It's a do-or-die year for Sony, and judging from the lineup, it can be done. With many of its heavy-hitting exclusives finally finding their way to release, the PlayStation 3 is looking more and more attractive as a platform.
im looking forward to 2008. Sony's year.
FF13,DMC 4,MGS4,WKS,GT5---all of these games would be million sellers in each of Japan,EU and NA
I predict 20m in lifetime sales for FF13 and 10m for MGS 4
BUT some records would surely tumble
especially FF13 can sell over 2m copies on LAUNCH DAY in EU alone not to even mention JAPAN and NA
I'm also looking forward to 2008.
The 360 will continue to sell more hardware/software and PS3 will stay in 3rd place.
i just got mine yesterday but i freakin love it!!
bluray, games, the photo thingy, dvd upscaling, video conference!!! damn i could go on for days with things im finding out my ps3 does.
im so stoked for next year!!
Yes the PS3 is an impressive piece of hardware that seem to get better and better.
I'm not too sure it's as drastic as 'do or die'. Next year is definitely looking to be an exciting year in terms of games and I for one am worried at how I'm going to be able to afford all of them!!
No one gives a crap what a site like shacknews.com has to say about the console market.
They should go back to crying over the dying pc game market...
and so does everyone
except a FEW TARDS like you whose console has no games for 2008
So what is so different between 2008 and 2007??? Lair, Genji, Untold Legends, NBA 08, Folklore, Heavenly Sword, Eye of Judgement, etc... were all crap. So what makes you think the exclusives in 2008 will be any better???
Software sales is what makes the real money in the gaming biz and the ps3 isn't cutting it. Uncharted has completely failed. UT3 sold 70,000 it its first week. That's called a sales flop kiddies. So why is 2008 all of a sudden going to magically fix everything??? MGS and GT will definitely help but all the other games you always like to mention in your ps3 lists are probably going to be another failure.
and match/surpass x360 sales on a worldwide sales basis
can u name an x360 game that will sell a million copies in JAPAN /EU
However FF13,MGS4,GT5 ---all of them will sell 1/2m million copies in each of NA,EU and JAPAN
UNCHARTED sold 98k in EU last week.
expect UNCHARTED to easily cross the 500k mark in the next 2 weeks
HS and RATCHET all sold over 500k/600k and all these games would hit a million in their lifetime sales
Come on man, don`t go all green here ;) Uncharted is a great game, as is Ratchet and Heavenly Sword, even though the last one was a bit too short as most people will agree on. Let`s wait and see until after christmas before we conclude how they and UT3 sold.
MGS4 and GT5 will help ? Yeah i would think so. LBP is going to be massive. Killzone 2 could be great, as could Home, The Getaway, Infamous, Echochrome. Resistance 2 and Motorstorm 2, i would suspect would do "alright" in the sales department. Wipeout should be first class fun. And i havn`t even mentioned any third party stuff, let alone the games Sony hasn`t announced yet themselves, (will GoW3 make it in 2008 by the way ?) and third party exclusives (like Rockstar`s secret project)
Trust me, 2008 won`t be a bad year for the PS3. Stop saying games suck because of the platform they`re on, and judge the games for themselves. Or if that`s troubling, pretend they`re on "your" console. Seems to work for Mart ;)
Get you head out of your ar$e!
Proven franchises sell machines as well as software
I guess as its on PS3 they wont sell???
Pathetic, first it was too expensive, then it's no games, then it's not selling enough.. what's next? it's not an xbox? you're running out of excuses, and don't reply with an even more pathetic excuse or insult.
Uncharted has completly failed??? LOL
Typical fanbot, just because something doesnt sell as much as Halo 3 in the first week then its a complete failure.
Uncharted is doing great, and rightly so. Its a great game.
Versus isn't out until 2009-10...so was an ironic choice of picture.
im looking foward to 2008 it gamers year. Am i allowd to say gamers or do i have to but ps3 or xbox instead?
I Cant wait for
Brothers in arms HH
saint row 2
hopefully God of war 3 and gears 2
and many more from the related content list.
i can't wait for project offset. i want to see more on the wardevil game. they haven't shown much.
