it wouldn't be good to release all these AAA games on PS3 at once so they had to spread out about 1 AAA title a month I think. it's smart so that they sell well and its better in this economy

MetalGearBear 3833d ago

not much in 09.
too much in 2010. dammit!!!!
i can't afford all of them.

red2tango3833d ago

we all said that about 09 and everything got pushed back. atleast I still get my uncharted 2, modern warfare 2, assassin's creed 2 and maybe gt5 if we're lucky.

dannyhinote_133833d ago


I think of GT5 was going to be a 2009 game, they would have announced it at E3. I guess there's always TGS...but I really, really doubt it'll be out in 09.

red2tango3833d ago

ye i know that's why i said hopefully cuz they said they can release it whenever at this point. so we'll see at TGS.

stevenhiggster3833d ago

Uncharted 2 and MW2 are probably the games I'm looking forward to the most. But in terms of quality and quantity 2010 wins hands down.

FarEastOrient3833d ago

No can argue that the competition is really about how our wallets are going to be hammered over the next 12 months.

gamewise (not saleswise)Ps3 owned first halve of 2009, but the 360 owns the later half of 2009, and the first half of 2010.

red2tango3833d ago (Edited 3833d ago )

are you on drugs? with what? halo? man please

ps3 got uncharted 2, ratchet and clank, ninja gaiden sigma 2, deamon souls, MAG and fat princess while 360 only got ODST and Splinter Cell. Splinter Cell is good but Uncharted alone kills it. ODST is confirmed to be shorter than Halo 3.

and 2010 has WKC, Heavy Rain and the game that blows all away God of War 3. Get your head checked man.

shutupandplay3833d ago (Edited 3833d ago )

Hahaha. A rehashed 360 game minus the blood, ANOTHER ratchet game, an arcade game and uncharted. Woah, color me impressed.

@ shocky: Go ahead and ad left 4 dead 2.

shocky163833d ago (Edited 3833d ago )

Splinter Cell
Forza 3
Shadow Complex
GTA: Ballad of Gay Tony
Splosion Man (9/10 at IGN)
Left 4 Dead 2

red2tango3833d ago

@shutupandplay why dont you do as your name says

another ratchet game? I don't know if you've ever seen a ratchet game on ps3 but it looks like a pixar movie and they're good games.

atleast sigma runs at a native hd level. blood doesn't make a game. you're obviously new to gaming young b*tch. you probably think halo is the best thing since grilled cheese.

and have you ever played uncharted? no. it still looks better than any ps3 or 360 shooter. it's better than killzone 2. uncharted 2 is a quality game. get your head out of your boyfriend's ass.

shutupandplay3833d ago (Edited 3833d ago )

4 ratchets on ps2 and 2 on ps3. I guess there goes the halo 3 milking argument. Yes ratchet is a fun game, but it is very childish. I bet you think ratchet is the best thing since tonka toys.
I know blood does not make a game, I just think it`s rather hilarious that you are excited for an old 360 game minus the cool part of it.
...I don`t like grilled cheese.

mynd3833d ago (Edited 3833d ago )

ps3 got uncharted 2, ratchet and clank, deamon souls while 360 only got ODST and Splinter Cell, Forza 3, Left 4 Dead 2, Magnacarta 2, Dungeon Hero, . Splinter Cell is good but Uncharted alone kills it. ODST is confirmed to be shorter than Halo 3, but still sell4 x more then Uncharted 2 (which is sad, U2 deserves more). Forza 3 will have no peer, and Left for Dead 2 will be another million seller for Valve.

Fixed that for you. And if you dont own a 360, you shouldnt care what the otherside has.

Face it the 360 held back all it's games till the end of the year, Sony released theirs throughout the year, no big drama. But to suggest that Sonys line up for the next 5 months is better?

