Is 2008 Sony's Year?

"In terms of exclusivity Sony has quite the impressive lineup. The game leading the charge is, of course, Metal Gear Solid 4, which seems to have carried the PS3's on its shoulders since it was unveiled. Like Ninja Gaiden, The MGS brand is better known for its excellence and not for its system selling abilities. The fourth installment could change that all; many on-the-fence gamers, like myself, are willing to use MGS4 as an excuse to finally buy a PS3. It has a lot to live up to and so far its looks to be doing just that, but we can only truly find out once the second quarter of 2008 comes about. Killzone 2 has wowed many with its stellar graphics and could very well become Sony's answer to Halo, although not a 'Halo Killer'. The PS3 needs that talismanic shooter and Killzone could be right for the job. Gran Turismo, the most prestigious of racers, will hopefully grace the system with its fifth installment by the end of the year; a huge advantage. Final Fantasy XIII will certainly open the lock to Japan's heart and put Sony back on the map in the east. Honorable mentions include Tekken 6, SOCOM, and possibly a new Jak & Daxter."

The story is too old to be commented.

07 should have been a better year for ps3 then it was, with games like lair being heavily hyped that ended up being rubbish 07 was a let down for sony
08 could be better but it depends on the quality of the games, there is nothing to say little big planet will be good, we just have to wait and see
both sony and MS have some great exclusives, at this point its nobodys year, MS games in 08 im looking forward to are alan wake banjo kazooie gears of war 2 and some others, i dont know what i would be interested in on ps3 yet, tekken is too old skool for me now, prolly killzone and maybe a new resistance would be nice, but thet are both shooters witch im kinda over now

if Gears of War 2 comes out. That game alone will sell more than 3 to 5 of Sony's top games combined.

Lord_Mike3417d ago (Edited 3417d ago )

I rather play 5 games (MGS2, FFXIII, Killzone 2, Gran Turismo 5, Tekken 6) than 1 game next year (Gears of War 2). Who cares about sales it's the games we get to play.

Besides, my buddy next door has an XBOX 360 so I'll play Gears of War 2 once its released. I win either way =P

Gaara_7243410d ago

lol gears of war 2 sellin more than 3 to 5 of ps3's top games next year god u crank me up man if final fantasy 10 alown sold more than halo 3 and gears combined i doubt it will sell good compared to lets say the 5 best games like u said ok gears of war 2 vs resistance rise of man (suposidly thats the name) final fantasy 13, final fantasy vs 13, metal gear solid 4, kill zone 2 ?all themcombined will sell way over 20 million bot ff will sell about 5/7 in japan alon

2008 and beyond belongs to PS3

I was just playing Lair yesterday and the more I play it, the more intuitive it is for me to use the controls. A real gamer has no problem w/ it at all. I've only got two levels to go to finish this badboy and I must say one thing - Lair is a beautiful game; that cannot be denied.

On topic
--------

2008 is definitely Sony's year to win or lose and other than not rolling out any games at all and discontinuing the PS3, I just don't see how they are going to lose. This is the year that marks the return of All the great PlayStation games we know and love and it marks the return of...wait for it.......the PS2 Nation. I'll be watching along with the rest of you. Take care.

socomnick3418d ago

m8 you cant assume all of the ps2 nation will buy a ps3. I was a member of the ps2 nation I had 2 ps2s and am now a happy Xbox 360 owner. For me it wasent about loyalty because I can give a rat @Ss about sony or microsoft. I go where the games are at.

sak5003418d ago

disagree with Maddens and agree with Soco. Sold my ps2 just before buying a 360. Dint wanna wait and believe the sony hype of the ps3. Glad i bought the 360. Enjoying great games since 2006.

And on the topic, well yes just like 2006 (launched in fall instead of proclaimed spring) and 2007 were ps3's year /sarc

aba3418d ago

Cause if your still playing lair you need to take a long hard look at yourself. Lair=PURE SH*T. I wouldn't let that abomination anywhere near my ps3. Time to move on already.
