Last week's Games Convention provided a great opportunity to shout about new product – but only Sony delivered the 'fireworks', as Neil Long found out.
E3 07 was good for sony 2.
good to hear. wtg sony! Yea, TGS will also be interested. The next couple of months will be really interesting for Sony.
Hate to say I told you so, but i told you so LOL
you told us what??? how sony exxaggerates everything?? from the article, the guy specifically points out how sony AGAIN made a blunder and made themselves look like fools, calling out that the ps3 sold 13 million units, when in fact it was 1.3 million LOL ....no surprise here.....again.......sony reps ONCE AGAIN "accidentally" misinforming the public on the "success" of the ps3.....
Stole the show twice! yes twice times at E3 and Liepzig and at TGS when it comes. Come on you saw 4 yourself KZ2, MGS4 (wich is not! I repeat not coming onto your overheated 360) r&c future, Haze (ps3 exclusive) and so on. Ps3 will rule by this time next year, wake up you xbot (microsoft ripoff merchant) fool
LMAO, you are a typical sony sheep with your answer "just wait til next time this year" LMAO.....oh, and i don't think you are going to be able to count Haze as a ps3 exclusive either...only a timed exclusive, you will see that for sure...LMAO and like i said before, it's not considered stealing the show at E3 when sony focused on the dangling of the carrot to its sony fanbase, while microsoft has been delivering AAA titles to its fanbase NOW...LMAO
Geez man where have you been timbucktu? Let me spell it out for you H.A.Z.E PS3 EXCLUSIVE CONFIRMED! CHECK IT OUT.
i'll provide you with the exact official words concerning Haze: Haze The official line: "Play both sides of the same war and experience two unique game systems, exclusively for the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system this holiday season." i am going to laugh my a$$ off when it is announced after the holidays that Haze is coming to the 360 after being a TIMED exclusive for the ps3...
i take it you missed 'Summary: Ubisoft on Friday confirmed plans to keep the upcoming Haze a PS3 exclusive as opposed to releasing the first-person shooter for Xbox 360 and PC later next year. ' http://www.gametrailers.com...
but I disagree that Sony stole the show at E3. Depends on who you ask, but I think both Sony and MS did equally as well. If anything "stole the show" it was Call of Duty 4. btw - Sony was the only company that did a keynote, MS and Nintendo were both on the downlow. I expect a better showing from both at TGS. Microsoft has basically said nothing about 08 and you can bet they have some huge surprises in store.
@ razer Nintendo aren't attending TGS
i almost fully agree but i think call of duty plus mgs4 n killzone pushed e3 in sonys favor. good to see you recognise things but i can see that some of your xbox buddies disagree with ya. (you know as a xbox guy your not allowed to big up sony right)
I want to know what games are going to be shown for the 360 that is not multi-platform.
i'd like to know what first party games ms is going to be getting ready for after christmas. they still aren't saying anything.
Well IMO Mass Effect is the only 360 game after Halo3 which i'm interested in 2007. xmas 2007 for me is dominated by PS3 games
I wonder how many more secret announcements Sony has up its sleeve.
i hope they announce what the new rockstar exclusive will be and announce the next jak and daxter game. also, i hope haze is playable. i'd like to see what people(but not EGM) think about it.
So sony have come out on top at GDC (HOME and LBP won it back then), E3 and Leipzig now. And with nintendo a no show at TGS looks like sony will have a clean sweep for 2007 as MS have little impact in Japan.
MS are beng relly stupid by not showing any 2008 stuff. I'm not gonna say they would "Win" it if they did, but yeah. And yeah, 3 out of 3 for Sony.... What about you? 0_o I keep on finding that article about how fanboys think becoming more and more accurate.
i really don't think that sony was the "winner" at E3....they focused on 2008 lineups (what a surprise, sony telling everyone of titles that MIGHT not get delayed in 2008) while microsoft focused on the CURRENT year and titles they are bringing NOW for people to play. all you sony fanboys are acting as if when 2008 rolls around, that the 360 is not going to have any games released....i'll be enjoying the great games that are being released NOW, instead of HOPING that someday my console will get a game to justify buying the console....
