Top 5 Exclusive XBox 360 Games of 2009

50°
299w ago - The XBox 360 had a great year in 2008, featuring a couple of great exclusives in Gears of War 2 and Fable II. In 2009, here are the top 5 exclusive picks:

Halo 3: ODST - Given Microsoft's complete lack of clarity on their 2009 line-up, the only title that they're currently (and exclusively) offering in 2009 that I am interested in is Halo 3: ODST. Despite Halo 3 being somewhat of a disappointment to me, I find myself irresistibly excited by the prospect of a new Halo game.

The series still has some kick ass weapons, great maps and fantastic controls to boot–and with it being Bungie developed, it's a safe bet to be one of the better titles of the year. It certainly doesn't hurt that it'll be a budget priced game, either.

Star Ocean: The Last Hope - I'm a sucker for RPG's, and I'm also a sucker for Star Ocean games. I remember playing the first Star Ocean way back when it was first released. I'll be truthful in saying I haven't playing every single one, but now that it's finally coming to the 360 I couldn't be more excited. Not too much information has been revealed about The Last Hope, but it looks like it will be a beautiful game at the very least.

Splinter Cell: Conviction - Splinter Cell Conviction has been long awaited ever since...
 

UnAnnounced Classic Sega Games Coming to PSN and XBLA

300w ago - Several unannounced SEGA-made games recently popped up on the Entertainment Software Rating Board's (ESRB) Web site.

Apparently the publisher is using the Wii's Virtual Console as a sort of test bed as the listed titles have already released on Nintendo's System (not to mention the fact that they're also classic games).

Now coming to Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network are Gunstar Heroes, Phantasy Star II, Comix Zone and Sonic The Hedgehog 3.

There's no indication of a release date for any of the titles, but as soon as we get wind of one, we'll let you know.
 

Countdown: The Top 10 Video Games of 2008

650°
300w ago - This year brought many games with high profile ones such as Grand Theft Auto IV and Gears of War 2. It was not until late into the year we began to see more bigger titles coming out for the holidays.

It all started in early September with Spore, Crysis Warhead, and Rock Band 2. LucasArts' Star Wars: The Force Unleashed didn't quite impress its critics but sales were good enough.

With the surprise success of The Witcher; released back in 2007, Atari released a new version dubbed The Witcher: The Enhanced Edition with new features and bug-less. EA's highly anticipated MMORPG Warhammer Online: The Age of Reckoning was released in mid-September for those who were looking for a different online game to play besides Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures and World of Warcraft.

September ending with Gearbox Software's realistic WWII first-person shooter Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway which was one of my favorite games for the year.

October was the big month for games. It seemed like every week had a big title coming out. Dead Space, the horror first-person shooter from EA hit the spot for those who enjoyed blasting monsters and watching their limbs explode.

Unlike your typical first-person shooter, Dead Space offered some innovative features that kept the game interesting...

301w ago - Phantom Entertainment has launched its online gamestore today. The store currently features over 2600 PC games, although most are still none the wiser regarding the actual Phantom console (prototype from ArsTechnica pictured below) that we've heard so much about previously.

Press Release: Phantom Entertainment today launched its highly anticipated online game store, located at gamestore.phantom.net.

The game store features an impressive catalog of over 2,600 PC games including top sellers like Fallout 3 and Far Cry 2. The store allows for outright purchasing of video games or try before you buy, and features level 4 merchant abilities.

It uses a highly advanced content licensing management system to track all games purchased, so once a game is paid for and downloaded, the user owns the license forever and can return to re-download the game in the future without incurring additional cost.

This is all made possible by a strategic partnership with GameStreamer, Inc. and their Enterprise Class Gaming Network built on top of Savvis Communications Tier 1 backbone and data centers.

301w ago - Sony's PlayStation 3 Marketing Manager Kim Nguyen announced that starting tonight their Video Delivery Service campaign officially launches, with our first airing on Monday Night Football.

To quote: When the Video Delivery Service launched on July 15th, we broadened our content offering to include TV shows and movies to make the PS3 the total entertainment package.

With nearly 1000 full-length movies and 2700 TV episodes for download onto the PS3 or PSP, the Video Delivery Service brings you digital entertainment right into your living room (popcorn not included). So check out great titles like The Dark Knight, Hancock, Iron Man, Family Guy, and much more.





The TV spot uses humor to convey that the PS3 is not just a gaming machine but also a "movie downloading machine" when a guy tries to win over his skeptical girlfriend.

You'll have to watch the TV spot to find out how this classic guy vs. girl face-off plays out to see who wins in the end.
