With the PlayStation 3 on a crushing momentum, what does the Xbox 360 have to offer in the upcoming months? Well, you would be surprise to learn that they have a strong lineup just around the corner.
It's a great lineup to my eyes but I'm not going to lie I would of liked for Microsoft to bring more variety.
Needs more Earth Defence Force.
I dont know if you're saying this in a sarcastic way but earth defense force is a really good arcade game. get a friend to play with you put the difficulty level to it's highest and try to finish the game. Great times.
That lineup is extremely aesthetically pleasing. But is a bit on the lacking side as I'll only be picking up 3 titles on that list, Halo: Reach, Alan Wake, and Splinter Cell: Conviction. However, I'm going to wait for E3, to see what else we'll be getting this year before I start grumbling about this year's selection of games. And I really don't think Crackdown 2's going to do all that much, I mean it's extremely fun and all, but it would have needed a fresh coat of graphical paint to really put a "dent" in the competition.
No, I seriously MEAN Needs MORE Earth Defence Force. I detected your sarcasm though... http://www.youtube.com/watc... Just to show what a fan I am. Crackdown and EDF2017, best exclusive games on 360.
Earth's Defense Force would be awesome. I just hope they take out the slowdown and let there online co-op.
More variety? You must want a little more Fable type games. Besides that what else is there to want?
@Clizzz - Yeah I feel exactly the same, looking forward to Splinter Cell, Alan Wake, and will probably get Halo Reach but I'm completely unhyped for it. Nothing else really interests me, maybe portal 2, but dunno if that is worth buying for full price, also it will be cheaper on PC.
I think Microsoft needs to add a couple of more First/Third Person Shooters to the list. They seem to be lacking.
@Cajun Chicken It is nice to hear people mention Earth Defense Force. Had a lot of fun with that game.
@zeeshan "I am sorry but that is one small disappointing list. Compare that with what Sony has already delivered in the first quarter of 2010" You got to be kidding ... or sarcastic? Sony has released all their big games for the first half of 2010, what remains? Releases were badly planed from Sony, leaving 3 months (April, May, June) with nothing exclusive to release... or ... do you expect modnation racers to be a great game, or big release for Sony? Tried the beta, gameplay was crap. X360 console biggest exclusives for the first half of 2010: Mass Effect 2, Alan Wake, Splinter Cell, Crackdown 2. PS3 console biggest exclusives for the first half of 2010: MAG, Heavy Rain, God of War 3.
@lelo - if you think that Gt5 isn't a big game you are stupid as it is arguably even bigger than Halo. Also The Last Guardian is the sequel to possibly the best game last gen, and that doesn't mean that's all that's coming. Sony were very smart investing in first party studios, it's started to reap rewards since february last year.
I'm not sure the 360 needs to settle the score. They do need more variety, but what they have is strong. And, without any sarcasm at all, would also love to have more Earth Defense Force.
@gaffyh "if you think that Gt5 isn't a big game you are stupid as it is arguably even bigger than Halo. Also The Last Guardian is the sequel to possibly the best game last gen, and that doesn't mean that's all that's coming." Did you even read or understand my comment? I SAID THE FIRST HALF OF 2010. Are GT5 or The Last Guardian being released in the first half of 2010? They will probably be great games but are not going to be released in the first half of 2010, besides, The Last Guardian will most likely be released in 2011. For the next 3 months Sony has nothing exclusive worth having. That's why i said Sony had badly planed the releases of their exclusives for the first half of 2010.
What about Brute Force and Too Human Two were't they planed as trilogies?
@lelo - Yes I DID read your comment, and I quote, "Sony has released all their big games for the first half of 2010, what remains?" I just told you what remains, GT5 (HUGE game, Sony's BIGGEST 1st party title in terms of sales) and The Last Guardian (SOTC sequel, one of, if not the best game last gen). On top of that, there is ModNation as you mentioned, as well as 3D Dot Game Heroes, Trinity Universe, most likely Resistance 3. Also less likely, but possible, Agent (doubt it), and FF14 (not really exclusive though). Still, I'm getting GT5, The Last Guardian, and Resistance 3 definitely from them. I'd like to also get ModNation Racers and 3D Dot Game Heroes if I can afford it.
