They've already shown a huge (and growing) list of games that may make 2010 the biggest year in gaming. Now, here are Brave New Gamer's top ten new IP's, which may well turn into franchises of their own, of the coming year!
2010 is going to be a great year, especially the first half. Right now I think I'll only be able to afford 1 game in January and the rest are gonna have to wait. After that, I hope I can get Heavy Rain and SCC and then I have no idea. Perhaps there's too many games, but I'm sure we'll manage.
I think I spent $400 dollars on games this year. Next year's going to kill me. :(
E3 can't come soon enough, once you see new IPs from Guerilla Games and Sony Liverpool, that i saw last month during secret Sony event in Paris, you will freak out...
List is missing a more than a handful of new IPs I believe. I know a few others that should be mentioned. Among those not mentioned. I know at least 5 of them will be making some type of big splash. MAG (PS3) Singularity (PC/Console) Metro 2033 (PC/X360) Dust 514 (PS3/X360) Alpha Protocol (PC/Console) Blacklight (PC + Console?) Tactical Intervention (PC) Project Offset (PC/Mac?) Global Agenda (PC) Stargate: Resistance (PC TPS) Infinity: Quest for Earth (PC) Black Prophecy (PC) Forged by Choas (PC) Six Days in Fallujah (PC/Console) The Secret World (PC) Huxley (PC/X360) *X360 version on hold. RUSE (PC/Console) and a few others.
Well it IS titled "Ten New IP's of 2010(...)." I think it's safe to assume that a lot will be left out.
So many great games next year. Going to definitely get: Mass Effect 2, God of War 3, Darksiders, Heavy Rain (AMAZING game), Splinter Cell, Alan Wake, FF13, Modnation Racers, GT5, The Last Guardian Maybe: Bayonetta, Yakuza 3, WKC, AVP, Dante's Inferno, Brink Not getting: MAG (too tactical for me).
Im sorry but brink looks like crap. It almost look like they are trying to be like KZ2. I'll pass on that one. Its just like Section 8 trying to be like halo.
I dunno, man. I would call it Mirror's Edge meets Quake because that's what it looks like to me.
Looks a little like Team Fortress 2 + Mirror's Edge + KILLZONE to me. Not enough about it to say its bad or good just yet though.
"It almost look like they are trying to be like KZ2." If by that you mean "better graphically and much more fun to play", then yes, I agree with you. :D Seriously, go watch those videos that are up on Xbox Live and tell me that Brink doesn't have mind blowing graphics (and a very cool overall look and feel, as well). Saying that "Brink looks like crap" is beyond ridiculous.
Heavy Rain and The Last Guardian. I'm not terribly concerned with anything else...even though I'll be getting other games. Twisted Metal would be nice too. : )
By Zeus' beard I need a new Twisted Metal, its been far too long.
Is LA Noire confirmed for 2010? I haven't heard anything about that game for a while and it is looking more and more like vaporware.
Only info I know about it is old, old stuff. I figure if it was vaporware then they'd have announced its cancellation by now. I'm assuming they're working diligently in secret for a big reveal (maybe at E3 with a Q3/4 '10 release?). Author made a good point though: sometimes it's good that we don't know a game inside-and-out before it comes out.
Lot of new IPs on PS3 next year. The Last Guardian 3D Dot Game Heroes White Knight Chronicles Heavy Rain MAG Last Rebellion
last time i checked The Last Guardian is not a new IP it's part of the ico series
while the creators may let you think its happening in the same world, the games arent official prequels/sequels. they dont even share the same core gameplay. so, each of them is a new IP. what they have in common is the amazing artistic direction.
The Last Guardian IS a new IP. "Under intellectual property law, owners are granted certain exclusive rights to a variety of intangible assets, such as musical, literary, and artistic works; discoveries and inventions; and words, phrases, symbols, and designs." TLG doesn't use the same IP as SotC OR ICO. It's a spiritual successor (like Demon's Souls is to King's Field).
Am I the only one who thinks that Heavy Rain aka "The Movie You Control" looks hella boring? I'm a ps3 fan through and through, but I just don't get it. Didn't MGS4 get criticized for being more of a movie than a game? Isn't this a step in the wrong direction? If Heavy Rain really is a "movie" you can partially determine with your decisions, I want to pay $20-30, which is what I spend on movies.
LOL. I get 8 disagrees...but no one explains to me how Heavy Rain is more than a movie. I'm a ps3 fan, and even I'M sick of the ps3 fanboyism of N4G.
It's not fanboyism (boy isn't THAT a go-to insult for close minded people...). Not every game has to cater to every gamer. You think Heavy Rain is boring? GOOD. Someone needs to, and I don't care whether you take it for what it is. Heavy Rain is different. It's a step forward in an OPEN WORLD of possibilities. You can go ANY direction with progress as long as you're doing something different and pouring heart, soul, and effort into it. You seem quite dense, though, so I don't know if you'll understand the concept of "to each his own."
