GamerMetrics has compiled the most anticipated games for the second half of 2007 according to online page visits in the US. Topping the list of prospective best sellers is Halo 3, followed by Madden NFL 08 and Grand Theft Auto IV.
i don`t know why, i just think so. =)))
lets see if N4G will post this in the front page and not just the xbox360 section.
Where was Japan mentioned in the article?
Alright AKA, this story was posted on the front page. So can we now stop with the paranoid fanboy whining about n4g being a "sony propganda site"?
lol a xbot fanboy article. by the way gta4 and madden are also on ps3. and how needs halo, lol.
edit: bloodmask you sucked ms balls too long. since when is gta and madden only on xbox360 ? lol, some ppl here get hilirious.
So what a positive 360 is posted so ur gonna call it an "xbot fanboy article"?
Get a grip.
And if u read Bloodmasks post correctly he actually has a good point....
Don't know. I think it differs per region. In the US, people like those kind of games. But here in Europe we like some variety of western and eastern games. And of course in Asia they like asian (Japanese) games.
That what sells best in the USA. But it's not all we play I for one hardly ever play sport games. We like eastern games and others too. Heck the game I'm looking forward too most is a rpg (Mass Effect).
Halo 2, GTA, and Madden were the best sellers last gen.
I realize that you can get Madden and GTA4 on PS3. But only all 3 will be available on the 360. These are already proven franchises.
Casual gamers will buy a lot of systems based on these key big 3 franchises.
360 also has all bases covered this holiday season with many new RPG's coming out , as well as games that cover all the genres. All systems have great games coming out. Late '07 is just when all the 360 heavy hitters are coming like Too Human, Mass Effect and Bioshock. For PS3 most will be next year.(MGS4, KZ2, FF13 etc.)
Yea this fall does have alot of games in favor of 360 but one game will trump them all.
A new Mario Brothers Game.
And since the hype for the wii is running rampant, so will Mario.
More people know who the heck Mario is, than know what the halo franchise is all about. Let alone Microsoft "hardware" failure has made national news on local new channels across the world and on CNN and even "MSN"BC.
The defences are set, the weapons are loaded. The real war begins this holiday season.
I am a PS3 fan, indeed, but the one thing I walked away feeling from the E3 show is that Xbox 360 this Christmas will have the games.
There is no doubt that Xbox 360 is going to have a lot of games for gamers to choose from and one important thing that can make or break a system is games. Sony right now does not have games and it's been hurting the systems launch.
We will catch up, but in the mean time Xbox 360 is running away with this thing. You have to take your hat off to the Xbox 360 fans they have chosen a very good system and they have games, that's a killer combination. Not to mention right now most of the games look better on Xbox 360 which just hurts so bad as a PS3 fan to say.
And with our killer games coming out 2008, that a tough pill to swallow.
Sure the war is far from over, I still believe we can win in the second half, but if this was checkers xbox 360 fans would be saying "crown me!" right about now. Or This Holiday season they will be saying "Owned Like a NOOB!"... but it's ok, we will try not to take it personal.. LoL
After all it all in gaming fun.
Yeah, MS is going to have a fantastic 4th quarter of '07...they'll win Christmas. I'm a bit more concerned about '08 as a whole though. E3 left me wondering what's next for the 360 outside of a couple of big games (Fable 2, Fallout 3). Sony's going to have a great '08.
Bubble for you man.
I agree that the 360 will have a strong game lineup for the holiday. What I disagree with is that it will be any stronger than the PS3's. As most people noticed most of the great games coming to the 360 for the holiday are all multiplats. With the exception of Halo 3, Bioshock and Mass Effect, there are no other exclusives really worth getting excited about.
The PS3 on the other hand will have all the same multiplats plus Haze, UT3, Ratchet & Clank, Uncharted, Warhawk, Heavenly Sword, Folklore, etc. Granted the PS3's heavy hitters won't be out until 08 but there are still plenty of exciting titles. With the exception of Mass Effect, I'm more excited to get to play Haze, UT3, Warhawk, & Uncharted than anything coming out on the 360 this holiday.
