Things are looking up for Microsoft's console. After a fairly tepid 2009, many had predicted that the Xbox 360 had peaked, but with a line-up this strong, plus Project Natal, it's looking like Microsoft's year.
No 360 games will own e3 they got no games.
my god the tears your supplying today are just outstanding. gawd i cant stoppin lapping them up.more jedward more..delicious!!!
Why people keep saying X console has no games? I guess Halo: Reach is made-up. Gears 3 was never revealed on Jimmy Fallon. And that game the ps3 fanboys were bashing because a forum says it was "547p" (which is not true) wasn't real. Yep 360 has no games. Edit: I got disagrees and I'm pro ps3, wth?
If you call(360 has no games), what is it then?
Reach, this game will own
Can't wait to see more of Reach's Single player. This game has so much riding on it and it's bound to be the hugest MP game of the generation since Halo 3. MS needs to announce some new IPs though. As great as Gears, Fable, and Halo is I'd like to see something fresh.
Agreed. Reach will be the GAME of E3 quite simply. THe game will easily sell 10 million. Edit: I forgot about GT5 though. Hopefully we will see more of that.
Bungie presents: Halo... Crowd goes: WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Bungie says: Owned. Lol
You're right, Reach will own. The game looks simply amazing. Fable III? I'll have to wait and see. I wasn't very impressed with the others. It needs a major overhaul in the graphics and it needs to be deeper as an RPG. The simplicity of Fable II was boring to me. Crackdown 2? Loved the first one but this looks like Crackdown 1.5. Good but will it offer enough to call it a true sequel? X-COM? One of my favorite games ever was UFO Defense. Amazing game. Hopefully they can keep that intensity and not just make a FPS out of the IP. Gears of War 3? Not very hyped about it. I find the series to be much like the Transformers movies. Lots of flash and noise but not much substance. I hope we get to see a new Project Gotham racer. I also want to see something exceptional from Rare.
Looking forward to ALL the gaming stuff coming out...M$ having a big year with huge games...Wii and PS3, no doubt, will have some good games as well...I hope...E3 in June...
MS also had ME2 this year and still have Alan Wake. Both those games are AAA and they arent Gears, Halo, or Fable. I agree though we need some other IPs.
Disagrees? Ha. Don't people know that the name 'Halo' is the Mario of Microsoft. Name brand people. Name brand.
I don't understand this place, why would anyone disagree with this comment? "Looking forward to ALL the gaming stuff coming out...M$ having a big year with huge games...Wii and PS3, no doubt, will have some good games as well...I hope...E3 in June... " I'm going to have to agree with it myself.
"2K has just announced this long-rumoured update of the classic name, but in a surprising move, it's not a strategy game but an RTS." I'm pretty sure it's an FPS. Also, they didn't name Portal 2. It's also coming to PC, but then so's X-COM.
Gears of War 3. I simply can't wait. Microsoft's gonna have a great E3. By the Way, I'm getting F***ing sick of PS3 Fanboy's disagreeing, go to your own section of the site.
Halo Reach was the nail in ps3 coffin
like halo 3 or ODST or halo wars oh..... yea---
Like this game or that game will be a "Halo killer". No exclusive will have the pop culture impact that Halo does, sorry. GTA and Modern Warfare are the only other games that are comparable to Halo in that department.
Cool! 2 games! Reach and Crackdown 2 and a timed exclusive, excellent.
later is going to be five ps3 games to own e3 watch n4g is like that
Yeah, don't know where people get off calling the 360 a shooter console...
1. Call 360 a shooter console 2. Refuse to buy all the JRPGs, platformers, racing games, sports games, and XBLA games that the 360 has to offer. 3. Watch as all of these games fail miserably in the sales department. 4. Continue to call the 360 a shooter console, and grin that blissfully ignorant grin.
Since when is crackdown a shooter? Is GTA a shooter as well? Besides, Arent Resistance, Uncharted and killzone shooters?
Well I think it's clear that 360 owners (in general)are into their shooters. I don't see how that's a bad thing though, not particularly a good thing either. It just is, what it is. I'm more of an RPG person myself though.
