Here's a list of PS3 games releasing in January 2010.
Good start to the year for PS3 gamers, though the only exclusive, MAG, comes late January. Things just go mad for the industry as a whole once Feb and March come around, so really it all going to come down to how the big 3 keep momentum going throughout the year.
MAG is my biggest worry though. That game looks a little borderline average and I strongly doubt it will get 90's across the media. I'm aiming anywhere inbetween 70-85 for MAG. I hope that I'm wrong, but with BFBC2 there to compete against I don't think MAG stands a chance. Let's hope I'm wrong. The rest of the PS3 lineup for 2010 looks solid and promising.
acording your words halo odst is average like mag, cuz odst is around 83 in meta..
Well yeah, ODST is a minor pit stop to Reach anyway. When I said average I meant 70-80, 85 is being generous because I have doubts for MAG. We'll see how it turns out.
That is a big jump from 64 and especially the standard of 32. Funny how people were going crazy over those ODST commercials because of the scale of combat depicted. Well, a scale like that takes more players online which is what this gamebrings closer to accomplishing. Sure not every game needs more than 32 players depending on the type of game it is but it cannot be denied that more players online if done well can bring epic war scenarios like the one from that Halo commercial. As for reviews; Who really cares after all the bias and scores with 3 point swings of the same game from different pubs. Just finished RAD (Robot Alchemic Drive) and thought it was great. The story, voice acting and dialogue overall was weak but everything else was so good. On metacritic it has a score of 79 with a user score of 92. I will say that it is at least a 8.5. As a kid I liked Shogun Warriors and Transor Z and the like. This game tugged on nostalgia for sure. Now if I saw 7.9 and believed so much in what reviewers thought I'd have dimissed this game. Buy what looks good to you and don't put so much into reviews.
Maybe I'll get DarkSiders and rent MAG to see if I like it. Oh well, I have a back catalog of games to catch up with.
I hate buttonmashers so I'll probably wait for Dark Void reviews and try the MAG beta.
If you just buy games that are rated 90 or above and think that anygame below 90 is average you may not consider yourself a gamer. That because you are losing playing some of the best games and they are not overrated. Some of those 90 really doesnt deserve to be and arent good games. A gamer can formulate his own opinion of a game based on what he/she played. One little example is inFAMOUS, 87% at meta but a 92% percent in my mind. PEACE AND GAMING AND HAPPY NEW GAMING YEAR!!!!!!
I didn't say anything below 90 is average. A score around 70 screams average. And no, I don't go by scores alone so that assumption is faulty: self-experience is the best way to get a subjective understanding but reviews tend to detail gameplay and mechanics which can indicate how a game is. So, no, I'm not missing out on much because I get as much out of games as I can, and I don't judge games based solely on scores. That would be silly.
For me, MAG beta on the 5th and then the full thing on the 26th Gw. Hopefully I get to rent Darksiders during the summer drought period.
Darksiders + Bayonetta for me. I played the MAG demo, and it might just be because I came in so late, but I sucked and got killed every 2 seconds, so I did not have a good time.
Same here, it's too tactical for me, but I do know a lot of people who like SOCOM, so they should like MAG too.
Yeah, some get into MAG and immediately start to run off like they're playing CoD4 or something. They leave their squad far off in the distance and run about for kills like in MW types but eventually you understand - see those names in the light blue? yes that's you squad. Stick with them cause everyone else is with theirs. 1 Vs 8 or 1 Vs 64 is not a good idea. btw, when you played the beta, which mode was up then? Domination?
I can't even remember lol, but I'll definitely give the new beta a try just to give it another shot. I was in the very first beta, and there were way too many glitches e.g. I got stuck in a tank in one game.
Yeah, you should get on the beta coming up. Hell it's free but hey, not every game is for everybody but I can't see how a gamer can be into shooters and not enjoy MAG. It doesn't seem like you understood what to do or asked for help with your team mates with the little time you spent on the beta cause you'd for sure know what mode you were playing. Glad you found glitches in the beta and hope you reported it though. A lot of gamers this gen jump into betas and treat it like either a full game or a demo and forget it's supposed to be kinda like work. @1.4 "and especially the standard of 32" I'm assuming you're talking about standard for PS3 online games cause 16v16 is definitely not the standard on the 360, 8v8 is. Personally I don't give a rat's butt what gaming sites give MAG. They can give it 6s&7s all day long but I know tonnes of gamers will be getting this game regardless.
mag: haters got owned for this game in this month.