I think thats the first time Ive ever agreed with a sony fanboy.Im not exactly a xbox fanboy but i do own a 360 and the amount of sh*t i hear from sony fanboys is unbareable.
One thing sony fanboys dont seem to understand is that alot of people owned the ps2.Alot of those people were also pissed when they heard the ps3 price and bought a 360 instead.So were not exactly xbox fanboys but angry sony fanboys.
Anyway Crazyglues your cool and heres a bubble from me too.
Lost Odyssey, Blue Dragon, Eternal Sonata, Beautiful Katamari, Project Gotham Racing 4, Guitar Hero 3, Splinter Cell Conviction, Virtua Fighter 5 on XBL, Scene It?, Viva Pinata, Naruto for kids, Dance Dance RU2, Rock Band, Ace Combat 6, COD 4, GTA4 bonus content, Too Human, Madden, Two Worlds, Stuntman Igition, and Assassins Creed. This also includes what you mention of Halo 3, Bioshock, and Mass Effect (27 solid games). Also Haze, and UT3 are timed because of this massive lineup of games. They'll be release next year a long with Fable 2, Project Offset, Alan Wake (5 games) etc... This is not including Xbox Live Arcade titles too.
Some of the titles mention are multiplatorm obviously but it still adds up.
gamers just tell it like it is. Not because I think the same thing, but clearly the 360 has a better line-up from what we have been reading and getting excited for, as well developers and gaming sites. Not to say the Ps3 games don't look promising either, but I do not own a PS3, so it's hard to get excited, as I know, I will not get one this year.
Yeah much props for you a sony fan, that just sees games in general, not what you like over this or that, on your console of choice and all these justification why he does like other titles, and why he doesn't think it is a good line-up.
I can come up with plenty of reasons why I might not certain games. If I started doing that, I would miss out on some killa games as well as some sleepers.
To CrazyGlues:yOU BOUGHT THE WRONG CONSOLE!!Some advice;sell your PS3!Or,If you decide to keep your PS3,here's some more advice for you;take a deep breathe in(hold),breathe out,(relax),ahhh.Don't worry the PS3 party's just getting started baby!!
No doubt about it that the 360 will destroy the competition this year. Halo 3 has already reached 4 million pre-orders and will continue to rise. Halo 3 is destined to be the #1 money maker of all entertainment this year beating out blockbuster movies Spiderman 3, Pirates, and Transformers. Bioshock and Mass Effect have been praised by critics and will compete for game of the year. GTA looks to be better on the 360 with the exclusive content. It's going to be a fantastic year for the 360.
Bubble 4 Crazyglues...nicely said.
The ps3 will eventually get some good titles but it wont be able to compete with the 360 this year. And I dont really care or respect the Wii.
Destroy the competition?The last gen (PS2) is outselling the xbox360 right now!4 mil preorders for halo 3?Sounds like a xbox live system overload to me not to mention the $50.00 fee just to play or, your defectbox360(see MS xbox defect article) will burn out by the time you do get online. LMAO!I've seen trailers for halo but never played.May I ask whats so special about it?GTA4 with extra content on the defectbox360?Dude wake up!They will be capable of doubling the size of the game on the PS3.The DVD9 can't even carry blueray's jock!!!!
360 only has halo every other title is on PS3 and I'm looking forward to games on the PS3 and I have both systems. It's funny how xbots talk like GT4 and Madden are 360 exclusives. I bet the ps3 library is going to out sell the 360.
quote from MarioFromTexas 'every other title is on PS3'
Are you new to this site?
What? Like Bioshock, Mass Effect, Blue Dragon, Ace Combat 6, Too Human and PGR4.
If we're gonna lump in Madden with the sales of Halo and GTA, then we'll erase Halo and put in a title/series that consistently sells more and is exclusively on Sony platforms. Gran Turismo.
The only place to play the "top 3" (by some stupid definition) selling games will be Sony's PS3. If you want to play Madden, GTA4 and the vastly lower selling (when compared to GT) Halo series, then you get a 360.
You know, desesperado means despaired....
