In a conference call following Activision's incredible fiscal results, Activision Publishing head Mike Griffiths provided internal estimates for hardware growth in North America of the major consoles.
It's gonna be a sign of things to come Suddenly PS3's breakout year doesn't look so breakout anymore, with so many delays. I mean right now it's looking like round 2 of Resistance VS Gears of War for the holidays. Nothing more. I thought PS3's was suppose to explode with console pushing exclusives this year. Even Home was sorta hinted to be delayed further if they need to.
So many delays ? Home is still due this year. The only thing delayed is KZ2 but after seeing the recent trailer, I'd say they take more time to make this game even more of a beast than it already is.
I'm on the PS3 side. But I'm getting impatient. But I agree Killzone 2 looks amazing, spend all the time they need to make sure it delivers because from the looks of it, it's something special. Personally, I thought it would be stupid to release Killzone 2 and Resistance 2 at the same time. But I'm disappointed Resistance 2 didn't look like anything other than a yearly update to the orginal. Even if all they showed was multi player. That, And still no word on some other games that I was expecting this year. It's already gonna be June, that's half the year gone by.
Activision still believes 360 will outsell PS3 this yr. Oh well...we will see at the end of the yr
Did you forget about MGS4 and HAZE? Anyways these two consoles are in totally different leagues.
in North America this year than Mercedes-Benz will sell C63 AMG's.
is no where to be found...
it might sell more, but i just can't see it selling double the amount of PS3's...a very bold claim indeed
B.S Look at the line up this year Sony has nukes while Microsoft and Nintendo only have bullets to hurt us. It's not damaging us only making Sony madder.
And stronger. Hulk smash!
Lucky for Sony, the PS3 is not in competition with the Wii. The Wii goes for a different audience than the FPS, RPG, and Action fans.
This directly affects MY gaming!
I mean come on now, the wii is half the price of the ps3.
ps3 already outselling 360 this year. how do they figure? guess? ps2 fans are waiting for socom to come out. and mgs4. do they not realize that? if i was an analysis i would take that into consideration. not just make wild guesses. just wait n see what happens,theirs no need to guess, do you get money if your right? if thats the case i would take a guess too.
PS3 and Xbox360 are commercial flops, but at least the 360 keeps getting phenomenal games, while the PS3 is full of garbage, both first and third party.
Uh ........ nevermind
Garbage??! Heavenly Sword, Drakes Uncharted, MLB08, GT5P, Hot Shots Golf...Do I need to continue? You've probably never played a PS3 right? Sigh...
lol at the don!
Don is living in the past while in the present. 360 HAD phenomenal games in '07. They don't have anything remotely as good this year as last year other than Gears2 and MAYBE Fable2. What a "phenomenal" lineup huh?
Well this sounds like good news for PS3 lol! And I agree 100% with Don above!
Come on now...what is the Wii killer christmas app? The PS3 will have little big planet, ps home, Resistance 2 (can any console do 60 player online with 8 way online co-op?), Socom Comfrontation, Tekken 6 (people forget this one), Motorstorm 2....Killzone 2 had to come out in Feb 2009....it was too crowded... 2009 is all Ps3....god of war 3, Twisted Metal Ps3, Final Fantasy 13, La Noire, Afrika, Infamous, The Agency... What awesome wii games are comming out? Third party wii games all suck. Can somebody name an awesome wii game comming out in the next 2 years? I know there is one....
Wait so 1st it was 2008 and since that has failed now it's 2009 lol! Sony fans just keep on dreaming seriously and for the record Tekken is played out! Also God of War 3 won't even be out until 2010 or 2011 and the 2008 line has terrible graphics so I would give this year to the Wii!
There's some, like boom blox, de blob and deadly creatures, but obviously that wouldn't interest you. Wiiware is going to be fun too. :P
MMM...so Activision said that a $249 Casual machine will sell more than a $400-500 Hardcore machine? Wow, every times, these developers get smarters. ^^ Good Job.
If that claim is true "Double the PS3" then that means Triple the 360!!! LOL LOL LOL
The PS3 was suppose to sell more than the Wii at $600. Now has it. Mmm. So the theory of the Wii only selling because it s cheap goes out the water. Now then 2008 was supposed to be the year of the PS3 and what have we seen. The Wii outselling it every week. So when does it start. 2009? 2010? And by the way Nintendo doesn't generally release details of games until just before they are released. So wait until E3 and then judge Nintendos 2008 line up.
