New SOCOM, Katamari and Viva Piñata in January EGM Rumors

In the upcoming issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly, the rumors section has news on a bunch of new SOCOM, Katamari Damacy and Viva Piñata titles coming out as well as Microsoft's plan for continued domination.

* Sticky Balls - New Katamari for Wii, PS3 and Xbox Live arcade.

* Turning War Around - Microsoft is crafting a brilliant plan to flip flop Gears and Halo every year, so expect Gears of War 2 in 2008 and a new Halo game in 2009.

* Count the COMs - three new SOCOM games are in the works. One on PSP and two on PS3.

* Mii Crossing - Mii's will be your avatar in the next Animal Crossing. All the shirts and accessories you collect will cross over to other games.

* Hudsun is releasing a TG16 pack with 3D remakes of Bonk, Adventure Island, and Super Star Soldier for the PS2.

* Rare is working on a Viva Pinata Kart racing game.

* NFL may drop EA once it's contract expires in a few years.

I always wonder why game companies continue to turn any type of successful franchise into a cart game but they must sell if the trend continues. Oh, before I forget, I hope the NFL drops EA like a bad habit if they don't step up their next gen efforts with Madden in the upcoming years.

Madden is great but if 2k was still out, Madden would of been sh!t loads better. But 2k would still beat it.

katamary was the only reason why i had a PS2 in my house. They were hella fun. It would be awsome to have part3 as a Live Arcade game. Very covinient. Hope it pans out.

Yes, the lag should be just as good on the PS3 as it was on the PS2.
A good game ruined by a horrable network service.

Would be awesome every year. They will be luck if they can get a Halo game every other year unless they have other companies working on it. Maybe Halo wars in 2009!
