A Microsoft employee talks about Xbox 360 and its games in 2008.
see how he struggles to name the xbox games. I really hope they have more games for 08 or my xbox will go on sale to pay for ps3 games. I'm not hating on 360 but i really want to see their exclusive offerings. Considering my roomate has a 360 if there arent that many exclusives there really isnt any need to keep one at this point.
I noticed that too. But you can't expect a platform to keep producing highly anticipated games year in, year out. People talk about how great Sony's 2008 lineup will be, but how can 2009 possibly top those releases? It really can't as we're getting the entire lot we've wanted this year. So it seems like every platform will go through a year where, it's hard to call it a disappointment, but it certainly won't be a year to rival or better than a previous one and I feel this is the case with Microsoft. But it's gaining more emphasis on here because 2008 is seen as the year where Sony starts to catch Microsoft's tails in sales. We'll see.
We already can expect Resistance2, GoW3, and a couple more sequels they are working on. I have faith in Sony to keep pumping out hits. The 360 on the other hand is looking very lackluster. 1 or 2 nice looking games that WILL be out on the PC isnt worth it if you had to choose between the consoles. I dont have a 360, but I do have a PC so my gaming needs are taken care of with it and a PS3.
I personally think he was struggling to figure out which games he can talk about, don't wanna slip an unannounced game on video.
Why do I get the feeling your don't even own a 360? and the people backing you up just proves that point. If you like I have a link where they sell troll bridges real cheap, maybe you can get a bargin. Sorry it's just obvious and with 80% of your comments supporting the PS3 doesn't help ether.
He can't be more wrong when he says xbox 360 has something to offer for all different types of gamers. If I was looking for a platformer it's Kameo and a RPG would be Blue Dragon. There is also Banjo and Lost Odyssey but Banjo is only one game and Lost Odyssey is the last exclusive Japanese RPG the 360 has. Since GDC last year Sony has had the best showings in every single conference. MS and HD-DVD group dropped the ball once again in CES 08. And if they had enough great announcements they would have spread a few for CES and a lot for GDC.
should have released halo3 in 2008 when it was ready and at a satisfactory level to bungie,probably why bungie quit microsoft and chose to be independant bungie like to finish their games properly and not be forced to a deadline because microsoft wanted to win xmas 2007 soo badly. 2008 seems to be quite barren for 360 regarding exclusives,2007 was 360s year 2008 ps3s year just a natural evolution.
everyone always complaining that the 360 doesn't have the "exclusives" in '08, that they are "coming to PC." Hate to break it to you, but if your PC couldn't handle Crysis, or even Gears, then you have zero chance of it running any of these new games at a quality level. Also, if you just own both the 360 and the PS3, then you have no problem for '08.
it's hard being a 360 owner in '08... a quick glance at a tentative release schedule shows these are the only games i'll be very interested in buying: Ninja Gaiden 2 (Exclusive, the reason i bought a 360) Devil May Cry 4 Lost Odyssey (Exclusive) Army of Two R6V:2 Gears of War 2 (Most likely Exclusive) Mercs 2: world in flames Star Wars: Force Unleashed Grand Theft Auto IV Splinter Cell Conviction (Exclusive) Tom Clancy's Endwar Fracture Fable 2 (Exclusive) Fallout 3 Prototype Too Human (Exclusive) Tiberium Borderlands Backbreaker Gothic 4 Soul Calibur IV Possibly in 2008: Marvel Online Universe (Exclusive) Possibly Alan wake (Exclusive) Warhound how will i ever pass the time...
Confirmed exclusives - Kingdom Under Fire: Circle of Doom - Lost Odyssey - Too Human - Splinter Cell Conviction - Alan Wake - Halo Wars - Ninja Gaiden II - Fable 2 - Banjo Threeie - Infinite Undiscovery - GTA pack#1 - GTA pack#2 - Culdcept Saga Exclusives between 360/PC - Left4Dead - Huxley - Elveon - StarCraft 2 - Sacred 2: Fallen Angel - World in Conflict Things that will come: - APB - Marvel Online - CryOn - P. Jackson's Halo Project - Castle Wolfenstein - Dead or Alive Code: Cronus - Quake Arena Arcade - Lionhead Project#2 - Gears 2/3 - Mass Effect 2/3 - Kingdom Under Fire (follow up to strategic Xbox games) And consider the many big games Xbox360 users will enjoy in common with PS3 like GTA4, RE5, SilentHill5, DMC4, Lost Planet 2, The Remenant, Fallout 3, Soul Calibur 4, Condemned 2, all EA's stuff, ...
It's not every year you will have TOP Blockbusters in your lineup. I think you have to have just enough Grabe a-b titles to keep the fans interested, as well as bring newcomers on the console. A lot of the top Games for one year, if they are new IP's, we will see the Sequals 2 year later, and the 360 already have that following for some of these games. just as the Ps3 will have MGS4, FF and KZ2 which are suppose to be the big games well we all know 2 of those games have been milked and 1, some hardly new the first rendition. After you have those games, it's either you get more sequals and wait 2 more years. Or you can make other claims about other games. This s all a cycle..but I do give the edge to sony, only because they have been in the game longer then MS and secured some big 3rd party titles for the last 10 years. Of course that is expected. Hey that's why I have both consoles...I wish there was only a section of gamers with both Devices or all 3 cause we all know what a PS3 fanboy is gonna say. Over the last 2 weeks nothing but Garbage on here, just sensless useless Garbage from gamers that own one console. Now you have to scan a thread and filter all that crap. Here and there you find someone talking sensible strategies of all 3 machines.
