Every game on that list that I want is multi-platform. The only exclusive there that interests me is Halo Wars.

No interest in Star Ocean 4 at all ?

Also many gamers only have a 360, and many of those games are are either on PC or PS3, so you would have to buy both a PC and a PS3 to play them, when you can have them all on 360 with just one system and the lowest price imaginable

 

"He is lost in silence...he can not hear our music" ... familiar ? Mass Effect 2 rings a bell? It`s in winter 2009 and a massive game. Don`t tell me it will be on Pc because you don`t know. Want to play Alan Wake on the Pc? Please do...install Vista and play...no? I thought so.

Star Ocean 4 ? Race Pro ? Halo Wars ? Forza 3 ? Ninja Blade ? Halo Chronicles ? New Rare game? Nothing interesting?

Oh well...move along people,nothing to see here...

 

I'm not a big fan of modern JRPGs, especially SE. So no, I'm not interested in SO4... at all. The first Mass Effect was good despite its flaws but the sequel will make it to the PC sooner or later. Race Pro and Forza 3? I hate most racing games, especially racing sims. Halo Wars looks good but I'm always skeptical as to how an RTS will turn out on a console due to the limited controls. Ninja Blade? From Software has hardly blown me away in the past. Rare, they hardly produce system sellers. I'm dismissive of the 360's library because it simply isn't very impressive. It being perceived as being superior to that of the PS3 is hardly an accomplishment. Compare that list what I want for the PC this year:

Battle Forge
Bioshock 2: Sea of Dreams
Borderlands
Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor
Dawn of War II
Empire: Total War
F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin
Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising
Prototype
StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty
Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X.

I was hardly being thorough when I compiled this list, I could probably find more.

Edit: Here are a few that I just added to my wishlist after browsing a single site.

Sins of a Solar Empire: Entrenchment
World in Conflict: Soviet Assault
Diablo 3
Storm of War: Battle of Britain
Gish 2
They Hunger: Lost Souls
Dragon Age
Beyond Good & Evil 2
Zeno Clash
Alpha Protocol
Stormrise
Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena
Subversion

This is why the $200 cost for a 360 is better spent on a video card and some RAM. Using Tigerdirect.ca I'm getting 4 gigs of Dual Channel DDR2 RAM and a Geforce 9800 GT for 150 Canadian dollars. With this upgrade my PC can utterly crush the 360 (and PS3) in terms of performance.

Newegg.com is way cheaper than tiger at least for me in the US. but anyway the list is very great cant wait for alan wake and mass effect 2. my standpoint I used to be a PC/nintendo gamer I would upgrade my PC every 2 years and replace every 4 years. I can say that if you have a pc powerful enough to play those game then is a no brainer, buy them for PC but if your like me (i gave up PC gaming because it was just to expensive) and only use your pc for Starcraft and internet a 360 is much cheaper. I mean everything you need to have the best 360 experance you still spend less than you would to build or buy a gaming PC and it will be usable without an upgrade for a long time compared to a pc.

 

For $500 you can get a PC that will run games better than a X360 ever could. Add to the fact that PC gaming is cheaper because PC games are cheaper and have mods, and you don't have to pay to play online (unlike X360). Also PC has far more and better games than Xbox 360.

 

mabe, but how much better? can it play Crisis at max rez with everything on? i doubt it. So yea I could spend 500 dollars and have a good PC bearly more powerful than my 360 and yes free online, mods and cheaper games but can I buy used PC games? can I sell used PC games? no, at least not were I am. I buy new on very few games and used I can get NBA2K7 for 6 bucks or mass effect for 16 bucks Can you?  I guess all I am saying is if you have a good running PC and can play those games then great more power to you but I would have to put down an other 500 dollars to have a PC that in 2 years I would have to put down another 200 dollars to keep it up to date. thats 100 dollars a year so live is worth it.

Yeah, none interest me at all. Most of them I have never even heard of before. I'll pass.

Clearly doesn't own a 360 and just wants to incite fanboys.

Have you even looked into every single game on the list.  If you had you would find at least one that interested you.  Even loyal PS3 fans would be able to find one that interested them (if they were being honest).

Well, maybe he does not like all those games, including FF13, RE5 etc, but that is just his opinion

He obviously does not have a 360, since why would anyone keep a 360 given has no interest in any of its games ?

 

You are correct. RE5 may get a rent at some point, but it is multi plat, so you cant really count it in any one consoles lineup. Same goes for FF. While those games dont really interest me, the others,  I havent even heard of. .... aside from Alan Wake.

 

The title states "seems beyond impressive". I was mearly stating that to me it does not. There arent a ton of games that interest me on the PS3 either, but there are definitly a few. All exclusive. Every game I own aside from GHWT is exclusive. There are a lolt of PSN games that I will be getting as well in 09. Probably more of those than retail games.

This is the response you should have given the first time.  A little explanation for your opinion and not just "i don't like these, i'll pass."

So you DO or DO NOT own a 360?  I coudln't quite tell what you were referring to in your reply.  If you don't have a 360, then that again is more a reason why you likely haven't heard of many of these, and is perfectly understandable as to why you wouldn't want these, but at the same time, if you don't own a 360, you probably shouldn't comment on it's games.

Which PS3/360 exclusives interest you?

 

Nothing on the 360 interests me, thats why I have not bought one. The GT series on PS is always a must buy for me. Generally TEKKEN is as well, but I will pass this time as the majority of multi plat games have been crap. Every exclusive I have bought on the PS3 so far has been outstanding....aside from SOCOM. That game has potential, but needs some work.  LBP is a great game, KZ2 looks very good and is a Pre-order, R2 is outstanding, GT5 will be good this year, GOW3 I am anxiously awaiting, R&C games are always fun, Uncharted is still amazing,Warhawk is another very underated game. MGS4 was amazing. GTA would have probably been good, but going multi probably killed it, the GFX were absolutly horrible. Infamous  and Uncharted 2 are must buys as well.



I am sure nothing interests you on 360, because you do not have one

Personally i have both, and PS3 games are of the lowest quality, really short experiences, with small tiny levels and last gen gameplay and level design, like MGS4 and Killzone 2

99% of my gaming goes to huge really next gen titles like Fable 2, Banjo 3, Lost Odyssey and Alan Wake, Star Ocean 4, Divinity 2, Witcher, Two Worlds Temptation, Halo Wars, Venetica, KUF2 etc in 2009

PS3 is only one game mainly for me, FF13vs, which could always come to 360

Good for you, why should we care that you are brainwashed (cause that's what it takes for someone who likes traditional gaming to not be interested about anything on the360 while finding games like resistance 2 "outstanding") ???

Anyway if games like splinter cell:conviction and alan wake arrive in 009 then the 360 lineup will be outstanding.



When i see poeple say they like "nothing" on that list, i know where they are coming from

From the "i sadly don't own a 360" land obviously

Has anyone got the Gameinformer review information for Star Ocean 4 ?

 Explain this one,  how does MGS4 and KZ2 have last gen gameplay and level design?  Especially since KZ2 isnt even out yet



Killzone 2 demo is out, and is a toally old and linear generic experience, like Gears 2

MGS4 was even worst, because the levels were even smaller and felt even more barren and empty
