The rest of 2009 is looking to be a good year for gamers. Here are the top 5 reveals from Nintendo's, Microsoft's, and Sony's press conferences over the past couple days.
5. PSP Go
A more compact, improved, PSP with a slider screen? Sign me up, although the $249 price tag does sting for a system that’s several years old with an iffy library of games.
Taking the interactivity of Nintendo’s Wii and subtracting the need for any controllers to wave around, Microsoft’s Natal is set on revolutionizing the gaming experience. We’ll see how the developers and consumers support this device in the future.
3. Metal Gear Comes To Xbox 360
Another huge coup for Microsoft (after last year’s announcement of Final Fantasy XIII), Hideo Kojima revealed that the next Metal Gear game, Metal Gear: Rising, will be
coming to the Xbox 360. Of course, it’s also coming to the PC and PS3 but that’s not important.
2. Metroid: Other M
When I did own a Wii, Metroid was by far the most solid title in the Wii library. This time, Team Ninja (makers of the Ninja Gaiden series) have taken the helm for Metroid’s new adventure.
1. Modern Warfare 2
Finally, gameplay footage of Infinity Ward’s sequel to 2007’s masterpiece, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. Nothing quite like driving a snowmobile in Russia with the throttle in your right hand and a Skorpion in your left. Modern Warfare 2 drops November 10th for the Xbox 360 and PS3.