Shooters are great, as long as they vary. Halo is a classical shooter, while Gears is a TPS that is mostly about covering. X-Com i supposed to be a tactical shooter like rainbow six, but in the xcom universe instead. Plenty of variety, keeps the genre fresh and interesting. Thats why Xbox fans are not so high on Killzone 2 and Resistance, to us those are just games that play like halo, and we already got a halo.
One quote was found that the 360 is a shooter's console not based on the games... only but based on the controller, too. But most of the games such as Halo and Gears (shooters) are what has been selling best on the 360 console. Put halo and gears on the ps3 and it won't sell as much, imo because 360 is the preferred console for shooters. Just Look at the numbers.
The 360 may be a console that shooter fans prefer the most, and it may also have more shooter games than PS3, but the 360 has as diverse a gaming library as the PS3 does. So, the 360 is any console the owner wants it to be. I have played more RPGs on my 360 than shooters, and so I don't consider the 360 just a shooter console. There are plenty of JRPGs on the 360, plenty of WRPGs, plenty of racing games like Burnout and Forza, plenty of XBLXA games and more on the way. It's an insult to Microsoft's efforts to still call the 360 just a shooter console.
@ foxgod: So you painted Killzone 2 and Resistance in the light of Halo? Even though those games are nothing like Halo, I see what you're getting at. Something tells me that if these games were Multi-platform or XBox exclusive you'd have a different tune, just observation. And you do know that Crackdown is a shooter right? It's genres are TPS/Sandbox.
True, I was just given out some reasons to foxgod why we or people would call it the shooter's console. To me tho I would name it the 'Shooter's console' because of games like Halo, Gears do really well on the 360 also because I would prefer the 360 controller to any FPS/TPS but that's just me, imo.
i think Forza 2 (a racer) is like the 5th best selling game on xbox. and i could care less about sales. 360s got those games, just not as many people buy them.
GTA/Crackdown are sandbox shooters. You explore and you shoot things. Doesn't matter if perspective is 1st 3rd or overhead, the main game style is shooting things. This applies to UC2, KZ2 and Resistance. The thing is that the PS3 is known for LBP, GOW and Demon's Souls. In other words its known for things other than games where you shoot things.
Oh, I get it. With PS3 you can also stab people with knives or slash at them with swords. I see now where the variety argument comes from. /s.
Yeah and 360 is known for RTS games, Fable, Blue dragon, Lost Odessey, Viva Pinata, Kameo, Banjo, Ninja Blade, Kudo and many other non shooter games. I'm willing to bet PS3 has a higher percentage of shooters than 360 with way less games on the market.
"Yeah and 360 is known for RTS games, Fable, Blue dragon, Lost Odessey, Viva Pinata, Kameo, Banjo, Ninja Blade, Kudo and many other non shooter games." You are 100% wrong. All of those games you highlighted are niche games to the large majority of Xbox/360 gamers. They barely sold any copies in relation to the shooter games. They were mostly less than well received for one reason or many others. If you ask a person that does not frequent gaming forums but plays video games (trust me. millions of people fall under that category) they will more than likely not know 90% of those games. And if they know of them, they don't care about them.
NO I'm not 100 percent wrong! I agree these are not games (other than fable) that don't really represent the name of 360 but Disagree if you or anybody believes 360 has nothing but shooters.
I'm not saying that the 360 has only shooters. I was pointing out that while there are obviously games not of the shooter variety on the 360, the 360 is known most for the shooters. The best known games on the 360 are Halo and Gears of War. The games you listed are not known by most of the general public.
Halo and Gears will surely be MS talk of E3 idk about rest. Crackdown lets be serious every1 who bought crackdown was only because it had halo3 beta in it and only way this 1 will do good if they put the reach beta in it. I remember when it came out and I had friends who bought the game but didnt even play it and just waited for halo beta to unlock. Id be curious about the XCom thing though and fable3 should be ok. Sony I think have much more to show though Rockstars game Socom4 GT5 a couple MMOs FF13 versus Twisted Metal w/e Insomniac is cooking, The last guardian and if we will get a KZ3 teaser is still to be unknown.
and i wana see if its gona be natal enabled and hopefully there better be a beta for gears. halo reach gona be awesome hmmm wat else fable 3 i hope i can go somewhere else besides albion the whole time but fable 2 a solid game though.
