Meh, a new Halo and Alan Wake is expected. I wont hold my breath on LO2 though
Totally forgot about Alan Wake. Yeah that would be cool. A few titles I wish to see on PS3 and that is one of them.
agree, Alan Wake would have been cool on PS3 and so would have Lost Odyssey. But last I checked both titles flopped on Xbox, so not too sure if anyone could say it could affect sony's momentum.
I swaped consoles with a friend and played Alan Wake, it was cool but not obviously game went thourgh many changes during development
@zgoldenlionz It only flopped in sales. It didnt flop in fans. (Alan Wake) Plus Alan Wake has over 1 million sales now, which is decent enough to give it a sequel, or a new game which has been announced, whether it be an XBLA title or retail game.
ah...I have to do this...Alan Wake could run on the Vita. It is 960x540 already. LOL (run ducking).
@ Kran: if it flopped in sales, it pretty much flopped in fans.
Alan Wake was a great game. The mistake they made was releasing it on the same damn day as Red Dead Redemption.
i hope MS shows some PC love a man can dream
@zgoldenlionz ... when do u call a game a "flop"? Alan wake wasn't a flop, you have take into cognizance that the xbox 360 appeals mostly to fans of shooters, and for Alan Wake to have sold over 1 million copies, it really do deserves Thumbs Up!
. NOBODY needs to worry about the big American company. It will win the 2011 holiday season, pretty much the way it has planned every year for the xbox 360. If that wasn't enough, back in March Kinect sold a confirmed 10 million units. Even if Kinect sold 2 million it would of been a winner, selling 10 million not only got it into the Guinness book of world records for fastest selling electronic device but it instantly created a hungry fanbase for games, games the btw will be introduced at E3 and beyond. Not enough you say...well take a peak at all the sales of ALL the multi-plats this year and you will see the 360 ahead by millions and million. It was recently announced that Xbox 360 has now passed 55 million consoles sold...sounds horrible hugh. Just recently, besides M$ buying up 12+ companies and their respective patents in the last 12 months, they just bought Skype, a service that has 140 million users each month and well over 200 million signed up. Sure they paid a kings ransom but when the mobile industry conspired against the Redmond behemoth by NOT supported the Windows 7 phone platform, M$ was forced to dip into the paltry 15-16 BILLION net profit they had last year and out bid the competition and now it's who your daddy for Goggle and Apple and the dumb dumbs at Skype that challenged M$. Where does that leave us now...well the 13+ million selling franchise Gears Of War will get the party started in September. Forza 4 is coming and it's bringing a big stick. Alan Wake and the great post processing effects of the 360 will make an appearance. Witcher 2, one of the better rated RPG's out right now is coming this holiday. Something like 10-15 new Kinect games for the top family time of the year. Those are confirmed, but rumors persist about what M$ has planned for their top Exclusive in Halo since it is the anniversary for the game that put Xbox on the map in Halo CE. I also find it hard to believe M$ will let Nintendo launch a new next gen console first and not challenge it after all, M$ position was to come out first this gen and look how that turned out. There is also the Crytek exclusive game Kingdoms and everything else that was mentioned in the article above. most of all, M$ isn't saying anything and haven't all year...what suspense. Sony has announced pretty much everything they will have in the next 12-18 months...they always do and in turn, there's not much to look forward to. The PsP2 being the most exciting thing they have to show. The second wave of Move games should raise some eyebrows as well. Nintendo could steal the entire show with the wii2...can't wait to see Mario in 1080p and 60 fps. Apple gets honorable mention since they are challenging M$ by having their conference at the same time on the same day with a very sick Steve Jobs running the show...this could be HUGE.
Sony lost all it's momentum with the PSN fiasco.
We can speculate all we want. The smart money says Microsoft is going to be hammering Kinect hard this year. Too bad for the core gamers that made the Xbox what it is today. For you guys, Gears and Halo....now piss off. I hate the way Microsoft has been treating it's fanbase these past couple of years.
This is the 2nd article I've seen from this site that says how 360 will beat PS3 in E3, butthurt jealous fanboys much or journalists?
just shut up. but i am sure you will be all over every sony is going to win e3 blogs. disclaimer, i am in no way supporting these crap "whos going to win a convention" blogs. i am sick of seeing istanbull.
Thats wish full thinking from this guy especially here in Africa where the xbox is dead in the water.
