Forums - Gaming Discussion - 2008 the year of the PS3 or Xbox?

I think the problem is that the Wii is likely to only have 5-6 great games for the entire year while the PS3 and 360 are likely to have 25-30. Its basically the same thing we've seen year after year, a Nintendo console that gets a few good games and then everyone has to do the "Nintendo wait" for the next good game (anywhere from 2-4 months, sometimes longer).

P.S. I suspect the thread starter started this thread as flame bait to try to start something with the fallout being that it will get some 360 and/or PS3 fanboys banned.


Yeah, that's about I expect from my Wii. It's the same as N64 and Gamecube except more people want it.


From the end of fiscal 2007 (March 31st 2007) many/most third party developers have been talking big about providing more and better support for the Wii, which we really stated to see in quantity in the second half of 2007 (quality will take time), and you expect the Wii to have only a couple of good games? There are as may significant third party games being released before March 31st 2008 as you and Legend11 are expecting from all developers in 2008; your expectations will be wrong on an amazing scale ...

Fixed your typo.


Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

There wasn't a typo ...

A couple of months ago (about August) there was more third party releases before January 1st 2008 on the Wii than there was on the XBox 360 or PS3; the list was heavily padded with shovelware but was a larger list of third party games than the Gamecube recieved in any year of its life. The number of third party games being released for the Wii is fairly good, the quality needs to improve though.

Okay, if that wasn't a typo, then I guess you meant "started" instead of "stated". Right?

Or maybe it's just me having trouble reading this sentence.

                 With regard to Call of Duty 4 having an ultra short single player campaign, I guess it may well have been due to the size limitations of DVD on the XBox 360, one of various limitations multi-platform game designers will have to take into consideration-Mike B   

Proud supporter of all 3 console companys

Proud owner of 360wii and DS/psp              

Game trailers-Halo 3 only dissapointed the people who wanted to be dissapointed.

Bet with Harvey Birdman that Lost Odyssey will sell more then Blue dragon did.

i think HOME is the dark horse. People could buy a PS3 just because of thier friends are talking HOME. Or HOME just unless.

for 2007, PS3 software sale sucks compare to wii and 360. Hardware sale is almost same as 360.



you know the very first thought in my mind when i read this thread was a very bad shill.