Yeah, sure it'll have Natal features, like the duck and cover recognition system that you'll be able to hide behind your sofa as you shoot behind chest high walls in the game, awesome.
I think GT5 will own and follow Reach. GT5 is big among PS gamers and Halo is big among Xbox gamers. So, it think GT5 will own all the games in 2010 if the game come out in 2010 if not than Reach will own 2010 qua sell nummbers.
GT doesnt sell as fast as Halo does. GT got long legs, has a nice start, and then continues to sell steadily (based on sales from previous GT's). Halo on the other hand, sells 60% of its total sales in the first couple of weeks. Dont forget that Halo 3 moved millions on day one.
Fox. They sell both very well, but at the moment the 360 has bigger user base than PS3. Maybe you are right, but i have my doubts because i will not underestimate GT5 ;)
Halo also has long legs and when you think about it GT5 may just meet it's match finally when they both collide hopefully this fall.If there were 75 million PS3's sold over 40 360's I could see GT5 winning hands down.
Neither do i, and i dont doubt that GT will top the 10 million, i just dont see it reaching that faster then Reach :)
could you imagine the publicity it would generate if they decided to release gt5 the same day as halo reach?
Don't forget, GT5 will move consoles. Not just copies of Reach by people who already bought Halo 3. Unless their consoles RRoDed of course...:p
How do you know that Reach looks amazing? i did not see a single gameplay from Reach, so i cannot answer that. Very strange that you have see the gameplay from Reach, give me some a link of the gameplay from Halo Reach. I did well see the pictures, and looks better than Halo 3.
Here you go: http://www.gametrailers.com... It's all on the multiplayer since the beta is coming soon but they will show the single player campaign at E3. Looks good to me.
Right now there are about 5 XBLA games on my radar along with huge games like Reach, Fable3, Crackdown2(which looks awesome), GEOW3 and Xcom. Something tells me MS is about to announce many more games at E3 and surprise many with there lineup.
Gears of war 3, this is also a big title who cannot ignore. Reach will dominate at E3 for 360 games close follow by Gears of war 3.
2010 = My most anticipated E3 ever. All consoles will own in some type of fashion. All I care about is 360 but will admit I look forward to seeing what Sony has in store as well. KZ3 could be the game that makes a huge impact on E3 for Sony.
I do want to see what KZ3 tho. Besides KZ2 looks amazing imagine KZ3 and if they do, please GG DON'T CHANGE THE CONTROLS DON'T!!! DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES CHANGE IT BECAUSE SOME FANBOYS SAY CHANGE IT DONT LISTEN TO THEM!!! EVEEER!!
they will change the controls. i know some ppl like it, but that was that game's biggest draw back. i'm sure the online kz2 community woulda been much bigger if the controls were more solid. what they could do (but probably won't) is offer both options. revamped controls or old ones. I tell you what i hope kz3 does better...environment interaction. i know some scripted areas had things that would break when you hit them, but i'd really like to see something more dynamic. oh, and i predict that sony will feel like they need to bring out something bigger for e3, and i have this feeling they are going to jump the gun on the uncharted 3 announcement.
Gears 3 above Reach? no way
Don't forget, Rare has 4 projects incoming as well as Spawnpoint, a new studio formed not too long ago. Also, Itagaki San is back with a new game that might show up at E3. There will be great gaming announcement at E3. I expectanother game or two will be added to the Fall lineup with Reach and Fable. "Gears 3 above Reach? no way " Both games are like Shaq and Kobe from the Lakers Dynasty. They are the best at their respective position and yet no one can say which one is more valuable than the other. Glad both of these 2 megafranchises are on X360.
i can see why they picked gears 3 over reach. gears 3 is a real one while reach isnt't halo 4.
I agree with Gillri though. I'm not saying one is going to be better, but Halo Reach will be out sooner and if people like whats in the beta, which they probable will, people will be going nuts. Plus I'm sure they will have Reach at E3 to play. I also think that Reach will sell better and come on, Halo = Xbox. Its not a bad thing by any means and its not like the other games are small and insignificant, but it is in my opinion, the biggest franchise on the 360 is halo.
