Lewis from TheSixthAxis.com takes an optimistic look at Sony's 2010 lineup.
Unlike 2008 and 2009, they'll have some competition, but probably it will still be Sony's year. IB4: Bubububu the sales Try playing games.
Yeah, 2010 has a lot of big-name games coming out on a lot of platforms, not just the PSP, PS2, and PS3. Er, wait. What? Did I just throw the PS2 and PSP in there? I guess many people forget that the PS3 isn't Sony's only platform. Yeah, the PS3 is going to have an amazing 2010, but so will Sony's other two platforms, I'm betting. So, it's a very safe bet to say that 2010 will be Sony's year, not just because of the incredibly strong lineup on the PS3, but also due to the lineups on the PS2 and PSP.
lol I start just laughing my ass off when these articles pop up. Half of the games to be released in '10 havn't been announced yet, and people are already looking at '10 like they have the final list. Heck '09 isn't over yet.
The biggest RPG release FINAL FANTASY 13 Also in 2010: FINAL FANTASY 14 The biggest racing game release: Gran Turismo 5 God of war 3 Heavy Rain The last guardian And plenty more. versus one exclusive for the 360 (halo reach) For sure, 2010 will be another PS3 year.
Actually thats very hard to say because how do you determine who has the best year? If were talking sales then if M$ makes a Natal bundle and sells it for $300, Sony won't win saleswise. Sony seems to have the better quality exclusives next year, and thats great. But didn't Sony's have better quality exclusives this year as well? M$ just had their WORST year ever with the 360 and STILL overcame the PS3 saleswise in the PS3's BEST year. How is 2010 going to be any different? In 2010 M$ actually HAS games... @above- So ur saying that Halo Reach is the ONLY exclusive coming out on the 360 next year? Halo Reach Splinter Cell: Conviction Mass Effect 2 Crackdown 2 Alan Wake Fable 3 and possibly L4D3 We all know N4G is biased, but the fact that the guy above me is getting agreed with is just sad. He can't even fanboy right. He didn't even mention Agent, Modnation Racers, The Agency, Free Realms, and possibly Starhawk. @fucadastates- "and we all now you guys like your dont-think-just-shoot-my-mama- says-i-have-a-big-gun kinda games(HALO and MW2)." I suggest you read my comment history before putting me in a group. U would have found that I am a proud PS3 only owner and soon to be 360 owner as well. As far as ur sales argument, I live in in the U.S. therefore I only care about U.S sales. How do PS3 sales in Japan or Europe affect my PS3 experience in NA?
that all depends how good natal is and what games it brings to table it hasn't won me over yet
i disagree. I think 2008 was very close in games between the ps3 and 360. While the ps3 got 2008 and 2009, it was closer in 2008. You can't say their wasn't competition with gears and fable, because those are major games. I will give you 2009 though. 2010 will be a strong year for both. But we have to wait and see the quality of the games before we make a judgement
at deadreckoning666, worldwide the ps3 outsold the xbox360 in 2009. the only market i did not "win" was in the us. and we all now you guys like your dont-think-just-shoot-my-mama- says-i-have-a-big-gun kinda games(HALO and MW2).
This is about exclusives that matter. And in the gaming world, only a handful of titles actually MATTER. Grand theft auto, Final Fantasy, Gran Turismo, Metal Gear, Halo, Mario, Call of Duty and a few others. These are games that make OR BREAK a console. To be frank with you, MS only has Halo. Everything else you listed...yea you know, Im sure they are nice games. But they hardly have any impact at all in the greater scheme of things. Unless, of course, you believe that Alan Wake is a system seller and that Alan Wake is going to be a turning point in the current console war... Get real. And btw half those titles you mentioned, are not exclusives. Im sure you were told the same thing a hundred times in a week. So you are either incredibly thick or you are living in denial.
Bubububu the sales
Like all the other years, the gamers will win out more than any single company.
There is no doubt that PS3 will definitely have a great 2010. PS3 Exclusives -M.A.G. -White Knight Chronicles -Star Ocean: The Last Hope International -The Last Rebellion -AGENT -God of War 3 -Gran Turismo 5 -ModNation Racers -Heavy Rain -The Last Guardian -Final Fantasy Versus XIII -Trinity Universe -Atelier Rorona -Ar Tonelico 3 -3D Dot Heroes -Trinity: Zill O'll Zero -Final Fantasy XIV -The Agency -DC Universe Online -Free Realms -Yakuza 3&4 -Hopefully Tales of Vesperia Not to mentioned the rumored titles - Syphon Filter 5 http://ps3.ign.com/articles... - Twisted Metal http://ps3.ign.com/articles... - Starhawk http://www.thesixthaxis.com... - Resistance 3 http://ps3.ign.com/articles... - CyberConnect2 working Title http://www.examiner.com/exa... But Sales wise, I think the PS3 will sell evenly with the 360 considering its cheaper and Gow3/FF13/GT5 releases in the first half. Motion Controls I believe won't do any wii numbers neither will Natal as there both merely just add ons for an experience that u can already play on the Wii & Eyetoy or just using a controller.
