Game Informer Online gives you their picks for the Top 10 for 2008 for Sony PS3 and PSP. Games are in alphabetical order.
WTF is wrong with Game Informer? First they forget Fallout 3 for PC and now there are 2 6s.
Also, Fallout 3 should be in all lists since it's coming for all 3.
This list is a little sketchy, but you have to remember these are games that GI spent time with. I'm guessing FF13 and all the others games everyone wants to be on this list haven't been played or interviewed by game informer. Just my opinion.
Those are all BIG hitters.
Also, no GTA4 or Prototype?
And no word of Heavy Rain, Wardevil and few others?
Yeah they screwed up, all of them are worthy but Heavy Rain's absence irritates me. It should definately be put there in lieu of SCIV if you're going the whole "exclusive" route, but if multiplats are allowed then every game you mentioned should be up there. Plus Brutal effin Legend!!
Well, it is a top 10. You can only include so many games. :)
It is a little surprising that GTA wasn't in there though...
While I agree I have not seen any release dates for Heavy rain or Fallout or Wardevil... Maybe they are afraid they will be pushed back if they are dated and just wanna give sure things like KZ2 and stuff. These look bad ass and all but I'm not clear on dates for a few...
Also maybe they are saying "Main stream sellers" Like NFS is a seller even tough it sucks compared to other games....
Edit: True.... I have no clue... Probably just a poll of what people in the mag are most looking forward too. I think GTA4 may have lost some steam with the delay and a few other things. I can't wait however... Good list but odd.
Agreed on Brutal Legend. It should have been there.
And it's indeed really strange that GTA4 is not there but no stranger than lack of Fallout 3 in PC's top 10 list.
UPDATE: Jinxstar, Fallout 3 has a release date for fall 2008. Also, if they had gone for system sellers, GTA4 should have been their number one.
I'm interested in
The Agency, inFamous, Crisis Core, LittleBigPlanet, Soul Calibur IV, White Knight Chronicles, and Echochrome.
But they failed to Mention Patapon ;(
but oh well...I'm sure we'll see more lists like this in the near future...great list though...even a top 20 might not be enough...who's got game in 08? SONY...
I dont even think 20 would have covered all of the great games coming out next year. Socom will always be #1 on mine. Too bad the masses dont feel the same way.
Damn, HELLLO 2008 BABAY!
And then only 2 of there list was on my 10 toplist =)
and in order of least to most anticipated:
10. White Knight Story
9. Little Big Planet
8. Burnout Paradise
7. Whatever Team Ico is up to
6. Grand Turismo 5
4. Killzone 2
3. Devil May Cry 4
2: Grand Theft Auto 4
1: Metal Gear Solid 4
7. Whatever Team Ico is up to...AMEN brotha! This might become your number one game bro...wow...
no FFXIII , i disagree with your list see what i did there
Heavy Rain, War Devil, And new Team ICO game missing in the list. PS3 got the most exclusive game in 0'8..
Where can i find the divx plugin. ive tried to download things from stage6 and when i try to play them it says not supported. is it something i have to do after i install the 2.10 update??????? also, because im a newby, WTF does FTW mean?
FTW means "for the win" or "this is the best"...
So many games next year. I think I'll go broke. I'm gonna try to get a PSP for my birthday next year too for Crisis Core and God of War (and I wanna have a PSP for when Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep comes out)
A lot of PSP game coming out too. Sony is going to have a biggest year yet..
I'm already broke. Got everyone on pre order except haze and MGS4. Waiting on haze reviews and... I know its horrid but I'm not a MGS fan... Super stoked about 08
Yea, I'm starting to get really interested in a few PSP games that are already out like Jeanne D'arc, Daxter, Ratchet and Clank, FFTactics, and Disgaea. And the PSP price point is finally at a pretty good spot for me, so I'll be picking one up next year hopefully.
I don't even have my PS3 yet (getting it for Christmas in just a few more days) but I'm uber stoked for 08. I've never played a MGS game, but that's because I'm 15 and my parents just fairly recently started letting me play M games.
I'm REALLY excited for MGS4 though, because I've been watching all the stuff for it. I saw in an interview that they'll have "flashback" option things at spots in the game where you'll need to know info. from previous instalments, so I'm thinking I'll deffinitly get MGS4.
Ahhh. Well IMHO the best one was on the PSone. The others just had... Well a little too much in the way of cut scenes. I felt like i played 5 minutes and watched 20 min of vid. played 10 min and watched 25 min of vid.... Then in the end of the second one it got all wierd and started telling me to "turn off the PS2" not the system but the guy in the game was contacting me with the radio telling me and somehow they tried to make it play into the story line... After that I tried the 3rd. It was better and had some amazing boss fights but still the PSone is primo for me... However fighting "The End" in snake eater was one of the greatest boss battles of all time.... Still though too many cutscenes for my taste. I am a much bigger fan of playing as the story to me is not that great... If you ever get a chance and want a good classic game I would opt for the PSone game to get the best MGS Experience... It's not that I wont buy 4 I'm just not as excited as many here... Everything else looks bad ass though.
Edit: Just to add a few other things... I played all 3 games start to finish and the story was odd to say the least... I never liked the color schemes in the game. They all seem like tones of green... Also in the trailers for the new one I look at them and just think WTF? A monkey drinking soda selling weapons with some dude??? And a robot that has trouble staying on its feet... Its certainly innovative and fresh in a lot of ways but... I dunno... Thats why I am waiting... Fan boys will rant and rave but I will be listening to MK, JC and Meus for the most brutally honest gamers I see on tis site among a few others I forgot to mention...
Game on man
My top 10 goes a little something like this...
1 FF13 Versus
2 Killzone 2
3 Metal Gear solid 4/MGO
4 Resident Evil 5
6 Silent Hill V
7 Crisis Core
8 Street Fighter IV
10 God of War 3
Wish I could do more then 10 /sigh
I REALLY hope FFXIII makes it out in 2008. This is my most anticipated game out of everything :P
LBP is really catching my eye on that list.
where are they?
FF13 is more than likely to go to 2009. Nothing from Eight Days has been shown since E3 2006 and it may be cancelled. Coded Arms was cancelled or something pretty close and finally, MotorStorm 2 isn't even semi-official.
ff13 is still on any ff13 site as 2008
eight days is yet in development, the engine has been shown realtime twice
coded arms? find the article saying it was cancelled
motorstorm 2 was just announced
I believe FF13 is still on for 2008, however FF13 vs. is supposed to be out in 2009. I haven't heard anything about Eight Days. Coded Arms has been canceled I don't remember where I heard it, but I know it was canned. And Motorstorm 2 is guaranteed since Sony bought Evolution studios.