Alan Wake Fable 3 Gran Turismo 5 Halo Reach Resistance 3/Killzone 3 Red Dead Redemption Fallout 3: New Vegas 3d Dot Game Heros Mod Nation Racers Socom 4 Thats a heck of a list if you ask me lol Both Sides will have a great E3, i will probably need to increase the list a bit after then haha Edit: Oh damn i forgot some of the games that you mentioned haha Lost Planet 2 Dead Rising 2 Last Guardion (didn't think it was out this year?) All i know i will be getting an xbox when natal launches as the price will drop and i will pick up as many games as i can afford for it, i am really really REALLY looking forward to getting an xbox for Alan Wake, that game looks like crack, but will wait a few more months to see how the prices get changed this holiday :) you also have great tastes in games
Here is my list: Alan Wake SSF4 Red Dead Redemption Lost Planet 2 Split Second Prince of Persia Crackdown 2 Dead Rising 2 Fable 3 Halo Reach Killzone 2/Resistance 3 Fallout: New Vegas Ghost Recon Future Soldier Medal of Honor Last Guardian And whatever is left from E3.
i listed great games on both platforms. Unless it was a nintendo fanboy, fine i will be getting SMG2 happy now :P
looking forward to the games but i am more interested in the surprises we don't about.
I have no idea what else MS could announce, a new PGR game, and a Rare game, but i have lost faith in Rare so meh to them. I reckon MS have played there cards on the table and will show of all footage for their games this year and make a few small anouncemets like their usual DLC crap and the like. MS already has me sold on the console this christmas they just need to price drop and i will get one ASAP While i reckon Sony will have a SC/ME announcement at E3. As well as a the possibilites of heaps of franchises. All they need for me to be happy is a GT5 release date and Starhawk (warhawk 2) and i am over the moon haha.
sirus you are underestimating MS then. E3 changed last year so expect unannounced games from MS. They already said it themselves in a recent podcast. Also there is plenty of potential franchises that can be revealed. Conker,killer instinct,PD2,PGR 5,Bungie's next game,etc
I couldn't care less about a concor game, PGR might be decent but idk what happened to that series, never played a killer instinct title who are they made by? And there are many rumours saying the next bungie game is mulitplatform. Last years E3 was utter crap from MS, what did they announce that was interesting at the time? Nothing utter crap, like almost all their exclusives last year, nothing was good about last year. Very lack luster, and this year at E3 will be better but it will be less announcement more shocks through gameplay and videos . They will announce heaps of natal games which are all unnanounced thats what they are refering to i reckon. Again i think MS is going to have a great year but i do beleive they don't have much left to announce in the hardcore front. All i want is a price drop on the PRO and i will be super happy. Oh and it's Sitris :P Edit: Rare is far from there forma glory, they sat among the kings of gaming and now they have fallen.
halo reach then everything is multiplatforms games while ps3 goes on and gets agent exclusive gt5 final fantasy vs 13 the last guardian infamous 2 hopefully getaway 3 and eight days will be announced exclusive to the ps3 and eyeidentify eyepet 2 killzone 3 rfom 3 motorstorm all heading towards the ps3 plus ps3 will have move on hand where natal is a copy cat of the eyetoy which was done 8 years ago and they will all multiplatform games no 1st and 2 party studios pathetic
last year was great for MS. pretty much everyone from the press agreed that MS won it. there was 4-6 titles that we didn't know about. Also Bungie will never go multiplatform,MS has first refusal to every game they make and Bungie knows their fanbase. Most of sony franchises have no identity so i am not interested in the majority of their franchises. MS has more ips that interest me and i think we will see some more at this years E3.
cd2 and fb3?r u fkin kiddin me?ontopic gears3 i am a lil curios about and halo is same old same old.and the other game i kno nothing about so how can they say that?kinda weak list with the exception of gears and halo other ones r not realy that interesting.anyways peace and gaming yall
Not to sound like fanboyism, but wasn't this mentioned by Microsoft for 2008 and 2009... No denying the Xbox 360 has great games, just as the PlayStation 3 does. But seriously...just wait until the end of the year, or in fact, E3 before you make that statement please.
I'm just happy to see MS with a strong line up and also has nothing to do with Natal (thank God). Also glad to see most titles you know actually coming out this year.
