This week is a stale week for PlayStation 3 gamers, at least at the retail level. But take this as the calm before the storm, as Sony has some of their heaviest hitters releasing this September.
Shame twisted metal isn't there anymore :/ but oh well I guess that's better in the long run.
Well, that was in October anyway. But it was a good move. It's funny you say that, we talked about fans reaction last night on our podcast. Jaffe is a genius, he delivered bad news and a delay (which pisses gamers off), but the way he spun it (that it was better off in the long run) had gamers thinking the delay was a good thing. Smart guy. Sony should hire him to do PR.
You know Sev as I was reading that post from Jaffe, the thought going through my head was "cool, I'll have time to spend with the other games coming out that I want to play, go ahead and polish your game a bit more while I'm busy Dave."
Jaffe is America's answer to Japan's Miyamoto on the hardcore level. PlayStation gamers are so lucky to have him on board the PlayStation brand. ICO and Shadow of the Colossus Collection – Release Date: September 27th! Sold!
Really? PR? With his foul mouth and constant apologizing for offending people after saying incredibly rude things a lot of the time? Noone's looking for Jaffe to do Public Relations, trust me lol
Hands downs one of my most anticipated releases this year.. I remember the first time I played the game on PS2 and came face to face with the first 'encounter'...chills literally ran down my body..been a gamer forever and it is a rare event for me to feel the sense of awe I felt for any game. The game was a beauty to behold THEN..I can't wait to see what it will be like with the upgrade. Yeah..I'm as excited as anyone to play Gears and even look forward to Dead Island after the hype. But easily one of my personal most anticipated games for ANY system has been ICO/SOTC collection. Just Wait till this new gen of gamers get to witness this magical masterpiece.. It's a great time to be a gamer... Evil
Good lineup but no PS3 exclusive can compete with Gears of War 3.
is what im most looking forward to. Not to sure why the title says "full of AAA" releases as the other ones dont seem AAA type. HD remakes of ps2 and psp games are now qualified as AAA? Driver, warhammer, NHL.....those are AAA? Good games probably but I was under the impression that AAA not only meant the budget going into them but also the hype surrounding them as well. If anything, just for the sake of the original article, it should be more like: "Sony packs september full of ps3 releases" and let the consumers decide if they are worthy of the rating. There is nothing worse than a big rating being placed on a game that comes up short.
@aquanox: While you're certainly entitled to your opinion that was a trolling comment given the article it was posted in and plenty of people would disagree with you anyway.
@CameronL99 what it's usually known as PR are just poses and lies, gamers like honesty and talent, who cares if he curses?
It was a good move from them. More development time is always welcomed. Besides these upcoming months are packed with AAA titles so I think it will do till TM release
Yes i agree, even with the absence of Twisted Metal, there are tons of exclusives let alone Great multiplats that will be released. There will be no shortage of great games thats for sure
Sept is total garbage nothing at all interests me.
you bought a Wii? ..oohh right right, a 3DS.. sorry /trolling OT: the more the merrier :)
@liquid_ocelot lmao off, so just because he doesnt like whats coming on september he owns a wii or 3ds?? wth?? The only big exclusive coming on september is Resistance, and based on what happened with R2, i think its best to wait until the game comes out before we declare it a AAA. As for the rest of titles, 2 are remakes/collections and multiplat games, so September is not that big of a month, November...thats a whole different story
No Liquid I only own a PS3, but Assassin's Creed: Revelations is the only game for the rest of 2011 that I am interested in. Its getting to the point where almost nothing interests me anymore.
I was just F**king around! XD I lol'd when i read the first part of your comment --Onlink-- MostJadedGamer I see brother, im ight there with you.. Just looking forward to a couple multi-plats and the exclusives.
The Twisted Metal delay was a good move in some ways but it totally killed 2011 for me. Twisted Metal was the game I was most looking forward to this year. 2011 won't the best year in gaming history anymore, not without my Twisted Metal.