Ah...M$ will win by default. It's their home turf. But in reality, Sony's Vita will match it out with Ninento's Wii2, aeh, Cafe. I think those are the things getting people excited this year.
I'm sort of irritated with this site too, the 360 is already slowing ps3 momentum and started to do so months ago. As for games the 360 always ends up with the same amount of games if not more year after years despite the lies Sony lovers make up.
@Istanbull : Can you pin point the second Article, cos it seems you are the only one who needs to tell a lie to make a point.
Dude... WTF!?!?!? LMAO!
IGN will be streaming the MS conference right ?
Funny title, as the Xbox 360 slowed ps3 momentum almost 11 months ago, anyone remember why? see if your answer kinects with mine:) Then sony completely stopped any momentum it had with this huge world wide psn outage. Sadly it's all uphill for sony at this point, but yes they'll get some momentum back with continued service from the psn.
Could you go ahead and call your local GameStop for me? Just...go ahead. Ask them how many used Kinects they have in stock, would ya?
@newn4gguy Only a Sony pony would try to make any low-sales jokes about the Kinect. Could you go ahead and call your local Barnes & Noble for me? Just...go ahead. Ask them to crack open a copy of the latest Guinness Book of World Records and flip to the page where fastest selling electronics is printed, would ya?
what artynerd say's is very true. I'm not trying to put sony down, they did that to themselves recently. I was mearly stating a fact. and the disagree's are silly as truth is truth. Anyway's watch and enjoy today's E3.
when sony can as well match the exclusives and surpass them by double digit numbers why can't we live in a world where both xbox360 and ps3 can gain success by giving it fanbase what it wants GAMES i fully expect MS to give a great e3 conference and some new exclusives which could be new IPs and i also expect sony to give a great e3 conference also EA's conference is a must watch to see insomniac's new IP....insomniac twitter account had this join us 30minutes before EA's conference for resistance 3 so who knows all i know is today is the day we find what what was a internet rumor and what the future holds for all the console makers....hardware and software wise
PS3 is going to do damage this year
Nope none of those games will slow down ps3
OMG OMG OMG JUST READ THE 3 GAMES THAT GONNA SLOW DOWN SONY OMG OMG I NEED SELL PS3 OMG CANT BE TRUE TIMED DLC KINNECT GAMES OMG WAIT WERES MY GOLD SUBSCRIPTION NNNOOOOOOO,!!!
why does one have to slow the either both ps3 and 360 can be great at the same time!
Because this is a competitive market, you dont make money by holdin hands
why should gamers care about multi-billion dollar companies making $$$?
both have made profit & done well so my point stands
Not really true. Lots of companies share things and make large profits. Just look at Google. They could keep so much stuff for themselves and their products but they don't.
Nintendo made money by growing the market, I don't think they stole too many customers away from the other 2.
I have a ps3 and uhhhhhhh I really wouldnt say that the Ps3 has any momentum right now. If you call rolling backwards down a hill momentum but, I think we are headed in the wrong direction. We need to focus on moving past the debacle of the past 2 months.
@ refocusedman....Please refocus man, come back tomorrow after Sonys conference and change your statement.
As far as I'm concerned PS3 has by far the best line up this year and is doing well in sales despite the PSN outage. I'd say it has momentum.
At lowcarb, What will the 360 fanboys do if MS did the same?
I'd compare showing fake Kinect demos to farting so they did it a lot last year.
Gag and pass out, where they reside .. Moral of the story, both sides will stay fans ..
@refo: you have a momunentum problem
are you jelly for all the ps3 exclusives
At least if we are talking about sales. lol
I think it's going to take a lot more then 3 games. Oh and hopefully Alan Wake is a retail game, I don't want a sequel in the form of an downloadable game, they may aswell of just give us more DLC.
Alan Wake sold less than Heavy Rain. So I don't think it will slow down the PS3 same for Lost Something 2.
But made more money since MS gave them a lot of money to keep it exclusive.
How did it make more money when MS PAID to keep it exclusive? and went through a few different gameplay changes. Heavy Rain was exclusive without payment(for all we know) so other than recouping development costs and the such, heavy rain made more money. And who knows how long Heavy Rain was in development while Alan Wake was for 5 years. Not being a 'fanboy' just telling you to stop being blind.
