So far, this generation has remained undefined. But that's about to change.
Good article. User-created content FTW Edit: @ Below...Free FTW
agree,as long as it's free and easily accessible.
Theres no need to define anything. we all know Sony PS3 has the best exclusive AAAs games for the future, both nintendo and xbox will never ever have a chance againts Sony in the gaming world. the real battle is between nintendo and xbox, though its looking like xbox unlike last gen. where is finished in 2nd, this time is going backwards and at the end of the gen. x360 will finished a distand 3rd.
Im so tired of fanboyism, and not just Sony fans, Im talking everyone. Its too soon to say anything for sure. Sony and Nintendo have the installed base, but Xbox has been putting too many AAA titles out to brush them off so easily the way you have. What the hell do you gain if Sony has more gains then Xbox? Have you played any Xbox games? They are putting out some damn fine titles, and its just stupid to talk the way that you do, because good games are good FOR GAMERS, it doesnt matter what console they are on. Take your ignorant comments to the open zone dude. For everyone else, I say heres hoping the next five years bring the best games, with more great stories, on ALL platforms out there.
putting all fanboyism aside i honestly think the ps3 will emerge on top. once sony fixes the issues at hand in game xmb and donloads from the psn dont take forever 360 will be finished. all because sony allows user created content. i do have to give to the 360 with the games thus far, but in terms in whats left to come after this year it looks like just a hand full of games are left for the console. and being a fan of rpgs the only reason i got a 360 was for blue dragon,lost odessey, and mass effect. most of the others will make there way to the ps3 so ill wait
and the highest probability is with the PS3!! you've got MGS4 GT:p HAZE littlebigplanet KZ2 SOCOM Motorstorm 2 white night story resistance 2 HOME and more
To me, LBP will be the first true "next-gen" game. It allows you, me, everyone to create they;re own little world and share it with anyone who cares to take the time. ^^This is new, fancy graphics are not. The PC offered that many moons before any console.
then its already decided .. wii won 08
2 species facing extinction: proud nintendo fanatics and polar bears. how sad.
I'd say the controls for Metroid Prime 3 were fairly revolutionary for a console. Sure, similar controls have been used on the PC for many years, but bringing them to a console was great. I think Metroid Prime has the best FP controls for a console ever.
Seriously people are going to be floored. You haven't seen anything yet. There are some videos on gametrailers that are fairly new, one talking to a designer (he wears glasses and kind of stout) of the game. Watch that. He talks about Home, franchises allowing user content, and that the indutsry can't wait. Me either! Read the comments on gametrailers too1
was this the video? looks great!! i cant wait for this lol
imo will be defined as the year Sony made themselfs a community. Games like Socom MGS GT5 RFOM2 Warhawk will be the tip of the spear. Sony will make online gaming fresh The 360 will sell more systems then they did in 07! It will be the first time they will have not dropped in sales year after year after launch. This will be driven by a price drop that no one will match till the holidays. They will have Gears to but some space between 07 numbers Wii fit will be the only thing really hyped and succed in LARGE numbers for nintendo! The DS will be neck and neck in total sales by the end of 08 with the PSP. The Wii will 2 real games for gamers all year! IF THAT PC gaming will hang in there but they cant count on hype to sell the games. They just need killer NON-FPS games 2008 is the year Sony puts there cape on the back on the throne! 2009 is when they take the Wii and sit them at the kiddie table and take this gen sales crown back from the 360
Once Home and in-game messaging hits (hopefully soon), it'll put an exclamation point on the community aspect they're trying to build. XBL already has a community aspect, and PSN is just starting to spread its wings.
MMO's of various types will become more prevalent on consoles. The mold of MMO fantasy sword and sorcery will also be broken on consoles This generation. Home will Usher in a more in depth sense of comunity never seen on consoles. Games will be alot bigger and longer due to DLC , and Blu ray. Games will have more customization due to HDD's being on many systems , except wii. Wii is gimped its like it took a half step into the next generation. Motion sensing is great but an HDD and more power should have been included. It suffices though for its target audience , conservatives and young kids. They will need a First Person Lightsaber game to redeem these short comings IMO. Motion sensing has been around in some form or another since I was a young buck Im not impressed by that alone. I think wii is in last generation pretty much with DC,PS2,GC, and Xbox.
There saying this gen is all about dlc/store related items.. Not really I think they shouldnt judge anything yet until end of 2009. Sony will show what this gen is about by the end of 2009. This year Sony is going to officially reinstate itself as a big dog then next year its going to completely wipe out every1 with pure amazement. I can feel the juicy titles like 8days gow3 ff13 omg I LUVE U PLAYSTATION rofl (puts sony fanboism back inside). But really I dont think that any1 will know what this gen really has to offer yet. HD gaming is really it but there is something more that hasnt been tapped into yet im sure of.