Why is it that each year has to be dubbed "The year of 'insert console of choice'"? Why can't each year be the year of the gamers? So many great games and if you have all the systems then you aren't missing out on ANYTHING. Set all preconceived notions aside and get the console you swear you would never get and live life in the middle. Just because you now would be playing on the opposition doesnt mean you turn your back to the other completely.
Sony had good year 2009. It was Sony´s year.
the PS3 has been outselling the 360 year on year worldwide every year. For the last 6 months it's been beating the 360 by 150,000 units a month. How is the 360 beating it saleswise when every game sells better on it aside MW2 and it sells more worldwide? Because its very close in NA? so what? in europe, japan and other regions the ps3 has constantly raped the 360 in sales. @ below GT5 is a HUGE seller though. The franchise has sold 56 million and gt4 sold 13 million. Thats when the ps2 install base was at 30 million. Plus the prologue only sold 2 million. Now think about it, when GT4 was out it sold 13 million, yet the prologue only sold 2, GT5 prologue sold 4.9 million... GT5 will top 10 million worldwide lifetime sales easily.
2010 will be the year of the gamer. Each system is putting out a ton of great looking games. I do think that Sony has the better line up of exclusives though, but still MS is giving you good reasons to own a 360. @deadreckoning: (lol I always feel like I have to respond to you.) If your going to say that you only care about sales in the US then don't imply that your talking about sales in general. "M$ just had their WORST year ever with the 360 and STILL overcame the PS3 saleswise in the PS3's BEST year." There is nothing about that first comment that indicates that you are only talking about the US. Plus, if you want to talk about how a console is doing, don't you need to look at the big picture? Sales in one country or region may be great but in an other not great at all.
I don't know WTF a "console Year" means Seriously, if its only about salez, well is [email protected] then I always thought that when someone talks about a Console year was for the line-up of games knowing that is the more important thing about gaming This is Sony's Year cuz of the HUGE line-up and next year will be no different, I'll definitely need more money to spend on all the games I want Gamers FTW!!!
Next Year will be the year of Broke Gamers who have to buy all the awesome games coming out on all 3 consoles..... Get over it all 3 consoles have a great line up next year
But in term of sales, it will take sometime, before PS3 will be able to outsell Wii most of time during the year. Though, of`course after GT5, GoW3, FFXIII, AGENT and other games releases, PS3 will have a better chance.
Sony's line up sounds really good, but then next year we hear about almost the same games with some newly announced games far into the future. Yep, the list hardly changed for the new year and we get next year is Sony's year again. Among other games, I have been hearing about GoW3 and GT5 for years now! That is why I always take a Sony's list of exclusives with a grain of salt until a date or even a time frame is announced.
Deadreckoning, dragun and anyone else who is confused about exclusives as well. Please refer to my blog on exclusives. http://n4g.com/up/16238/Blo...
Why did everyone completely ignore that I wasn't talking about sales? :-/
Above everything, both Sony and Microsoft have great games next year and I recommend single-console owners to buy whatever it is you don't have, it'll be worth it!
The only thing i'm sure is that GT5 and FFXIII will be sold in the millions the first week. NO BS EITHER! 2010 = Year of Great GAMES! Just check out the lineup coming out for all the systems *drools*
At the end... Ill have an orgasm after playing GOW3 iuuu
The thing I like about this list is that most of the games are unique, and there is not much like them on other platforms: -M.A.G. - 256 multiplayer only on PS3 (although I don't like this game) -White Knight Chronicles - The first big next-gen RPG for PS3 -God of War 3 - One of (if not the) best hack n slash series available -Gran Turismo 5 - The best driving simulator, includes Nascar and WRC! -ModNation Racers - Kart racer with track creation, LBP + racing = Win -Heavy Rain - Nothing like it on any other platform this gen! -The Last Guardian - Nothing like it on any other platform this gen! GOTY 2010 most likely -Final Fantasy Versus XIII - Dark RPG for Nomura fans -3D Dot Heroes - Could be coming to 360, but 3D Zelda clone FTW -Final Fantasy XIV, The Agency, DC Universe Online, Free Realms - Don' care about MMORPGs tbh, but for those that do, there's a lot! -Yakuza 3&4 - Play the Japanese demo, it's awesome.
Yeah Sony could easily win I can't think of other games selling more than GT5 and GOW 3
FF13, COD7(or w/e), madden, and halo reach?
