2009 the year of the PS3

Ok, For 2009, PS3 will be the console of the year!

2008 was going out to the 360 no doubt, very good exlusive titles was out on the 360 during 2008! Yeah so the PS3 had Uncharted and MGS4 but it was like those two that really stood out if you ask me.

but now in 2009 hey baberiba!

First out is Killzone 2! Hey, FPS has never been better I guess! Closly followed by a double deal RE5 (it will play so good on the ps3 though so I will get it for that system) then we just marches on in the year of the ps3: Uncharted 2, God Of War III, Heavy Rain, MAG which I don't know so much about but from what Ive read if it comes even close to what the developers are talking about this gonna be awsome! andlast but not least on my "looking forward list" for me EyePet which seems so silly yet awsome!

so well.. this are just some of the more big names for 2009 only for the PS3 so 2008 the year of the 360 2009 the year of the ps3!

The Ps3 has a history of overpromising and underdelivering

Uncharted came out it 2007. And if you ask me, In 2008, the PS3 had the best line up, but just failed to execute on the sales. And MAG will not come out in 2009, we don't even know if MAG is it's real name...

I think the PS3 had the best lineup in 2008. And I think it will have the best lineup in 2009. I'm sure Microsoft have a surprise or two up their sleeve though so don't count that out.

It will still sell the least consoles.

Those are my thoughts.

Doesn't bother me, still planing on picking up a ps3 by the end of the year or winter of 2010.

Eh... you have a decent point.  About this year's line up.  But a bunch of people said the same thing about 08 and I bet I still spend a ton more time playing my PC and 360, then I do playing my PS3.  Just like in 08.

I used to be a PS fanboy.  But after to many disappointments, I have very little faith.  Exclusives aren't all the PS3 needs.  Home needs to be rethought out or just redone completely, PSN is just lame.  Private servers are fail.  Translation from JP to EN is still horrible and blue-ray, all thoe very nice.  Isn't needed now at all and I don't see it ever being needed.  Maybe in 5 years.  If DVDs are even still being used.  I still don't notice a major difference between 360 and the PS3 multi-platform titles.

I hope Killzone 2 is great,  But I don't know if it will be pulling me off of CoD4.  Which I play on 360 since thats where all my friends are.  Heavy Rain game looks horrible, like another PC to console port.  That just wont work with out a keyboard and mouse. 

I want PS to be good again.  But it's ok, they had a good run and I still love em.  I'm sure every so often a great exclusive will rise up.  But this is 360's gen.  It's just more fun for me.

I get the feeling some ppl just adds me as a fanboy.. read my post and you see Im not!
This year there will be a bunch of really awsome games comming out only on the ps3... its a fact..
2008 was the year of the 360 with gears of war 2, halo 3 bla bla bla it was.. ps3 didn't match that.. nintendo wii? yeah well.. who cares? it sells anyhow.. and yeah I got one and enjoys mario galaxy to this very day!

and Uncharted.. dude who wrote that it came out in 2007..depends on where in the world you live in dude!

Posted by TwoOneFive

idiot. lol uncharted didnt com out last year

Posted by c1337us

Perhaps your right but I am unphased by its "position". As long as Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo all pump out a handful good titles each I'll but happy.

1) explain why PSN is "lame", say what private servers are fail, what translation is horrible, and if it isnt needed how many disks would it take to make mgs4 on a dvd again?

2) you do know heavy rain is a ps3 only game...and that its pretty much a big quick time event so how would it be so good on pc?

3) this gen isnt half over and your calling the victor? geee your smart..

1) uncharted came out in 07 and mgs4, resistance 2, valkyria chronicles, socom, and more where all great...

2) its name will probable not be mag and since its made by zipper it will probable be called something like socom wars and will be a 2010 game MOST likely..

I was fooled into thinking last year was the year of the PS3... not this time.  And as long as the Final Fantasy series is multiplat, Sony will never have another "year" this generation.

I dont agree., All the ps3 really had over the 360 for 2008 was MGS4 and little big planet, I bought both and thought both were overrated. I have had my ps3 for 2 years now and the 360 for 3, if it wasnt for uncharted and the bluray player I would have hardly turned it on. I hope 2009 is the year but Im not getting my hopes up.

