Microsoft: 2010 Best Year For 360, No Need For Blu-Ray

Reach expected to be Game of the Year

2010 will be a great year for gaming. There's no doubt about that. And Microsoft are confident it'll be the best year in the Xbox 360's history, since being released in 2005.

In an interview with Austrian site pressetext (after multiple translation services), Xbox Austria marketing manager Thomas Kritsch said that "2010 will be the best year for the Xbox 360. Our portfolio includes exclusive titles Mass Effect 2, Splinter Cell Conviction, Alan Wake, Crackdown 2, Fable 3 and naturally expect Halo Reach, of which we, that it will be the biggest game of the year,"

Like he said, expect great things.

However, Blu-ray will not feature in the 360's 2010, after Kritsch said that they "see no need, since it would only increase costs for the console and Blu-ray for games is not absolutely necessary."

Halo Reach won't be the biggest game of the year, I'm getting bored of them saying that, though they do have a decent line-up of games coming this year



i agree with this guy
it will be a great year for the 360



End of 2012 prediction:

xbox 360 : 73-75 million  playstation 3 : 72-74 million  wii : 104-105 million 

Most hyped for :

Bioshock: infinte, The Last Of Us, Alan Wake's American Nightmare and Agent

No need for blu-ray yet Mass Effect 2 makes you swap discs 3 times. Ok.

LOL I'd hate to see your face at the end of the year when Halo Reach wins GOTY.

Swapping discs 3 times just means the game is longer and has more stuff. Be happy. I never complained in Lost Odyssey and the 360 owners who get FFXIII wont be complaining either.



Blue-Ray is always nice to have but it is not the end of the world swapping discs:P



Spending 5 seconds swapping disks is better than waiting 3-5 minutes to install parts of the game (like in MGS4).

I'm not sure if it will win GOTY, but it'll probably be #1 in sales. 

Actually, Super Mario Galaxy 2 will be #1 in sales.  But Reach can fight it out with Call of Duty: Vietnam for #2.



AWWW SNAP MS DONE WENT THERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Sony better make a diss back to them! Call it God of War 300 bars (LOL)
