Sony Owned 2009, Will Own 2010 and 2011: Exclusives Galore (Year End Articles)

Just when you thought the hardware giant from the land of the rising sun shot all their bullets in 2009, they've reloaded and are ready to rumble yet again in 2010. Looking back at the year that was, (2009 is almost out), one would think Sony played all its cards: Redesigned PS3 Slim, new price point, Killzone 2, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and a PSN overhaul just to name a few. The team at Sony's PlayStation division practically outdid themselves this year. Aaron Greenberg might be talking about 2010 as a better year than 2009 for the Xbox 360 and rightfully so, 360's lineup was weak; Sony owned 2009. But the bigger story is that they're set to do it all over again in 2010. In fact they've got it bagged already, and 2011 looks even more promising. Let's examine the situation.

Is this all this website writes flamebait articles. Since that's all I see coming from this blog. Everytime I see the words gamerthirstarticles its always a flamebait article. There really is no point in reporting it since it will most likely get approved regardless.

Saaking3219d ago

Sony won 2008 as well (LBP, MGS4, Resistance 2), definitely won 2009 (KZ2, Ratchet and Clank, Demon's Soul, Uncharted 2, inFAMOUS), and looks like they're gonna own 2010 as well (GOWIII, GT5, Heavy Rain, MAG, WKC, Modnation Racers, TLG, AGENT, and more). While we don't know much about 2011, I'm sure they're gonna win again.

Why? Sony has a LOT more first party deves than Nintendo or MS.MS simply cannot compete unless they shell out tons of money to secure third party exclusives and Nintendo will still rely on Mario so they're good.

Look at this epic pic. PS3 ladies are HOT!

Mr Bot3219d ago (Edited 3219d ago )

already owned the first half of 2010 and set to own the whole 2010!!

so no one will say wait until next year!!! the waiting is over ps3 is now the dominating console and is the top in exclusive quality games and those who care about sale then also ps3 is doing better than the competition!

and as of yesterday, officially Killzone 2 became the Halo killer!!! according to many critics and gamers and specially gamespot which was always on 360 side!!!

damn, ps3 left 360 with nothing to talk about this year except their monthly price cuts!!

i remember when 360 fanboys use to say that we always say "wait for 2007, wait for 2008, wait for 2009....wait for 2012" but now we are not waiting, we are celebrating and enjoying.

thereapersson3219d ago

I can't wait to see what Rockstar has in store for us in the form of AGENT. It's being made by the same team that developed the PS2 Grand Theft Auto games, so you know it's going to be good regardless!

Cold 20003219d ago (Edited 3219d ago )

What a stupid article, 2010 hasnt started yet let alone 2011 and they are already declaring the winner ?!

And to respond to Saakings idiotic post:

360 won 2007, no doubt about that

2008 is a tie since the 360 had Lost Odyssey, L4D, Ninja Gaiden 2, Tales of Vesperia, Fable 2 and Gears 2. In fact for a 360 fan like me I would even put the 360 ahead of the PS3 in 2008, so you see its completely subjective.

As for 2009, well the 360 had a poor year, so yeah Sony took it this year.

But already saying that Sony is going to win 2010 though the year hasnt started yet is simply stupid, especially when you know the 360 has a AAA title almost per month for the first hlf of 2010. And Natal for fall.

Anyway, I cant expect you to say anything else than Sony is going to own 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and beyond, I mean you're freaking Saaking.

irepbtown3219d ago

Cold 2000. It's a prediction,
Seeing the exclusives tells the story of 2010, i don't read much or even hear much of 360 exclusives.

Just a question, anyone can answer...
Is halo Reach coming out 2010?
It seems like a good game.

gaffyh3219d ago

@1 - Yes

2010 is locked down to Sony imo, because the have sequels to some of the most anticipated games e.g. GT5, GOW3 and The Last Guardian, not to mention unique experiences such as Modnation Racers, Heavy Rain, and Yakuza 3.

Xbox 360 has some great games next year, and I'm really looking forward to Mass Effect 2, but PS3 is going to win next year on account of Quality AND Quantity. 360 only has Quality going for it, which at least is better than this year...

zeeshan3219d ago

There is one simple fact that X360 fanboys need to accept. PS3's exclusive lineup will beat the crap out of 360's lineup at any given day. Now that all the first party devs have understood how PS3 works and since they have improved their engines, codes and are working together, sharing tips and ideas, they'll keep churning out great games. Sony's first party lineup is bigger than M$ and Nintendo combined. Remember that there are still some heavy hitters remaining to be uncovered like Twisted Metal etc.