Well its SONY! Also, like others have said, its disappointing that Twisted Metal got pushed back :/ Hopefully they use their extra time wisely to make the game even better. Agree or Disagree if you Agree
The ICO and Shadow of the Colossus Collection and resistance for me, those are the games im pretty sure without reviews will be good. i'll wait for the dead island reviews as im not sure.
I was waiting for twisted too. I aint buying resistance3 on the count its garbage and the graphics were bad. Im buying that headset though.
would have struggle to find a big fan base so its a great delay actually. I also think ratchet will struggle those are the 2 games i have said in the past will not do great just because of how packed fall is of games and ps3 exclusives GOW hd collection....Is a must for anyone who wants the complete GOW experience and story. Ico/sotc.Ico on ebay alone sells for for lot more than this hd price so its a great idea to pick these because let's be honest most of us missed out on both of these master pieces Resistance3. I will get this because i had a great time with resistance 2 and the 8 play co-op in resistance 2 was amazing i hope its still there in resistance 3 Gears of war 3.Will be no doubt a great game so if you have both consoles like me its and if you are a gears fan and you have the money why not you can't go wrong dead island. This game could be great its like fallout with zombies in a way with all the RPG elements but this studio has a bad track record so we will see i am keeping my hype low for this and if it turns out to be great win win Driver.I will not spend 60 on driver when in 2-3 months or early 2012 it will be 20-30 bucks with so many games coming we all have to be smart on which to rent,which to wait for price drop and which to get on launch twisted metal the witcher 2 both of these games will do much better with their new launch window WK2. white knight 2 includes a copy of white knight 1 on the same disk being remade with white knight 2's engine and they have fixed issues with white knight 1 so its like getting 2 games for price of one i think its smart to release 2 games on a disk like for example bioshock 2 could have had bioshock 1 on the disk for people to get extra incentives to buy it just my opinion
haha... drink some more mountain dew or whatever but dont stay up all night.
yeah twisted metal was really the only exclusive outher then uncharted i was looking forward too,but yeah i want it to be polished as much as it can be! but it still sucks i have to wait longer.
R3, God of War Origins, and Ico/SotC shall consume September for me. EDIT: Disagree? Please tell me what will consume September for me. LOL.
I didn't dissagree, But my guess is they want you to watch Nyan cat none stop all september. @Sev It's a cat with a cherry pop-tart body and it's flying through space with a rainbow shooting from it's ass. I don't think it means anything. Someone took that animation and added that nyannyan music to it. Just for fun I guess
What's that Nyan cat all about? I've seen it so many times, I've even seen someone with a tattoo of it... but what the hell is it? And what's the meaning behind it? Sorry this is off-topic, but I have to know.
So there is no relation to Ceiling Cat or Basement Cat?
Can anyone confirm if GoW origins has trophy support or not? I've heard some people saying that It won't and some that it will. Help?
It should do, but I don't know tbh. HD remakes have them, so why not these types of games?
I think all ps3 games have mandatory trophy support since 2009.
It has full trophy support added - check out any of the later trailers.
and for all who are interested in GoW Origins just like me: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
2 disagrees for linking to an announcement trailer?? how much lower can it gets over here?
Since Ico/SotC is slated for the 27, it won't be consuming much of your September. But it will consume whatever time of mine until Dark Souls releases!
Dont bother using logic...its n4g
hmm gonna get resistance 3 for the story :) I hate the monsters and the scary parts, but I love the story and want the Chimairas OFF of this planet!!! I have to do it!!! I will see about god of war, I played them on the psp and loved them, at a later point I will buy it. AND OF COURSE the Team Ico collection! this is my most wanted for the holidays, beside Uncharted 3! first day!
I guess my idea of AAA is different. At anyrate I'll be getting the Ico collection and that's it.