So there is your answer.. Mod nation Racers then 3d Dot Heroes so expect to see 2 more games to score 8+ meta critic. And Jack Trenton just said on GTTV that "we have alot to talk about at E3. My guess is they have some stuff for fall that will blow us away. Socom and GT are huge as it is.
As a PS3 fan I find this year's lineup for 360 by far the best one the had. I think both SC and Alan Wake looks extremely good. Its the first time I'm actually excited for 360 exclusives (and I'm being totally honest here). I'm a huge MGS fan (hence PS3 fan) and SC is definitively my type, and I'm huge on single-player games so Alan Wake looks to be big on that. I couldn't care less about the Gears Of War, Halo, Lost Planet, Crackdown, second-class JRPGs etc and even Mass Effect although this is more because I'm not into Sci-Fi, in fact it's a turn-off (had it had any other type of setting I'd be very interested).
MAG sold horribly, WKC sold worse, Heavy Rain released at #10 NPD, so wtf is this guy talking about? Mass Effect 2, Splinter Cell:Conviction, Alan Wake, Crackdown 2, & the big unstoppable BANG: Halo:Reach, will show what momentum is all about! 1 true great game in Gow3 with nothing to follow isn't a display of momentum, its a display of 1 game.
I would actually really, really like to see sequels to Rallisport Challenge and Crimson Skies on 360...
Not gonna lie, was expecting more.
Dont know why the didnt put Fable 3 down for Aug. Unless its delayed that the release date they gave it.
The 360 doesn't need to settle any score. The lineup for the 360 is great and well planned by Microsoft. Thank the lord that the lineup for the 360 wasn't so bad as 09.
In other words, it is good to see Sony becoming such a competitor. Competition will push both Msoft and Sony to their absolute best, benefiting the consumer. Game on.
First, people need to stop worrying about what's exclusive and if there is a score to settle. I'm up for Halo: Reach and Blur as my games to watch right now. Second, the rest of the year, for me at least, has been eaten by Halo: Reach after hearing about the multiplayer features. It's Sony's turn to step up. I don't doubt they can... I just need to see what games they have in mind for Move. Third, GT5 is a graphics whore's dream. Not much more. That's why I'll be playing Blur... a game that's actually fun and not so up its own ass about being realistic...
What Score? xbox360 doesn't need to prove anything. Every xbox360 game sells and put's plenty of $$$ in developers pocket's because they can rely on xbox360 owners to purchase a game. u won't see xbox360 developers jumping to work on ps3 but u can guarantee ps3 developers are getting wary and will make the jump and start making games for xbox360. All these games will sell: 1. Halo Reach 2. Splinter Cell: Conviction 3. Alan Wake 4. Crack Down 2 5. Fable 3 All of these games are gonna set new world records in SALES u can't say the same for ps3 games sadly just take a look at GOW3 it hasn't even sold a Million embarrassing at least.
And me being a gamer who plays video games what do you think I'm more interested in? Sales Games On my personal level it's the games and their quality.
Alan Wake: flop - http://www.metacritic.com/s... Crackdown: flop - http://www.metacritic.com/g... Fable 1/2: flop - http://www.metacritic.com/s... Splinter Cell: Conviction: a multiplat. will pirate the superior version and play on my pirated copy of Windows XP Halo: Reach: Another year, another Halo. Sad.
the bots can play on their deformed PC called a 3shltty
As impressive as the new Graphical Engine is, the new Halo Reach game looks a little too familiar...kinda like the same Halo we've all been playing for years with a few more new tweeks. And the story mode is a non-factor for me; first and foremost this is a MP experience. The story has never been a strength. Not sure if Crackdown warranted a sequel. The first one was just O.K. but it didn't really excel in any particular way. This looks to be the case with the sequel, looks like a glorified expansion pack.