I didn't like the MAG beta im not going to lie. Killzone 2 still the best fps in my book, looking forward to Killzone 3 this year.
I can't wait to see KillZone 3 too cause KZ2 was the most graphical realistic game I played since Call Of Duty 4 Modern Warfare, I'm hoping they show a Killzone 3 trailer at CES or GDC or even E3 2010 this year.
Killzone 2 JUST released in 2009. If you're hoping for a Killzone 3 in 2010, be prepared for a very basic game, much like Modern Warfare 2.
Basic err no. The game was complete in 2008 but put back for Resistance 2 and killzone 2 came out start of 2009. The game engine took years to make and the map packs came out fast. They have the engine ready to build killzone 3 plus they are improving the engine even more and know more about the PS3. The graphics are going to be even more real looking.
They had the engine built for modern warfare 2 as well, what's your point? You're saying that you DON'T want them to work on it for more than a year? That's asinine.
February and March look amazing for PS3 owners... Heavy Rain White Knight Chronicles Star Ocean Last Hope: International Last Rebellion Yakuza 3 Gran Turismo 5 (supposedly) God of War III Bioshock 2 Final Fantasy XIII I'm starting to save up now so I won't be totally broke by the end of March, lol.
I believe GT5 comes out in summer not in March.
Well i'm ready ( i hope ) for february ... soo much games so little time ... the average games will be forgotten.. so everyone better to their best to produce the best games of their category
nothing id pay full retail for lol.nowdays games get lower prices weeks after release and in a few months you can get the game for half price,uk tho
So when is the first exclusive for the 360 in 2010 again?
Well 2009 was a bad year for 360 exclusives that are not on PC also. This year for exclusives is still weak compared to PS3 exclusives line up thats a fact.
is the big one, that one will have an impact im sure, but as soon as feb enters it will die down quickly. i mean splinter cell, heavy rain and few others will be around by then, to ofcourse further cement my statement.
GTAmike, I disagree, remove your sony specs and you might see Crackdown 2, Alan Wake, Halo Reach & Fable III. This is in addition to the 360/PC only games like Mass Effect 2 and Splinter Cell Conviction. Sure, you might be able to play such games on your powerful gaming PC, but not everyone is fortunate enough to own such a rig, or perhaps some prefer the simplicity of console gaming with no installs (well, in general...) etc. 2010 will be a good year both the 360 and PS3. PS3: GT5, Heavy Rain, MAG, God of War 3 for certain in the first half of the year - a few more if you include the western release of older games such as WKC and Yakuza. I don't see how this is so much better than the 360 line up? I'm sure more exclusives for both platforms will be announced as we progress into the year as well.
First Exclusive MAG FIRST FLOP HARD OF THE YEAR. Mark my Words. Sales and quality.
does anyone have a list for the first half of 2010 games coming out for ps3? both exclusive and multiplat. i want to know which purchases i need to get ready for. EDIT: cheers foxgod
www.ign.com hit ps3 button, and from the popup select upcoming games, and then click on all upcoming ps3 games.
MAG is on reserve... but the first two games i'm really really really anxious for are Heavy Rain and White Knight Chronicles...
Let me preface this month's releases with the excuses that the PS3 Supporters will be using once M.A.G. flops HARD later in the month. Remember, each one of them have been listing the title as a MAJOR PS3 exclusive for 2010, and have tried to use the title as "ammo" against the XBOX360 Fans on this website. This is what it will look like: "It's a new IP. You can't expect it to come out of the gates blazing." "It may not rate as high as the other shooters on the market, but I LOVE IT!" "I'll take 256 players over 5 vs. 5 anytime." "It'll have long legs. Trust me." "January is jammed with titles. I didn't expect a big opening." "IGN/GAMESPOT/GAMETRAILE RS/KOTAKU were bought by Microsoft to rate the title lower. I HATE MICROSOFT!" And the list goes on and on... This is the regular cycle for the PS3 Fan. They tout the title as the "next coming" all year, but when the rubber meets the road, they run like children. Typical. M.A.G. will flop. HARD. It'll get bad reviews and it'll sell like a PSN title. It won't revolutionize anything. Don't let the PS3 Fans fool you. I saw this game. IT. IS. GARBAGE. http://www.gametrailers.com... The lag on it is out of control. And NO. ONE. CARES about this title. Mass Effect 2 is the one to watch this month. Get ready. This month begins XBOX360's supremacy for 2010. So let's wait for the excuses from PS3 Supporters later in the month. I'll bookmark this post to prove it. :-)
2010 and the wall of text no one reads continues. NO. ONE. CARES. HOW. MANY. TIMES. YOU. POST. YOUR. NONSENSE.