Is GT coming out in 2007? No, you're lucky if it comes out in 2009. It seems you're not smart enough to grasp this.
gt prologe is set for oktober
Acutally, GT: Prologue does come out in '07. GT5 comes out in 08.
XBOX ROCKS, Best video game console EVER made! I love it so much! Halo 3 MONSTER of the game, best LOOKING game ever!!!
(CAN I GET SOME BUBBLES NOW?)
bubbles for beeing a fanboy ?
I'm so sorry your mommy could'nt afford a supreme PS3 console for you this time son,maybe next year.When your mommy gives you a bath tonite maybe you can ask her for some bubbles otay?
the 360s line-up is nice but so is the ps3s.
it depends on your taste of games - if you like Ghost Recon like Shooters and FPS then you probably have more fun with the 360.
if you like all kinds of games, even platformers and rpgs i suggest the ps3. to me the upcoming ps3 titles look very fresh and promising.
i would love to play Halo 3 but besides that, i really don`t know what i would do with the 360.
i need games like Ratchet, Wipeout, Gran Turismo, ICO, Shadow o.t.Colossus, God of War, Jak & Daxter, Tourist Trophy, Singstar, EyeToy, Socom, Twisted Metal and so on .... all these kinds of games are coming to the ps3. More different types of games - that`s why i think Sony will win in the end.
this holiday season?
I see Blue Dragon, Eternal Sonata, Mass Effect, and Lost Odyssey on 360.
What are these PS3 RPGs you speak of for PS3 in '07? FF13 at 13% completion?
Not to mention you make this list of games you say you need. Which of these games listed will you see in '07?
of the ps3 games you mentioned are coming out in 2007.
X360 has far more confirmed RPGs than PS3 at the moment.
Actually, the PS3 has more confirmed rpg's than the 360 at the moment. The problem is that only one of them are being released outside of Japan this year. The Japanese are getting 3 of them this year that we are not. So the PS3 has a total of 4 coming out this year and a total of 7 announced so far.
But as far as PS3'ers are concerned, better to wait on them to be translated for us and get to play them than to settle for 360 rpg's. Mass Effect will be awesome. I think Eternal Sonata will be good. But Blue Dragon looks like it will suck (the Japanese reviews were mediocre) & the verdict's still out on Lost Odyssey.
"But Blue Dragon looks like it will suck (the Japanese reviews were mediocre)"
Since when does a 37/40 rated game in Famitsu, mean mediocre...?
how can multiplat games outshine another system when its going to get the same games and more? This is BS
...I think we'll have a winner of this generation by the end of 2008. By then, all consoles will have their killer-apps and exclusive titles. PS3's "potential" should be unlocked by then. When FFXIII, MGS4, Tekken6, GT5 hit market, we'll see what happens. If PS3 sales remain relatively low after these games (which I doubt it will), then we could say that Micro$oft is a winner.
It's hard to predict Wii's future, though...
so there you go you ps3 fangirls.360 the winner come this fall.
Can anyone prove that Halo outsold Gran Turismo worldwide last gen?
Microsoft said at their E3 conference that the top 5 selling games last gen where 2 Halo games and 3 GTA games.
I'm sure they couldn't have lied about that sort of thing.
This has Gran turismo 3 at 11 million and halo 2 at 8 Million.
"Microsoft said at their E3 conference that the top 5 selling games last gen where 2 Halo games and 3 GTA games.
I'm sure they couldn't have lied about that sort of thing."
this is rich. well, presented with the facts, how do you feel?
xbox 360's line up
halo 3, bioshock, mass effect, prg4, blue dragon, too human, spinter cell, and if there is more please inform me
ps3 line up
uncharted, HS, R&C: tod, warhawk, socom, LBP, folklore, UT3(timed), haze(timed), and if there is more please inform me
nintendo line up,
mario galaxy, metroid, smash bros,
and thats it as far as nintendo (serioulsy they need to focus on the hardcore gamers cause that list is nothing compared to sonys or ms line up hands down and if i only had that system i would be pist)
so it all depends in what games you like but i do own a ps3 so i will pick about 5 games from that ps3 list, but i hope you can see a good list with these games, in honesty as long if you have a ps3 or 360 (or both) you should be happy this holiday season
That list is pretty dull
"When comparing the lineups of the big three console makers, the report predicts Microsoft's Xbox 360 to have the "best available games" in the latter half of 2007 namely
Halo 3, Grand Theft Auto IV, Mass Effect, BioShock, Too Human, and Two Worlds.
