Jon Zungre writes "2009 is over, but before we buy our first game of 2010, lets look back and remember the top 9 things gamers learned in 2009. 2009 was a year of shifting: Shifting the tide of the console war, shifting where we usually play our games, shifting release dates and shifting sales numbers. But what shifts were the most important? Click to find out."

PS3 will dominate
Nice article. I totally agree with #1. PS3 has tons of momentum.

PS3 lineup does look strong
God of War III is primed to light things up
Sandwich Bender  +   1563d ago
That reminds me! I need to finish the God of War collection before GoW 3 hits.

Hey Sandwich. While you're at it why don't you play through the original Zelda game and some other classics.
Nostradavis  +   1562d ago
what does Zelda have to do with anything?
TheDarkAlbino  +   1563d ago
Agreed. I'm glad to see that the PS3 is getting some momentum.
FrankDaTank  +   1562d ago
How the heck can someone be a dark albino? Is that sort of like a prostitute nun?
Nostradavis  +   1562d ago
Cream colored would technically be dark for an albino

Really good list with really good points. I'm sad to acknowledge that the world's love affair with Nintendo is quickly dying, but it's hard to create a new generation of NES-era gamers with NES-era nostalgia when you bring "Wii Music" into the mix.

I hate to say it, but I stopped playing my Wii a while back. And it pains me so. :(
Nostradavis  +   1562d ago
The Wii isn't a bad system. My girlfriend enjoys playing New Super Mario Wii on it and the sports games are a fun change up. I'll be interested in seeing how long she remains interested in playing it though. She got it for Christmas so it's still new to her. She's remained interested in me though ... so it looks good for the Wii. =)

sad to see companies like Eidos and Midway crumble
Guess that is what a recession does though.
FrankDaTank  +   1562d ago
Why?
It's not like Lara Croft is relevant anymore and when is the last time Midway put out a top tier game? If they are gone they are gone for a reason.

I would've added
there's no such thing as an exclusive 3rd party any more.

Also eidos was purchased by squareenix, they're still kicking, and their new montreal studio is working on both theif 4 and deus ex 3.

Exactly
Exclusives or not Eidos and Midway aren't relevant anymore. They would need an act of brilliance to enter the gaming market with some new life.

I wish there were more naked girls, but that's just me!
Nostradavis  +   1562d ago

Xflopped-3+6=09years  +   1562d ago
I fully agree with no.1

PS3 made the past year very exciting.
Only overpriced DLC was released for the flopbox.
in 2010 360 will be in shltstreet ;)
