Dante's Inferno is Multiplat., so DUH of course it "might" outsell GOW3. I'm more interested in seeing how well Dante's Inferno sells on the PS3 in comparison to GOW3 (I think GOW3 will sell significantly more), but I'm getting both.

The God of War console games have averaged 2.5+(GOW2) and 3+ million (GOW1) copies each, so I'm expecting similar numbers for God of War 3.

@Rock Bottom,

ICO was on the 2001 list

Whitto, yes Tools of Destruction sold over a Million (Worldwide)... actually it cracked a Million in about 3 months after it came out: http://www.videogamesblogge...

Whatever Jaffe's next game is I'll more than likely be buying it (especially if it's Twisted Metal). If it's Twisted Metal, I hope the next one on PS3 retains the same atmosphere that TM:Black had.

God of War 3 definitely looks better... played the GOW3 demo and it's clearly better looking than the Dante's demo to me.

Several of these God of War 3 screens are pics that were released around Last Summer (E3 demo build), and all the pics have been scaled down (including the Dante's pics) because they are 1024 x 512... I have ALL of these GOW3 screens on my laptop in 1280 x 720, and the screens look better than what's shown.

I don't want to even see another GOW3 gr...

Great list of Software... I still own GT3, GTA3, ICO, Max Payne, and MGS2, all of them being favorites of mine.

The only thing I just HATED in Max Payne was walking along those thin blood trails in Max Payne's dreams... just glad it wasn't in Max Payne 2.

And even though it wasn't listed, I would include Jak and Daxter in my personal list for 2001 games... it was one of the first couple of PS2 games I bought and I really loved that franchise.

That's great for people that may have not played the previous GOW games, but I still don't think that anyone should even consider playing GOW3 until they play through GOW1 and 2 first.

By playing the previous titles I can almost guarantee that you'll have a MUCH greater appreciation for the story in GOW3, especially since each game takes place exactly where the previous one left off, and very few games these days have story lines integrated this way.

For a game that's as in depth as MAG, I think it's still rather early for a review that best represents the game... I mean, GameSpot posted their Killzone 2 review a good week or two after most other major sites did so that they could spend a good chunk of time with the Multiplayer.

The best representative reviews of MAG will probably be the ones that come out several days from now or later on after that b/c I doubt someone could get the most out of an MMO like MAG in just a day...

I will be passing on Bioshock 2 in Feb., however I will buy once it drops to $30 or $40 bucks at least.... Dante's Inferno is what I'm getting in Feb.

I bought the first Bioshock on PS3 in Early 2009, but I only put in about 2 hours or so into the game, and just never got back into it...

It's a shame the first Bioshock didn't do well on the PS3, but whenever a game is released an entire year on another console after it Originally released, those kind of sales results on t...

Unless there's some pretty good Pre-order incentives, I don't even get games from Gamestop, I get most of my electronics from Amazon nowadays.

Even with nice exclusive pre-order incentives, I think I'm almost finished with pre-ordering from Gamestop...I pre-ordered Assassin's Creed 2 from them, and there's this crap printed on the front cover of the box art:

I'm glad I was able to sell one of my College Text Books from last Semester, because I've used it towards my already pre-ordered God of War 3 Ultimate Edition on Amazon... I've got it down to just $61 bucks from $90.

Getting that Pandora's Box makes the Ultimate Edition worth owning alone for me. The only other thing I need to buy to complete everything is the Blade: ... I j...

When it comes to Sony and other big hardware electronic manufactures that are known for innovation, they can't just wait to "invest in the tech when it's flourishing" like Greenburg said... there's plenty of products and devices we have today that wouldn't even be here unless there was some risks taken, and you don't become a leader in Electronics like Sony has by just following everyone else.

I think there will be a place for 3D TV's in plenty of households just for Movie...

"December 2010 will fit in with the typical two-year development time scale that Guerrilla Games is expected to fit into now that their PS3 engine is complete"

I still don't think KZ3 is going to come out in 2010, especially if R3 comes out this year because Sony isn't going to release both during Late 2010. Unless there's a pretty significant jump from KZ3 in comparison to KZ2 in terms of gameplay and features, 2010 would be too early IMO.

"While God of War 3 will undoubtedly be a force to reckon with, based on the demo, is there much that it really does different or over-the-top that these new IPs don’t give people?"

Ummm.... yeah, God of War 3 will give people something that the competition doesn't provide, and it's Greek Mythology presented in one of the most Epic forms possible in gaming, and you can't get that anywhere else but God of War.

GOW3 will no doubt have greater visual fidelity ...

I'm still a little bummed out that this game isn't on the PS3... MGS3 was my favorite in the series and I would've loved to experience a MGS game as Big Boss on the PS3.

Sometimes I wish it was MGS: Rising getting the PSP treatment and Peace Walker getting the HD console treatment instead (regardless if it was Multiplatform or not) but I obviously would've preferred it to be only on PS3 if it was done.

I kinda expected the Motion Controller to get pushed back to Fall 2010 too... Sony was relatively quiet about it going into the New Year and since TGS 2009, there really hadn't been much talk about it.

I think the controller probably could have been released this Spring, but if it did, I imagine the pickings Software wise wouldn't be that bountiful because I haven't heard about as much 3rd party support for it yet.

And yes, "Pope_John_Paul_II", I agree wit...

I remember seeing a similiar pic as a "Place Holder" cover art for the U.S. version too... I'm just glad it wasn't used because it didn't quite continue the tradition of the other GOW box arts for me, such as like lots of detail and stuff in the background. I'm really loving the most recently revealed GOW3 U.S. box art though.

And it seems like there's even a few similarities between the E.U. God of War 3 and Heavy Rain box arts.... the E.U. Box arts look a bit more &qu...

I don't know what difficulty you are playing God of War 2 on, however on my first playthrough on Titan Mode it took me at least 6 hours or more of trying that sequence over and over until I beat it. On Normal Difficulty I don't remember that portion of the game being that tough for me at all.

"aaronisbla" gave some VERY good advice though, because I was about to say the exact same thing that he mentioned. I would also say that if you're still having trouble getting past...

One thing I noticed about Sony and their flagship Japanese devs. like Polyphony and Team ICO is that they always give them plenty of time to develop a title and I'm glad they get all that time.

As far as Turn 10 coming out with 3 Forza titles in about the time it's taken Polyphony to do GT5... I look at the bigger picture because by the time GT5 comes out, Content wise, it'll be equivalent of 2, if not ALL 3 Forza titles combined... no other Racing Sim is going for the Scale that...

It's still January and God of War 3 doesn't come out til' March, so I can see why Sony would wait a bit longer... I mean there's still about another 2 months to go.

I think it's a good idea for Sony to just release some new screens from the new GOW3 build and just let it Simmer in the pot for a few weeks on the Internet, then closer to release drop the new trailer as the Megaton.... the new screens are just the teaser to whet our appetite until the main course :)
