The Xbox 360 having a nice line-up for a quarter known for it's emptiness.
Will be getting - Conviction (but not immediately) - Alan Wake (Collectors edition because of the 140 page novel) - Lost Planet.
Agree with your list... but add: Red Dead Redemption (looks like a great game) Split/Second or Blur (one of these) Alpha Protocol (i think it comes out in June) and maybe: Nier, Prince of Persia: Forgotten Sands (not sure about these two)
I will get the sabatour but it isn't out in Q2... I'm starting to buy more 7/10 and 8/10 because they are just less serious and a nice break. I recently purchased Red Faction: Guerilla and not on person can tell me that blowing up a bridge slowly while standing on top is not fun. And suggestions for fun games which don't take themself serious and probably not an open world? It looks likely that I'll buy a PS2 and SOTC. I was looking into a 3D0 and the ur-quan masters.
I know Red Dead will be a great game but for some reason, i have never enjoyed Western movies or games like i enjoy other genres. Will most likely rent it someday. As for Split Second/Blur, i am playing the Blur multiplayer beta and it is fun so its a game i will consider getting. Prince of Persia, i don't think will be good.
As it is, there are far too many good games out and coming. I have a huge backlog, and I already spending a lot of money going forward. Pre-ordered: Splinter Cell: Conviction CE Alan Wake CE Halo Reach Other games I'm interested in: - Lost Planet 2 - Battlefiled Bad Company 2 - Borderlands - Resident Evil 5 (want this for co-op on 360, but I currently own the CE on the PS3) On top of this I have access to many top notch PS3 games most within my household like God of War Collections, God of War 3, FF XIII, Uncharted 2 and Heavy Rain. All games I haven't played. There simply isn't enough time nor money!
top of this quarter to get would be: 1. Red dead redemption 2. Splinter cell or Prince of persia These games have really got my attention recently. (people may have seen me shouting that SC:C is my most anticipated game for my 360)
Red Dead is looking sweet. I'll wait to read some reviews, though.
1 exclusive. Anyway, nice line-up. Happy for it (jk).
LP2 better be the game we want it to be. If it doesnt last more than 20+ hours that'll be BS! After all it's a 4 player co-op game which means we'll breeze through most of it.
Splinter,Alan,and Red Dead are all buys for me
SC, AW and RD for sure. Also considering Blur (The beta is sick. It more like and action game than a racer, very aggressive game)and Ninety Nine Nights 3 (I enjoyed the stories in the first and the diversity of combat). Hopefully this one is ever better.
nice. I'm not sold on Alan Wake at this point. I"d replace that with either PoP or Lost planet 2 (maybe?)
Splinter Cell SSF4 Lost Planet 2 Alan Wake Limted Edition Red Dead Redemption
Same list for me, except SSF4
360 appears to be building up tons of momentum. Q2 will be great but I can't help but notice the onslaught of 360 games being announced. It's like they had a black out and now all of the sudden have risen from the dead. Right now I'm just looking forward to what gets announced next week and the week after. A price drop at E3 would be big for them so let's just all keep they hope they keep delivering.
the emptyness is based on the eclusives not multiplates. Besides thats a good list of games wether you include the exclusives or not.
Definitely getting Red Dead (need SOME online game to play after Modern Glitchfest 2) and Lost Planet 2 (splitscreen fun).
agreed. red dead's online looks spectacular
Without a doubt. It looks like a more focused GTA4, which is fine by me.
Splinter Cell: Conviction and Alan Wake are probably the buys for me. Red Dead Redemption I think I'm going to GameFly.
And 2011 with Kingdom Uncder Fire 2, Mass effect 3, Gears 3 etc looks equally stunning
Agreed. There are some blockbuster titles on the way for the 360
Cant wait for Kingdom Under Fire 2... i really hope it delivers.
Conviction, Alan Wake and Red Dead for sure. Will probably rent Lost Planet 2. Should keep me busy until Crackdown 2 hits.
without there mass price reductions i would never be able to keep up. Second hand games also rock ! ..... I fear digital !!!
All but 2 of those games are also for ps3 and only one's a 360 exclusive! The title suggests that these are exclusive 360 releases... lolz
Nowhere in the title or description is the word "exclusive" used.
Personally I do like the ps3 better BUT I do enjoy playing 360 every now and then, Call me a fanboy, but seriously I lose a bubble for speaking the truth?
95% multiplat what's new? and all multiplats are gimped versions i pity 360 only owners they are playing behind this generation for 5 years now.
and most of the gimped games listed over there are not shooter. we know that traditional shooter that has no halo name on it sell poorly also when you factor in game sales/installed based ratio. so definitely, sales will be better that ps3 becoz traditionally all types of genres sells great on the playstation platform. see how EA, konami, capcom, ubisoft and majority of third party publishers have higher profit on ps3 than 360.
Cant wait to get my hands on R* masterpiece. I know I'm riding the hype train, but may 18 can't come fast enough.
Day one buy no questions asked. Impulse buy. Been looking forward to this title for over a year! A little over a month away Hell yeah!
Awesome. I'm looking forward to: Splinter Cell Alan Wake Prince of Persia Split/sEcond Blur And Maybe Nier and Red Ded
SSF4 Lost Planet 2 Nier Agarest of War Those are the only games I'm interested in. Everything else I couldn't care less about it.
RDR looks awesome, for PS3.
Funny though, is that all the trailers that have been released are from the 360 version. I have no doubt the PS3 version will be just as good but the 360 version is confirmed to be looking good as referenced in the trailers. I am sure they will be identical though but who knows. Its going to be a huge game world, perfect for Blu-ray. We shall see soon.