Might get the god of war collection but that's it. October/November are when the real games come out
Well, I feel sorry for my wallet. (Sept, Oct, and Nov) Should be a good fall though. Can't wait.
Throw in the wireless headphones on top of that. Pre ordered a pair of those so I can game at full volume at night and not piss off the neighbors. My wallet is going to be empty for a few months lol.
Lol so true. Far to many games coming out.
"Sony Packs September Full of AAA PS3 Releases". Nop... not really. Out of the exclusives, only one interesting is Ico Collection. Probably get it when it's in the bargain bin. GOW collection, played them on the PSP. Resistance 3, didn't think anything special about the other two, and has PSN pass. Probably won't get this. There are more interesting games that are multiplatform or on other platforms (PC or X360).
Well said lelo.
To each their own, but R3 looks fantastic and the beta has been a blast. If you're buying it new, PS Pass shouldn't be an issue. If you're looking for Ico/SotC in the bargain bin, then it probably is an issue. Ico/SotC is a given...NEW that is. I've never played the PSP GoW games so that is an exciting release (HD and trophies...sold!) I think there are plenty of exclusive and multiplatform games on the PS3 to be happy for September.
This may be the strongest year for multiplatforms. I want many of them!
There are quite a few amazing looking ones on the horizon.
And yet there's complaining that there's trolling in the 360 articles. Keep it up bro. Being angry/bitter and not having a PS3 is pretty sad.
LMAO!! AAA exclusives, where? God of War is a remastered PSP game and Shadow of Colossus is another remastered game selling for $40 LOL. What a rip off. If these games were on Steam they would sell for $10 max. The only actual new game in that article is Resistance 3, which I will Gamefly. The rest are all multiplats. What a load of fanboy bullshit.
Stealthy dig's there
AAA Exclusives, I like that!!! Can't wait for Resistance 3.
2 collections and resistance 3... Thats full of triple AAA??
Pretty much. I don't see how it can be construed any other way. @ midnighter, below: Depends on how you want to look at it. I don't know about you but developers can improve their A-game, even if their previous games haven't quite reached the heights of people's Metacritic standards. All the critics and fans of the series seem to be raving about Resistance 3 based on the previews. And 3 out of 4 of the games in each of the collections has hit "AAA" status on Metacritic, if that's your basis of measurement. Delusions? Barely. The article says "releases", so they're hardly lying or making things up.
For people that havent played Ico and SoTC i would say yes. Imo those 2 games are better than 95% of games released this generation.
I completely agree with you. two of the best games of all time, in one blue ray. no one should miss that.
Guess I'll find out. Never played them but will give it a look soon to see what the hype is about.
You are forgetting White Knight Chronicles 2 (which comes with the first game as well, so it is like buying 2 games all in one package) and Disgaea 4. Both of those games are PS3 exclusives.
So where's the AAA games for September from Sony? Like Sage said... 2 collection remakes, and Resistance? A game that's not even in the 90's overall on Metacritic is AAA now? Delusions of Grandeur on board, check.
Dude...Resistance is AAA, regardless whether you want to admit it or not. If people are so willing to give Gears is a pass for 2 (with its boring story and gameplay, lame boss fights, awful online MP and pathetic ending),Resistance gets a pass for 2. The 360 only has Gears 3, Rise of Nightmares and The GunStringer (which had to be bundled with a mobile port). So, Gears 3 and 2 Kinect games? Break out the ticker tape parade.