Halo3 has way more obvious lag with 9v9 than MAG has with 128v128 and MAG graphically looks better than Halo3 online, ODST, L4D1&2 (go do your comparison vids and see for yourself) while pushing, not double, not triple but upto TWENTY(20)times more stuff on screen. Keep on hating player player lol
I'm willing to bet anything that you created a duplicate account to get your bubbles up. Well then, allow me to take one of them from you my man. That way, you can get more practice at giving yourself a reach around for more bubbles. No one wants to hear your dribble.
@ PirateThom @ Chubear @ OmarJA-N4G @ kreal_84 All 4 of you guys complain and say that nobody reads his wall of text...yet all 4 of you respond to his comment. Why not just put him on ignore or just don't hit the reply button? You guys are acting like the Open zone is the same area as the Gamer Zone. It's the open zone for a reason. Why should Sony Fanboys be allowed to talk the same sh1t he does but its ok and they have 7+ bubbles yet TheTruth has 2 and you guys act like he's the anti-christ? From your responses, it looks like you are sensitive to what he is saying, thus must be Sony Loyalist. Why do you guys get so defensive if he is only talking sh1t...could it be that deep down inside each of you, you know that he's right cause you have either seen those comments made by Sony Fanboys (cause i have seen those quotes by Sony Fanboys) or you yourselves have made those exact same comments? Grow some balls and stop being so sensitive in the OPEN ZONE.
Here's Wall of Text part 2 which is also full of nonsense. Same person? Probably.
Darksiders, to be honest. Mass Effect 2 will be taking up my January/February time.
and TheTruth is still taking about sales truly worthless
I agree. Sales=/= quality. MGS4 selling over 4 million units doesn't mean it's a quality game GT5:P selling over 4 million units doesn't mean it's a quality game. GT total sales of 50 million units sold doesn't mean it's a quality franchise. And when God of War sells 5 million or GT5 sells 10 million, that doesn't mean that they are quality games....Right? o_O I for one think those games are quality. Why else would so many people have bought them then?
they forgot to add white knight chronicles. it's coming out in janurary. are they that stupid
Says here it's coming 2nd of February. http://blog.us.playstation....
HAHA ATLEAST PS3 CENTRE IS NOT DELUDED ATM usally they bump up the ps3 games list with games that have no annoucement date . but hey it looks like only mag for you guys this momth (lolgarabge battle field 1943 plays and looks betterand its a psn game LOL).have fun guys
Maybe you should try playing the game since, overall, it's a lot more fun than Battlefield 1943 and looks miles better. But, you don't have a PS3, so that may be impossible anyway.
Darksiders will do Awesome after what I seen of this game its just amazing, then you have M.A.G. yes 256 players playing online and its PS3 Exclusive too 2010 is going to be a freakin monster of a year for Sony. Can't wait for God war 3, Heavy Rain, White Knight Chronicles and Final Fantasy XIII Versus.
reserve for 2 years now ,star ocean is reserved white knight,yuzka3,reconse fate,these comes up feb and march oct is alpha,i think there 2 more i not sure i still waiting for release date tales vesperia for ps3
this is nothing but tha FPS version of any Socom game.And I cant wait until this is released.Im judging this game to Socom:Confrontation and only that game.So dont even mention MW2 and if you is thinking about it STFU because this game NOT for you. M.A.G. is my sleeper game of tha year dont be surprise if this game give God of War 3 and GT5 a run for Game of tha Year.Because like dude said there is ALOT of Socom fans.And what developer made Socom Zipper so you do tha math.Nothing against Slant Six but you didnt create tha Socom series Zipper did.And if it wasnt for this game you wouldnt have even worked on Socom:Confrontation.
