360 To Dominate Starting In May?

It seems Microsoft are looking to completely obliterate the competition in the second half of 2007. Just look at their line-up:

May - Forza 2
June - Shadowrun
July - Mass Effect
August - Blue Dragon
September - Halo 3
October - Grand Theft Auto 4
November - Project Gotham Racing 4
December - Lost Odyssey

How could any gamer resist a run like that? Combined with a price drop, Microsoft could very well boost their sales back over the top of the Wii, which currently dominates next-gen console sales.

The story is too old to be commented.

Assuming all those games meet their release dates, then yes, the near future is pretty bright for the 360. Throw in a price cut (you hear me, MS?) and you'll see a lot of new 360 buyers.

PS3 probably can't match any kind of price drop, but they do have a decent stable of games in store. I think this fall belongs to 360, but after this stretch of great games, what will they have to sustain momentum? Can Sony steal some of that next year with FFXIII and MGS4?

And don't forget: GTA comes out for both, as does Assassin's Creed.

Regardless: It's good to be a gamer right now.

killzone 2, devil may cry 4, lair, heavenly sword, and home

but yea both have some pretty sweet games coming out soon i have to decide if i should buy a new console

home isn't a game, it's an interactive chat room.

And "live" just an online service

Correction: It's good to have an xbox 360 right now.

I'm going to go broke between now and Christmas. My wife sometimes calls herself a "Xbox widow." Funny thing is, I've gotten her hooked on Hexic.

ben hates you4235d ago

SAMMAN74235d ago (Edited 4235d ago )

summer/fall for heavenly sword apparently but yea i'm eventually gonna get a 360 this year or atleast i hope.

Schmeltz4235d ago

I'm dying to see what this is going to look like, PGR3 had great graphics and gameplay, it will be amazing what Bizare Creations will do with their second game on the 360. I hope it will come in november.

gogators4235d ago

then I could see some separation from it's competition. Still, Sony is going to have some good games through the year. A price drop would be one thing that I doubt Sony could match.

What happend to Bioshock, Two Worlds, and Too Human? Two months with Forza before Mass Effect ruins July wouldn't be too bad, though I thought Mass Effect was slated for more around June. It would be nice to get some actual release dates like Take 2 did with GTA.

Can't believe I missed BioShock, Two Worlds, and Too Human. ESPECIALLY BioShock; that's been on my "must-have" list for a while now. I guess I need to either get a second job, or start visiting the local blood bank.