GOW isnt a huge seller to be honest it will do around 2-3 million worlwide
Don't get me wrong, it looks like an amazing game. I'm in fact looking forward to play the remake of GoW 1&2, but if anything KZ2 should have sold insane numbers. Shooters just have a huge market in the US and sells very well in Europe. Games like Ninja Gaiden, Bayonetta and GoW don't sell as well. Shooters in the US. Racing in Europe. JRPGs in Japan. (lol, unless you are Microsoft) Everything else is peanuts in market size!
Bungie is clearly taking the piss, He knows Reach will outsell GT5 and GOW3 combined. I know GT series is a big seller but honestly with the current PS3 installer base I just don't see it. Even though GT has sold ton's of games on past gen systems I just don't see it having the attract rate of halo. And GOW3 doesn't even count if am honest it didn't sell at all on the PS2 if you consider how many PS2's where around at the time. It's attract rate was terrible I don't even see it doing 2 mill to be honest. Of course to gamers sales don't matter but when it comes to software sales which to be honest is what matters for Sony and Microsoft I see the 360 taking 2010. With the relaunch of the 360 to Sony really has got there work cut off for them. I know am gona get disagrees for this but hey its N4G a Sony fanboy haven.
Sony won this year and with promising lineup, more new PS3 owners, 2010 will be sony's year.
Yeah, probably, but things aren't going to be so bad on the 360 side either :) i'm so excited for 2010, gaming-wise.
but teh halo reach 0wnz alLS!!!1!!!11!! LOL
i starting to hate these pipors trying to make a list full of exclusive sht and state that it is exclusive as well...lol while i understand for those who dont kno(guess there are some) Exclusive(adjetive) is: excluding or having power to exclude b : limiting or limited to possession, control, or use by a single individual or group. so concording to this @ X ziyad X To be honest its xbox year but i think 2010 xbox year bucz it have huge line-up : Halo reach-exclusive Fable 3-exclusive SC:C dont get what is this game here...flop lol Alan wake- NOT exclusive, also pc mass effect 2- NOT exclusive Crackdown 2 Exclusive maybe - Natal - well exclusive PGR 5 as well exclusive and Cod MW2 DLC .. yes i now its Exclusive time .. but maybe its come out in PS3 2011(whatever) Half life 2 : episode 3(in ps3 also) and RPG from Mistwalker...who cares. and evrey year Rare dev 2 game remake AAA >>>>>>LOL Sony line-up : MAG. exclusive GOW3. exclusive Heavy rain. exclusive GT5 ...as well The Last Guardian... as well what you lacked Modnattion FFxiii(lol if u mention these than i will say ps version has the best experience in this game. FF v xiii killzone 3 resistance 3 and so so so so on...that i dont want to repeat it again, around 15 or more exclusive as well, so lack it off dud, sony years is 2010 as well, but microsht has some bullet there as well.
They aren't exclusives but you cant play them on the PS3. which means they strengthen the 360 line-up against PS3's. It's going to be a close year I think.
This year is going to be a whole other show. Unless sony's motion controller can garner as much attention as natal I don't see sony pulling out ahead this year. And with one of the largest, if not the largest game being a multiplatform release (FF13) it'll be hard for sony to make up an exclusive to fill it's place. Exclusives game wise it's going to be close but again I see the 360 with a stronger lineup, even without Halo Reach.
Two of the largest franchises in the gaming industry are releasing a game exclusive to the PS3 platform: God of War and Gran Turismo. I agree that FF13 is going to be a big game but you're fooling yourself if you think FF13 is going to sell poorly on the PS3 just because it's a multiplatform game. Edit: since you talked about doubting that Sony would "pull ahead", I assumed you were talking about sales. And the Splinter Cell series has been mediocre this gen so far. I'm not saying Conviction will be bad, but the series hasn't been AAA for a while now. And Halo: Reach....okay, it may appeal to Halo fans, but I have huge doubts it will break any grounds or impress any non-Halo gamers. Edit:Edit: Splinter Cell is medicore by today's standards, and the series hasn't had a game in quite some time. I'm sure I'm not the only one who remembers the multiple 9/10 scores Perfect Dark: Zero received, yet if we look back, did it deserve those scores? Yeah right...
splintercell conviction and halo reach are also 2 of gaming's largest franchises releasing exclusively on the 360. You have a moot point. I'm not saying anything about sales, I'm talking purely about the quantity of quality titles. Edit: your opinion on the series thus far is not in tandem with the rest of gamers out there. some of the awards garnered by the latest splintercell: * Received IGN's award for Best Xbox Action Game of 2006 * Received IGN's award for "Best Original Score of 2006" for the Xbox 360 * Nominated by the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences for "Best Action/Adventure Game", "Best Male Performance", "Best Sound Design" and "Best Original Music" of 2006 * Won TeamXbox's "Best Action Game" and "Game of the Year" for the Xbox version. * Won GameSpy's "Game of the Year" and "Best Action Game" for the Xbox version. * Won Official Xbox Magazine's Action-Adventure Game of the Year - February 2007 * Won Official Xbox Magazine's Co-op Game of the Year - February 2007 to me that seems more then 'mediocre'. As for your halo comments, the exact same could be said for GT and GOW. Remember that the sales for GT are so high because it was packaged with the ps2 slim and that gow sold what? ~3-5 million on a console with an install base of 120 million. Honestly, what are you trying to prove here?
