Xbox Live is a good enough reason to own an Xbox 360, but exclusive games definitely don't hurt - and Microsoft's got quite a few lined up for next year.
hopefully MS will announce more hardcore titles
this is nice list of core games, i haven´t realized it until now how many good games are coming just to xbox 360 - that is nice :)
this should be interesting. 'grabs front row seat' 'buffer voice booms over the crowd: LETS GET READY TO RUMBLE............' edit: @lastguardian that same sentiment could be applied to those who dont own a 360. I dont know how you define "core" but back in my days it was defined by those who played all systems and all games all the time. Good, bad, short, long. If it was a game it got played. These days people want to change that to represent themselves as playing only shooters or sports. That's not "core" that is limiting. No reason ANYONE who is dedicated to playing games in general should be without. Just because there are things that dont appeal to you as a "gamer" on another platform doesnt mean that platform is some how become invalidated. Gaming as a whole is something to be experienced. Those who limit themselves are not as big a gamer as ME!
"hopefully MS will announce more hardcore titles " With no more than a 6 month wait to play them. That would be ideal...
Whethter you own a 360 or not, every core gamer needs to have a PS3 next year. If you don't want a PS3 your not as big of a gamer as me.
2 games not confirmned for 2011 are on that list.
Now that I'm thinking about it. That Crytek game has me rather intrigued.
Just wanted to poke my nose in and say just cause you say you like two or three games on a system doesn't mean that you are now in favor of the system they're own. For instance, I like a couple songs by Jay-Z however he is not even on my list of would be "greatest rappers". A favor a song by the artist, I however don't really favor the artist, so I wouldnt recommend him to any one if they asked me what they should listen to. Liking somethin by proxy aint nowhere near the same as genuinely liking it.
no way Halo 4 is in 2011 i really want to see somthing from Codename: Kingdoms
Huh, I didn't know XCOM was exclusive, though I was never that much interested. Please, I need some info about Codename: Kingdoms. Please give me something. A lot of these games seem to be coming for Kinect, which is good for the core audience who has that peripheral, but I do not have enough money to buy the damned thing, so I can't even get half these games.
Out of the whole list, im most interested in Steel Battalion.
Codename: Kingdoms the Crytek game seems very interesting. It's coming from Crytek, so you know the graphics are going to be good.
That is an impressive list......of sequels. We know that sequels are generally a given when it comes big games. I can only see 2 (maybe 3 with TLG) as being new. Everything else is a sequel or followup. Nothing wrong with that but it just makes for false sense of exclusivity because of their previous nature. LBP2...KZ3...are OBVIOUS exclusives because their previous version was exclusive. They are ...exclusive by default. They dont offer anything new or different. Just capitalizing on what the previous one did. And by that statement I dont mean content. I am meaning something that had not been done before by that company on that system(s). It is of course that those games I used as examples will have new content as it relates to their prior release. I had to clarify that so not to get people confused. Sorcery, Heros..those are NEW EXCLUSIVES. The 360 isnt without the same criticism however on their list. 4 are considered NEW and the others are sequels/remakes. Codename D, Rise of Nightmares, Haunt and Kingdoms. I get what you are saying about being excited for new games in 2011. The obvious ones I tend not to get all worked up for. I will get many a disagree but seriously look at it from that perspective. I love NEW games, remakes and sequels....yeah that's a given.
Wow, that's quite the list. Kinect games I can't play because I haven't the space for Kinect, a phantom Halo game, a game from Crytek we literally know bupkis about, a PC also game, some flying dragons game - because those do so well, and Gears 3. Well at least I have Gears 3 to look forward to. I love the Gears series.
only 3 games on there I want gear, project draco and kinect star wars. There are 2 games I'm curious about Riseof Nightmares and Kingdoms. I wouldnt be surpised if we see Forza 4 in 2011 too
i'll give you an agree there. It just gets a bit tiresome with the list after list of the same ole same ole. If anything, Nintendo has the most EXCLUSIVES this gen. Practically everything on there is new and different sans the usual mario, link etc. I would like to see that kind of variety on the PS3 now with Move. Not every title is shovelware but every title is new and exclusive (somewhat). "FACT: If you don't own a PS3 by now, don't even call yourself a gamer." Here...let me fix that for you. "FACT: If you don't own both or all systems by now, don't even call yourself a gamer."
