MS: 360 surprises coming in 2009, most not announced

Xbox 360 owners can look forward to plenty of surprise titles in 2009, most of which haven't been announced, Microsoft has said.

Speaking to VideoGamer.com Microsoft's UK head of gaming and entertainment Stephen McGill said that there was "lots of great stuff" coming in 2009 that people "don't know about".

o well I hope there are really some TITLES...that are hidden for 2009

Anton Chigurh4029d ago

MOVIES !!!!!!

I hope you didn't mean MGS4 . that game was a true AAA title

thor4029d ago

You realise game companies do this all the time to get you hyped for games that never materialise (BBC secret game, team ICO anyone?) If there are surprises coming, they are for 2010 most likely and will be ANNOUNCED in 09.

SCThor4029d ago

I put my money on that one.

sonarus4028d ago

MGS4 on 360 for 2009 would be bigger than every other 360 game announced for next yr. It would be bigger than Alan wake easily, splinter cell(assuming it comes next yr) only game that would be bigger would be Halo Recon...

You can call it a movie all you want but you better pray that you get it because it would do a lot to strengthen that nxt yr lineup

NO_PUDding4028d ago

Thor, the BBC game is not hyped by Sony, that was BBC themselves.

And not only that, if 'most' haven't been annoucned already, it measn there's aren't very many that we don't already know about.

It's not like the announcements we'll get from Sony in 2009.

We have:

The Jaffe Game
Team ICO
1 SCEE game
Uncharted 2.

thor4028d ago

OK I agree there - but surely you agree MS are just hyping up that they have "announcements" and "surprises" coming to appease their fanbase when they actually don't have much in store for 09? Think of KZ2 - yes it's coming, yes it will be brilliant, but it was shown ages ago to get everyone hyped up about the future (because the present wasn't so great). Same with the 360 next year.

NO_PUDding4028d ago

Doesn't matter.

If next year goes without as many delays on the PS3, it will have a larger supply of AAA titles as the first party FINALLY kicks in.

I am never saying it's going to be the year of the PS3, because, ofcourse, for me, with LBP and Valkyria Chronicles, it already is, but I expect a better release scedule next year, for the PS3.

MUCH BETTER.

Hell this fall is amazing.

-Angel-4028d ago

Just like 2008, I think this will continue to be year of the PS3 for me. Despite games that are released multiplat, I will still get a PS3 version. So it's PS3 for me. I doubt MS will grab my interest especially after the NXE...so, I'm not expecting a surprise...

Lord Anubis4028d ago

their surprise is 3rd party titles. (multiplatform with some sort of DLC exclusivity) i lold

We already know about the 2 Halo games coming out next year,that's why we chose Ps3 instead

DavidMacDougall4029d ago

"MS: 360 surprises coming in 2009, most" rip offs and rushed to keep up with sony because there last card to play was GearsOfWar2

lokiroo4204028d ago

Deadman your posts have become more of a pronlem than fbi's, at least there is some humor in his as the 360 fanboys such as yourself bite heavily on his bate.

AngryTypingGuy4028d ago

I don't know, I think Deadman's post is pretty funny...and telling. FBI is a typical naive loser fanboy that has no life, no friends, and is destined to remain a virgin forever.

AngryTypingGuy4028d ago

Follow up: OK, I just clicked on FBI's profile, and Deadman is NOT, I repeat, NOT exaggerating. Holy sh!t. FBI truly is a loser with no life.

FBI, I don't care if you are a biased fanboy who will never admit the 360 does some things better than the PS3. There will always be people like you. But for the love of God, and for your own well being, get a life off of the computer.

BLUR1114028d ago (Edited 4028d ago )

FBI is the same person with the accounts as the trolling expert and he should of stuck with that account cause the name says it all.lol.

I can tell by all his acounts is the same sony lover gay sh!t.

Lanoire4028d ago

Yea and which console doesnt have "surprises"?

Fact is, there is NO REASON whatsoever for consumers to purchase a 360 over a PS3 as the PS3 offers more in terms of value, functionality and games.

Keele4028d ago (Edited 4028d ago )

Humor? Trolling expert?

HES THE MOST PATHETIC, WORST TROLL I'VE EVER SEEN and I've seen many.

He tries to be funny and smart but fails at it miserably. The only people who laugh at his childish insults are a bunch of prepubescent brats who find it humorous and giggle like a school girl when anyone disses the xbox360.

The only reason he keeps coming back again and again is because he feels somewhat significant here. Hes a stupid prick without a life, plain and simple but you already knew that.

I say let him feel good about himself, after all this website is the only thing he has.

Emmo4027d ago

No worries Lanoire, you keep playing your few exclusives and well keep playing the better multiplatform games and exclusives.

Quick!