I have both Heavy Rain and Alan Wake. I finished Alan Wake and liked it enough to download the DLC and be looking forward to a sequel. Heavy Rain still sits half finished, the gameplay simply didn't interest me, timed button pressing just doesn't do it for me. So even if Heavy Rain sold more, I have to say I personally felt Alan Wake was the better game. That is just my opinion, still I feel that only people who have actually played both games have a right to judge which of the two is better, and simply going by sales makes you look like a ignorant fanboy. Not all great games get high sales and some crappy games sale better then they should.
Xbox will release a new system in the next year so its over for 360...
Xbox is meh for me.. if they announce their next gen console I'll be shocked but besides that they really have nothing
They dont need many exclusives this year. There are so many top quality multiplatforms people are struggling to afford them
Yup so people should go buy a PS3 then. If you're gonna play multiplatform games might as well get it on the superior system
The ps3 might be more powerful but multiplatforms almost always look better on the xbox.
lol, why would you buy the more costly system to play the same games? Seriously, this whole 'more powerful' debate is, well, a rather moot point.. It's not like comparing a high end PC to a Gameboy, it's the x360 and Ps3. The difference is so little, it's like the jacking strength in my left an right arm.
omi25p said, "The ps3 might be more powerful but multiplatforms almost always look better on the xbox." Dead Space 2 Marvel vs Capcom 3, Dragon Age 2, Homefront, Portal 2, Brink, LA Noire You might wanna rethink your opinions before posting them.....especially when they're wrong.
"The ps3 might be more powerful but multiplatforms almost always look better on the xbox." If you didn't read the crap on here telling you that would you even notice?
exactly gaden_malak. The multiplat pissing match is retarded. On the topic of of so many high end multiplats... all I can say is that I own both systems and if MS doesn't start making with the goods then the 360 will be on the way out of my home. If I can get all the same games and great exclusives on my PS3 then why even have a 360? I mean don't get me wrong, I'm not hoping that they don't bring anything. I really want MS to give me a reason to justify keeping it around... its just that they aren't at this point.
Only thing "slowing down" either of these companies is the global recession.
I don't think the list is enough to up stage Sony, good one though. Why do people assume that halo 4 will be on the current xbox that would be a waste of a game on Microsoft part?
Lost Odyssey 2 doesn't even exist, it's not even being made at all. The guy who made final fantasy recently made the Last Story for Wii, doubt he even had time to consider a sequel to Lost Odyssey. With a confirmation to a localization (at least in Europe) of Last Story, you can bet he is still working on it even though it was released.
Beside, there is nothing that Microsoft can announce at E3 to slow the PS3 down. No offense, but with the PS3 line-up this year, Microsoft already lost.
alan wake sequel would be nice although i think it will be in same vien as QD next game ie a spiritual successor but not an outright sequel, and halo remake is expected. i dont think they will upstage sony
This E3 is going to be all about kinect and xbox tv.
So, basically, no games? I hope not. =/
your right lol i just watched it it was all about voice command for tv and disney and sesame street shit........Gears 3 looked pretty dam nice though and same with ghost recon weapon customization....and big surpriseanother halo and that was about it no alanwake 2 no lost odessy2...i dont know who cam up with those rumors...i would have loved a lo2 though i really liked LO....they only showd kinect party games and shit
I don't think sequels will help M$ this year (or E3 if you want to narrow it down to 1 week) Their gonna have to announce something big and new. Sure Halo 4 will sell a lot but its not gonna get NEW customers to purchase a 360 since they already know what to expect from their games. This is why Sony is catching up in the 1st place, their bringing out new IP's that attract new customers, simple as that. I think Kinect will be the biggest selling factor over M$'s sequels, if they can capitalize on that then they may get a good amount of new customers.
Sony isn't catching up anymore, though. Did you see Microsoft and Sony's financial reports for Q1 2011? Microsoft shipped 2.7 million 360s and Sony shipped 2.1 million PS3s. http://www.destructoid.com/... http://www.videogamer.com/n... I guess these numbers are ignored here on N4G when they put a negative light on the PS3 or a positive light on the 360.
hmm well it may have slowed down but we all know the only reason for that is the PSN being out,common sense it would drop sales. However its after this E3 that might make them go back up to speed, which is what we're all saying, how can each console make the most out of the remaining years before next gen and I don't see M$ really pulling out major game changers. Perhaps they don't need them now, but a lot can happen in 2 years.