dont see why you have to put down Gears like that... Gears is a great game I am playing resistance 1, and will hopefully finish 2 before 3 comes outk, so i am looking forward to 3 ico/shadow should be epic and I am looking forward to playing rise of nightmares
Delusions of Grandeur is thinking metacritic (or vgchartz) are god when they're just another site really. You could start an aggregate site tomorrow and be just as accurate or even more-so by including sites they don't like G4 and the Examiner. AAA in the industry does NOT mean 90+ on metacritic btw. It refers to budget and production. Ask anyone who works in the industry. Should a random troll critic like Scott C Jones honestly have the power over the world on a freelance site like the Onion to give Dead Space 2 a trash score and lower it from 90-89 determining if it's "AAA" or not? I don't think so. @ disagree...LOOK...IT...UP! wiki it even
Right. Now metacritic is like VGChartz. *rolls eyes* Meta is nothing like the made up numbers from VG Chartz. Meta takes the reviews we can all see with our OWN eyes, and takes the averages of reviews. Are all reviews right? Of course not. But nowhere is Meta anything close to VGChartz. I find a lot of PS3 fanboys this gen don't care about game scores or reviews. Of course, when LBP or Uncharted gets a great score, reviews matter again. But ya... not so much this gen. Wonder why that is. I'll wait for your link that says AAA does NOT mean 90+ on meta, and or "ask anyone in the industry". Funny how those big ass budget games that do have huge budgets... like COD's, and Halo's and Uncharteds and Forzas and Gears and Gods of War games... etc... end up at 90 or above 95% of the time. And come on now... 89...90... almost the same thing. 90 and an 85. No.. not the same. Infamous is an 85 type game... So is Crackdown. A 90 game would be like Batman game... and so on. Don't get all petty with minute 1 point differences. Differences that matter are like how Forza 3 whipped up on GT 5 as the superior racing sim so far this gen. Take it and sip the milk. :D i was mad at meta and thought at times it didn't matter as well back when my N64 was getting crapped on by the superior PS2 and what not. It happens. This gen.. 360>PS3.. last gen, PS2>Xbox... next gen... ?!?!??!? anyone's game.
Why would I waste my time logging on just to lie to you? http://www.troelsfolmann.co... Guy who scored the Tomb Raider games and Hollywood movie trailers for X3/Pirates3/Spider-man3. http://www.gamasutra.com/gd... GDC breakdown of what goes into making a AAA game. Note that the imaginary 90% meta' yardstick is nowhere to be seen. AAA games are like what major motion pictures are in Hollywood. Big budget, big studio/production, star power etc. Transformers: Dark of the Moon is a summer movie of that caliber. Already passed a billion dollars. RottenTomatoes' (the movie meta') avg of a paltry 36% changes nothing.
Hiding behind Metacritic like every other conformist here i see?
Metacritic does not make a triple a game. Last time I checked fable 2 doesnt have a 90 on metacritic and people consider that a AAA game. Better yet CoD Black ops didnt score above a 90 on metacritic...... so is that not a AAA game. So please next time you make a point at least make it a valid one.
And not a single shit was given, as with most Ps3 exclusives.
Well you 360 fanboys aren't supposed to care... Have fun with Kinect and... Kinect! lol I'll be playing some real games that I, and many others, give a sit about, on my Ps3.
AAA is nothing but an indicator that the production and marketing budget allocated by the publisher was fairly high. Collections are NOT AAA. They are (usually) budget rereleases with some minor tweaks. Halo CE: Anniversary may be an exception given that it has an entirely new graphics engine that runs on top of the original but collections and HD remastered last-gen collections are budget titles. They don't cost all that much to make or market. Resistance 3 is an AAA game because that's the kind of money that Sony spent on it. Insomniac is also doing their own AAA multiplatform game for (I think) EA. That means EA gave them a lot of money to make the game. If they had less it would be an A title (sort of like a mid-level title like Singularity or a movie license game) or a budget title like Katamari Damacy or Deer Hunter. AAA is just the scale of resources that will go into making, selling, and supporting the game. It has nothing to do with review scores or awards at all. There have been crappy AAA games that flopped and awesome budget titles that turned into big hits.
2 masterpiece collection i might add. Cause there's nothing like Ico/SotC on PC, Wii, n 360. Also, there still Disgaea 4 and WKC 2 (that's a PS3 exclusive too). Too bad PSLifestyle not give some highlight for this two game.