As a wise man once said (Kevin Butler). We may pledge fanboy alleigence to various consoles. But we worship one god... GAMING!!! (thats paraphrased bookworms, so don't go getting the exact quote.) Seriously, good for xbox fans to have a list of exlusives in 2011. It only helps the competition and quality of exclusives for all consoles. Lets man up, suck it in, and be sensible rather than act like kids and throw our toys out of the pram when we see articles like this. Your better than this people... YOUR BETTER THAN THIS!!!! lol.
gears3: The title everyone knows, even ps3 hardcore fans. Codename D: Boring: a selection of Kinect titles... Project Draco: leaves you scratching your head [or starts off a chain reaction of fluffy, nostalgic thoughts and memories] Steel Battalion Heavy Armour: It will be awesome or it will be a huge disappointment, you cannot tell yet. Remember its for kinect... Halo 4: Haha, not 2011 and its not Bungie... Rise of Nightmares: I dont think 2011.Survival Horror Kinect: Another title for adults. You will have to play it with lights on :P Xcom: With BioShock 2 developers 2K ... Haunt:survival horror game for Kinect. Codename: Kingdoms: This might be good, waiting for more information. Star Wars Kinect:We'll see whether it stands up to fan expectations (which are already pretty high) All in all: 5 kinect games.. wtf. This shows MS believes core/adult gamer will buy it. 2 games where you can believe that they will be good..really disappointing. Well, if you are a huge kinect fan it may be a pretty good year.
7/10 are Kinect titles 1 is unannounced 1 we have no info on 1 is coming out in Q4 2011 lol that is just horrible
Without reading the list: Gears Sequel, Halo spinoff, 8 Kinect titles. Do I win a prize?
So what if I like Kinect? So what if you can't afford Kinect? So what if you don't like the Xbox 360? The question really is, if you aren't excited why are you here b!tchin and moaning! Go play your PS3 and let us Xbox 360 owners that actually enjoy the console enjoy it!!! Some of you are so pitiful all you do is come in the Xbox 360 articles to troll instead of playing games on your preferred platform. I'm not sure what is more pathetic than spending time b!tchin about something you clearly don't like!
What the SAT(Sony Attack Force) entered here too?
Shouldn't that be SAF??!!
I agree this list is 50% kinect, but do consider MS are going to bet heavy on kinect now =| whats sad is the lack of non-kinect based games. its as if 360 hard core owners need to get kinect to enjoy half of these "exclusives" kinda unfair =( should make them non-kinect playable as well... still cool list. Halo 4?...has it even been announced? Gears 3 will be awesome =) been playing Gears 2 at a m8's, its great co-op, 3 will be siiiick
SPAM?! I said that Xcom isn't a 360 exclusive and that's SPAM?! Wow, these mods are ridiculous.
I will agree with you there. Xcom isnt an "exclusive" in the sense that it is ONLY on a single platform. But it is exclusive in the sense that it isnt on the DS or Wii or PS3. So technically it is exclusive to a degree. That is where some of the lines are a bit fuzzy when it comes to throwing around that "term". They could state exclusive to MS platforms. Also, it seems many dont understand my logic on my previous post. It's ok. I had a feeling it would be taken differently than handed out. I have nothing against sequels, just that they are an obvious exclusive. I like to see lists with new original games rathere than this game part 4 or that game part 5. Neither platform is not without its criticisms concerning games.
Wow I must say this is the lamest list I ever saw. Gears are awesome, Halo is rumored and everything else is unknown about? I mean seriously, PS3 line up eats the crap out of this.
now that they have Kinect, they'll have to concentrate a little more on the casual market. that means less quality exclusives for us hardcore kids =/
you would be a fool not to think that the PS3 line up is better.
The linup for the ps3 is the asame linup we have been looking at for years. They keep delaying games because at the beginning od 2010bi saw a similar list and most of those games were on it. I'm just saying you don't have to announce your games 3 and 4 years before they are released but I guess it helps your lists.
@ Jazz stop smoking crack since 2006, It's 2010 now so wake up!
@ Jazz Yeah about announcing games years in advance...Alan Wake, Splinter Cell Conviction, Gears 3 all say hi.
the pas3 lineup is the same lineup we've seen the past 2 years with a different number at the end...exciting
and the xbox line up had halo, gears and fable and guess what they all have numbers at the end!!!!!!
haven't heard of Xcom until now. that one sounds interesting. Kingdoms won't be out until 2012. i just don't see Crytek pumping out Crysis 2 and Kingdoms in the same year. i believe it's time for M$ to pick up more studios for exclusives so there's more than just GeoW/Halo. there's going to be an onslaught of PS3 exclusives next year.
why cant?Kingdoms is develop by Crytek Budapest and Crysis2 is develop by Crytek Frankfurt+Crytek UK
I could honestly see both of them coming out next year from Crytek. Remember Crysis 2 was done already and was supposed to release this fall. EA only pushed it back because it didnt want it to be lost in the sea of FPS for the fall. lol ironically now Crysis 2 might be lost in the sea of shooters in the Spring '11.
just because it's being developed under the same studio name but at different studios doesn't mean it could see release in 2011. i just realized M$ is publishing it so yeah i suppose it could release in 2011. there just hasn't been much said about it...