aliens vs predtor heavy rain god of war 3 white night chronicles final fantastsy 13 hopefully we hear more about 8 days eyeidentify getaway3 at the e3
While anyone can admit the PS3 has had bumps and bruises in the past, no one can deny the success of it all now. What did everyone keep hearing? "PS3 EXCLUSIVES WILL FLOP" "PS3 EXCLUSIVES WON'T BE FUN" Let me pull out the 2009 record for PS3, folks: Killzone 2 was SUPPOSED to be a flop inFamous was SUPPOSED to suck Uncharted 2 was SUPPOSED to be worse than ODST Here's the reality, people. THEY. WEREN'T. Need I add more? I couldn't stop laughing throughout 2009 as I saw constant 360 fanboys rant about games THAT AREN'T ON THEIR SYSTEM. Sad. "This upcoming game won't be good." "Wait, this one won't be good." "No, this one." "This one." The time for excuses has passed, and the folks who helped close that once large gap between 360 and PS3 should open those swollen eyes of the beaten fanboys. The 360 was once the next generation flag boy. What's happening now? The Wii is the flag boy for family fun The PS3 is the flag boy for AAA titles What is the 360? A Halo Player? "What else can we bash the PS3 for?" "No clue, everything we've tried is irrelevant" "Hmmm... How about we boast multiplatform games?" "What is that gonna do? Exclusives are what matters." "Well, we can boast 360 exclusive sales." "One problem. The only 360 exclusives that sold 3 million or more are Halo and Gears. Even then, PS3 exclusive can reach that" "Yes, but they reach that number a week longer than ours!" ".... so?" Ladies and Gentlemen. Open your eyes. Reality hurts.
TheReality2010 of 360= only generic games... hey mods take a note, duplicate acount of thetruth2009 and the realityof2010
that thetruth is a lier in his full form(his corm)....lame
Nothing here that looks interesting to me. I wish MAG was my kind of game, but sadly it isn't.
same here, i mean no offense, but the game just feels out of sync. its laggy, buggy and too clutter. i assume they were thinking of the numbers game and not so much of infrastructure which makes a game fun. in my personal opinion, mag is not a fun game at all, and its probably the last thing i would play. seriously. what sony and co, need to do is make a ps3 syphon filter with killzone 2 graphics and physics. also think about bringing back some old franchises, like sly, jak and daxter, twisted metal, legend of dragoon, wild arms, getaway, omega boost, arc the lad, dark cloud ect. and an actually full fledge socom game with the budget of killzone 2, you know killer graphics, physics and controls. as well as solid campaign with a 4 or 5 player co-op missions and ofcourse a refined and well tuned multiplayer online experience. for get the numbers game (trust me on this one take my word) just give me a simple party/clan up system with a fair amount of players. namely no more than 16 players a match preferably 12. nice and decent sized maps with decent server support. that above is what i really want.
God of war 3 of course,Granturismo 5, the last guardian, yakuza 3, modnation racers, heavy rain, resistance 3, white knight chronicles, agent, and halo reach.... well? if killzone 3, infamous 2 and final fantasy versus 13 comes out this year than i would add those to my list as well. but...those arent coming this year. im also looking forward to david jeffe's game. hopefully its a twisted metal and a ps3 syphon filter wouldn't hurt either.
got plenty to eat through and need to save up for a lot of other games. I'll get Bayo at some point, but thats about it =/ still, a great start for the year =D
Bayonetta and MAG I will get and people have been recommending Darksidsers a lot too!
GOW3 FF13 Bioshock 2 Dante's Inferno Mass Effect 2 Splinter Cell Conviction Darksiders Bayonetta Battlefield Bad Company 2 Dark Void Army of 2 40th Day AVP
Mass Effect 2 alone destroys that entire list, and almost the entire 2010 lineup for the PS3 on its own. 01/26/2010!
you do know final fantasy has a big following then mass effect thought to let you know i wont metion gran tursimo that bigger than halo forza gears put together plus mass effect gt5 and god of war will be the biggest this year and maybe final fantasy vs 13 on ps3
What is the Mass Effect? I only heard about it 2 weeks ago o_O
i heard somewhere that its actually gonna have a releace date
This is what my Amazon.com pre-order says for the PS3 Heavy Rain. This item will be released on December 31, 2011. That's funny I don't think they have even started the game yet! Cross that one off you list for this year. Nothing for me on the PS3 so far, I guess I will be playing Mass Effect 2 on my 360.
I loved how at the bottom of the article the bit about picking darksiders over bayonettaeven tho bayonetta has scored higher in the INDEPENDANT reviews, the gimped version certianly has ruffled a few feathers. On another point, each and everyone of those games pale in comparsion to mass effect 2
Bayonetta...I saw that game at WallMart 2 days ago! before the release date~
GT5 bigger than halo, gears and forza!? Just because a game is taking FAR too long to make, doesnt mean its going to be good, all the hype is making thousands of people suddenly become gt fans, many of which have never owned let alone played the damn game before. If its anything like the prologue then i dont understand how its going to better forza. i at least want some kind of customization, otherwise all we have is 10 red Bugatti's all racing side by side. How exiting. I think sales figures will speak for themselves. i do not think the demo's i have seen can justify the dev time.
