Um, doesnt look like this year for 360 gets good till late September in reality. But of course, thats just a meaningless PR statement anyways lol

anthraxCZ3689d ago

it is all the time the same - 2011 is best year for xbox, but nothing to prove that

tehpees33689d ago

oh its a great year.... if you like kinect :P

Godmars2903689d ago

It s INCREDIBLE for PR statements :P

Active Reload3689d ago

No matter what happens...haterz gon hate...

captain-obvious3689d ago

this just in
weed seals saw a 100% growth this year
if you wonder why is that
because simply MS bought it all
and they are all smoking it right now

Istanbull3689d ago

We are already in march so where's your games Microsoft?

PS3 already got:

DC Universe
Mass Effect 2 Ultimate Edition
LittleBigPlanet 2(GOTY contender)
HyperDImension Neptunia
ArTonelico III
Killzone 3
Splinter Cell HD Trilogy
Dead Space Extraction

Xbox 360: 0

I wouldn't say Gears 3 and Forza Kinect is impressive, its rather pathetic.

nickjkl3689d ago (Edited 3689d ago )

omg WEED SEALS jumped by 100 percent

thats awesome

what do you mean microsoft bough all the weed seals

AntoineDcoolette3689d ago

Not being a dick asking this question.

But does 360 have any serious offerings outside of Gears of War 3 this year?

gaffyh3689d ago

@nick - Everyone knows seals can't jump, that's BS. lol.

MS is doing exactly what they did last year, just keep saying that it's a great year, and have no games till the end of the year. It's ridiculous, the only game I want for the 360 this year is Gears 3 and I was looking forward to it in April, then MS announce it's delayed so that they can have a big game in the holidays.

I absolutely hate delays like that, it would be different if the game actually needed to be delayed!

paintsville3689d ago

Wow 360 is going to continue it's dominating ways right through 2011. 360 games just get better and better. Great online service, awesome developer support, superior hardware in EVERY respect (no Mandatory installs required), ABSOLUTE BEST gaming console performance with unified RAM (not antiquated divided RAM like some nameless ...cough (ps3) consoles), most advanced console GPU on the market, multicore 6 thread powerhouse CPU, and truly innovative technology in Kinect (not a wii copy like some others....cough...ps3 move). It's going to be and always has been AWESOME.

Megaton3689d ago

It's an incredible opportunity for Microsoft's PR people to prove themselves with some incredible spin to convince their users that exclusive games don't matter on a game console.

guigsy3689d ago

@ Istanbull

Dead Space 2? Bulletstorm? Fight Night Champion? All been released on the 360 this year.

Also trying to pass that off as a list of exclusives is pathetic. Splinter Cell Collection? Dead Space Extraction? Don't be daft.

YodaCracker3689d ago (Edited 3689d ago )

Why would these exclusive lists matter to anyone that already has their 360? Maybe there would be an argument to be had for someone who was currently deciding between the two consoles and could only get one, but if you already own a 360 then you have tons and tons of games to play in 2011, be they exclusives, console exclusives, multiplatform titles, Arcade games, Kinect titles, or Indie games.

I myself plan to buy more games for my 360 than any previous year. I already want to play:

-Gears of War 3
-L.A. Noire
-The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
-You Don't Know Jack!
-Dust: An Elysian Tale
-Dead Island
-Modern Warfare 3?
-Assassin's Creed 3?
-Forza Motorsport 4
-Crysis 2
-Mass Effect 3
-Portal 2
-Codename: Kingdoms
-Batman: Arkham City
-Saints Row: The Third
-Driver: San FrancIsco
-Battlefield 3
-Child of Eden
-Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II
-LEGO Star Wars 3: The Clone Wars
-Max Payne 3
-Mortal Kombat
-Red Faction: Armageddon
-Dirt 3
-Ghost Recon: Future Soldier
-Spec Ops: The Line
-The Darkness 2

So my 360 is going to be on more in 2011 than in any prior year. This looks like a truly incredible year and no one said it would be more incredible for the 360 than any other console, so what is the problem here?

For my PS3, I want:

-Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception

And finally, for my Wii I want:

-The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

chriski3333689d ago

Yea not really the only thing 360 has this year is gears 3 that kinda sucks

NukaCola3689d ago

Well in terms of core games, but there is the Crytec game coming Project Kingdoms. I think that MS is going way to damn top-heavy on Kinect, but before I become a total hater, I will wait until E3. I personally have little interest in much before E3 from MS anyway. I get all multiplats on PS3 for the trophies, so I am quite patient.

The Meerkat3689d ago

I'll be too busy with
Dragon Age2,
Duke Nukem,
Portal 2,
Crysis 2,
Gears 3,
a new Call of Duty.

to notice the lack of games.