Sweet! I'm looking forward to haunt and gears 3...otherwise I'm gunna spend over 1k alone on ps3 exclusives next year.
Star Wars Kinect
A bunch of kinect titles, Halo 4...no thanks, Gears 3 which I'm pretty excited about and Xcom which looks to be something neat. Can't say much for Codename Kingdoms. Will have to wait to see what it's all about.
this is a very good list especially since most of them is for kinect=] microsoft is supporting their hardware very well
A lot of those look like flops to me. I agree, more hardcore titles - I only really see Gears 3 there... and the others... well there is no promise of a 2011 release for a majority of those games which are still in mid-dev stages.
LOL @the line-up Panzer dragoon & steel batallion look interesting but the rest... meh
This is the official list: Halo Bowling Halo RPG Halo Racing Halo Fighter Halo Checkers Halo Basketball Halo Football Halo Zombie edition Halo Chess Halo Baseball
Well, for me its all about Gears 3 perphaps Codename: Kingdoms since crytek are inolved ,but I am a bit sceptical about the others for now due to lack of information at this stage
XCOM looks great... http://www.youtube.com/watc... Gutted only 360 and PC gamers can enjoy. Might have to play it on my bro's laptop. Edit: It's a 2K Marin reboot of the X-COM franchise so hopefully it does a Bioshock and comes to the PS3. Those kinect could turn out good or possibly a pile of crap depending on how 'on-rails' they are.
I just watched that trailer for the first time, idk...it looks generic...I mean those enemies are just black puddles. It would be cool if that was only one of many forms the alien would take. Like that is their main form but could be a human, or a panther or a bat etc etc...Just looks a bit generic its early though and there is certainly some potential. Oh and that floating column was laaamme!! Gimme Gears 3!
i didn't realize XCOM was PC/360 only. it really hasn't caught my attention, but i may pick it up on PC sometime during the year.
Stay tuned for VGA's, GDC, and E3 for more Xbox 360 exclusives for 2011. It'll be an amazing year. What gamer doesn't have an Xbox 360?
The one playing all the awesome games on the PS3? I got both but the 360 selection is seriously week. Half those we know nothing about.
Don't troll. Just buy Kinect and Game on!
Every day I am happier to be a true gamer and enjoy all the games in both 360 and PS3. I'm really glad I have an open (and normal) mind and I'm not a stupid fanboy (no offense).
Sometimes it's not about being a fanboy. It's about not getting scrrewed over by the company you support. Most of my issues with not getting a 360 stem from M$. I won't pay to play half the game I've already bought. I won't pay for a machine that has had the worst failures of any home console, I won't pay for overpriced peripherals that should have been included from scratch, I don't wanna be a part of a community that mostly only really care for shooters and I won't pay for a service that I'm not really getting the full price of entry back into my gaming experience. I'm a gamer, not a sucker! If you think that makes me a fanboy then I feel sorry for you. Those reasons right there are all because of Microsoft, not the 360 itself. So I'd say those gamers who don't have a 360 right now are pretty damn smart for not submitting themselves to Microsoft. At least they aren't happy at being given the proverbial bending over.
Why would i want one if i have a PS3? But my brother have one foes that counts?
The one not wanting to pay to play online. The one too busy gaming. The one who doesn't like shooters. The one who isn't 15 yo. I'll stop there.
Soooooo.. you're 14 years old? Your 3 bubbles and 'excuses..' Makes me believe so. :)
The ones not wanting to pay online...I understand. So you think Xbox guys are not busy playing their games because they didn't have exclusives or multiplats to play this past quarter? You are delusional or what? Last I checked the best selling PS3 game is....are you ready for this? Tada....it's a shooter! And lastly why do PS3 fans always tout themselves as being more mature yet their demeanor in this site says otherwise? If you like the PS3, that's perfectly fine. Just don't be an elitist and don't act like a 15yo yourself.
Me and I'm really not wanting ona AT ALL!
PC + PS3 = gamer's heaven !
No, PS3 + Xbox 360 + Wii + DS + PC = gamer's heaven
No, PS3 + Xbox 360 + Wii + DS + PC = Broke and no social life. If you have that many consoles and the games in your library. I seriously bet you have too much time, money, or not many real sociable friends...
yes because if he has all those systems there's no way he could enjoy them and hangout with friends, I mean, it's not like you can balance them out.
Wow thanks for showing us those solid evidence that back-up your statement! ¬¬
Great year for both Xbox 360 and PS3! The owners of these platforms will have much games to choose next year!
Why so many disagrees? Did i say something wrong?
You said something positive about the Xbox 360 and Microsoft on a Pro-Sony N4G site. So yes, you did say something wrong.
hey slate91, if u dont like it leave! Im fed up of xbox fanboys bitching everyday that this site is pro-sony. well boohoo, 3 years ago it was pro-xbox.