LukaX233219d ago

I PREFER the PS3 over the 360, but these f*cking articles are PATHETIC and make PS3 users look like a bunch of stupid fanboys.

thereapersson3219d ago

At least Saaking has made an effort to try an improve the quality of his comments, showing less fanboyism and more objective commentary. If you'd pay attention, you would know that he makes constructive comments in both PS3 articles AND X360 articles. Meanwhile, you continue to troll and disparage anything Sony related, and then make a little b1tch fit regarding PS3 fanboys.

sikbeta3219d ago (Edited 3219d ago )

I don't know what this article mean when say "OWNED"

This gen is all about teh salez, maybe they are talking about PS3 sales instead of the Awesome 2009 Line-Up

For ME, Sony will OWN 2010 because of the HUGE AMOUNT OF GAMES I'll OWN, not cuz a game sell a Sh*load of copies or stuff like that

Applegate3219d ago (Edited 3219d ago )

Sony will own 2012 too.

Cold 20003219d ago

You know what ? I really cant care less aboput your opinion, you're pretty much of a fanboy yourself, so naturally you would come out to support Saaking because the bullsh*t that comes out of his mouth fits your agenda.

I too can go into PS3 threads, kiss Sony's ass all day long up in there so that people like you can give me some bubbles and improve my reputation then stealth troll or say pure bullsh*t like what he has just posted here. But I choose not too. Why ? I freaking dont care.

thereapersson3219d ago

Sony does have more first and second party developers than Microsoft, so the amount of exclusives that are inherently available to Sony is greater than that of Microsoft. Of course, since you don't care, you'll come up with some lame excuse of how the PS3 "has no AAA games" or some other stupid BS that's been thrown around since the inception of the console. So you know what? I also don't give a damn. I guess that makes us even, doesn't it? ;)

Cold 20003219d ago (Edited 3219d ago )

Its funny that with the poor number of first party studios MS has they are still going to offer as many exclusives: Mass Effect 2, Splinter Cell, Crackdown 2, Fable 3, Halo Reach, Alan Wake, Rare games, new Mistwalker game and more.

Some of the best 360 games arent from 1St party but that doesnt change the fact that they are AAA games.

I know, like the typical fanboy, you are going to say bu...bu...bu... I can play them on PC. Yah right, thats why you guys are NEVER in the PC threads for those games or for any other PC games for the matter.

I game isnt good because its first party. Gears is on top of Resistance (since you Sony fanboys were putting it up against Gears in 2008) for instance in almost every domain but its from Epic.

Anyway while you'll be pretending that Sony's "owns 2010" and beyond I'll be enjoying the finest AAA exclusives starting January, and that till December.

thereapersson3219d ago (Edited 3219d ago )

Nope, I won't be playing them on my PC, I'll be playing them on my 360.

You are trying so damn hard to fight for a cause which nobody seems to know what it is. How old are you again? You're looking awfully desperate right about now... :D

Oh wait, you ran out of bubbles. Looks like you won't be participating any more in this discussion. Try again next time, maybe?

pippoppow3219d ago

Sure it's nice that the 360 has more PC ports to play on their system. It helps them but lets not call games that are out on the PC and only one console exclusive. The 360 will have a good year gaming wise in 2010 but will lack in exclusives as usual. Yes it has PC ports that do not appear on other consoles but that only really matters to gamers who do not own a decent PC. There are other platforms besides consoles after all even though the diehard console warriors believe otherwise.

MS will have a good year next year but knowing their history means that 2011 and possibly 2012 will most likely be mediocre. This problem will persists unless MS invests, buys or builds 1st/2nd party studios.

I also find it interesting that if PC ports are so important than why not get the superior PC version since so many 360 fanatics claim to want to play the best version. PC version cost less, has better graphics, may have more content, Free DLC and mods, no online fees and usually with dedicated servers. All while being able to hook up to an HDTV if required.

Just enjoy gaming!
Of`course this depends on taste, but in my opinion Great Games:

GeoW 2, Fb2, L4D, LO

KZ2, R&C, DS, U2, inF
F3, HW, L4D2, H:ODST

Great years for all gamers! It`s just PS3 is a little better on my taste. =)
And for many respected sites too...)