isnt splinter cell multiplat? forgive me if im wrong
and as of right now alan wake is not in development for the pc, so it too is an exclusive too. it's console exclusive, I wont be able to play it on my ps3 or wii, so that seems pretty exclusive if you ask me. here are just some of the well known franchises coming for the 360 in 2010: mech warrior splinter cell conviction mass effect 2 fable 3 perfect dark hd halo reach that doesn't include games like alan wake crackdown 2 venetica metro 2033 and project natal I don't understand how gamers can even argue this.
splinter cell conviction is on teh pc too XI so it is not an xbox exclusive
Image Below = You
lol i got disagrees for pointing out that splinter cell is not an xbox 360 exclusive, becuase it is on the PC too. must be some insecure people about. is it timed exclusive to xbox maybe?
2010 YEAR OF THE GAMER!!!!!!!!!
your reasoning doesn't work with "fanboys"... your attempt at logic will be disagreed until infinity. take that rational thinking elsewhere.
someone disagree'd with you...=( sad
Every year is sonys year. i dont even have to ask. everything else is last gens left overs
Well Sony pretty much had 2009 nice and neatly wrapped for themselves. With GOW3, Heavy Rain, and Gran Turismo 5 already slated for within the first QUARTER of 2010, Yeah Sony already has the early assets to easily take 2010 as well.
Every year is the year of sony, awesome games that never disappoint it's gamers. Not multiplats that have glitches or hype.
09 was sonys year, I mean Uncharted 2 is taking all GOTY awards and there has been many great games released this year for it.
DTOP SAYING THAT
i know most people here love sales, so according to vg chartz the gap is now only 6.2 million. becuase ps3 has outsold the xbox 360 every year since launch, (according to vgchartz) so its safe to assume it will continue to do so in 2010
"will 2010 be sony's year again?"
ps3fanboys say this in: 2006,2007,2008,2009....
if the 360 and wii never existed Sony would have had this gen in the bag hahahaha losers
Xbox fanboys say this in: 2006
This is very simple to answer Halo Reach.
And if heat never existed the 360 might be a reliable console.
Sony bring the noise in 2010 heavy rain,gow3,wkc,gt5,modnation,re sistance3, the agency,yakuza 3,agent,dc universe.
@ps3hasnogames: They never said that about 2006 or 2007. They said it about 2008, 2009 and now 2010.... and it's been true every year. A console can have more than one year, you know.
well, since ps3 already slaughtered and murder-raped 360 since ps3 slim launched then why would the slaughtering and murder-raping will stop?? also the raping started in end of 2007 till mid 2008 until MS made another price cut! i mean already MS made 3 price cuts since the launch of PS3 slim!!! no company will do that unless the earth under them have shaken!!!!
This site seems to post a lot of fan bait bullshit. If you love the PS3 then every year is the "year of the ps3."
Ziyad are you kidding me with that list. Half life 2:episode 3 yeah its also on pc not exclusive with no mention yet. Rare where ? Mass Effect 2 not 360 exclusive. Splinter cell not exclusive. Dlc for mw2 lol dont know if i should laugh or cry. Ps3 exclusives you convienetly missed. 3D dot game heroes Yakuza 3 WKC All those games except for last guardian are released in Q1,Q2 of 2010 with no mention of games to come in Q3,Q4 i doubt sony wont have any games for the fall.
Sorry for your bad english? You should apologize for your piss poor list. The Agency, Agency, DC online, WKC, Yakuza, 3D dot - Just to name a COUPLE. And since you are just pulling projects out of thin air(RARE - AAA - LOL)- Lets talk about Jaffe's game... Warhawk devs game... Insomniac's game. You lose. Let's wait until December next year like we have done this year. I bet you are the type of person to claim '09 was MS's year? Love to hear back on you about that kid.
sony definatly have Q1 of 2010 locked down, the rest of the year looks to be a challenge
I don't know what's going to happen in 2010 but just because PS3 outsold 360 for 2 straight months means nothing it's still a 7 million gap like always and that pricecut and redesign has just made sony lose even more money for you big fat information
lol! actually ps3 out sold 360 for 3 years in a row worldwide.check your figures! the gap is now 6.2million,