@ DrRage77 Bitter much? Considering the fact that most the games shown are for this year - Uncharted, GT5 prologue, Time Crisis4, Warhawk, Lair, Heavenly Sword, Folklore, HAZE, Unreal Tournment 3, COD4 etc, i don't think your statement has much backing. Yes they showed the likes of MGS4, Killzone2, littlebigplanet, GT5, infamous Etc, however they need to show some of the games which will be out by the time the next E3 hits. And as for playing titles now. Well im currently enjoying great titles such as Warhawk, ninja gaiden Sigma and Motorstorm while waiting for my copy of Lair to come in the post. you?
Thats because they wont have much to show now that developers have nearly maxed out the machine (94%) LOL
jay3, then why are you here, mr hypocrite.
hmmmmm something is picking up steam and another one is losing alot of steam
going to leave some smart-alecked remark here, but I'll let the charts do the talking. http://www.vgchartz.com/?dg...
The thing is, the Box has been SLOWLY selling this year. They had a great first year since they were the only next gen system out, but seriously, have they sold 2 mil since last Christmas? There isn't anything to say about the Wii's success... PS3 - Been out for 10 months and has sold over 4 mil. Games are starting to roll in and sales have been increasing. I see the PS3 selling about as fast as the Xbox was at it's launch. I can see things swinging in Sony's direction. Also, they should take 2 away from the number of xBox's sold because I had 2 and they broke...so I returned them. Peace, Wingnut26
nice chart, the chart does the talking alright, as what wingnutz said.
is looking damm good for the PS3 as most of us knew all along and we are not on about the short term future either cos it goes way beyond sept 25th
Still many games that will inevitably be made for PS3 in 2008 and on. 2 of which are my favorite of all time and that is Shadow of the Colossus and God of War. The question has been posed time and time again," Why get a PS3"? For me, this is why I got a PS3. Also, I hope they announce RFOM2 at TGS. EDIT: Below me Yes! Great games coming for both systems. Lost Odyssey, and Katamari will own big time.
very true...after september 25th, xbox360 owners can still look forward to the following exclusive games THIS YEAR: Mass Effect Lost Odyssey Project Gotham Racing 4 Eternal Sonata Beautiful Katamari and those are just a few for THIS YEAR. xbox360 owners don't have to WAIT for any great games, we have them now, and are getting them now....and are going to continue to get them....
@ DrRage77 A few? that like the lot (seriously i can't think of any other exclusives). Mass effect is the only one there which appeals to me after halo for 2008. I will be enjoying the likes of GT5 prologue HAZE Unreal Tournment 3 Ratchet and Clank: TOD Time Crisis 4 Wipeout HD Uncharted: Drakes Fortune Folklore Everybody's golf 5 (huge fan of the series) THIS YEAR and as i said before, i haven't had to wait for great games they've been there since launch, plus not to mention the PS2 gems i've had the chance to play
Just because u made a new name doesnt mean it fits! Showing VGcharts is in no way witty! Why dont u add all Sony made gaming products into one (add all games bought) and see where the market share sill lays. I'm guessing you are The Mart and the fact you told ppl you where at this convention and yet u bash Sony is BEYOND us all. If ur not The Mart u better come with real wit or your going to look like a AZZ Ok now to the piont N4G is now NBG=News by Gamers This is in no way close to news. This is one dude that liked what he seen and wrote a few words about it. Thats it! if any 360lovers come in here and talk smack or show us VGcharts it means they are a angry little man with no respect of free speach! Maybe thats why they love MS! They want to bully ppl into what they believe or twist a fact into there own frame of mind! Hey 360 rules PS3 sucks! Look at this review! Look at the sales charts! I have faith in Sony and their hardware! Do you?
What the hell are you talking about?! Good lord! I didn't even try to make a "Witty Comment"! What game show?! Bash Sony?!
Nice trump with that Ninja Gaiden.
Why write that article, SONY didnt say anything. Nothing! Where are the facts of that article. This was ok with the PS2, now people see through that BS, SONY needs to show the consumers proof of quality in todays game. SONY cant do sh!+ but talk.
