Interesting

Them pumping their rescources into a new secret Xboxis very possible.Aanlysts have been saying they expect to see next gen consoles in the working maybe as early as a year or two.

Well,this is ANOTHER prime example why I tell people that they should wait and see before judge.Good things come to those who wait

I don't buy into the "Microsoft is saving their stuff for E3" argument. When you've got Sony and Nintendo revealing exclusives left and right, it's a stupid idea to wait and let people get pissed at you.

If Sony and Nintendo are announcing a ton of exclusives, why would Microsoft wait so long and let their userbase sweat it out if they had something up their sleeve all along? It just doesn't make sense . . .

It does make sense.Keeping secrets and not revealing them left and right like sony does is good.Sony revealed everything except for twisted metal(which was suspected).Imagine if sony waited before announcing all their exclusives,it would of been 10 times better.That is what Nintendo did this E3,unveiled a big surprise of games that none of us knew.

MS right now is focusing on the holiday(as usual).After this holiday is over,it would be a prime time to unveil there 2011 stuff.This is why I tell you and everybody complaning about xbox's 2011 exclusive list to wait until 2011 before complaining.

People like surprises.Surprise=More hype.More hype=very good for whoever is trying to hype it.

Lets say that MS waited to next years e3(or some earlier gaming convention/conference) to unviel there 2011.By then their fanbase would be begging to hear of the exclusives,then next thing ya know,MS to the rescue and unveils there awesome 2011 list

And I know you are gonna debate with this because you hate MS and cant accept that they are smart Very Happy

Very good article. Totally agree with it.

Microsoft have given us soo little recently. It's been shocking and very disappointing but I guess that's only if I'm very cynical, it's possible they have something but to leave it so late and to throw it out in one go as opposed to spread it out and give us game after game like SOny and Nintendo is so stupid!

No wonder Peter Molyneux expects Fable III to sell so well, because it's one of the only friggin exclusives (yes I realise it's on pc too but it's first party), that Xbox has announced!!

I don't want to see a new xbox anytime soon.

The only thing I could see them improving on is slightly better graphics.

I'm with the arbiter on this one.

It's most likely a surprise from Microsoft in terms of new games.

Like how Sony surprised everyone with Portal 2....and a new Twisted Metal game.

That's always been Microsoft's strategy. More than half the games Sony announces don't usually even have a release dates. Most of Microsoft's games usually have release dates or an estimate of when it will be coming to the market.

But seriously though. Why do people keep acting like Sony has tons and tons of games coming out soon? The only 2 exclusives on the PS3 coming out this year left are LBP2 and GT5. Likewise Microsoft has Halo Reach and Fable 3.

Sony has more ANNOUNCED games coming in the future. Like Ratchet and Clank and Resistance 3, though we don't know shit about those games yet. It's like me getting excited about Codename Kingdoms even though it was just merely announced.

The PS3 is also getting The Sly Collection, Final Fantasy XIV, and Time Crisis: Razing Storm, not to mention a huge lineup in 2011.

FFXIV is 2011 for PS3. The PS3 does get MOH: Frontlines remake, PJ shooter 2, and eyepet though.

Wait, sorry, I was mistaken about FFXIV. The PC version is coming out this year but the PS3 version isn't coming out until 2011. My bad. The other two games I mentioned still stand, though.

Oh alright.

"The Sly Collection" is just remastered PS2 games. I say "so what" to that. If Microsoft released Halo 1 and 2 remastered in HD to the X360 I doubt anyone other than massive Halo fans would actually care.

But still it's kind of sad that Reach and GT5 are overshadowing those games you mentioned, I completely forgot they even existed.

Yeah, I agree with you (for once Razz). We shouldn't include casual games because anyone can really make shovelware.

I was actually psyched for Razing Storm, but I thought it was a 2011 release, up until I found out like a week ago that it's a November 2010 release. I'm a sucker for on-rails shooters. The funny thing is, I'm more excited about Fable III than anything else, even though it's pretty much in the shadow of Reach as the defining 360 exclusive of 2010.

Where do fanboys come into play in any of this? Besides, by 360 fanboy's logic, Frontlines is an exclusive because even though it's a game from a previous gen, it's been altered. Razz

As long as Peter Molyneux keeps his word, Fable 3 should be the best Fable game yet.

He's been known to over-hype his games, so I figure that as long as I don't listen to a word he says, I should enjoy the game. Razz But yeah, I'm really pumped for Fable III.

Do you honestly think the developers of Sports Champions spent a ton of time on the game? What about Kinect Adventures. Good shovelware is still shovelware, so I think it's best to not include it.
