@ STAGE

I totally love how you ignore MM's point. Crackdown beta came with Halo 3, now, that is pretty big considering Halo is MS's biggest franchise. All you are saying is pure speculation. Resistance and even Resistance 2 sold more than Crackdown.

LOL I love how

Crackdown = AAA big hitter.

Yet Resistance 2 sold more = not heavy hitter.



Around the Network

(Rumored) PS3 Line-up for 2010:
-Gran Turismo 5 (The biggest exclusive for the PS3, yet. Bigger than Halo.)
-Jaffe's game (not gonna be of much effect on hardware, unless it's really really good)
-Socom 4 (same as above)
-Resistance 3 (same as above)
-Killzone 3 (if done right, it could drive hardware sales, but not by much)
-The Agency (mmo; might affect hardware but not by much)
-Free Realms (mmo)
-DC Universe Online (mmo)
-Final Fantasy XIV (semi-exclusive; won't affect hardware much because FF13 will)
-Motorstorm 3 (same as Killzone 3)
-ModNation Racers (won't affect hardware unless it's really really good)
-The Last Guardian (now this is probably one of the most anticipated PS3 game ever; will affect hw even if it didn't do large sales numbers)
-Playstation move (it will increase hw sales slightly)
-3D gaming (it's gonna be expensive so it won't increase hw by much, if any at all)

Now it all depends on E3. So far it seems like Sony is winning WW.

FF14 (Console Exclusive for 2010, according to Jack)

Slight correction but Trenton actually said "Playstation3 will be the only console you'll be able to play Final Fantasy XIV on when it launches in 2010".  That's not quite the same thing as console exclusive for all of 2010, it's a careful choice of words that state it'll be launch exclusive, but we don't know beyond that...

Console exclusive = 2010

Not console exclusive= after 2010

That's what I got .

Read it again.  FFXIV launches in 2010, and when that happens, PS3 is the only console you'll be able to play it on. The 360 port could come a year later, a week later, or anytime really.

I assume it's coming in December, so no way another console will see it this year.

Isn't the beta this spring?  I can't imagine they'll wait half a year to launch unless some major issues creep up...

Halo has a beta this spring too, means nothing.

Halo's infamous for extended beta periods, it's far from the norm.

For a more relevant comparison...

  • Final Fantasy XI beta = Dec 21, 2001
  • Final Fantasy XI launch = May 16, 2002
  • Final Fantasy XIV beta = March 11, 2010 (!)
  • Final Fantasy XIV launch = ???


I don't think so for one reason, I don't think Europe is gonna change like that again, although it will shrink the weekly sales gap. I could see xbox outselling PS3 by quite a bit in the US and taking Canada back, but the 360 isn't gonna outsell PS3 in Europe anymore. So at best i could see 360 slightly outselling PS3. With Europe not going back to 360 and Japan even worse i just don't see it happening.
