Superb find and news. Assassins more anticipated than Mario Galaxy!? Super awesome news. Great games there but Mario Kart Wii really doesn't deserve to be there IMO.

WWE smackdown most anticipated PS3 game?! didn't expect that...

MK_Red4053d ago

Good one. Hard to believe. I was expecting Uncharted or Haze to be PS3's most anticipated or even GT5 or FFXIII.

Any wrestling game should never be found on a most anticipated list blech! Thumbs down for sure. Glad for the other titles though.

MK_Red4053d ago

Completely agreed. I'm not saying Smackdown is bad but it's just a yearly upgrade and not much different than SvR 2007.
Seriously, games like this (Wrestling), Madden and such should never make such list.

But as you said, the rest of list is pretty solid.

even though there's not a single video or screen shot of the the PS3 version, it has pretty good numbers there

and Smackdown on #2, that's a bit of a surprise for me

But I'm more disapointed that UNcharted isn't on there...blasphemy i say!!