SoulMisaki3689d ago (Edited 3689d ago )


And everyone with a ps3 will be playing those plus many more.

Well, those who can afford all the great exclusives anyway.

jeseth3689d ago


Outside of Gears, everything "big" on 360 is also on PS3.

I'm sure that will change by the time e3 is over but right now the 360's lineup pales in comparison to PS3's lineup . . . again.

MS needs to stop buying timed DLC and start creating great new IPs of their own.

The Meerkat3689d ago

Everyone has a limiting factor to their gaming enjoyment.

For some its money.
For some its blind fanboyism.

For me its time.

I don't have time for the games I want on the 360 let alone more on a PS3.

Oh and I forgot about Mass Effect 3.

jeseth3689d ago


Instead you have time to make 1300 comments on N4G.

Give us a break with the free time stuff. Pointing out the obvious difference in Sony and MS's game lineup has nothing to do with "blind fanboyism". It's just pointing out what one company is offering their consumers vs. another. And I don't know how you can look at MS right now and say they are really doing much. Kinect is a novel idea, like the Move, but Xbox is a system that has always been about gamers, not soccer moms and having a T/E for everyone rating. They are doing less for the people that got them where they are and more for people who barely buy any games at all.

palaeomerus3689d ago (Edited 3689d ago )

" And everyone with a ps3 will be playing those plus many more. "

I have a PS3 and will be playing some of those on the 360 and probably NONE of them on the PS3 (unless the PS3 version goes on sale for less, or has some exclusives content worth my time. )

" Well, those who can afford all the great exclusives anyway."

Yeah well, I'm probably buying a grand total of TWO of the "great exclusives" (one of which is KZ3 which I already have) and the other is Resistance 3. I'll probably buy Uncharted 3 next year sometime. I'm not too interested in Last Guardian at this point. I don't care at all about Move stuff like Sorcery, or multiplayer mini-game stuff like Move Heroes or Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One. I already have two motorstorm games and don't want another one. SOCOM 4 looks kind of bad...

Honestly, I'd much rather have some of the big multiplats coming out and I'll be getting most of those I do buy on 360. (Because my friends have 360's and I like the controller.) :)

HolyOrangeCows3689d ago

"For me its time"

And even for those who aren't trolls but REALLY don't have time, they'll have the option between those games and the PS3's great lineup of titles. And they can choose the best of the best of both lists.

guigsy3689d ago

"Outside of Gears, everything "big" on 360 is also on PS3"

So what? You say this like it's somehow a problem for us gamers. To my mind there are multiplatform games coming out this year which will best exclusives on any console.

Well Kinect is incredible so i guess thats what they mean /s

Oldsnake0073689d ago

people will not understand your sarcasm if you don't put /sarcasm at the end.

8thnightvolley3689d ago

i am not too fussed myself.. i have alot of backlog and great multiplats games coming so i am not gonna dance and cry for exclusives coz looking at what multiplats are achieving now .. is pretty impressive almost coming close to exclusives or even better than some. e.g crysis2. easily best looking fps on 360 at the moment., with DA2, gears3, kingdoms, and lots more.. plus my busy life at work.. i think i am good.

Jazz41083689d ago

It doesn't matter if you say you have 2 million games your going to play this years and have it be true. The only thing that matters on this site is that your list contains mainly ps3 exclusives then you will get agress and support from your so called gaming friends. On n4g.

malandra3689d ago

only IF you like casual games

Jaces3689d ago

Here we go again with the lies. Thanks MS.

Gamer_Z3689d ago (Edited 3689d ago )

Wow Microsoft and Activision really go hand in hand with raping the casuals Lol shoving Kinect, xbox live and COD down their pie holes, if only they knew. I almost feel bad for them... But this year is looking to be one of the best year's for PC and PS3 with Steam takiing off and BF3 (whooo) and PS3 having one of the best line ups ever!

Just_The_Truth3688d ago

They are stalling i just fail to see how some people bought it in hopes that by the end of 2011 there might be decent games from the second i saw the project natal commercial i was excited but as time went by the the wall of lie crumbled just look at the harry potter kinect video then look at scorcery for the move i'm tired of all the talk of games and feature that may come when there is no gameplay or details. Honestly how can Sony put out a new handheld, 25+ exclusives, battle hackers and LG, update FW and add new features like PS+, rewards programs and PSS and still support the ps2 and psp while MS lays low awaiting the end of the year.

dgonza403688d ago

it COULD be incredible, with the announcement of the new xbox :o

all PS3 fanboys will fear it. only because we wont have any idea on its specs, games, etc.

Microsoft is a money pig

Oldsnake0073689d ago

lol everybody is .