Debbuble for you.. oh wait..
Microsoft cannot claim anything made by VALVe (portal,l4d series,ect) exclusive because going by their rules they are PC exclusives those are pc games ported to the 360. I do not care about the other games but they cannot claim L4d series and portal and all other valve products xbox exclusive they are not even Xbox games they are PC games ported to xbox.
@DJexs: 360/PC exclusive-but-not-really... Ah, the one hastily constructed peg-leg some Sony droids are miraculously still hopping around on. I could just kick at that leg by pointing out how so many of these games are PS3 excludED and be done with it. If you want to play in on a PC, congratulations... you will very likely be playing it on a Microsoft Windows operating system. Either way, you are supporting Microsoft. If this is all you have to say, you are grasping at straws and it's getting pathetic. Talk about God of War 3. Talk about Move. Talk about GT5. Just talk about something with some actual substance for a change, you snarky little ****.
i'm noticing a lack of tits. i mean sony has given us 2 exclusives with tits... just saying.
Rofl, bubbles for you my friend.
I'm pretty sure they do, but they will never tell.
LOL @ settle the score. The character models in SC:C don't look as good as UC1. The gameplay however, was interesting. Even with the VATS-esque easy kill tag system, I liked Sam's mission being one of vengeance. All the other titles (with the exception of Halo) are a coin toss imo.
lol at blocky lego men. Enjoyed the SC:C demo though. Looking forward to Alan Wake too.
But you are the one that started the trashtalk, cant you even follow your own conversations ? Action Bastard just stated in a quite civilised way that Uncharted looks better the SC:C which the gaming world would agree with. Alas your time is all taken up being part of the bell-end world to be part of the gaming world... its good though, you should try it.
Unlike you I actually own both consoles and I just played the splinter cell conviction demo and no way does it look better than uncharted 1. You can be in denial all you want but on my 52 inch Bravia. Their is a big diferrence in quality. The game may be good but it's not a technical marvel. It doesn't even run in HD so you are the one with the goggles on not anyone else.
Lol, he says Uncharted 2 isn't out of the ordinary, and uses the old friends PS3 story. Definition of a fanboy.
Ahem! From Foxgod's first comment in this tree: "Go away, Uncharted 1 is one of the ugliest next gen games i have seen." Even in the realm of opinion, it's wrong because we can name a million other games this gen across all the systems that looks a HELL of a lot worse that Uncharted. Anyone who's actually PLAYED it can tell you otherwise. Anyone who's played UC2 would tell you the exact opposite of what Foxgod thought about it. No, it wasn't wise on Pennywise (no pun intended) to phrase it like that, but that still doesn't take away how uncreditable Foxgod's "opinion" was. And what's with the common element of putting all PS3 "fanboys" in a box and somehow claiming that there somehow worse that any other fanboy? I'm still wondering how we got to that point.
Let me take things a step further.........It all boils down to the FACT that the XBOX 360 hardware is outdated. It uses DVDs and the Arcade doesn't come with a hard drive, plus it uses an outdated IBM Xenon processor, which is why you will never have a game on the 360 that looks anywhere near as good as Uncharted: Drakes Fortune. Just look at how SquareEnix had to dumb down FF13 to work properly on the 360. Its simply not technically possible for a game to look better on the 360 if the devs max out the hardware. Comparing the 360 to the PS3 is like comparing PS2 graphics to the original XBOX.

That is plain mean. Mass Effect 2 is supposed to look extremely awesome compared to old games. You can't compare flat, boring, indoor areas to lush, jungle locales. Show the Mass Effect 2 pics where they're out in the beautiful world!
Great games, but nothing for the holidays, MS never had a holiday without new games, they must have something up their sleeves. E3 cant come soon enough!
Like 09? lol
Ouch, Jedward. I'm sure you hurt a couple of folks' feelings with that one.