PUT ur keyboard away and relax for a couple of days lol from posting ion the site seriously qoute " while microsoft has been delivering AAA titles to its fanbase NOW" really..so u been playing all ur AAA titles for the 360...care to let us know ur true must have titles that ur playing rite now....bc last time i checked nothing has compared to gears since it launched bck in nov 2006 - and u 360 ppl have just been sitting for halo3 lol forza2 what a flop...hmm what else..ya i cant think of any other title that u bots would consider AAA material..and 360 owner ur standards are low so for u 2 list these titles as AAA lol 360 must be hurting..aside from mass effect - nothing else seem intresting.. Mass Effect Lost Odyssey Project Gotham Racing 4 Eternal Sonata Beautiful Katamari ^^^^joke line up now lets compare to what PS3 are getting this - and by the way THIS IS PS# first year - i dont even want 2 look back at the games 360 had in its first year... HAZE Unreal Tournment 3 Ratchet and Clank: TOD Foklore drakes lair heavenlysword wipeoutHD eye of judgement and currently playing warhawk, RFOM and motorstorm its funny how MS 2nd year line doesnt even compare to PS3 first year titles so if PS3 is killing MS in the first 1 & killing their 2nd year line-up - can u picture what 2008 holds for PS3 - killzone2 - MGS4 and final fantasy series + a bunch of other titles that we havent heard much from which sound and look amazing so please - shut up and stop hating...PS3 is 3 for 3 and TGS will be another show under its belt
"Sony steals the show" and the same will go for TGS.
i dont know why there are rumours about moving it to a more "accessible city", because it was only a 10-15 minute tram ride from the center of Leipzig and there are plenty of hotels and hostels within a 20 minute radius. I had no problem getting there and I had to stay in Dresden for 3 days which was an hour away from Leipzig!
Sony cured cancer!
Next year belongs to Sony. The lineup for Ps3 for the next year is 10 times better than 360 lineup for this year... imo MGS alone pawns everything that MS has for next year
Sony have dominated every show since GDC when Home and Little Big Planet were first unveiled.
Ps3 fans keep talking about 2008. Well guess what??? Their is still 4 months left and we get Mass Effect, Halo 3 and PGR4. 3 BIG GAMES and the ps3 has nothing to counter with. We don't need to think about 2008. The 360 is a reality....the ps3 is all talk.
For Halo there is Haze and UT, For PGR there is GT5 prologue For Mass there is Uncharted... so ahh STFU
if you are a bot, extremely ignorant or just not a gamer
Haze is a joke, UT is better on a PC not consoles, GT pro is just a demo, and Uncharted looks really good. But not better than Mass Effect, Halo 3, and PGR4.
Haze is a joke? even though you've never played it. Maybe you're right, when have Free Radical ever made a good shooter? UT3 better on PC? Even though Epic themselves say PC and PS3 are almost identical and we even get the mods. If XB got it first (if you ever get it) you would be drooling all over this game as anyone with eyes can see it looks 3 times as good as Gears with a ton more options. FPS otY, suck it up. GT5 Pro isn't a demo. Its a small portion of the full game that still offers as much as most, lesser racers. At least you give Uncharted credit, but you still have to show your bot colours by proclaiming a game you've never played isnt as good as 3 other games you've never played, (unless you were on the Halo beta).
Drrage, wth man, you step in and out of the boards just to try to prove your so called point. You listed Mass Effect Lost Odyssey Project Gotham Racing 4 Eternal Sonata Beautiful Katamari right? Ok so mass effect may get held back till next year, its already been said, PG4 also, and Sonata MAY or May not go to ps3, its still up in the air and is already getting bad reviews due to the story sucking ass and behind repetitive. AND WHO THE HELL! cares about Katamari, that game is a big ball of boring. It would only be good for the wii personally speaking. I have an Xbox and Mass Effect is probably the last game I'll get this year if it doesnt get held back. PS3 eh more or less has a better line up for its first real fall and winter season. HAZE Unreal Tournment 3 Ratchet and Clank: TOD Foklore drakes lair heavenlysword wipeoutHD eye of judgement and currently playing warhawk, RFOM and motorstorm I don't know if you played any of them, they are actually damn fun, and this is coming from a guy who has both. 360 only really had 1 good game its first year, Gears of War, which is sad for the 360 cause the box had better than that. For a first year sony may not be pullin games you want but as far as fans go and with future price cuts, they must be doing something right.
some would argue that Rainbow six vegas, Graw 1 and 2, Splinter cell, Crackdown, Condemned, Command and Conquer 3, PGR3, Viva Pinata, Prey, Quake 4, Oblivion (HOW THE HELL could you forget Oblivion?! That alone was worth the price of admission for a 360), were all great games.
