . . . countering to internet claim that the game was to be a PS3 "exclusive" . . . It will be coming to the Xbox360 and PC, just not right at the same time

Which is a good thing really, as it's a great game, and would be lost in amongst all the other AAA titles coming out at that time, and seen as a wise move on Ubi's behalf actually. They have 6 major titles hittingthe shelves in the later part of the year, several of those Xbox360 exclusives . . .so one more OFF that list won't hurt either the company, or the gamers alike.

Xbot_Killer3829d ago

with this 4 million pre-orders nonsense?? It was a stupid rumor started by an xbot site which has since been debunked. Their source were local gamestops in the chicago area, gamestop nationally only accounts for 20% of the 360 market out there so how can they have 4 million pre-orders??

not to mention that they already said this was false..

stupid fanboys make the world go round I guess

gta_cb3831d ago (Edited 3831d ago )

oh and ALSO the title

"Sony preparing for Halo 3 release in September"

well unless all these greatly anticipated games are coming out before this september or in september, which will be the same month as Halo 3, i cant see how there "preparing" as we all knew these titles (which where mentioned in the story, as im not sure what the full 30 titles are) where going to be released...

(oh and by the way i am not trying to annoy the fanboys, i am just questioning this article).

[EDIT]

you should all know business' will compete against each other otherwise the opposition will just walk in and take it all (like they say) so all my comments so far havnt been saying that Sony are not "preparing". all my comments are trying to say/ask is how are they preparing? as there biggest titles arnt, and shouldnt be rushed just to counter act MS' release of Halo 3, so with this in mind, how are they preparing?.... or is this article/news thread wrong?....

thats all im saying, just think about it.

G_CodeMonkey3831d ago

Microsoft will have so much media attention that Sony will need to do something to draw attention away, in any way they can. They may have some new games yet unannounced they may drop or lower the price of the PS3, announce some new hardware, or any combination. Halo3 will likely sell some hardware--the question is how much; the media frenzy will be more free advertising for M$ (though they'll also be doing their own).

Really, "nothing to see here" -- as its common sense Sony will do some of this to draw attention away. gCM

CrazzyMan3831d ago (Edited 3831d ago )

on SGD sony already showed some games which "I can honestly say that I have finally seen PS3 games I do not believe could be running on the 360, at least at this point in time." © Adam Sessler G4.

and this is only the beginning, only just some 1st-2nd party games + some new like Socom and Pain.

well, how do i know? that`s simple - on GDC07 they show LBP and Home, on SGD Amazing 1-2 party games, and now they probably will show almost everything that they have, and probably leaving something for TGS07 in september. =)
PREPARE FOR NEXTGEN! =)

Adamalicious3831d ago

to hear Sess say that. X-play has been HARSH on the PS3 since launch - aside from Resistance that is.

crunkthug3831d ago

man f*** this game
i hate it. i dont understand why this game so popular is??may be becoz of the gameplay but one thing is sure:
the graphics r shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii iiiiiiiit!!

Captain Tuttle3831d ago

I'll take great gameplay over graphics any day. Both is best of course.
