Forums - Microsoft Discussion - 2010 to be the year of the Xbox 360

I don't know that 2008 was the year of the 360.

the ps3 had these game review scores at IGN.

GTA IV 10
MGS4 10
Little Big Planet 95
Resistance 2 95
Valkyrie Chronicles 91

and the 360 had these

GTA IV 10
Fallout 3 96
Gears 2 95
Bionic Commando Rearmed 94
Castle Crashers 90
Left 4 Dead 90
Fable II 88
Ninja Gaiden 87
Tales of Vesperia 82

Lost Odyssey 80
Banjo Kazooie Nuts and Bolts 80

Even though there is more quantity on the 360 side, I don't think that the quality is there to trump two tens, two 95s, and (strategy) jrpg of the year on PS3.



Heavens to Murgatoids.

I think it will be the year of "HD" consoles.

SONY

GT5
GOW3
FF13 & Verses
Twisted Metal
Top secret Rockstar game
Probably a new LBP & KZ, too

360

Gears 3
Alien wake
Forza 3
New Rare game

Mass effect 2 will probably be multiplat.

And, as for surprises, both SONY & M$ will have quite a few I would suspect.

Add Gears of War 3. Gears of War was released in 2006. Gears of War 2 was released in 2008. It is very likely Gears of War 3 will be released in 2010 and it will be announced around March 2010, released in November 2010.

Alan Wake, Lost Odyssey 2, Final Fantasy XIII, Mass Effect 2, Assassins Creed 2 are all going to be releasing on X360 in 2010. Plus many more games multi-platform, XBox Live Arcades and a few exclusive games.

 

 

assassins creed 2? i thought that was coming out 2012?

^I don't remember anything turning around for 360 last year until a juicy price cut real close to the release of the big mammoth called Gears of War 2.

This year:  No mammoth. No price cut. And I'm sure they'll have a strong software lineup (mostly thanks to multiplats) but let's see how that turns out this time without the aforementioned factors and more aggresive competition.

 

I'll echo this in a way, except change it to: it was only the price cut, not some rash of announced games, that spurred 360 sales on and prevented PS3 from gaining ground.  The price cut was big enough to hold off a more heavy-hitting PS3 lineup.  Going forward, who knows what will happen on the price front.

 

I love your bitter tears. Every week the 360 keeps outselling the ps3, that's another week your emo rage builds even higher.

The 360 has the games and the price.





Current-gen game collection uploaded on the profile, full of win and good games; also most of my PC games. Lucasfilm Games/LucasArts 1982-2008 (Requiescat In Pace).

Why wouldn't it last?

 



360 games: Alan Wake, Splinter Cell Conviction, Mass Effect 2, Forza 3, Rare titles.

-Possible launch of the next Xbox
- 10 year anniversary of PS2......ergo it will finally be discontinued.

2010 the Year of MS, never mind just the 360.

 Unlike Xbox 1, MS actually has control over the manufacturing cost of components. And unlike Xbox 1, the 360 is raking in profit every fiscal quarter, and yearly LIVE gold suscribers will continue to drive revenue, unlike XBox 1 which only had 2 million LIVE members.

 Now this seems a bit of a strange post. You use reviews to judge a lineup? Most reviewers nowadays are crap. But also tend to lean towards hyped games. If your into reviews try metacriticing them. Also Fallout 3 was on PS3 as well.

But regardless, people say 2008 was the year of PS3. I dont know. Yes it had MGS4.

But many many people would choose the 360 exclusive list over the PS3 one.

Tales Of Vesperia, Lost Odyssey and Ninja Gaiden 2 are 3 game experiences you just cant get on the PS3 right this minute. (although we do have late ports coming). Also Left4Dead, Fable 2 and Gears 2 are AAA top games. And even BK N&B was a good game. 2008 saw 360 have great games exclusive across a variety of genres. In terms of quality with variety 360 wins hands down in 08.

Ask yourself this. Which big hitters did M$ release in 08 that was an FPS????



I rather wait till we get closer to the end of 09 till we determine this. It very well could be anyones year as far as we know.

Even the iPhone could take 2010 :P