Thank you for your sensible post. You have restored a little hope in me for this site. Glad to see not everyone on here is a close minded drone. Bubbles
He seems fairly confident that the 360 will continue to get superior versions of games. While I don't think the PS3 versions will be that much better, it's a bit strange to hear him say that, considering that many games have improved on the PS3, and will continue to do so.
PR cyborg 3165 running the latest version of Vista.
haha is that it ? im serious :P hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha hahaha hmm lets see when u have played those games im still playing MGS4 but besides of that i got : afrca eight days mgs4 ( reason i bought ps3) killzone 2 gta4(multi) la noir exclusive franchise from rockstar inal Fantasy XIII Final Fantasy Versus XIII resistance 2 grand turismo 5 and many more ;) but these are the games im gonna buy heres the ps3 exclusive list ;) http://www.ps3forums.com/sh...
you'll still be playing mgs4 when i've played through 20 something games of equal or greater length? that statement alone is pretty damming to the ps3... your post is a perfect example of the difference between the two consoles... i can name 20+ good looking games that are coming out this year, and even missed a few... you come back and laugh like they are nothing, becuase you have such huge sure fire hits like africa? killzone 2 (apparently you missed killzone 1...)? what's next, lair 2? final fantasy xiii?? while it looks phenomonal, like all final fantasy games do... who are oyu fooling with a 2008 release date? if you've ever paid attention to a final fantasy release date, it comes out in japan, then 9-12 months later in the u.s., then even later in europe, etc... now, the japanese version MIGHT make it out in 2008, but by the time it comes to the rest of us in 2009, i'll have already gotten a free ps3 with a tv purchase.
hahaha if u think final fantasy is coiming out 2008 ur really a fan of ur own fanstasyanbd exclusive franchise from rock star hahahahsha right a gfame with no name is coming out in 2008 RIGHT ??? U MAKE ME LAUGH ALSO la noir what the hell is that sketchy game with no in game screens let alone gameplay,AFRICA and 8days (never heard of this crap ) wont be coming out anything soon and are not what real gamers want africa shud be on the wiithat there are not many exclsuive coming out fo rth eps3 u have to deal withthat fact
Golly, it's not even fun making fun anymore. Did I just say golly? >_<
I dont know what your talking about. Like they said it was all about focusing on holiday 2007 and whats NOW not NEXT. "But now that's behind us and we need to look foward to what we have in store for 2008, look forward to GDC." Please stay off the fricking drugs, xbox and nintendo have much to unveil. Maybe not nintendo but microsoft surely does by lookiing at the floorplan of GDC looks like theyll be dominating alongside epic.
What I expect from MS @ GDC is a massive push in Social Gaming. I dont think anyone (except the most delusional sony fanboys) can expect that MS *WONT* have hit after hit for hardcore gamers, and the more of the best exlusives, and better featuers/performance from the multi-plats (say, exclusive content for the Best Experience on GT4) etc etc in 2008. MS is surely getting the cream-of-the-crop of potential exlusives from 3rd parties (based on their success with attach rates & sales (attractive to the developers/publishers (who'd have thunk it eh??))). But, they are going to move into the General Family set-top market in a big big way. IPTV. More Communications options. More LIVE Socializing services. Music (zune). That Made-for-LIVE television series. More Windows Media Center features. I expect many group-games built around the big button controllers - maybe a group Trivia Game (seems like a no-brainer) and / or more classic board games? MS is *really* going to surprise in the Social Gaming space - and, yet again, PS3 will be playing catch-up as it tries to move away from its *own* Only Hardcore image. MS is going to move into the "Hey, we're the Fun Hub in your living room - not just those hard-to-play-complex-games your son-plays" space in 2008. Mark my words. *THAT* is what is going to sell 10-20 Million consoles this year...
who cares about exclusives when no matter what game it is 360 games look better and play better then ps3.bottom line 2008 will be a better year for game sells on 360 then 2007 we have plenty of games to choose from.just throw me a mmorpg and get a warhammer rts in there somewere as well and i will be set.
Ask and ye shall recieve: Marvel Universe Online Xbox 360 Exclusive: http://www.gamespot.com/xbo... Warhammer Xbox 360 Exclusive: http://www.gamespot.com/xbo... ==== @13 below; "Let's hope they get the issues fixed soon." What the HECK are you talking about? The issues were limited in scope, only affected a small group of users (no one I knew, my nephew didnt have a problem creating his new LIVE account) and of a short duration. They were caused by a MASSIVE influx of new users -- MORE than MS expected. *AND* The issue was a result of them not upgrading the system ahead of the new load -- there has been no other commentary about this situation OTHER than what I've described here. *AND* the problems were fixed before the new year -- YOUR FUD Is a week late pal. Time and again, you PS3 owners confuse your desired fantasy with reality -- from the heat-failures (not nearly as many as is represented, and fixed many months ago..), to sales numbers, to excuses (oh, they've had a year headstart!(inaccurate, the dev kits shipped at the same time), the developers are lazy!(just plain stupidity)) and on and on. Now, you've latched on to this minor hickup. Give it a rest, in-spite of what N4G's sony fanboys wish; its TERRIFIC to be a Xbox 360 owner and LIVE user.
Right now the word seems to smell a bit. Let's hope they get the issues fixed soon.
