5 PS3 games that'll kick ass this Christmas

Play-Mag Writes:

"Christmas is nearly upon us– boo! Every year, the holiday period becomes gradually more depressing as we all painfully embrace old age, but the games perennially deliver. In 2007, the 360 had BioShock, Mass Effect and Halo 3. Without a doubt, it was Microsoft's year, while Sony struggled along with Lair, Heavenly Sword, Ratchet and, to a lesser extent, Uncharted. This year, I'm a little more confident about the PS3's prospects; as well as the usual batch of exciting, exclusive titles, the range of multiformat games on the market is also more interesting than it has been in recent years. Here are our picks:

Fallout 3
Mirror's Edge
Prince Of Persia
MotorStorm: Pacific Rift

Something's missing from that list that is extremely obvious. First one to tell me what it is gets a bubble.

...Valkyria Chronicles?

Kyo3672d ago

Resistance 2 will outsell any PS3 game on that list they picked except for LBP.

Nineball21123672d ago

I agree with Kyo. R2 will be a big seller, but not quite as big as LBP.

It's Resistance 2 but many people said it before....

robotnik3671d ago

With so many games I dont know what to buy, Bioshock, LPB, Resistance 2, Far Cry 2 and Valkyrie Chronicles are in my want list.
But I still have a crapload of Ps2 games to finish.

juuken3671d ago (Edited 3671d ago )

Also, has this guy even played Drakes??? "To a lesser extent Drakes Fortune"???

This game was amazing. I still spin the camera in amazement when I play it and I have finished the entire game 5 times.....

Xbox360 did NOT win the holiday season last year. Not even close.

I have one and I didnt pick the controller up.

My time was spent playing


I didnt touch the 360.....

cmrbe3672d ago

In terms of ratings R2 will kick Gears 2 ass. Mark my words. R2 will be the shooter of the year.

jwatt3672d ago

Please don't say out sell, I think Resistance will be close in terms of scores but we all know Gears is going to sell like crazy. Keep in mind the 360 still has the install base advantage

juuken3671d ago

Yes socomnick, because you have the game already and you've played it.
Jealousy, do your thang!

Fallout 3 --- Wow who the hell funded this the first two sucked ass
Mirror's Edge ---- Wow exciting a game about the edge of a mirror

GiantEnemyLobster3672d ago

I'd rather end up getting coal this year

INehalemEXI3672d ago (Edited 3672d ago )

WKC (White Knight Chronicles) is supposed to ship on christmas day only confirmed for that date in japan though.

Its going to be PS3's big exclusive RPG. You should at least mention this game if your doing a list like this IMO.

LarVanian3672d ago

IMO after the release of WKC, I believe that there will be a huge line-up of exclusive RPGs to follow on PS3.

Palodios3672d ago (Edited 3672d ago )

Uh,yeah right. I'm as big a sony fan as anyone, but name one other exclusive rpg due out before 2010. Considering how far in advance we hear about sony's games, if there were more coming any time soon, we'd know by now.
