This can’t be true can it? Gears of War 3 is Xbox 360’s first exclusive of the year?

As I look at a year where we had a solid 2011 in gaming, with the year looking to finish up strong with games like Batman Arkham City, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Battlefield 3 and Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim to name a few, a conversation I had with fellow journalists and gamers made me realize  something.

So we’re sitting there at a Game Event chatting about what else, games, we’re talking about Xbox 360’s progress and PS3’s progress so far  this generation. When it came to 2011, PS3 has had a solid year so far with their exclusive line up like Killzone 3, inFamous 2, and Resistance 3 with more still to come. As I recollected Xbox 360’s year it hit me, GEARS OF WAR 3 MIGHT JUST BE XBOX 360′ s FIRST EXCLUSIVE OF THE YEAR!!! WOW! At least their first Blockbuster AAA Exclusive right?

This can’t be true can it?  I did a little digging and I saw nothing that would refute that, sure there were a bunch of Kinect releases but I don’t think any of these would qualify in the gaming community as AAA titles. Speaking of the gaming community, I need your help, a challenge if you will. I challenge the gaming community to find me one Xbox 360 AAA title that came out this year besides Gears of War 3.

I want to refuse to believe that Gears of War 3 is Microsoft’s first– and maybe only AAA exclusive title for 2011. Are these thoughts of mine true? CCU wants to hear from you.

  1. Wow, the biasm of this article is truly sad. I thought CCU was going to be a profressional site that was dedicated to gamers, not pathetic, flame-war starters like IGN. I am truly disappointed in CCU. It’s clear to me now that this site is not for gamers. I am disappointed in you, CCU.

    As for your question, what does it matter? Nintendo hasn’t had any yet, and Sony has had two(inFamous 2 and R3)For the record, inFamous 2 and Resistance 3 have a metacritic of 82 and 83. Gears of War 3 has a 91. Just saying, in case your biasm still is trying to get the better of you. Forza 4 will be another AAA title, and unless you forgot the glowing reviews for The Gunstringer, the only AAA Kinect title…well, some gaming “journalist” you are. Also, I could of course mention the remake of Halo, but see, I’m not petty enough to do that. Plus, you are completely forgetting digital games, like Bastion. How very unprofessional and bias.

    With this, I bid you farewell, CCU. You will never be successful if you continue this biasm, and I will certainly not write for someone who clearly does not hold gaming in general as a priority passion. I will be sure to pass along the news that CCU is a biased, forgetful site to all forums I venture into. Ciao.

    • Rascal Rascal Rascal I think Your being waaaay to emotional…this in no way shape or form a bash to the Xbox 360 it was just a mere observation thru a convo I had with other gamers. I couldn’t believe it myself!!! allah the title. I was actually hoping I was wrong. but even it stands true, it only strengthens the Xbox 360 brand — for them to go whole year without an exclusive title to call there own and nobody really notices or cares may mean Microsoft doesn’t need exclusives to stay relevant. But again rascal just an observation thats all nothin more.

    • Rascal I read your comment before I read the article so I just checked it out and Scholla was not being biased. He was just stating what appears to be facts. Also at the end he clearly wanted the readers to correct him if he was wrong just in case he was wrong. I’m sorry but if you accuse someone of something you need to be right. I had expected a more mature response by you.