Somebody start a MGS4 rumour.

WIIIS14028d ago

Despite the hyped reviews, MGS4 was in truth a horrible game and a horrible movie, supported by the fact that it did nothing for the growth of PS3. So I don't see why anyone would think that it is an essential addition to the already strong library of 360 games.

-Angel-4028d ago

Did you play MGS4?

I know it's a matter of opinion and preference in the end. But if you're an X360 fanboy, then I understand why you think it's horrible.

sukru4028d ago

I'm a 360 person (you may call a fanboy, but I don't like it).

But I accept that MGS4 was a very good title. I bought a (used) PS3 just to play it (and resold later). But it was worth all the effort.

I think that may tell something.

elorm94028d ago

Kojima himself said that the game was for the FANS not an entry point for newcomers. I've played MGS2 and MGS3 so I already knew what to expect

thewhoopimen4028d ago (Edited 4028d ago )

As a game, MGS4 is far more polished than even geow2. Unquestionably even if you don't like the story, it carries far more depth than geow2.
Gameplay mechanics is on par or better with even more custom moves than geow2. You can cover, crawl, lay on your back, blend into shadows or surroundings, etc. You can grab an enemy like geow2, but you can 9+ vs ways of how you deal with them besides using them as a body shield.

FBl4029d ago

Microsoft have no other option at this point;They must include a CELL processor in their console if they want Gears of War 3 to outdo MGS4

PirateThom4029d ago

Microsoft's exclusive deal with Epic was for 2 games, I wouldn't be surprised if Gears 3 ended up on PS3 any way, unless Microsoft want to open the cheque book again.

TheMART4028d ago

First I don't think it'll be that way

Second, if it will it'll arrive at Christmas 2010. Allmost 2011. In 2011 and 2012 the next wave of consoles will arrive. So Gears 3 won't drive consolesales that much for a specific platform anymore. Gears 1 and Gears 2 do.

Third, getting Gears 3 one would miss out the total trilogy to play through, thus not logical for a gamer.

For sure you're missing out now:

Gears 2 - 9.6 out of 10 average
Resistance 2 - 9.0 out of 10

elorm94028d ago

"Third, getting Gears 3 one would miss out the total trilogy to play through, thus not logical for a gamer."

You guys are getting FF13 and we're getting Versus exclusive. So technically, you guys are gonne miss out on part of the story.

Also, you might want to check the averages now, they're both 9.2 average

Omega44029d ago

I can already picture E3 2009:

Forza 3
Halo3:recon gameplay
KI:3
Perfect Dark 2/ New Conker game
Some sort of Exclusive DLC

And of course no game conference would be complete without another PS3 exclusive coming to 360, most likely MGS4 or FFvsXIII

Pennywise4029d ago

OO Exciting rehashes and sloppy seconds. GOOOO MS!

mintaro4029d ago

While those games would be good, I cant help but notice how many numbers there are: Forza 3, KI3, I need Microsoft to give us some new IP's.

Crazywhitie4029d ago

I wouldn't mind KI3, It's going to go good to be a 360 Owner in 09......
I mean the ps3 is getting Second Life which may help them chat with each other...

OOG4029d ago (Edited 4029d ago )

Most of the big games that have come out over the past year have been sequels......

Let me see....

MGS4, GTA4, Fallout 3, Fable 2, Gears of War 2, Resistance 2, CoD WaW, Gran Turismo Prologue, DMC 4, Ninja Gaiden 2 and so on and so on..............

FReeDoM4ALL4029d ago

Yes, but Sony has put more of an effort into making new IPs. LBP, Heavy Rain, Infamous, Uncharted etc etc.

elorm94029d ago

Thing here is that not all PS3 exclusive games are sequels. Uncharted, Heavenly Sword, LittleBigPlanet, MAG, Warhawk, Quantum Theory are some examples.

Aclay4029d ago

@ Omega4

If SquareEnix actually had plans of bringing FF versus XIII to the 360, I think that they would have announced that back at E3 this year along with FFXIII going multi. If anyone wants the full Final Fantasy experience you'll just have to get a PS3 and it's as simple as that.

Plus, Tetsuya Nomura is one of the lead designers for Versus XIII and he's a huge Playstation fan. The chances of Versus XIII going multi. is very small, and the chances of Kingdom Hearts 3 being a PS3 exclusive is pretty high too considering that Nomura is the lead designer.

OOG4029d ago

I could do the same thing as you guys......

MS - Gears is a new franchise since the 360 was made, Blue Dragon, Infinite Undiscovery, Crackdown, Kameo, Lost Odyssey, Alan Wake etc....

But whatever to each his own.....but dont be one sided

NegativeCreepWA4029d ago

I'm going out on a limb here, but is it possible that both have plenty of great games to play.
