I know this is the games forum but I decided to include 360/PS3 games so owners of all 3 platforms can decide which version of the game to get. Maybe I'll include DS/PSP in a future update, this is really just to remind everyone of the great releases coming out this year, feel free to suggest any other hot game for 2008 I might have missed. This is divided in sections, first all the 360-exclusives (as in completely exclusive), then the PS3 exclusives, then PC exclusives, then Wii exclusives, then 360-PS3-Wii, 360-PS3, PC-360 and finally games available on the 360-PS3-PC. (There are no games available only for PC and PS3 and only two games available for ALL platforms so I just made a clarification in the 360-PS3-Wii in bold). The format is [name of the game] - [developer (not publisher)] - [genre] - [release date] and are organized by their release date. Additionally, the name of games will be bolded as they are release and their metacritic score will be put in parenthesis next to the release date (in bold also). 360 Tales of Vesperia - Namco Bandai - Action RPG - August 26 (82) Infinite Undiscovery - Square Enix - RPG - September 1 Viva Piñata 2: Trouble in Paradise - Rare - Strategy - September 2 Fable II - Lionhead Studios - RPG - October 21 Gears of War 2 - Epic - Shooter (3rd-Person) - November 7 Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts - Rare - Platformer - November 14 The Last Remnant* - Square Enix - RPG - November 20 *Timed exclusive, also coming for PC and PS3 in the future.
