The week of Halo 3

Master Chief returns back for the last time to the Xbox Franchise, this September 25th to finish the war that started and save the world again ;).

Halo 3 is definitely the most eagerly awaited and highly anticipated Game for X360 this year, and its pre-orders have already crossed spectacular sales figures. Will Halo 3 manage to live up to our expectations? Well, we will have to wait for a few more days to find out.

This year easily belongs to the Nintendo Wii and the X360. We are yet to find a great FPS/Action game for the PS3. Unfortunately fans for this genre will have to wait for Metal Gear Solid 4 : Guns of the Patriots, which will be releasing later next year.

Recently, Metroid Prime 3 demonstrated that the Wii is meant for more serious gameplay than the image it currently potrays.Using its unique controller, the developers managed to create an excellent FPS which was fun and exciting to play. Fans are now eagerly awaiting for the next star wars game from LucasArts that will use the Wii Remote as a LightSaber. Cool eh!

On the other hand, Microsoft has been bagging exclusive titles after tiles for X360. This year, we have already seen the likes of Gears of War and Bioshock, 2 amazing titles unprecedented and revolutionary in all ways. They have rasied the bar for future games and definitely critics and fans would compare the Halo 3 with these 2 coveted titles.

Having said that, PC gamers need not fret, we have Crysis and Team Fortress 2 lined up and coming soon.

With so much excitement and buzz surrounding games, lets wish the poor game developers, best of luck, as the expectations are higher than ever before.
