When I say killer apps, I mean games that will sell > 500k and finish with review scores higher than 8.5 on www.gamerankings.com. Here are my 10 killer apps for the USA by the end of 2007 for this generation: 360: Lost Planet Halo 3 Mass Effect PS3/360: Assassin's Creed GTA 4 PS3: Metal Gear Solid 4 Wii: Super Smash Brothers Brawl Metroid Prime 3 Super Mario Galaxy Dance Dance Revolution: Hottest Party (you better believe dancing with hands and feet could be huge...fun...and competitive) Here are a dozen important games that should be sleepers if critically well recieved... (compiled from hype and a look at www.ign.com release dates). I consider a sleeper to have sales of 250k to 500k...with scores in the 7.5+ range average wise. If a game scores over 9 and sells under 250k I call it a cult classic. Wii: Dragon Quest Swords SSX Blur Sadness Disaster: Day of Crisis PS3: F.E.A.R. Heavenly Sword Warhawk Eye of Judgement 360: Too Human Elder Scrolls IV Shadow Run Castlevania Personally, if I had to pick 10 of these for the 3 systems...I'd go with: Wii: Metroid Prime 3 Super Mario Galaxy SSX Blur Disaster: Day of Crisis Smash Brothers DDR: Hottest Party 360: Lost Planet Too Human Castlevania PS3: Metal Gear Solid 4 I may add some thoughts later on what may be 2007 cult classics.
