Locked: Are these the system sellers of 2008?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Are these the system sellers of 2008?

Lot's of fans toss the term around, but really there have been very few system sellers. This gen, I can definitively pinpoint just 2 - WiiSports and Halo3. But 2008 is shaping up to be the biggest year in this generation, possibly deciding the final winners and losers before the year is out, so there is a lot riding on these titles. So which, if any, of these will have the ability to sell systems on their own strength?

PS3

  • Killzone2
  • GTA4
  • Metal Gear Solid 4
  • Final Fantasy XIII
  • Singstar
  • Little Big Planet
  • Gran Tourismo 5
  • Tekken 6
  • Home

360

  • GTA4 with exclusive content
  • HALO Wars 
  • Splinter Cell: Conviction
  • Too Human
  • Fable 2
  • Alan Wake
  • Left 4 Dead

Wii

  • Super Smash Bros
  • Mario Kart
  • WiiFit

Hmm... Wii's looking a little thin...

 What makes you think that so many unproven franchises are system sellers ? just because fanboys in forums hype them to death?

 

The only real system sellers in 08:

GTA 4, Gran turismo 5,  MGS 4, Mario Kart, Smash bros brawl, Wii Fit, and may be Halo wars.


FF 13 is not coming out this year.

 If resistance 2 it's a system seller we would need to add like 30 games for each console.

* HALO Wars: hmm i think Halo 3 hooked that crowd
* Splinter Cell: Conviction: won't sell systems
* Too Human: maybe
* Fable 2: will sell sytems
* Alan Wake: won't sell systems
* Left 4 Dead: won't sell systems

Wii

* Super Smash Bros: will sell systems

When i say won't sell systems i mean that it won't cause i significant boost.

Killzone 2, Too human, and left for dead i have a feeling wont move as many systems as people believe. I think that left for dead will sell alot of software though.