Haha sure. I'm "quite dense" because I want someone to explain how Heavy Rain is more of a game than a movie. And to deny that N4G is full of PS3ers who "disagree" with everything negative ever said about Sony/PS3 is just ridiculous.
More of a game then a movie? Alright, 20,000 page script. More than any other movie ever made, as far as I know. You choose what happens. Your character lives? Cool, story goes on. You get your character killed? Oh well, story still carries on. You choose what happens. You *control* characters. Like I said, I really don't care whether you're too dense to realize what this game is (your definition of "video game" doesn't mean it's correct. Same goes for me, but I'm not going to deny it in any way).
Oh NEW IP's I almost had a meltdown when I didn't see GOWIII. Wtf is epic mickey and all points bulletin?
apb is basically a cops and robbers mmo for the pc...i also always read rumors about it eventually being on 360 and some even saying itll be on ps3
It's PC. Let's compared the exclusives that are coming out in 2010 on all three systems: PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. Total Number of PC exclusives = 20+ * Stalker: Call of Pripyat * Napoleon: Total War * Command and Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight * All Points Bulletin * American McGee's Alice 2 * Dues Ex 3 * Half-Life 2: Episode 3 * Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty * Star Wars: The Old Republic * World of Warcraft: Cataclysm * The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings * Arcadia: A Gothic Tale (i.e., Gothic 4) * Elemental: War of Magic (the fantasy version of Galactic Civilization from the same developer) * Jagged Alliance 3 * The Settlers 7: Paths to a Kingdom * Disciples III: Renaissance * Empire: Time of Troubles * Tribes: Ascension * Silent Hunter V * A Vampyre Story 2 Let's just stop at 20. There are actually more. Let's just say that PC has so many exclusives that it's hard to keep track of them all. Total number of PS3 exclusives = 8 * MAG * Heavy Rain * Yakuza 3 * God of War 3 * Gran Turismo 5 * LA Noire * The Last Guardian * ModNation Racers Total number of Xbox 360 exclusives = 5 * Alan Wake * Crackdown 2 * Fable 3 * Halo: Reach * Quake Arena Arcade Actually, the PS3 lacks the MOST games if you consider PC/Xbox 360 "semi" exclusives: Total number of PC/Xbox 360 semi-exclusives (NOT available on PS3) = 6 * Mass Effect 2 * Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction * Supreme Commander 2 * Metro 2033 * Mechwarrior * Natural Selection 2 So, if you can own one system or you only have time for one system, go for PC. PC really has the most exclusives... more than either PS3 or Xbox 360. PC has more exclusives than PS3 and Xbox 360 and Wii *COMBINED*. If you can afford a PC plus one console, then go for PS3. This is the tune most PS3 fanboys are singing, PC + PS3 > PC + Xbox 360. Of course, that's assuming "most" people can afford or have the time for a gaming PC. However, if you cannot afford a gaming PC, (which MOST people really can't; most people just don't want spend that kind of money or time,) i.e., if you can afford only ONE console, then for Xbox 360. Xbox 360 exclusives + semi-exclusives > PS3 exclusives. That's if you don't have or don't want a gaming PC. That's Microsoft's strategy: target gamers who does not have/want a gaming PC and want only ONE console. In this particular scenario, Xbox 360 > PS3. And let's be honest here: as much as PS3 fanboys want to believe Gof of War III pwns everything else, the fact is that StarCraft II will be the game of the year if not the decade. StarCraft II is practically the national religion of South Korea. South Korea's GDP is going to take a hit when that game comes out. As far as I know, God of War doesn't have that kind of followings or influence.
didnt know this was an article about exclusives
Longest. Comment. Ever. On New Years Eve.
So you played all those games through your magic crystal ball that lets you see the future? Half of the PC games you listed might be rubbish when they're released, same with the PS3 games and the 360 games. You also forgot White Knight Chronicles for the PS3. You can't say "360 wins in terms of exclusives because it has more exclusives when combined with the games also being released on PC" and not take into account all the games the PS3 had this year. I'd love to see if any of the games you mentioned manage to get a higher score then Uncharted 2. Besides Starcraft 2 of course, I wouldn't be surprised at all about that. :P It doesn't matter how much South Korea likes it though, we never know, maybe God of War 3 will receive more favorable ratings. Why are we talking about exclusives? I can't wait to see how the Last Guardian works out, loved Ico and Shadow of The Colossus.
