for 2009, PS3 got 2 exclusives that's decent and 1 exclusive that's good and those are:
God of War 3 (this is the good one)
God of war 3 will NOT be released in 2009, the reason I believe it will not be released this year is because it was shown THIS YEAR for the FIRST TIME in VIDEO ONLY format, which means, the game is NOT coming out this year, I have NEVER seen a game first shown in VIDEO ONLY format and then gets released the same year it was first shown, if there was a gameplay video shown of God of War 3 this year I would have no problem believing it will be released this year. Killzone 2 was first shown in VIDEO ONLY format in 2005 and is NOW getting a release, almost 4 years later.
that leaves only 2 decent games coming to the PS3 in 2009,
Killzone 2 and Uncharted 2
Now on to 360,
GTA 4: Lost and Damned (I don't care what anybody says any game with 10-20 hours of gameplay counts as a full game.)
Halo 3: ODST (It's Halo, nuff said)
Now looking at the timelines Killzone 2 will have to prove that it can beat the best shooting game this generation, Gears of War 2 (which is now fixed for online), yes, I know Gears of War 2 is a 2008 title, but it's a new game, it's only been out for 2 months and will only be out for 3 months on feburary 7th the month Killzone 2 is coming out but its still the shooter that Killzone 2 is going to have to prove it can beat on the Xbox 360, not Halo, I think we all know who will win that battle, then you got GTA 4: Lost and Damned, Sony has no answer to this in quarter one, then later in the year you have Uncharted 2 going up against Halo 3: ODST, again, we all know whats going to happen there.
PS3 MAY have the most exclusives coming out in 2009, but it's not about just 2009, it's about the Xbox 360s lineup to date versus the PS3s, that's why I threw in Gears of War 2 as a game thats competiting in 2009, when you think about it Gears of War 2 was released late 2008, November 7th to be exact, so it's practically a 2009 title anyway.
That leaves 3 games on Xbox 360 for 2009,
Gears of War 2, GTA 4: Lost and Damned, and Halo 3: ODST.
that's 2 on PS3 versus 3 on Xbox 360.
LOL @ PS3s lineup.
This has to be the funniest post I've seen in a long time. You just compared three full games versus downloadable content and an expansion pack. Then you threw in a 2008 title for good measure.
And I'm not going to get into the fact that you seemingly know the quality of each title before they're even released.
By the way, both trailers thus far for God of War III were released LAST year. The first back in June. Of course, that doesn't mean it will coming out in 2009 (I don't think it will), but your logic behind thinking it wouldn't was flawed.
