You're in for quite a surprise. There is actually some (admittedly optimistic) truth to what he says, though most of the people 'round here won't agree.

cartoon mass effect and halo +BIOSHOCK(flopped already) (8 vs 3)

x360 will be dead by this year.

BTW BIOSCHOCK has flopped

It is available at all stores across NA. People are not buying it because it has no online

TOO BAD 1st day sales of BIOSHOCK couldnt even move 50k copies.

so Bioshock despite reviews is now a FLOP .

mass effect and halo 3 next

CNIVEK3952d ago're a [email protected] moron. That is all. :o

jaehyt3952d ago

Dude, do you even read the posts on this site?

Yeah, Lair and Warhawk are getting GREAT reviews...I am sure both of them will out sell Bioshock. There is no way what PS3 has coming out is going to come close to Halo 3, Bioshock and Mass Effect.

@ larry007
I would like to say your a sorry case of being totaly uninformed, but i think the right words are you are a sorry case of being uneducated!

Larry I would like to point out a few things toward your funny comment and they are as .... wait I thing everyone else has beaten me them dam! But I would like to say that you are a ... aw!! someone already post that too Dammit but also its funny how you.. .... someone already covered that too

And for reals Halo3, Super Smash, Grand turismo are big tittles (Maybe virtual fighter 5, Mario galazy). People don't realise how this games are huge sellouts. Most of the games people post( I just don't get why people post games they probably woun't even play) will be lucky to pass the million mark sale. But those 3 I mention sell millions upon millions. The next two great million seller games will be GT4 and MGS4

I know what Im getting for christmas!

In conclusion:
While there’s no doubting that late 2007 promises to be one of the most exciting times to be the owner of any of the main platform choices and even though Microsoft (with BioShock, Halo 3, Mass Effect and PGR4 would perhaps be a more obvious choice in terms of overt ‘oomph’), this writer, while ignoring cross-console releases, is singling out the Nintendo Wii as having the potential to shine the brightest as the dust settles on 2007 and 2008 looms ever closer.

The proximity between the releases of the so-called ‘holy trinity’ of Super Mario Galaxy, Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption is simply unprecedented in industry terms, while growing third-party exclusivity support from the likes of SEGA (NiGHTS: Into Dreams, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games), Capcom (Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles, Zak & Wiki), Konami (Dewy’s Adventure), and Ubisoft (Rayman Raving Rabbids 2) – to name but a few – should mark the bewildering climax to a twelve-month period for the Wii that not even the most insightful of industry experts could have predicted.

Bloodmask3952d ago (Edited 3952d ago )

has the best end of year lineup. Three AAA titles. Mass Effect, Halo 3, and Bioshock.

My favorite genre is RPG so I am also looking forward to Eternal Sonata, Blue Dragon, and Lost Odyssey.

Not to mention the best versions of all the new Sports Games at a rock solid 60FPS. Honorable mention to PGR4.

mistertwoturbo3952d ago

yeah let's turn this un-biased article into a xbox360 fanboy's bias. yeah. let's do that. like the other 4 million threads in this website. even if it has nothing to do with xbox360. let's all just cheer and clap our hands around the x360 saying it's "FTW" or it's gonna "pwn everything." let's do that.

Wow its astounding at your lack of knowledge on what makes a good game and knowledge of what people want! Its funny how I have a friend who works at a local gamestore in the UK and he was saying he couldn't believe how many preorders Bioshock has been getting. Ive played the demo and know the publisher from previous games such as System shock 2 and this is on fantastic game! Being it isnt online doesnt make the game a failure does it. Look at many of the wii games or the PS3 games for that matter! Im more than sure you haven't played this game have you? and im sure if it does ever come to the PS3 you will be soon changing your tune!

castdreams3952d ago (Edited 3952d ago )

Ace combat 6
Blue dragon
Dance dance revolution universe 2
Naruto: rise of a ninja
Project gotham racing 4
Scene it? Lights, camera, action
Splinter cell conviction
viva pinata: party animals
Lost oddesy
Eternal sonata

From thel ist of Xbox 360 exclusives.

And lets not forget that vurtua fighter 5 will only have online on the 360 version, and madden runs at twice the framerate on the 360.

People as biased as you make me sick. It would be like if I was to list the entire 360 lineup and say:


And did I really hear you call mass effect a cartoon game and mention Ratchet and Clank in the same comment?

Geewhizz3952d ago

I think it depends on what you are into. Each console has a strong lineup. I prefer the ps3 lineup for ut3, ratchet and clank, gt5 prologue, but, no one can honestly say that any competitors line up is crap.

note to larry - while i would love to agree with you, you are talking nonsense. I played the bioshock demo and to be honest I wasnt impressed, but I cant argue with the majority of gamers and reviewers who say it is AAA. Will prob give the demo another go at some point