As for arcade, I'm not even going start on Fat princess vs the pleathora of arcade titles coming out, it's not even a fair comparisim.

red2tango3833d ago

A lot of 360 fanboys in the main thread defending their console. Someone suggested Halo ODST is better than Uncharted 2. Sad.....

cyberwaffles3833d ago (Edited 3833d ago )

both are doing really well for the latter half of the year but overall i think 2009 was the ps3's year

killzone 2


MLB the show

demon's soul

MAG (i don't care what a retailer says, sony still listed it for '09)

ratchet and clank

i guess ninja gaiden sigma 2 but i was never amazed by NG2

uncharted 2 (what game looks this good?)

fat princess (don't knock it just because it's an arcade game, didn't
everyone love castle crashers on XBL?)

and some other pretty decent psn games like savage moon, burn zombie burn, and shatter etc

360 did good too

halo wars (only played the demo, seems meh but everyone else says its good)

ODST (may revitalize my halo interest again)

splinter cell conviction

shadow complex (one of the best games i've seen in a long time. i just hope the d-pad ain't horrible)

GTA4 dlc (can't stand GTA4 so whatever)

left 4 dead 2 (looks and sounds EXACTLY the same as left 4 dead. don't care what you any of you say. i'll probably get it for pc just to check it out)

forza 3

as for 2010 for ps3

the agency
white knight chronicles
final fantasy versus XIII
god of war 3
heavy rain
the last guardian
modnation racers
quantum theory (i might not like this if it plays like gears)
final fantasy XIV
gran turismo 5

360 2010 (need help on this list)
mass effect 2
blue dragon 2
alan wake
and probably more but i honestly don't know any

i just think the ps3 has an overall bigger list of games but it doesn't necessarily mean every game will be good, same goes for the 360 of course. and it only takes one game to take up a person's whole life and this is like a gargantuan list of games which doesn't even included multiplatform titles. and whoever thought all of sony's announced games were coming in 2009 were stupid. everyone knows publishers try to spread out release dates, especially from other rival big name games. you can't have games compete with eachother in sales so everyone should've known most games were going to be pushed in 2010.

edit: forgot crackdown 2

rockleex3833d ago

Are coming out tonight, aren't they? -_-"

mynd3833d ago

Depends what your crieria is, for shear number of "not on the other consoles" releases, the 360 beats the PS3 hands down this year:

Race Pro
Star Ocean 4
Halo Wars
Ninja Blade
Battlestations: Pacific
Velvet Assasin
Forza 3
Splinter Cell Conviction
Left 4 Dead 2
Magna Carta II
Dungeon Hero

Killzone 2
Ucharted 2
MLB 09:The Show
Ratchett and Clank Future 2

Undoubtly some will argue its quality over quantiy, and are probably right.

On the other hand, you've listed a lot PS3 games for next year but very little 360 games. Again, if you look at what has alreayd been released this year, you'd have to be genuinly surprised to find that this time next year we will be in the same boat with more titles relased on the 360 than on the PS3.

The question will always be argugd to 5 8.0 games beat 2 9.0 games?

In saying that, it seems that Sony fanes will rate all of their games 9.0 no matter what. Perhaps if they strip away the OMG grpahics and took a good look at the core mechanics they might relaise they are leading into Xmas with 2 platformers (U2 is undoubtably more than that alone), a genre that MS doesnt even bother with.

Car racing, Sci-fi, snaek-em up, mulitplayer online
RPG, Platformer and platformer/shooter.

Perhpas SOny fans should stop asking which has the better graphics, but which has th ebetter genres?

GT5 before Xmas would save Sony, perhaps even beat the compeittion with it.

Unicron3833d ago (Edited 3833d ago )

My fall is still packed... Batman, Assassin's Creed 2, Modern Warfare 2, Ratchet & Clank, Demon's Souls, Brutal Legend, Army of Two 2, Uncharted 2, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, Saboteur, Fat Princess, Castle Crashers, and TMNT Remix, and Splinter Cell Conviction... and probably a few more I'm forgetting.

That's still an assload of titles to play any way you slice it. Having Bayonetta, God of War 3, Darksiders off to early 2010 gives me a breather! My poor, poor wallet.

Pizzagaki3833d ago

too much games, impossible, there is no such thing as too much games :)

raztad3833d ago (Edited 3833d ago )

Thats true when you are a kid, not need to work and your parents get the games for you. Otherwise, no enough downtime and money.

Preordering Demon's Souls and Ratchet & Clank:ACiT. I already made my mind, no getting any new multiplat this year and pushing UC2 back to december, in order to play some old games: UC1 (dont want the graphics of the second spoil me) and L4D1 (this one gonna cost less than 20$ after the "sequel" is released).