No offence but can people please take note: Heavy Rain is not just a QTE. You have a protagonist that you move around and look at things and, you know, interact with things. It's NOT just a QTE. Gah, I wish people who talked about games would actually, you know, ocassionally "find out" about them.

Secondly - I don't want to get into a fanboy war in here because that's pathetic but the way things stand right now Sony have the best lineup. Even if only half the games "expected" get a release Sony still have the best lineup. Microsoft are a title or two short on what Sony have but I'm sure they'll drop a Killer Instinct announcement or something.

Of course it's all depending on your taste: if Killzone 2, Ratchet & Clank, inFamous, God Of War, Heavy Rain, Uncharted 2 and Gran Turismo aren't your cup of tea, well fair enough. But don't come on the forums moaning there "aren't any games".

I think LittleBigPlanet was better then any 360 exclusive released in 08.
And I should know, I was playing 360 all 08 with no PS3.

While I don't forsee the 360 losing any steam this year, I can see the PS3 making a comeback. But, a few things need to happen first:

1) Either the price needs to drop by the time tax refunds come out, or the economy needs to take a steep upturn. $400 is a lot of money for people who are concerned that their job may not exist in a few months.

2) They need to announce more exclusives, and really advertise.  I see an average of 2 Xbox commercials to every PS3 commercial out there on TV (but print is a little closer).  The Playstation brand has been diminished this generation, and re-establishing the name would go a long way toward sales figures.

4) PSN should be promoted more heavily. As an avid PC gamer, I can attest to the feeling of "double-dipping" when I think about Live. Outside of subscription-based MMOs, most PC games can be played for free online. Paying what admittedly is a low price just for matchmaking, friends lists, avatars, etc is a rip off. They can do this stuff for free.

5) Send out press releases and talk  to the major media outlets. Call into question the reliability of the Xbox 360, show the failure rates. When times are tight like these, percieved value is a major contributor to sales.  If Sony can show that their console is the least likely to fail, has many of the same games (that look as good or better) as the Xbox 360, and can compete on price- they'll sell a ton.

Just for disclosure's sake- I went through two 360s before I sold it off, and would be interested in buying a PS3 this year if the price dips to $299 or so.

It's dumb to say that 2009 will be the year of the PS3 after last year not meeting expectations but I will say that it definitely has the best announced lineup of this year. Here's to hoping Uncharted 2 and InFamous make it out in time.

Posted by get2sammyb

Let's not forget that it won't just be releases in '09 that give the PS3 steam. It's almost certain we'll see the first of the new Ico game at E3 this year. Which is a pretty big deal indeed.

well we didn't know about our big exclusive last year at this point.
So far I'd say it's Star Ocean 4 and ODST (this to a lesser extent- should be great, but it's not a full game)

But again guys, saying 2009 will be the year of the Ps3 when everyone said 2008 would be a year of the Ps3 and it wasn't is retarded.  Even more
is the fact that everyone said this about 2007 as well.  Everyone said this about the launch of the Ps3 also.

And each year the 360's lineup became a..yea, so what's left? type deal, every year they tell us and it comes out relatively soon.   On G4TV a MS representative basically laid it out saying something along the lines of: "look at the next few months for the 360.  We have more than enough solid games coming out in these months alone.  At MS, we like to focus on the near future rather than promising and undelivering.  Don't worry, we definately have cards up our sleeves for the upcoming conferences"
Jees, nah, you're right, it's going to be the year of the Ps3, obviously....

I'm not wealthy and only own an Xbox 360 but don't feel compelled to justify my choice of system and flame others for owning another console....

I own all consoles but I feel complained to flame the wii.  It just sucks THAT BAD!
did rent house of the dead.  now though, that is a fun game.  The third good wii game (cause honestly, zelda is a gamecube game)

and as much as i flame it, I do play most of these supposely good games (de blob, no more heroes, etc.).  Not saying there's no other good enjoyable games, but there's barely any that I could justify myself buying for my 360/Ps3 at $50.

Last year was supposed to be the year of the PS3 too. C'mon. Don't make a fool of yourself. You have no idea how this year will turn out.

Posted by SathingtonWaltz

I thought that Sony had the best lineup last year. This year looks pretty outstanding as well.
