It's 2011, so let's look ahead to the year in gaming. Some of these predictions are serious. Others... not so much.
I predict Uncharted 3 will be the most popular game of 2011. Gears of War 3 will be close, but I honestly think it'll come second. CoD8 will be third, because I doubt many people will care of Call of Duty as they did the past 2 years. @NexGen Uhh get it right. I changed my username actually. You do get 1 free username change per account, so don't begin to accuse until you learn the facts. And I am not a fanboy of the 360. Why is it just because I own a 360, im classed as a fanboy?!!!
Kran /Clockback: you don't even own a ps3 and run a 360 only fansite. Stop pandering for bubbles.
So because I only have a 360 (and AGAIN, do I have to keep stating im getting a PS3 soon), Im not allowed to believe that Sony will be a success again this year? And, I dont RUN a 360 site, I work for one, and before you think its JUST a 360 site, Nave360 has 2 sub sites, for iPhone and PC. We're thinking on a PS3 one someday. Stop trolling and leave me to my own personal opinions.
There's a reason you have multiple accounts and both have no bubs. It's because you're a phony and people don't want to hear your opinion. Stop pretending - its clear you're a biased fanboy by looking at your history on both accounts. Isn't it against the rules to have multi accounts anyways?
Gears will sell millions (probably more than Uncharted because its the only good 360 game coming this year, the fanboys will use that as a way to claim its better) Uncharted will sell millions Killzone will sell millions (I hope people like it more, I love KZ2 but if they have to change the game to increase the fanbase I'm ok with it) The Last Guardian won't do well because its no really known amongst casuals (probably get delayed anyway) Infamous 2 will DOMINATE
I agree. Although I think the last guardian will surprise as its getting more publicity than shadow of the colossus and ICO got in the run up, thus its garnering more attention from casual gamers. I think the sales still wont be anything near the other games you mention but it will do quite well and could definately be GOTY material. I also think Resistance 3 is going to sell a massive amount. But depends on marketing. I think its coming out at a good time, around the time a new call of duty game which has a first time developer for the franchise at the helm, is coming out. I think MOVE is going to be struggling somehow as it just doesnt add anything new to the table. But everything else sony has to offer should make up for that in bucket loads. It'll be interesting to see what kinect does.
This year PS3 will definitely have a huge year, I think Kinect will continue to sell well also. I think both systems will have a price drop of $50.00. 3DS will donimate, and PSP2 will do pretty good number, but trail behind the 3DS. PS3 and 360 will continue to fight for 2nd place. Uncharted 3 and Gears of War will be the best games on both respective consoles. They'll both sell about6-7 million each. Uncharted 3 will probably win GOTY. We'll also see a new AC and COD. I think this years COD will not sell as well though.
i think gears will sell 2:1 compared to uncharted looking at past numbers
I don't think so. They're both sitting at around the same numbers right now. i think they'll be neck and neck. Uncharted has a huge buzz going right now.
I dont think Move is gonna die out. Even if it dosent sell as well as Kinect, that dosent mean itll die out.
Not a single one of them predicted The Last Guardian as GOTY. I find it hard to take them seriously now.
Well said, I thin it will be the most underrated game of the year
Psp2 announced!! Uncharted 3 for game of the year!! Kinect will be dead in 6 months and so will move shame coz I love it!! Personally think motion control in general is toss!! Not for the hardcore gamer even if u play a hardcore game!! Lets not kid ourselves!!
@ TroyAndAbed- Totally agree!!
GOTY - The Last Guardian, Portal 2, TESV: Skyrim, L.A. Noire (I'm leaving Uncharted 3 and Mass Effect 3 out because I honestly don't think they'll revolutionize like their predecessors. The 3DS will rape. The PSP2 will launch late in the year and rape as well. The iPhone 5 will be announced and blow everything out of the water...for one month...when HTC announces the exact same features on new phones. Lol. Kinect continues to sell. People continue to not play it. Move continues to sell less. People continue to play it. The best-selling games of the year will be Pokemon: Black & White, LBP2, Uncharted 3, Gears of War 3, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Mass Effect 3, and Portal 2. @pompeymassive - Thank ya! I think Kinect and Move will probably both die out quite a bit next year as well. Honestly, I expect Sony to announce a much improved Move for the PS4's launch. For now, however, they will continue to support Move users, regardless of sales numbers. That's how they work. I love Move!
ps3 will own 2011
Haha. Who would disagree with that?!?
I'm not sure, but people already have XD
at Sony's E3 they will announce Eight Days and The Getaway back in production and release in 2012 and an unknown new IP called Brooklyn Stories. PS3 surpass the Xbox 360. 360 respond with a price cut and still in last place.
"360 respond with a price cut and still in last place." What color is the sky in your world kid?
As far as exclusives of 2011 .. It's Gears vs Uncharted !! Otherwise, Elder Scrolls, Cod, Assasins Creed, Deux EX, RAGE and Ghost Recon will all be huge.
Far too many games are being released and they can't all succeed. Just look at how many "highly anticipated" and "critically acclaimed" titles did mediocre or worse sales over the past year. I think this year is going to be even worse.
You have a good point there
