Every major Microsoft first-party game dated

CVG writes: "Microsoft's recent announcement that Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts will launch on November 14 means that every game in Microsoft's first-party 2008 line-up has finally been given a solid release date. No more guessing!

And that means that, unless any of the following games bow down to some unexpected slippage, 360 gamers can start their saving their pennies and figuring out how they're going to juggle multi-card payments to mum and dad until Christmas brings them some much needed cash. You're looking at buying a game a month. Credit crunch? My arse..."

Great news a game for every month even better than 07.

Cant say the same for Sony, not a single confirmed release date....a smell delays

Ace Killa 083710d ago

well give it a while august aint over yet and by then they should announce all the end of the year games. and if not maybe in september but after that i dont know. and well gears of war is my best choice this year. all the others is a maybe for me

chasuk083710d ago

To be honest all is you got to do is look at the quality of the first party exclusives, and Sony is the clear winner. And Sony also has more than 1 exclusive coming out each month.

rhood0223710d ago (Edited 3710d ago )

Too bad only one of those games is going to be a hit.

Vicophine3710d ago


Yea I know, I can't wait to play Splinter Cell =D


marinelife93710d ago

All three and a half of them are dated??

Aclay3710d ago (Edited 3710d ago )

@ Omega

Sony has already confirmed which PS3 exclusive games are coming for the rest of this year, just because they aren't dated doesn't mean it's going to be delayed. If Sony was going to push more games to 2009 they would have already done it by now.

I think that you should be more worried about Microsoft's 2009 line up because so far Sony's lineup is looking FAR better, and at least Sony has recently shown off some 2009 games for the public to see. Microsoft's 2009 lineup is still pretty much in the dark.

chaosatom3333710d ago (Edited 3710d ago )

Banjo and viva aren't high end games, so their release date is obvious.

Sony on the other hand has the month set, but not the date yet.

Drekken3710d ago

omega - put on a blindfold and go run in traffic - that would make your more intelligent than talking.

InMyOpinion3710d ago (Edited 3710d ago )

lol @ PS3 fanboys giga-trolling.

You guys are worse than The Flood in Halo 3.

Lord Shuhei Yoshida3710d ago


Now now.Wipe those tears

InMyOpinion3710d ago

I'm not the one crying about Sony in a 360 related thread.

lodossrage3710d ago (Edited 3710d ago )

But 360 Fanboy Omega4 is the one that started this stuff to begin with. He took shots at ps3 without ANYONE even mentioning Sony. For goodness sake, he's the first post and opens up the comments by starting flame wars.

Drekken3710d ago

Jenzo - I look at it as pure KARMA. Take it like a man.

InMyOpinion3710d ago

What are Sony's confirmed release dates then?

There's a difference between taking shots and stating facts.

lodossrage3710d ago

Stating a ps3 "fact" in a 360 article.

Yeah, he's not trying to start flamewars /sarcasm

TOSgamer3710d ago (Edited 3710d ago )

Alan Wake and Halo Wars? Only delay I remember Sony mentioning is Killzone 2. BTW Socom Confrontation is confirmed for Sept. 16. So his "facts" are not even that.

C_SoL3710d ago

MotorStorm:PR October 7th 2008

SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Confrontation October 14, 2008

LittleBigPlanet October 2008

SixZeroFour3710d ago

ill just go ahead to wiki and change that to 2009 jk ;)

InMyOpinion3710d ago

Nice official confirmation C-Sol. Wikipedia. Are you joking?

LossTheEarthbreaker3709d ago

360 has infinite undiscovery, star ocean 4, fable 2, banjo, viva piñata 2, and what else? Halo wars?

ps3 has Motorstorm 2, God of war 3, Killzone 2, LBP, Resistance 2, white Knight Story, whatevery Team ICO is working on, Uncharted 2, Dragon Quest, Tekken 6, and that's just off the top of my head.

It was only a matter of time, it seems. I'm starting to pick up my mutli-platform releases on PS3 instead of 360, just because online is free in most cases...

StephanieBBB3709d ago

and not rushing it at the end to wrap it up. And PS3 only games are bigger so that also comes in to play. Takes alot more time.

Every major Microsoft first-party game Out-dated !!!


Too Poooman Rules

plain rice3710d ago (Edited 3710d ago )

That's it? You can already cross out Viva Pinata, Banjo, and Too Human. The 360's lineup is now looking very underwhelming.

TheMART3710d ago

Nonsense. You cross out two games that aren't out yet?

Viva Piniata 1 was a good game, although not marketed well and so lower sales then expected. I think Viva Piniata 2 could come out even better. With Viva Piniata hitting the DS also, the cartoon on TV what you think those kids want to play on a homeconsole?

Banjo, don't know, we'll see.

The only interesting PS3 game I see this year is Little Big Planet. Nothing more really.

Jamaicangmr3710d ago

Really Mart only LBP? You need to cut the crap. Motor storm and Resistance where both heavy hitters for the PS3 millions sold. Don't you think the fans of those series will be picking up those games come launch? Not to mention the golden bullet that is Killzone 2. Maybe none of these are of interest to you but to the rest of the world they are.

trancefreak3710d ago

its because your a bot from xbotkings

gamersday083710d ago

If it wins any award, the sun will rise from the west the next morning and elephants could climb trees. It can't even hold the attention of those kids at the mall for 10mins.

As for Banjo, R&C beats it hands down and R&C was released almost 1 year before it.

XBOX sucks...royally with those lineups

Cajun Chicken3710d ago

That's quite lackluster if that's a holiday lineup.
