10 Most Overhyped PS3 Titles

For the current generation of consoles, the major companies involved have taken the hype machine to the next level. Sony has done it’s share of work; from showing CGI movies and implying it was real in game footage to showing titles that never made it to the shelf, they left no stone unturned in their quest for the console throne. Here is our list of the 10 most overhyped titles in the PS3 line up.

Not getting why multiplatform titles are being considered. Especially ME2 since most of the hype comes from it coming to the PS3.

kind of get Motorstorm because it suffered from KZ2 graphics hype from trailer to game and failed to deliver.

Seijoru2876d ago

I also don't understand Motorstorm being up there. I just remember all the flak Sony was getting back in late/early 2006/2007. MAG is another game that wasn't really overhyped and delivered a stable tactical MMO FPS experience.

Oh shi~ this wont end well....

Pixelated_Army2876d ago

Four out of the ten are

"There are only a handful of tracks in the game and they don’t look good either. Most of the photorealistic screenshots that we see are from the photomode of the game."

Horse shit!

When was Lair or MAG overhyped?
What's wrong with 220 amazing looking cars? And what about the ingame/realtime graphics? (replay/photo looks the same minus the shadow jaggies)
It looks/plays nothing like GT4.

And what's up with the multiplatform games in the list?

Information Minister2876d ago

Wow... GT5 is already at 7 years of development time?! At this rate, next month it will probably be at 12 years. Time seems to be somewhat distorted in fanboy land.

ExplosionSauce2876d ago


Yeah, official GT5 development started in 2007 after the GTHD concept/project was scrapped in 2006.
People need to improve their math skills.

Motorstorm - Not my kind of thing, but they definitely don't seem OVERhyped, if anything just hyped.

Heavenly Sword - A pretty good short game, wasn't overhyped by anyone. If anything, it was underhyped.

Resident Evil 5 - Multiplatform

Final Fantasy XIII - Multiplatform

MAG - Solid shooter, probably deserves more hype.

Grand Theft Auto 4 - Multiplatform

Haze - Never saw one good review, when they first announced it maybe it got some hype by being developed by the Timesplitters people.

Lair - Never saw one good review or article after it came out. Again, before it came out, maybe there was some overhyping. But that's just the marketing team.

Mass Effect 2 - Multiplatform

Gran Turismo 5 - Probably overhyped unless you're a die hard GT fan.

Anarki2876d ago

The only games that I think were overhyped was Lair and Haze. Lair had so much potential if it didn't start off only with six-axis support.

has a really big prob.. they fail to identify the real prob.. did any of sony fanboys hype haze?.. .. i still remember like yesterday gaming site were hyping it like there is no tomorrow.. and called it ps3's halo.... by the time it was called a halo killer i knew it gonna be crapped on.. but after playing demo... yeah it deserved to be crapped on.. LOL


ps: hhhmmmm gamemunition!!! you clearly dont know the difference between multiplat and exclusive..

Philoctetes2876d ago (Edited 2876d ago )

Lame article. He's right about RE5 and GTA4 being overhyped, but why that's laid at the PS3's feet is anybody's guess. His comments about ME2 make it pretty obvious that he's still butt-hurt over that game going multiplat.

The only way this could have been even more fanboyish is if he included MGS4 and Uncharted 2, but maybe the author thought that would just make it too obvious.

"Motorstorm because it suffered from KZ2 graphics hype from trailer to game and failed to deliver."
I see what you did there.
Let me fix that for you.

"Motorstorm because it suffered from KZ2 graphics hype from trailer to game and UNLIKE KZ2, Motorstorm failed to deliver."

Godmars2902876d ago (Edited 2876d ago )

Bubble up for correctly correcting me. KZ2's trailer did deliver on the full game's graphics.

littletad2876d ago

Not going to bother listing each reason, but Lair was over hyped through and through. It was touted as the reason to own an HD tv at the time, only possible on ps3 and so on. For proof, check the tag Lair on Kotaku. Even more insulting was that Sony sent "reviewers guide" for the game, when it was critically panned by gamer sites. For reference on that, check up IGN. The picture is hilarious.

But who am I kidding, this site is flame bait, through and through too. But to defend it so adamantly is funny enough. There are a ton of these things for 360 and Wii. Why not ps3?

MWong2876d ago (Edited 2876d ago )

Agreed w/multiplatform comment. Why are there multiplatform titles on the list when it says PS3 titles. I think honestly the only overhyped game on that entire list was Final Fantasy 13 and that was a multiplatform release. Only problem is based on the writers definition of overhyped only Lair and Motorstorm should be there.

The rest of the games except for GT5 you hardly heard anything about.

gorebago2876d ago

this list is dead to me

DigitalRaptor2876d ago

Not the best list.

GT5, FFXIII, GTA IV, and perhaps RE5 were overhyped.

blackburn52876d ago (Edited 2876d ago )

More idoiticly written flamebait to stoke the fanboy furnace. Why does anyone approve these things?

JonnyBigBoss2876d ago

"There are plenty of reasons due to which the game just had to make the list. First of all the original Mass Effect is a still a Xbox 360 exclusive so PS3 players will never get to know commander Shepard’s previous escapades."

What? I own both ME1 and ME2 on PC, and ME2 on PS3 as well. Who is this guy to say something like that...