Money rules the world, live with it .

Just_The_Truth3688d ago

true but at least sony lets you upgrade you HDD without buying one from them and they also let you uses any usb chord for charging, and free online plus they were willing to take a loss on the ps3 to deliver a quality prouduct so for me i'd gladly give my money to support that kind of business

Izanagi-no-Okami3689d ago

Do you mean every big company?

kookie3689d ago

Yes but some are more greedy than others

SuicideShaun3689d ago

kookie good ahead and name the company you think isn't a money hog. Just go ahead and say sony. We all know you want to.

ChristianGamer3689d ago

Incredibly lame maybe. Well if you don't play multiplats that is. So far only 1 AAA exclusive has been released on the other camp so we ain't missing much.

Nicaragua3689d ago

your certainly not missing your daily dose of denial juice.

Jazz41083689d ago

And you I see are getting your daily dose of sony can do no wrong. What would you guys do without n4g? Would you even know how to function in the real world? Typicaly I would ecpect posters and banners and print outs all over the house worshiping sony and then basic regular decisions are made by asking ...what would Sony do? You guys don't need help you need professional help. Why live your lives supporting a company that will never pay your bills or take care of your family? This goes for fanboys on both sides but I picked sony because its just about every single comment on here n4g is about. Fanboys suck. Play games and shut the f up about who's better as I could care less and so could the majority of gamers that have a passion for there hobbie not an allegiance.

Nicaragua3689d ago

Nice little rant - utterly fucking irrelevant but nice nonetheless.

To answer your nonsensical questions - what would i do without N4G? Hmmmmm.... I'd probably voice my opinion somewhere else.

Can i function in the real world? Well yes i can but what the cocking batshit this has to do with this discussion is beyond me. Does it remove the validity of my right to comment if the answer is no?

Ive got an idea - your opinion on anything (fanboys or not) is no more valid than mine or anyone elses so if you cant read an opposing opinion without having a soapbox period then you should stop visiting this website.

Heavy_Rain3689d ago

And what AAA multiplat that has been released apart form DS2 Lol. Here is the ratings so far LBP2-92 kz3- 85 MLB 2011 - 91 Surely thats better then the epic fail known as Fable -80 Alanwake- 83 and other useless exclusives last year released for x360. Do you agree those were pathetic games that you dont care about? LMAO

OT : "2011 is incredible for x360"


SuicideShaun3689d ago

Alan wake was awesome. Better than heavy rain.

hellzsupernova3689d ago

@Suicide Shaun noooo you dissed my favourite ps3 exclusive! lol jk thats your opinion i don't think it would be because ive played through heavy rain 8 times honestly i think it is the most incrdible game this gen for me personally. :)

gypsygib3689d ago

I like my PS3 as much as the next guy but there's not a huge difference between KZ3 85 and AW 83. I'd probably give KZ3 a 90 but you can't exactly call the 360 exclusives you mentioned useless.

Pixelated_Army3689d ago (Edited 3689d ago )

@ChristianLamer (lulz)

So far we have GT5, LBP2, KZ3, and soon SOCOM 4, Motorstorm Apocalypse. :P

GodofSackboy3689d ago

What Killzone and LBP2 and MLB I count 3 maybe I'm wrong sorry

palaeomerus3689d ago (Edited 3689d ago )

I didn't want LBP2. I already have LBP1 and it really wasn't that much fun when all was said and done. Adding some new creation features doesn't make me want it. And even if I did I'd wait for the GOTY version with all the little DLC's included anyway.

I don't care about baseball games.

I don't care about ANY sim racers (including Forza and Shift) at all. I really haven't since GT 3 A-Spec.

I already bought Killzone 3.

I'm looking forward to Resistance 3 just to see how it ends.

I will probably wait for a price drop on inFamous 2 since inFamous was good but not the sort of game I want at launch for full price.

The SOCOM 4 footage I've seen just looks pretty weak.

Meanwhile, I'm going nuts waiting for stuff like Brink, Rage, Crysis 2, ESV: Skyrim, Saint's Row 3, Red Faction: Armageddon, 40K Space Marine, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, Hunted: The Demon's Forge, Dark Souls, Batman: Arkham City, Portal 2(might get PS3 version) etc.

I may not even have the money to get Dragon Age 2 right off the bat and am thinking about waiting for a compilation version to come out. I am also going to wait for a price drop on Homefront.

Now what?

ThatCanadianGuy3689d ago

Now what?

Well, for starters.Dude said PS3 had one triple A game, godofsackboy clearly stated the 3 of the highest rated games this year, which happen to be exclusive to PS3.Which, in turn, means they are AAA PS3 exclusives.

Ranting and making excuses how you don't like them doesn't change that fact.
