2008 will be another stellar year for the Xbox 360, with so many AAA titles coming out for the system compared to its competition and with the expectation of a price cut sometime in 2008 the Xbox 360 is in great shape for another year of sales growth.

Only Xbox 360 provides gamers with a stellar lineup in 2008 of such depth and breadth that gamers will be satisfied with numerous AAA titles from January to December. It is widely expected that the Xbox 360s impressive lineup will see little resistance from the PS3 in 2008 as many of its titles are expected to be pushed back in 2009 thanks to development problems on the console due to the poor design of its architecture.

I think Jeff Bell Corporate VP of Global Marketing says it best when he says that the Xbox 360 "would trade places with no one".

Looking at the fantastic lineup Xbox 360 gamers and enthusiasts have in 2008, Jeff is right yet again

And RROD

I think Reggue says it best when he says that the Wii "would trade places with no one".

2008 will be another stellar year for the Playstation 3, with so many AAA titles coming out for the system compared to its competition and with the expectation of a price cut sometime in 2008 the Playstation 3 is in great shape for another year of sales growth.

It is widely expected that the Playstation 3s impressive lineup will see little resistance from the Xbug 280 in 2008 as many of its titles are expected to be pushed back in 2009 thanks to development problems on the console due to the poor design of its architecture and last gen features.

there are alot of NEW sony ip's that havent been fully utilized.

i can easily imagine hs2, motorstorm2, resistance 2, killzone 2 as true playstation gems. in my opinion lair should be updated to ds3 with fixed control OPTIONS. Lair2 should be pretty cool if lair1 gets fixed and more people pick it up.

Its easy to see playstation in 08 has some major blockbuster titles waiting to be released. It seems to me sony always has poor launch years and then lands critical hits for its home consoles second year.PS1, PS2 fit the description, and for some reason i cant deny that it appears as if the ps3 is setup in this very same way.
Im not too fond of the minigames on psn but expansion packs for warhawk are always welcome when they are as worthwhile as OMEGA DAWN.

then of course we have other titles......mgs, gta4 + rockstar exclusive, ff, and gt5, which also lead the pack in quality.

i guess those "it has no games" comments are put to rest now, because if that is not a lineup of must-haves then i dont know what is.

with so many good wii games coming out...2008 will be the year the wii really creates a big sales gap from the competition

Noodlecup3616d ago

You've never had a girlfriend have you? :'(

*sniff sniff*

Besides I don't see how you came about that conclusion since pretty much all the top picks in that list were PS3 games, odd that you'd think otherwise. Maybe you didn't read the article, oh well.

It is widely expected that the PS3 impressive lineup will see little resistance from the 360 in 2008 as many of its titles are expected to be pushed back to 2009 thanks to development and hardware problems on the console due to the poor design of its architecture.

I think Phil Harrison says it best when he says that the PS3 "new and exicting things coming for YOUR PS3".

Looking at the fantastic lineup PS3 gamers and enthusiasts have in 2008, Phil is right yet again

Phil then adds "a 1.4 billion payout is really a step back for that other system"

then gamers add

"Huxley looks like Caslte Wolfenstien and Allen Wake is still 12months away"