And yes , before you even say it, I realize quite a few of those are NOW coming out for the PS3. But I bought a 360 based on their availability for the 360 AND NOT the PS3 at the time. Pointless argument really. It's more of the same "My system is better than your system" bullcrap. Just play the freaking games. Does it REALLY matter which system you have?
since when ps3 owners started listing a short list of exclusivesfor 2007, how about this, Folklore, Heavenly Sword, Eye of Judgement, Haze, UT3, Uncharted, Gt:5, RC tod, socom Confrortation, well wipeout hd,and there was something else i forgot.
Hey now Lost Oddyssey has potential, its got some ex Square Enix people working on thing,s and what I have seen so far looks good, aside from Bioshock, Halo 3 its one of the 360 games Im really hopefull for, that and huxley. but SONY's 08 lineup is juicy! KZ2 and MGS4 :D but I really want to see some progress at TGS with Final Fantasy XIII, those two titles the other being VersusXIII are the reasons I got my PS3 so hopefully we get to see somthing new. [email protected] I have to say Folklore is shapeing up VERY nicley, I was so immpressed by the demo, the gameplay vid's dont do it justice at all
lbp and home.
Question.. (Hoping some Sony fanboy will stop thinking with their @$$ and actually answer)... Aside from the Europe Only TV stuff.. what else did Sony announce in LEIPZIG that we didn't already know from E3 or the internet? Anyones? What else do you think Sony will announce at TGS? Games for 2009? They already announce what they will be working on for 2008. Now on the other hand.. expect Microsoft to announce something new at TGS since they didnt announce much about 2008. they didnt need to cloud this fall lineup with 2008 stuff. Kind of funny how Sony fanboys actually believe there are no games for 2008 on the xbox 360. Just because Microsoft does not need to focus on 2008 for now.. (Like Sony, whos driving PS3 sells base on promises of future games and features). No need to wait.. Bioshock is proof of that.. and with Halo 3 a little over 2 week away. Why should microsoft be making noice over games we will not see for 1-2 years.. How long Sony have talking about Kill Zone 2? When are you getting it? Yeah.. these hypes and promises are only good for hyping and feeling Fanboys with dreams... lots of things can happen in 2-3 years... Sadly Sony has to show games 2-3 years before their release in order to sell some consoles.
What did they announce that stole it?
...To get into the fanboy dubacle at this time in the morning, sick of correcting idiots in these articles. People like "firstknight" need to be shot. Many times. I don't know what (apart from playTV) Sony did to steal the show. I didn't even think Microsoft were at the show - I never heard anything. Leipzig to me has just been a repeat and re-drilling of what Sony showed at E3.... more Haze and Killzone 2 demos and the odd journalist editorial floating about about who's demo sucked. Who decideds the winner's of these stupid shows anyway? I don't give a crap who wins according to some stupid website, as long as I am happily topped up with Killzone 2 news - that's all I need.
woops...too many fanboys showed up already. No point in trying to post anything constructive now....
Yep... 5 hours later... no answer from Sony fanboys... do you know why? becuase there is no answer.. case close.
Possibly no one cared about your post? Perhaps? I read through 2 lines, saw it was just the usual xbot sony bashing nonsense and then stopped. I could just sit here and rattle off some 360 bashing comments (and there is plenty of them).. But i have better things to do.
couldn't care what he said. he's is officially an elite fanboy so putting a point across to him is a waste of time. use those bubbles on people who aren't blinded by sony/sony fanboy rage. arguing with him is like arguing with a racist. waste of time. anybody would think ms stole the show with their presence, ar well stupid fanboy article init, tsk tsk
Sadly.... 12 hours laters and what do we have? Fanboys who care to launch personal attacks against me.. and talk crap about... how they don't like wasting time responding to a simple question "How Sony stole the show?". Reason? Their brains does not compute.. and they don't want to look stupid(too late) trying to explain... instead.. they rather just insult people calling them names. @Alvadr - you did wasted your time... cause your comment was directed to me.. (at insulting me something I don't give a $h!t comming from someone I don't know or care to know).. instead of making a comments that was worth reanding and didnt make you look like an @$$.
