Why Some Hot Games Slipped to '08 & Are They Worth the Wait?

EGM Staff writes:

"Best year ever? That's definitely what we were thinking back in January 2007, as the year's release calendar featured an unprecedented amount of big-name titles (Halo 3, Grand Theft Auto IV, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, just to name a few). But then month after month, it was almost like Ebenezer Scrooge and his bah-humbug ways took over the videogame biz, pushing several major releases out of the holiday season and into 2008. So as much as we'd hoped to play the likes of Metal Gear Solid 4 and Too Human last year, it just wasn't going to happen. So, we decided to examine a bunch of the games that got delayed, and if they'll help make 2008 the year we thought 2007 would be."

The story is too old to be commented.

Looks to be insane, I hope the multiplayer is as intense as the video's for single player on IGN, would be a dream FPS come true :P

MGS4 was originally planned for 07?

Disagrees for a question?...

MGS3 had poor sales but the new one is the 2nd comming of Christ?.

Disagrees for a question?...

I was agreeing with #3 asking a question, questioning the info and logic of the news post/list/comments in it.

POG makes direct money from M$ sales like you make money directly from Sonys sales remember?!

i mean why else would people really give a f*ck about sales numbers right?

chrno64664d ago

MGS has close to 4 million of sales, how can u say it has horrible sales??? Besides, mgs3 is not as hyped as 4, so I am sure mgs4 will surpass mgs3 in sales, even with a smaller install base.

heyheyhey4664d ago

POG- please go die

all you do all day is obsess over stats and sales- a game to yo is all about the sales, not the quality- a bit like M$ really

and stop bashing everything ps3, i admit to being a ps3 fanboy, but i regularly post neutral posts and occasionally slip in a good word about the 360- you are just an asshole who is ruining gaming

a games quality is judged by its acclaim and reviews of the gaming community, not by how many idiots who only buy fifa and need for speed games, refuse to buy it- mgs3 had poor sales because its marketing was abysmal and its an acquired taste, only relished by hardcore gamers- thats why MGS4 mixes the stealth up with some action set-pieces

and stop bashing one of my favorite series when its quite obvious you haven't even played it- your a moron

if mgs4 doesn't sell well (not likely) then it will be a shame as people will be missing out, but that wont stop me from enjoying my most anticipated game for 08

to many people it is the second coming of christ- because they love kojimas genius like me and stat-whores like you ruin things for everyone

get off this planet because you flop as a human being

Fall 2007 I believe. Or was it originally Spring? I dunno, but I'm sure it was supposed to come out in 2007.

Ah well, we can wait :D

Captain PWN solely believes that games like Konami's latest hit, Metal Gear Solid 4, as well as one of the greatest online games ever, Socom: Conferentation, as well as other hit AAA titles all exclusive to PS3 are worth the wait. Talented developers, unlike Electronic Arts and partners, will take thier time and create quality games and franchises which garner terrific success, both commerically and critically.

Games on the Microsoft XBOX 360 platform will never be worth the wait because they will never be good. Developers on the XBOX 360 platform are confident that they can shove any game down the pipeline and it'll sell a million, because most 360 users are no smarter than moles. Hence why they pay for an online service which isn't working.
