Year in Review: Q4
The final quarter of the year saw advances in California's controversial proposed legislation against violent video games, as well as huge successes for highly anticipated games like Call of Duty: Black Ops. November also saw the release of the long-awaited racing sequel Gran Turismo 5.
Watch the video below for more!
The several cameos of Kotlick in the video pretty much summed up 2010 for me. I'm waiting for 2 0 1 1 for the deluge of gaming heaven to come as this year was terribly disappointing with blockbuster flops. Ever year can't be a winner I guess.
I'm a bit disappointed that no words were said about GoldenEye, one of the best first person shooters on the Wii. Although it doesn't break any sales records, it still hit 150,000 in the first week, and after the first month has over half a million.
This video feels like it was cut short... @sithodah No, CoD, will NOT die! Do you know why? Because activision will keep reselling the same game with minor alterations, removing dedicated servers, putting a sequel in it's name, so they can sell it to all the 12yr olds who will buy it because they haven't played the old games and their big brothers did!
@mikey1611 Ya thats what I thought... The video just kinda ends doesn't it? No conclusion and it even feels almost mid-sentence.
Good quarter for the gaming industry. Not suprised about the Kinect, I said it would be this year's Ferbie (the hot item everybody couldn't wait to get their hands on during the holiday season). Almost everybody I know with kids is scrambling to get their hands on it. The Move numbers are suprising; I figured it would eventually put up good numbers once more appealing games came its way, but I guess it's outdoing even Sony's expectations. The one thing about this quarter that still perplexes me is the Call of Duty sales though. Not saying that it's a bad game (I've never played it to pass judgement) but it still tickles me how sucessful this game is after FPS fans raged in anger over the whole Infinity Ward debacle by Activision. Proves where the allegiance is: to the Call of Duty brand itself, and not Activision or Infinity Ward's former employees LOL.
@sithodah I really do hope the Duke become's the cod killer man I really do hope so cause when I no it has a confirmed released date I am pre-ordering it.