(that counts only for me) didnt like halo, bioschock ill get on pc, too human i dont care and two worlds is a crappy game (pc proved it). Mass effect is the only one ill get out of those.
what about ps3
Heavinly sword, Lair, Ratchen and Clank, Warhawk, Grand theft Auto IV
Gran Tourismo Prologe, Unreal Tournament 3, (superior version) Dirt,
Ill get all of those above. As for all the Multiplattform games im choosing the ps3 version mainly couse of the controller and noise level of the console.
with the Author saying "Xbox 360 to have the "best available games" in the latter half of 2007 namely" Its clear he speaks of his taste cosue he cant tell with game will be good and whatnot. there UNRELEASED. So you see its all a matter of taste and like i posted above my taste on the sony this fall/winter.
dont take this article for anotehr bash against each other.
Beware that some multiplatform games looks better on the Xbox360. Not irrationally bashing the PS3 here but I have seen a whole lot of comparisons where the Xbox360 came on top like The Darkness, Call of Duty 3, Fear, ect. I don't have both consoles so I personally can't judge but that seems to be the general concensus. Hopefully Dirt will look better since the developers said so.
i disagree with all list i see, they're just fuel to start a flame war, and then some else writes a list and then someone says that list has multiplat game, and then..... also you appear to be some what of a fanboy
heavenly sword is for girls only because it ephasizes female empowerment, play at your own risk if your a guy. :-p
Im no fanboy, in fact im far away of beeing a fanboy
i own nearly every system except for the wii witch will follow too.
I was saying and replying to this list couse it only fuels fanboys.
The lineup is Strong on both sides. It all comes down to the Users taste wich lineup is stronger comepared to the other. So far it was the 360s with me buying about 10 games for it, but the winter is ps3 time for me.
dunno how come you call me fanboy.
Im tempted to buy a PS3 for UT3 and Haze, but i may wait as i know loads of people with a 360, its more fun fragging people you know:)
Then again PS3 UT3 supports keyboard and mouse, hmm
Also im pretty sure they'll slash the price of the PS3 here in the UK for Christmas.
Thats what I thought now go hide behind LAIR and Grayzonenolighting 2. Go wait B3YOND while we play the here and now and not play the dreams in our heads.
The SEVERE lack of western rpgs on the ps3 is the thing that annoys me the most. At least with the x360 we have a mixture of both japanese and western rpgs to suit both tastes, but with the ps3 you're only stuck with
japanese ones which can get really boring and tiring real quick.
Japanese RPG's don't do much for me. I just downloaded the Blue Dragon demo and tried it and found it unplayable...I tried to like it, I really did. That style, visual and gameplay, just isn't for me. I guess it's because I cut my teeth on Fallout, not Final Fantasy.
There is no way the 360 library compares to the PS3 library. The games you here about are the PS3 games. Halo is the only game on the 360 and is a game that PS fans don't even like all 125 million of them. I don't care what this guy thinks I'm buying the games that I like and those games are coming to the PS3. I'm selling my 360 anyone interested
is that all you can come up with i think cyber syn what ever the fukc you spell it lemmings comment is the thing that pisses me off the most the other names i just shrug off because they don't own this system they don't know what great games were getting
all you guys can come up with is 3 rings of death B.S.
Lets run it down. Please don't bash. This is just the Surfers Perspective.

If there is more please feel free to add.
I just see by the way it stacks up. To say any one console hands down will run away with the Holidays. Is a little biased and somewhat fanboyish. I think Both consoles have a very very good chance and taking it. This is a Win/Win for Gamers of course. But its going to be a nightmare for fanboys watching sales instead of enjoying great games.