Project offset game hasnt showed much in while hopefully it come out next year or some info soon.
I don't think FFXIII can make it to 2008. As for the rest of the year, PS3 only needs 3 games and hopefully will be getting them in time:
Little Big Planet
boy does this list bring me down............i don't have the money or the time to buy all the good ones.
there are some huge differences between the games you named and the games comming in 2008:
-when the games release the ps3 install base will be much higher than at the time when the games you named released.
-the marketing of these games will not be on low-key like these games that you named.
-ps3 wasnt marketed on the wide-scale that 180 and wii were, sony is just now marketing like its supposed to.
-the games in 2008 are actual proven, original playstation ONLY franchises, the only original exclusive this year was ratchet and clank, and that wasnt marketed near HALO 3 level.
-HYPE, that is worth it
-there are so many of the playstation 2 fanbase awaiting metal gear 4 alone just to get a ps3, and note this game will not be availible on ps2, as well as any other platform, so no choice but to buy a ps3.
-there are millions of people from all platforms awaiting Killzone 2, this is a HUGE system seller
-there are millions of ps2 fanbase waiting for FF13 and versus, expect ps3 to traumatize the competition with these games
-the games of 2008 are cg level for ps3 that is, in realtime people that dont even play games will be wanting a ps3 just for a chance to play them.
-the games of 2008 for ps3 will have no criticism cause they will be beyond the e3 2005 presentation, no more "sony lied"
-WARDEVIL(movie game realtime)
youll see, the ps3 has already made drastic sales boosts, 2008 will make ps3 sales overflow
I'm going to be so broke in 2008. I really hope one of the Final Fantasy games makes it in 2008. I don't know about you guys but right now I'm digging FF Versus 13 over FF 13.
The games I am especially looking forward are:
Little Big Planet
Brothers In Arm
Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed
Pretty good list but the writer of the article forgot about white knight story.
me too! thats actually my third most wanted list on the ps3!!! However I don't know if it will sale very well in NA though, so maybe thats why he didn't put it on the list. Don't care though its going to be great!
Ps3 owners please stop with the lineup . As a ps3 owner I know whats coming and it sweet . It makes no sense to keep posting the lineup for 08 since every ps3 owners in here know we got the goods coming . I am going to write this for the million time . ( If the xbot was so great everybody would have purchase one 2 years ago .) The ps2 is still strong and as you guys have been posting the lineup is good . SO DONT WORRY BE HAPPY .... SMOKE SOME WEED
Ok so i just finished smoking. For real. Was going to anyway. What i can say is this. Sony needs to stop making PS2's and games for it. I think its hurting PS3 sales. It has to be when PS2 sales dominate the charts. I also believe that when MGS4 releases that hardware sales will see a dramatic boost. Same with the others. And please remember, PS1 and PS2 had the same exact start the PS3 did. Some of you guys are too young to remember. The PS3 will do well. I cant wait for 08.
sony can still support ps2 because if i was broke ( not saying i have alot of money )i still like them to make games for my old system . ( look xbot 1 fans ) no support . People are not patient these days . If 8 good games came out this year they wanted right now ( I like it when its spread out because my old ass cant played 3 to 4 hours no more .
Nobody mentioned Operation Flashpoint 2....
really looking forward to that game
Yeah Everybody Seems to Be Forgettin About White Knight...I'm Really Lookin Forward to It Myself At Least Till Final Fantasy XIII Comes Out ...Cant Help But Wait ...
If that isn't an All-Star lineup I don't know what is. That is the best lineup we have seen in a long time. Hit after hit, and variety throughout. Home coming, DS3 all coming.
As Sony would say......
What happend to "look forward to these games" like it used to be?
Now all I see is "Let your fanboyism run wild!" (reading between the lines)
And yes I am a gamer and yes I plan on buying another next gen console when I'm convinced to own more than one console thats not based around "weekly hardware sales" or "hyped" stories about games that take no skill to beat (not trying to dis anyone or start a flamewar just I see a lot of posts these days going on about nothing we already don't know).
