MS: 2011 is all about Kinect

According to Microsoft, next year is all about the use of it's new peripheral Kinect. Aside from that they also have Forza 3 & Gears 3 announced for lineup.

Hmm...Sony only has InFamous 2, Uncharted 3, The Last Guardian, Killzone 3, Resistance 3, Heroes on the Move, White Knight Chronicles 2, Motorstorm 3, Twisted Metal & more.

Could this be the year where Sony not only beats the 360 (like in past years), but utterly decimates it?

Seems unlikely since 90% of the content released next year will be cross platform, and if you're into gaming online then Live is still the best service by miles. Personally Mass Effect 3 is where its at for me next year. Can't wait for the finale.

As for their respective motion controllers, Sony and M$ both need to get their a*ses into gear and deliver some inspiring/interesting/innovative software that does something that actually makes the tech worthwhile. If they continue to market and develop the peripherals and games to ride on the same wave as the Wii then they'll remain a gimmick IMO and not really have any significant impact on new system sales.

2011 will be a good year for PS3 owners but it's too late for Sony to beat Microsoft this gen. Microsoft will just release their next console as soon as PS3 threatens to overtake 360 and claim victory. Victory for second place, anyway.

I do hope that Kinect is a very short-lived fad, though, because I have no interest in letting it play a part in my hobby.

Uncharted 3, Killzone 3, go on then i'll have some of that. But sony won't be anything until the ps5, so lets get the wiiiiiiiiii, x720 and the PS4 out of the way soon eh?

Just think PS5 will be 'in effect' in the year 2020. God, I hope I have a Ferrari, hookers and boot-full of cocaine by then.

I've never actually seen any much difference between the two. Only thing PSN really lacks is some form of cross game group/party chat.

Seconded. I've picked up both Kinect and Move but neither have any exciting games to go with them: I've not actually bought any titles for either, just Kinect adventures as it came with the peripheral and a couple of Move demos form PSN.

Don't forget the port of No More Heroes! ^_^

Haha, it'll be an interesting year!

So far it looks like the PS3 will have a steady stream of core exclusives throughout the year, the Wii may struggle however the 3DS should more than make up for it.

Without knowing too much, I'd say the PS3 is looking like the strongest, with the 3DS jumping in to shake things up :D

I've been thinking for weeks that there was nothing to look forward to until Battlefield 3...there still isn't.

Not likely:
http://www.joystiq.com/2010/12/10/xbox- ... -in-novem/
http://segmentnext.com/2010/12/12/xbox- ... ives-2011/

And how many of those PS3 exclusives are killer apps on the scale of Halo?

There'll be far more cross platform titles than exclusives, both will do well and chances are next year with end similar to this with their respective positions.

The real loser in 2011 will be Nintendo, with Wii sales already suffering this year and likely to plummet in the next.
HADDOCKEN!

I'm pretty sure that there's many more games to come exclusive to 360 other than just GoW 3 and Forza 4. MS just don't hype up games years before they release them like Sony. Let's wait till next years E3 before we judge.

As it stands atm, 3DS is more appealing to me than either Move or Kinect (and their pathetic games line up) though, by quite some distance too.

That's like comparing a Ferrari to a tricycle. Both Move & Kinect are utterly lame imo.

I dont think Killzone is a Halo killer. Bungie have established too big of a community and support the game more than any other game could ever wish for.