Well, thank God some of us have thicker skin that you ehh Mooey?
Have all platforms...PS3 has nothing for me so far...Buy all multi-plats on 360...PS3 controller and the PS3 OS the worst in gaming...sad, but true... Only KZ3 can save this year on the PS3 for me...Shiny black box ( EXSPENSIVE black box ) great bookend and dust collector...Sad really... Can't wait for SC Conviction( the demo walk through Ubisoft released was AMAZING, up on Gamersyde ) Allan Wake, may rent Metro...Sony has really screw up this year...Free online and 2 games with no on line...WTF... Holidays packed this yr UNLESS games are delayed...Ghost recon, COD WAW, Fable3, all the move/natal stuff and Halo Reach of course...tho not official, I hope KZ3...( yes, I said it again )....
Should i flip what you said, go back in the past, and bring up Sony's awesome years of game releases? Wake up loser. How old are you?
The Splinter Cell demo left me underwhelmed and disappointed so I'm not buying, Crackdown 2 doesn't come with the Halo Reach beta so I doubt many people will buy it, but Alan Wake does look interesting so it might sell.
You do realize Crackdown was a pretty good game. Yeah you can contribute a portion of their sales to the Halo 3 beta but it was still a good game and would have sold well on its own.
What 360 exclusives don't sell?
But since it was packed with a Halo 3 beta and it was bought in many cases solely for that beta, regardless if it's good or not, you can't really say "It would have sold well". Plenty of good games haven't. And MS never let it stand on it's own merits.

@Al Bundy In other words, if there isn't a crosshair in it, it doesn't sell well. Gotcha.
Ha! Put some numbers beside those...
+ You're in the movies.
I would definitely say that MS has more exclusives I am interested in overall but we will have to see because I wouldn't be surprised if Sony surprises us with something other than GT5 by the end of the year.
about Splinter Cell and Crackdown, Alan Wake seems meh, but I think the PS3 has more polished exclusive awesome gaming experiences (not talking about graphics, but fun).
I still miss one big shooter release for the year - other than Socom4 - which I think IS a big game for this year (I would rather guess Resistance 3 end of the year and KZ3 2011).
everyone knows that 360 is not capable of making games that are even close to being as good as PS3 games. xbox360 is only good for its netflix. which is coming to ps3 so yea
this new 360 games are suppose to beat uncharted 2?heavy rain???God of war 3?infamous?little big planet?MGS4? and upcoming ps3 titles..lol what a joke??wtf is alan quake????and R u serious aNother halo when will this die???i bought halo odst and it was the same crap like im seriously being honest..this games are not worthy of buying ..but ehh if xbox fans wanna play another halo and another one in 2015 is there choice.im aiming for the future
We already know what Sony's long list is an the only system seller on the list of those games is Halo Reach, looks better then Halo 3 and seems to have a new gameplay style. I haven't seen any reason for people to be hype for Crackdown 2, it only did good because everyone wanted the Halo 3 Beta an not the game itself, not that is bad but really it or Halo? Halo wins. Alan Wake looks to be ok, but it seems to simple in someways, I would like to know if I could take a cop car an play threw most of the game using it to fight the darkness (Cop cars have alot of light support lol) but it looks to be a ok game but not a system seller like Halo. Like I said only Halo is going to be what helps the 360, now if E3 they bring out Gears 3 or something like that. That would help sell systems.
People don't think Halo is a system seller? or do they think all of those games are system sellers? Hard to tell when most of the dumb people that disagree and not say why. Its simple, look at how many copys Halo has sold Vs most of the titles list, an add Gears into that and we got two titles that could sell more then MW2 did.
Does it really matter whats going to settle the score or not? What really matters is that we are winning look at the games we have to look forward to on ps3 and 360. At the end it's us gamers who will be enjoying ourselves for many many many hours :) Gotta love the disagree button :) sorry fanboys for saying multiconsole owners are the real winners :)
