E3 events always creates movers and shakers of the industry, there would always be reflection of what happened on announcements that shattered mind expectations.
if 8 days and the getaway 3 and eyeidentify and ffvs 13 and agent get announced to me i think sony will win the e3 big time
What MS momentum? Diamond TV service for more money?? Paying for TV you already have? It's called cable. So I don't see whats exciting about MS's conference.....maybe you guys are hyped for Kinect games? bahahbahahaaah
"Paying for TV you already have? It's called cable." Ummm..not everyone has cable.
I think you are the definition of nutgrabber.
well i think its the other way around so far PS3 still have more exclusives coming
You cant stop MS momentum. Its on a 11 month run at #1 seller. Sales are up 30% YoY Gears 3 and Forza 4 this fall If MS announces a pricecut its going to be GAMEOVER POW
Momentum? riding the Kinect wave with limited software motion or core doesnt look like momentum to me. two Exclusives and a price cut doesnt make it game over, MS did price cuts a few times before and its still game on. and even then they had far more exclusives and a healthier lead over the ps3 sales wise.
Momentum? Are we talking sales with this or are we talking games? Because as far as sales, Sony doesn't have a huge casual grabber if you will like Kinect is for MS so odds are MS will continue to sale more (only in the US of course). As far as games go MS doesn't have anything to steal that momentum. Not enough first party studios for that. If they announce Halo its expected. Gears is obviously gonna be there so thats not biggie. Forza? No. They don't have the IPs to steal the momentum as far as games go. Sony has hardware (NGP) and many games on their side. Its pretty obvious how this one is gonna go.
what about code name kingdoms?
"what about code name kingdoms?" Tell me everything you know about this game.
@gaden_malak Tell me everything you know about Agent.
that Agent is made by Rockstar who has a track record of putting out AAA quality games repeatedly versus Crytek whose claim to fame was Crysis (the benchmark for PC gaming but a mediocre game overall) and Crysis 2 (which was a disappointment in general). I think it's pretty clear what company you can depend on using common sense.
@KonaBro Congratulations. You've told me nothing about Agent except that it is developed by Rockstar and not Crytek. My point was that nobody knows what either game looks like or plays like, let alone how good they will be.
LOL @ the "tell me everything you know" attacks.
creatchee. The Agent is developed by RockStar North (The A team). Its a spy thriller set at the height of the cold war in the 70's developed exclusively to take full advantage of the PS3 with Sony's support. What do we know about Kingdoms?.
@NateCole I don't know anything about Kingdoms. Nobody except the developers does. However, as I stated before, aside from a general blurb about the setting and who is making it, NOBODY except the developers know anything about Agent either. EDIT: And the PS3 exclusivity doesn't do anything for me. Great games are great games, just as poor games are poor games. The console that they appear has no meaningful impact on their quality - that's the developer's job.
For me knowing Agent is a rockstar exclusive is one up over Kingdoms. As creatchee said developers make games great, and with R* North being one of the top multiplat devs in the business right now, an exclusive by them will be a sight to see on any console. Not to discredit Crytek, but R* has a far better track record. Thats why MS payed 50 mil for R*'s GTA DLC. Kingdoms' budget may not even be that much
@imherenow You need to take a look at world wide sales my friend. Although the 360 is doing astounding in the states, no question bout it, but when you look at the world as a whole the PS3 has still been outselling it.
Lol @ ImHerenow. Momentum? What momentum? We're talking about games, not sales. Gamers play games. Companies and analysts deal with sales.
lol there nothing sony can do to stop MS momentum
Check recent WW sales figures, PS3 is still coming out on top week after week. You guys are in denial. Stop hiding behind US sales.
What weekly sales figures? VGchartz? Official worldwide consoles sales are released quarterly by the console manufacturers, and in the most recent quarter (January-March) the 360 outsold the PS3 worldwide. http://www.thesixthaxis.com...
http://www.gamersmint.com/s... PS3 Sell-through: 2.45 360 Sell-through: 2.09 360 shipped more but PS3 sold to consumers more.
Enjoy Kinect. LOL. XD
Truer words could not have been spoken.
Really, will see last time i check a new hardware is coming and nothing on xbox will top my tv i get now nor. I dont even watch tv. I hate call of duty but npg has a call of duty exclusive coming and that is ment to be king of shooters today. If god of war 4 is coming that will be a big hit for ms, and getaway can take a crowd, and lets see agent wont fail as it made by the. Best team from rockstar and sony do seem to have some of the world best exclusve just some people are that blind. Yes i love halo as it can be fun but it getting boring now and i understand bungie are making new games and has pass halo to probs the worst team ever. Still be cool to have a look but they wont deliver. Hmm I seen a game that will look awesome and may take some left foer dead gamers called payday. Love the idea foer that game, I see gta 5 will be announced if that is a exclusive ms will see the end of e3 this year. Also that wont end sony have to prove them self with psn to some of the little babys in this world I see new services will be added and offers for ps plus members. Dont say cross game chat or party chat as far as I know its not really making a good team play game feature yes play halo reach 80% of people are in party chat and its not good at all.