LMAO bubble
im wondering what happen to gost of sparda he was on the same level of fanbaoyism of saaking

PopEmUp3219d ago

Look like Cold 2000 is getting upset, that so cute :P

NotSoSilentBob3219d ago

"2008 is a tie since the 360 had Lost Odyssey, L4D, Ninja Gaiden 2, Tales of Vesperia, Fable 2 and Gears 2."
MGSIV, LBP, Resistance 2,wipEpoutHD, GT5: Prologue say hello, Ninja Gaiden is not exclusive as Sigma2 is on ps3.

"Rare games, new Mistwalker game and more"
If you want to play that game Ps3 has over 20 first party studios that only a few have announced games.

I don't own a 360 nor do I plan to ever buy one, but half the games you have mentioned are on my computer so they are NOT EXCLUSIVE to the 360. Mass Effect 1&2 are both BETTER on PC.

I might be a PS3 fanboy cause I don't own a 360 but I don't care what other people think I am looking at it from both sides and I prefer what I get with my Big Black Beast.

rezenu3219d ago

I find it hilarious that both sides are fighting over this article.

The title is flamebait. Look at it.

Sheikh Yerbouti3219d ago

Saaking declared Sony the winner for 2008 to infinity, based it on the fact Sony has more first party, and quickly left the conversation.

Then there's this influx of comments and ire directed at Saaking. Some posting multiple times. Saaking really has taken your guys' power.

thegood333218d ago

Mass Effect 2, Splinter Cell: Conviction, Alan Wake, Crackdown 2, Halo Reach, Fable 3, Metro 2033...and most of those come early in the year. Not to mention the fact that Bayonetta is ten times better on the box, and will be better then GOW3 (yes just accept it fanboys) then it's an easy, easy victory for the 360.

And that's not even bringing up a dozen Natal games that will be out later this year.

Boy, I sure hope Sony's 20 gazillion developers are hard at work...Cuz right now they gettin taken to the woodshed.

Zaaking3218d ago

Microsoft won 2008 as well (Lost Odyssey, L4D, Ninja Gaiden 2, Tales of Vesperia, Fable 2 and Gears 2), definitely won 2009 (Forza 3, Halo Wars, Ninja Blade, L4D2, Halo:ODST), and looks like they're gonna own 2010 as well (Mass Effect 2, Splinter Cell, Crackdown 2, Fable 3, Halo Reach, Alan Wake, and more). While we don't know much about 2011, I'm sure they're gonna win again.

Why? Microsoft has a LOT more third party deves than Nintendo or Sony.Sony simply cannot compete unless they shell out tons of money to secure third party exclusives and Nintendo will still rely on Mario so they're good.

Immortal3213218d ago

sales or reviews? with sales you can tell how many gamers bought it, with reviews you can tell either the game is good or bad based on the reviewers opinions.

I remember back when I just look at the back of the game case. Then the internet came along then I started to look at the gameplay videos to determine either the 2 games I wanted to play the most.

Now I just look at the reviews to determine which game to choose from. I never thought which game was better because one sold the most.

the reason why I post this comment was to ask a question, Can we just let the game do the talking instead of listening to mindless fanboys spewing opinions that didn't make it on the box art?

media + fanboy = upset stomach for the gaming community

Here are some worth mention exclusives:

MGS4, LBP, R2, VC, M:PR(good/bad)
GeoW 2, Fb2, L4D(pc), LO(good/bad), NG2+ToV(timed)

KZ2, R&C, DS, U2, inF
F3, HW, L4D2(pc), H:ODST, GTA:DLC

If in 2008, x360 ended year so-so with help of Gears 2 and Fable 2 + multiplatform game L4D, which PS3 owners could enjoy on their PCs.

This year was just total PWNAGE!
x360 had 3 DLC, not even games, just some expanded sequels, LOL.
Forza 3? You know, that definiteve LOL and Halo wars(just a good one game).

Was M$ sleeping this year or what? =))

talltony3218d ago

PS3 is stealing the show!

JasonPC360PS3Wii3218d ago

Sony had games in 2009, the PS3 has 3 known games coming out and about 5 never heard of games. In 2010 Sony has nothing for the PS3 because they pushed them all out in 2009 to try and take 2nd for two whole months.

Que the list of dreams, never heard of, 2012, and unconfirmed fluffy list droids.