PS3: GT5:Prologue (Proven)
PS3: Ratchet (Proven)
PS3: Socom (Proven)

360: Halo 3 (Proven)

Alan Wake - 2008.
with all the speculation and all the rumors and stuff.
I'm a 360 owner and if I wasnt I'd still say that.......Halo3 will finish the fight.
Fanboys, Gamers, Journalists, Media will have their eyes on Halo3 at LAUNCH.
why? play halo1....you dont need to play halo2....
Plus the System Sales will increase, and all 360 exclusives will be there.
I dont want to mention any other games besides Halo3....simply because.
The games library before this holiday is already crazy enough.
Dead Rising, RockStar Table Tennis, Lost Planet, CrackDown, Forza 2, PGR3, Viva, and the GAME OF THE YEAR.. Gears of War.
XBLA games OWN!! bomberman !!
All the other ones, crackdonw, Forza 2, PgR3, Table Tennis...suck
Now Halo 3 will be cool...but now they are saying it won't have 4 player online coop..even Haze is going to have this feature...even Warhawk has 4 player splitcreen online players. Why come Halo 3 can't do it..
I will still buy Halo 3....and maybe Mass Effect..but thats about it..
The PS3 has the better holiday lineup...show me a game on the Xbox 360 that is like heavenly Sword or Lair or Warhawk, or Rachet and Clank, or Drake, or Socom Confrontation or Haze or UT3?...And the PS3 is going to get GT5 prolog in october...this will be funner and better looking than PGR3 or PGR4. There is rumor to be a Killzone and MGS4 demo by end of year also...
I am just saying the PS3 is going to have a good lineup...it is not a down and out console...its on the comeback...We all know microsoft has to fix their console design first...if they can do this before Halo 3 comes out...that would be great.
You guys all know you will be playing Halo 3 for hours at a time...then your xbox 360 will get the red rings of death...do you have to send it back for repair...I want to get the new desiged boxes in exchange, if I get the red ring of death...not a refurb current console.
If the 360 wins THIS holiday war,so what?I'ts to be expected.It would be tragic if it doesn't.I mean come on now,the defectbox 360 has a year head start on the PS3.These defectbot boys are trying to compare the best the 360 has to offer against PS3's beginning games.And guess what,they're comparable right now!Give it a year or two MAX(maybe sooner) and you will truely see the superiority of the PS3!!By then the HDDVD will be defunct,the 360 will be burned out and the botboys will be left out in the cold.Brrrhhh!!!!
Lets not be fanboys fellas, admit both consoles have excellent titles coming out this year, so good that saying one has a stronger lineup than the other one is based purely on choice, not fact.
Save your money and buy a 360/PS3, whatever it is that you need. Your wallet will regret it, but it will be worth it.
Notable 2007 exclusive:
Splinter Cell Conviction
Project Gotham Racing 4
Ace Combat 6
Unreal Tournament 3(timed exclusive)
Ratchet & Clank Future
I covered the majority of the major ones. I don't count multi platform games for obvious reasons. The GTA 4 exclusive episodes are in 2008.
If I had 2 choose wich lineup the public wants more, I would go with XBOX 360 simply because of Halo 3. Halo 3 is the X-FACTOR. But if you take away Halo 3, You would have a really hard time convincing me that XBOX 360's lineup is stronger than PS3's.
So my verdict is XBOX 360 but PS3 is not that far behind at all. PS3 picking up Haze and Unreal 3 might be huge since Unreal 3 is being said to be on par with Gears of War quality.
that is all I can afford this xmas...
i agree with the article. MS has the best fall line-up its a fact get over it. 08 is a different story. we need to see more on the First party titles even though their 3rd party strength is so strong they dont need so many 1st party titles every month. unlike sony who are fighting an up-hill battle to get back into this generations fight
PS3 hasnt' even been out a year and it's even rivaling the 360's line up? :[ There's not gonna be a Halo 4.
Granted GoW2 will wreck house but these chains are only gonna last so long.
Then again eventually they're gonna run out of space to fit roman numerals on to the final fantasy boxes.