You'd have to deny the laws of physics to stop something that isn't moving.
MS is bringing out tv services that you allready have i.e tv and in the uk you get cable for FREE. MS have what? No games. No games. They just have NO games unlike the ps3. MS going down the WII casual route and sony is staying hardcore. (More hardcore gamers are going to ps3 , but more csual gamers going to 360) Ps3 sales are higher than 360 sales, OVERALL. And not just the US. The world doesn't revolve around the us you know?
M$ has some new frieds call 'casuals'. The only way Sony will affect M$'s relationship with them is to get them to buy the Move instead. None of those games would do anything if Uncharted is not able to do it. Uncharted3 is Sony's biggest game at E3. May be a new GOW would help, but those 3 will be lucky to get 2 mil in sales each.
Been some rumours of MW3 to be move compatible. (Move sales would be up, up and away if this was announced xD)
Microsoft had a momentum going? I own all consoles right now as it is(got my Xbox360 for bargain price) and played a few good exclusives like halo reach, alan wake, and splinter cell conviction but they don't really have anything going for them.. Sony and Nintendo are really the ones competing here Microsoft is more like trying to get in line with Nintendo. Funny how times have changed.
Monday all questions will be answer and the hype begins to built even more for the fall games and those games that will be announce for 2012...
I have to hand it to MS, they have really proven themselves to be a competitor in the video game market. To be honest, I have only been using my 360 because my friend saved his Netflix login on there. I buy games strictly on PS3 (except for any upcoming 360 exclusives). Nobody thought MS would make a dent in the video game market but after only two generations, they have proven themselves a worthy opponent. I congratulate MS on a job well done, anything over 50 million consoles sold deserves an applause in my book.
I think the only major factor that attributed to Microsoft's success to the Xbox line is simply because the company is American. If it was made anywhere outside of America I don't think much would of noticed. I would still prefer Sega to be in the game though to be honest.
So you're saying the American people dislike Japanese products? 95% of all electronics are probably designed by Japanese companies. Americans in general aren't xenophobic. BTW 360 has outsold Sega Mega Drive/Genesis by over 10 million so far. Estimates for Sega's system are 37-40 million sold, roughly. MS's second generation system sold much better than Sega's second system. To be honest though, I did own both the Master System and Genesis back in the day. I liked the Master System because it was ahead of it's time. Remember those 3D glasses you could plug into the card slot? I rented a game which came with the glasses. It was a 3D game back in the late 80s. I also liked the fact that the gamepads had removable thumbsticks. The Sega game I remember most was Zillion. Also the Alex Kid in Miracle World.
oh no, ol' Jefferson is caught in a tumble...
Agent seems like it never existed.
i've got a feeling ms will announce or show something to do with a new console. there is no way they can let sony release new hardware even if it is portable and have nintendo show new hardware and then tons of exclusives between nintendo and sony with ms having nothing to show but their johnson in their hands. even if they show a dozen exclusive kinect games and another halo, it wont simply be enough to take the hype and glory of new hardware. exclusive games are like a sexy wife showing of a new sexy underwear. new hardware is like showing off your new sexier improved hot girlfriend. no matter how sexy the underwear, a newer sexier model is always going to win!
I dont really care about what Microsoft does to their console. Whats more important to me is what Sony does with theirs. And so far they are doing a great job. PSN was an accident because a bunch of hackers were pissed off at Sony that they attacked them. But everything else is stellar. I will always have great multi-plats and exclusives to play on the PS3. Plus the NGP will give me the ability to play PS3 like games on the go. So i am pretty happy with Sony at the moment.
What Momentum....Gears 3,eyetoy--- Uncharted 3, Infamous 2, Twisted Metal, Resistance 3, Agent, Final Fantasy Versus, Last Gaurdian..... Many many more
What momentum most of the good games on the xbox are multiplate.
used to be a time all this talk used to be backed up with games. Not a case anymore. We get sub based items thrown up on live and we are expected to take them as the next big thing. HAs went from sky Tv to Diamond subscription IPTV i no what i want and thats games not more this bullshit. Yet i know come E3 it will be the wonders of Kinect. Nah the momentum atm they talk is money sides nothing else it don't benitfit me the gamer. Its there pockets getting lined much the same as Activision for me atm.Just adding more price to what i already have to pay for.
Agent is the only game on that list that could slow the 360's momentum, due to the power of the Rockstar brand. I doubt it's coming anytime soon though, it's being made by Rockstar North who make the main GTA titles, and I'm pretty sure GTAV will be the priority.
Microsoft has little to no momentum amongst the hardcore gaming community.It's attention lies elsewhere...
I think it's fair to say that Microsoft has more of the attention in the US, but the PS3 worldwide still has more sales happening month by month. The real question should be what Microsoft can do to stop the world momentum of the PS3? Microsoft continues to only list gains in the US and is totally silent about the rest of the world.