I did not say, "360 wins in terms of exclusives because it has more exclusives when combined with the games also being released on PC" I said: (1) If a gamer wants to spend money on only ONE system, then his best choice is the PC. The PC has the biggest exclusive library in 2010, or just the biggest exclusive library -PERIOD- An exclusive PC gamer has a much, much bigger selection of games available to him than either an exclusive PS3 gamer or an exclusive Xbox 360 gamer. PCs are always 100-percent backward compatible, so a PC gamer can go all the way back and play some old-fart games all the way from the 1990s, 1980s and even 1970s -- that's A LOT, A LOT of games altogether. And actually, *every single year* the PC has had MORE exclusives than any single console system (include any PlayStation or Xbox.) My last post already showed that in 2010 the PC will have more exclusives than PS3 and Xbox 360, combined! And the list didn't even include/count most MMOs. (2) If a gamer has a gaming PC, and he wants to own one ONE console, then his best choice is the PS3. PC and Xbox 360 have a lot of overlapping titles. A lot of the Xbox 360 titles are also on the PC. So, by owning a gaming PC and a PS3, a gamer can have the larger possible selections of games available to him. (3) Now, investments in a gaming PC could be pricier and more complex than a console, (although it will pay off in the long run, but most people don't want to cough up too much money upfront.) Not everyone wants to spend too much money on a gaming PC, and not everyone knows (or wants to learn) how to shop for video cards and PC components or how to install them. So, for those people: If a gamer does not have a gaming PC and does not want to deal with one, and he wants to buy only ONE console, then his best choice is Xbox 360. By itself, Xbox 360 has fewer "true" exclusives than PS3. However, if we combine "true" exclusives and "semi" exclusives for 360, than 360 has more exclusives than PS3. This is only for people who do not own a gaming PC and want to own only ONE console. In this scenario, for this kind of gamer, a "semi" exclusive is as good as an exclusive for him. i.e., He is not going to be able to play those semi-exclusive on a PC anyway. That is why if a gamer does not have a gaming PC and is looking to get just ONE console, Xbox 360 is his best option. Microsoft's current strategy (i.e., having few "true" exclusives but many "semi" exclusives) seems to be targeting this particular segment of gamers. In conclusion, PS3 is really not the "one console that fits all". Depending on each individual gamer's situation, the best console for him could be either a PS3 or Xbox 360 -- that's assuming he wants to have the biggest possible number of exclusive choices (and therefore game choices) available to him.
I wonder if 3 of those "exclusives" won't go multiplatform or get rated so terribly low that pirates don't even play it. Besides you didn't mention all the exclusives on the ps3 or 360.
a exclusive Ps3 list of games without JRPG games is just FAIL since there will be lots releasing next year. "Total number of PS3 exclusives = 8 * MAG * Heavy Rain * Yakuza 3 * God of War 3 * Gran Turismo 5 * LA Noire * The Last Guardian * ModNation Racers" Actual total numbers of Exclusives = 16 * Last Rebellion * Ar Tonelico 3 * Atelier Rorona * White Knight Chronicles * Trinity Universe * 3D Dot Game Heroes * Trinity: Souls of Zill O'll * AGENT YEAR of the JRPG i tell you :)
If you want to break it up to games only coming out on the one platform as exclusives. But there are literally hundreds of games coming out on the PS3 and 360 that won't see the light of day on the PC. If a gamer wants access to the widest array of games out there, then the definitive choice is the 360 or the PS3, because only those two platforms will get more than half of the games released this year. You're really misleading people when you talk about just exclusives. The funny thing is that your exclusives list doesn't include all of the exclusives nor the XBLA/PSN games that will come out in the next year. Also, The Witcher 2 is now PC/360/PS3. They moved from doing a 360/PS3 version of their first game to putting the second on all platforms. Edit: Essentially, you can add the following list of games to the PS3 or 360 'exclusive' list when trying to compare games that you can only play on the 360 or PS3 in comparison to the PC since these will only be available on those two platforms. And note, this is definitely a very incomplete list and doesn't include any sequential releases (GH, RB, Buzz!, etc.) or XBLA/PSN releases.

Only on the Playstation 3, so why should I choose the Xbox 360 or PC over the Ps3? Each his own, I am not really interested in any Xbox 360 or PC game and not because I don`t own them. The opposite, Ive bought a 360 Bundle with Forza 3 in it. The Ps3 exclusives of 2010 seems more interesting for me ...
Every year Insomniac release a game most likely this year will be Resistance 3.
are those testicles in the display?
another joke of an author... lists games as NOT new IP and admits it.. guess his list would be down to Heavy Rain.... this site has to stop posting crap articles like this...anyone with a computer hooked up to the net can write crap like this..reviewers need to step it up..
I nominate you. Can't wait to tear into whatever it is that you have to write :)
Like i said brink looks like crap the character design looks sh!!ty.
So your comment doesn't make much sense.
I'm really looking forward to AVP. When I first heard about it I thought it was going to be another generic space marine shooter, but when I heard about the different campaigns and play styles for each of the types of characters it really got me interested.
im talking about how their legs look deformed hybrid like there is something not right with the way they look. their build is like popeye
